Swagbucks: 5 for 5 + 100 Points for New Members

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.


I talk about Swagbucks at least once a week — because I really love their site!  You earn points for doing the simplest things.  You can then redeem those points for great prizes such as Amazon gift cards.  I do this all year long, accumulate my cards and then use them to help offset my Christmas shopping!  It is such an easy way to get things for free!

If you haven’t joined Swagbucks, you can do so right now and get 70 bonus points.  That will give you an instant 100 points in your account.     Just make sure you enter the code 5For5 when you register, you’ll get the bonus instantly applied to your account.  Make sure that you sign up this week as this code is valid only through October 17th.

There is also a great promotion going on called 5 for 5.  Here is how it works:

  • Get at least 5 new referrals who are NOT members of your household or sharing an address with you.  Just use your personal referral code in your account and share that with your friends via Facebook, Twitter or even email.
  • Each referral must earn 50 Swag Bucks after joining (not including any bonuses they may get during sign up).  They can do this by following the site on Twitter, Facebook, doing searches — all sorts of things.
  • Once your 5 (or more) referrals each earn that minimum of 50 Swag Bucks, you’ve qualified for a bonus of 500 Swag Bucks, which will be applied at the end of each month, so if you’ve get it done in October, you’ll earn your bonus early! If you earn it in November, you’ll get your bonus then. (Only one bonus per person.)

Swagbucks has to be one the easiest ways to get free items.  I have cashed in on so many gift cards that’s crazy!  If you still aren’t sure, you can read up more on my Swagbucks 101  post.
