The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Yay…it’s FRIDAY! I just want to remind you that today is Mega Swagbucks Friday, which means you may be able to score more Swagbucks than normal just by searching the web, something we all do on a regular basis! If you’re a new member, you’ll start off with 30 Swagbucks just for signing up!  And whenever you add a profile picture, you’ll earn 15 Swagbucks and just for liking them on Facebook you’ll earn 5 more Swagbucks!

If you’re new to Swagbucks, here are a few ways to earn Swagbucks…

* Searching the web
If yours is a winning search, you will see a “Congratulations” screen featuring your Swag Bucks award immediately above your search results; you will never be directed away from your search. You can win multiple Swag Bucks every day; Swag Bucks can be won in denominations ranging from 1 – 1,000.

* Taking Surveys
Each survey that you chose to engage with may have a different Swag Bucks payout. Completing “deeper profiles” helps Swag Bucks alert you only to surveys for which you qualify and typically enables you to complete more targeted surveys which have significantly higher Swag Bucks payouts. Snag 1 Swag Buck per day just for heading over to the Survey page!

* Voting in Daily Polls
Snag 1 Swag Buck per day for voting in the daily poll.

* Watching videos
Swag Bucks are awarded randomly via Swag Bucks TV. Not every video you watch will earn you Swag Bucks, but just like Swag Bucks search, every video you watch is a chance to earn.

* 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 20 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.

*Playing Games
Swagbucks recently released FREE Swagbucks Games… find a game you like, play for free AND you’ll be eligible to earn bonus Swag Bucks just for playing!! There are two ways to be rewarded for playing games (1) Play games for free and you will randomly earn from 1-5 Swag Bucks (2) Buy into tournaments where you risk a small amount of Swag Bucks for the chance to earn a large amount. Just login or register and click on the “Earn” tab, then in the drop down menu choose “Games”.

* Finding Swag Codes
Swag Codes are strings of alphanumeric text that you can apply for instant Swag Bucks. 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, 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.

* Sharing Your Birthday
Be sure that you enter your birthday in the account details and you’ll snag 50 Swag Bucks on the big day!

You may be wondering, how can I use my Swagbucks or what can I purchase?

Swag Bucks can be used to purchase apparel, kitchen items, electronics, gift cards and lots more in the Swag Store! My personal favorite item is a $5 Amazon e-Card for only 450 Swag Bucks! Plus, Swagbucks recently added NEW rewards, including O’Charley’s eGift Cards, Brinker International eGift Cards (valid at Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, and more), Home Depot gift cards, as well as eGift cards to Fandango, Home Depot, Rixty, CVS, Overstock, Lands End, Cabelas, and more!

Happy Searching! :)

    a question as I am new to swag bucks…
    is seems the cost of points for a $5 amazon card is the better deal than the larger denominations that ordering multiple $5 cards makes more sense that 1 larger one…am I looking at it correctly?

    • fran says:

      Yes, you are looking at that correctly. The reason being is, Swagbucks gets a better deal on the $5 AGC than on the $25 or $50 ones. You would think it would be a better deal for the higher value AGCs. After the $5 AGC, the next best deal is the $50 AGC.

    • Amanda says:

      You are totally correct. Its so strange as usually its the other way around, but in this case the $5 are cheapest. Just a heads up…they will only let you get 5 of any one prize in a month, so I usually get 5 of the $5 and then save up for a $50 card in addition (its the next best value).

  • Ashley says:

    Thanks for introducing me to swagbucks! I love it!

  • Megan says:

    Does anyone know if you can still purchase Groupons through Swagbucks?

  • Andrea says:

    Swagbucks is well worth the time… I have gotten over $200 dollars worth of stuff on Amazon in just a year and half !!!

  • deb says:

    My mom wants to sign up also. Do they still give points for referrals?

  • Rachel says:

    Please help, I just signed up today, and I don’t get it. How do you get points for using the search engine? Is it all just random? Can you win swagbucks more than once per day by searching?

    • LMP124 says:


      Yes, you just do some random searches and periodically, you will win some swagbucks. I sometimes have a conversation with myself in the search engine when I cannot think of anything to search and I win. LOL Yes, you can win more than once a day. I usually pop on in the morning and again in the evening. I do not spend a lot of time on there but I manage to earn at least a $5.00 amazon g/c a month which I leave sitting in my amazon account for Christmas shopping.


  • Tara B. says:

    About Swagbucks TV, only watch the clips that are at least a minute long. You don’t get credited for watching the shorter clips, so skip those.

    • CJ says:

      Also you have to watch 10 SBTV videos to get 3 SB. The bar at the top of the screen will show your progress through the videos from 0% – 100%.
