Swagbucks Birthday -- SIGNUP BONUS!!!

SWAGBUCKS is 3 years old!!! Now is the perfect time to join Swagbucks if you are not already a member. If you join Swagbucks before midnight EST Monday Feb 28, 2011, you can use the Swagcode BirthdayTime when you register and receive a 35 swagbuck bonus in addition to the normal signup bonus of 30 swagbucks. So that is 65 Swagbucks just for signing up.

You don't need to spend much time on my blog to realize that I LOVE SWAGBUCKS!!! I find Swagbucks to be an absolutely wonderful way to earn some extras for your family. Extra what? Well, it can be gift cards, cash (in the form of paypal), or prizes.

Skeptical? When I first heard of Swagbucks, I was very skeptical. It sounded too good to be true. Earn gift cards and other prizes without paying a cent. But after doing some investigation on the net, I decided to give it a try. After all, nothing ventured nothing gained and it wasn't going to cost me anything other than a couple minutes of my time every day. So I decided to join and I am SO GLAD THAT I DID. I have earned hundreds of dollars worth of Amazon gift cards that I have used to purchase Christmas and Birthday presents. My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon gift card which is just 450 Swagbucks. You can earn up to 5 of these each month from Swagbucks (after 5 you have to choose a different prize or cash out the following month). Once I request my Amazon gift card prize, Swagbucks e-mails me the gift code which I load into my Amazon account. I can then save them on my Amazon account until I have enough to purchase the desired item. I purchased my hubby a Kindle (with 3G and wifi) for Christmas this way and have paid for many other birthday, Christmas presents this way as well as just ordinary household items for my family.

How do you earn Swagbucks? There are many ways -- some free and some which cost money. I always stick to the totally free options (by the way, did I mention that all Swagbuck prizes are shipped free). Some of the easiest ways to earn are:

  • Do your searches through Swagbucks and you will randomly receive swagbucks for the searches. I usually get 3 or 4 search wins per day.
  • Do the Daily Poll to earn 1 swagbucks
  • 50 swagbucks automatically on your birthday
  • Enter swagcodes when they are available(various amounts)
  • Do the NOSO (no obligation special offers) to earn 2 swagbucks daily
  • Watch video offers on the Swagbucks main page or Special Offers page for 1 to 3 swagbucks per offer.
  • Check the Trusted Surveys dashboard to earn 1 swagbucks daily (note that you don't have to actually complete any surveys to earn this). Complete surveys and earn more (sometimes as much as 100 swagbucks) for completing a survey.
  • Download and be logged into the Swagbucks toolbar for 1 swagbuck/day
  • Get a referral and earn swagbucks when your referral wins swagbucks for a search(up to 1000 swagbucks per referral)
  • A bunch more ways to earn

To join in the fun, use this Signup link or click on the "Search Earn Redeem" graphic below

When you get to the signup form don't forget to enter the BirthdayTime swagcode in the specified area(similar to the one shown below) to earn your 35 point additional signup bonus (valid only until midnight EST on Feb 28 2011).

I know this is a really long post....but I get excited when I talk about Swagbucks because it is so easy to earn free things on Swagbucks and since you can earn giftcards to places like Amazon your choice of prizes is huge.

2 Coupon Inserts for Sunday Feb 27 2011

Depending on your newspaper, you could find 2 inserts in your Sunday paper.

Smart Source


Use this just as a guideline because coupons and their values can vary by newspaper.

To save yourself some money every week, check on Saturday if your newstand carries early editions of your Sunday paper. They are often sold at half price. Of course, be sure to check before you purchase it to make sure that the paper contains the coupon inserts.
