What is a Swagbucks Referral Code?
There are 2 ways to register an account with Swagbucks:
- visit the Swagbucks website in the normal manner and sign-up
- visit the Swagbucks website via a referral link and sign-up
The main difference is that if you sign up via a referral link, that person gets a referral bonus.
Also, if you use the code “FreeGiftCards” during the referral registration process you get a bonus of 50 SB to get you started.
So, by using a referral code link both parties benefit.
How Much is the Referral Bonus?
In short, the existing member gets paid a bonus equal to 10% of the new member’s points – note that this 10% doesn’t get deducted from the new member’s points, they are extra points donated by Swagbucks.
The best part of the deal is that this 10% bonus is paid FOR LIFE – there is absolutely no time limit on this!
The 10% bonus used to be limited to the new member’s search engine earnings, but not anymore. It is now paid out for most activities on Swagbucks and the exceptions are the obvious and reasonable ones.

The current “improved” referral bonus scheme lasts until at least 25th February 2014 (Swagbucks’ 6th birthday) and no-one know whether it is going to be extended beyond that date or not – so you need to act fast to be assured of benefitting from it.
Any future changes will NOT affect any existing referrals. So, if you get referrals between now and 25th February 2014, you will still continue to earn a 10% bonus for life even if they scrap the referral scheme after that date.
