Swaggeriffic Sunday!

Welcome to Swaggeriffic Sunday!

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. Last week I have 17049 swagbucks. I just checked and I have 17198. Only149 swagbucks this week. =(We had family in town so I wasn't searching or on the computer as much as normal but that's okay. AND here's an update for ya! Due to there being a second earthquake in Japan, Swagbucks is still accepting donations. Did you donate? I did. And they are also still offering the 50 extra swagbucks for joining. Read below to find details!

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". 

If you're a facebook fan of mine you will notice that I try to post a Swagbuck Alert wheverr there is a new code out. The swagbuck's Facebook page frequently posts codes and I will put up a hint whenever I see them! So if you're not a fan of mine I would suggest you go HERE to become one and go to Swagbuck's page and like them too! Feel free to share any hints or codes when you see them on my facebook page too! We all appreciate the help! 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!)

Remember how I said I have a deal for those of you who would like to become swaggernauts!?! Well, here it is! Any person who signs up for a new swagbucks account will get an extra 50 swagbucks on top of the normal 30 swagbucks you get for registering! Just use the code: HelpJapan when you register.  This code is active now and expires at 11am PDT on Monday, May 2. So go sign up now! 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!
