This giveaway has now ended. Congratulations to Kat/kizzie2012 on winning 10,000 SB, equivalent of $100 for a gift card of choice!
This Fall, Swagbucks is offering an awesome giveaway to BadgeHungry readers. If you missed my introductory Swagbucks post, here’s the gist: it’s a great way to earn free gift cards. And the PayPal gift cards from Swagbucks are deposited straight into your PayPal account, which you can use to purchase Gems at Pogo. It’s like getting free Pogo Gems — and a $100 PayPal Gift Card would get you over 1600 Pogo Gems!
$100 Gift Card Giveaway
Any Swagbucks member who signs up in October or November 2014 through the BadgeHungry Swagbucks referral link and earns at least 100 points called SB by November 30th will be automatically entered into a drawing for a $100 Gift Card, awarded as 10,000 free SB which can be used for any gift card in the Swagbucks Reward Store.
Swagbucks will choose the winner from eligible accounts and they will let me know on or around December 1st so I can announce the winner in the last comment below. Good luck!
A lot of you already signed up after the introductory post in October, so you’ll just need to make sure you’ve earned 100 SB before November ends. Just skip down a few paragraphs for some tips that will get you well on your way.
New to Swagbucks?
To get started, visit Swagbucks.com and either log in with Facebook or create an account. As a bonus in November, when you’re signing up, click the “I have a sign up code (optional)” link and enter the sign up code badgehungry into the box. You’ll get 70 bonus SB to get started — this won’t count toward your 100 SB to be eligible for the giveaway, but it’s a little something to get you on your way your first gift card.
Once you’re signed up, check out the earning tips below. You can also check out this post which details a few really easy ways to get your 100 SB, and the comments on the post are full of helpful tips for newcomers.
Earn Quick & Easy SB
Here’s a quick way to get at least 25-30 SB today: under “Discover” on the Swagbucks.com top menu, select “Read”. You can page through the book samples for a few SB each. When I did it for October, I got 5 SB for each book plus later I got 2 SB for watching a 15-second trailer, for a total of 32 SB. New books are available once a month, usually around the first week of the month.
If you do your internet searches using the Swagbucks search engine (top menu, Search), every once in a while Swagbucks will randomly award you SB at the top of your search results.
And here are three quick daily things you can do to earn easy SB that will only take a few minutes of your time:
• do the Daily Poll (1 SB – <1 minute)
• do the NOSO (2 SB - <1 minute)
• look at your Swagbucks home page for quick offers you can do for easy SB (time & SB vary)
Doing these things daily will add up over time and before you know it you'll be on your way to your first Gift Card reward. This is definitely a marathon, not a sprint. Stick with it and be sure to let us know when you've cashed in your first set of SB.
