    We had a thread a while back about Swagbucks, so I figured I'd make a new one since it's close to Christmas!

    I haven't used Swagbucks in a couple of years, but I wanted to start using it again since I shop on Amazon a ton (and it's VERY easy to get $5 giftcards to Amazon from Swagbucks).

    Here's a link to Swagbucks to join:

    Swagbucks <--Full disclosure - the link here is Jessie's "referrer" link to Swagbucks. She gets points for you signing up through this one. Nothing wrong with it, just making it clear.

    I figured we could bump this thread up if there's a Swagcode as well!

    I've made $75 of gift card in the last 3 weeks. And that's missing some bonuses when I lost power to Sandy.

    OMG- that's amazing!

    I want to use it more for shopping and coupons as well- you get 10 swagbucks for each coupon you use (grocery store coupons) and certain points for each dollar you spend.

    Wow Fran! how did you do that?

    I never qualify for the surveys, so I just get the daily pole/NOSO and maybe a search or 2, or if they have an easy swag code posted on facebook that I manage to catch before expiration.

    Takes a lot of time though. Plus they broke my survey dashboard so I can't take any trusted survey now, and I haven't heard from customer service since it happened (3 days ago). But it's a nice bonus when you're stuck at home anyway.

    I have a question about the special offers....the ones that are free. If I sign up with them, and use a different e-mail address because I don't want the junk in my regular address, will I still get credit for it? Or do I have to use my swagbucks e-mail to get credit?

    I did trusted surveys, until my dashboard got reset because of their crappy customer service (now I'm getting duplicates surveys and don't want to be deactivated for cheating so not doing them). In special offers, Peanut Lab surveys. Checking radium one for random videos for 1 or 2pt. Searches, daily poll, NOSO. I check for all the extra offers and do the free sign ups for bucks etc...

    I found out two days ago that if you get an extra video link after the daily poll, after you watch it, you can click on 'watch another video' and get another one for 2pts... I managed to get about 10 of them yesterday before it ran out. I only got one today though :(

    The daily 60sb survey can be very annoying but I usually manage to do it every day. And I run swagbucks tv on another browser. Between that and codes and searches, I can reach my daily goal in like one hour in the morning (unless it's 110 bucks or something), and can usually reach 300 or more SB in a day.

    I don't work though, so it's easy to check it occasionally to see if a new survey popped up and click on the next swagbucks tv video.

    Oh and check the swagbucks FB page. It tells you when you can get a second search win and when there is a code.

    Otherwise with just the basic daily points and searches I used to get a $5 amazon card every 3 weeks or so.

    I think you only have to use a valid email address. Not sure. I usually sign up, then unsubscribe once I get credit.

    I generally just do the bare minimum- a couple of searches, the poll, the NOSO, and swagcodes if I can find them. If you average 30 Swagbucks a day (which is really, really easy), you'd get a $5 Amazon card every 15 days.

    If I try to do everything (3 searches a day, swagcodes, etc... about 10 minutes a day total), I can easily get a $5 card every week.

    I forgot about swagbucks but I'm going to start using it again. I always miss the codes, though

    I just signed up - I'm totally new to this though, never used it before. Can someone explain a little bit?

    So, like, right now so far I have 41 swagbucks within the first... five minutes of signing up lol. When it comes time to it, how do you receive your $5 worth of amazin gift cards for example?

    Like, I'm going to order something on walmart.com right now, and I clicked the link from the swagbucks site to walmart. How do I know that when I buy something from walmart, those swagbucks are going to count?

    You can redeem a card in the swagstore as soon as you have enough points.

    You should get the walmart bucks after a week or something, not sure though, I don't use that.

    So I'm confused. I have 100 SB right now. When I click on swagstore, I just see things that need like 1000's of SB's?

    Like, what Jessie was talking about, how she gets the $5 amazon card ... how do I know when I have that, etc?

    You have to choose to redeem your swagbucks for cards. $5 amazon card costs 450 swagbucks.

    Has anyone met all of the "daily goals" they have listed?

    I can't imagine getting 80+ swag bucks on a consistant basis.
