    New Year, New Shop Swago
    Posted on January 4, 2019 by swagbucks
    It’s time for the next edition of Shop Swago!

    What is Shop Swago? Well, it’s where you can earn up to a 150 SB Bonus by simply visiting some of our most popular stores! However, you can also earn an extra 100 SB bonus for purchasing from MyGiftCardsPlus. That’s a 150 SB Bonus for completing your Board and another 100 SB Bonus for your MyGiftCardsPlus purchase of $50 or more!

    Here’s how it works

    • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, January 7th at 12AM PT/3AM ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. You can pre-register starting today.
    • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. Action items will include activating the SwagButton by visiting merchants, visiting merchants through Swagbucks on your mobile device and purchasing Gift Cards from MyGiftCardsPlus.
    • Once you complete the action item in a particular square, that 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 of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
    • 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.
    • In order to complete the MyGiftCardsPlus Square you must make a purchase of $50 or more.
    • The game ends Friday, January 11th at 11:59PM 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.


    NOTE: Gift Cards orders on MyGiftCardsPlus can take up to 2 business days to process so please make sure you allow yourself enough time for your SB to credit to make sure you can get your full Swago board bonus.



    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    I meant to restart this thread a couple days ago but stuff came up.
    I'm so glad you did!
    My board is full except the center, it's not worth it to me to buy a $50 gc that I don't need right now for 50 cents more in sb.
    I don't need the points today, so I'll wait until I do or time runs out to submit.
    Last month was the 1st time I have ever met my daily goal for the whole month. :D
    I ended up with 618 bonus for the month.
    I was happy with that!

    I think I got about 160 but it was a busy month and not enough hours in a day. Your total is awesome!

    300 was a bonus for meeting my bonuses for 31 days straight, the rest was those bonus points.
    It was the best I've ever done, I was happy!

    This is just a reminder for me...
    I had saved $100 to get Nike slides for my 3 still at home kids for Christmas and I did.
    What I should have done...got the cards ahead of time and taken advantage of the black Friday sales.
    I didn't and paid more!
    I even had to cash out another gc for Kohl's because my son's size in the cool ones I wanted was no longer available on the Nike site.
    Note to self...plan ahead next year!

    I agree, @Green is Gold. I used to plan ahead and get gcs for the Children's place, but now the kids I buy for are growing out of that store and want Justice (not on sb), AERO and American EAgle. I lucked out by getting American EAgle gcs on SB for my niece for Christmas and did the Aero gift cards for her birthday in November. I use my points or go through Mygift cards and have never had a problem.
    Justice had 50% off and free shipping so that was my only savings. I shopped too late to get what they wanted and will shop Black Friday online earlier next year.
    @Green is Gold, remember that Nike cards go on sale at Swagbucks throughout the year, so that is an extra savings. Hopefully you can stock up! d3 is a nike fanatic, but she cannot wear their sneakers since they are too narrow and she has a wide foot. However, she can find many other things to buy herself in that store. D3 has nearly every color running bra or shirt they make. Sometimes we find Nike stuff in Tj maxx or Marshalls too.

    I lucked out by getting some high payout surveys and that was how I did the bulk of my Christmas shopping. I earned $175 by reviewing movies that were on cable and HBO. Could not believe my luck on that one. They had you answer questions and surveys for 1 week and I received my payout 1 week later.

    I had never activated the SwagButton for shopping until this season as I don't usually do that much on-line shopping. However, this year I bought a few things here and there and the little activation button kept popping up and I went ahead and clicked it. (I get hinky when I use my debit card on-line and wonder how much info gets strewn around.) I was wondering how long it would be before I saw the SB show up from my purchases. I checked my Swag account this morning, and I have 500 added in!! So, anything I bought in December is still to come?

    That is great @Jorainna Sometimes they give you a $5 bonus for shopping through them and it takes a while to credit. Glad to see it works. My tool bar has Ebates and SB and I decide between the two. The offer for $5 shop bonus has popped up before in my swag ups, but I did not use it. Maybe I will have to reconsider.

    I did shop through SB for one of my Christmas purchases at Justice and got 88 points that were credited 2 weeks later.

    @Jorainna only the 1st code today was shareable. The others have been what they call "unique" everyone's code will start out the same (example: WarmBeanie) but the random letters and numbers after it are unique to each person. Each person has to click the link and copy and paste their unique code. It took me forever to figure that out and has made sharing codes much harder.

    I missed the last code but it looks like they are sticking to the formula they have used for the last year or so for their extravaganzas. 1st and last codes are shareable, all the ones in the middle are unique.

    If you participated in the team challenge last week, you either won 100 points or 25 points. Check under SWAG UPS and ACTIVATE your prize. Once you redeem points for a g c , your points will credit automatically. It should have credited yesterday. I was on the winning team and did get the 100 points for contributing over 600 points to the team total.

    SB just made another change to the way we earn points watching videos. Oh, like they need to make it even tougher to earn points....um, yes!

    Posted: 18 Jan 2019 04:52 PM PST

    Here at Swagbucks we work very hard at providing exciting ways for our valued members to earn SB throughout their day. One of the easiest and most fun ways for members to earn is by watching our video playlists. Whether you use them complete your To-Do List or as a nice reprieve from finding the next great deal in Shop, watching our playlists can be a great way to catch up on the latest entertainment news or perhaps find a new recipe for tonight’s dinner.

    We take no joy in making changes that might cause you to have to work a bit harder to earn your SB but sometimes because of conditions beyond our control, we have no other choice. January is one of those times.

    We are making some changes to the length of our standard playlists in the Watch category. While the SB reward amounts will remain unchanged, we are going to be asking you to watch a few more videos—but we will try to make them as enjoyable as possible! Starting tonight video playlists will be rewarded as follows:

    15 Video Playlist: 1 SB (per completion)
    25 Video Playlist: 2 SB (per completion)
    30 Video Playlist: 3 SB (per completion)

    Please know that we are always evaluating how we can better serve our members in this area. Keep an eye out for new, more exciting content and fun, special promotions where you can earn a few extra SB for watching the videos you love.

    Team Swagbucks

    We take no joy in making changes that might cause you to have to work a bit harder to earn your SB but sometimes because of conditions beyond our control, we have no other choice. January is one of those times.
    Seriously, they do take joy in driving us nuts.

    My team lost and I know it said 25 points...but I got 50 for some reason? I don't know why, but I'll take it.

    Yesterday, I bought a $50 ebay gc through my gift cards. It earned me a $1.50 plus it helped me get to the 250 point level for my SWAGO board payout.

    Today is the the last day (by 6 pm est) to submit your SWAGO board for points and these points will credit to your daily goal total.
    This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see my SB total jump up and when I checked, I was credited 500 points for a survey I did in late November. I think it was for trying Palmolive dish washing liquid. My swago spin and win earned me several 50 % completion bonuses for surveys, so I earned another 250 points. I have now met my goal for the beginning of February and have enough points for a $25 gc for only 2200 points.
