SwagBucks is an online platform where you can earn “SB” (or in other words…. SwagBucks) to redeem for gift cards or a cash out to your PayPal account! Since I have had a lot of free time on my hands during quarantine, I thought I would take the opportunity to foster my SB account to start earning a little more side cash. Emphasis on “side” cash.
SwagBucks is not in any way a true, viable source for income. Depending on what activities I do to earn SB, I can make maybe $3-$20 a day. It’s not a lot but I’m not using it as a way to pay for anything huge. In fact, I’m actually using it as a way to make a little more money for my first trip to Walt Disney World next year! Any money I make on it is essentially just a little savings account to use as spending money for Disney. And since I started a year in advance, I have plenty of time to rack up some money before I head over there! Over the lifetime of me using SwagBucks at this point in time, I have earned around $280!
You can earn SB in a number of ways. The biggest being by taking surveys, listed under the “Answer” tab on the left hand side! You won’t qualify for every single one, and most of them average 25-75 SB (which comes out to 25 cents and 75 cents respectively). But sometimes you will hit a JACKPOT with a survey that you qualify for and make 1,000 to 4,500 SB (which is $10-45)! I have been qualified for a few of these surveys that required me to do some more in-depth online discussions for the group over a span of three weeks and was able to earn $40 from doing it! They had simply asked me to check in once a week for three weeks to share my opinions on their ad campaigns. The exercises maybe took 15-20 minutes each time I logged in, but the reward was worth it in the end! Now those surveys are hard to find and sometimes even harder to get in to, but they do exist. Don’t bank on them though. Most of the SwagBucks that you will earn from surveys will come from doing the ones that don’t offer a ton of points and don’t take a lot of time.
Another way to earn is by adding the SwagButton to your home browser. What this does is that any time you come to an online store that is affiliated with SwagBucks, a banner will pop up in the top right corner and ask if you want to activate a cash back offer. The cash back comes in the form of SB! With all the online shopping I have been doing over the last year, this seemed like a very easy way to rack up the points because I was buying stuff from these stores that I was already going to purchase or needed. Using the SwagButton was just an added bonus of making the purchase. And another little perk of it is that the Button will act as a coupon locator! Once you go to the checkout page, it will search the site itself or other sites to find the best coupon for you and apply it to your cart! The Button will then read “Apply [X number it finds] Coupons” – click that and it will run through all of them quickly to find you the best one to apply to your cart! I love this function because 1) it takes out the work of finding a coupon, and 2) it takes out the hassle of going through expired coupons that I find on the internet myself. It’s literally a one-stop-shop kind of Button!
Third, I have been finding VERY good luck with the SB Discover page. Here they have offers from brands, apps, and stores that can help you gain a little more traction in earning SB. Specifically I have been taking advantage of the app offers because a lot of them offer INSANELY HIGH SB opportunities for downloading and playing a free app. In fact, this is how I found the myVEGAS apps that allowed me to save around $200 on my trip to Las Vegas over the summer! I think with apps alone, I have gained at least $65 in SwagBucks. By playing a free app. Ridiculous! It’s always one download per user and you have to be a first time user of the app to be eligible for the reward. But you will also want to check the Terms of the SB because sometimes it says you have to reach a certain level in the game within a certain time period, and some of those time periods make it impossible to play the game without spending something in their game’s store to give you that boost you need to reach that level in time. If that’s the case, just try your best to complete the level and if you can’t do it in the time allotted, just delete the app and cut your losses! I’ve done this a number of times and I regret nothing because I got to play a fun app and kept myself entertained. But there should be no reason for you to pay into these apps because this is not the point of SwagBucks! You’re there to earn, not to spend money on an app!
Lastly, and this one is the least amount earned but it keeps you earning during times that you can’t earn (like when you’re asleep or at work), and that is SB Watch. I pick one of the options from the top row (this is important because these are the ones that play on an uninterrupted loop), and just let it run. However, I do NOT suggest doing this if you are working on your computer because every time it switches between “activities”, then it will pop the page back up in front of your face. So definitely only use this option as a “pull up and leave alone” kind of option otherwise you will be consistently interrupted every 10 seconds. I also highly recommend doing this on a desktop computer and not on your phone or through the SD Watch app. If you do it through your phone, it overheats after a while and if you do it through the app, it doesn’t really play on repeat as easily.
