Swagbucks is offering an excellent deal on gift card purchases through MyGiftCardsPlus until Monday!

Earn an extra 25% Cash Back on your Gift Card purchases from MyGiftCardsPlus! Extra 25% will be applied at checkout. SB will be awarded when the gift card is delivered, not at time of purchase.

There are tons of available gift cards to purchase including CVS, Applebee's, Red Robin, Logans, IHOP, Cracker Barrel, Domino's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Papa John's, Chili's, Macaroni Grill, Maggiano's, Cold Stone, TGI Friday's, Groupon, Staples, Old Navy, Gap, Burlington Coat Factory, Bass Pro Shops, JCPenney, ToysRUs, GameStop, Home Depot and so many more!

If you use the gift cards you purchase to shop online through the Swagbucks Shop & Earn section, you'll then earn SB points on the purchase! Use a credit card with cash back rewards to buy the gift cards at MyGiftCardsPlus and snag even more savings!

Once you purchase a gift card, it will be sent electronically to your e-mail. You print it out and use it to shop at the store or go to the restaurant or shop through the store's website.

Bonus SB Points

NEW Swagbucks users: if you sign up for Swagbucks through this Swagbucks link and purchase your first Gift Card on or before Sunday, January 17th, you will also earn a 50 SB Bonus in addition to the extra 25% Cash Back! Only new Swagbucks users who sign up and make a purchase before 11:59 PST on 1/17/15 through the link are eligible for 50 SB Bonus.

Your first Gift Card purchase on Monday, January 18th means your first Gift Card purchase made on that day. If you have made a MyGiftCardsPlus purchase prior to Monday, January 18th you will still receive the 100 SB Bonus.

Since I am a current Swagbucks user, I am definitely going to buy at least one of my gift cards on Monday to get the extra 100 SB bonus.

Please Note: The SB per dollar reward is based on earnings stated on You will not earn an additional SB award unless otherwise stated at The 25% cash back if off of the amount of SB you earn for the purchase, not off of the total amount of the gift cards purchase. To find out how much you will earn simply click on the gift card you want and the award amount is listed. You will receive a tracking link for your MyGiftCardsPlus visit however, your SB will not credit under Shop and Earn, it will credit under your general SB Ledger.

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.
