EDIT: This code is no longer valid.
How many times have we written about Swagbucks here? A gazillion? It probably has something to do with how awesome the site is – in fact, I just cashed out my fourth $5 Amazon giftcard this weekend thanks to them.
For anybody who is new to HIF, SB is basically Google + prizes. You search with them just as you would with Google, but the key difference occurs randomly when you win swag bucks, which can ultimately be redeemed for gift cards, books, posters, and starting today – video games!
In fact, to promote some of the new changes they'll be rolling out this week, they've given HIF an exclusive code. Signing up for a free account will net you 3 points automatically. Then you can use the code FREECODE to gain an additional 3 points, giving you 6. For reference, a free $5 Amazon giftcard costs 45 points, so you'll already be 13% of the way towards your first prize. Like I said in my previous post, I average about 2-3 swag bucks a day though my normal search habits, which takes me about 15-20 days to earn my prize of choice. (the code above will expire on June 16 at 11:59pm PST)
Some of their new features this week include a widget that you can place on your blog / website, a newly designed frontpage, and a favorites section in their store. If you were ever wondering why Swagbucks destroyed Blingo and Winzy, I think you now have your answer!
I know it kinda stinks that the Swagbucks code doesn't work for members who have already registered, but they are holding point giveaways for all users on their Twitter, Facebook, and blog this week. Plus, I'll be starting another survey tomorrow afternoon with some prizes. So there's that to look forward to 🙂
