I’ve been using Swagbucks since the beginning of 2012, and have earned over $2500 in rewards in the two years since. I wish I had a clue what I was doing when I started, because that would be a much higher number! Most days, I now earn $5 or more with very little effort.
Swagbucks is a rewards and loyalty site that allows users to earn Swag Bucks for things such as searches, watching videos, playing games and shopping online. These can be redeemed for gift cards and rewards at their website. Since their launch in 2008, they’ve given away more than $45 million dollars in rewards!
Once joining, the simplest way to earn is by installing their Chrome extension. The Chrome extension allows you a daily point for using it, search the web to earn rewards, and check for swagcodes. You can also watch videos in the extension. Videos are worth 3 swag bucks for every ten videos, up to 150 swag bucks per day. If you’re sitting at your computer, you can click through to the next video once the percentage bar increases rather than watching the whole video.
Another way to earn by watching videos is by downloading the Swagbucks apps in the app store. SBTV allows you to earn 2 swag bucks for every 5 videos you watch. EntertaiNow allows you to earn 2 swag bucks for every 10 videos. Both of these will run continuously once you start them. If you’re sitting at your phone while doing these, you can also fast forward thru the videos. You can earn 50 swagbucks for SBTV and 40 for EntertainNow each day. Another 10 swagbucks can be earned by playing games daily. Every 2 games you play will earn 2 swag bucks.
Consider yourself a savvy shopper? Swagbucks is a great way to make your dollar go further. You can print coupons at the Swagbucks website that are worth 10 swag bucks once you redeem them in store. Additionally, if you’re an online shopper, you can earn swag bucks per dollar spent online at stores like Old Navy, Walmart, Amazon and more!
Activating your daily goal allows you to earn bonus credits for reaching a goal amount each day. There are two tiers of bonuses. The first allows you to qualify for weekly and monthly goals (meet your goal daily for a month and get an extra 300 swagbucks!) as well as gives you an extra 10% for meeting it. The second, larger goal will yield you an additional 10% bonus for meeting it. Completing both for an entire month can easily earn you an extra $10 worth of swagbucks each month!
Swagbucks also offers a Discover tab. Here you’ll find special offers such as downloading apps, participating in free trials and watching more videos. These can be high value offers, so this is a great place to explore!
Surveys are another way to earn credits and yield anywhere from 25 to 125 swag bucks. I usually try for the highest value surveys that list the smallest amount of time and work through the list. Even if you don’t qualify for each survey, you’ll earn a swag buck for trying.
One final tip, join Bing Rewards . A similar program, you can earn rewards for searching. You can rapidly quick through suggested searches in the side panel to earn your daily point allotment. You can also perform searches on your mobile phone. Points earned there can be redeemed for swagcodes worth 500 swagbucks! You can easily earn a code every two weeks, and sooner once you reach gold level or if you refer your friends!
With practice, Swagbucks can be a highly rewarding way to spend time online. Whether you need extra money for gifts, paying bills, or planning for vacations, these tips will help you reach your goals sooner!
