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!

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.

    jdouglas13 - YAY! I knew you would love Swagbucks! I just used a Swagbucks GC at CVS tonight. :-)

    Not sure if you already know this but once per month you can get a $25 GC for only 2200 SB points (a discount of 300 SB points). It only lets you do it for 1 GC per month, but all of the GC's count except Paypal so it's a great deal.

    Thanks Faye! :) I thought I was just losing out on them. I met the daily goal a number of times (I was trying for the 7 days in a row). I should be getting my $25 Amazon GC very soon!

    Jdouglas - I looked up the specifics and the Daily Goal bonuses are paid out on the 5th of each month. If the 5th falls on a weekend or holiday, the bonus is paid out the next business day. Here are the details in the Help section:

    jdouglas13 - bonus SB for meeting daily and multi-day goals are credited the next month. Were the daily goals reached in AUgust? If so, you will see them in early Sept. And congrats on making your goals!!

    Speaking of Swagbucks, if I hit my first daily goal, at what point do I see the bonus swagbucks credited? I've hit the goal a few times now, but I don't think I got the bonus.
