It’s been a big week for A Frugal Friend! A brand new design, an expert contributor spot at PBS Sprout for Parents, and a new Sprout gift basket giveaway! And there’s more……..
SwagBucks wants to help me celebrate too! Today only (Friday, March 6, 2009 until 8pm PST), SwagBucks is offering an exclusive code to readers of A Frugal Friend. The code works only if you are new to Swag Bucks registering today. (Sorry….I wish it could be for us all).

3 points (regular sign-up) AND
2 points (extra bonus)
= 5 points to start off with
Enter the following code exactly (it’s case sensitive):
Where do I enter the free code?
Looks like there is a spot on the sign up page to enter it. There’s a box that says SwagCode….enter it in there.

If you have any questions at all, let me know.
What in the world is this SwagBucks thing everybody is talking about?
That’s what I kept saying too, now it’s my absolute favorite thing. I had heard about it for months, but kept putting it off. Finally I started looking into it and signed up just this January.
Swagbucks is an alternative to Googling, but the results are powered by Google. More importantly, you win Swagbucks by searching. You win Swagbucks just for doing something you already were doing anyway – searching the internet.
They start you off with 3 free Swagbucks (plus the 2 extra today just by visiting my blog) and then you WIN Swagbucks when you search online. After only a few searches the first day, I had already accumulated 6 Swagbucks. After a couple of weeks, I had earned enough to redeem! Yeah. The best part – you can turn them in for gift cards (or other items).
The way I look at it, this is FREE money they are giving me for choosing to “SwagBuck” something instead of “Google”.
A Few of my Favorites:
45 points = $5 e-gift card to Amazon.com
115 points = $10 e-gift card to Barnes N Noble
130 points = $10 gift card to Starbucks
400 points = $50 e-gift card to Southwest Airlines
Other gift cards available: Target, Disney.com, Sears, Lowe’s, Wii points and so many more.
Merchandise available – MP3 singles, books, TV series DVD’s, sports memorabilia and more.
Everytime I need to search on the internet, I just go to the SwagBucks home page……others have the option to download a toolbar on their computer. I find it easier to just go to their homepage. If you are online often, like me, you’ll earn quickly.
Make sure you get your spouse or significant other to sign up too! Another perk is that you can earn SwagBucks for referring your friends too or even recycling your old cellphone.
They often publish free SwagBucks codes on their blog and I’ll be sure to point you in that direction if I find one.
Today, Friday, is also Mega SwagBuck day and they are giving away extra large SwagBucks so do a few random searches for things today. Go there and search for fun activities this weekend, Daylight Savings, or even A Frugal Friend.
