Winning Ways on Swagbucks 1/9/11

Swagbucks Swidget"Access Swag Bucks from your website, blog and social network with the Swag Bucks widget. Log in before grabbing the embed code and earn referrals every time your friends discover Swagbucks.com using their widget. Be rewarded wherever the web takes you!"

A Swagger asked me how to put the Swidget on her Facebook page. There used to be a better way, but when Facebook made it's latest changes, that way stopped working as well.

Of course, you can always bookmark Frugal-Freebies.com and scroll down to the bottom of the page and use our Swidget. But if you want your own - here is what to do:

First - make sure to log into Swagbucks.com and then grab the Swidget here.

1. Click on the Get Widget button.
2. When the box opens, click on the Facebook button.
3. When it changes, click on the Add Widget button.
4. You may have to log into your Facebook account, if you aren't already.
5. Click on the Share button.
6. Go to your FB profile page and you will see a link to your widget on your profile:

Swidget 1.0
Earn Swag Bucks while searching the Web!

7. If you put your cursor on the Swidget 1.0 part, hold down your left-hand button and drag it up to your Favourites or Bookmarks - it will create a bookmark for you that you can check every day.

Alternatively, you can click on the link, and it will take you to the page with the Swidget and you can Bookmark or Favourite that page. Whichever is easier for you.

Don't have a Facebook page? You can simply Bookmark or Favourite Frugal-Freebies.com and scroll to the bottom of the page to use our Swidget - no charge.


If you are having a hard time earning Swagbucks, here are some of the ways that you could win SBs besides searching and finding swag codes! Note that not everyone will have the same offers on their walls.

This offer works for Canadians:

Not just a game, a way of life!
Mafia MoFo is not "just another mafia game", Release the MoFo in you and play with thousands now! No purchase required to receive Swag Bucks. Sign up and successfully sign into the game. Paid in about 15 minutes.

Where: Super Rewards Wall
Look For: Mafia MoFo
Pays: 5 SBs

I can't confirm the following offers because they are only for US, but US Swaggernauts tell me:

Connie posted - found a download for 10 SBs for getting REAL PLAYER...on Trial Pay wall under free tasks

Tundra posted - Special offers, SuperRewards, Play Wheel of Fortune Now! - 8 SBs
Not Just a Game, a Way of Life! - 5 SBs
- both credited in 15 minutes

Karen posted - the Science Diet video on Super Rewards credited right away. Easy 3 SB.

Jennifer posted - Gambit - free - 45 SBs for voting for your favorite Farmville game. Skip the special offers. Have to click "Yes" on at least one thing when the list comes up.. get to the final page.. got SBs within a minute.

Karen posted - The 26 SB "get insurance" on Super Rewards credited within 15 minutes. All I did was click the link, enter my zip code, and clicked to get an offer form. I did NOT fill out the form - just left the window open for a while. Hope this helps someone else out!


NOTE - To protect my computer, I will not download or install anything from the Special Offers page. I only look for the ones that I can do for free, and don't require an install. I have created a separate Facebook account just for doing stuff like this, so I don't have to share my personal info or all of my friends info.


Swagbucks coupons earn you 10 Sbs every time you use them - so you can save money and earn SBs too! Print them out, hand them out to your friends, leave them on store shelves, donate them to women's shelters and food banks - and still earn your SBs!

Here's a few I found today:

♦ Reach toothbrushes - Buy 2, save $2.00
♦ Reach floss - Save $1.00
♦ Listerine - SAVE $1.00
♦ Garnier - Save $1.00

NOTE - It will take up to 8 to 12 weeks after redemption for Swag Bucks to show in your account.

And if you have money to spend:

On the Special Offers - Super Rewards page for 124 SBs
The stuffing free toy your dog will love. Get one free!
Swag Bucks awarded when you purchase a Crazy Critter with a valid credit card. Offer reports on a 15 minute delay. Buy one for $10, get the second one free.

Getting Swagbucks for GroupOns is a happy double-bonus.
Here's what I found in my Daily Deals today - what's in yours?

$20 for a Three-Hour Weekend Paintball Package for Two People at Paintball Nation - That's 80% off! - 280 SBs
$45 for a Video Golf Swing Lesson and Consultation at The Golf Lab ($90 Value)
That's 50% off! - 280 SBs

Froobi Deals of the Day (US only)

From their FAQ: You will get a Swag Bucks Rebate for each item you purchase. Buy 10 of that day's item, receive 10x that day's Swag Bucks Rebate.

NOTE - make sure to connect your Froobi account to your Swagbucks account first - before placing an order, or you won't receive your credit in SBs.

Here is what I have gotten so far with my Swagbucks - I have been swagging since April/10 and gotten two iPod Touchs (for my husband and myself - $255 each), a Canon camcorder ($180), a dog seat harness ($40) and dog carrier ($52) for my dogs, an XBox 250g hard drive ($159) for my son, Koolatron electric cooler ($102) - it covered all the taxes and the shipping cost too.

I still have $45 in
Amazon.com gifts cards & $25 in Amazon.ca gift cards and I am waiting on $20 more in gift cards to come in.
I still have 2,936 SBs to spend!

Remember, Frugal-Freebies.com doesn't give out the freebies, I only post the freebies I find on the net. So to increase your chances of the freebies arriving in your mail, you could stick to the offers from the larger companies
(i.e.: Wal-Mart, P&G, Kroegers, Sam's Club, etc.). However, lots of readers post on the Frugal Freebies forum saying they can't believe the amount of free stuff they've received in the mail, even though not every freebie will turn up from the other sites posted.
