Swagbucks Promo: Double Encrave earnings!

Posted June 29, 2015 is doubling the amount of Swag Bucks you earn from Encrave for the next two days! The promotion runs from Monday, June 29th to Tuesday, June 30th.

For US-based Swagbucks members, that includes nGage or the Daily Crave too!

How it works: For all the Encrave Swag Bucks you get on Monday, you'll receive that same amount again on Tuesday as a bonus. Same goes for Tuesday: the SB you earn on Tuesday from Encrave will be credited as a bonus on Wednesday. That's getting a double payout for the same thing!

Encrave is a great way to get closer and closer to your next gift card by browsing videos, articles, slideshows and sites online. You can find the Encrave link HERE or go to the homepage of and click on the Daily Crave link on the left side of the page under the To Do List. You can also find the Encrave link under the Discover tab on the homepage. And by the way, I do all 4 activities on the To Do List (found on the Swagbucks homepage) every day to earn easy Swag Bucks.

Today, I cashed out my Swag Bucks for a Sheetz giftcard to use while on an upcoming trip.

FYI - the promotion runs Monday and Tuesday on Pacific Daylight Time so it does not start crediting 2X Encraves until 3 am EST)

New to Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is 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, 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 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE and 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.

    I'm never far away, Faye... Somehow I ended up with a 50 SB bonus from that extravaganza, and I have no idea how! guess I got lucky and ended up on the winning team. Score!

    Stephanie - I totally agree! Heading there to start running them now. And good to see you posting again on the blog. We missed you at the last SB extravaganza. :-)

    I *love* that this promotion doesn't require us to sign up or join a team or any of that -- just do the encraves (and many of them are "auto run") and rake in the SB!

    Yesterday I managed 148 SB from encraves alone, and I was away for a good bit of the day. :-)
