A brief Swagbucks heads-up.

thA shout-out to anyone who uses the Swagbucks rewards site: Another set of five “Collector’s Bills” starts on Monday, July 1.

Every time a new batch of Collector’s Bills comes along I get absurdly focused on earning all five. Guess I really am an American: I like to collect the whole set.

This time the theme is “Swagbucks Around the World,” with images of famous sites. Together they add up to 54 SBs and you’ll get a bonus of 20 SBs if you collect all five bills, which are awarded at random when you search the Internet.

Since you can earn the same image more than once it can be a little confusing. To check how many of the five you’ve stashed, go to the landing page and click on “My Swag Bucks,” then on the “Collector’s Bills” tab. The deadline to catch ’em all is July 8.

A second shout-out to those who don’t use Swagbucks: Give it a try. I cash my SBs in solely for Amazon gift cards, which I use for holiday and birthday presents, specialty items for myself (everything from olive oil to wool socks), and get-well or “just because” gifts for friends. But you can choose from other gift cards, electronics, housewares, health and beauty items, jewelry, daily deals and more.

If you join by clicking on the above link, 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. Good luck to all with collecting the whole set.

(And yeah, I know that in an earlier post today I said I was too busy getting out of town to do much with the site. I’m writing this on my lunch break, OK? Probably¬† not ergonomically smart but on the other hand I won’t be using the computer at all while we fly to Philly — and that’s a long damn plane ride from Anchorage.)

  1. Uh, I’ve been doing Swagbucks for two years and I have no idea what “collector’s” bucks are.

    I know you’re busy but could you be a bit more specific?

    • Donna Freedman

      Sorry! The collector’s bucks have special designs on a specific theme (summer, the holidays, whatever). At times you’ll get a win with a special design vs. the usual ones. If you collect all five you get a little bonus, which in this case is 20 SBs.
      Again, there’s something ridiculously satisfying about getting all five.
      Thanks for reading, and for leaving a comment.

  2. WHERE do you find these collectors bucks?

    • Donna Freedman

      You must have missed my earlier reply…You sometimes get a collector buck in lieu of a regular one. It will have a special design. Good luck!

      • Sorry about that! When I read your reply a couple of times it finally clicked in my head.
