Swagbucks 2nd Birthday TODAY

Today is Swagbuck's 2nd birthday, and that means lots of swagbucks will be given away today! If you are not yet signed up with Swagbucks today is a GREAT day to join! You can get an additional 3 points by entering this "bonus code" when signing up:
MELISSASCODE3 (valid through 3/4/10) and use this link to sign up. Plus you get 3 points just for signing up, so you'll get 6 points total!

If you're not familiar with Swagbucks, you earn "Swagbucks" by searching online and your Swagbucks can then be redeemed for gift cards or other prizes and merchandise. I typically redeem mine for Amazon gift cards. I signed up last January (2009) and have redeemed over $150 in Amazon gift cards just by using their search engine (which is powered by google)!

If you are new to Swagbucks, you will want to check out this post on how to make the most of your Swagbucks account.

If you've been using Swagbucks for awhile, here are some of the changes that are coming: Starting today, you will notice that your Swag Bucks in your account will be multiplied by 10 (as will the prices in the store, so for example, if you had 45 bucks in your account you will now have 450 SB; The Amazon which was 45 SB will now be 450 SB). NO prices are being raised on prizes (it will all be proportional - so have no fear about that), but what this split will allow them to do is to award bucks to users in ways that were not before imaginable (such as being logged into the toolbar, and viewing our special offers). So with that said,the sign up code that is worth 6, it will actually be worth 60 SB. You can find more info on the split here. Here are the other changes:

1) More ways to earn SwagBucks every day: With 3.0, users will be able to earn by having their toolbar visible on their browser and also by simply viewing our "No Obligation" special offers. This means that in addition to all the regular ways to earn, the more you are engaged with, the more you will earn!

2) New look home page and Swag Store & rewards store: Swagbucks 3.0 will include a revamped, cleaner interface that will provide a better user esperience.

3) Launch of the Swagstakes Portal: As you may know, Swagbucks currently runs about a dozen on-going sweepstakes (called Swagstakes) at any given time. With the launch of 3.0, there will be a brand new, fully stocked Swagstakes portal in which there will be dozens of Swagstakes running at all times! Some contests will be limited entry (meaning a set number of entries will be offered ) so the odds for a user to win are greater. The tentative list of items that will be offered during initial launch should include: $100 Amazon Gift Cards, Sony Bravia 32" TV, Amazon Kindle, Apple iPod Touch, Flip Ultra HD Camera, Panasonic Blu Ray with Remote, Apple iPad, Sopranos Complete Series Box Set, Rachel Ray 10 piece cookware set, Playstation 3 system + games bundle, Canon Powershot Camera, Seinfeld Complete Series DVD box Set, Vizio 22" LDC TV and plenty more!

Have fun Swagging today!
