Make money with Swagbucks
It has weird name but Swagbucks is a reward website that gives you 'swagbucks' for doing searches, playing games, completing surveys and even watching TV adverts.
Once you get enough swagbucks to convert into a voucher, paypal payment or prize (eg iPod shuffle), you click the 'snag this' button, wait a few days for it to process, and swagbucks will send you an e-mail to tell you it’s ready to collect from the account.
Is Swagbucks a scam?
I can honestly say that it isn't., before I signed up to swagbucks I searched ‘Is Swagbucks a scam?’
The results then were no, and from personal experience, and cash in hand, I totally agree.
How much have I earned?
I know this is what everyone wants to know and to date I am earning on average £50 per month in Amazon Vouchers, it does what it says on the tin.
It is one of the best ways to earn free money / prizes online.
How much does it cost?
NOTHING - It's FREE to join and you get reimbursed for your time doing searches, viewing videos, completing surveys and tasks.
All you need is to be a citizen of the US, Canada, UK, Australia and at least 13 years of age.
You are never going to become a millionaire or be able to give up your day job......but for 1-2 hours of your time you could earn an extra £30 - 50 a month. I do it during lunch time and and an hour in the evening.
The easiest way to earn points is to install the Swagbucks toolbar and use it instead of Google and you can earn random amounts from 1 to 59 swagbucks, or you can sign in to swagbucks and do searches directly on the Swagbucks homepage.
Usually you will get up to 4 search wins per day, I mostly get one in the morning, afternoon, evening and later at night. You don’t have to search anything special, just normal everyday terms as ‘Whats on TV tonight?’ or ‘How to cook a chicken?’ depending on what you yourself would search. If you’re lucky you will get one of these woohoo!
Other ways to earn your Bucks......Daily Clicks?
- Toolbar - This will give you 1 buck every time you sign in through it, and makes earning those points for searching very easy.
- Daily Poll - This will give you 1 buck each time you participate, the questions are very easy and are of no use to anyone, for example ‘Do you own a dog? Yes or No = 1Buck
- NOSO - This stands for ‘No Obligation Special Offers ‘. The great thing is, you are under no obligation to undertake any of the offers. Just keep clicking skip to next offer and at the end you will earn 2 Bucks
- Bonus Daily Bucks are the Games - Play games for free and earn – Lots of choice, wordgames, golf, memory, something for everyone. Simply play and Submit your score, and for every 2 games you play you will received 2 SBs, up to a maximum of 10 SBs per day. No catch, free money again
Before you know it, you have earned 14 Bucks for the daily checklist, and up to 59 for a search four times daily. Even if you use the site only for Daily Clicks, they soon add up.
Mega SwagBucks Day is every Friday when you have a greater chance of winning big, so something that would get 9SBs would now earn you 29SBs.
Top Tip - When you use the Swagbucks search, be normal. Don’t search one after the other in quick succession waiting for a win as that can be flagged, and don’t enter rubbish like ‘kofi9sjdi’ as this will also be flagged as unnatural search terms. You could be banned from searching for taking advantage
Shop and Earn For anyone who has used a ‘Quidco’ style site before, this is exactly the same. Get paid to shop basically. If you are buying online anyway, why not have a quick look here to see if the shop is listed, and then click on the link and shop as normal. You will received Swagbucks based on your total spend, ie 5SBs per pound at Wallis, or 3SBs per pound at argos. Lots of store are listed with more being added all the time, again you are earning extra income for something you were doing anyway
Special Offers These are additional screens where even more Swagbucks can be earned. They contain Surveys, Videos, email sign ups and ‘like us’ on Facebook offers which all earn you Swagbucks. Do as many or as little as you like
Swagbucks TV aka SBTV Watch videos online and earn 3 SBs for every 10 watched, this is paid for by the advert which is shown before the video selected. You have to watch around 30 to 45 seconds for the SBTV meter to go up and then you can move on to the next one. Once at 100% you will get your SBs. There are lots to watch from style and fashion videos to comedy central jokes
Tasks These can be easy or hard depending on the amount of Swagbucks paid for them, some are find a telephone number for a business, or what results do you get for searching a particular phrase. All you need to do is fill up the meter to 100% and then you are awarded 20SBs
Trusted Surveys These are send to you periodically throughout the day and are worth anything from 20SBs to 500SBs. They can be on mobile phones, what you see at the cinema, basically whatever the swagbucks partners are interested in
Top Tip – Complete them truthfully and don’t give any answers you think they want to hear as this is a fast way of getting banned from the surveys
