  • Swagbucks Tip: Swag Code Extravaganzas

    Search & WinMy favorite way to earn free money online is Swagbucks, which is my primary search engine. But I earn Swag Bucks in other ways, and one of my favorites happened yesterday in the form of a Swag Code Extravaganza. There seems to be a Swag Code Extravaganza every month or two, during which Swagbucks releases Swag Codes throughout the day. If you can get all of the codes released that day, you’re usually looking at an extra 75-100 Swag Bucks, sometimes more. (You enter codes in the box at the top right of the homepage.)

    The first Swag Code of an Extravaganza is usually released in the morning via Twitter or Facebook. Remaining codes are released via the blog, toolbar, chat bar, Swidget, and other means. If I’m around my computer and I see a live code, I’ll give you a heads up via the CFO Facebook page and Twitter feed. You can also keep an eye for code alerts on the Swidget in the right sidebar on the CFO homepage, but it hasn’t been totally reliable lately.

    At the end of the day, there’s a “big” code with the highest value of the day. Yesterday’s big code, for instance, was worth 20 Swag Bucks. The final code is usually dependent on the codes that came before it. If you managed to get all or most of the earlier codes, you can see what they were by hovering over your name at the top right of any Swagbucks page and clicking on the “My Swag Bucks” link, then clicking on the “Ledger” tab. Once that loads, select “Swag Codes” from the drop-down menu, and apply the day’s date. You should see all of the codes you entered earlier in the day, listed in reverse chronological order.

    If you are missing any codes, the best place to go is the Swagbucks Facebook page, and read the posts by others. There are usually lots of questions and answers about the previous codes – enough to be able to figure out what you’re missing.

    Swag Codes can you help you accumulate Swag Bucks much faster – and you’ll have the 450 you need for a $5 Amazon gift card before you know it!
