Zoom over to Swagbucks and enter the code BloggerTips, which is good from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Pacific today. The case-sensitive code is valid in the United States, Australia and Canada.
Go ahead. I’ll wait. But then come back to find out what a “Five for Five” promotion is.
Now that you’re back, here’s the scoop: Swagbucks has asked bloggers to put out posts touting the latest code. I’ll be doing this four more times between Friday, Aug. 9 and Saturday, Aug. 17. Each code is worth five points. (Hence, “Five for Five.”)
I already put active codes up on my site’s Facebook page whenever I find them – it’s legal now – but obviously this is somewhat hit-and-miss. Thus I suggest that you check your blog feed on the following days:
- Friday, between noon and 2 p.m.
- Monday, Aug. 12, from 6 to 7 a.m.
- Tuesday, Aug. 13, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
- Saturday, Aug. 17, from noon to 2 p.m.
Note: All times are Pacific.
If you don’t know about this rewards program, the “Swagbucks redux…” article will give you the basics. Feel free to click on the link in the article to join. (If you do, I will receive a referral bonus. If you don’t want to do that, then just go to www.swagbucks.com and sign up that way.)
I hesitated to join this promotion because I’m not a deal blogger as such. Ultimately I decided to do it just to give readers a shot at the extra points.
I invariably cash mine in for Amazon gift cards, which I stockpile for holidays, birthdays and “just because” occasions. From time to time I use them to order glamorous things for myself, such as wool socks and long underwear. That’s the kind of thing that happens when you move back to Alaska.
