Getting More Swag Bucks

Search & Win

First, if you haven't already... read "What is Swagbucks?"!

Once you have a Swagbucks account, there are several ways to earn Swag Bucks:

#1 Searches-- either download the Swag Bucks toolbar or bookmark Swag Bucks to easily get to it. Every time you would normally search the internet... use Swag Bucks and earn!

#2 Find Swag Codes-- if you follow Swag Bucks on Facebook/Twitter, read the Swag Bucks blog, or get the newsletter you'll come across these fairly often. It will say something like: "Type [_code_] into a Search and Win site to get [_X_] Swag Bucks"! When you get a code go to your Swag Bucks home (account) page and type the code (it is case sensitive) into the box you see below and click the "Gimme" button.
[You are not allow to publicly post Swag Codes if you find one. You can direct people where to look, but don't post the actual code.]

#3 Special Offers-- basically subject yourself to some adds in exchange for a few Swag Bucks. Go to "Special Offers" on the Swag Bucks home page and scroll through the offers, you'll be eligible to earn Swag Bucks once a day. No Swag Code will appear, instead you'll just get a message with the amount of Swag Bucks you earned. As long as you go through all the offers, you'll be eligible to earn varying amounts of Swag Bucks once a day. (I have been getting 2 or 3 daily.)

#4 Shopping-- you get 2 Swag Bucks for every $1 you spend when you order things online. Personally, I think there are better ways to earn when ordering online (like Ebates) but if you don't want to bother with those definitely start your shopping here.

#5 Recycle Old Electronics-- if you have an old cellphone, MP3 player, video games, or video game system laying around you can send it in (via Flipswap) and earn Swag Bucks. This is totally free (they even give you a shipping label). How much you get depends on what you recycle. [You can also go directly to Flipswap and earn an Amazon gift card. We did this with my husband's older iPod before we ever heard about doing it through Swag Bucks. It worked but the process does take a bit of time for them to credit you.]

#6 Tell Your Friends-- when your friends join Swag Bucks you earn Swag Bucks too!

If you haven't already joined Swag Bucks... it's an easy way to "earn" gift cards and prizes. It's totally free! I got a $5 Amazon gift card just this week!!
