Sign Up For Swagbucks And Earn Free Gift Cards…

What are Swagbucks?

Swagbucks  is a virtual currency that you earn on by doing the things you do every day – searching the web, shopping at your favorite retailers, submitting polls, and completing special offers.

If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet and want to get started… You can go HERE to sign up…  Last Christmas I was able to do almost all my Christmas shopping… FOR FREE because of Swagbucks… It was pretty sweet.

Earning FREE GIFT cards is easy… in fact it only takes 450 Swagbucks to earn a $5 gift card.

Here are a few tips to earning Swagbucks:

Taking Surveys
Score 1 Swag Buck per day just for clicking on the Survey page… there are multiple surveys you can take to earn higher amounts ranging from 50 Swagbucks to 200+ (I once earned 150 Swagbucks for a survey).

“Each survey is looking for a unique type of person to complete the questionnaire. There may be times when you do not qualify for a survey based on the answers you enter. The “Odds” percentage gives you an indication of how difficult it may be to qualify for that survey. The higher the odds, the greater the likelihood that you’ll qualify for the survey.”

Shopping at the Shop & Earn Mall

Select one of the partnering online retailers and earn 2 Swag Buck for every dollar you spend. I have used this feature several times in the last year. Once I ordered a wedding gift online from Macy’s and scored 150 points. Another time I bought my daughter some running shoes thru … and I also scored a bunch of points when my husband ordered his new camera online as well. Basically you earn 2 swag bucks for every dollar you spend. Simply go to the Swagbucks site first and click thru to the desired retailer and order as you normally would.

Watching videos
Swag Bucks are awarded randomly via Swag Bucks TV. You can earn 3 points from watching videos via Swagbucks… and you can earn the 3 swagbucks amount several times in any given day. I typically have the videos play while I’m making dinner in the kitchen… it’s fun to watch in between tasks.

Completing Special Offers
To ensure an offer has been completed, follow the instructions provided for each individual offer. The offer needs be completed in the same session and all information required to complete the offer MUST be accurate. The majority of offers will credit your Swag Bucks account within a few minutes. However, the estimated wait time varies from offer to offer. Some may take a few hours or a couple of days before final confirmation is received.

Tell Your Friends

Invite all your friends to join Swagbucks… when they sign up you’ll be able to earn Swagbucks along with them… up to 1,000  points per referral.

Finding Swag Codes
Swag Codes can appear anywhere, and at any time, throughout the Swag Bucks network including the Swagbucks newsletter, any Swag Bucks powered Search&Win Site; the Official Swag Bucks blog, their Facebook Fan Page, Twitter page, Flickr page; and affiliated partner sites. Swag Codes can be redeemed by entering the codes into the Swag Codes box on your My Account page.

Video Games & Cell Phones

I recently sent in 3 of my son’s old video games and earned over 1,000 swagbucks for doing so… You can also trade-in your old cell phones for swagbucks as well and there is no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

So there you have it… Sign up for Swagbucks today and redeem your points for FREE gift cards!

    Thanks for the post. I have been using Swagbucks for a few months but not feeling like I am really getting out of it what I could be. I had no clue about Swag Codes, still not sure I understand it. I get frustrated with the survey’s because you have to take a survey just to see if you qualify for the survey which sometimes takes five minutes. Just yesterday I completed a survey and at the very end it said they had already met their quota for that survey. I wasted 20 min for nothing! But I have earned a few Amazon cards so I am really happy knowing i can shop for FREE!

      I have found that I have good luck with the surveys if I take them in the morning… It seems like by the afternoon they’ve usually made their quota. Anyway you look at it you’re getting something for free… and I heart FREE things. 🙂 Especially the Amazon and Starbucks gift cards.

    I think it should be noted that you receive 30 swagbucks just for signing up.

    I have been collecting swagbucks for a while now. Just wondering if I buy $5 amazon cards with my bucks can I use more than one per transaction on amazon? I noticed it was cheaper to buy them in small quantities. Also if you buy a ecard and don’t use it all can you still use it later on? In other words, do they work just like any other gift card?

    • All you do is log into Amazon and enter the gift certificate code they give you… the amounts will accrue in your account. It’s pretty awesome!! I entered my codes for a year and saved up for an LCD TV! It was pretty awesome to get it FREE!

  • Jane

    Is Amazon the only place that accepts swagbucks?

    • HersheyGirl

      NO, there are a LOT of rewards to choose from on Swagbucks! They also have certificates, pay pal gift cards, Barnes and Nobles gift cards, O’ Charlies gift cards, Starbucks gift cards, CVS gift cards, Home Depot gift cards, and MUCH more!!! Hope this helped! 🙂
