Bats vs. Cats

Things are getting spooky at Swagbucks starting today with their Bats vs Cats Halloween Team Challenge! Starting at 3:00 pm EST on Monday 10/21, earn points for your team (Bats or Cats) by winning Swag Bucks through Searching, playing Games, watching SBTV and SBTV Mobile (both iPhone and Android apps), completing Special Offers and taking Surveys. You can join a team at Swagbucks on Monday at 3 when the fun starts!

Each activity equates to a different point value:

* Search and Win – 2 points (every time you earn Swag Bucks using Search adds 2 points to your team total)

* Play Games - 3 points (every time you earn Swag Bucks playing games adds 3 points to the team total)

* Watch SBTV – 4 points (every time you earn Swag Bucks watching SBTV and SBTV Mobile adds 4 points to your team total) (both iPhone and Android apps!)

* Discover Special Offers – 2 points (every time you earn Swag Bucks for completing a Special Offer adds 2 points to your team total) Take Surveys - 4 points – (every time you earn Swag Bucks for completing a survey adds 4 points to your team total).

The team with the most points at the end of Bats vs Cats (Midnight PT Thurs. Oct 31) is declared the winner. All members on the winning team that have contributed at least 1 point during the competition will get a bonus of 25 Swag Bucks paid out no later than 11/11/13. All members of the second place team who contribute will get a 10 Swag Bucks bonus. The highest earner on each team gets an additional 500 Swag Bucks bonus.

Are you a Bat or a Cat?

Halloween Collector's Bills:

As part of Swagbucks' Halloween celebrations they're launching a new set of Collector's Bills this week. If you haven't seen Collector's Bills before, they're special Swag Bucks that you win randomly through their search engine. They'll have special Halloween-themed artwork and there are five different designs. They're available starting at 12:01am on Monday, October 21st and if you can win them all before November 1st you'll get an automatic 13 Swag Buck bonus added to your account!

New to Swagbucks?

If you don't know about Swagbucks yet, it's the largest rewards website that gives people free gift cards for the things they do online. You earn points (called Swag Bucks) for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks and many more options!

How do you get these super Swag Bucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (instead of Google). I actually have the Swagbucks toolbar installed on my desktop and it places a search box right on my screen making it super easy to search. Every once in a while, they award Swag Bucks just for doing the searches I used to do using Google. There are also a number of other ways to earn Swag Bucks including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos, playing games, referring friends and more.

Swagbucks also posts additional bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages. When a Smart Shopper reader finds a code (usually one per day), they post it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for a couple hours usually. Once you find a code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Swagbucks HERE . Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

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 the end of October, 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: SMARTSHOPPER to get the bonus. Make sure you use all caps since it is case sensitive.
