As per request, this will be a weekly thread started for newbies and even for more advanced users. Feel free to post any questions you have, or if you are having problems with the website or your browser and need help.

As a basic reminder, try to do the daily 4 to get points. It takes maybe that many minutes to do them.
-Daily poll
-NOSO offers (just skip through them to get your point)
-View your survey offers
-Toolbar use

Swagbucks TV is a good way to earn 75 SB a day. Get it going, let it run, and it racks them up (slowly though).

As a warning regarding searching for those that don't know it, don't search randomly and repetitively. If you are searching an unreasonable amount of times, they will pick up on it, and your account will be temporarily block from earning swagbucks.

If anyone finds a code, we can post about it here so all the other peas can find it too. Just a reminder and also for those that don't know---do NOT post the code itself anywhere online until after it has expired. If they connect this to your account, your account can and will be deleted. You CAN post about its location though, as in letting people know it is on the blog, or facebook, etc. Also, since the codes expire, it would probably be a good idea to post the expiration time with it.

Also, feel free to brag a bit. If you're excited when you win something, share it! It's exciting. It's free stuff!

Any new peas that wander in and want to join, I have a referral link in my signature, and I'm sure any swagbucks pea would also be happy to give you their link if you peamail them for it, if you prefer to do that. ***Disclaimer*** This is a referral link. Any one that gives you a referral link will be credited with matching swagbucks for your searches up to 1000, including myself. They are referrals, and we do benefit from them. But so can you once you join and get referrals of your own.

There's a link on the Special Offers page today to watch a video for Winter Wipeout and get 2 SBs.

ETA: Just redeemed for another $5 Amazon GC

ETA #2: Looks like you can watch the Winter Wipeout video daily -- I was able to do it again today (Tuesday) for another 2 SBs. It's under the TrialPay tab on the Special Offers page, in case anyone is having trouble finding it.

Cool! I just started Swagbucks, and already have 490! I bought DS the new Cake Mania game from Bigfish, and got something like 378 points. The game itself was $4.99, and it was an instant download.

I did one of the offers from Trialpay and was not impressed. It said that the bucks come through immediately. It's been two days, emailed reciepts, and 4 contact forms. *grumble*

Anyone have any issues getting SB's from Trialpay? How do you get referrals? I am saving mine for Amazon GC's. I am an Amazon ho.

While watching SBTV yesterday, I kept having trouble with the Lysol ads. It would freeze the whole tv watching, so I would have to refresh the screen to get it going again. Has this happened to anyone else? I dread seeing Lysol commercials now!!

Yep, I got the freeze on the Lysol commercials too. I have it open in another window - I have to click to start the videos, they won't just play - and the loop of the Lysol music made me nuts.

I signed up yesterday and have 60 already. You do get points for using the toolbar. So now when I would have googled it, I use the swagbuck search.

I am not sure about the tv though. When my tv meter got full I only earned 15 points that was no where near 75. Can you fill it up more than once per day?

The Lysol ad wants you to interact with it, that is what it is waiting for. You have to choose scrub or wipe and click on it and the person either scrubs or wipes lol. I guess they just want to make sure you are watching.

I cant find the SB message board. Where is it?

Yes, you can keep filling up the TV meter.

I was having problem with them running continually also. The first day I tried it several ran one after the other, but now I have to hit play to move to the next.

You can fill up the tv meter 15 times a day. You get 5 sb each time it gets filled up. So 5x15=75

I just joined too. Today is my third day and I already have over 200 bucks from the videos and searching mostly.

One question though. My DH signed up as my referral but my referral page doesn't show anything yet. He signed up yesterday. When will he show up?

Usually you'll see your referrals in a day or two.

I've gotten 18 points today just by typing NSBR into the search to get here.

Do you get any points from a referral that doesn't do anything?

did you get the 18 points in one sum or did it break it up? I have been using it for 3 days and have 267 points b/c I was able to do a survey-yeah!

I saw I got 10 SB for searching today but I don't know what exactly for. Is there a maximum you can get for searching?

I also have a question about the NOSO-when I click to start it tells me it can't connect. Do I have to wait a week?

Pink mocha, the way you get points from referrals is because swagbucks will match whatever bucks they get from searching. So if your referral searches and wins 10, then you get 10 swagbucks, and it shows up under your ledger as 10 from referral "their name" So you don't get anything if they don't ever search.

Gina-i'm not sure why it won't let you connect to NOSO, but I can't think of any reason you would need to wait a week.

scrappinghappy, right click on the toolbar and select "toolbar options"

Unselect the things you don't want, hit ok, and then they're gone. Make sure you keep "from TSG" though. That is where they will put codes when they are doing toolbar codes, and you don't want to miss out.

I was reading FAQ last night and it said that SB only allows ONE account per HOUSEHOLD. You can share accounts but only one per house is allowed otherwise you will be banned.

If you turn swagbucks tv on and let it run, that gives you the potential to earn 75 swagbucks a day. A lot of times you have to make sure it is the "active" window though. The daily 4 (in OP) help too. I do a lot of special offers that only require email confirmation. I have a separate gmail account set up for this purpose. You can sometimes find videos in the special offers where you watch on video and get 2 SB. And look for swagcodes. They can be posted on facebook, twitter, on the blog, or hidden in various places, but they are only good for short periods of time.

Other than that, just make swagbucks your default search engine, and you can earn about 30 a day just by doing that.

OH no!! I use google Premier and enabling Swagbucks has disabled Google Premier completely. I can't even get into my email account at all. Not even if I enter the URL manually

What to do? HELP!!

One question though. My DH signed up as my referral but my referral page doesn't show anything yet. He signed up yesterday. When will he show up


I would have him cancel his account. They only allow one per household & I believe they will cancel both of your accounts when they figure it out.



I've gotten 18 points today just by typing NSBR into the search to get here.

Do you get any points from a referral that doesn't do anything?


Nope, I've got 4 referrels who have done nothing but sign up so I've gotten 0 from them. You on the other hand are an excellent referrel I've gotten over 300 bucks for you signing up so far! Thanks, it's fun watching that counter go up, lol!


There's a link on the Special Offers page today to watch a video for Winter Wipeout and get 2 SBs.


Thanks, I'm off to find that one!


What helps me most was to "like" Swag Bucks on FB. You can watch there for hints to where the codes are. I also have several friends on facebook that are also doing swagbucks. If I see it pop up on my window that they just found a code, then I know to go searching. I have one friend that always finds them within about 15 minutes of them posting them, so I've gotten several just from seeing that posted on her facebook.

Crap, are you guys serious? I had no idea. How do they know if you are in the same household? We didn't fill out anything with our home address on it? I don't want to cheat the system but I was just wondering how they would know. DH will be mad...LOL. He was starting to get into it.

Today is my 3rd day with swagbucks; I have 107 currently. I've tried letting the tv run, but haven't managed to get any points from that yet, since I keep having to click on things, and I get distracted, lol!

One survey I filled out took me to Bing search/rewards. I can't figure out the proper name for it. But I already have 300 points there. It works much like swagbucks. You can earn giftcards there, too, so you might want to check it out. I have both toolbars now at the top of my screen, and I go back and forth between the two, lol!

When I first joined I had my husband as a referral (not realizing it was one per household) Swagbucks figured it out when I tried to cash his swagbucks into Amazon GCs. They deleted his account and sent me a warning. I emailed them back apologizing for missing that rule and all is good with my account.

I wouldn't mind a referral or two if anyone is interested

Sorry, I didn't read that part when I first saw it. I shouldn't have any problem redeeming them, but how in the world will they know it's ME that is redeeming them? I mean, they have a barcode from the manufacturer that is scanned at the store. The manufacturer can't possibly put a new barcode on each one for each SB member.

I am trying to do some of the surveys, but after a couple of questions, it just goes to a blank page that says Swagbucks and there is a place to click to close the page. Does that mean that I didn't qualify for the survey?

Well, it is supposed to be when they are redeemed, but now y'all have me wondering. How do they KNOW you've redeemed?

And Heather, if you get the "close this window" it does mean you've been kicked out of the survey either because you don't qualify or it's full. I qualified for a lot of surveys when I first started, but now not so many.

Swagbucks is a search engine & you get random "swagbucks" for searching. There are also other ways to get bucks that are listed in this thread. Basically you go sign up for sb, you can sign up on your own or use a referral from a friend or someone here. There are lots of links in the the threads. When you use someone as a referral that means that that person will get the same amount of swagbucks(up to 1000) that you get for searching.
There are a lot of things you can use you swagbucks to purchase. A lot of people save them for Amazon GC's because those are stackable. I've also used them to buy gc's for Paypal.
HTH, ask any other questions that you might have.

In case anyone is interested, if you check out the SwagBucks page on Facebook, their is a thread under the Discussion tab that gives tips on which Special Offers really work, etc. It has really helped me not waste time and maximize my bucks.
