Swagbucks: Earn Lots of Swagbucks for Trial Offers + $5 Gift Card for 20 Swagbucks!

3:01 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

I posted about Swagbucks for the first time on January 26th. Since posting, I have fallen madly in love with Swagbucks! How are you all doing? Have you been racking in those Swagbucks? If not, I may have a way for you to do just that and it doesn’t have anything to do with referrals!

Head on over to Swagbucks and login or register for an account. After doing so, click on the upper tab labeled “Ways To Earn”, then in the drop down menu click on “Special Offers”. Finally scroll down and you’ll see all the Swagbucks limited time offers. Basically you can sign up for various trial offers and other offers to score lots of Swagbucks! This is a great way to build up your Swagbucks!

Some of the offers available:

Sign up for a FREE 2 week Netflix trial and earn 90 Swagbucks!
I love Netflix! It’s a great option if you like having new movies readily available to watch!
If you don’t like the trial, you can cancel within the first 2 weeks and you won’t owe anything.

When signing up for the FREE Netflix Trial, there are 2 options. Make sure to choose the second option under Wall 2. It states, “No purchase required to receive Swag Bucks within hours. Swag Bucks to be awarded upon registration for home DVD delivery. New member must order and receive initial movie order or Swag Bucks will not be awarded.” If you choose this option, you can cancel before your trial ends.

Try Blockbuster By Mail FREE for 2 weeks and earn 60 Swagbucks

If you don’t like the trial, you can cancel within the first 2 weeks and you won’t owe anything.

Become a fan of The Boost Mobile Shuffle on Facebook

Just for doing this, you’ll score 1 Swagbuck!
Now that’s an easy way to earn a Swagbuck!

These are just a few offers that caught my attention. There are lots of other offers available, so make sure to browse around and also make sure to read through the fine print on each offer.

On a different note, I wanted to mention that Swagbucks has $5 e-gift cards available for just 20 Swagbucks! Yes, ONLY 20– which is a lot better than the gift card for 45 Swagbucks. Please be aware that you can ONLY request one e-gift card per Swagbucks account and this is ONLY available to new members.

If you’re unsure what is, it’s an awesome money saving website! You can actually purchase groceries and household goods online while still being able to use manufacturer coupons! Sweet, huh? Plus, they have some great prices too–- sometimes even less than Walmart’s! On top of all of that, they offer FREE shipping on every item you purchase! And finally, for your first order, there is NO minimum amount you need to purchase!

I hope this helps you get motivated to score those Swagbucks!

(Thanks, TryingToSaveALot!)

  • MamaBear says:

  • mrslauriemclean says:

    Just be careful with the Netflix one – this is what it says, “Join Netflix as a new, first-time, paying subscriber to get your Swag Bucks! You will not be awarded Swag Bucks if you cancel before the first DVD ships to your home”

  • eden says:

    I’ve been doing SB for a while, however I have never done any of the special offers things. I just did the BB & Netflix ones however I was wondering how long it takes for them to add your SBs to your account after signing up for the special offers. Thanks!

    Please note, when signing up for the FREE Netflix Trials, there are 2 options. Make sure to choose the second option under Wall 2. It states, “No purchase required to receive Swag Bucks within hours. Swag Bucks to be awarded upon registration for home DVD delivery. New member must order and receive initial movie order or Swag Bucks will not be awarded.” If you choose this option, you can cancel before your trial ends.

    Also, the second option will score you 90 Swagbucks and the first option will only score you 75.

    I’ve been doing Swagbucks for about a year now. I don’t gain points from my referrals, they just haven’t gotten into it but, I have earned about $95 in the first year on my own searches and with Swag codes. Just an FYI, check out the Special Offers each Thursday. At the end of the offers you will get a swag code even if you don’t take part in the offers and it changes every Thursday. Good luck ladies!

    • Shell says:

      Thank you for explaining that because Collin had said it was daily and that never worked, so I gave up thinking it was once only.

  • MA says:

    Also found out that you can only get points for doing the special offers once a week. This may only pertain if you skip through all the offers to get your free SB at the end. But this is what the email said that they sent back to me after I did not get a SB credited.

    Please help with any additional info that you might have-I’m very new to this. :-)

  • Kathleen says:

    I love swagbucks and I have ordered things with Alice and you can get some good deals. Shipping is always free but you must order at least 6 items. Your very first order I believe they let you order less than 6 but on future orders you have to order 6 or more things.

  • the1amy says:

    I bought an $5 GC when it was only 14 SB (back in Dec.) and I’ve browsed the site many times and I can’t find anything there I just HAVE to order. What are the things you guys find there that are such a good deal. Do I just miss the good ones?

  • San says:

    Started swagging on Jan 26th and ordered my first $5 amazon GC yesterday. I don’t have a single referral..

  • kim says:

    For the Alice gift card – If you have to be a new member, do you become an Alice member first or order the swag gift card for Alice first?

  • Jessica C. says:

    I just snagged two Amazon gift cards bringing my total up to five cards so far since January.

  • Kelley says:

    Hey Colin, just thought you might like to know that I have earned two swagbucks today just for searching “hip2save”, thank you I love it when that little swagbuck pops up in the corner, lol….

  • mary says:

    I would only say is you can stack amazon cards and not cards thats what I like

  • Mary Beth says:

    While many of the special offers are by legitimate companies, please be careful of any that ask for a credit card or your cellphone number, or which ask you to download something. According to posters on the Swagbucks Facebook page, they have had trouble with unauthorized charges or texts, and spyware that messed up their computers. If you log into the SB Facebook wall, you’ll often see comments about it, or you can ask about an offer before doing it. There is a team of “Swaggernauts” who have volunteered to hang out on the wall specifically to help with questions.

  • E says:

    Hi I’m new to swagbucks…
    Can anyone confirm that the $5 amazon gc can stack?

    Because I don’t get why the amazon $5 gcs takes only 45pts x5 = 225pts for $25 but if you wanted to buy the $25 amazon gc it takes 315pts

  • Deena says:

    Amazon GCs do stack, I “buy” one each time I earn 45 swagbucks. Immediately aftering “buying” swagbucks sends me a verification email, you click on the link provided to confirm that you indeed made the purchase. On the 15th and 30th of each month, swagbucks then adds the giftcard redemption code to your swagbucks account and sends you an email, you then just copy the code and paste it into your account in amazon. I have had 3-4 in my amazon account each time before I actually used them. I have earned 8 giftcards since November, love it, and its free. As for the $25 amazon card costing 315, the only thing I can figure there is that when you click on the card to purchase it, it states: regular price, 100 swagbucks, special price 45 swagbucks, but I have been doing this for 4 months and it has always been that way so hopefully it will not change…..then again I ALWAYS cash in at 45 just in case it does change. Hope this helps. Deena

  • swathi says:

    hi you can also score more swagbucks where i found was goto special offers->wall2->task here you complete the iven task you can earn 1 or 2 swagbucks. try this if it works write in your blog because i read daily. your videos are so helpful.

  • Cindy says:

    If you’re looking for an easy way to earn 2 Swagbucks, go to one of the Walls and click on the videos tab. Axe has a 3-minute video that you watch right from the Swagbucks site (it’s a bit bawdy, so you might want to mute it if kids are around). It’ll keep replaying, but you need to stop it when it restarts, then watch it again. You’ll get 1 Swagbuck for each time you watch it, credited almost immediately, with a max of 2 viewings per day. I’ve watched it 23 times since I signed up! It does get a bit old, but I let it play when I’m fixing breakfast. :) You can also call the phone number in the ad on Monday mornings to get the free Axe detailer, which you can use with any brand of body wash.

    I checked out the tasks and decided not to do them. You usually get only 1 or 2 Swagbucks for 30 or 40 minutes of work (I did one that in actuality took much longer) looking up info and verifying it for another website. IMMO, the pay was too small for the effort.

    One more thing. :) I thought it would be fun to use one of the other Swagbucks search engines that you can find along the left side of the page in the blog section. I didn’t realize that when you earn Swagbucks from one of those, they can’t be combined with earnings from the main site. Fortunately, I had only 3 Swagbucks from the KISS site, but I had to use them on sweepstakes because I didn’t have enough to buy anything, The prizes on the main site are also a bit cheaper than on the other sites.

    • Jaime says:

      I’m new to swagbucks so I watched this axe video… then I stopped it when it started over and then watched it again…but I didn’t get any swagbucks…I must be doing something wrong and can’t figure it out :(

  • Suzanne says:

    Where on the wall do you see the axe video? I see the link for video but nothing happens.
