Swagbucks Tips & Tricks: How to Default Your Search Engines

Posted by on Mon, September 8th, 2014 at 5:59 am

Good morning, Swaggernauts!

One of the best ways to earn Swag Bucks (and find the information you seek) is to use Swagbucks Search! And now that our search results are powered by Yahoo – the results are even better than before!

To make sure that you’re giving yourself the chance to win SB with each search, we recommend defaulting your search engine to search.swagbucks.com!

And to make this even sweeter, we’d like to announce our next great promotion: DEFAULT YOUR ENGINES!

Do you want to become 1,000 SB or even 5,000 SB richer? Of course you do – silly of us for asking!

Here are the details:

  • The promotion runs from September 8th – September 12th
  • 20 prizes of 1,000 SB
  • 1 grand prize of 5,000 SB
  • Get up to 5 entries each day (25 total)
  • Winners will be announced on September 17th, 2014

Getting an entry is simple:

  • Default your search engine to the Swagbucks search (detailed instructions for each browser below)
  • Search from the address bar at the top of the page (not the “Search and Earn” field that’s underneath the navigation bar).
  • You’ll get one entry into the drawing every day for each search you make from the address bar, up to 5 times a day! (up to 25 entries)

 

Defaulting your Search Engine in Chrome

  1. Go to Settings on your Chrome browser (the 3 lines on the top right of the browser)
  2. Click on “Settings” from the dropdown list
  3. Click on “Manage Search Engines”
  4. Look for Swagbucks under “Other Search Engines”
  5. Click “Make Default”

Defaulting your Search Engine in Firefox

  1. Go to your browser search field, this can be found on the right of your address bar, and click the drop menu and look for Swagbucks
  2. Click on Swagbucks
*Please Note: If you’ve never performed a search from search.swagbucks.com you may not see Swagbucks in the list.   Perform a search from Search.Swagbucks.com and then follow the instructions to set it as your default search engine.

Defaulting your Search Engine in Internet Explorer
  1. Go to Search.Swagbucks.com
  2. Click the down arrow in the address bar
  3. Click on the magnifying glass
  4. Click “Add”

So Swaggernauts…Default Your Engines!!!!
