Winning Ways on Swagbucks 3/2/11

Winning Ways on SwagbucksLooking back on the Swagbucks 3rd Birthday Celebration, it’s kind of crazy to think about how much they have evolved since 2008 – in fact, while there are hints of that original Swagbucks.com in their current homepage, they have undergone several facelifts and growing spurts over the years to arrive where they are now, with so many different ways for you to earn.

It’s not just the features of the site that have changed – the amount of bucks they have given out has changed too. Here’s the average amount earned per day each year (adjusted numbers, since the system switched over last year):

2009: 64
2010: 111
2011: 172

At this rate, who knows how much more you could be earning per day in just 12 more months?

To take a walk down memory lane, visit their Swagbucks Evolution page; for the veteran Swaggernauts it’ll be a blast from the past – for the newer members of the Swag Nation, it’s a cool little history lesson!

How long have you been Swagging?


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 626 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)!

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

Mar 2 - 616 SBs, Mar 1 - 516 SBs, Feb 28 - 335 SBs, Feb 27 - 603 SBs, Feb 26 - 414 SBs, Feb 25 - 275 SBs, Feb 24 - 480 SBs

Total in one week = 3,249 SBs - or over seven $5 Amazon gift cards

That's an average of 464 SBs per day! 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.

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 "Where do you use Swagbucks the most? "

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

Then watch Swagbucks TV for up to 75 SBs each day (3 SBs each when the meter reaches 100%, up to 25 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 Trivia Challenge on Facebook
Folks who play for Swag Bucks will earn between 1 – 10 Swag Bucks per successful round. For the first month that this game is live, they will be awarding a lot of 50 and 100 Swag Buck wins.


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 #: 69438
Survey Length: 15 Minutes
Reward Amount: 50 Swag Bucks

Survey #: 69479
Survey Length: 20 Minutes
Reward Amount: 38 Swag Bucks


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!

Your freebies not arriving? We really hate to blame the mail carrier, but a couple of readers who weren't receiving any freebies, put a "Hold Request" on their mail for 2 weeks and chose "Pick-up", rather than having it delivered. When they went to pick up their mail, they got 2 plastic bags full of samples!
