Signing up earns you 30 swag bucks. During the registration you can earn even more swag bucks. I believe 10 for downloading the tool bar and 15 for posting a picture.
To redeem a $5 Amazon gift card, you need 450 swagbucks which can easily be achieved in 3 days.
Tips to earning Swag Bucks
- SwagBucks Toolbar - everyday when you open your web browser you'll be awarded 1 Swag Buck
- NOSO - No Obligation Special Offers, each day go to this, skip each one then when you're done, fill out the captcha. 2 Swag Bucks.
- Search - You can use the toolbar's search or just go to the search page. You can earn 7-50 swag bucks from searching each search. Most of the time, I get awarded 2 times a day from searching. However once I got awarded 3 times in a day for 10/10/39 swagbucks!
- Messages - If you log in daily you'll be sent PM's with Limited Time Offers each day to earn 3 Swag Bucks.
- Trusted Surveys - You can earn 50-150 Swag Bucks from completing surveys. However most of the time they will be over quota or you aren't exactly eligible. If this happens you'll be awarded 1 Swag Buck only.
- Swag Bucks TV - Now this is my real money maker. I can earn up to 150 Swag Bucks from this alone! EACH DAY! 150 is the maximum daily limit. You can find some tips and tricks on how to get 150 SB easily from google ;)
- Swag Codes - Every once in a while, Swag Bucks will post out Swag Codes that will expire in about 1.5 hours after posting. They can be posted on their Twitter, Facebook or Blog. I personally am subscribed to SwagBucksTricks mailing list and receive e-mails directly onto my blackberry every time a new code is available. You can check that out here.
- Referrals - If you refer people to Swag Bucks using your referral link you can earn up to 1000 SB. However; you only earn SB when they get SB from searching only.
