  • Double Stuffed Swagbucks = Bonus Swag Bucks + Bonus Registration Code

    Swagbucks

    I’ve mentioned many times that I love Swagbucks, and want to thank you if you joined using my referral link! Hopefully, by now you know how to earn 200+ Swag Bucks per day, and how I earned 1,000+ Swag Bucks in one day. All of those Swag Bucks have translated into thousands of dollars in Amazon gift certificates, which in turn have saved my family lots of money on things we would have bought anyway.

    Double Stuffed Swagbucks

    One of the fabulous things about Swagbucks is that they’re always coming up with fun promotions for us Swaggernauts. So Monday (April 15) is going to be Double Stuffed Swagbucks Day! That means:

    • Codes worth a total of 30 Swag Bucks released throughout the day.
    • Double Entries for featured Swagstakes like the iPod, iPod Nano & the iPad Mini.
    • Double Swag Bucks in the following categories:
      • Shop & Earn (Hotels.com will be 3X SB where available!) (US, CAN & UK only)
      • The Daily Poll
      • NOSO
      • Toolbar
      • Games/Play
      • SBTV/Watch

    If you’re in the U.S., you probably already know that April 15 is also Tax Day, but thankfully Swagbucks is going to put the “fun” in “tax refund” – they’ve said that we should look for “fun surprises” while we’re searching for Swag Codes and “earning double wins on a game of Key Crusher.”

    Bonus Registration Code + Spring Into Action Bonus

    If you haven’t joined Swagbucks yet, now is a great time! Use the sign-up code DOUBLESTUFF70 for a bonus 70 Swag Bucks when you join here. Since all new users get 30 Swag Bucks upon sign up, you’ll start off with 100! That puts you well on your way to the 450 Swag Bucks you need to get a $5 Amazon gift certificate.

    Updated Review: Swagbucks.com + Registration Bonus + $25 Amazon GC Giveaway

    Earn free money with Swagbucks!

    I wrote my original review of Swagbucks.com way back in 2008! In the five years since, Swagbucks has become my absolute favorite way to earn free gift cards to Amazon and Starbucks. (They offer many more prize options, but those are my usuals.)

    Some things about Swagbucks haven’t changed since I first joined. The fundamental concept remains the same: Earn Swag Bucks and redeem them for fabulous prizes. And just like back in 2008, Swagbucks is super easy to use as your default search engine. I’ve installed their toolbars and extensions in Firefox and Chrome, both of which I use every day. Your searches are periodically rewarded with Swag Bucks, and even if you did nothing else to earn Swag Bucks, you should be able to accumulate enough for a $5 Amazon gift certificate in a month.

    But one thing that has changed is that there are many other ways to earn Swag Bucks now, and that means you can earn hundreds of dollars per month – it all depends on how much time and effort you are willing to put in. I’ve covered these other ways in the past, including my post from last summer on how to earn 200+ Swag Bucks per day, and an explanation of how I earned 1,000+ Swag Bucks in one day. The only thing that’s changed since then is my regular use of the Swagbucks iPhone app to earn 50 Swag Bucks each day watching SBTV Mobile.

    One way of earning that’s relatively new is the Shop & Earn portal, which works like other shopping portals like Ebates and Mr. Rebates – but instead of getting cash back, you get Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend. Right now, you can get 3X the Swag Bucks for purchases at Walmart, or 6 Swag Bucks per dollar spent. Plus, Swagbucks is offering a hot rebate: Snag a $5 Walmart Gift Card in the Rewards Store and make an eligible purchase at Walmart via Shop & Earn by March 31, and get a rebate of 50 Swag Bucks. Walmart Gift Cards from the Rewards Store can be used to purchase items via Shop & Earn, and you will receive the 3X Swag Bucks back even if the Walmart purchase was paid with gift card(s). What a deal!

    There’s never been a better time to join Swagbucks! New members get 70 additional bonus Swag Bucks when you join here and enter the code CFOBLOG70 – since all new users get 30 Swag Bucks upon sign up, you’ll start off with 100! That puts you well on your way to the 450 Swag Bucks you need to get a $5 Amazon gift certificate.

    WIN IT!

    And that’s not all! (I don’t mean to sound like an infomercial, but I’m that excited about Swagbucks!) Swagbucks is giving one lucky CFO reader a $25 Amazon gift certificate – and if you don’t win this week, you’ll get another chance next week.

    Celebrate Swagbucks’ 5th Birthday + Bonus Registration Code

    Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn free money online, and later this month, they’re celebrating their 5th birthday! I went back and looked to see that I joined just a few months after they started up, so I’ve been a member for most of those five years. And during those five years, I’ve earned thousands of free dollars in Amazon credit.

    Maybe the best thing about Swagbucks is that the money I’ve earned has been truly free. There are so many ways to earn Swag Bucks without spending a penny (though you can earn more if you want to spend a few bucks). Here’s my post from last summer on how to earn 200+ Swag Bucks per day, and an explanation of how I earned 1,000+ Swag Bucks in one day.

    One really fun way to earn Swag Bucks is through Swag Codes, and on Monday, February 25, Swagbucks is celebrating their birthday with a HUGE Swag Code Extravaganza. If you can get all of the codes, you’ll have an extra 135 Swag Bucks at the end of the day. I do my best to let you know about live codes on the CFO Facebook page, as well as the CFO Twitter feed. And you can check for live Swag codes via the Swagbucks Toolbar. Plus, there will be five $1,000 prizes and more earning opportunities and games. Get the full scoop here and be sure to RSVP here.

    If you’re new to Swagbucks, now is a great time to join because right now, new members get a whopping 90 additional bonus Swag Bucks when you join here and enter the code 5THBIRTHDAY – since all new users get 30 Swag Bucks upon sign up, you’ll start off with 120! That puts you well on your way to the 450 Swag Bucks you need to get a $5 Amazon gift certificate.
