I added a link provided through my swagbucks acct to my siggy. If people click on the link and then sign up are they signing up under me? Then I earn the same thing they earn up to 100 swagbucks is that correct?
I started out with swagbucks a while back but forgot about them but I just added the toolbar so I should be back to earning more bucks soon.

You're going to love it. In about 7 months I have earned over $100 in Amazon gift cards. We've bought diaper covers, 20lbs rice, soup, honey, Mac's Snow Leopard and have enough left over for Christmas gifts. You just can't beat free. :thumbsup:

Swagbucks is great, and it's even sweeter if you can get people signed up under you. It's been great to have so many codes out this month, too!

If you have more question or are still unclear--I wrote a FAQ about swagbucks here on DS. Here it is

I've been seeing a whole lot of the same questions running around about Swagbucks... so I thought maybe I'll do the best I can with a Frequently Asked Questions post! If you have a good question you think should be added (or something that may need a correction) feel free to reply!

Let's ALL get earning those swagbucks! Woooooot!


Q) What the HECK is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks.com is (in essence) a paid to search program.. with a twist. You do searches (just like one would use yahoo or google) and randomly throughout the day you'll be rewarded with Swagbucks (which work like points). Swagbucks can be "cashed in" for rewards like giftcards to Target or Amazon.com (plus lots more), sports memorabilia, video games, etc. Swagbucks have no monetary value though (so there's no option to get a check rather than buy a giftcard).

Q) Does it cost to join or receive rewards?
100% free to join. I've only ever gotten e-giftcards (for amazon.com) so there was no charge whatsoever. I honestly have no idea about say, a bass guitar if they charge shipping or not.

Q) It says I need a swagcode to join. What's that?
Swagcodes are keywords that are put out by Swagbucks.com so you can earn automatic points rather than earning points by searching. You don't need to enter anything in in order to join though.

Q) Does Swagbucks have a referral program?
Yes, they do. For every referral you have, Swagbucks will match their swagbucks up to 100 swagbucks (so after your referral earns 100 you don't earn anything from them). So, say I have a referral who earned 2 Swagbucks on a search--that means that I also earned 2 Swagbucks. REMINDER ABOUT DIAPERSWAPPERS RULES: You may NOT post your referral link in posts unless very specifically asked or else it is considered spam. You MAY have your referral link in your signature, but you may not point it out ("see my signature for a referral link"). Saying "PM me for a referral link" in a post is just as good as posting it. These are the rules here.. and are to be respected. :thumbsup:

Q) Do I have to download the search toolbar?
You can either search (after joining) by going to www.swagbucks.com OR you can download their toolbar and it just replaces my google/yahoo/etc. bar in Firefox. No virus warnings or any issues whatsoever on my computer.

Q) How many searches should I be doing a day?
I do searches all day long. However, do not do too many searches back to back (like rapid fire) or Swagbucks will think you are some kind of spambot and you'll NEVER get Swagbucks. This is what happened to DH. On average winning happens 2-3 times during the course of a day. Some searches you'll receive only 1 buck... but sometimes you may get 2,3 or even 20 swagbucks for a search!

Q)So, what should I be search for? Are there keywords that always work?
GOOD question. For the most part, swagbucks are random. Some words may get a swagbuck for one person, and not for the other. However--in my experience, I've found that mainly proper names do pretty well consistently with winning Swagbucks (So, search for your name, your DD's name.. or any other proper nouns). We like to share when a word does work for us because it MAY just work for you too! But, for the most part, they're random.

Q) What's a swagcode and how do I enter them?
Swagcodes are released by Swagbucks.com. They earn you Swagbucks instantly rather than having to do searches in hopes of a swagbuck. They normally have a quick expiration on them, so if you see one, go on and enter it in then. Where do you enter them, you may ask? Here's how I do it: Go to Promote on the top of the screen (black menu bar) after you do a search. Then I go to "Your Swagbucks" (it's in a grey menu bar a little lower)--then you should see a place that says "have a swagcode".. enter it in here. Swagcodes are case-sensitive and always click "Gimmie" rather than enter. I've entered swagcodes and thought I didn't get anything, but then a day later they'll show up.. so some are not instant.

Q) Is it legit? Have you earned anything?
Yes. It is legit.. or I wouldn't be going on and on about it. lol. I have received many giftcards to Amazon.com using my Swagbucks and made purchases very easily. If you order something the shipping is free.

Yep, as long as your referrals code with your referral # is in the siggy, then you are good to go. The only time I have not gotten someone's referral (that I know of) is when someone told me they signed up under me on my widget on facebook.
