* Swag Codes: Redeem Swag Codes on the desktop, through the extension or on your mobile device and not only will you increase your Swag Bucks, you’ll also contribute 1 point to your team.

AND – new for this Team Challenge…

Instagram: Upload a picture on Instagram and in the caption put @swagbucksofficial, the hashtag of your team name (#TheChocoholics, #TheGooeyChewies, #TheSourPowers) and #TrickorTreat. Every day we’ll count the number of hashtags for each team.

The team that has the most hashtags for that day will receive 15,000 points, the team with the second most hashtags will receive 10,000 points and the team with the third most will receive 5,000 points.

This happens every day so make sure you follow us on Instagram and start posting (points awarded the following day)!

Everyone that participates in this team challenge and contributes at least 1 point to their team’s total will win bonus Swag Bucks. We’ve changed the amounts, so take note below:

1st place: 40 SB
2nd place: 25 SB
3rd place: 10 SB

And finally, the Top 5 point contributors on each team will win bonus Swag Bucks as well: 500, 400, 300, 200 and 100 respectively.



Collector's Bills through 10/31

Through 10/31, you have the chance to win 4 new Trick or Treat Collector's Bills through the use of Swagbucks Search!  Random search wins will feature Trick or Treat-themed art. Trick or Treat Collector’s Bills can also be won while using the search function on the Swagbucks mobile apps (available in US only)!

If you want to see how many Collector's Bills you have so far, you can view them under "My Swag Bucks" on the Collector's Bills tab.

Here are the details:

* Starts Wednesday, 10/22/14 – Friday, 10/31/14 (ending at 12:00pm PT / 3pm ET)

* 4 Trick or Treat Collector’s Bills

* Earn 13 SB Bonus for collecting all 4 (credits immediately once you get the 4th one)

To collect them all, just use Swagbucks Search as often as possible. I downloaded the Swagbucks toolbar on my computer so the search box is right there on the screen anytime I need to search the Internet for any information. Periodically, you will win different Collector's Bills worth various Swag Bucks amounts.

Collect all 4 Bills and you will get 13 bonus Swagbucks in addition to all your Search wins! Good luck!

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 right now, 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.

    observant - I have to agree regarding this set of Collector's Bills. Still none for me although I have earned SB through search each day, none of them are Collector's Bills. Very odd.

    triciaandron - I hope you get the rest of the Collector's Bills by 10/31!

  • observant Oct 27, 2014

    The code posted about 4 to 5 minutes early !
    I checked it to be sure it was valid before sharing -
    This set of collector's bill s are awful !
    I only have gotten 4 all week - 3 of same thing.

  • Pepper2 Oct 27, 2014

    Thanks to everyone for all the codes today :)

    Faye - I got a collector's bill the first day but have not gotten one since

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2014

    Thank you, observant! You are quick!

    I hope many of you got all the codes this time!

    Since I have not received even 1 of the Collector's Bills yet, I am happy to have the Extravaganza today. lol

  • observant Oct 27, 2014

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2014

    4th code is: BROOMSTICK

    Worth 4 SB until 7 pm! :-)

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2014

    triciaandron - that is odd! But awesome you for the 10 SB's!

    And I am also a certified chocoholic but I got the Gooey team. Looks like the gooeys and the sours will be competing for second place unless they even it out with the next people who join teams.

    beths - thanks for posting the code!

  • Pepper2 Oct 27, 2014

    Weirdest SB day ever- First I get team "sour power" ( and I am for real a chocoholic ). Sours were in the lead this morning ( and now we are in last place ). I had to miss the 2nd code but made it home just in time for the 3rd one ( Thanks Faye ). Entered the 3rd code and was pleasantly surprised to get 10 sb instead of 6. WhooHoo!!! By the way, there will be no losers at the end of this challenge. If you take part in the game you are already a winner !!!

    Enter CandyIsDandy in the Swag Code box until 5pm EST for 6 Swag Bucks!
