How To Be A Swaggernaut for Beginners

I noticed I’m getting quite a few people from here signing up for Swagbucks lately so I thought it might be a good time to do an overview of how to make the big bucks… and prizes. Swagbucks is a site that pays you in “Swagbucks” for simple activities like using their searchbar instead of Google. You redeem your Bucks for prizes and cash. It’s that simple. I haven’t been “swagging” for that long and already I’ve gotten some Kindle books I wanted and an iPod Shuffle for my son.

But how do you get Swagbucks? The easiest way I find is to download the toolbar and then use it for regular searches. You will find the toolbar at the top of the Swagbucks homepage (see picture).

I’ve had it downloaded for a few months now and haven’t had any trouble with it at all. When you need to search up anything use their search and you will randomly be awarded extra Swagbucks – anywhere from 5 to 50 or more.  This is the simplest way to get your Bucks up.

If you want to be a more active Swagger you can do daily activities.  I do these every morning in conjunction with my morning email check and it takes me about 5 minutes.  The first daily activity is the Poll and the second is NOSO.  These are located on the left hand column on the Swagbucks homepage.  (see picture)

The Daily Poll is just a question that you answer with a click.  The questions are often interesting – like Do you sneak food into the movie theater?  I am always interested to see how many people do or don’t.

The NOSO daily activity takes slightly more time.  NOSO stands for No Obligation Special Offer.  Advertisers offer up pages for you to look at.  They hope when you will find something you are interested in and take advantage of their offer.  I have been interested once or twice but usually I just speed thru the process to get my Swagbucks at the end.  Just look for the “Skip” or “See Next Offer” button at the bottom of the advert.  Click those and you’ll be done in 30 seconds.

These activities will get you started earning your Swagbucks.  Tomorrow I’ll post some of the more advanced ways you can rack up points and get the big loot fast.  I’ve had so much fun on this site – it’s easy to see why they have 950,384 fans on their Facebook alone!

Finally, thanks to all of you who have signed up to Swagbucks thru my referral links… and if you you haven’t joined us yet you can get in on the fun (and goodies) thru my referral link here (enter the code BIRTHDAYBASH12 during the sign up process from now until February 27th for 140 Swagbucks instead of the usual sign up 30)

Stay tuned for the big Bucks tomorrow… ;D
