    Every time I see a Code these days, it’s only good in the SwagButton, which I refuse to install, and I don’t have a smartphone either. Do you think the Swag Codes tomorrow will be the same?

    Unfortunately, it is pretty much guaranteed that you will need the app or button/browser extension to redeem all swag codes going forward. As I noted a few posts above, they’ve completely removed the ability to redeem codes directly on their website.

    Some Options To Consider:

    • Install the Swagbutton on a browser and/or old computer you use ONLY to redeem swag codes (or other occasions it is needed like for Swago or shopping). Disable the button when not in use.

    • Just buy a cheap android OS 5+ mobile phone already!!! or buy a used one on ebay (stack the purchase with cashback, sales, codes etc.). Maybe you know someone with an old phone they don’t mind giving you or selling to you cheaply. Don’t activate it, just use it on WiFi. You can get a really decent one under $40… even if all you use it for is maxing out the main 7 video apps daily, it will pay for itself in a 2-3 months then the rest is gravy. I average $1 a day through the apps: it’s only about $0.50 a day right now due to the throttling, but that’ll be over soon, then it will be $1 to $1.50 most of the time depending on bonus rounds (over $3 a day is common with unlimited bonus rounds). That’s often not even counting additional potential earnings from the nCrave app or the Swag IQ trivia app.

    • Add a new activity into your rotation to make up for the SB you miss out on from the swag codes. For example, you can earn 10 SB a day/$3 a month with the Swagasaurus Run game (you earn 2 SB every 2 games no matter how well you score). That’s more than twice what you’d make if you were even able to redeem every single swag code before they expired or reached maximum redemptions. Another similar example is maxing out the daily 1 SB and 2 SB coupon “prints” under AdGate and Offer Toro.

    • Join every new team challenge so you can read the team members’ comments/pick up new tips on how to earn more… then come back and post/share them here.

    2nd swag code is out… they’re usually announced every two hours but I’m not sure how that will play out today since the last code at 7:30pm EST is on the half hour.

    @briarycliffs I’m sorry, it looks likes I gave you outdated info on sharing swag codes. It used to be prohibited/result in accounts being banned, but now that I had a chance to search for a direct link, I see that the terms appear to have changed per the help menu (I’m still looking for a direct link) :

    "Can Swag Codes be shared between users?

    YES! Feel free to share active Swag Codes. Tell your friends, post it on your Facebook wall, Tweet it to your followers; let everyone know the active Swag Code. This will allow everyone can take advantage of the bonus Swag Bucks!

    Don’t worry, there will be no repercussions for posting active Swag Codes. This will not negatively impact your account in any way.

    As a reminder, sign-up codes and randomized codes may not be shared."

    You appear to be more up to speed on the new swag code rules than me (until today I wasn’t aware of any changes other than being allowed to say when a new code was out… which also allowed us to link to their Facebook page which always has links to the code). So, the ‘new’ policy I posted earlier clearly states that we can NOW post universal codes that are not one-time use… but where did you find any official policy on which SB website pages we can link to? The last part (“just not the link to the one time use ones, only the link to the sb page”) is a bit unclear to me/say the opposite about what we can link to outside of their Facebook page (unless you mean ‘only the link to the sb FB page’?). I’m hesitant to post any direct links to codes on the SB website (not their FB page) without seeing their specific policy.

    BTW: the 3rd code is out now (one-time use)

    OK, no problem… that’s my best understanding of all this right now too… so everyone should now feel free to share multiple-use codes in this thread. Thanks @briarycliffs for putting this issue on the table. I know I PM’ed another member a long while back warning that their account could be banned for posting codes, so I hope they also see this and know that that is no longer true.

    The 5th code is Wint3rCoat. It is supposed to be redeemed in the button but I only realized that after I redeemed it successfully through the app.

    There is one code left. It will probably be released at 7pm??? (assuming the 1/2 hour is when the last code expires, not when it’s released).

    • About a month ago I mentioned that the new “buy SB” program had been officially announced… today I noticed that it’s perma-link was missing on the homepage, and when I click the link in my previous post, I get an error page that says “This feature is currently unavailable for you.” That’s weird because I was part of the beta program, so I’m not sure why it suddenly wouldn’t be available to me now/after weeks of being live… or maybe they pulled it completely for now or permanently. Odd.

    • The higher value Coffee Mate online offer from last month is back…

      Purchase the Coffee-mate® Original Powder Coffee Creamer, 35 oz 2-pack and earn 2,200 SB (it still costs $10.41).

      Purchase must be made online at Walmart .com. In-store purchases and in-store pickup purchases are not eligible for SB. To qualify for SB you must purchase the Coffee-mate® Original Powder Coffee Creamer, 35 oz 2-pack. Single products purchased across multiple transactions are not eligible for SB.

      SB for this offer can only be earned once.

      To be eligible for SB, you must upload your receipt via this page.

      Purchase must be made between January 17, 2018 and January 25, 2018. Receipt must be uploaded by 11:30 pm Pacific Time on January 25, 2018. Purchases made outside of the listed dates are not eligible for SB. Your SB will be credited within 30 days of receipt of your upload.

      Uploaded receipts are not eligible for SB if linked to other promotions.

    • Registration is open for the next Swago board: the board is worth $5 maximum, and includes the bonus wheel. The board is active from January 21 at 12AM PT through January 28 at 6PM PT.

    • The ever expanding push to get folks to use the swag button continues with the “SwagButton Referral Program Announcement:” an extra 100 SB bonus to members who successfully refer other users to add the SwagButton to their browser
      … now includes a custom link that members can promote and share… Referred Users must add the SwagButton on their laptop or desktop, via Members’ customized Extension Referral Link. In addition, Referred Users must keep the SwagButton active for an initial period of usage. Our systems evaluate activity from Referred Users over a period of 30 days.
      …Over the past 6 months, Swagbucks added a feature to the SwagButton that automatically applies the best coupon code to online orders. This feature is supported at most of the popular stores that offer coupon codes
      …On top of the savings from coupons, Swagbucks members also receive SB (cash back) on their orders. But what’s also exciting about this enhancement to the SwagButton is that a user does not have to be a member to utilize the coupon-finding application.
      …you can earn the 100 SB Bonus AND the 300 SB New Referral Bonus AND the 10% Lifetime Earning Referral awards on all your referrals

    @fivetalents said in Swagbucks Tips, Offers & Discussion Thread:

    They added an SB to all of the Watch videos on PC, and they run on auto-mode.

    After nearly 6 weeks, not only has this 1 SB bonus on all PC Watch video sets been removed, the sets are now paying worse than they did prior to the bonus:

    • Pre-bonus: 1 SB = watch 12 videos, 2 SB = watch 22 videos, 3 SB = watch 28 videos
    • With the bonus: 2 SB = watch 12 videos, 3 SB = watch 22 videos, 4 SB = watch 28 videos
    • Post-bonus: 1 SB = watch 15 videos, 2 SB = watch 25 videos, 3 SB = watch 30 videos

    There are also far fewer categories and videos available in each category. This just happened this evening… so maybe they just ran out of videos during the “push” to max out points at the end of the team challenge and things will be restored tomorrow (I doubt it since they just usually pull videos they run out of and don’t increase the number of views required per set).

    😞

    Note: this too has been throttled. The most you can earn without spending money (i.e., buying a $50 MGC+ GC… of which there are no 20% off sales) is $0.35 compared to $0.75 from last month’s Shop Swago board. 😞

    Domino’s also has a 100 SB bonus for 1st tie buyers. If you plan to buy one, do it ASAP since the 20% off GameStop and IHop have already sold out

I’m not sure if you can do it again if you completed a previous offer(s) since the code is exactly the same. “Offer may only be redeemed once (1) per user,” but the higher/different reward value may or may not constitute a new/different offer.
