    There are lots of deals this holiday weekend, and here’s another one: You can earn up to 200 Bonus SB when you purchase gift cards from featured retailers through Swagbucks and MyGiftCardsPlus*:

    • Buy 1 $50 Gift Card and get a 50 SB Bonus

    *Offer expires at 11:59pm PT on May 30, 2016. Your SB will credit when your electronic gift card is delivered. Cash back will be paid in the form of SB. Each individual Gift Card purchased must have a value of $50 or more to qualify for a SB bonus. Each qualifying Gift Card purchase must be purchased from a unique retailer in order to receive the 100 SB Bonus and 200 SB Bonus (ex. If you buy two $50+ Gift Cards to one featured retailer you will ONLY receive a 50 SB Bonus; if you buy two $50+ Gift Cards, each from a different feature retailer, you will receive the corresponding SB Bonus). You will not be eligible to receive a SB bonus if you stack smaller denomination Gift Cards (ex. 2 Gift Cards of $25). Gift Cards must be purchased in one transaction to qualify for a SB Bonus.
