Let’s Talk About Swagbucks! How to Redeem Them.

As you know Fridays are mega swagbuck days. This means that you can typically win more Swagbucks doing searches then normal. I don’t see a huge difference, but some people swear by Fridays! I am slow and steady, I get my 70 a day that I shoot for!

Here are the ways I get the most Swagbucks:

  • I downloaded and use their tool bar, it also gives me free Swagbucks
  • I use Swagbucks FIRST instead of Google, then I “google”!

Now that it is July, I start cashing in my Swagbucks slowly so that I have them for Christmas. Here are some things to keep in mind.

  • You can only “cash in” 2 rewards a day. So you don’t want to wait until the end of November, you wont be able to cash them all in for Christmas (unless you do 1 BIG gift card)
  • You can only get 5 of the same prizes or gift cards a month.
  • They “deposit” the Gift cards into your account 2x a month. If I cash in some Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon gift card today, I might not be able to use them today. They are delivered on the 1st and 15th of the month.
  • Then I just get the code off the Amazon gift cards I get, then copy them to my Amazon account and my money is there for me to use.

I figure if I strive for my 70 a day, then I will have about $300 for Christmas, plus I signed up my Mom and a couple friends this year and so I should have about $425-$450. That takes a HUGE bite out of my Christmas!

* If you are new they start you off with 30 Swagbucks.

The key is after you sign up, sign up a few friends. You can go to the Swagbucks page and on the left side it says “invite friends” follow the directions from there!

** You DO NOT have to only get Amazon gift cards, there are 1,000’s of prizes!!! I use this as part of my Christmas fund, so I have only ever gotten Amazon cards!

    Thanks for the tips, I would have waited until December to cash them all in. I love Swagbucks, esp when I can use them toward my Christmas spending fund!

    i’ve had no luck with swagbucks! I’ve gotten 3 referrals, and haven’t received points for them, i don’t get points for my surveys, AND my “instantly confirms” deals never work.

    any tips?

    I have started Swagbucks too, and have hardly any points. What am I doing wrong? What are some more tips for getting LOTS!!! Thanks.

    I am not having any luck with swagbucks either. I do the same do all my searches there then hit google but only have enough for one $5 card from Amazon and that will not help out that much. I would like more hints to.

    Also how do you sign up friends. I click on the sign up friends link and then it wants to like to another account. Is there not a way to just entere an email address and sign up a friend?

    I started a couple of weeks ago and I have 900 points. I read some of the tips from the top people and there was an interesting idea. Find items that Swagbucks gives away (like a certain game or concert tickets). Find a message board or online forum for fans of that product and mention that you can get the product free from Swagbucks and include your link. Be sure to follow the spam guidelines of the site. I tried it on two sites and I specified that I was not spamming, I was just providing information to people of similar taste. I don’t have much free time to post messages on sites like that though!

    Hi Tiffany,

    I have a question for you. My husband and I each have our own computers in our home. Since I partcicipate in Swagbucks on my computer, can he have his own account on his?

    Thank you

      I believe the terms are one account per household. If you have more then one person at your house/address they want you to share an account. I think it may be listed in there FAQ. Kind of a bummer since I have 3 other adults in my house.
