If you’ve followed Coupon Geek for very long at all, you’ve probably heard me mention how one of my favorite online programs is Swagbucks. Through Swagbucks, you can earn points through doing online searches, taking surveys, watching videos, finding hidden codes, etc. Save up those points and you can turn them in for valuable gift cards to places such as Amazon, Chili’s, Target, CVS and several more restaurants and retailers.
Haven’t signed up yet? It’s a great time to join as Swagbucks has offered me a special code that will get new members an additional 70 Swagbucks on top of the 30 you already get when you sign-up–that means you’ll start off with 100 Swagbucks without having to really do anything yet (and it only takes 450 for a $5 Amazon gift card.) If you are planning on signing-up, you’ll need to use code COUPONGEEK70 by 4/8/13 to get that extra bonus. (Note: When you sign-up be sure to click on the text “I have a sign-up code” upon registration and add that code or you won’t get the extra points.)
I mentioned that one of the ways you could earn points is through watching videos on Swagbucks TV. You’ll find these under the category “Watch” at the top of the screen. Once your video meter reaches 100%, you’ll earn 3 SBs, up to a total of 150 per day. What’s nice is that you can see the bubbles in the meter fill in so you’ll know how close you are to earning the next set of points. You can click on the arrows/dots to find more featured videos. They now have content from Hulu with added television material and also music videos from VEVO. I watched a few movie trailers, some recipe videos and a few extra videos to earn a fairly quick 3SBs today.
Swagbucks has been generous to offer me a $25 Target AND a $25 Amazon Giftcard for the one reader that wins this giveaway. This is a great way to have a little shopping spree for yourself if you win.
