#Swagbucks - Earn with Swag Hearts Collector Bills

I am sharing the following information c/o Swagbucks, where I am a long-time member. This post contains my referral link and I may earn a SB bonus for sharing this post. Any opinions expressed are my own.


Sometimes you like somebody so much you just can’t find the words. Some people might think it’s cheesy to use somebody else’s words to convey feelings but wouldn’t that eliminate most of the greeting card industry? We can’t have that can we – especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner!

Not everyone is a fan of Valentine’s Day, some even not so fondly refer to it as Singles Awareness Day! However, there is one thing we can all agree on, we all love those small candy hearts! You know, those little pastel-colored candy hearts whose mouthfeel seems remarkably similar to chalk. It’s not so much about the taste or feel though, it’s all about the memories they trigger and how they make you feel.

Well Swagbucks has cooked up a batch of those candy hearts that are sure to make you feel great. They call them Swag Hearts!

Collect all 5 candy heart-themed Collector Bills and you’ll earn a 20 SB bonus!

For those of you who are wondering what Collector Bills are, I'm here to explain.

How Do I Get Collector Bills? 

It’s simple. Search the web through the Swagbucks Search Engine through Friday, February 12th at 11:59pm PT/Saturday, February 13th 2:59am ET, and when you get a search win, you may get a special Collector Bill valued at either:

8 SB
14 SB
25 SB
32 SB
39 SB

What happens when I get a Collector Bill? 

When you win a limited edition Collector Bill you’ll receive the value of the bill and the bill will be added to your “Collector’s Bill” ledger. Collect all 5 bills and you’ll instantly earn a 20 SB bonus!

Is it possible to collect the same Collector Bills multiple times?

Yes, you could collect any of the Collector Bills multiple times by February 12th, and you receive the value of the bill each time. After all, who doesn’t love candy!

Pro Tip: Default your search engine on your browser to Swagbucks to get Collectors Bills and SB every time you google "What time is the Super Bowl?" without even thinking about it.

Not yet a member of Swagbucks? What are you waiting for? I've been using it for years and it's a no-brainer, easy way to earn free gift cards. Click here to check it out.

Movie Trailer Tuesday - Ten Thousand Saints

Welcome to "Movie Trailer Tuesday - my weekly blog feature where I share movie/dvd recommendations by posting a quick blurb and movie trailer for you to check out.

What good movies have you recently watched? Feel free to share in the comments below...


This dark, coming-of-age story is full of family dysfunction, confusing relationships, and complicated decisions. After a personal tragedy, Jude goes to live with his weed-growing father in New York City. There, he gets involved with the "Straight Edge" scene (a form of punk rock where those involved abstain from drugs, alcohol, etc). When a close friend becomes pregnant, Jude takes an active role in helping her figure things out.

The movie is full of drug use and really heavy subject matter but underneath it all, you find likable characters who try to do the right things.

Ten Thousand Saints is definitely one for the grown-ups to watch. The flawed characters and the heartbreaking themes really stick with you.

Rated R and available on Netflix.
