SB: $200 Million By The Numbers

The digital rewards site Swagbucks just hit a major milestone – they have given their members over $200 million in cash and free gift cards (about $700 of that is mine, just this year!) since 2008! I use Swagbucks all the time to get free gift cards doing stuff I already do online, like shopping, answering surveys, watching videos (my personal favorite go to way to earn points), discovering great deals, and searching the web. To demonstrate how big a number 200 million really is, here are some fun facts:

SB: Swago To Celebrate $200,000,000 In Rewards

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is nearing $200,000,000 in cash and gift cards given back to it members. Since 2008, they’ve rewarded members for things we all do online, like shopping, watching videos, discovering deals, answering surveys, and searching the web.

Almost $700 of that is mine, in 2017 alone! I just did a check to verify the amount – I didn’t realize it was that high. That’s almost $100/mo, mainly for letting videos play like the TV and doing other small, random things. How much of that $200,000,000 has been your little piece of the pie?  If none, then you need to getcha some, LOL!

$200,000,000 is a huge number, and to celebrate they’re holding a “Swago” promotion that started Monday, September 11th.

We’ve been without electricity most of the week (and many here still are, unfortunately), thanks to Hurricane Irma, so I am getting a little bit of a late start on the SWAGO game and in getting the word out to y’all.

Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points (and points = money, folks!) on their site for doing things you already do online. If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it. Here are a few tips:

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores! (If you redeem a Swag Code, be sure to enter it where the Swago board says, so you can fill that square.)
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Tuesday, September 19th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will not be available to use until 9AM PT/12PM ET on Tuesday, September 19th and will end at 9AM PT/12PM ET on Thursday, September 21st.

My boys enjoy “spinning” the wheel, just for fun, so sometimes I’ll save up my spins for them. Just don’t let time run out before you spin.

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus! That’s enough for a $5 gift card in their Rewards Store to the retailer of your choice.

Click here right now and click “Join” to get started! If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of next month, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!
