Winning Ways on Swagbucks 2/18/11

Winning Ways on SwagbucksIt's time to start preparing for the loads of fun we will be having on Monday, February 28th. Every day from now until Swagbucks birthday, they will be releasing ONE letter of a cryptogram puzzle. A cryptogram is a phrase or quote that has been encrypted by simple letter substitution. The phrase "This is a cryptogram" might turn into the encrypted phrase:


In this cryptogram you can see that throughout the phrase the letter "T" has been replaced by the letter "F", the letter "A" has been substituted with "U", and so on.

Over the next 11 days, they will announce one letter at a time on the blog. The letters may not be released at the same time each day, so make sure to check back frequently.

You will have all of the letters of the cryptogram by their birthday on Monday, February 28th. On their birthday, they will give you hints and tips on how to solve the puzzle to get a big, fat code!

Start your excitement engines and stay tuned!

Lots of SwagbucksWithout spending a cent - or even doing a search - if you do everything that I post today - you will have earned 382 Swagbucks today!

In just a couple of 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?


Swagbucks Special OffersIf 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.

Adrian posted - Just did a TrialPlay offer - insurance quote for 90 SBs. Instant credit!

Cecilia posted - Just did a very easy task under the new tasks on the left of the home page and got 12 sb right away - easy 12 SBs

Anne posted - easy task on gambit for 9 SBs

Kimberly posted - Super easy 20 SB on Special Offers/ Super Rewards/ Free Offers regarding producer Peter Gruber. It took about 45 minutes to post instead of the stated 15, but the fact is that it worked!

Cecilia posted - just did another task for 20 SBs. Had to say what category an item goes in. Some of them were x rated - yikes

Marcie posted - Gambit - Win amazing prizes - 53SB. Fill out 2 pages then confirm email. Credit immediately.

Jessica posted - Paymentwall-->WinCash247 for 33 SB. Credited instantly. No phone number or personal address required, just name and email.

Tina posted - Special Offers: Gambit: All: Complete A Survey to earn your reward and a chance to Win: 60 SB's, Credited instantly.


Swagbucks DailiesHave you done your SB Dailys yet today - for an easy 5 SBs each day? 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 is the weather like where you are at, right now?" 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 75 SBs each day (5 SBs each when the meter reaches 100%, up to 15 times a day).


Swagbucks surveysHave you checked your Survey Dashboard today? Occasionally you will have a survey to fill out. One survey in my dashboard this morning.

Survey #: 67521
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks

I got disqualified before I even started. I have gotten a lot of surveys lately, this is unusual for me, but it's not unusual to not be able to do any of them!

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 CouponsSwagbucks 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!
