Another Way to earn them Swagbucks- Trusted Surveys

It's new, it's still having a few kinks worked out, but the most recent addition to getting Swagbucks would be "Trusted Survey's" You are provided with surveys to take and if you qualify, you can earn BIG Bucks from taking surveys. So check them out, so to the Swagbucks home page and click on "Trusted Surveys" in the links on the left, sign up and check them out a few times a day!

You can get some guaranteed Swagbucks just by completing all the profiles on the Surveys page. So make sure you do those!

You can get even more Swagbucks through Referrals. Referrals are people who sign up under your account when you refer them to Swagbucks. Clicking on and signing up under any of the sign up pages or links on this page will make you my referral and once you are signed up, you will get your own referral link and be able to get your friends and family and others to sign up too! Remember, only one account per household/mailing address, so don't have your husband or your roommate sign up, well, unless you don't live with your husband! Accounts will be deactivated if this rule is broken.

You can get up to 1,000 matching Swagbucks for each referral you have. However, you can ONLY get matching Swagbucks for the bucks your referrals get for searching. You do not get matching bucks for any of the other ways I've outlined here.

Once you have someone signed up under you, I welcome you to send them here to get lots of great tips on earning Swagbucks.

If you are loving the idea of Swagbucks and don't mind getting free stuff for things you do anyway when you are online, become my referral by clicking HERE!

Shop and Earn to get Swagbucks

Do you shop online a lot, or even a little? Well before placing that order, check and see if maybe Swagbucks has a shop and earn partner so you can get some Swagbucks just for buying stuff you were going to buy anyway. It takes a few days for shop and earn purchases to show up as pending in your account and it takes about 32 days for it to post, but hey it's free Swagbucks for doing something you were going to do anyway, win/win!

You can find the Shop and Earn Portal HERE. As you can see there are a TON of stores that participate, some you might even use regularly now, like Walmart, Walmart Music, Best Buy, Kohls, Target, Itunes and a whole lot more!

If you want to earn Swagbucks just by shopping online, you can sign up right HERE!

Another way to get Swagbucks-Special Offers and Tasks

Swagbucks can also be earned by completing Special Offers. There are lots of choices for Special Offers. Often there are short videos you can watch on the Home Pages special offers. There is a moving bar near the bottom of the page-that is where you will find the videos. They are normally worth 2-3 Swagbucks each. You may have to wade through the other offers to find them, but they are short, easy and rewarding so it's worth it.

Other special offers are on the Special Offer walls. To get there simply click on "Special Offers" on the main Swagbucks pages link under "ways to earn". You will find four walls of Special Offers. I personally prefer Wall 2/Offerpal. go through the offers if you like and if you see something you would like to complete, do it! I do not suggest doing any downloads. Some game and coupon bar downloads have been known to have malware or adware so it's just a good idea to avoid them. There are lots of other offers such as surveys, or free trial offers that you can do.

On walls 1 and 3 (Gambit and Trialpay) you can find other special offers, but you can also find Tasks on these walls. Tasks are a bit time consuming and some of them are hard, but if you find yourself good at some of them, you can do them while watching TV and earn some good Swagbucks this way. Make sure you read the directions thoroughly before beginning a task. For Wall 1, simply click on Tasks, For Wall 3, click on "free" then click on "Crowdflower" Wall 1 tasks are 10 pages long and Wall 3 tasks are 20 pages long.

What can I get with my Swagbucks?

Oh, you need to know what you can get for your Swagbucks and is this really legitimate for real here? The answer to your second question is a resounding YES! It is for real and it is legitimate. There are lots of things you can purchase with your Swagbucks, but my personal favorite is Amazon Gift Cards. In my first THREE months of using Swagbucks I accumulated enough Swagbucks to purchase $125 worth of FREE Amazon cards. Seriously.

There are other gift cards available too, such as Target and Red Envelope. Some are stackable (like the Amazon cards) and some are not. Make sure to read the fine print before purchasing.

You can buy items straight through Swagbucks too. They have tons of stuff including music downloads, video games, video game systems, Swagbucks merchandise, wallpapers, reusable stainless steel water bottles from Ecousable, perfume, clothing, games....I mean, there is way too much to even get close to sharing here. And all thinks ARE within reach with just a little time dedicated to Swagbucks.

There are also Swagstakes where you can use your Swagbucks to enter drawings for prizes. You can win Gift Cards, Swagbucks, Electronics such as a Kindle or a PS3, DVD's, Laptops, Jewelry. Oh my the list here goes on and one too. Take a look at prizes by clicking the "The Swag Store" and "Swagstakes" links after getting to the main Swagbucks page using your search engine.

Codes! Codes! Where's the Code?

Another way to get free Swagbucks. Codes. Almost every day, the good people of Swagbucks will throw a code out there to the Swagger nation and sometimes there will be two codes. I've even seen three codes in one day a time or two. There are several places to find this code. The best place to start is on what is called a Swidget. You can find my Swidget conveniently located on the bottom of this page. You can use my Swidget, or you can add your own to your own blogsite, or your facebook page or almost any social networking page. The Swidget does a few things, including saying how many Swagbucks you have currently and letting you know if there is an active code. You can also search using it and read the latest Swagbucks blog entries.

Swagbucks codes have been found in many different places. You could find them in any of these places:

1. Right on the Swidget
2. in the Toolbar in your messages from TSG (TSG stands for The Swag Guy)
3. On the Swagbucks Twitter page
4. On the Swagbucks Facebook fan page
5. On the main page in the screenshow
6. In the blog
7. On partner sites

So, once you have joined, you are going to want to make sure you download that toolbar and Widget (if you have someplace to put it, or just bookmark here and use mine) and join the Swagbucks facebook fan page. You do not have to follow Swagbucks on twitter to get any codes they may post there, but it does help, especially if you are a twitter user, because then it will show up on your twitter feed. Read the blog, maybe even do an RSS feed for it.

How the code is presented to you can be in one of three ways

The first is a DYNAMIC code. This is a code that is posted somewhere. They aren't hard to find, but the code will change every 20-30 seconds so you must be quick about entering this code. Quickly highlight the code and hit ctrl C to copy it, go to the Swagbucks main page and click in the GIMME box located under your stats on the top right. Hit ctrl V to paste the code in the box. Click Gimme and if you were quick enough you will get the bucks, if not, you may need to go back, refresh the page the code was on and try again. It sometimes helps to have two tabs or windows open if the code is a dynamic one so you don't have to keep going to the Swagbucks home page from wherever you are. Just have it open in a separate tab or window.

The second kind of code is a static code. This is one that is freely given by TSG and it does not change. Simply find it and copy/paste it in the GIMME box.

The third kind is a code search. TSG will ask you to find clues to the code. Pay special attention to the directions for these codes. They will give you several pieces of important information such as what order to put the answer in and even capitalization requirements. These are harder, but they are a lot of fun too! And you can use the search engine to find the answer, so you could really win twice, once for searching and once for the code!

All codes expire. Most expire within an hour or two of posting. Code searches are often valid for longer. Pay special attention to the time that the code expires to made sure you enter it in time.

And remember, it is against the TOS to ever share a code. You could be deactivated for it.

Searching Using Swagbucks!

The main way to earn Swagbucks is by using the Swagbucks search engine. You can download that on the Swagbucks main home page after you sign up by clicking right here. You can find the toolbar download here

Using the toolbar will make it much easier to search using Swagbucks search engine from any website on the internet. The toolbar only works with Firefox and IE right now. Chrome doesn't support toolbars, so, you won't be able to use it there, but you can still search from the main page of Swagbucks and there is also a search box in each of your search results.

Search for things you would normally search for and click on the links in the search results that best match what you are looking for. Don't oversearch trying to get Swagbucks. If you do oversearch you may receive the rules page. This will cause you to be unable to use the Swagbucks search engine for a period of time. So, just use the Swagbucks search engine as you would any other search engine and enjoy your Swagbucks when you do get them. You will receive them randomly. Some days you may not receive any, but most people get 1-3 per day and sometimes you could even get 4-5 rewards per day. Swagbucks rewards for search vary from 5 Swagbucks and up, I've seen people get 50 or 100 Swagbucks with one search. I personally have received one for 49 and two for 36! So have fun searching, but remember it's Search AND Win, not Search TO win.

There are also partner sites that you can search on. If you are a HUGE Star Trek fan, love the band Poison, Love to ride the Crazy Train with Ozzy, think Chris Brown is to die can earn special swagbucks by searching from their partner search and earn sites. There are many more then I've listed here. Just remember, any Swagbucks earned on the Partner sites can only be used to purchase merchandise from that site. They offer different items from the main site, often limited edition or rare fan merchandise for the partner you are searching on. All partner sites can be found to the left of the Swagbucks blog, right here
