What Is Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a great site that allows you to earn points several different ways and redeem those points for prizes, including gift-cards. This blog is designed to help you to get the most out of your account. Not a member? Sing up here earn 30 points just for signing up!

Now that you are a member, Let me guide you through the site and start earning immediately

Online Searches

Take advantage of the search box. Points are awarded randomly and will accumulate quickly. On Friday's the the chances of larger rewards are increased. You can download the tool bar but this is not a requirement. Use the swagbucks search engine to do your online searches and increase your earnings.

The search engine alone can earn you enough points monthly to cash out for a variety of gift-cards each month, including $5 Amazon gift-cards! So don't overlook this feature. The more often you use the search engine, the greater odds of winning!

Swagbucks also allows you to earn by accepting offers, many which are completely free! Run your curser over the earn button and click "special offers".

Click the first tab "Ad Rewards" Watch each short video and enter the two numbers that you see scroll during the video. There are five videos daily.

Continue through the rest of the tabs, completing any offers that you are interested in. Read the instructions carefully!

The special offers section is a great way to increase your earnings on this site! There are many "FREE" no obligation offers for you to take advantage of! ALways read the instructions carefully before attempting the offer. In some cases its just a first page submit and other cases you will need to follow the path to the final page!

Trusted Surveys

Trusted Surveys are quite valuable if you qualify! You will not qualify for each and every survey, however you will qualify for some. When these surveys are worth 50-250 points each, this is a quick and easy way to earn points each month. I usually earn 5 or more gift-cards each month in this area alone!

Other Earning Opportunities

On this blog you will see a widget box! Check to see if swagcodes are available. If a code is available you will receive a clue to it's whereabouts. This is a great way to get a few extra points!

Swagbucks TV

Watch videos in this section and earn 3 swagbucks for every 10 videos.

Main Page slider box

Near the bottom of the main page you will see a slider box with offers, many which are free. If you are limited on time, this box is easy access to a few of the offers throughout the site!

Main Page Opportunities

The main page will occasionally have quick points opportunites such as video's or click through ads. So look over the main page carefully. These are usually around for only a short time!

Hourly Random Drawing
Keep an eye on the hourly drawing. You must claim the prize which is 1000 swagbucks!


There are many ways to get referrals and increase your earnings. Your referral link can be found near the top of the page, under the "promote" tab. Use this to refer your friend. Attach to facebook. Post on forums, emails and more. You will earn up to 1000 points for the active referrals. Here is how it works.
When your referral does a search and wins points, you get a matching reward. This will continue until you have earned 1000 points from that referral. Each household member (13 years or older) canregister. So have your family members register through your referral link.
The more referrals you get, the more you make.

Invite and earn
Under the tab "earn" click on invite and earn. Invite "one" facebook friend daily and earn one swagbuck and a potential referral! Do this once daily!

redeem for prizes

Swagbucks has a swag store with lots of different prizes. I personally like the $5 Amazon gift cards. earn 450 points (Have seen this done in a single hour) and snag an Amazon $5 gift-card. Your gift-card will be delivered in 7 days! You will receive an email notice! Simply get the code, and apply it to your Amazon account. Once applied, it will never expire so you can let them build!

Happy earning and Good Luck. For more earning opportunities click here
