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. AND there is a discount on all gift cards from now until the end of the year, making your Swag Bucks worth even more! 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 Amazon.com.
Changes to gift cards
One of the huge benefits of earning Swag Bucks, is that you can cash them in for gift cards to major retailers! Now through the end of the year, Swagbucks is offering some additional benefits when it comes to gift cards. Here are the details from the Swagbucks gurus:
"Starting on November 1st, for the rest of the year the Swagbucks Swag Store will be bringing you lower prices and limitless rewards. To break it down for you, all $5 gift cards will now be 500 Swag Bucks, $10 gift cards will be 1000 Swag Bucks, $25 Gift Cards will be 2500 Swag Bucks and so on. This excludes the $5 Amazon.com, which remains the bargain price of 450 SB.
Now you get more bang for your (Swag) Bucks, and with your leftover Swag Bucks, you can now snag even more rewards, because our old monthly redemption limits (except the $5 Amazon.com Gift Card) will be gone. You’re still limited to 2 rewards per day, but you don’t have to worry about which prizes you’re redeeming, because Swagbucks just expanded your monthly SB budget!"
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 Amazon.com 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.
