Winning Ways on Swagbucks 2/13/11

Winning Ways on SwagbucksYou really don't have to spend a cent to earn Swagbucks, but if you are shopping online anyhow, why not do it thru Swagbucks and earn?

Shop & Earn basically works like this: You go HERE and shop from a bunch of online retailers that you're likely already using (iTunes, anyone?). For every dollar you spend using the Shop & Earn system, you get two Swag Bucks.

I don't think this would be as big a deal if the selection of stores wasn't so huge. And we didn't offer you coupons all the time. Fortunately for Team Swag Bucks and you, there are a ton of stores and coupons galore. Yes, I know that rhymed a little.

To try and list all the places where I buy stuff would turn this blog post into an encyclopedia! We make it easy to shop at your favorite places, though - you can create a custom list of your favorite stores and have coupons emailed to you as well! There are few things better than a customized online shopping experience - it makes things easier for sure!

Rather than me telling you where I shop, I want to hear where you like to shop! Which stores in the Shop & Earn section are your favorites?


Without spending a cent - or even doing a search - if you do everything that I post today - you will have earned 404 Swagbucks today!

In just two days like that, you would have more than enough to get a $5.00 Amazon gift card (450 SBS)! So - tell us - how many SBs will you earn today?


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 Special Offers walls.

Deidre posted - Chips Ahoy video on Paymentwall. I'm currently on viewing #8. 2 SBs each

Margaret posted - Tapjoy- 10 SBs- Pixable, see the best photos on facebook. Took a few minutes to credit.

Shari posted - Tapjoy, Free, (We'll Help You Find a Job Near Your Home) 42 swag bucks immediately

Chanel posted - TapJoy>Qualify for your diabetic meter>42 sb's>credited in a few hrs.

Jean posted - Gambit>Free>Celebrate Super Sunday for 15 SB - just entered name and email and it credited almost immediately. The first time I tried this I went with the drop down after I hit submit. Don't do that - "X" it out and just wait for it to credit.

Janet posted - Tapjoy>Earn Rewards Through Your Apple or Android Phone for 107 sb

Joanna posted - Gambit>Free>Complete a survey to earn your reward and a chance to Win!
60 SB.

Pat posted - G-wallet Nikon offer, enter information, confirm email and it credits 27 instantly


Have you done your SB Dailys yet today - for an easy 5 SBs? Do you realize that makes an easy 1,825 SBs - or four $5.00 Amazon gift cards - in a year's time!?

First - vote in the Daily Poll each day. Today's question was "What do you (or would you) plan to give your partner this Valentine's Day?" You will get 1 SBs just for voting!

Then be sure to do the following: NOSO for 2 SBs (No Obligation Special Offers), Survey Dashboard for 1 SBs and Toolbar for 1 SBs - every day!

And then don't forget to play the SB games for at least 10 SBs a day - and watch Swagbucks TV for up to 70 SBs each day (5 SBs per video).


Have you checked your Survey Dashboard today? Occasionally you will have a survey to fill out. Three surveys in my dashboard this morning.

I could not even get one survey to load, the second one disappeared and I got disqualified from the third survey! But did you know we are automatically entered into a drawing for 1,000 Swag Bucks if we don't qualify for a survey?

Swagbucks holds these drawings three times each day, and you can see which drawing you've been entered in, just check the "My Swagstakes" tab of your "My Account" page.


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!

Tell us how much you save - and earn with these coupons!

    Today things are a little shaken up! I didn't get my 1SB for the toolbar, nor for the Trusted Surveys. I also did the NOSO and got a message that "You're not a winner this time." This was an unpleasant surprise!

    The satisfaction survey that the SB Blog mentioned last week never showed up in my survey list, either. I wonder if it did for anyone else.
