Swago: Holiday Shopping Edition Is Back

by Katie on December 18, 2017

The holidays are here and the online rewards site, Swagbucks, has a smart and fun way for you to earn and save while you spend. Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago!

What is SWAGO you ask? It’s a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards.

If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly. Here’s what you’ll need to do to score your 300 SB Bonus (and don’t worry – you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern!):

  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, December 18th at 9 a.m. PT. Make sure you hit “Join” or you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square, the square will change color, signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible, so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right side of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value – up to 300 SB – enough for your first $3 gift card.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission; however, you can only submit one pattern, so choose wisely.
  • The game ends on Friday, December 22nd at 12 p.m. PT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends, you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Also, if you sign up through me this month, you’ll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the “Swag Ups” area of “My Account.”


Score Exclusive Swagbuster Deals

by Katie on November 27, 2017

Running now through December 3rd, the cashback shopping site Swagbucks is running a series of exclusive “Swagbuster” deals that offer increased cash back (in the form of SB points) at stores, when buying gifts cards, and big SB payouts when you discover offers from different companies.

You can take all of the points you earn from these deals and redeem them for gift cards from places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, or PayPal cash, helping you extend your holiday budget further!

The deals change every few hours, and you can keep track of what’s available by clicking here. You need a Swagbucks account to take advantage – fortunately it’s free and takes less than 30 seconds to sign up.

PLUS, if you sign up through me you’ll get a bonus 300 SB ($3) if you earn 300 SB before December 1st!


If you haven’t tried Swagbucks before, you can get a $3 bonus for signing up during November as part of their Three for Fall promotion. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $3 bonus! Here’s how:

  • Sign up using this link   
  • Earn 300 SB total before 12/1/17. You’ll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!
  • If you want even more bonuses, you’ll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That’s in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.

That’s it! It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I’ve earned Amazon gift cards which are perfect for picking up birthday gifts and of course, Christmas shopping!
