Giveaway: $10 gift card from Swagbucks!

Posted April 12, 2013 has offered to give away a $10 gift card to Smart Shopper readers EVERY Friday for 5 weeks! This is week 4 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.

Enter to Win the Giveaway

To enter the giveaway, post a comment below sharing how many Swag Bucks you earned the last time your received them for a Swagbucks search. I earned 9 Swag Bucks from searching on Thursday.  Hopefully you will earn a bunch today since it's Mega Swagbucks Friday and Swag Bucks earned today through searching are usually larger than those earned the rest of the week. 

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 16 at 1:00 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.

Swagbucks now allows members to post the actual Swag Bucks codes (not just where to find the codes) so feel free to post a code in the Share the Deals section any time you find one!

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
