Swagbucks Birthday Celebration is today!

Posted February 25, 2014

As I posted last week, Swagbucks is having a big birthday celebration on today, 2/25!   Not only are they giving away $600 each to 10 birthday winners, but they're holding a HUGE 6-Team Challenge to commemorate the big day. In fact, if you participate in the Swagbucks Birthday Team Challenge on Tues, Feb 25th, you're guaranteed to win bonus Swag Bucks! You must RSVP to join the birthday challenge HERE and contribute at least 1 point to your team. Here are the different ways to earn points:

Surveys = 4 pts
Games, Tasks, & Activities = 3 pts
Special Offers = 2 pts
Search, SBTV (Watch) = 1 pt
Daily Poll, NOSO, Swag Codes = 1 pt

At the end of the day, the members of the 1st place team each get 50 SB. Don't worry, the other teams also get bonus SB: 2nd place: 30 SB, 3rd: 25 SB, 4th: 20 SB, 5th: 15 SB, & 6th: 10 SB. In addition, the top 3 earners from EACH TEAM get 500 SB, 250 SB, & 100 SB respectively. (All bonuses will be paid by Mar 7th.)

But there's more: when you join a team, you'll have a chance to choose a birthday wish. As teams earn, each team's birthday candle will appear on the cake. When all candles have appeared and been lit, Swagbucks will announce the winning birthday wish. If you haven't signed up for Swagbucks yet to get free gift cards online, this is the BIGGEST earning day of the year and a great time to get started. 

The party starts at 7:00 am Eastern time, so get ready to celebrate and win BIG!


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 March, 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.
