Mega Swagbucks Friday & new promotion!

Posted October 12, 2012

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.

There is also a new Halloween themed challenge that gives you a chance to earn even more Swagbucks!  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

Scream Challenge

The Scream Challenge: Zombies vs. Vampires started last week and it's your chance to earn even more Swagbucks!  From now until the end of October, Swaggernauts will have the chance to join a team (Zombies or Vampires) and earn points for their team by completing the Daily Ghoul Meter. Every day is another chance to score a point and help your team rise from the dead. The team with the most points at the end of the month is declared ultimate monster and the winning team gets even more bonus Swag Bucks.  For all the details, head to Swagbucks HERE.   FYI - they assigned me to Team Zombie...and we are still winning! Go Team Zombie!

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.

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

    Thanks, Faye -- it straightened up by the end of morning. I wonder if they were doing some website changes. I'm happy now -- I just made my goal. Woohoo! There was a really easy offer in my inbox to make 18 Swagbucks with a popcorn coupon. Those of you haven't checked your inbox, go do it!

    thewayitis - that's really odd. You may want to send them an e-mail to let them know something is off.

    I am not very happy with Swagbucks this morning. My Swagbucks TV is not crediting, and I don't know why. It started last night, and continued this morning -- I only get credit for one out of every 4 or 5 videos watched. I'll never make goal at this rate.

    I just wish I knew why. I've restarted my computer this morning, too.

    Score! Nicely done, Stephanie!
