Time2Earn Tuesday: Let’s Talk Swagbucks!

If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you’ve probably heard of SWAGBUCKS! (Like, every single Friday!)  You may not have fully understood what it’s all about or not yet taken a second to sign up, so I wanted to take a minute to tell you about it so you don’t miss another day of earning your “Swagbucks”.
Swagbucks is an online portal which allows allows you to earn virtual dollars (called “Swagbucks”) while searching the internet.  You literally just need to search as you normally would, and you will randomly be awarded Swagbucks in various denominations.
Once you collect a few Swagbucks, they can redeemed for a huge assortment of gifts, gift cards or even Pay Pal cash!   I’m saving my Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards to use for Christmas shopping.    (But I have a friend that just got a new laptop –  just from cashing in her Swagbucks)

CLICK HERE to start earning your Swagbucks.

Here are a few tips that will help you maximize your Swagbucks earnings:
1.) Download the Swagbucks toolbar.  You’ll automatically receive a FREE Swagbuck each day just for having it downloaded on your computer.  Once it’s there, you can easily use it for your searches.  The more you search, the more chances you’ll have to be rewarded with Swagbucks.
2.) Use the Swagbucks search window to navigate around the internet as you normally would.  I have lots of sights “bookmarked”, but I’ve found that when I began accessing them through the Swagbucks search bar, I quickly increased my Swagbucks balance.
3.) Watch for FREE Swag Codes.  Swagbucks often releases codes that can be entered on their website for FREE bucks.  I’ll try to post their location when I’m aware of them, but you’ll also find them via the message section of the tool bar.
4.) Refer friends.  Swagbucks will reward you for referring others, so sign up and then let your friends know about the program, and you’ll earn additional bucks.
5.) This is not scientific (or even confirmed by Swagbucks) but I’ve found that if I type in a random word each day — something that I typically wouldn’t be searching for — I’ll often get a few bucks.  So type in “lemons” or something odd and see what happens.
Check out Swagbucks, and let us know what you’re saving them for!

    Erin (This is Jamie!) – I have to be honest here, I never get those Toolbar Codes typed in on time! I can usually figure them out – whatever the clue is, but I’m always 3 hours late noticing them or something.
    However, if I can win 20 points for searching the word “pickles” or “TotallyTarget”, I don’t get too heartbroken over a 6 point code in the toolbar.

    Erin –

    Have you tried clicking the message to open it? (For ex: if it says, “Happy Tuesday!”…click on the words, Happy Tuesday.) Once you click on the message, it will redirect your page to a longer message. In the longer message will be your code!

    Sounds simple and easy……but it took me a while to figure it out as well…..I didn’t realize that it re-directed you to a longer message.

    Hope that helps! Good luck!

    I am a member of Swagbucks and love it….however, I have trouble figuring out what those messages in the toolbar are and how to cash them in for SBs. Any ideas? (And, I do attempt the codes within the time parameters….)
