Mega Swagbucks Friday & get surveys through e-mail!

Posted December 28, 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.  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 

Surveys through e-mail

Swagbucks is now making it easier to complete surveys and score Swag Bucks. They have introduced Survey Profiles, which allows you to earn Swag Bucks for completing surveys that are sent right to your email inbox!

To get started, go to the "My Settings" area of and select the "Survey Profiles" tab - sign up for email surveys and confirm your email address. Then you can complete 16 different surveys that will help ensure that you get relevant surveys sent to you. Those profiles are worth 2 Swag Bucks each. Once you're finished, you'll receive surveys directly to your email and get rewarded when you complete them!

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.

    Sweeeeet, NY Yankee! Congrats!

    YAY!!!!! I collected all the Collector Bills. =D

    shelley - Basically, you earn Swagbucks as you normally would from searching through the Swagbucks search engine. For some of your search wins, you will see a Collector's Bill, which is a just like any other search win, but has a holiday or winter themed picture. There are 8 different pictures (Collector's Bills) and if you can collect all of them before 11:59pm PT on New Year's Eve, you'll get an automatic bonus of 25 Swag Bucks! You can check how many you have collected by going to Swagbucks, click on your name in the top right, click on My Swag Bucks and then click on Collectors Bills. So far I have collected 6 of them and still need Cookies and Movies. Good luck!

    wildfrench - I don't know why but it could be because there is a new tool bar you can download and you may need to do that. If will just take off your old one. You may want to try that. If it doesn't work - you'll probably want to contact Swagbucks.

    I just need 7 and 11, everything through the search bar.

  • shelleycole Dec 28, 2012

    What are the collector bills?

  • wildfrenchrose Dec 28, 2012

    Faye, any idea why I am no longer earning 2 WB daily for simply having their menu bar installed on my computer?

  • claytonsaver Dec 28, 2012

    I have 5 and have gotten at least 2 of them twice. Still need 11, 10, and 6. I search for everything through the toolbar, including "wral smart shopper"!

    There are 2 swagcodes available on the blog for 3 SBs each. The codes expire at 5 pm.

  • drcyndimd Dec 21, 2012

    I have 5 of the 8 so far. I would love to collect all of them. In the past there has always been that one elusive bill that I cannot seem to get.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Dec 21, 2012

    I just got the New Years Collector's Bill. I am up to 3 out of 8. Not sure I will collect all of them this time. Anyone collect more than 3 so far?
