Swagbucks Email: Updates and Easy Points

Have you checked your Swagbucks email lately? 

Every day my Swagbucks email has opportunities for me to earn easy and fast points!  Anything from deals and special offers to simply checking out a website.

My favorite is when I get the emails asking me to watch a commercial in the beginning of a video.  You simply click on the commercial, check to see if the site matches the commercial, go back to the original email to click whether or not the commercial matches the site.

Checking your Swagbucks Email

3 POINTS!  So easy.  And you also gain points towards your video watching on the Swagbucks Meter in the video section.

Swagbucks Holiday Collector Bills

I love this time of year at Swagbucks.  Why?!!  It is Holiday Collector Bill time.  I wrote about them in the past when they released the Memorial Day collector cards.  I had so much fun collecting them!!  I never finished the last one, it was too illusive.  Darn!

Well, this Holiday season I am on the prowl.  I am collecting all the cards before the deadline of Midnight, December 26th.  I already grabbed this one:

So snagged 9 points!

There are 5 in total and when you find all of them you get a 12 point bonus!

All you gotta do is use Swagbucks as your search engine and let those Holiday Collector Bills come to you!

Swagbucks NOSO: No Obligation Special Offers

My first thought when I saw Swagbucks NOSO was "what the heck?"  I wasn't interested and didn't click on the NOSO menu for a few weeks after joining Swagbucks.  Then one day I was reading the Swagbucks blog and the subject of NOSO came up.  They explained it was simply a "No Obligation Special Offer" path you follow to get points at the end.  Oh my!  I felt stupid!  How easy is that?

So I tried it.  It took about a minute to keep clicking "next offer" and then at the end I entered the code exactly like it looks and got 2 Swagbucks.  

The offers, actually, are legitimate and tempting.  Coupons from Kellogg's.  A newsletter from Unilever.  Or more information from Benefiber.  Legitimate and well known companies. That is why I trust and enjoy Swagbucks.

Swagbucks Coupons: Clipping Coupons Has Never Been More Rewarding

I am just starting to get my credits for using coupons at Swagbucks.

About 8 weeks ago I used 2 coupons at my local Safeway store that I clipped at the Swagbucks coupon section.   I am not usually a coupon clipping person but Swagbucks makes it easy to grab them.  I figure I am on Swagbucks everyday so might as well grab some coupons of items I use often.  And when I did I saved money and received 10 points per coupon!

You will need to install the Coupon Printer but don't worry it has been verified by TRUSTe privacy services; it is safe to download.

And it does take 8-12 weeks to see the points because the coupons need to go through the store back to Swagbucks to be processed.

Let me tell you, it is worth it.  Start today, clip and use every time you shop and you should get Swagbucks every week or so.

Here are some more FAQ's about the Swagbucks Coupon program.

Happy Swagging!!!

Swagbucks and VistaPrint

I'm going to Blogher '11 in August and I need business cards.  Everyone knows Vista Print is the way to go.  You can get deals all the time there.  But wait!  Why not get a deal AND Swagbucks??  

I headed over to the Special Offers section and what do ya know, Swagbucks had a deal on Vista Print business cards AND I get 450 points on top of that!  YES!

I ordered my 500 cards for $10 and got my points instantly. 

I love the savings at Swagbucks!

My First Guest Post!

I can't believe it!  Today is my First Guest Post! It is so exciting!

Jackie at It's a WAHM Life was so gracious to post my article on Swagbucks.

It was a really fun article to write because, frankly, Swagbucks is fun so it was easy to write about it.

Swagbucks Saved Me OVER 50% at Restaurant.com

I was tooling around Swagbucks the other day and thought I would click on the Special Offers.  I rarely shop online and when I do I forget to use Swagbucks (dumb me, they have great partners like Target and Kohls). Anyway, I wanted to know what Special Offers existed, I run a blog about Swagbucks, I better know what it is all about, right?

Well, I found a great offer!  Pay $20 for a $50 gift card to Restaurant.com!

My family and I eat out about once a week so I thought this is would be a great way to save.  That is more than 1/2 off!

I first checked to be sure local restaurants were on Restaurant.com and a couple we like were.

So I went for it.

We now have $50 at a great local hangout to enjoy hamburgers and beer (er, soda).  All for only $20!

So I not only earn at Swagbucks, I SAVE at Swagbucks too!

Have you joined yet?  It's free.  Give it a try.

OH! Did I mention I got 500 Swagbucks for buying this offer?!!!  I SAVED and EARNED!

Did You Do Your Daily Poll Yet?

Everyday that I visit Swagbucks I take the Daily Poll.  You only get 1 SB BUT that is 365 a year or about 1/2 the amount to get a $5 gift card for Paypal.(I know, not much, but that is not the only thing you are doing to earn, right? It all adds up!)

The Daily Poll usually only takes a few seconds and is fun!  Today Swagbucks asked "Which family movie are you looking forward to seeing the most this summer" Cars 2 of course!

So if you have 3 seconds to spare, head over to the Daily Poll for easy Swag!

SwagBucks Super Easy Survey Profiles Equal Super Easy Points!

I was just exploring SwagBucks a little more and I thought I would take a survey.  I tried a couple and really didn't qualify; at least they told me right away.

While I was in the Survey section I clicked Profiles.  Wow! More surveys BUT these are just to get to know you better so SwagBucks can offer you better, more appropriate, surveys in the future.

These Profile Surveys only take 5-20 minutes and are super easy.  

I took the Automotive one and answered questions like what kind of car and what color it is!  I completed my survey while watching TV and got 5 SB for it.

Talk about easy! No brainer!

Also, don't forget you get 1 SB every day simply by checking in on your surveys.

Swagbucks Searching: Win Swagbucks while Searching Online

Swagbucks Search is one of the easiest ways to earn your Swagbucks. 
On average I earn 3-20 points every time I search.  And I search throughout the day.
  1. Make Swagbucks Search your homepage or install it into your Firefox search options.  
  2. Search for everything using the Swagbucks Search.  Amazon. Your own blog.  Your favorite site.  Dog sitting. Recipes.  You get the idea. Whatever you are doing that moment online, search for it with Swagbucks Search.  Don't just type into the browser the popular sites, search for them.
  3. Be sure to change your search topics every time.  You will get penalized for searching the same thing all the time. Look natural.
  4. You can earn multiple times a day.  So search in the morning, the afternoon and evening, earning 30-40 Swagbucks total for the day.  Be sure to spread out your searches throughout the day.
  5. Search on Fridays, those are Mega Swagbucks Day, where you can win 30-1000 Swagbucks in one search!  I won 50!
Happy winning!

Swagbucks Trusted Surveys

I just completed my first Swagbucks survey

Did I mention I hate doing surveys?  They are so boring.

But I know the ones here get you Swagbucks and they aren't that bad.  

First, SB tells you how long the survey should take.

Second, you get to know your odds of qualifying directly from you Swagbucks Survey Dashboard.

Third, you know exactly how many SB you get when you finish the survey.

Before you start taking surveys, you will need to register to take the surveys.  This is to weed out the surveys that are not pertinent to you.  The registration takes maybe 2 minutes and simply acts you a little about your background and your interests.  It's simple and non-intrusive.

Surveys seem to average around 50-75 SB, at least mine do.  Seems like a good trade for your time.

Happy Earning!

Swagbucks Memorial Day Collectors Bills

As I learn more about Swagbucks I find I am enjoying the site more and more.  It is fun!

As you know I like to do Swagbucks Searches to earn quick easy bucks.  Just yesterday Swagbucks releases their Memorial Day Collector’s Bills.  As you search with SB you can earn these Bills to add to a collection and when you earn all of them before Friday, May 27th you earn an extra 20 Bucks!

I am now on a mission!  I have already found one, the Washington Bill for 7 Bucks.  You'll bet I'll be looking/searching for more.

Where do you keep the Collector's Bills?  In your SB Account near the summary and ledger.

Happy Swagbucks Searching!

Swagbucks: Taking Polls

I have been a Swagbucks member now for about 2 weeks.  I love using the search capabilities to make easy points quickly.  (I am that much closer to my $20 Target Gift Card).

Another great way to earn quickly is simply taking the Daily Poll.  Sure, it only gives you 1 point BUT over a month that is 30 points for simply clicking a check mark and the voting.  Just a few days ago I voted in my favorite flavor of M&M, plain of course.  It was so easy!

You are on the Swagbucks site anyway so might as well head on over to take a quick  (30 seconds) poll and earn yourself some easy points.

Join Swagbucks with me.

What? It's that EASY? Search Online to Earn More!

I didn't join SwagBucks that long ago. But the very first thing I noticed was the ease of earning while Swagbucks searching.

If you use the search feature that SwagBucks has you WILL be rewarded with SB by the 3rd search, I do.  Sometimes it is just a couple of SB yet today it was 27.  Not bad.  It is random amounts but it's fun seeing what you will get! 

And it's not some funky search engine that gives you strange results, I have done the same exact search on Google and get the same results.

You can go to SwagBucks and do your searching.  Or if you use Firefox as your browser it can easily be placed as one of your default search engines. And you can search right from the toolbar you download to your browser.

It is so easy and fast!

What are you waiting for?  Join now! :-)

Welcome to My SwagBucks Tips

I'm Allie and I am a WAHM.  Specifically, I work on the Internet teaching people how to blog and earn money online at Ramblings of a WAHM blog.

I consider learning and earning online income a journey.  And my latest quest is at Swagbucks.

To be honest with you I was a bit skeptical with Swagbucks in the beginning.  Many of my friends were tweeting about it or sending links in their emails as a signature.   I would pretty much ignore it.  But as time went on I noticed more and more people were joining Swagbucks.  I decided to check it out.

Now, I have been part of the "earning online to get points" bandwagon before.  And I NEVER gained enough points to redeem.  Do you know why? 

  1. I never put the time in to try.
  2. Their sites just didn't have quick and easy interface.
  3. And, frankly, I forgot to visit.
Swagbucks is different, I noticed this from the beginning

They have a very simple interface and their site is laid out so simple.  No searching for ways to earn, they are there for you on the site.  And they have a toolbar that you can simply place with your browser to remind you.

They also have SO MANY ways to earn on Swagbucks.  Like surveys? They have them.  Do you watch news, home, fashion or cooking videos?  You can earn by just watching.  Take the daily poll.  Search with their search engine (I have earned many points doing this.)

I can't list all the all simple ways to earn at Swagbucks in just one post.  You'll just have to go see yourself.
