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.

    Trypto Fans for me too. Oh well! Anyone here on the Pie Guys?

  • swbjfb Nov 18, 2014

    I was assigned to the Trypto Fans, currently last place.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Nov 18, 2014

    Sorry Stephanie. :-( I'm on the team that is currently 2nd place - which is where I ended up during the last challenge. We'll see how this one turns out.

    Hope you have a good day, anyway. :-)

    Imagine my surprise at being assigned to the (current) last-placed team -- the Trypto Fans. :-)

    I've got other things going on today and tomorrow, so I'll be doing good to reach my first goal, let alone worry about scoring significant points for my team. No leader board in sight for me this time!
