Earn Free Gift Cards by Searching and Playing Games, New Signups Get 30 Swagbucks

by Freebies4Mom on January 13, 2011 6:32 am

You can still sign-up but this code has expired so you’ll start off with 30 Swagbucks. If you still haven’t signed-up for Swagbucks then I’d love to start you off with 70 Swagbucks in your new account today. It’s the best way to earn free gift cards (and even PayPal cash) just by searching the internet and now you can win Swagbucks when you play free games.

How to get started with 30 Swagbucks (brand new sign-ups only):
1. Sign-up for Swagbucks by registering with your name, email, password, zip code, and birthdate

2. Use the SwagCode: Freebies4Games to receive an additional 40 Swagbucks (plus the 30 that everybody gets for joining, code expired Friday, January 14)

2. Now start using Swagbucks as your search engine and win more! Plus read my 4 Tips to Earn More Swagbucks

Introducing Swagbucks Free Games – New Way to Earn Swagbucks
In the Quick Links on the left side you’ll see Games which takes you to games you can play for free and randomly win Swagbucks (from 1 to 5) while you’re playing. After you get some practice in playing these games, you may want to enter into tournaments.  It will cost a few Swagbucks to enter, but if you can place first, second, or third then you can win big (from 20 to 1,000+ Swagbucks). It’s just another great option Swagbucks offers to entertain you and give you more opportunities to earn Swagbucks.  Searching the internet with Swagbucks will still be my primary way of earning Swagbvcks, but it’s nice to have more options.

What Do You Redeem Your Swagbucks For?

My favorite reward that you can redeem with your Swagbucks is the $5 gift certificate. You can redeem one after earning 450 Swagbucks. It’s the best value I’ve found in the gift cards section of the Swagstore because it costs only 90 Swagbucks per dollar. The beauty of gift cards is that you can use several in one transaction, and if you take advantage of free shipping than you really can get something for free (or pretty darn close).

My second favorite reward is the $10 Starbucks gift card. This is one of the few gift cards that Swagbucks will mail you, the rest are eGiftcards. So this makes a great gift option that you can stick in an envelope. It takes 1300 Swagbucks for a $10 Starbucks gift card.

I honestly was kind of skeptical about Swagbucks until I actually started using it consistently as my search engine. Here’s why I’m now a huge fan:
* Get Results: I get similar search results to what I would get using Google
* Rewarding: I earn Swagbucks often enough just by using it as my search engine that it feels rewarding.
* Big Wins: I often win more than a single point, my biggest one-time win was 5 points – very rewarding. There are also free codes given out often. Read their blog to catch them while they’re valid.
* Referrals are Easy: Anyone can refer their friends to use Swagbucks and earn their points faster
* $5 Gift Cards: It’s been easy for me to select and redeem my reward of choice when I have earned 450 points. You can redeem a maximum of two rewards per day.
* Not Annoying: Some websites simply annoy me because of the way they are designed or the ads they display. Swagbucks is not an annoying site and it’s quite user-friendly.

The biggest reason why I’m a fan of Swagbucks? I’m earning gift cards by doing something I’d normally do on the web – using a search engine. It doesn’t require any extra email. I’ve just bookmarked so that I can get there easily anytime I want to search for something. They also have toolbars that you can download so that it becomes part of your internet browser (and you earn 1 Swagbuck every day you have the toolbar). I hope that it becomes a great resource for you to earn some gift cards just by searching the web!

If you are already using Swagbucks with me, please leave a comment and share what gift cards you are redeeming and what your biggest single win on Swagbucks has been?

I have been using Swagbucks since around September. I am
not aggressive but have gotten 5 $5 Amazon cards, a $10 Starbucks
card and have been building up for a while, so I will be cashing in
again soon. I mainly use the search feature.


Jennifer Tyree January 13, 2011 at 9:17 am

All you have ever gotten was at most 5SB? Most Ive gotten off of one single search was 75SB!


Melissa January 13, 2011 at 9:23 am

Does the Freebies4Games code only work if you are new to sign up to Swagbucks? I already have an account and the code isn’t working for me. It says please submit a valid promotion code when I try to redeem it.


Ashley January 13, 2011 at 9:27 am

Thanks Heather, great tips. Just signed up. Keep up the
goog work.


Hal January 13, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Hey Ashley – this is Hal from Team Swagbucks – that’s a
sign up code, so it’s only valid for people joining, and not
existing users. :-) Hal

Hello I have been loyal since last august.and can redeem

Tiffany January 13, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Your highest one itme win has been 5 points? When I usually win, I usually gt around 50 points. Is that just me??


JoannaTopazT January 13, 2011 at 9:51 pm

I regularly redeem my Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards.
Since, once I’ve credited them to my Amazon account, they don’t
expire, yes, you can get stuff for free (thank you, Swagbucks for
last Christmas’s gifts to my nieces and daughter!) 5 Swagbucks as
the highest win seems low. I regularly get 10 Swagbucks in my wins
when I’m searching, and I think have occasionally gotten a 20 or a

I’ve been a member of SB since February and have made over
$300 in amazon gift cards and also started cashing out on paypal
recently. I get most of my SB through special offers. For new
members, the Swagbucks Facebook site is a helpful place to visit to
learn the ropes. Have fun and soon you’ll become a swag addict.
@Pa8144, some people get deactivated when they abuse the system and
have multiple accounts/household; share codes etc, but I have heard
about people being deactivated for consistently missing catchas.
Your best bet is to contact Swagbucks support directly, and even if
it takes some time to respond, they will respond to your

pa8144 January 14, 2011 at 11:33 am

Vicki January 14, 2011 at 11:44 am

I too was a new customer and was unable to use the promo code freebies4games.


Heather January 14, 2011 at 11:47 am

Please be aware that code is case-sensitive. You may need to type it in rather than copying & pasting.


Hal January 14, 2011 at 11:44 am

Hey Pa8144 – I’ve never seen a user deactivated without reason – you need to get in touch with compliance – they can help you get to the bottom of this!

erin January 14, 2011 at 1:00 pm

So I just signed up and it wont let me use the free code, so is it already expired or expires fri?


Heather January 14, 2011 at 1:01 pm

The code is only valid to use on the registration page for new users.


Pam January 14, 2011 at 2:28 pm

I signed up yesterday the 13th and when I used the code it kept saying it wasn’t valid so I only got the 30 sb everybody else gets. It didn’t work.


Samantha January 15, 2011 at 1:51 pm

I just signed up but every single “swag name” I put in says unavailable. Not off to a good start :(


CJ January 17, 2011 at 1:29 pm

I usually get 6-10 SB per search. If anyone is getting 50 SB every time they hit on a search, they must be the luckiest person in the world. The only thing I dont like about the gift cards is it can take up to 14 days for them to get credited to your account. I’d like to be able to redeem them from SB and use them right away if I’ve found a good deal. I dont like to keep a lot of credit in my Amazon account all the time.


Laura January 18, 2011 at 1:02 pm

I have been using swagbucks and downloaded the tool bar to use it for my search engine. I have only been using it for a short time and already have enough points to get a free magazine subscription.


erin January 19, 2011 at 12:03 am

my computer messed up after downloading tool bar. anyone else have a problem?


Fleck Farm October 17, 2011 at 11:15 am

I’ve gotten 5-6 $5 Amazon gift cards. A $25-$30 value, without me spending any money at all. Swagbucks is great! I’ve been on for a couple years.
