The holidays are close and the online rewards site Swagbucks has a smart and fun way for you to earn and save while you spend. This is one of my most used ways to save money on Christmas shopping, as well as earn gift cards used to purchase gifts.

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago!

What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, October 23rd at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value – up to 300 SB – enough for your first $3 gift card.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Friday, October 27th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.Also, if you sign up through me this month, you’ll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the “Swag Ups” area of “My Account”

So far this month I have earned almost $30 worth of SB, mainly through Discover activities, but also surveys and watching videos.  None of the SB earned were through online shopping.  I suspect that will change in the upcoming month as I begin to take advantage of online deals to finish shopping for Christmas gifts, especially for those whom we will not be near during the Christmas season.

Have you started thinking about your Christmas shopping yet?  Are you already finished with it?  My progress has varied from year to year … with last year’s Christmas being finished in February…1.5 months after the lovely gift giving holiday.  This year, I am doing much better.
