Swagbucks Birthday Blowout is today!

Posted February 25, 2013


Today is the big Swagbucks Birthday Blowout! Read on for all the details and ways to earn gift cards to tons of great stores!


Swagbucks 5th Birthday Blowout!

Swagbucks is celebrating their 5th birthday, and they're doing it in a big way. There are $1000 cash prizes for five lucky Swaggernauts and the chance to win up to 135 bonus SB on their birthday.

You'll also earn Double Swag Bucks in Shop & Earn! Starting at midnight on Monday, Feb 25th and lasting until midnight on Tuesday, all stores in Shop & Earn will give you double the Swag Bucks per dollar spent. In addition to prizes and bonus SB, it's better than double the cash back. This only lasts on Swagbucks.com's brithday, so make sure to shop then to earn your 2X SB.

How to Earn Birthday Bash Swag Bucks

Everytime you see that a new code has been posted, please let us know where to find the code. Is it on the Swagbucks blog, on their Facebook page or on their Twitter page? Remember - please do not post the actual codes. It's not allowed per Swagbucks policy.

To find many of the Swag Codes, head to the Birthday Bash page through the Swagbucks blog (link is on the Swagbucks homepage).

As we all earn Swag Bucks doing various activities today, they will track them and issue codes when we reach certain milestones.

Each time a segment of a tracking meter is filled, a Swag Code will be shown on the diagram on the birthday bash page.

Each code is worth 5 Swag Bucks and will be available for only 30 minutes.

When each code expires, a puzzle piece on the diagram will fall away, showing part of the picture hidden underneath. Once you can see the whole picture, solve the puzzle to find the clue for a final bonus and something new at Swagbucks!

New to Swagbucks?

If you're not a member of Swagbucks yet, join me and use the code 5THBIRTHDAY during registration - you'll start with 120 Swag Bucks instead of the usual 30 Swag Bucks you get when you sign up! The code is good through the month of February. Click HERE to register.

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, shopping 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 click the cirle at the top of the Swagbucks homepage and copy and paste the code into the code box that will appear when you click the circle.

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.

    Looks like the site crashed. It really is a birthday BLOWOUT! lol Hopefully it will be up and running soon. Or they will have pity on us and just give us the silly SB's after this long birthday celebration. :-)
