Posted April 5, 2013 has offered to give away a $10 gift card to Smart Shopper readers EVERY Friday for 5 weeks! This is week 3 and the best part is that you get to pick the gift card you want from their huge selection of available cards! Read on for all the details on how to enter this week's giveaway!

If you are new to Swagbucks and would love to earn free and easy gift cards to stores including CVS, and Starbucks, you will want to sign up for this FREE website now. They are offering a new sign-up bonus for Smart Shopper readers through April 19! See below for the details and the sign-up bonus code.

If you ever shop at, you will want to check out the new Walmart promotion they are running through their Shop & Earn section. There is even a SB rebate involved!

Enter to Win the Giveaway

To enter the giveaway, post a comment below sharing the most recent thing you cashed in your Swag Bucks for. I got a $10 CVS gift card. Love those things!

If you are just signing up for Swagbucks today, you can enter by posting that you just signed up and that's good enough to get you entered!

I will randomly pick the winner for this week's gift card on Tuesday, April 9 at 11:00 pm. If you win, you then get to pick any $10 gift card from the Rewards Store at!  

Important info: You have to be a Swagbucks member to get the gift card, so if you are not signed up yet, now is the time because of the extra bonus sign-up code found below!

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 usually get 30 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE but through Friday, April 19, you can score an additional 70 Swag Bucks for a total of 100 Swag Bucks! To get the bonus Swag Bucks, click the text that reads "I have a sign up code" during registration and then enter the code: SMARTSPEND70

3X the Walmart Swag Bucks + 50 SB Rebate 

If you're a fan of Walmart, you're in luck. Swagbucks is now offering two great promotions to give you more bang for your (Swag) buck. In their Shop & Earn, you can now earn triple the Swag Bucks on Walmart purchases through March 31st. That's 6 SB for every dollar you spend at Walmart. This is a great way to get more value out of your online shopping.

The Walmart action doesn't end there. If you snag a $5 Walmart gift card at their Rewards Store and make an eligible Walmart purchase on Shop & Earn by March 31st, you'll receive 50 SB on your account. The 50 SB rebates will be applied to your account by April 7th.

    I just received a $25 Amazon gift card which made it possible for me to buy bedroom drapes I really wanted. I haven't had drapes in that room for 4 years. Very happy!!

  • New York Yankee Apr 7, 2013

    I like the $5 Amazon gift cards as well. It made it nice this past Christmas when I was able to pick 3 names off the angel tree instead of one. =)

  • toshiajordan Apr 7, 2013

    I got a $5 amazon gift card.

  • buhrmandavis Apr 7, 2013

    I cashed my swagbucks for an Amazon gift card. I use my amazon gift cards for books for my kindle, scrapbook supplies, and gifts for family.

  • crossfireman Apr 6, 2013

    The most i've ever cashed my swagbucks in was for a $20 Ultimate Game Card swagstakes in which i spent a total of 480SB. But the most amazing thing was that I actually won and i even posted a video on Youtube; my youtube user is Falseman118. I also posted a video of me wasting 550SB on a $25 paypal cash swagstakes.

  • soojmagooj Apr 6, 2013
