I earned $25 in Amazon Gifts Cards in 9 days

I was able to earn five $5 Amazon Gift Cards, two of those were in the same day! I completed lots of special offers and tasks and was able to convince a few more friends to sign up so I got some referral swag bucks too. But the majority of them were on my own. More details on how I earned them will be coming to this site too, as I want to share the knowledge and joy!

Graphical Breakdown of Which Tasks Really 'Pay'

I signed up for Swag Bucks in November 2010 and earned 32 Swag Bucks my first day. Then I stopped using it. I never touched it again until January 19th, 2011.  As I write this post, it has now been 14 weeks and to date, I have earned 5,003 Swag Bucks and have redeemed for 11 $5 Amazon gift cards and am working towards my 12th.

I bought over 200 diapers for $4.18 using Amazon gift cards earned through Swag Bucks

I just wanted to show you how I have been using my Amazon gift cards I got from redeeming my Swag Bucks. With the Amazon Mom and Subscribe & Save discounts Amazon offers, I used 4 gift cards and got a case of 208 diapers for $4.18!  You can click on the image to enlarge it and see the details.

Get 50 Swag Bucks for Your Birthday

I forgot all about this until about two weeks ago, I received an email in my inbox letting me know I received 50 Swag Bucks for my birthday. I checked my Swag Bucks account and lo and behold, I had 50 additional Swag Bucks. 

How I earned $40

I wrote an article for Associated Content about how I earned 8 Amazon gift cards in 2 months using Swag Bucks. It gives a breakdown of how many days it took me to earn each gift card.

NOSOs Now Worth 2 Points a Day!

There are four ways to earn 4 Swag Bucks easily each day. One of those is by visiting the "No Obligation Special Offers" (or NOSO) page. Previously you could earn a Swag Buck just by visiting the page, and skipping all of the offers. After skippping the last offer you get a Swag Buck. As of today, you earn 2 Swag Bucks! After skipping the last offer, you have to complete a small puzzle or CAPTCHA (one of those boxes where you have to type the word you see and hit submit), and voila, two Swag Bucks.

I just tried it for the first time and it's just as quick and easy as before.

The page detailing how to earn the daily Swag Bucks has now been updated to "Five Guaranteed Swag Bucks Daily".  :)

I Got 100 Swag Bucks in One Day

While home yesterday (yahoo for snow days!), I set a mini-goal to earn 100 swagbucks in one day. I was able to meet and exceed that.  The following is a general overview of how I was easily able to earn 100 swagbucks:
  • 4 Daily Swag Bucks
  • Referral (I earned 17 sb from just 2 searches performed by just one referral)
  • Searching the web
  • 2 Special Offers (one for 7 sb, one was to simply watch a short video for 2 sb)
  • Swagbucks TV (since I was home, I was able to play lots of videos)
