I’ve written about Swagbucks before, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s a program that you can sign up for and get paid to do certain things. They’ve incentivised just about everything. You can win Swagbucks for searching using their search site. You can earn Swagbucks for printing coupons (my favorite) and using them, and a whole bunch of other things.
Once you’ve earned the Swagbucks, you can trade them in for some cool stuff. They’ve got sweepstakes that you can “buy” entries in. My favorite way of using my balance is to trade 450 of them in for a $5 Amazon.com gift card. Every other month or so, I can add $5 to my Amazon account which usually goes towards a couple of ebooks or something (although, we used quite a few of them on a new backpack for our oldest this year).
One of the things that Swagbucks likes to do is put out special codes to encourage people to sign up for their service. And, Melissa, who writes here and at Mom’s Plans, was kind enough to send me over one.
So, from now until next Friday (9/21/2012), you can use the code FINCON12 (NOTE: I had FINCON as the code at publication and that was wrong. It’s been updated to the correct code FINCON12) when you sign up and get an extra 80 points when you do!
The code has been updated, and the deadline has been extended to 9/28/2012. Use the code FINCON2012 when you signup for Swagbucks, and receive an extra 80 points!
Go sign up and give it a try!
