How to Use SwagBucks

Search & Win

SwagBucks is a very easy to use site.  Users earn Swagbucks for searching the web and doing other activities that can be redeemed for a variety of prizes and gift cards.  I personally prefer to turn my Swagbucks in for gift cards.  It only takes 450Swagbuckss to earn a $5 Amazon gift card.  In about 5 weeks, I have earned 4 Amazon gift cards with very little effort on my part.  Swagbucks are credited to your account immediately after you earn them, so they are available for immediate use in theSwagStoree.

There are a variety of ways to earn Swagbucks.  New users get 30 Swagbucks just for signing up.  (Click on the banner above to be directed to SwagBucks site.)  After joining, you can begin earning Swagbucks.  You can easily earn a lot ofSwagbuckss every day with very little effort.  First, download the Swagbucks toolbar.  The toolbar makes it easy to search and win.  It also has links to all of the other ways to earn Swagbucks under the "earn" tab.

Here is how to earn Swagbucks:

1)   1 Swagbuck daily for opening your browser (if you have the Swagbucks toolbar installed) or for visiting Swagbucks site.

2)   1 Swagbuck daily for taking the Daily Poll.

3)   2 Swagbucks daily for completing the NOSO path.  Simply click "skip" or "no thanks' to offers you don not want and sign up for those that interest you.  At the end, a box will pop up congratulating you on winning two Swagbucks.  You will earn two Swagbucks whether or not you take any offers.

4)   1 Swagbuck daily for visiting the Trusted Surveys page.  While you are there, you can take a few surveys.  Surveys pay anywhere from 20 to 100Swagbuckss each.

5)   Up to 50 Swagbucks (or more on Fridays) at a time for searching the web.  Searching repeatedly does not increase your chances.  It is better to do a few searches, several times a day.  I usually win 10 or 11Swagbuckss 3 or 4 times a day.  Fridays are Mega Swagbucks days.  On Friday, you have anincreasedd chance of winning large Swagbucks.

6)   10 Swagbucks for each coupon you print and redeem.  This is a great way to earn a lot of Swagbucks.  For example, if you print and redeem 20 coupons in a month, you would earn 200 Swagbucks.

7)  Up to 75 Swagbucks daily for watching very short video clips on SBTV .  The videos range in length  from 30 seconds to a couple of minutes each.

8)   You can also check the Swidget for SwagCodes.  It is a handy tool to check for current SwagCodes.

9)  Varying amount of Swagbucks can be earned daily by purchasing the Daily Deals, performing Tasks, andcompletingg Special Offers.  For example, I recently received 90 Swagbucks for a $1 Groupon purchase and 160 Swagbucks for another $3 Groupon purchase.

10)  Check the Swagbucks Facebook and Twitter pages for codes and advice from other users.  Swag Codes canalsoo often be found in the Swagbucks Blog.
