Winning Ways on Swagbucks 2/20/11

Winning Ways on SwagbucksReminder to connect your Swagbucks account to your Facebook if you haven't already.

This is a great way to get referrals and inflate your account like a hot air balloon. Every time you get a search win, redeem a prize, even snag a Swag Code....your Facebook friends can know about it instantly.

But, to protect ourselves and you, once you connect your Swagbucks and Facebook accounts, you have to update your preferences and customize what you want to appear in your newsfeed and what you don't.

You can update your preferences all the time, maybe one week you want people to know when you win on a search, maybe another week you don't. Simply go to your preferences for Facebook Connect and alter your settings how you like.

Remember if you connect your accounts and don't update your preferences, NOTHING will post to your Facebook. So be sure to update!



New to Swagbucks? Check out Swagging for Dummies - it will help you learn to 'swag'!

(NOTE - This is not my work - this wonderful Swagbucks resource was compiled by Susie Bear, along with Ashley, Chelle, Stacey, Pamela T, Pamela M, Monica, Kelsey, Danielle, Jade, Sheryl, Delene, Deanna, Kathy, King Swagfred & Jodi)


Swagbucks has released the second clue of the cryptogram puzzle. Read the blog post explaining the cryptogram puzzle.


Lots of SwagbucksWithout spending a cent - or even doing a search - if you do everything that I post today - you will have earned 573 Swagbucks today!

In one day 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?

Rebecca posted - Thanks for the tips. I'll have to check out the offers.

Elizabeth posted - I've bookmarked this post. There are so many new ways for me to add Swagbucks!


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.

Ann posted - gambit offer for 35 SBs....you have to skip a lot of pages, Celebrate St. Patrick's Day and Enter for a Chance to Win $1,000,000.00 instant credit

Ange posted - Pink Nation on the slider...easy 7. Email confirmation and immediate credit.

Stephanie posted - Bonus Bucks for video on the home page!!! Be sure to click the little green "Watch another video" to get 2 more bucks for each of those videos......Already earning a bunch of bucks! Earned a total of 36 bucks before it cut me off!!! Yay!!!

Yvetter posted - What do you think of Facebook, tell us for a chance to win! for 23 sbs. gambit wall

Matt posted - tapjoy> Remedy Life - three of them for 39 each!! very easy!

Heather posted - Gambit>free>Win Amazing Prizes>53 SBs - fill out first 2 pages & conf. email. Instant credit. Good to see offers crediting easily.

Yvette posted - I signed up for emusic on payment wall for 192 sbs I didn't use a credit card it let me sign up through Paypal. Then I canceled it.

Darlene posted - I completed one of the Swagbucks tasks and got 20 points. It was Fun! Thanks, for posting.


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 was your first job?" 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). What's your favourite game or video?

Do all of the above Dailies for a total of 90 SBs each day.


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

Survey #: 67734
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks

I got disqualified from the first one before I even got started. The next one I got disqualified after a few minutes - as usual. 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!

Tell us how much you save - and earn with these coupons!
Here's a few I found today:

♦ Save $1.00 on any ONE (1) VELVEETA Product (32oz.)

♦ Save $1.00 on any ONE (1) KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner (5-pack)

Did you know that if you put in your zip code you may see more coupons? Without a zip code I found 112 coupons - with the zip code 90210, I found 144 coupons!

Krista posted - I think mine took about 3-4 weeks to pop up in my account. They are a nice surprise when they show up because I just print them off and I forget which one I printed from SwagBucks.
