Winning Ways on SwagbucksSwagbucks posted:
"Our 3rd Birthday is coming up and we're going to have a crazy day! Expect codes galore, a brand new look and feel for the Swagbucks Blog, a new site feature that'll have big benefits for those of you who have been adding Swag Friends, and a new product that just may redefine the way you use Search. All of that and MORE fun and games this Monday, February 28th - be there or be square!"

So you might be wondering - how do I add friends - and is it safe? here is all they can see if you become a Swag Friend - your name, your swag name, how many swagbucks you currently have - that's it. No other personal info at all.

So if you want to add me, my swag name is frugalfreebies - what's yours?

How to invite Swagbucks Friends:
♦ Click on "My Friends" on the drop-down menu on the top of the Swagbucks homepage.
♦ To add friends, click on blue "Find Friends" on the right hand side.
♦ Click on the tab "Enter Email Address / Swagname"
♦ Click the circle next to "Swagname"
♦ Paste your friend's swagname in the box and click "Find Friends"
♦ The swagname will appear on the next page, click each name and a check mark will appear that says request was sent.

How to accept Swagbucks friends:
Remember everyone needs to accept their swag friends to finish the request!
♦ Click on "My Friends" on the drop-down menu on the top of the Swagbucks homepage.
♦ Any friend requests you may have will be there and you can click to Accept them.

What is your Swag Name?
Go to the Swagbucks main page, click on Promote then Promote Banners, then check what Your Referral Link says. The last part is your Swag Name.

(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 275 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)!

Now, if you do all of the things I post in my daily Winning Ways posts - you could earn:

Feb 22 - 548 SBs, Feb 21 - 814 SBs, Feb 20 - 573 SBs, Feb 19 - 289 SBs, Feb 18 - 382 SBs, Feb 17 - 645 SBs, Feb 16 - 609 SBS
Total in one week = 3,860 SBs - or eight $5 Amazon gift cards

That's an average of 551 SBs per day! 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.


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.

Samantha posted - On Gambit - Enter an IPAD Sweeps for 60 if you have it put your email and just skip through the offers pretty quick for 60 swagbucks

Laura posted - 60 SB gambit survey qualified and credited instantly!!

Gabrielle posted - Payment Wall>Join Diabetic Connect - a social network that empowers people living with diabetes.>5 SB

Chanel posted - Payment Wall>Pay with coupons>12sb's>credited in about an hour

Colleen posted - on the slider- a coke video for 2 and car insurance for 34 (only need to select your state, no personal info needed) both gave credit right away

Maria posted - Just wanted to note that I got credit for the Payment wall coupons offer for 12, even though I did NOT download the toolbar!!


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 "Are you planning on attending Swagbucks' birthday celebration on Monday? "

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 = seventy-three $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 #: 68097
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks

Apparently I got kicked out of the survey because it thinks I lied about my company making less than 200 million/year. Do they know something I don't? I work from home, for myself... LOL

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) Barber Foods NEW Seasoned Selects Stuffed Chicken Breast product

♦ Save $1.00 on any TWO (2) OREO Spring Cookies (16.6oz.)

♦ Save $0.55 on Any Challenge Butter

♦ Save $0.75 On any ONE package of LAND O LAKES ® EGGS

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!

Ruby posted - Coupons work. I am at 90 for the day. It seems like every time I refresh my homepage, I am getting more coupon points. Keep it up TSG. Thanks.

Some don't use their last name when requesting freebies - to foil the telemarketers who take your name and address and look up your phone number to call you. To avoid these nuisance calls, they use only their first and middle name, or change some of the letters in their last name. Another benefit is that way you can track where the junk mail came from.
