Let's post successful Swagbucks codes here

Swagbucks pays bucks for searches and other stuff. Bucks are convertible to miles and other goodies. Not all searches produce bucks. Let's post the successful searches here, along with the number of bucks they produce.

Here is the conga and description of the program.



If this thread becomes popular, perhaps it could become a sticky. I don't know how that is accomplished - probably by a moderator?

Free southwest airlines credits 3 credits

Barclay 2 credits

free advantage mile for one swagbuck 1 credit
(Weird: "free aadvantage mile for one swagbuck" gave me no credit. But when I clicked on the suggested "free advantage mile for one swagbuck", I received the credit.)

It seems to be completely random, I searched all the above and got nothing. When I first signed up, I searched American Airlines and got 1 swagbuck. So there aren't magic words that reward everyone who searches that word.

Has anyone gotten more than one "hit" in a 24 hour period? This morning, I got 1 Swag Buck on "Peru", then I sat there for an hour (while watching tv) and just kept clicking on related searches and got nothing.

Is this a pyramid deal? Like every time my referral gets a Swag Buck, I get one too?

Guys, I think it's random.

Tiki, I get a couple a day. Each time you do a search off the home page, you have a small chance to get a SB. It is a pyramid, in that each time you earn a SB, your referrer gets one, up to 100.

It appears that there is occasionally a delay in the pop-up. You likely got it for the original search.

Nope, can't hurt, I guess. Nothing bad can come of it.

I'm up to 64 points. Hopefully, this site doesn't die off or change its rules before I cash out. It's worth noting that SB offers frequent flyer miles as a prize at an outrageously high exchange rate.

What's really odd is that the airlines have different prices on the miles.

1000 AS 825 SB
1000 AA 1150 SB
2000 DL 1180 SB
1500 US 1350 SB
2000 AA 1700 SB
3000 AS 1875 SB
3500 US 2350 SB
4000 DL 2360 SB
5000 AA 3400 SB
6000 DL 3545 SB
6000 AS 3680 SB
6500 US 3850 SB
9000 AS 5260 SB
9500 US 5350 SB
10000 AA 5700 SB
10000 DL 5910 SB

They are all different and make no sense. It takes forever to accumulate them too, I am up to 23 after 3 days so at a rate of 7 SB per day, that's 2555 in a year.

LSC is faster and more reliable now that miles are posting again, albeit after more elapsed time than before.
