I do the log in and log out thing as well. Also if you go to different computers and search a certain term, it'll give you another swagbuck, it's a hit or miss though.

if you search any time in between, very little chance to get anything.
This has worked best for me. I think there are fewer people on during those times.

From what I was reading on its website explanation... its a function of how much time elapsed since the last 'buck' was awarded... randomly calculated... so it might pay off to search late at night...

I don't understand how some people have gotten 100's of referrals from this though...

Another way to get bucks is thru codes... so if someone finds a swagcode (or whatever they are called) please post if it works, and everyone can take advantage of it. The website says 2/25 is its b-day and 5 codes will be given out... so might be some luck today

Edit: RATM just worked for 1 swagbuck

Please lets distinguish between swagcodes and searches.

OAR did not work for me as a swagcode.

To enter a swagcode, click on the big square that tells you how many swagbucks you have when you log in. This brings you to the My Account page. Then enter the code in the appropriate field on the right side of the page.

I don't get the whole swagcode thing. How do you find them?

They're posting 'swagcodes' on their blog, twitter account, and facebook page.

They appear to only be valid for a certain number of redemptions though.

"OAR" worked for me right away (1 SB), after getting 3 SB for "American Airlines" and 1 SB for the HappySwagDay code.
