  • Exclusive CFO code when you register for Swag Bucks

    Search & WinI’ve mentioned Swag Bucks many times now and I want to thank everyone who signed up for Swag Bucks using my referral link because I’ve gotten lots of bucks thanks to you! Apparently the folks at Swag Bucks noticed too, because they’ve given me a chance to give new “Swaggernauts” two bonus Swag Bucks for signing up through CFO.

    What is Swag Bucks? In a nutshell, it’s an incredibly easy way to earn free money. Or stuff. All you have to do is search through their site or tool bar and you’ll earn Swag Bucks, which you can redeem for prizes like gift certificates, video games and more. I’ve only ever redeemed my Swag Bucks for Amazon.com gift certificates, because it’s the best value (for me, anyway, since I’ve now earned hundreds of dollars in Amazon gift certificates).

    If you haven’t registered for Swag Bucks yet, then today’s the day! You’ll get 3 Swag Bucks for signing up, and another 2 Swag Bucks when you enter the code CFOBLOG. Just be sure to use my referral link. The code will expire at midnight on Friday, March 27.

    Once you’ve signed up with Swag Bucks, consider following them on Twitter, subscribing to their blog, downloading their toolbar, and becoming their fan on Facebook. Codes for free Swag Bucks have been posted on each of these media, and the faster you collect Swag Bucks, the faster you’ll be able to collect free prizes. (Enter free codes on the “My Account” page – you can get there easily by clicking on the box on the homepage that tells you how many Swag Bucks you have.)

    If I have one complaint about Swag Bucks, it’s that the free codes are often way too time-sensitive. Sometimes they’ll only be good for an hour or two, and by the time their blog feed has been updated in Google Reader, the code’s expired.

    I’ve found that I can usually earn Swag Bucks by searching in the morning and at night. Without referrals, I earned my first Amazon gift certificate, which costs 45 Swag Bucks, in less than a month. So don’t wait any longer to sign up – start searching and winning now!

    And since this code is just for new Swaggernauts, I’ll have a special giveaway for anyone who’s signed up for Swag Bucks using my referral link tomorrow.

    1. thank you! I signed up! When you say you usually earn bucks by searching in the evening, so you mean for codes? or by doing searches through their site?

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Kristine – I mean I search through their site. I can usually win twice a day, in the morning and the evening. Thanks for using my referral link and have fun!

    3. Do the gift cards offered by Swagbucks change frequently? I’d been saving up for the Pizza Hut card and I checked yesterday and can’t find it on their site anymore. Is it possible they will add it back onto the site? I don’t really see anything else that I’d want to use my Swagbucks on.

    4. Chief Family Officer says:

      @CJ – I don’t know if they’ll bring the Pizza Hut gift card back but they’ve definitely brought stuff back before. PaidTwice and I had a panicky moment when the Amazon card disappeared for a little while a few months ago.
