Get Your Free Swagbucks!

Search & Win

UPDATE: Thanks to Kerry for emailing and Melissa for leaving a comment that there is another free swagcode out there.

NewYear2009 - Expired ( I will update again once new codes come out )

Right now, thru December 21st NOON, you can get a free Swagbuck in your account by entering code SWAGGERNAUT-Expired.

In addition, thanks to Skyfly21 for commenting that you can get a 2nd free Swagbuck with code SWAG1-Expired

New to Swagbucks? Join. Seriously! It is one of my favorite programs.

What is it, you may ask? It is a search engine, just like Google. In fact, it is powered by Google and Ask. You save it as your homepage, and everytime you need to do a search on the web, you do it thru Swagbucks instead of Google or whatever program you currently use.

Then, you randomly get swag bucks that can be redeemed for gift cards, prizes, etc. On average, you can make about $5 a month in gift cards for doing something you already do. Remember, every little bit helps.

BUT, if you refer friends, you can make even more. You get a swagbuck everytime they win, up to 100. That can add up fast, if you tell alot of people. I made enough to buy all my Christmas gifts for nothing out of pocket....thanks to all the gift certificates I had accumulated. I am talking over $100 worth of merchandise.

Click here to register with Swagbucks yourself. Then, save as your Homepage.

Now, how do you get your free point with the code above?

Click on the large number in the right side of the screen ( showing your Swagbucks ). It will take you to 2nd page, called Your Swag Bucks. Scroll down to the Have a SwagCode? box and enter it there.

Wa, la! You have an extra point!

By the way, don't forget today, Friday, is their 1000 Swagbucks guarantee day. They will give 1000 Swagbucks in Mega Bills away today! Your chances of getting extra points go up substantially today.

I don't know if you've already posted this or not, but if you put in SWAG1 you'll also get one swag buck!

Thanks again for posting about SwagBucks. I just got to 50 and redeemed a $5 Starbucks card. In an effort to save money, I've been making coffee at home but I always enjoy a good mocha! And I was "searching" anyways, so why not use Swagbucks!! Thanks.

I couldn't download the tool bar - but I do searches fom the swagbucks site sometimes. The interesting thing is that even without clearing my cookies - if I am not logged in, usually one of my first couple of searches pays a swagbuck.

So I just go to the site, do a couple searches, and then get a swagbuck and log in - and claim the swagbuck.

Guess what search term results in a swagbuck MOST of the time -


Woo Hoo! I get a swagbuck just for checking out my all time favorite blog!

If anyone became a "fan" of swagbucks on Facebook before 12/31/2008 you can use this code for a free swagbuck:


It is case sensitive.

Okay--I totally didn't understand what you were saying!


I thought NewYear2009 was the title of this new post! I was so confused and thought you posted this blog as a mistake, UNTIL I scrolled down and saw the last comment.

You may want to make it a little more coherent (for dummies like me) and say something like, "Here's the new code." ;)

I love swagbucks!

I'm so excited about the new year. This month I have already saved over $300. My goal is to put away $200 a month on my own. I know this will be possible by staying tuned to your methods. Thank you for all you do.

Hi Carrie,

For some reason, neither code worked for me to get the extra bucks.
I did get 3 free ones just for that how it usually works?


Carrie @ said...

Yes, most people do seem to get 3 bucks when they join. Nice, isn't it?

The New Year code may be dead already.

The codes are usually shortlived ( with a specific date/time they go down ), and if you don't get it on them before are, unfortunately, out of luck.

I didn't know when the New Year code ended, so apparently it did today.

I will definitely update as I find more free codes for everyone.

Carrie, I am confused. Surprised? My husband does not want to make swagbucks the homepage since we log onto yahoo on the homepage so...Do I go to swagbucks to search? Do I sign in each time? Any ideas about the homepage and logging into yahoo mail? You know I get confused.

Carrie @ said...


Yes. Instead of searching thru Yahoo, go to

Once there, if you are not automatically logged in ( most of the time mine is ), then log in first.

Then, everytime you need to do a search, just type it in there searchbox.

BUT...the best bet would be to install the toolbar.

Go to How It Works in the left menu bar on their main page.

Scroll down until you see where it explains the Toolbar. Click there then download the toolbar.

It will show up on the top of your webpage no matter what webpage you are on ( even Money Saving Methods ). If you need to search, you go up to their little search box, and click search.

That way, you can still have Yahoo as your home page, too, but also have Swagbucks on all pages.

Hey nice blog!

I recently joined Swagbucks.

I only have 9 bucks so far tho. I'm having a hard time keeping up lol. I've never gotten any of the codes.. they always expire before I do.

I only get for searching but just one in like 2 days or so haha.

But it's still pretty cool tho! It's a nice sideline.. I know one day it'll add up and I'll be able to get a prize.

I also make real cash in other ways too so it's pretty cool.

Stop by my blog if you get a chance :)


Keep up the great blog! I really love the colors :)
