Posted November 6, 2015

We've been writing about how to earn free gift cards on Swagbucks for a long time including sharing our tips and tricks on how to get the most out of the site. Especially around the holidays, every last penny counts and Swagbucks is a super easy way to help you earn that little extra to make the holiday budget work.

Now Swagbucks is looking for stories from current or future Swagbucks members describing what you could do or have done with that little extra help Swagbucks provides. Members who get their stories published receive 1,000 SB!

Little Extra Stories

Do you have a little, great Swagbucks story to share about how to earn that important little extra on Swagbucks?

Heather from Meriden, CT shares her incredible story of how Swagbucks helped her get back on her feet after a house fire took everything, here:

“Thank goodness for Swagbucks, I was able to get gift cards and begin the task of replacing our clothing and our toddler’s toys and books. It really helped during a stressful time to have a little of the financial burden lifted.”

What could you do (or did you do) with a little extra?

Send your story to goodpeople@swagbucks.com and include your

1. Name
2. Swag Name
3. Where you are from: city/state
4. How you first came to Swagbucks
5. Your favorite ways of earning SB
6. A photo

Members who get their stories published receive 1,000 SB.

If you would like to nominate another member to be featured on A Little Extra Stories, please create a video and either post it on Twitter (make sure to include @swagbucks and #SBgoodpeople in your message), post it on our Facebook wall or send a link (or it) via email to goodpeople@swagbucks.com. Send them an email to let them know no matter what. If they choose that story, the person you nominate will get 1,000 SB and you will get 500 SB!

If they don't tell your story this week, it doesn’t mean they won’t tell it in the future. There are so many great stories to share. Look forward to hearing yours!

How Do I Get Collector’s Bills?

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 SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks and many more options! It's free to join and I have earned a bunch of gift cards in the many years I have been a member.

How do you get these super SB points? 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 SB points just for doing the searches I used to do using Google. There are also a number of other ways to earn SB points including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos, playing games, referring friends, using their online shopping portal, special Swag Code events and more.

Swagbucks also posts additional bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. 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 SB points when you sign up HERE and right now, you can score an additional 70 SB for a total of 100 SB! To get the bonus SB points, 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.

    I just submitted my Little Extra story to Swagbucks. Guess I just wait to see if they use it. Anyone else submit a story?

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Nov 6, 2015

    That's reallt impressive on the GC turnaround, Stephanie! And bikes are such a great healthy gift. I am aldo happy about the CB amounts this time and the fact that I actually got a number of them already.

    My daily 1st goal today is 99 and I am at 32 so far. Getting there!

  • senglish27529 Nov 6, 2015

    I just got a 15 SB search win, but it wasn't a collector bill. Still, I'm pretty happy with the 15!

    It looks like Swagbucks has stepped up their game on the collector bill amounts this time. I don't remember the series ever having so many values this high before. Yay Swagbucks!

    I also got exceedingly fast turnaround on a couple of giftcards already this month. We're buying bicycles this year for Christmas, and with Swagbucks plus credit card points, we're hoping to get 3 adult bicycles, plus seats (for the senior adults) and helmets, for something around $100 out of pocket. The giftcards we ordered from Swagbucks on Sunday were delivered on Monday. Wow!
