    Get free gift cards from Swagbucks!

    I’ve been a member of Swagbucks for over five years now, and I rave about them all of the time … but I’ve never seen a promotion this generous before!

    All you have to do is join Swagbucks using my referral link between now and Saturday, December 21, 2013, and earn 1,500 Swag Bucks before January 1, 2014 … do that and you’ll get an automatic bonus of 500 Swag Bucks! {That’s like getting a FREE $5 gift card to the store of your choice! Note that it may take up to 14 business days after you’ve hit the 1,500 SB mark for your bonus to credit.}

    You can earn your 1,500 Swag Bucks any way you want – I recommend starting here for some easy daily ways to earn Swag Bucks, and reading this post to see how I earned over 1,000 Swag Bucks in one day. {I’ve done it a couple more times since then too!}

    As I mentioned before, I’ve already made over a thousand dollars through Swagbucks this year alone, so it’s easy to see why Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn FREE money.

    Plus, right now, Swagbucks is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky CFO reader who joins/joined Swagbucks using my referral link and earns at least 50 Swag Bucks in total from any combination of Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer or Discover between Oct. 28 and Nov. 29!

    If you’re new to Swagbucks and would like to enter the giveaway, start by signing up here and use the code CFO70SB for a bonus 70 Swag Bucks to start. To redeem the code, be sure to click on “I have a signup code” when registering. Everyone gets 30 Swag Bucks upon registration, so you’ll have a total of 100 Swag Bucks just for signing up, which puts you well on your way to the 450 Swag Bucks you need to redeem for a $5 Amazon gift card! {These registration Swag Bucks do not count toward the 1500 you need for the bonus, but it’s still free money!}

    Happy Swagging!

    Earn With Swagbucks: How I earn 50 – 100+ Swag Bucks in less than 2 hours every day

    Get free gift cards from Swagbucks!

    As I mentioned before, I’ve already made over a thousand dollars through Swagbucks this year, so it’s easy to see why Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn FREE money.

    Right now, Swagbucks is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky CFO reader who joins/joined Swagbucks using referral link and earns at least 50 Swag Bucks in total from any combination of Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer or Discover between Oct. 28 and Nov. 29!

    It’s easy to earn 50 Swag Bucks, so I thought I’d share how I earn more than that every morning before I even take the kids to school:

    1. Open a browser that has the Swagbucks Toolbar installed. Total: 1 Swag Buck.

    2. Play 10 Games. Get 2 Swag Bucks per 2 games, up to 10 Swag Bucks per day. {Tip: you don’t have to finish each game; just get a feel for how long you have to play before you can click “Give Up” to get credit … though the Games can be very fun!} Total: 11 Swag Bucks.

    3. Peruse the NOSO offers. You can easily decline each one, then enter the captcha code for 2 Swag Bucks. Total: 13 Swag Bucks.

    4. Look through the Special Offers. There are often 1 Swag Buck offers under the Radium One tab, and I earned 12 Swag Bucks today through those. There are surveys under the Peanut Labs tab, though I didn’t qualify for any this morning. The Peanuts Lab and SponsorPay tabs sometimes have easy Swag Buck offers, too. Total after Special Offers: 30 Swag Bucks.

    5. Watch SBTV Mobile on an Android or iOS device using the free SBTV app. You get 2 Swag Bucks for every 5 videos, up to 50 Swag Bucks per day. These Swag Bucks are independent of the web-based SBTV, so you can earn an additional 50 Swag Bucks per day through the app. I manage to watch enough videos during my morning routine to earn about 20 Swag Bucks. Total: 50 Swag Bucks.

    6. Do the Encrave Activities. I watch some of these videos, and earn another 30 Swag Bucks in the morning. Total: 80 Swag Bucks.

    7. Do Surveys. One survey in the morning can get me past the Daily Goal, but I don’t always qualify. Today, I just received 2 consolation Swag Bucks. Total: 82 Swag Bucks.

    This is my daily Swag Bucks routine, and I accomplish it while also going through my email, Feedly, and drafting Morning Coffee. So I feel pretty productive getting all this done, especially since I usually hit the daily goal before I take the kids to school in the morning!

    Swagbucks Happenings: Bats vs. Cats, Mobile Swagbucks & More

    As you may know, Swagbucks is by far my favorite way to earn free money, and on Fridays, there’s an increased chance of winning big Swag Bucks (good luck!). Plus, don’t forget your daily Swag Buck for taking the Daily Poll, and another daily Swag Buck for using their toolbar.

    Bats vs. Cats Challenge

    Things are getting spooky at Swagbucks on Monday (10/21) with their Bats vs. Cats Halloween Team Challenge! Starting at noon Pacific Time, you can earn points for your (randomly assigned) team by winning Swag Bucks through Searching, playing Games, watching SBTV and SBTV Mobile (both iPhone and Android apps), completing Special Offers and taking Surveys (each activity earns a different point value).

    The team with the most points at the end of the challenge on Halloween wins. All members on the winning team that have contributed at least 1 point during the competition will get a bonus of 25 Swag Bucks, and all members of the second place team who contribute will get a 10 Swag Bucks bonus.

    Swagbucks Mobile App

    It seems like we’re all always on our phones these days, so Swagbucks is making it easier to be rewarded on the go with their new app for iOS and Android!

    You can easily download the app from either Google Play or the iTunes App Store. The app allows you to quickly navigate between earning categories including Answer, Discover, Search and Watch. You can also redeem rewards for the most popular gift cards and check your Swag Bucks balance on the app.

    Swagbucks mobile users get a special contest just for them – 20 Swaggernauts will win a $100 gift card! All you have to do to enter is have one of their apps installed and earn on mobile. {I’ve been very busy this week but I need to get on this so I’m entered to win!}

    If you’re new to Swagbucks, learn why it’s my favorite way to earn free money and join here. I regularly earn $100+ per month via Swagbucks, and most of my Swag Bucks don’t come from referrals. Rather, my Swag Bucks come through the simple tasks outlined here and here.
