I love swagbucks! It’s like they are the lottery and they “loosen their slots” on Fridays. Basically, how Swag Bucks works is you use them for your search engine. They are powered by Google and Sometimes when you search, you randomly will get a message “You’ve Won 7 Swagbucks” or some other amount. Sign up for Swagbucks here. Not a member yet? Sign up through my referral link and enter the code MEMORIALDAY when prompted – it’ll pad your account with an extra 50 Swag Bucks on top of the 30 that everyone starts with.

Right now, donate your Swags to United Way of Western Alabama to aid in the relief efforts of tornado victims!

It takes 450 swags to get a $5 gift card – my brother is a typical guy doing searches for college, and gets 1 $5 gift card per month.  I get much more than that, since you can refer people and get points for referring people.  So refer your friends too!

MORE Ways to earn swags then just doing your regular daily searches:

Online polls: Don’t forget you can get a Swagbuck every day at online polls. These are one-click easy polls to take.

Share Your Birthday: Enter your birthday and get 50 free swag bucks on your birthday!

Trading in Cell Phones and Video Games: You can earn Swag Bucks for each phone you trade-in up to 3,000 Swag Bucks per phone; there is no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

Finding Swag Codes Sometimes swag codes are released on their Twitter, Facebook, or blog, and I can’t tell you the codes or they’d close my account, but I CAN notify you when they’re released so you can find the code yourself!

Inviting your friends to join For every Swag Buck they win searching the web, you’ll win the same amount! Win up to 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral!

Playing Games Play games for free and you will randomly earn from 1-5 Swag Bucks or you can also buy into tournaments where you risk a small amount of Swag Bucks for the chance to earn a large amount.

Watching videos I haven’t had good luck with this method.

Sending in prize photos and videos 10 Swag Bucks for a photo of you with your prize, 20 swags for a video of you opening your prize! Upload the video to and send the url link of your video to to claim your swags.

For full disclosure, I must state that I absolutely love Arby’s and Subway! Honestly, I probably eat at both places equally during the year.  So when you read the following, don’t think I am saying this because I don’t like Subway.  I love Subway and infact I worked at Subway  (I was also once a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver, a Sonic car hop, and so yes I have done the fast food circuit!)

Anyways, I tried the new Subway chicken salad sub.  It was alright.  I noticed immediately that the apples were soggy and so were the grapes.  I didn’t even finish my sandwich.

The next night I headed over to Arby’s and I tried the Arby’s chicken salad wrap.  It was fantastic.  There were a lot of apples and grapes in it, and they were extremely crisp. I would buy it again.   There is no comparison, it really is better.

Hip-hip-hooray! Right now you can head over to the Arby’s facebok page for a FREE Arby’s Market Fresh sandwich when you purchase a 22 oz Pepsi drink coupon!  What’s in it? Whole grain flatbread with quality ingredients like diced apples, grapes, celery, pecans and grilled chicken.

Also, you can vote for whether you like Arby’s or Subway’s sandwich the best. For every vote, Arby’s is donating $1 to No Hungry Kid!

To Enter: Head on over to my Facebook Giveaway page!  Entering is easy there.

BE AWARE: entering works best on Internet Explorer, not the new Firefox 4.  Click on the tab on the left-hand side that says $15 Arbys Giveaway if you can’t see where to enter.

Let me know if you like that new way of entering giveaways better, or contest burner.
