Swag Bucks 101: Ways to Earn & How to Redeem

August 1, 2011

What’s the BIG deal about Swag Bucks? Well, let me get started! Swag Bucks is basically an online search engine that rewards you with “virtual dollars” just for simply searching the web the way you would normally. Those Swag Bucks go into your online account and can be redeemed for gift cards to a variety of places like Amazon and Starbucks (my favorite) or for prizes.

Since there are several ways you can earn Swag Bucks and it can be a little confusing, I have decided to break down the 5 main ways to earn Swag Bucks.


Here are 5 ways to earn Swag Bucks:

1. Search! Search the internet like you would normally either from the Swag Bucks Page or by using the Swag Bucks Toolbar! The best way to do this is by downloading the FREE Swag Bucks Toolbar and using that to search the internet instead of using your Google or Yahoo search engine. You will randomly earn Swag Bucks from your searches and a box will come up letting you know you have earned them. It’s that simple!

2. Get Swag Bucks in the Toolbar! Every day you will get 1 Swag Buck just for opening your browser window (that’s 365 FREE Swag Bucks per year). You will also randomly get codes from TSG (The Swag Guy) in your messages in the toolbar. Just click on those message alerts to get your Swag Bucks.

3. Find Swag Codes! The TSG and TSGal (The Swag Guy and Girl) are actually very generous in giving out FREE Swag Codes! They post them randomly on the Swag BucksBlogSwag Bucks Facebook Page, or the Swag Bucks Twitter Page. When you find thosecodes all you have to do is simply copy and paste them into the Swag Bucks Gimmie Box on your My Account Page.

4. Daily Polls! Every day Swag Bucks does a new poll. Basically it’s just random questions and you have to do is Vote on the Swag Bucks Daily Poll to earn 1 Swag Buck. There is a new poll everyday, so potentially you can earn 365 Swag Bucks per year doing just that!

5. Refer Friends & Family! Tell everyone you know about Swag Bucks and how they can start earning FREE stuff too! When someone signs up with your referral link and wins while searching, you win too! You earn one Swag Buck for every Swag Buck they earn up to 1,000. That can add up really fast! You can also add a Swag Bucks Swidget or Swag Bucks Banners to your Facebook page or blog to promote Swag Bucks. These both have your unique referral code and you will receive credit for every person who signs up from clicking on those!



Now that I have Swag Bucks what do I do with them?

You can redeem your Swag Bucks in the Swag Store for gift cards and prizes! All you have to do is select your prize and it will either be mailed to you or you will receive an electronic gift card (a code) that you use to pay for stuff online at the retailer you chose to get your gift card from.
