*Expired* Swagbucks Earns You CASH

by Freebies4Mom on July 1, 2009 4:51 pm

Search & Win

Swagbucks just announced that you can now redeem 700 Swagbucks for $5 Cash with PayPal. What a great option so you can use that cash for anything (like bills). If you still haven’t signed-up for Swagbucks then I’d love to start you off with 30 Swagbucks in your new account today. It’s the best way to earn free gift cards (and now cash) just by searching the internet.

How to get started with 30 Swagbucks (brand new sign-ups only):
1. Sign-up for Swagbucks by registering with your name,
2. You’ll get 30 Swagbucks as a new member, this is the normal promotion
4. Hurray! You’ve got 30 Swagbucks to get your new account kicked-off with
5. Now start using Swagbucks as your search engine and win more!

My favorite reward that you can redeem with your Swagbucks is the $5 Amazon.com 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 Amazon.com 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 the only gift card that Swagbucks will mail you, the rest are all 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 Amazon.com 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 Swagbucks.com 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. 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?

Swagbucks is great! Although it takes a LONG time to get for the e-gift cards in your account. Like 10 business days! One day, I wanted to buy something on Amazon had finally earned enough swagbucks and I thought it was a one-second thing to redeem your swagbucks and get the e-card. Nope! But still great and super-easy way to earn gift cards using a search engine.Question: I know if you refer a friend and they earn swagbucks, you also earn the same swagbucks (up to 100 swagbucks, I think). Can you refer your husband and then you both get the same swagbucks adding up to double the amount of gift cards?

I just started using swagbucks in the last month and I already have 70 swagbucks! I've won 5 swagbucks twice and I always win at least 1 buck a day. Now instead of googleing things, I swagbuck them. I can't wait to get my $10 starbucks card in a few weeks. What a great system.

Whoa! BrownTown, how did you get 70 in one month..and 5 swagbucks twice!? I average 1-2/day and have only gotten 2 swagbucks twice over the last several months. Took me about 2 months to get 45 swagbucks. Is there a certain time of day when you get the big ones?

I average a $5 Amazon gift card a month. I've won 3 swagbucks a couple of times, but it's mostly one. You can win more than once a day.

I am redeeming for Amazon gift cards, with the plan being to use that "banked" (in my Amazon account, at least) money for holiday shopping. (I started using Swagbucks in January and have so far earned about $30 in Amazon g.c.'s.) My biggest win has been 5 points at a time.

I love Swagbucks! I've only been actively using it for a short time, and I've earned $35 in Amazon gift cards! Now that they do Paypal, I think I will be saving up for that. I keep telling people to sign up, because it's so awesome. But it seems too good to be true, so they have a hard time believing that it works!To the first commenter: you are not allowed more than one account per household, so if yo referred your husband, you might get deactivated.

Hi! Thanks so much for the heads up about Swagbucks. I have been using it for a few weeks now. I have a question about the codes in the blog…Do they come out and say "Here is a new Swagbucks code"? Or is it more like a 'clue' as to what the code is…like something you have to figure out yourself? I am so confused! Thank you!

Jamie – The codes are usually pretty obvious, they don't make them too hard to find. The challenge is seeing the code before it expires – sometimes the codes they release only last a few hours. So I don't spend any extra time trying to find them. Once in awhile I'll catch one at the right time on Twitter.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Swagbucks is just fun. We got a Ding for the laptop. Something I would never buy but fun to have for free.

They usually send emails to you with swag codes as well. Also if you save your swag bucks alot of times the giftcards go onsale for a short period of time. So hold off til you see the sale unless you need the giftcard right away. I have 240 swag bucks right now that took me about 3 months. I am saving them for a sale or something bigger. One time I won 10 swag bucks and today as soon as I logged on I won 3 swag bucks!
