Swagbucks $5 gift cards are 450 SB's today only!

Posted August 1, 2013


Today only, August 1, Swagbucks is offering any $5 gift card from the Swag Store for 450 Swag Bucks, instead of the normal 500 Swag Bucks!


Here are the details:

Swagbucks has a special sale running in its Rewards Store on August 1st - from midnight to midnight (Pacific Time) all $5 US, Canadian and Australian Gift Cards will only be 450 Swag Bucks! You still have a limit of two per day, but now you can get any $5 Gift Card you want and still have extra left over!

If you are not signed up for Swagbucks, you should be! It's a super easy way to earn giftcards to places like CVS, Starbucks and

New to Swagbucks?

How do you get these super Swagbucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (instead of Google, for instance). I actually have the Swag Bucks 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, you earn points for searching, called Swag Bucks.  Cash in the Swag Bucks for gift cards!  There are also a number of other ways to earn Swag Bucks including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos and more.

If you are on Twitter or Facebook, Swagbucks also posts codes that will earn you additional Swag Bucks. Once you find a code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Swagbucks HERE.

You are welcome to post the codes you find right here on this blog to share with everyone else.

If you are new to Swagbucks, I bet you are wondering what you do with the Swagbucks points you earn. They can be cashed in for gift cards, books, magazines, movies and much more! I usually cash mine in for CVS or gift cards. A $5 CVS, Starbucks, or Amazon gift card is 500 Swag Bucks. It's such an easy way to score some freebies while doing the same searches you already do.

    I was leary of the Target one as when I read the comments there was some confusion on how to use them including in the stores. I did however pick up two of them to EB Games (I know I will be doing some shopping there at Christmas.

    Stephanie - Good question! I have ordered CVS, Starbucks, and Amazon gift cards through SB. The CVS and Starbucks ones are printable and you just bring them in to the store and the cashier scans the bar code like a regular plastic gift card. The purchase amount comes off and then the remaining balance can be spent at another time (also like a regular plastic gift card). Sometimes the bar code won't scan but then they enter it in manually.

    I have not ordered the Target or Lowes gift cards, but the Lowes gift card looks like it works just like CVS. The Target one has to be saved to your smart phone so you have to have a mobile device to use it in stores.

    You can see a sample of the e-gift card for each store and redemption instructions for each gift card when you click on the gift card. Then click on "To view a sample e-Gift Card and a complete list of the Terms & Conditions click here" to see the specific details of each card.

    Hope that helps!

    I've heard you talk about using the CVS egift cards, but have you ever bought or used the Target, Lowe's, or restaurant e-gift cards? I was just wondering how they "work".

    I usually get 5 $5 amazon gift cards each month, since I can get just about anything I might want from them, and they have such outstanding services. But with this sale, well, I was considering branching out....
