    Just in time for April showers, Swagbucks has announced a “Three Pour All” promotion where you can get a 300 SB Bonus ($3) just for signing up and earning your first 300 SB. Here’s how to earn your 300 SB in an hour:

    • Join Swagbucks for free through this link
    • Watch a few short clips from Top Sports Headlines, World New Headlines, cooking shows, and the Latest from TMZ and earn 26 SB
    • Take a 5 minute survey for 60 SB and a 13 minute survey for 100 SB. Even if you get disqualified, you get paid up to five times for a total of 5 SB
    • Print a $1 off Flintstone’s Vitamin coupon and earn 25 SB
    • Enter an AARP Sweepstakes and earn 40 SB
    • Click through entertainment-focused web content with NCrave for 20 minutes and earn 20 SB
    • Install the Hulu App on your phone and earn 24 SB

    That’s 300 SB (worth $3 on its own!), plus you’ll get a 300 SB (another $3!) bonus for your efforts!

    Already a Swagbucks member? Get your own 300 SB bonus by referring a friend to Swagbucks between April 4 and April 30, and help your friend earn 300 SB by the end of April – then you and your friend will each get a 300 SB bonus! (300 SB bonuses will be credited by May 5.)

    Plan Your Summer Vacation with Swagbucks

    It’s that time of year when my friends and I start talking about summer. Most of our conversations naturally focus on summer camps for the kids, but we also talk about trips we are going to (or would like to) take with our families. Last year, we went to Japan, so this year, we’ll make it a small trip if we go anywhere at all.

    Are you planning on traveling this summer? If so, let Swagbucks help you save. Through tomorrow, 4/10, you’ll earn Cash Back plus a 100 SB Bonus when you purchase American Airlines, Hotels.com, Jiffy Lube, Celebrity Cruises, Kmart, or Gap Options Gift Cards from MyGiftCardsPlus!*

    If you’re new to Swagbucks, find out why it’s one of my favorite ways to earn free money, and thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

    *Cash Back is paid in the form of SB points good for popular gift cards like Amazon or PayPal cash. SB Bonus Offer applies to one purchase per gift card listed above (American Airlines, Hotels.com, Jiffy Lube, Celebrity Cruises, Kmart, or Gap Options). Offer expires at 11:59pm PT on April 10, 2016. Your SB will credit when your electronic gift card is delivered.

    Swagbucks: My GiftCardsPlus Easter Sale

    MyGiftCardsPlus is a relatively new way to earn on Swagbucks, so I haven’t personally tried it yet, but since you get SB when you buy new gift cards, it sounds awesome! And right now, they have a special offer running through Sunday, March 27: Earn your “regular” SB plus Bonus SB when you spend $50 or more on select gift cards, including Lowe’s, Gap, Baby Gap, eBay, Game Stop, The Home Depot, Build-A-Bear, and Toys R Us!*

    The more you spend, the more you earn!

    Spend $50 and get a 100 SB Bonus
    Spend $75 and get a 125 SB Bonus
    Spend $100 and get a 150 SB Bonus

    Stack your deals for maximum SB: For example, if you shop at GAP, start by buying a $50 Gap gift card at MyGiftCardsPlus and get 7.5% back on your purchase in SB, plus a 100 SB Bonus for buying a $50 gift card. (It’s like getting 9.4% back!) Shop at Gap.com through Swagbucks and get another 8% back in SB!

    Enjoy Spring Break with Swagbucks + Get a 100 SB Bonus with Swago

    It’s official! My kids are out of school on Spring Break … although our plans consist of their sports and school projects (these days off are our chance to get those projects done!).

    But I do know a lot of people who are heading out of town, and based on the infographic below from Swagbucks, they’re not alone:


    My social circle breaks the mold, though, because most people I know are headed to Arizona to watch some spring training games. However, I do have one friend who’s already in Japan, and another who’s going to the most popular destination, Florida.

    Swagbucks would love to help you get away – you can save money on planning your trip by going to Expedia through Swagbucks and getting 8% cash back, and as always, you can earn free money by using Swagbucks!

    In fact, you can earn a 100 SB bonus through the latest round of Swago, which is a fun Bingo-like game that takes you through every aspect of Swagbucks. Fill out the whole board and get a 100 SB bonus! You can pre-register now, and start completing squares at 12am PT on Monday, March 21. This round of Swago ends on Monday, March 28, so make sure to submit your completed board by then. You can only submit your board once, so don’t jump the gun and submit for a single row if you think you can fill out the entire board!
