Have You Hugged Your Swag Today?

Search & WinIt's Friday, and you know what that means!?  It's Mega Swagbucks Day!

So what's the deal with Swagbucks?
Basically, they give you points for doing things online that you'd be doing anyway, like searching the internet.  Just use their search engine and you could win points.  They also give you points for other things like surveys or even for buying deals on Groupon or Living Social.  You can even get points for printing and using coupons! How bout that?

Normally, Swagbucks starts out  new users with 30 Swagbucks, but right now they are running a promotion to encourage new users (and everyone else) to Help Japan.  When you join Swagbucks,  and enter the code HelpJapan they will give you a bonus 50 Swagbucks (through midnight May 2), for a total of 80 Swagbucks to start (you only need 450 to snag a $5 Amazon card).

So what's the Help Japan thing about? Right now you can donate your Swagbucks (any amount) to Help the victims of the Japan earthquakes.  Swagbucks is collecting them and will add them all up and make a huge donation.
