  • Happy 2nd Birthday, Swag Bucks! (Plus a Bonus Code for New Swaggernauts)

    Search & WinI’ve mentioned Swag Bucks many times before, and that’s because it’s an incredibly easy way to earn free money. If you make Swag Bucks your default search engine, you’ll earn some free gift cards with zero extra effort. For more details on how Swag Bucks works, read my last explanation.

    Today, Swag Bucks is celebrating its second birthday, but they’re giving us the gifts in the form of Swag Codes. A Swag Code is a case sensitive code that you enter (either on the homepage or the My Account page) that gives you extra Swag Bucks. And today, according to The Swag Guy (“TSG”), there will be lots of codes throughout Swag Nation.

    That means you’ll want to keep an eye on the following:

    Swag Bucks Blog (here’s their RSS feed, but it doesn’t always update in time for codes with a short lifespan)

    Swag Bucks Facebook Fan Page

    Swag Bucks Twitter Feed (you can also subscribe to their Twitter feed via RSS, but again, it doesn’t always update in a timely fashion)

    Swag Bucks Toolbar (you have to be logged in on the toolbar to see TSG’s messages)

    the Swidget (you can find a Swidget right here at CFO in the left sidebar)

    Also, you’ll want to make sure you’re signed up for the Swag Bucks newsletter, because it always contains a code at the end and there’s a new one coming out tomorrow. You can sign up for the newsletter by clicking on the sign up link in the left menu on the homepage.

    There’s some huge news at Swag Bucks too: They’ve multiplied everything by 10. That means that if you had 100 Swag Bucks before, you now have 1000. The price for prizes has been multiplied by 10, but everything is proportionally the same. (For instance, the $5 Amazon gift card is now 450 Swag Bucks.) You can read more about the change here.

    If you’re new to Swag Bucks, there’s no better time to join: use code CFOSWAG (case sensitive) to get 60 bonus Swag Bucks when you join using my referral link (instead of the usual 30). The bonus code expires at 6 a.m. on March 6 4.

    To everyone who’s joined through my referral link, thank you! I really appreciate the support :D

      I tried to referral link twice, but can not get it to work. May be my internet connection?

      @ParisGirl – The site's been down a lot, I think they've got some kinks to work out. It seems to be working better now, so it should go through now. Thank you so much!
