Have you heard of Swagbucks? It's a FREE service where you earn points for searching the internet, something we all do on a regular basis (or maybe that's just me)! If you’re a new member, you’ll start off with 30 Swagbucks just for signing up! There are LOTS of 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 - Get 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.
- Mega Swagbucks Friday - every Friday you'll earn extra bonus Swagbucks when you search the net. Just one more reason to TGIF! :)
- Playing Games - yeah, that's right, play Swagbucks computer games 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 (gambling, anyone?). Just login or register and click on the “Earn” tab, then in the drop down menu choose “Games”. (Maybe you can enlist your kiddos to help ya with this one?!)

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.
