If you haven’t tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up during November as part of their Three for Fall promotion.

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

I use it myself, and I earned 4171 SB ($41.71) during the month of October.  My biggest earning activity was ordering replacement ink for my printer, which resulted in 700 SB being added to my total.  That was my only online purchase for the month, by the way.

The next 5 biggest earners were:

  • a group of missing credits from Discover activities
  • September’s Daily Meter bonus
  • a survey
  • a bonus for completing the above mentioned survey
  • another survey

Per category, I earned:

  • 1,168 SB from nCrave (videos, slideshows, and articles)
  • 786 SB from Discover activities
  • 700 SB from shopping online (the printer ink I previously mentioned)
  • 529 SB from Answer (surveys)
  • 452 SB from Other (this includes September’s Daily Meter Bonus, as well as SB from the Spin & Win wheel from October’s SWAGO game)
  • 127 SB from Watch (online videos)
  • 109 SB earned as bonuses
  • 106 SB from Mobile Watch
  • 79 SB from searching the internet
  • 65 SB from referrals
  • 48 SB from Swag codes
  • 2 SB from Play (online games)

I also redeemed SB for two gift cards – a $3 Amazon gift card and a $25 Amazon gift card.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 12/1/17. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you want even more bonuses, you’ll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That’s in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.

That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real.  Swagbucks has been a blessing to us over the years, something which I have gotten better at the more I do it.

Not all activities are equal in ROI (return on investment) in regards to time.  Figuring out what works for you, at this time in your life, may take a bit of trial and error.  However, it can work.  You will not earn a full-time income from this, but it can give a nice bit of extra each month.

It is that time of the year again, though it sure does not feel like it weather wise.  The calendar is telling me that I need to finalize my gift giving list.  Not only do we have several holidays approaching, but also a lot of birthdays happening in the next several weeks.

For several gifts, I know what I am going to purchase.  The others, well, they need to be finalized in the next few weeks if I want to reach my goal of having all the shopping done by the end of the month.

Swagbucks is offering double cash back at dozens of different stores (like Macy’s and Target) during their 2017 Holiday Sale. Just go to this page to see all of the deals available and get the jump on your holiday shopping.

You can even save on travel costs, whether car rentals, hotel stays, or air travel!

In order to take advantage of the cash back, just create your Swagbucks account when prompted (it takes less than 30 seconds) and then you’re all set! Your cash back comes in the form of SB points, which you can redeem for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, or get PayPal cash!

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is celebrating Thanksgiving early with another big “Swago” promotion starting Monday, November 6th at 9am PT and running until Monday, November 13th! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online.

If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster.  So far this year I have been able to redeem for over $400 in gift cards by using Swagbucks!

Here are a few tips:
  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, November 13th 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. 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.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, November 16th to use all your spins.

In the month of October, I earned 347 SB ($3.47) from the Spin & Win Wheel.  These spins were the result of that month’s Swago promotion and were an unexpected addition to my total for that month.

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.

Click here right now and click “Join” to get started! If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of next month, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!

Over the course of my time using Swagbucks I have earned a total of 105,116 SB (equivalent to $1051.16).  While this may not be a huge amount compared to what others are able to earn, it is nothing to sneeze at either.  Swagbucks will not replace a full-time job, but it can be a great help if you are looking to bring in a bit of extra money each month.

I was able to earn this amount while:

  • raising two very needy toddlers and a few teenage and preschool foster kids
  • my husband working full time and going to night classes for a few years
  • and it was only a part of other activities I was doing to earn a bit of extra spending money

The amount represents an activity I have been able to incorporate into my life, not something for which I have had to adjust my life to do.

Looking Back

As I looked back through the past 8 years, I could see when the times I had specific goals, times where I went for months not earning anything, and other times where I took the time to find new ways to earn.

Some years, and those were tough years, I earned as little as $15. Over the entire year. Did I mention that was a tough year?

Then there were years like 2016 where I earned $385. It may not be enough to buy me a car, but I did not have to leave the house, pay for gas to get somewhere, or even get the kids to brush their teeth. (Who knew a 2 minute task could cause such agony!)

Looking back over my totals, ways I have earned points, called SB, and my gift card redemption patterns, I am wondering what was going on during those times.

In 2015 I redeemed my SB for gift cards during two month out of the whole year, January and August.  I suspect the August gift cards were used for home school curriculum while the January gift cards were used to purchase gardening supplies.

My first gift card redemption was a $5 Amazon card earned in July of 2009.

We had moved to a new town the year before and I had not found a job outside the home yet.  I was looking for a way to earn a little bit of money each month to help out.  It was not a lot, but at that time it was better than nothing and the months following I was able to earn a $5 Amazon card each month. In the 6 months I redeemed for $40 in Amazon gift cards. Not too bad for doing something no one else I knew was doing or had ever heard of.  There was a lot of trial and error, as well as slow learning, between home improvement projects and lining up contractors.

The following year my activity levels were not quite as steady.  It may have had to do with deaths in the family, becoming foster parents, or other factors.  I earned $75 that year.  Some months I was able to earn 2 – $5 gift cards (again to Amazon), though I could not seem to break the $10 mark each month.

The first few years I used the Amazon gift cards toward whatever we happened to be ordering online, focusing on Christmas gifts and grocery items.  No set monetary goals, but it was a nice surprise to “save” $5 here and there when we did order online.

Items purchased with gift cards earned through Swagbucks.

At that time, Swagbucks was also structured differently:

  • There were no team challenges or other ways to connect with other Swaggernauts.  The way to find the best ways to earn at that time was to search for blog posts or articles.
  • SWAGO did not exist.
  • Activities were worth more in points, called SB, on average. However, there were fewer choices of ways to earn.
  • There were no ways to earn by watching videos via apps, now one of my most completed activities.  Even if there were video apps, I did not have a phone which I could use to watch them.
  • The $5 Amazon gift card was the best deal points-to-dollars wise.  There was no monthly discount on your first $25 gift card (from almost any retailer) like there is now.

In 2012 I set a goal of using Swagbucks to help buy cloth training pants.  It was my first time setting an actual goal.  Combining these gift cards and online deals I was able to pay for our first set.   Within a a year we saw the need for different nighttime items, again turning to Swagbucks to help cover the cost completely.

In 2014 we began homeschooling.  By the Spring of 2015 I set the goal of paying for our home school materials with SB.  Using PayPal and Amazon gift cards I was able to make a significant dent in the cost of materials.

Recently I have used gift cards to cover, fully or a portion thereof, the online purchase of:

Join Swagbucks!Today I am using my balance, which I have slowly been increasing, to purchase something to hopefully make my life a bit easier and our new home look nicer.  This is something I have been researching and waiting to purchase.  Due to the normal cost, it was not high on my list of items to get right now.  I have been saving up the SB left over from my gift card redemption each month in anticipation of purchasing this sometime in the fall.

Today I found out that this was listed as a Daily Deal on Amazon, thereby saving me 70% off and totaling just under what I have saved in SB.  While it was not one of the exact brands I had been researching, I quickly realized it met all of my requirements, needs, and the price was perfect.  This is what I mean by “combining gift cards and online deals” above.

With the remaining SB left I am going to be saving them up again to go toward the purchase of a rain barrel for the new house.  Knowing rain water is better for plants and helps lower our water bill each month, I have been wanting to invest in one for several years.  Now seems like the perfect time to do so.  Honestly, if I had not seen the Daily Deal above, I would have been purchasing a rain barrel this week.  In the long run, though, taking advantage of a reduction in price on one item will save me 100’s of dollars over the course of the next few months.  And who knows, I might find a sale on rain barrels to match the SB I have earned.

Until then, I have a goal to reach, which I have seen over and over really helps me focus on doing activities on Swagbucks which can result in more SB earned faster.

Note: this post was written in May 2017, but  was not published at that time.  When it was written, the earnings numbers were accurate, though they have increase by this point in the year.  I also had to adjust my goal of purchasing a rain barrel as life gave us some other goals which needed to be covered.

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.

Click here to get started!
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.

It is finally my favorite season of the year.  Now, if it would only feel and look like my favorite season of the year.  Currently it seems like an odd mix of rainy Spring and humid Summer.  Even the kids did not believe me when I told them it was officially Autumn.

In hopes of encouraging a glorious sensory experience this season, I am trying to will the trees around me to look like those in the image below.  So far I am not having much luck in the way of colorful results.

What I have had luck with is finding ways to add points to my Swagbucks account each day.  It may not seem like much at the end of each day, but a little progress each day really begins to add up.

Last month I was able to use it to buy a large bag of cashew nuts online and save over $20 on our grocery bill.  We use these particular nuts each week on our salads.  Even better was the fact that the price per ounce was better than I could have gotten them for in the store.  This made it feel like a double win for me.

I also did something not so smart last week and will be using some of the remaining balance toward fixing my mistake.

We recently got rid of our 18 year old, almost 300,000 mile car.  The issues with it were things I could handle, until I realized there were electrical problems (again), which resulted in the brake and reverse lights along the trunk to no longer work.  That was the last straw.  Off to be recycled it went.

I thought I did really well getting all my stuff out of the car before saying “Goodbye” to it.  And I did.  Except I forgot our garage door opener remote on the visor.  Oops.

While not the smartest thing, it is not the worst mistake ever.  Especially when I can help ‘fix’ the problem with a gift card from Swagbucks.

Swagbucks is celebrating this wonderful season with another big “Swago” promotion starting Monday, October 9th at 9am PDT!

Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips:

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, October 16th 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. 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.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, October 16th to use all your spins.

I earned an extra 33 SB

Today I earned an extra 33 SB, several entries to a sweepstake, and double SB on future surveys from the spins on the wheel.  The spins were earned through activities I would normally do on SB, none of which involved a purchase.

While I might do that later, for a gift card to a store I plan to shop at, it is not necessarily something you need to do in order to earn points for a gift card. I showed how I was able to earn 300 SB over two days without purchasing or downloading anything.

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.

Click here right now and click “Join” to get started! If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of next month, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!

If you haven’t tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up during October as part of their Three for Fall promotion. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

In all, during the month of September, I earned 2,516 SB.  That is enough to redeem for a $25 gift card or money through PayPal, and still have some SB left over.

Why am I so excited about Swagbucks?  Because I have used this site for years and earned many a gift card through them.  Some years it was used to help purchase gifts, while other years it was used for ordering grocery items online.

This year I have used Swagbucks to help offset home school materials and was looking to purchase a rain barrel for our home.  However, circumstances changed suddenly, more on that later, and it was used to purchase grocery items from Amazon.com instead.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here’s how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 11/1/17. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you want even more bonuses, you’ll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That’s in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.

If you are not sure how to earn 300 SB, take a look at this post where I earned 300 SB in two days’ time, without having purchased anything.

The digital rewards Swagbucks just hit a major milestone – they have given their members over $200 million in cash and free gift cards since 2008! I use Swagbucks all the time to get free gift cards doing stuff I already do online, like shopping, answering surveys, watching videos, discovering great deals, and searching the web. To demonstrate how big a number 200 million really is, here are some fun facts:

$200,000,000 is a huge number, and to celebrate they’ve been holding a “Swago” promotion for the past week! (It ends at 12pm PT/3pm ET today.)

If you’ve been playing, you’ve also been getting spins on their Spin & Win wheel. Starting at 9am PT/12pm ET today, you can start cashing in on those spins! The wheel will close at 9AM PT/12PM ET on Thursday, September 21st.

Every spin on the wheel results in either SB earned, entries into an Exclusive Limited Time Swagstakes or an exclusive Swag Up. Click here right now to start spinning!

**The SB options on the wheel will credit immediately. Please note, the SB you earn from the wheel will not count towards your Daily Goal meter. The Swag Ups will be live for a couple of weeks and will expire 15 days from the time they are applied to your account so there will be different expiration dates.

  • Shop Swag Up Bonus: Make a qualifying purchase before October 1st and earn a 500 SB Bonus when your Shop & Earn SB Credits! Manual crediting of SB will not count.
  • SB Local Swag Up: Earn SB from SB Local before October 1st and earn an additional 200 SB Bonus! Manual crediting of SB will not count. Must earn atleast 25 SB from your SB Local purcchase. to qualify for the additional 200 SB bonus.

**All Swag Up and Double Search and Survey SB will credit back as Bonus SB which means they will not go towards your Daily Goal Meter

A few weeks ago I shared a post which said, “All throughout September you can earn big bonuses at Swagbucks, a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already…”

I know it is easy to gloss over such posts as these, assuming it is not legitimate, or requires you to purchase something, or give up  your rights to your first born child.  I used to think the same thing.  And you are right about some sites.  I know. I have tried them.

After having been a member of Swagbucks for years, I know it is a legitimate site. I also know that, while you will not get rich from this site, it is a good way to earn a bit of extra money each month without having to leave home.

Over the course of me being a member of their site I have earned approximately $1,223.19.  Some months I have earned $50, while other times I do not do anything for months on end.  That is one thing I love about Swagbucks, they have something for me to do no matter how much, or little, time I have to spend.

Going back to the post I initially mentioned, Swagbucks is currently offering a 300 SB bonus, equivalent to $3, for new members who earn 300 SB by the end of the month.  If you are new to the site, this might seem like a daunting task.

With that in mind, I wanted to show you how I was able to earn 300 SB in two days time.  If I had been able to take a bit longer the first day, I could have completed it all then.  However, life still must go on and people in my household do like to be feed during the day.

Here’s how I was able to earn 300+ SB over a two day period without downloading something on my computer, purchasing anything, or even doing my normal online shopping:

DAY 1
  1. I checked my Swagbucks Inbox for deals – completed a travel search and earned 5 SB, checked out hotels in a specific city and earned 1 SB
  2. Clicked on the banner at the top.  Watched the nCrave videos for 1 SB.
  3. Went to my To-Do List (found on the left side of the home page).  Daily Discovery and Crave were already completed.  Daily Poll – 1 SB, Daily Watch – 2 SB, Deal of the Day – 1 SB, unsuccessfully attempted 2 surveys – 2 SB, completed survey – 30 SB
  4. Bonus for completeing 6 out of 8 items on To-Do List – 1 SB
  5. Bonus for completing To-Do List – 1 SB
  6. August Spin-n-Win double survey earning – 30 SB
  7. Completed a Discover Activity (watched an ad for 30 seconds) – 2 SB
  8. SuperRewards (Discover) activity – 3 SB
  9. Watched an additional 3 video series – 3 SB
  10. Disqualified from 3 surveys – 3 SB
  11. Compeleted survey – 54 SB
  12. Completed 1 AdGate Media (Discover) activity – 2 SB
  13. Completed 6 Peanut Lab (Discover) activities – 7 SB
  14. Watched 8 nCrave video series for 8 SB
  15. Disqualified from 5 Peanut Lab (Discover) surveys – 5 SB
  16. Search – 6 SB
  17. August Spin-n-Win double search earning – 6 SB
  18. Play – 10 SB
  19. nCrave slideshow – 3 SB
  20. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  21. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  22. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  23. nCrave video slideshow – 7 SB
  24. nCrave activity – 2 SB
  25. nCrave activity – 5 SB

End of Day 1.  Earned 202 SB.

Some of these activities were new to me.  Even after all these years, I am finding new ways of earning SB, as Swagbucks has changed over time.  Some of the new or different activities I like and do often.  Others, well, let’s just say that there were a few new ones this time which I will not be doing again.

Day 2
  1. nCrave video slideshow – 7 SB
  2. nCrave video slideshow – 4 SB
  3. Disqualified from survey – 1 SB
  4. Completed survey – 58 SB
  5. Deal of the Day – 1 SB
  6. Daily Poll – 1 SB
  7. Bonus for completing 6 out of 8 items on my To-Do List – 1 SB
  8. Disqualified from 5 surveys – 5 SB
  9. 6 AdGate Media (Discover) slideshows – 6 SB
  10. Watch video slideshow – 1 SB
  11. Bonus for completing 8 out of 8 items on my To-Do List – 1 SB
  12. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 20 SB
  13. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 10 SB
  14. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 10 SB
  15. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 9 SB

End of Day 2.  Earned 135 SB

I decided to stick with activities I knew well, things which would not take me as long to complete.  The Peanut Lab activities were also ones I had to submit a ticket for due to them not crediting after completion.

If I had not had the benefit of double earnings from the previous month’s Swago promotion, I could have completed a few more survey, or looked for other Discover activities to complete.

Total at the end of two days = 337 SB

Part of the earnings during Day 1 were from bonuses earned while participating in August’s Swago promotion.  By earning spins on the Spin Wheel I received bonuses such as “Double Survey Earnings” or “Double Search Earnings”.  These particular bonuses may not count toward your 300 SB earnings needed to receive the 300 SB bonus for being a new member, but they still count toward your total earned toward a gift card.

With this in mind, during the September Swago promotion, which is currently taking place, there are several activities I have completed, not because they will result in a higher earning pattern but because they will earn me opportunities to spin the wheel. Due to the difference in this month’s Swago promotion, the celebration of Swagbucks giving away 2,000,000 SB, the Spin & Win Wheel will not be available to use until 9AM PT/12PM ET on Tuesday, September 19th and will end at 9AM PT/12PM ET on Thursday, September 21st.
