Do you Swag?

Are you a person that is online quite a bit? If so, you should sign up for Swag Bucks. It's an online reward program that give you Swag Bucks (SB) for searching, finding codes, watching videos, taking polls, etc. It's not a get rich quick's not even a get SB quick scheme, but it pays off. With running an online business I am on the internet all the time. I will take a few minutes a day to do a few searches, search for codes, and sometimes I even watch some videos (have them going on the background!) For every 450 SB earned I get a $5 Amazon gift card. I know that sounds like a lot of SB, but they are fairly easy to earn. I recently ordered a bunch of books for my daughter with the gift certificates I earned for SB. There are other rewards that you can get with SB, but the $5 Amazon gift cards seem to be the best deal. Amazon carried just about ANYTHING and lots of items ship for free if they are over $25.

Swag Bucks is celebrating it's 3rd birthday on Monday and they are having a HUGE extravaganza where you can earn LOTS and LOTS of SB in one day. So this is a good time to get started. I earn SB for people that I refer, but only when they search. When you sign up for Swag Bucks you get 30 SB and if you use the code "BirthdayFun," you will earn 25 Swag Bucks on top of that. This code is ONLY good for people who haven't joined yet - existing members won't be able to use it. Please click the SB banner below to sign up.
Search & Win

Here is how you earn SB~
This is the SB search engine. You don't earn SB for every search, but you can typically earn SB 3 times a day. I will search in the morning...and can usually get SB after my 2nd or 3rd search. I really don't like to spend a lot of time searching because it becomes a chore...and I am trying to keep this fun and easy. If I remember I will search mid-day and then again before bed. Earning from 3 searches a day seems to be the max.
If you keep an eye out on the Swag Blog: then you can find codes for SB posted throughout the day. If you follow SB on Facebook or Twitter then you will get alerted on when a new codes is out and how to find it. I don't get all codes, but I do happen to catch some of them.When you get a code you enter it in the box I have pointed out below. This box is found at:
If you look at my account details you see that I have 10 referrals, but most of those are inactive searchers so I haven't been getting many referral SB, but I do find using Swag Bucks is still worth it. Why don't you try it out. Maybe I should form a little email group that I can alert when a new code is out. Let me know if you are interested in being in my email alert group. Any questions??

I just thought of another way I've earned bucks. There is a link at SB for Shop & Earn. Basically you click through SB here to find your fav online shops and you earn 2 SB for each dollar you spend. I don't worry about special offers, but it's been easy to get lots of bucks. It does take about 5 weeks for the bucks to show up in your account...but it's just an extra click to get what you want!!
