SB: Swago Shopping Edition Is Back

It is Swago time again, y’all!  If you’ve followed some of my Swagbucks posts, I’ve commented on my side change earnings.  This isn’t an income, but extra bucks will be great come Christmas shopping time (I cash out $25 each month to Amazon gift cards, though I spent some of it – oops!), and vaca time (everything over 2200 SBs each month are cashed out to PayPal and moved into a vacation account.

So, the details on Swago are below, but basically you get extra SB points for filling out the squares and creating a pattern. 100 SBs = $1.

You can click to join up ahead of time, but the board doesn’t go live until October 23rd.  This is what it looks like once you join (before it goes live):

The holidays are close and the online rewards site Swagbucks has a smart and fun way for you to earn and save while you spend.

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, October 23rd at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time 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 – up to 300 SB – enough for your first $3 gift card.
  • 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.
  • The game ends Friday, October 27th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Also, if you sign up through me this month, you’ll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the “Swag Ups” area of “My Account”

SB: October Swago & Spin and Win

It’s Fall, y’all.  Like so much Fall that in just a blink it will be December and we’ll be singing Christmas carols.  (I know some of y’all are already singing Christmas songs and as soon as Halloween is over, will be putting up the Christmas tree.  I’m not even talking about all that nonsense.)  Where in the world does the time go???

Swagbucks confession: I’ve been slacking a little (life gets crazy and there’s been so much of life and crazy here lately).  I’m running videos, but honestly, sometimes I don’t have time for much more. Even though it is less this past month or so than what I was averaging, it is still pretty easy extra cash.  Any extra money is better than no extra money, ya know?

If you are thinking about doing it, but feeling really confused, reach out to me.  Before signing up, create a new email address (or use an older one you don’t mind getting lots of random email at).  Swagbucks and the various offers create a lot of email and because they come from all sources, even Gmail’s awesome filtering capabilities aren’t completely helpful for all the email.  Sounds like a hassle, but once you start, it’s not. It is just nice to keep your main email clear of all the “extra.”

Anyway… Below are all the deets of the October game:

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is celebrating the fall with another big “Swago” promotion starting Monday, October 9th at 9am PDT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points 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, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. 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!
  • 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 Monday, October 16th 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 be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, October 16th to use all your spins.

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, which is enough for a $5 gift card from 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!

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:
