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, 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.

    Whoops, I guess that's Lilies, not Lillies.

    I'm on the "What in Carnation" team. I've been out most of the day, and just got home a little over an hour ago, and already have 505 team points! Just wish I had that many SB for the day so far. :-)

    swbjfb - this challenge is a bit different. They are not counting some things they have counted in the past, like encrave, but they do have this cool new option to earn 25 points when you click on the Swag Bloom's Shopping Page (from the Swag Bloom challenge main page). After you click on the Shopping Page link from the challenge home page, you click on a store name then click through to go to the store's website. Then you get 25 points added to your team total right away. You don't get swag bucks for it, but it's an easy 25 points and you can do it a bunch of times. There is a limit of 20 shop clicks (so 500 points). I also earned through mobile SBTV today and through Special Offers by playing 1 SB videos (while I work on other screens).

    I am on your team, Daisies. What is the best way to get points?

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Apr 20, 2015

    So far we are all on different teams - how fun! I have contributed 515 points for my team so far, but I have not really had time to mess with it much today. Maybe later tonight. Good luck to everyone!

    War of the Roses team for me - time to earn some points! =)
