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 (searching, shopping, watching videos, playing games and more). You earn points called SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, CVS, Lowes, Starbucks, Paypal, Bass Pro Shops, Kohl's and so many more!

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 SB points? There are lots of ways.

* Search online: 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.

* Take surveys on their website

* Answer the daily poll

* Watch videos through their website or multiple mobile apps (I earn about 80 - 100 SB a day doing this)

* Use their online shopping portal (I do most of my online shopping at major retailers who are part of the Swagbucks Shop and Earn program (like,, and more) and earn Swagbucks every time I shop. Just this week, I was credited with 562 SB points (worth $5.62 in gift cards) for an online purchase I made a few weeks ago.

* Play games

* Participate in special Swag Code events

* Enter the daily Swag Code (which we usually let you know about here on the blog each day). Swagbucks posts bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. If you have the Swagbucks Mobile App, it will buzz when there is a new code. When the code becomes available each day, one of us posts it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for an hour usually. Once you get the code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

As I posted above, new members get a 70 SB bonus when you sign up at HERE. 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.

How I earn Swagbucks every day

Swagbucks can take up as little or as much time as you want. Most of the activities I chose to do are ones I can do passively while I am working because I don’t have a bunch of time to devote to it.

When you make your 1st Daily Goal you get an additional bonus and my goal each day is to reach my 1st goal. It’s usually between 90 and 105 SB per day. I usually don’t get enough SB in a day to make my 2nd goal. If you make your 1st goal all month long, you get an additional 300 SB at the beginning of the next month in addition to the daily goal bonus you make for each day you make your goal.

These are the activities I do every day and get about 100 SB each day doing them.

* Running videos on my phone through the Swagbucks App (you can earn up to 36 SB per day)

*Running videos through Watch on my desktop computer (you can earn something like 500 per day but I get about 50 - 70 per day)

* Take the Daily Poll for 1 SB (link is on the homepage on the left side)

* Go through the Daily Offers (NOSO offers) every day (2 SB). For NOSO, I just click More Deals to move on to the next one (unless I see one I want to sign up for). The link for NOSO is on the homepage on the left side.

*Enter the daily Swag Code for 2 – 4 SB each day. They usually post it on their Facebook page sometime between 12 noon and 7 pm on the hour. I have the Swagbucks app and it buzzes when there is a new code. EVen if I am not t my computer, I can enter it in the Swagbucks Mobile App and still get the points. EVery Monday, the code is only available to enter in teh Mobile App.

*I was doing nCraves every day for many more SB’s but for the last few weeks, I have not had any nCraves available, unfortunately. I am hoping they come back soon. They are located in the Watch section and it’s faster to get SB points with nCraves than it is with Watch videos.

* Before I shop online anywhere, I first go to Swagbucks Shop to see if they are a Swagbucks participating store. If so, I buy through the Swagbucks portal to earn SB points just by making purchases I already planned to make. I’ll be getting back 288 SB points in the next week from a purchase I made online a few weeks ago at Amazon. The stores I usually shop online through Swagbucks are Amazon, Kohl’s, Walmart, and Groupon. They have hundreds of different participating merchants from travel sites to retailers and more.

Some people have good luck with the surveys, which can pay out big SB points. I usually get disqualified and I don’t really have any time for taking surveys these days so I stopped doing them. I found that many of the surveys take way too long to get through the qualifying questions before you can even see if you qualify to take the real survey.

I also go to the Discover section when I have extra time to see if there are any offers I want to do in the Radium One, Trial Pay or OfferToro section. There are usually a few articles in the Radium One section that only require you to click on them to get the 1 SB. Those are usually ones that have Article or Therapy in the title like the Insulin Therapy one today or the Fighting Diabetes Article today. Most of them require too much time to click through all the screens to be worth my time. And the ones with a required Captcha at the end often don’t credit for me so I don’t do those anymore.

I hope that helps to get you started! Have fun and good luck!

    ok...Faye, your tips have been awesome! I have earned 632 in just 2 days...and I have 960 coming from shopping online at Home Depot for my new dishwasher; I have 560 coming from a purchase on Amazon...and I earned 2580 this week by booking two nights at a hotel using the Swagbucks website! I think I am on to something with your great tips!

    Amomoftwo and GranOFTwenty - I hope it helps to up your daily SB earnings!

  • GranOFTwenty Jan 13, 2016

    All are welcome for the 6 pm code - I am glad I could share.

  • GranOFTwenty Jan 13, 2016

    Faye - THANKS ! I am going to keep your "Daily Plan" and see how well I do . I will check my phone tomorrow - all I can get in the WATCH part of the app is movie trailers - they do play most of the time without having to baby sit and the max is 36 per day . I have done the other videos on the PC and laptop ( some are interesting if I have time to pay attention !) but I have to keep clicking to get them to move to the next one . Always learning ... Thanks for your help !

  • Amomoftwo Jan 13, 2016

    YEAH!! that's what I am looking for! Thanks so much....esp. on such a busy day!

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jan 13, 2016

    Amomoftwo - I just posted a somewhat indepth list of the things I do every day to make my goal on Swagbucks. It's too long to post as a comment so I added it to the bottom of the Extravaganza post today. Just click the link above for the Swagbucks Swag Code Extravaganza and it will take you to the post. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see my comment. I hope that helps.

    If others do different things to make their goal, please let us know!

    GranOFTwenty - do you have the Swagubcks Mobile App loaded? Go to Watch and then you can view all kinds of videos including a Recipes section. I run the Recipes, Travel, Health and News ones a lot. You can get up to 36 SB per day watching those. For each set of 5 you watch, you get 2 SB. I sit my phone down next to me while I am working on the computer and start the first video and they automatically advance to the next one so I don't have to do anything else unless it has a glitch, a get a call or I need to use my phone for another reason.
