  • My Favorite Ways to Earn Swag Bucks

    Search & WinI’ve said many times that Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn free money, but I haven’t talked about them much lately except to let you know about the latest goings-on there. So I thought it was high time to share my favorite ways to earn Swag Bucks – hopefully this will help you earn those Amazon gift cards and other fabulous prizes faster!

    Searching – This is the original way to earn Swag Bucks, and probably the most obvious and popular. I’m just throwing it out there, since I recommend using Swag Bucks as your default search engine.

    Swagbucks TVSBTV has been around for a while, and has videos on a wide range of topics. There’s an SBTV meter at the top right that fills up as you watch videos, and you get 3 Swag Bucks every time it gets to 100%. In the last few months, I’ve become an avid SBTV watcher, leaving it on in the background pretty much all the time. It’s a super easy way to get Swag Bucks, especially if you’re near your computer as much I am.

    Take the Daily Poll – It takes less than a minute to vote, and you get one Swag Buck. Do it every day for a year and you’ll have 365 Swag Bucks – almost what you need to get a $5 Amazon gift card!

    Install the Swagbucks toolbar – You’ll get one daily Swag Buck when you open your browser or log in to Swagbucks. I installed the toolbar in a browser I use daily but briefly, since I don’t like crowding the top of my browser with lots of different things.

    Swag Codes – I’m always on the lookout for Swag Codes, which are like a little surprise gift. If I see one that’s live, I’ll let you know on the CFO Facebook page, and often via Twitter as well. If you’re wondering if there’s a live Swag Code, check the Swagbucks widget in the right sidebar at Chief Family Officer – it will flash “Code Alert” at the top of the widget when there’s a live code. Click on the flashing words and it will tell you where to find the code.

    Daily deal portal – Unfortunately, I often forget to buy my daily deals through Swagbucks, but doing so is one way to get a lot of Swag Bucks at once. So if you’re planning to buy a daily deal, and especially if there’s no cash back portal to go through, definitely check Swagbucks before making your purchase.

    Printable coupons – Swagbucks is one of the many Coupons.com affiliates, so you can print your coupons through their Coupons page and get 10 Swag Bucks per redeemed coupon. It does take many weeks to get your Swag Bucks, but some Swag Bucks are better than none!

    Happy Swagging! And thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!
