Mega Swagbucks Friday!! Earn Gift Cards and/or other Prizes!!

Search & Win

Are you using  Swag Bucks  to search and win?  You're probably saying Swag-what?  I have been earning  Swag Bucks for about the past four months and have earned enough to cash in for $100 worth of Amazon Gift Cards!  Know what I'm gonna use mine for...CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!  It will be so nice to have a little help with shopping for gifts by using my gift cards that I earned from  Swag Bucks .

If you are not familiar with Swag Bucks, here's how it works.  Swag Bucks is a search engine that pays you with virtual currency called "Swag Bucks" for searching with their site.  The Swag Bucks are like points that you can apply toward gift cards and other prizes. And since today is Mega Swag Bucks Friday this means that the value of searches are higher than that of normal you could earn even more today!  What a great day to start earning Swag Bucks!

I wanted to highlight some info that might help you start to earn even more Swag Bucks.  If you have signed up for Swag Bucks and are thinking to yourself, "what do I do now?" or are just signing up and not sure how it works here's a few tips:
  • Install the Swag Bucks Toolbar after registering and starting an account.  Use the toolbar for all of your searching.  You never know when you will win! And you will earn 1 Swag Bucks per day for using it!
  • Use the Swag Bucks Toolbar when you are typing in a website that you would like to visit.  Use the toolbar and Swag Bucks as much as you can!  The more you use the toolbar to search, the better chance you will have of winning some Swag Bucks.
  • "Like" the Swag Bucks Facebook Page and check out updates and see when codes are released for extra Swag Bucks
  • You will NOT win for every search.  The most I have won in a day's time has been three. If I win a search in the morning, I will wait until afternoon to try and win again.  Usually, I will get a win within the first few searches I try.    
  • Take the Daily Polls at Swag Bucks  to earn 1 daily...that's 30 per month!
  • You can also watch Swag Bucks TV to earn additional Swag Bucks!
  • You can play games to win Swag Bucks  on the Swag Bucks website.
  • Visit the Swag Bucks  NOSO page, click through the offers (I decline or skip everyone of them) and just by visiting the page and going through the offers, you will win 2 Swag Bucks!  You can do this once every day!  That's 60 Swag Bucks per month! 
  • You can print coupons from the Swag Bucks  website.  These are the same coupons as, so if you print from Swag Bucks  you will not be able to print the same coupons from  You will earn 10 Swag Bucks  for every coupon your redeem at the store.  This process will take 8-12 weeks to show in your account.
  • You can also win  Swag Bucks  by referring your friends.  When one of your referrals wins a search, you will be credited with the same amount of  Swag Bucks  as they won!  You will receive referral  Swag Bucks  on searches only.  (up to 1,000  Swag Bucks)
It really is fun and easy, they add up before you know it!  Also, be on the watch for codes released for extra Swag Bucks!  There have been several this week.  You can always check the Swidget on the right hand bottom of The Frugal Friends Blog to see if there is an active code.  Click on the Swag Code button and check for codes.  Then just follow the instructions if a code is available.  Pretty simple :)  

Good Luck!!

Important Announcement...

I just wanted to let all you wonderful Frugal Friends out there know that next week will be the final week for The Frugal Friends Blog.  I have given this much thought and consideration, and although I have went back and forth with the idea, feel like this is the thing for me to do.

As most of you know, The Frugal Friends Blog is ran basically by me.  Unfortunately, I am only one person (lol) and have been running very thin between blogging and my other obligations as a mother, wife, work, etc.  Also, over the past several weeks I have noticed a steady decrease in the traffic and lower level of  interaction/interest.  All of this combined has lead me to this decision.

This is not the end of The Frugal Friends!!!  I still plan to update the Facebook page with deals and money saving ideas and I also plan to continue teaching classes on how to shop smart.  The Frugal Friends will still go on, and I hope that you will still follow along on our Facebook Page!

Thanks to each and everyone who has read this blog, attended a class, left a comment, emailed a deal or referred us to your friends.  I am truly thankful to you all and hope to continue to bring you great ideas on saving money and living a Fabulous Frugal Life!
