*Expired* 50 Swagbucks for New Members

by Freebies4Mom on May 3, 2010 8:30 am

I love to help you earn free gift cards, read the current Swagbucks posts to learn how! If you still haven’t signed-up for Swagbucks then I’d love to start you off with 50 Swagbucks in your new account if you sign-up before Friday, May 7.  It’s no secret that it’s the best way to earn free gift cards (and PayPal cash too) just by searching the internet.

How to get started with 50 Swagbucks (brand new sign-ups only):
1. Sign-up for Swagbucks and enter the code SWAGNATION5 (type that code in rather than copying & pasting, case sensitive so be sure it’s all caps, enter it in the blue box that says SwagCode)

2. You’ll get 50 Swagbucks as a new member as a bonus for sigining-up today (normally 30)
4. Hurray! You’ve got 50 Swagbucks to get your new account kicked-off with
5. Now start using Swagbucks as your search engine and win more plus read my 4 Tips for Earning More Swagbucks to find out how to maximize this cool source of freebies.

Exisiting Swagbucks Users:
Don’t feel left-out because I’ve got a tip on an easy way to start earning more Swagbucks.  This week only they will be doubling the amount of “winning moments” for those searching on Swagbucks.  Starting tomorrow (Tuesday) you can answer the daily poll and earn Swagbucks for doing so.  Better yet, you can submit an idea for a new poll and if it gets used you earn 100 Swagbucks.  And be sure you didn’t miss my 4 Tips for Earning More Swagbucks and feel free to leave your tips and links to your blog posts with tips too.

My Fave Swagbucks Gift Card

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).

Why Do I Love Swagbucks?
I honestly was kind of skeptical at first 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’m winning 10+ Swagbucks randomly throughout the day and they add up fast.  There are also free codes given out often. Read their blog and follow them on Twitter 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 use a Swagbucks toolbar in Firefox so it’s always available for me to type in my searches.  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?

It's 7pm Mountain time on friday and I just signed up for swagbucks. I decided to use the 50 points code on a lark and it worked!!!

The Amazon gift cards are posted to your account. So you would go to Swagbucks, then "View Account", and "My Gift Cards". You copy & paste the eGift card code and load it into your Amazon account.

Exactly how do u cash in the amazon gift cards, do they mail them to you? Thanks, I've never used a amazon gift card yet, but am ready to cash in.

I've been with Swagbucks for over a year and have only gotten enough SB for $15 in Amazon gift codes. When I win a search I sometimes cant get the SB to add to my account, apparently its an issue with my browser.

Heather I have a question for you: I have been posting SB links in my blog and I have several referals ((YAY!!)) as a "bigger" blogger, I am sure you probably receive WAY more referals than I do. Do you ever "max out" on the number of Amazon Gift Cards you are allowed to receive per month (5 per GC X 2 =10 $5 amazon GC per month). If so, what other prizes to you redeem for. Last month was my best SB month yet- I have been redeeming for $5 amazon GC and I am "saving" up to get my son a nice birthday present 🙂

I agree! I am new to couponing and just joined swagbucks today and am loving it so far.


Allison May 3, 2010 at 11:34 am

I just redeemed another $5 card today! I'm slowly saving up my Amazon money for….who know? Diapers? Whatever I may end up needing at some point. And it will be free! I already got a potty training book for free, one that we had when I was a kid and I loved it, and wanted my potty-training son to read it too.


Heather May 3, 2010 at 10:37 am

Try typing it in (don't copy & paste) and make sure it's all caps except the number "5" at the end.


debber May 3, 2010 at 10:36 am

oops and yay – got it to work. it did NOT like copy and paste so I wiped it out (maybe I grabbed a space by mistake) and just keyed in and it worked. Thanks!!


debber May 3, 2010 at 10:33 am

It says invalid promotion code – I have even done a copy/paste ofSWAGNATION5Any suggestions? Thanks

Best deal is the $25 gift card for 400 points. Only catch is that you cant use it at, but their affiliate, which means no 80% off codes are applicable…

I've trade in Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards, gift card, gift card, and several $5 Paypals.
