Hacking Swagbucks: Limited-Entry Swagstakes

OK, maybe it’s not a true way to hack SwagBucks, but it is a way to increase the bang you get for your SwagBucks, so I’m calling it a SwagBucks hack anyway. :) Truly hacking SwagBucks would be all kinds of illegal and unethical, plus it would get me banned, and that’s the last thing I want!

Have you noticed SwagBucks’ new limited-entry Swagstakes? To see what they’re offering now, just click on this link, then up at the veeery top of the page, hover over Rewards, click on Swagstakes, then click on Limited Entry in the left-hand menu. I was happy to see these, as even someone with my limited love for math knows, if the number of entries in a given lottery is limited, your chances of winning are increased. And of course, the fewer the entries, the better the odds! But have you ever wondered just how good your odds actually are? After entering a handful of these swagstakes, I started to ponder exactly that question. As a result, I wound up making a spreadsheet that would help me calculate a few important numbers, in the hopes that I would invest my SwagBucks more wisely. Now I’m going to share it with you, so you can do the same!

Below is a screenshot of my spreadsheet, along with an explanation of how to use it. Click on the picture to make it bigger in your browser, so you can read it more easily.

Swagstakes Calculation Spreasheet

In the hopes that everyone will be able to use it, I’m making it available over on my Goodies/Downloads page, in Excel 97-2003, Excel 2007 and OpenOffice.org formats. If you have any questions or requests regarding this spreadsheet, please leave a comment and let me know!
