Great Birchbox offer through Swagbucks

Posted September 15

Swagbucks, the online rewards site that puts cash back in your wallet, has a great offer today, September 15, through Birchbox. You get 2000 SB (which is the equivalent of $20 in gift cards) for signing up!

Birchbox is an easy way to shop for beauty. Sign up for a monthly delivery of five beauty samples tailored to your skin, hair, and style - for just $10/month! Subscribe on Swagbucks through this link TODAY (September 15) to get your 2000 SB and get paid to try it out!

Haven't tried Swagbucks yet? This is a great way to do it, and when you sign up through the link above and get your 2000 SB, you'll get a bonus 300 SB at the end of the month. So you spend $10 to try Birchbox, which gets you 2300 SB, which you can turn into $23 worth of gift cards!

I just ordered this offer and used the coupon code EXTRABB at checkout to get another free box! My total was $10 and the 2,000 SB points credited to my Swagbucks account immediately! I plan to use the products as part of the holiday gifts for my daughters.

New to Swagbucks?

If you don't know about Swagbucks yet, it's the largest rewards website that gives people free gift cards for the things they do online (searching, shopping, watching videos, playing games and more). You earn points called SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, CVS, Lowes, Starbucks, Paypal, Bass Pro Shops, Kohl's and so many more! It's free to join and I have earned a bunch of gift cards in the many years I have been a member.

How do you get these SB points? There are lots of ways.

* Search online: Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (instead of Google). I actually have the Swagbucks toolbar installed on my desktop and it places a search box right on my screen making it super easy to search. Every once in a while, they award SB points just for doing the searches I used to do using Google.

* Take surveys on their website

* Answer the daily poll

* Watch videos through their website or multiple mobile apps (I earn about 80 - 100 SB a day doing this)

* Use their online shopping portal (I do most of my online shopping at major retailers who are part of the Swagbucks Shop and Earn program (like,, and more) and earn Swagbucks every time I shop. Just this week, I was credited with 562 SB points (worth $5.62 in gift cards) for an online purchase I made a few weeks ago.

* Play games

* Participate in special Swag Code events

* Enter the daily Swag Code (which we usually let you know about here on the blog each day). Swagbucks posts bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. If you have the Swagbucks Mobile App, it will buzz when there is a new code. When the code becomes available each day, one of us posts it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for an hour usually. Once you get the code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

As I posted above, new members get a 70 SB bonus when you sign up HERE. To get the bonus SB points, click the text that reads "I have a sign up code" during registration and then enter the code: SMARTSHOPPER to get the bonus. Make sure you use all caps since it is case sensitive.

    Amomoftwo - I am sooooooooooooooooo excited for Jessica (and for you)!! I truly cannot believe she is having a baby. It was probably 10 years ago when I taught the class where we met. Where does the time go?? Sending you big grandma-to-be hugs!

    And congrats on the extra SB from buying your washer dryer. Well done!

    Congratulations amomoftwo!!!! Girls are so much fun......and baby granddaughters are even better (from what my mom says lol)

    AND going to use all my SB for gift cards for our first grandchild!! Yes, Jessica and her hubby are expecting a baby girl February 1!! Can you believe it? She was in early high school when we first met you at our church's coupon class...and now she's clipping on her own!!

    I am headed that way now!!! Faye, thanks so much for all the Swagbuck info...I have tried many "extra" programs but none as good as Swagbucks...just bought a new washer dryer at Lowe's and went through Swagbucks to earn more SB!

    I just ordered my box and used the promo code and it indicates I'll get a free box. Total was $10. My 2000 Swagbucks credited immediately! Depending on what is in them, I am going to use the 2 boxes (or some of the items) as part of the holiday gifts for my teenage daughters. I hope they are fabulous!

    jdouglas13 - I'm actually going to do this one and then cancel after the first month more than likely. I just saw on the SB FB page that others have used the code EXTRABB and were able to get a second box for free. Going to try it now. :-)

    That's a great deal. Very tempting!! :)
