    Swagbucks Search & Learn: Mind, Body, Spirit

    Swagbucks knows that better health is at the top of most people’s New Year’s resolutions. After all, improving the state of your mind, body, and spirit is integral to succeeding in every facet of life. That’s why this month’s Search & Learn is focusing on Mind, Body, Spirit.

    If you haven’t previously participated in a Swagbucks Search & Learn, here’s how it works:

    1. Go to the Search & Learn page each day from January 4th – January 8th.

    2. Each day Swagbucks will have 5 new questions related to one of the following categories:

    Health Nuts
    Yogis
    Meditation Dedication
    Gym Rats
    Couch Potatoes

    3. You can either click on the category card OR search from your defaulted Swagbucks Search Engine to find the correct answer. (When you use Swagbucks Search as your defaulted search engine during this promotion, you will be entered up to 5 times per day into a drawing to win a Grand Prize of $500 or one of twenty Runner Up Prizes of $5.*)

    4. Once you find the answers to all 5 questions, click on the button that says Win 500 SB on the Search & Learn page and complete that day’s survey.

    5. Each correct answer (up to 5 each day) will enter you into a drawing to win one of 5 prizes of $5!*

    6. Swagbucks will announce the 5 winners the following day at 10am PT (Friday’s winners will be announced the following Monday).

    *All winnings will be paid out in SB. Winners of the Grand Prize and Runner Up Prizes will be announced on Friday, January 15. Official rules are here.

    Good luck!

    Earn Triple Cash Back from Swagbucks

    I pretty much never shop online without going through a cash back site to save a few extra dollars, and right now, Swagbucks is doubling their rewards for the entire holiday season.

    But wait! On Black Friday (starting at 8pm ET on November 26) and Cyber Monday (November 30), they are offering Triple Cash Back at a huge range of featured online stores, including Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble, and more, plus a wide range of specialty businesses so you can find the perfect gifts. All you have to do is click on the retailer’s link on Swagbucks.com and shop from there.

    The rewards Swagbucks offer differ across retailers, so expect anything from 3% to 24% cash back. As always, with the SB you earn on your purchases, you can get Visa cash cards, Pay Pal deposits, or your choice of gift card from retailers like Amazon and iTunes.

    If you prefer waiting in the freezing cold lines on Black Friday, you can still earn extra SB with the Swagbucks Mobile App. For every 25 SB you earn through the Mobile App on Black Friday, you’ll get an entry into a drawing for $500 or 1 of 20 prizes for $100! With all these deals you can’t lose, and hopefully you can save that little extra to stretch your holiday budget as far as it needs to go this year.
