iSpy Search: #GivingTuesday

Posted by on Tue, December 1st, 2015 at 7:50 am

ispythumbBlack Friday and Cyber Monday are over. We shopped and we shopped and we shopped and now hopefully we have all the things we want but not everyone is so lucky. 92nd Street Y in New York City had the perfect solution to this explosion of our consumer culture, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving became the National Day of Giving, fondly called #GivingTuesday. It’s a simple idea, just find a way to come together with friends, family, or community and give something back. This week’s iSpy Search is about philanthropists that have given so much of their wealth to so many worthy causes. Hopefully, this week’s iSpy Search inspires you to give back.


Here’s a quick reminder how to participate in iSpy Search:

  • Throughout the day we will tweet clues via @Swagbucks on Twitter with a Swag Search link to help you spot the answer (remember to click the Swag Search link, aside from spotting the answer you might just get a search win).
  • As soon as you solve the clue enter the answer, last name only in ALL CAPS in the Swag Code box. If you are among the first x-number of people to enter the code correctly, you will be instantly awarded x-number of SB. The numbers of winners for each clue and the amount of SB won will change but will be announced prior to the question.
  • Each question has a new batch of winners – you have the potential to win a total of 16 SB today from iSpy Search alone! Each question is open to all Swagbucks members in all countries.
  • Please do not share the iSpy Search answers on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, or other social media channels. These are wholly different than our daily Swag Codes and are for our users who do the work. Similarly, there will be neither mobile push notifications nor SwagButton notifications when the answers are active.

Hints on how to win:

  • Follow @Swagbucks on Twitter.
  • Use the Swag Search link in the clue to find the answer (and possibly get a search win)

Today’s iSpy Search breakdown:

  • The first 4,000 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the first iSpy Search today will win 3 SB.
  • The first 3,000 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the second iSpy Search today will win 4 SB.
  • The first 2,500 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the third iSpy Search today will win 5 SB.
  • The first 3,000 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the fourth iSpy Search today will win 4 SB.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below and we will do our best to answer. We look forward to your feedback throughout the day.
