  • Swagbucks Update: nCrave SWAGO

    Swagbucks is back with a new edition of SWAGO, which is their version of Bingo – and a chance to earn bonus SB! You get squares on your SWAGO board when you complete tasks, but nCrave SWAGO is a little different because all of the squares are nCrave activities.

    Here’s what you need to know:

    • Starting tomorrow (9/26) at 1pm PT, head to your nCrave SWAGO board and click “Join.”
    • nCrave SWAGO will end on Thursday (9/29) at 11:59pm PT.
    • Each square on your nCrave Swago Board will contain an nCrave activity to complete. Once you complete the nCrave activity in a particular square the square will change color, signifying the nCrave activity is complete.
    • Note the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your nCrave Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and SB bonus value.
    • Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, but you can only submit ONE pattern each day (so choose wisely!).
    • Each day you will have a NEW nCrave Swago Board. It will appear at 12:01am PT. This means that you must submit your nCrave Swago Board before 12:00am PT each day to claim your SB bonus. (Yes, you can get FOUR bonuses!)

    Swagbucks Update: Labor Day Sale

    Happy Labor Day (weekend)! Our school district observes California’s admission to the United States tomorrow, even though the actual holiday isn’t until next Friday, September 9. I think I might actually prefer two three-day weekends in a row instead of one four-day weekend, but as you might imagine, my kids are rather excited that there’s no school tomorrow or Monday. 😀

    Swagbucks is celebrating this weekend too. They’re running a big Labor Day Sale on their site because you work hard all year and deserve to put some cash back in your wallet while you’re shopping.

    They are offering Double Cash Back or more (awarded in the form of points called SB) when you shop this Labor Day Weekend through their site at stores including:

    • Walmart
    • eBay
    • Target
    • Old Navy
    • Macy’s
    • Gap
    • JCPenney
    • The Home Depot
    • Lowe’s
    • Bed Bath & Beyond
    • Groupon
    • Living Social

    Hot Swagbucks Updates: Three for All Bonus + Earn More SB with Back to School Shopping, nCrave, and Swago

    You probably already know about Swagbucks, which is one my favorite ways to earn free money online, but did you know they have some bonus offers right now?

    With the latest edition of Three for All, new Swagbucks members get a bonus 300 SB when you join Swagbucks and earn 300 SB by the end of August. Each 300 SB is worth a $3 gift card to the store of your choice (includes Paypal too!). If you’re already a Swagbucks member, you can get a bonus 300 SB for yourself when you refer a friend to Swagbucks, and that friend earns 300 SB before the end of the month. (Yes, you both get 300 bonus SB! Bonuses will be credited by September 6.)

    Here are a few ideas to quickly earn your first 300 SB:

    • Watch a few short clips from Top Sports Headlines, World New Headlines, cooking shows, and the Latest from TMZ – earn 26 SB
    • Take a 5 minute survey for 60 SB and a 13 minute survey for 100 SB. Even if you are disqualified from a survey, you get paid up to five times for a total of 5 SB
    • Print a $1 off Flintstone’s Vitamin Coupon – earn 25 SB
    • Join Zulilly’s free mailing list – earn 50 SB

    • Install the Hulu App on your phone – earn 24 SB

    Here’s another way to earn SB: Through September 1, Swagbucks is offering double cash back in the form of points called SB when you shop through them for your back to school essentials. Even better, if you join Swagbucks through this link and spend at least $25 at the stores listed below through Swagbucks, you’ll earn a 500 SB bonus – that’s worth a FREE $5 gift card!

    • Target – Up to 2 SB per $1
    • eBay – Up to 2 SB per $1

    Do you like to watch videos online? If so, you should get paid for it! Swagbucks works with nCrave to bring you tech and celeb news, upcoming movie trailers, DIYs, make up tutorials and so much more. Check out their video playlists and videos to entertain yourself for hours and earn 2 SB for every 10 videos you watch. You can watch on the Swagbucks website, via the Swagbutton web extension, or on the go with the SBTV mobile app. It’s a really easy way to rack up SB for the Three for All bonus mentioned above!
