1. What is the best way to earn more Swag Bucks? (top)
The best way to earn Swag Bucks is to share your referral link. For every referral you earn matching point up to 1,000 when they win by searching. To earn the most each day, make sure to visit the Daily Poll, Open the toolbar, and do the NOSO. Also, check “Ad Rewards” under special offer as they generally have new videos each day, which will earn you an extra swagbuck or two.
2. How important are Swag Codes, and where can I find a Swag Code? (top)
In the overall scheme of things Swag Codes are just an extra little bonus codes. They are nice, but they are not the main way to earn Swag Bucks. There are several different places that Swag Codes show up (blog, facebook, twitter, and Swidget). To learn more, visit the Swag Code Guide.
3. Is the Swagbucks search engine just as good as google? (top)
Yes! Swagbucks.com features a best in trade search feed, which includes results from Google & Ask.com. If you're already searching the web, why not win prizes, while continuing to receive the same great results!
4. Which Search and Win site should I use and what is a partner site? (top)
At the end of August 2012 Swagbucks discontinued almost all of their partner sites for bands. (The only one left is searchwithkiss). The points that were earned at these sites were converted into generic Swag Bucks. If you were saving for a specific prize, hopefully you got it before they changed over!
There are almost 200 other search and win sites powered by Swagbucks (Called partner sites). These sites generally promote specific sport teams or organizations. Unless you are set on a specific prize from an artist or sports team, you should use the default swagbucks.com page since prizes at the main swagbucks site are normally cheaper. Another downside to partner sites is that you cannot combine Swagbucks from the partner sites to use on Swagbucks.com. Partner bucks can only be used on that specific search and win site.

5. Why do I see the rules screen/iframe error when searching? (top)
When you see the rules screen it generally means Swagbucks has detects unnatural searching (i.e - searching too quickly just earn points). Using Swagbucks normally is the best way to earn points. If this happens too many times it might lead to a suspension of your account.
If you see a error saying "You may not access Swagbucks.com content via an iFrame. Please go directly to Swagbucks.com to continue your Swag Bucks experience", it means you either are visiting or visited a website that loads Swagbucks in an iframe (for example, stay away from swagbucks.wetpaint.com, since this will give you the iframe error). You may continue to get the error for part of the day while trying to use Swagbucks.com normally. If the problems still occurs the next day, contact Swagbucks for help. (They might take the iframe error as trying to cheat the system)
