Every day, Swagbucks gives you an opportunity to earn some free SB. One of the ways that they do this is via Swag Codes.
In this article we will be discussing what Swag Codes are, the ways and times that Swag Codes are released, and how to find and redeem them.
- Swag Code Basics
A Swag Code is a word or phrase (without spaces) that you can redeem for bonus SB. Sometimes the phrase will include numbers.
Swag Code examples:
Swag Codes range in value.
Most codes are worth between 3 and 5 SB, but occasionally there are higher, or lower, value ones.
Swagbucks always tells you the value of a Code in the release post.
Swag Codes are usually released once a day, apart from special Event days. However, there can be days where no Swag Codes are released and others when there are extra Codes.
Read below for a more detailed explanation about Swag Code events.
Swag Codes are often location sensitive so check that the Code is valid for your country.
You can get notification about Swag Codes in a few different ways.
- Via the Swagbutton. (Computer only)
- Via the Swagbucks app (Android only in UK). Please note that UK users often get notifications from the app for US codes which can cause some confusion.
- Checking the Reddit Swag Code Bot. This won’t notify you (unless you set up a monitor or IFTTT) but it’s a good place to check for active codes.
- Via Twitter
- Follow the official Swagbucks account on the Twitter app and set it to notify you for every post. This won’t just be Swag Codes, but they’ll be included.
- There are other, unofficial, Twitter accounts that post active codes. To get notified by them, follow one of the accounts on the Twitter app and set it to notify you for every post.
- If you’re a Facebook user, in the UK, join our Facebook group and turn on notifications for the pinned post.

Swag Codes usually remain valid for an hour after they go live. Sometimes this is extended for up to two hours and rarely beyond that.
During some Swag Code events, Swag Codes are limited not by time, but by the number of redemptions. All information relating to the expiration of the Code is posted in the release post.
Swag Codes can be redeemed by entering the Code into the Swag Code box in the:
- top navigation menu of swagbucks.com;
- or the Swagbucks app.
Sometimes, Swagbucks will post a code that is unique to ever user. These are called Stealth codes and cannot be shared.
To get a Stealth code, you have to visit the page that Swagbucks directs you to. The link will be included in the release post.
About once a month, Swagbucks has a Swag Code Extravaganza day. On these days, 6 individual codes are posted throughout the day, adding up to a total of 40 SB.
Extravaganzas tend to run from 9 AM, to 6PM, with a new code posted every 2 hours.
You can see the details of all the previous Extravaganzas here.
Most weeks, on a Tuesday, Swagbucks runs a Swag Code Event on Twitter. It’s called iSpy as clues are posted and, to get the Code, you have to search and figure out the answer.
These codes are not limited by time, but by redemptions.
A reminder is tweeted 5 minutes before every new clue.
As these are limited by redemptions, Swagbucks asks that they are not shared anywhere online. This is to keep it fair to those who do the work to solve the clues.
