iSpy Search: Obscure Flags

Posted by on Tue, June 16th, 2015 at 7:00 am

It has recently come to my attention that all of our iSpy Search’s have had to do with obscure things. No seems to be complaining so we are going to keep rolling with it. This week’s Challenge will be slightly different, it will be more visually based. We want to introduce you to some of the… let’s just call them interesting, flags of nation’s around the world. We all know what the US and British flags look like but not few people can recognize the flag of a nation like Kyrgyzstan. Each tweet, in addition to containing the clue, will have a picture of a flag, of which you must identify the nation to which it belongs. Sounds simple, right?


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

  • Throughout the day we will tweet clues, which will contain an image of a flag, 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, the name of the nation 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 Swag Bucks. The numbers of winners for each clue and the amount of Swag Bucks 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 notification 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 Swag Bucks.
  • The first 3,000 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the second iSpy Search today will win 4 Swag Bucks.
  • The first 2,500 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the third iSpy Search today will win 5 Swag Bucks.
  • The first 3,000 people to enter the correct answer in the Swag Code box to the fourth iSpy Search today will win 4 Swag Bucks.

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.
