Swagbucks Tips: Play to Win!


Swagbucks is an awesome sight that rewards you with points for a variety of things including internet searches. It is so easy!  You trade those points in for giftcards for places like Amazon, Bass Pro, Target etc.  From December 2010 to December 2011…. I earned enough points to trade in for $1200 in Amazon Dollars!!!!!


The best valued prize in my opinion are the $5 amazon cards. Once you earn 450 points you can trade it in for an Amazon gift card. You can create an account on Amazon and just keep adding these cards to your account. They never expire. When you are ready to purchase something they will be sitting there waiting for you!

One thing I didn’t realize when I first started was you can only redeem 2 prizes per day and  5 like prizes per month. What does this mean? It meant it would take an eternity to trade all of my points in lol. A maximum of (5) those $5.00 gift cards could be claimed per month. My solution was to go ahead and purchase some of the higher value cards. I received quite a few  $50 giftcards to Amazon,  and also to Barnes & Noble & CVS. I redeemed (2) $100.00 Lowes card and redeemed a one year X-Box Live membership.

Below are some tips for earning points that I got directly from the Swagbucks site. These are the same tips that I use everyday and that helped me rack up those points! I have added some of my own as well.


Tip #1

Need To Search the Web? Do It With is the only place on the web where you can win exclusive prizes simply by doing the things you do anyway, everyday!

When searching the web, the best way to win Swag Bucks (and the only method we endorse) is to use the engine for genuine search and discovery. Our technology is designed to award users who search naturally — simply utilize our engine the way you would with other search providers.

Savvy Shopper Note: if you are going to a website, don’t access it from your favorites or type in your browser……..type “facebook’ in the Swagbucks search bar and possibly win points!!! I’ve gotten points many times just by entering facebook in the search engine.


Tip #2

Get a Toolbar, Stay Connected and Win More.

If you use Internet Explorer or Firefox, the quickest way to win Swag Bucks is to have always at your finger tips. The toolbar resides on the top of your browser and only takes seconds to install. Recently I have been awarded 1 point daily just for using the toolbar! Sweet!


Savvy Shopper Tip – keep an eye on the toolbar…sometimes there will be special offers or messages with swagcodes!


Tip #3

Invite Your Friends & When They Win, You Win.

The quickest way to win Swag Bucks is to get a little help from your friends! Invite your friends to and every Swag Buck they win searching the web, you'll win as well. Win up to 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral!


Savvy Shopper Tip – Email your friend the unique link – or post your link to your personal Facebook Page.  Everytime you win points click the “share” button and post it to your wall. Trust me it will peak your friends interest eventually.


Tip #4

Watch videos at Swag Bucks TV

Every video that you watch gives you the opportunity to earn Swag Bucks. Hundreds of videos are available and more are added every single day.

Savvy Shopper Tip: These videos are very short, and some are entertaining lol…. You can start a video and open a new browser and let it play while you work. Periodically you will need to confirm that you are still there or you will not win points. Also there are codes sometimes hidden in the videos so pay attention.


Tip #5

Share Your Opinions Through Trusted Surveys.

Major brands want to know what you think and are willing to pay you Swag Bucks to hear it. Complete your personalized profiles and start earning BIG Swag Bucks on your own time, at your own pace.

Savvy Shopper Tip: Always click on this tab daily….I’ve been getting one point a day just by clicking on the survey tab. These surveys are definitely worth applying for. It may take awhile before you find one you are eligible for. I was very frustrated at first, but overtime I have been eligible for quite a few and was rewarded with the points as promised.
