Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted March 1, 2013




It is Mega Swagbucks Friday and today is the day they award larger than normal Swagbucks just for using the Swagbucks site when you search for information on the Internet. 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. 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 links to codes that will earn you additional Swag Bucks. Once you click the link they give you and find the code (they will tell you how to find it) you then copy and paste the code into the "Gimme" box on the homepage of Swagbucks HERE. The Gimme box is on the right side of the page under the My Account section where it indicates: Enter your Swag Code.

You are welcome to post links to where these awesome codes codes are located, like their Facebook page or the Swagbucks Twitter page or the Swagbucks blog, but do NOT post the actual codes. Feel free to post the location of codes in the Comments section of this post or in the Share the Deals section here on the blog each day but again, please do not post the actual Swag Bucks code. That's against Swagbucks policy.

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 Amazon gift card code is only 450 Swag Bucks and a $5 Starbucks gift card is 635 Swag Bucks. It's such an easy way to score some freebies while doing the same searches you already do.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members get 30 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE.

    Thanks drcyndimd!

    libbyk - print coupons of your choice from Swag Bucks & once they are redeemed at any store you will receive 10 swag bucks for each one used. Like Saving Star, coupons used at HT take longer to receive the swag bucks. I try to use these coupons b/f others b/c of the added bonus & to differentiate them I put a mark on the ones from Swag Bucks using a highlighter. I hope this helps.

    How do the Swagbucks coupons work? Do we just redeem them and then they credit to our Swagbucks account? I have been a bit confused about this.

    I just got 10 Swag Bucks. Happy with that. Thanks for informing me about Swag Bucks.

    I've only won 10 Swag Bucks so far, but I was credited with Swag Bucks for coupons used last week at HT's Super Doubles! I print most of my coupons from Swag Bucks for just that reason (they're from & I'm always pleasantly surprised when I receive credit for using them.

    I just won 11 Swag Bucks on a search! Can anyone top that today? :-)
