For those of you with a Swagbuck account, there is a promotion out right now for 1000 free swagbucks. The deal is if you sign up for a 7 day free trial of freecreditscore.com, you will be rewarded with 1000 swagbucks, which equals $10 in Amazon credit and a little left over. I did this today and my swagbucks showed up in about 5 minutes, and I still get a week to use the site for free! (Special offers listed at the bottom of their home page).
If you are new to Swagbucks – Read on for details on why you want to start swaggin! To start off you will be given 30 free swagbucks for signing up.
Swagbucks is a search engine, just like Google or Yahoo, but you are given swagbucks (or points) every few searches which you can trade in for merchandise or gift cards. My personal favorite is the Amazon $5 gift card. My husband and I have earned 18 gift cards in about 5 months, so just about $100 which we have saved up for our Christmas shopping, which will be totally free! You could actually earn a lot more, but we are minimal computer users. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Load the swagbuck toolbar on your browser – every time you need to do a search you have it ready.
Fridays are MEGA swagbuck days. They tend to reward swagbucks a bit more often (1 out of 5-7 searches) and for larger amounts (more than 10 at a time). If you have a project to do online requiring a lot of searching, save it for Friday.
Set swagbucks as your home page, or check in on their homepage every few days. They come up with deals that earn you major rewards – like the one listed above about freecreditreport.com. Another one running right now is 1000 swagbucks for doing a 1 month free trial on Netflix. (That’s enough for $20 in amazon gift cards if you are new!)
Watch for codes to be posted every once and a while here worth free points to enter in your “gimme box”.
REFER YOUR FRIENDS! – Every time you win swagbucks you can share it on your facebook, twitter or other social networking sites with your friends. When they use your link, the first 1000 swagbucks they win will also be awarded to you.
