Starbucks and Swagbucks go together like sugar and cream
A lot of bloggers love Starbucks and I am one of them. A comfy chair, free Wi-Fi and caffeine to fuel an afternoon (or sometimes even a full day) or writing.
What isn’t so nice about Starbucks, is the price. My personal favorite, the caramel macchiato runs just under $5 for a grande. And that is where Swagbucks (and a few saving tips) come in and save the day.
For 500 Swag Bucks I can get a $5 Starbucks’ e-card. If I indulge myself in a caramel macchiato fueled afternoon of writing once a week that means I need to earn 2000 Swag Bucks a month to have my habit paid in full. To do that really only takes 2 steps per day.
How to Earn $20 A Month in Starbucks ecards from Swagbucks each month
Join Bing Rewards; Yes this is an article for Swagbucks and I am telling you to join another point program. Here is my reasoning. You can earn 16 points a day on Bing Rewards in under 2 minutes. Once you hit gold status you can cash in 475 points to receive a Swagbucks code worth 500 Swag Bucks. So every month this gives you 500 Swag bucks (click here to join Bing Rewards)
Download the Swagbucks App; Download the Swagbucks App to any device you have and start watching the videos. Unlike Swag Bucks TV on your computer these videos run continuously needing you only to check to see if they have paused once and a while. Daily you can earn 50 points this way. In a month you would earn 1500 Swag bucks
Just two actions and you have your 2000 points needed for $20 in Starbucks e-cards
Plus: You can earn even more Swagbucks by taking part in more activities such as, Daily poll, Daily NOSO, Daily toolbar usage point. Use the toolbar to earn random Swag Bucks each day. Follow Swagbucks on Facebook and enter the Swag codes they share on pretty much a daily basis. Shop through Swagbucks. Buy you daily deals through Swagbucks. Watch Swagbucks TV on your laptop. Fill out surveys. Do daily activities. All these things will lead to more free coffee.
How To Make the Swagbucks earned gift cards go further at Starbucks
Starbucks has a wonderful rewards program called My Starbucks Rewards. To become a member all you need to do is pick up an physical gift card at Starbucks and then register it online. Keep this card, and transfer all your Swagbucks earned e-gift cards to it, and then watch your reward points grow. The program will also start emailing you codes good for ½ off coffees, or buy one get one deals and a free drink on your birthday and more.
Once you Gold Status the deals get even better, like free refills (basic coffee only), and free drinks or food for every 16 stars you earn.
One last way to make those Swagbucks earned gift cards go further is to watch out for their annual sales on holiday drinks around Christmas time, and frappachinos in the spring.
Starbucks and Swagbucks the two work together wonderfully to keep coffee lover’s everywhere happy.
