Swaggeriffic Sunday!

Welcome to Swaggeriffic Sunday! I'm finally back and ready to start catching up with my swagbucks! This was truly my favorite site of 2010 and I want everyone to get involved and join in so you can see how awesome it really is! My 2010 plan was to use my swagbucks to get Amazon gift cards and buy Christmas gifts. Luckily I was blessed with a gift card to Amazon and totally shopped all those awesome sales and only used a few of my Swagbucks. My other plan was to save up my gift cards and get a Kindle but I got one of those for my birthday. So NOW my plan is to save up the cards and actually buy birthday gifts with them for the family. If you're new here Swagerriffic Sunday is where I dedicate a little time to talking about Swagbucks and how easy it is to earn some "bucks" and get some great prizes.

A little about Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a search engine sponsored by google. It is used the same way as any other search engine, however, here is the cool part. You will occasionally, you never know when, win what is called Swagbucks when you search. Swagbucks look like this:

They come in all kinds of crazy denominations: anywhere from 1- 1000 or more! You collect those swagbucks and they can be used to redeem awesome prizes from the swagstore. It only takes 450 swagbucks to get a $5 Amazon Gift Card but there are plenty of other prizes you can choose from including paypal cards and starbucks cards and even iPods!

So I like to start each week with my previous weeks total of swagbucks and then update with today's total. I don't remember how many points I had last week and it's been a long time since I've really been on the computer and had a chance to "search" so I'm going to start fresh! This week I have 15863 swagbucks. Next week I will update you on my new total and tell you how many points I earned! 

How do you earn swagbucks? Well it's really quite simple. First I suggest you download the toolbar. You can go HERE to download it and it looks like this:

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture. You use it just like any other search engine. Once you've put in your key word and hit "Go" it will bring up a list similar to a google search. However, sometimes you will get lucky and see that magic swagbuck like the one pictured above. Those points will automatically go into your account! How simple is that?!? I would suggest searching for anything and everything even if you do know the address. If you search too often the swag gods will let you know you need to slow down. So far that's never happened to me! 

You can also download a swidget HERE or use mine at the bottom of my page. If you click on code it will tell you if a code is active at that time. A code is an easy way to earn swagbucks. You just copy the code, go to the Swagbucks homepage and enter it! Now many of these codes are time sensitive so try to enter them as quickly as you can. They can be found on the swidget, on twitter, on Facebook or even on the toolbar under "From TSG". I've really been trying to be on the lookout for codes and trying to post hints and reminders on my Facebook page. I hope that will help! Feel free to share any hints or codes when you see them! Just remember that you cannot legally share the EXACT CODE! Only hints! 

Finally  there's the Daily Deals. Now we all know how much I love daily deals like Jasmere and Mini Bargainz and my latest groupon. Well this is just like those sites. The Daily Deals are essentially local shopping deals that save you money and can earn you Swag Bucks instantly - check it out HERE! (I just looked and you can get anywhere from 280- 600 swagbucks for purchasing a deal!)

 BUT that's not all...

Monday, February 28th is Swagbucks birthday! Yes, we all love birthdays and we all love birthday gifts. So if you sign up before February 28 at 11:59EST and use the code BirthdayTime you will get 35 extra swagbucks for signing up! Yes instead of 35, you will get 65 swagbucks! (Remember this is for new members only!) Can you say awesome?!? And along with that you might want to be on the lookout on Monday for all the awesome Swagbuck birthday celebration activities including:

- A Swag Code Extravaganza - at least 5 different codes throughout the day, and the opportunity to earn TONS of Swag Bucks with them

- The redesign of the Swagbucks Blog, which will include a new blogroll section especially to promote our bloggers, meaning the potential opportunity to gain a LOT of exposure to our community

- A site feature that will greatly enhance the Friend feature on our site,

- A new product that will redefine the way Search is used.

Finally, if you haven't signed up for Swagbucks, what are you waiting for. It's really simple to sign up! Just go HERE and fill out the form like the one pictured above! Remember you'll get 65 swagbucks just for joining before 11:59EST on Monday I mean we all want free stuff, right?! And remember to check my Facebook page often for swag code reminders and to check back here on Sundays for updates and ways to earn more swagbucks!
