Last week Swagbucks was going to roll out changes to Swagbucks TV (SBTV), but in all of the hullabaloo going on 'round these parts, it got pushed... until TODAY! Here are the changes coming your way:
1. Facelift - there's now a cleaner, more streamlined look to SBTV. Notice the share buttons and as highlighted below that the video you are currently watching will appear alongside the related videos:
2. Continuous Play go bye bye - no more continuous play, no more "Are You Still There?" popups. You now watch videos when YOU want, and in the amount that you want.
3. More frequent wins - Instead of winning 5 Swag Bucks for every 20 videos you watch, you'll now earn 3 Swag Bucks for every 10, meaning that you win faster and you get 6 for every 20 you watch. Be aware that every once in a while you may encounter a CAPTCHA after a win, but this is no big since without continuous play you'll actually be in front of your computer when you win!
4. Rate and Comment! Whether you LOVE a video or think it isn't so hot, you can let them (more importantly everyone else) know about it through their rating and comments system - rate a video anywhere from 0-5 stars and leave a brief (and appropriate review) - plus, when you get to a video for the first time, you'll actually be able to to see what other people thought of it AND share it on Facebook/Twitter.
These changes should be live a little later today, so take some time to check them out! They are really excited to bring this changes to you - they really think this will enhance your experience and make SBTV even more fun!

Without spending a cent - or even doing a search - if you do everything that I post today - you will have earned 548 Swagbucks today!
In just one day like that, you would have more than enough to get a $5.00 Amazon gift card (450 SBs each)!
So - tell us - how many SBs will you earn today?
Trish posted - Quite an informative post. I've been pleased with the things I've gotten thanks to swagbucks.
Michelle posted - Neat! I did not know that swagbucks would award you for sending photos of what you have won. Thanks for the info.
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.
Johanna posted - Tapjoy - Big Games SO, 250 SB credited instantly, woo hoo!
Leslie posted - I did the eMusic offer on Paymentwall for 192 also and it credited in about 2 hours.
Gabrielle posted - Task>Answer a few Questions>16 SB
I know it's not a SO but I thought I would share.
Valerie Faust posted - The Jun videos are the best...when the video is finished and I do mean completely finished refresh your sb tally. leave the video open cause on the bottom it says "Watch another video" just click and re watch it...and repeat. I don't do the offers till I get back home from picking up the girls. But doing the poll, noso..etc first... always help then go for the web...they always add up. I have always done some of your tasks..it helps. I even get the girls involved in it...like doing their vocabulary from their homework...you never know which one will pull out the 8's, 10's and 14's or more...my youngest gets excited.
Have 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 Pete Rose be allowed to be voted into the MLB Hall Of Fame?"
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!
Have you checked your Survey Dashboard today? Occasionally you will have a survey to fill out. Two surveys in my dashboard this morning.
Survey #: 68023
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks
Survey #: 68063
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 100 Swag Bucks
I got disqualified after a few minutes from the first one - as usual. The second one I got an error message: "This study is closed for maintenance, please try again later." 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.

QUICK FREEBIE TIP:
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.
