Swag Codes and Search and Earn

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I know I have asked several Swagbucks questions in the past, but I have a couple more:

 

What is a Swag Code?

 

How can you earn by using Swagbucks as a search engine?  I have been using it for all of my searches for a while now, and I haven't seen any swagbucks in my history for searching.  I have tried both the tool bar and searching from the main page.  Are these added daily?  Are they accumulated by how many individual searches you do?  Just not sure why I haven't seen anything yet.

Bucks from searches are just random. They are more giving with the bucks on Fridays. I did not download the toolbar because it crashed a friend's computer. I search through their site to get bucks that way.

 

You can find Swag Codes on Facebook. They will give a clue and the answer is the swagcode. They expire within a certain amount of time though.

Your Swagbucks from searching should be immediately added to your account. Hold your mouse over your name on the upper right corner of the Swagbucks page. Click on "My Swagbucks" then "View Your Full History" at the bottom.

 

Search wins are listed as "Searching the Web... 9 SB" or however many.  

 

You don't get Swagbucks for every search.  Occasionally you will "win" a search and a note will pop up that says "Congratulations! You won X SB" sometimes with a Captcha.

I use swagbucks to search everything all day long and I probably only receive swagbucks once per day (averages around 8 to 10 swagbucks--sometimes higher/sometimes lower).  I also did not download the toolbar because it crashed my computer once--had to totally rebuild it.  And swagcodes...I only get those from friends.  I never find them on my own. Someone might post them online or on here.  I really just don't think about whether I am earning points or not--it's just a bonus.  I have a nice little stash of Amazon gift cards by doing this.

I usually only get search swagbucks about once a day now, but sometimes twice. There are many people though who routinely get them twice a day and sometimes even three times a day. It is odd if you're not getting any. I've never known of that to happen to anyone. Are you signed in when you're searching?

As far a codes, I'm signed up for a site that tells you when a code is live so I usually get most (or at least 50%) of them. The thing about swagcodes is they are constantly downgrading how much they are worth. Most of the swagcodes now are often under 5 swagbucks which hardly even seems worth it, although I still plug them in faithfully anyway!!

I think I am signed in.  Everything else I do shows up, like the daily poll, games, NOSO, and surveys (if I get lucky enough to get to complete one); but I have never gotten any for searching.  I just don't get it.  I must be doing something wrong.

So, you go directly to the swagbucks page to search? What browser are you using?

 

And, do you live in America? Because search wins are not valid overseas (at least they weren't when I lived in India).

Have you made swagbucks your default search engine?  That way you don't have to go to the swagbucks home page to search.  You can just type your search words in your web address line.

I do live in the US, but I did not make it my home page.  Maybe that's the problem.  I am using Firefox. Does that make a difference?

And I still haven't recieved any swagbucks for searching or found any swagcodes.
