HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY SWAGBUCKS!!!! What I love about Swagbucks is that while they may be the one’s turning a year old, YOU all get the gifts! In honor of their second birthday, you are going to notice that your point balance increased a little bit overnight. Say — BY 10 TIMES!!! Yep — your balance increased 10x over! Now, the prizes also increased by 10, but at least you aren’t behind now – huh?

Be sure to visit the site, Twitter, blog, toolbar and Facebook all day long for LOTS of chances for free points! Be sure that you opt in for the newsletter too as it will come out on Friday and normally has a code in it to help increase your points!

Part of what is happening today is the launch of 3.0. This will provide you a chance to earn more points by being logged in through the toolbar as well as completing no obligation offers. The home page and Swag Store are getting a facelift to be even more user friendly for simpler navigation. There will also be even MORE swagstakes going on so you can have more chances to win great prizes!

I know I have had several of you ask me — what in the world IS Swagbucks? Well, I told you to hang tight and I’d tell you. Read on to learn more and also WHY today is a great day to sign up!

Swagbucks is basically a search engine. The difference is that you earn points when you search. I actually use it for my searches and have gotten a lot of points this way. You can also earn points through Swag codes (which I share how to find and where to post), reading the blog, reading facebook, purchases as well as other ways.

So, what do you use your points for? Lots of great prizes! I have actually already purchased $20.00 in Amazon gift cards since the first of the year. I am planning on saving all of mine and seeing how little Christmas can cost my family this year. For me, it is the $5.00 cards that I purchase — they add up quickly.

You can also build up your points by referring friends. When they earn points – so do you! So, you give them a link (which you can find on Swagbucks) and earn points that way too!

Now, if you haven’t joined yet – today is a GREAT day to get signed up!! When you sign up – TODAY ONLY – you will get 6 Swagbucks, rather than just 3! And of course, since everything is now multiplied by 10 – you will get 60 points! Then, you will also be able to jump in and take part in all of the birthday festivities and point opportunities taking place all day long. Just head on over to Swagbucks and sign up. When you do – use the code PENNYPINCHIN to get your bonus points!

Thanks Swagbucks for sharing all of this info with me and giving my readers bonus points! Happy Birthday!!
