What to do with Partner Swagbucks?

What to do with Partner SwagbucksYou've been doing great with searching and finding codes on Swagbucks. Maybe even doing some surveys, special offers and tasks for SBs.

Now you are ready to grab your first free prize and you are so excited!!!

You click to snag your first prize - and then you get that dreaded message...

"You need another 23 Swag Bucks to snag this prize."

What!?? You have enough, it says so, right in your ledger! But no, it seems you picked up some partner Swagbucks along the way.

So what are Partner Swagbucks? They are SBs you collected from one of the partner sites, either by searching with that particular search engine, finding a Swag code for that partner site or thru your referrals.

Sites like SearchWithChester, SearchWithPantera or RoddenberrySearch. These partner SBs cannot be used in the Swagstore, only on their partner site store.

So if you can't use them, then they are worthless, right? You may as well contact Swagbucks and ask for them to be removed from your account. They will do that for you.

But not so fast! I currently have 1,243 partner bucks, thanks to my referrals. I am not just giving those up! Did you know that there ARE things you can do with partner bucks?

1. Donate them to charity - the last time there was a disaster in the US, Swagbucks set up a way to donate your SBs to help. You just went to the partner site, clicked on their Prizes link, and donated your partner SBs. What a nice thing to do!

2a. Use them to enter Swagstakes on the partner site - Go to the partner site, click on their Prizes link, and enter any Swagstakes they are offering.

2b. Use them to enter Swagstakes on the Swagbucks site - After you have earned enough to purchase your prize and all you have left are partner bucks - go the the Swagbucks Swagstore and enter some Swagstakes there.

Who knows, you just might win - and it didn't "cost" you anything to enter!

3. Save up for one of the prizes listed on the partner sites - you might find something there that interests you!

4. Save up for one of the gift cards - there are several gift cards that are shared across several partner stores - so even if you only have a few partner bucks on this search engine, a few on that search engine and a few more on another - those partner bucks can all be added together to buy one of the gift cards listed. Here's some that I found:

● Spaceland Recordings e-Gift Card -$3 - 30 SBs
● DiNG e-Gift Card - $5 - 70 SBs
● 50 UltimatePoints - 100 SBs
● Phone Halo - $5 e-Gift Card - 135 SBs
● ME! Bath e-Gift Card - $5 - 185 SBs
● FragranceNet.com - $5 e-Gift Card - 219 SBs
● CafePress e-Gift Card - $5 - 220 SBs
● VPGames.com - $4 e-Gift Card - 280 SBs
● $25 Travelocity Gift Card (Hotels Only) - 349 SBs
● Barnes & Noble e-Gift Card - $10 - 1350 SBs
● $10 Farmville Game Credit - 1999 SBs
● Target e-Gift Card - $20 - 2600 SBs
● Disney.com e-Gift Card - $25 - 3000 SBs
● VPGames.com - $25 e-Gift Card - 3250 SBs
● Macy's e-Gift Card - $25 - 3500 SBs
● Wii Points - 2,000 - 4850 SBs
● Microsoft Xbox Live Points - 1600 - 6000 SBs
and many more!

Still want to give up those pesky partner SBs? Then send an email to theswagguy@swagbucks.com and ask them to remove the partner SBs from your account.

Filling out form after form can be quite tedious. To make this process faster, you can use autofill software. Autofill software remembers information such as your name and address and automatically fills in the blanks for you on forms. Roboform is a great free autofill software download. The Google toolbar has an autofill function and
Firefox offers a free Autofill Form Add On for their browser.
