Winning Ways on SwagbucksWho doesn't love pictures? More importantly, who doesn't love Swag Bucks? TSG loves them both, and that's why I'm reminding you that their Flickr page is chock full of prize-winning photos. I'm not talking about a photo contest; I'm talking about photos OF users holding up prizes they won through Swagbucks!

As if that weren't enough, they hook you up for sending them prize photos! If you send Swagbucks a prize photo, they hook you up with 10 Swag Bucks per pic - users can send a maximum of 5. Not to get all "mathy" on you, but that means you can get up to 50 Swag Bucks just for taking and sending them photos of you with your prizes.

That's not a bad deal, especially for something you might do anyway to get referrals by uploading the same photo to Twitter, Facebook or your blog if you have one. That's just another way you can be rewarded.

If you've got prize photos, send them to prizephoto@swagbucks.com and you'll see Bucks in your account and your pic hit our Flickr page. Just remember to keep it family-friendly, OK?

And while you are at it don't forget the YouTube Birthday Greetings. Make a Swagbucks birthday video and send it to PrizePhoto@Swagbucks.com and get 20 Swag Bucks for sending it in, and 150 more if they feature it in the blog!

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)


Lots of SwagbucksWithout spending a cent - or even doing a search - if you do everything that I post today - you will have earned 814 Swagbucks today!

In just a couple of days like that, you would have more than enough to get three $5.00 Amazon gift card (450 SBs each)!

So - tell us - how many SBs will you earn today?

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

Holly posted - Thanks for all the ideas! I didn't know about some of these.


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.

Tina posted - 6 SB for on Tapjoy. You get Paid after you "LIKE" the page. Paid out immediately.

Ange posted - I have three (done two thus far) task for 110 each. Very easy, a bit boring, but takes about 20 minutes. All tasks paid immediately. All are under the "task" tab on the homepage.

Nikki posted - offer for 23sb on payment wall 'Sign up to receive information on Rheumatoid Arthritis' credits in minutes.

Nicki posted - video on the payment wall for 2sb-- Chips Ahoy-- Credits multiple times.

Theresa posted - I got the 315 credit for the Blockbuster Express Groupon!!!! WooHooo!!!!

Jack posted - 20 free swag bucks under "Special offers" then "super rewards" I clicked "RemedyLife-Rheumatoid Arthritis" and entered my email then exited out and later got 20 sb for it. Hope it helps and works for you


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 "Should they continue to allow fighting in the NHL?"

Go in and vote everyday and you'll earn a bonus Swag Buck just for voting in that day's poll. If you have an idea for a poll question, submit it to PollIdeas@Swagbucks.com. If they choose your question, you'll get 100 Swag Bucks!

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?

If you do all of the above Dailies - you will earn a total of 90 SBs each day. That alone will earn you 32,850 SBs in a year's time = 73 $5.00 Amazon cards = $365.00 in FREE MONEY!


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 #: 67982
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks

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!
