60 Swagbucks for New Members

by on February 25, 2010 7:21 am

Welcome to Swagbucks 3.0, it’s new and improved to celebrate their 2nd birthday.  If you still haven’t signed-up for Swagbucks then I’d love to start you off with 60 Swagbucks in your new account anytime before March 4. It’s the best way to earn free gift cards (and PayPal cash too) just by searching the internet.

How to get started with 60 Swagbucks (brand new sign-ups only):
1. Sign-up for Swagbucks and enter the code FREEBIES4MOMS (case sensitive so be sure it’s all caps, enter it in the blue box that says SwagCode)

2. You’ll get 60 Swagbucks as a new member as a bonus for sigining-up today (normally 30)
4. Hurray! You’ve got 60 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 today is Swagbucks Birthday and that means you should keep an eye on the Swagbucks blog, @Swagbucks on Twitter, and Swagbucks on Facebook for new codes to get free 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).

So what’s new about Swagbucks 3.0?
* All Swagbucks multiplied by 10 – don’t freak out because it’s applies sitewide both to your account and to the rewards so none of the prizes got inflated.
* More Ways to Earn – sounds like the toolbar got improved and there are more “no obligation” offers which translates to more ways to earn Swagbucks
* New Look – everything got prettier, but don’t worry it’s still the Swagbucks we know and love
* Swagstakes Portal – an easier way to access all the sweepstakes if you want to try your luck at them

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 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. 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?

"Get Results: I get similar search results to what I would get using Google"Really? I've never gotten anything useful with Swagbucks. I have one of my browsers set to use it as the default search, just so I can occasionally get points (been using it for a very long time, and I have yet to get enough points for anything), but I still have to run my query through Google in order to get results that I can use.


Val February 26, 2010 at 7:23 am

Just signed up. Hope it works as well as I'm hoping.


Sara S February 25, 2010 at 11:23 pm

It want to chime in a little—if you just joined today…please know that it is not a normal day! The site ran slow for most of the day and they released a bunch of codes. On a normal day, they MAY release one code but that isn't really the whole "point" of Swagbucks anyway. If you download the toolbar, you will have the search bar in your browser. Use this search bar instead of your normal search engine and you will randomly win bucks. I, like many moms, don't have the time to be looking for codes (although Heather did an AWESOME job today with clues) so I don't usually get the codes unless they are "in my face" type! I haven't racked up a BUNCH of swag bucks but I figure that it is something for not a lot of effort, so I don't mind!


medest February 25, 2010 at 10:33 pm

can you tell us where all the letters were after this game is over so that those of us who have given up may beable to figure it out the next time they have something like this again? Also, what is a swidget because I clicked on widget and swidget but could not find the letter. I am extremely frustrated and have just given up.thanks,karen


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Any hints for 2 and 3???


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 9:00 pm

WOW, the code for the 30 swagbucks is FRUSTRATING!Plus every time I do find another code & try to enter it the site crashes.I really hope once the kinks get worked out we can get more points


Leslie February 25, 2010 at 8:36 pm

There's a new swgcode in the swag blog. Watch the video for the clue!


Jan February 25, 2010 at 8:10 pm

New code on Blog, watch video…6SB


Kari February 25, 2010 at 8:00 pm

I'm not having any luck at this search….I found 1, 5 and 6Ugh! I don't get it!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 7:55 pm

did you post about the 13SB code that is found in the message "hip hip hooray" in the toolbar?


nhockaday February 25, 2010 at 7:42 pm

The 7th letter is also lowercase and everyone should be able to figure it out now. I figured it out by the 4th letter.


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 7:34 pm

I am getting really sick of this website, everytime I find a code it expires before I have a chance to enter it because their site keeps crashing or times out or some other problem.


Jennifer, A Self-Confessed Foodie February 25, 2010 at 7:33 pm

The sixth letter is up in the Swidget!


Liam and Lauren's mom February 25, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Maroon gave me 20Thanks so much


nhockaday February 25, 2010 at 6:16 pm

New code tip on the blog. it took me about 30 seconds to find what they were talking about and find the code.


Melissa February 25, 2010 at 6:14 pm

the 5th letter is on twitter


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Ok so I signed up for this but have to admit it seems like a huge waste of time! I know I dont have time to sit and search for "codes" to enter. Is there a real purpose to the Swagbucks website or is it just to search for "stuff" and find codes to enter? I looked for the code of FB and there is nothing showing up and the one in the blog wont work, so there went 45 min. of my day. If you like it and it works for you more power to ya but its not for me!


Megan February 25, 2010 at 5:52 pm

I can't find the FB one either.


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 5:45 pm

what helps me find them is once on the right page from tips type in "ctrl f" then search for the word letter throughout the page


Michelle Brooks February 25, 2010 at 5:44 pm

If you go to swagbucks twitter page there is a code for 8 swagbucks.


Heather Brandt February 25, 2010 at 5:39 pm

I keep trying to get the toolbar code to work in search & win site but it is not working! agggh!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 5:27 pm

Wheres the new 22 point code at?????


Shannon February 25, 2010 at 4:58 pm

I just found another 13pt code- it's In the toolbar in a "message" from TSG.


Mississippi Mama February 25, 2010 at 4:58 pm

Clicking on page two of the discussions just takes me right back to the wall on FB. WHAT is the letter???


Emily February 25, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Thank you SO much for all the Swagcodes updates! I REALLY appreciate the help! 🙂


tammy February 25, 2010 at 4:40 pm

i cant find it in discussions either


nhockaday February 25, 2010 at 4:34 pm

I don't see page 2 of the discussions. Can someone help?


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 4:32 pm

Why is there another "4th letter" in one of the entourage items in the swag store?


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 3:53 pm

I'm not seeing anything in the discussions, can I get more of a clue than that?


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 3:26 pm

3rd letter look in discussions


Heather February 25, 2010 at 3:21 pm

I was getting so frustrated looking because I was sure I had the right code for 20 points but then realized I was not typing it exactly as it was without the space…just got it thank you. I just joined swagbucks today…not sure if I like it yet because I am still trying to figure it all out.


kaymore February 25, 2010 at 3:14 pm

Thanks for the very clear hint on the 20 point code. I always have a hard time figuring these out. On top of that, I had to type the code in half a dozen times before it worked (and I know that I didn't misspell it.)


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 3:00 pm

I tried FREEBIES4MOMS several times am I doing something wrong? Is it working for everyone else?


JoAnna February 25, 2010 at 2:50 pm

I don't understand the hunt.. I am on my points thingy and the last word is LOGOUT that didn't work and if I go to my referrals there is a man standing there saying :there is nothing here.Can someone help me to understand how to read the clues.. I don't even see 5 drop down boxes???


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Is Swagbucks safe to use? I feel a bit uneasy with their Terms of Use. Swagbucks does sound like an exciting program to join however.


sunnymum February 25, 2010 at 2:25 pm

The second letter in the 30 pt swaghunt is up on the Swagstore. Just look at the recently added items. Also, for new swagbucks members, don't be discouraged—the site is usually never this slow and spotty!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm

thanks for your help for the 20 sb really helped your clues.


Heather February 25, 2010 at 1:24 pm

The code has an "S" on the end – it's FREEBIES4MOMS. Try typing it in (don't copy & paste). Also be sure the code is all capitalized (the codes are case-sensitive). Please try again! I hope it will work for you!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

I've earned $20 in Amazon since I signed up in January-and I think its fun!! Thanks!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 1:16 pm

I just signed up today…I am wondering if it always takes this long for each of pages…and the site for that matter…to load! This is crazy!


Ray and Ginger Wuthrich February 25, 2010 at 1:06 pm

My friend just signed up and only received 30 points instead of 60.


Crista February 25, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Looks like their site is overloaded. I'm having trouble getting to the main page. And I'm just trying to do a search!


pennypincher February 25, 2010 at 1:02 pm

My brain is fried today i see since i still can't figure this one out!


peterpan February 25, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Thanks for the clue on where to find the "drop down" code! I got it! Yes, Happy Birthday SwagBucks!


Jen February 25, 2010 at 12:42 pm

Just signed up & the code worked for me.


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 11:56 am

They also up the prizes by 10x. So it takes the same amount of time to reach a prize. I was trying to get 40 to get a gift card now that same gift card is 400


Valerie February 25, 2010 at 11:13 am

Have been a member since January. Just won 10 swagbucks today! I always use it as my search engine and have over 1000 SB's (with the multiplier). Thanks Heather!


Heather February 25, 2010 at 10:41 am

The code does work, try typing it in all caps (don't copy & paste and the code is case-sensitive). Please try again if it didn't work the first time!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 10:30 am

The code isn't working for me either 🙁


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 9:18 am

I've been using it since i found your site about mid-January. i'm now up to 1170 SB! i'm about to trade them in for Amazon cards. i just installed the toolbar and use it as my regular search engine and i've been quite pleased with the results. now that i've linked it to my fb account (which i just noticed you could do about three days ago) many of my friends have asked and now i have many referrals! yay! thanks for turning me on to it!!


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 8:36 am

I've been using that site off and on for months and I still haven't even reached 60 swagbucks (except for when they did this multiply by 10 thing). I do not think it's worthwhile. Maybe if you turn swagbucks into a "lifestyle choice" and use it as it as your singular search engine and become a cheerleader and try to get everyone else to use it and obsess over it and follow it on facebook (I don't even follow my FRIENDS on facebook, let alone some company). That ignores the fact that the search results I usually get on there are usually quite bad. The first few results are almost always advertising some product.


Heather February 25, 2010 at 8:23 am

Just look at "Just Swagbucks" on Facebook and you'll see their post that starts with "A benefit of multiplying our bucks…" and the code follows that.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom


Anonymous February 25, 2010 at 8:14 am

Where is the SwagCode on facebook? Is it in a comment or am I just missing it? Thank you.


Tiffany February 25, 2010 at 7:49 am

The code FREEBIES4MOMS isn't working


Tiffany February 25, 2010 at 7:48 am

The swag code FREEBIES4MOMS isn't working.


Tammy February 25, 2010 at 7:35 am

I've only been a member since December and with just searching I already have redeemed $40 in Amazon gift cards!!! I love SwagBucks!
