If you're a TV lover, Hulu has an offer through Swagbucks where you get $20 for trying Hulu (paid in the form of points called SB) for a month. That will cost you $7.99, so you're making $12 on the deal!

Hulu has tons of current and classic programming, movies, brilliant original series, and more. Here's how you do it:

1. Click this link.
2. Create your Swagbucks account (takes 30 seconds).
3. Click "Continue" and sign up for Hulu.
4. Enjoy Hulu! You should have your points within 30 minutes.

Haven't tried Swagbucks yet? They're a site where you earn points (called SB) for doing things like online shopping, watching videos, taking surveys, and discovering deals and services you might like to try (like Hulu!). You then take those points and turn them into free gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

This is a great time to join because when you sign up for Swagbucks through this link and get your 2000 SB, you'll get a bonus 300 SB at the beginning of September.

So that's $20 (2000 SB) for trying Hulu plus your $3 (300 SB) bouns, which gets you 2300 SB, which means you make $15 total for trying Hulu!

Swagbucks August Swago: Back to School Shopping Edition!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 8, 2017 · 0 comments

 
If you still haven't done your Back-to-School shopping, here's a way you can get paid for finding the coolest swag for the kids in your life...

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, August 7th at 9am PT/12pm ET. Make sure you hit "Join", otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the 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.
  • The game ends Thursday, August 10th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. 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.

Also, if you sign up through me this month, you'll get an additional $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping!!! You can activate it in the "Swag Ups" area of "My Account".

Swagbucks July Swago Promotion {500 SB Bonus!}

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 22, 2017 · 2 comments

 
Swagbucks is holding their Swago promotion starting Monday, July 24th at 9am PDT! It's just like bingo, but in this case you're filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you're thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it.   

The best part is that the points you get can be used to get free gift cards to places like Amazon, or PayPal cash! Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points -- if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 550 SB bonus! That's enough for a $5 gift card in our Rewards Store.

Click here to sign up and get started! If you sign up through my link and earn 300 SB before the first of next month, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

If you're new to Swagbucks (or not), be sure to check out my comprehensive post on earning SB to learn how to earn even more after you register!
