Yes, we have heard your pleas for an improved toolbar experience for Firefox browsers and are happy to announce it is finally here!

Beginning Thursday, April 3rd the Swagbucks Toolbar for Firefox will be upgraded and become the Swagbucks Extension.

Similar to our Chrome Extension, the extension makes your Swagbucks experience feel more seamless and intuitive.  You will immediately see these improvements:

  • Get Alerts when shopping online at a store that also offers SBs in return – never miss out on Shop & Earn SBs again! With the extension, many of the stores you already shop at will automatically notify you that you can be earning Swagbucks just by clicking “Activate Shop and Earn” and completing your purchase.
  • Watch and earn on SBTV right from the extension. The SBTV player can pop-out, so you can always find time to watch and earn during your spare moments online– without even going to Swagbucks.
  • Special Offers easily available.  Whether you want to complete a Special Offer like get better car insurance, or enter a tournament you’ve been waiting for, finding it on the Firefox Extension will save you that precious time.
  • Search: the Firefox Extension will let you to set Swagbucks as your default search engine, so you’re always being rewarded.
  • Swag Code Alerts! Receive an alert every time a Swag Code is available so you never miss out no matter where you are on the web.
