Not a Swagbucks member? Get a bonus if you join by the end of the day.

Yesterday I took part in an online chat at CompareRewards.com, a site specializing in news and reviews of rewards programs. One of the guests was from Swagbucks.com, my favorite rewards site.

She gave us a promo code, good only through this weekend, that will provide new members with 70 Swagbucks upon joining, instead of 30.

I intended to put up a post last night — but I lost my Internet connection. (Moral of the story: Don’t intend. Just do.)

So if you aren’t a Swagbucks member yet, I hope you’ll do the following:

Join by pasting my referral link into your browser, http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/Newlife1114

While filling out the info look for a place to put a promo code. Then type in this: SBrewards2012.

For a primer on the Swagbucks experience, see my MSN Money article on the topic, “Get free gift cards from Swagbucks.” You’ll learn, among other things, how Swagbucks bought my underwear. (Not from me — for me.)

    Didn’t get the chance to input the code so only got 30 points. DRAT!

    • I believe you can still use it. On the home page, right side under the green search and win button, is where you can enter swagcodes. Copy and paste as the codes are case sensitive.

  2. Donna, is it possible for you to write more thoughtful posts instead? All you are doing is writing simple posts on ways to try to make you money and giveaways. That’s nice and all, but the writing quality is really low. There’s not much insight or value added.

      @Rachel: Believe me, I’m aware of this. Lately I have been hammered with deadlines and other issues, too busy/tired to do enough substantive writing. I’m looking for ways around this. In the meantime, may I suggest you check “Popular Posts” or visit the tag cloud to find links to better stuff?

  3. Well, pooh….But thanks for signing up. Here’s a useful tip: Check the Swagbucks Facebook page during the day and when you see comments like “Thanks for the code,” use the Swagbucks widget on my site to find out where to look (e.g., on Twitter or the SB blog).
