Search The Web & Earn Free Gift Cards

Today is Mega Swagbucks Day… Instead of winning the typical 10 -12 Swagbucks you might get lucky and win 100 or even 1,000 Swagbucks… just for doing a simple search.

Swagbucks has been one of the best things I’ve ever signed up for.  I don’t know about you… but I LOVE free gift cards! Not only can you redeem your Swagbucks for gift cards to stores like, REI and Cabela’s (plus many more) but you can also turn those swagbucks into Paypal CASH!

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.

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 ton of points when my husband ordered his new camera online as well. Basically you earn 2 swag points 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 that 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

You can also earn swagbucks by trading in old video games and cell phones.  There’s no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

So there you have it… Sign up for Swagbucks today and start saving for something special you have on your list!

    I earn a good chunk of swagbucks through coupons. You earn 10 sb’s for every coupon redeemed that was printed from that site.

    When a coupon I want is featured here on this site, I’ll click through the link in order to support FF, and then if I see another good coupon that I want I’ll go ahead and print it too because it is convenient. But when I’m looking for coupons on my own, instead of going to coupons dot com directly, I’ll go to the coupons page on swagbucks and print them from there.

    Look at the banner ads for coupons … sometimes there will be a good one there that is not listed on the regular coupon page.

    Paper and ink costs do add up, so I don’t print coupons that I know I won’t use. But sometimes I do print a coupon that I’ll end up not using, so when that happens, I like to leave them on a store shelf for someone else. It’s a win-win … someone can get the coupon savings and i’ll get the 10 swagbucks for it.

    I’m also so happy to hear of swagbuck success stories, but I have had such difficulty getting registered. I’ve tried for 3 weeks now, and every time, they tell me that the letters in the verification code don’t match. I’ve now emailed them to ask for help registering.

    Anyone else have this problem?
