The Secret to Earning SwagBucks Quickly

What is SwagBucks?

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. I have taken the opportunity to foster my SB account to start earning a little more side cash. Emphasis on “side” cash. And now I want to show you how you can earn SwagBucks quickly too.

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 home purchases. Any money I make on it is just a little extra spending money for things like a robot vacuum. Over the lifetime of me using SwagBucks at this point in time, I have earned around $640! With around $400 of it being over the course of 2020 and 2021.

How can I earn SwagBucks quickly?

Earn SwagBucks quickly by answering surveys

Answer and complete surveys

You can earn SB in a number of ways. The most popular 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 $10-45!


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.

You can also the Swagbucks extesion called the SwagButton to earn Swagbucks points by shoppig on your faovirte onlie retailers. This is an example of the button in action on the shopDisney webstore page. after installig the SwagButton on to your browser, any time you enter an affiliated store online, a prompt will appear in the upper left corner of the page asking if you would like to activate the cash back option for that site! Every site will have a different percentage of cash back. Once activated, any purchase you make, you will get that percentage of cash back in the form of SwagBucks! The SwagButton is also great because at the checkout page, you can use the button to search the internet for coupon codes!

Add the SwagButton to your home browser

Another way to earn is by adding the SwagButton to your home browser. 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. Especially because I was buying stuff from these stores that I was already going to purchase from. Using the SwagButton was just an added bonus of making the purchase. And another little perk of it is that the Button will also act as a coupon locator. Once you go to the checkout page, 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. It’s literally a one-stop-shop kind of Button.

SwagBucks has adapted and adopted new ways for users to game SB. I have been finding a lot of luck on the Discover Page as well as the Play Page as these offers will have upwards of 5000 (equivalent to $50) in SB. This pictures shows the Discover page and the different sections of offers that users can find.

Third, I have been finding VERY good luck with the SB Discover page. On the Daily Discover page, they have offers from brands, apps, and stores with more SB earning opportunities. 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. [[Now you can actually find these games listed under the “Play” tab under the section “Mobile Games”.]] In fact, through all the methods of earning SwagBucks, this is the easiest and the most rewarding.

Playing these types of games for the rewards is also 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 $365 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. You will also want to check the Terms because sometimes it says you have to reach a certain level in the game within a certain time period. Some of those requirements 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 it and if you can’t do it in the time allotted, just delete the app and cut your losses. 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.

Want to get SB passively? Check out the Watch Page. This page contains content that users can click on and gain SB by watching the ads. Some of them offer one or two videos for 2 SB. But if you play any of the videos in the top row that have the yellow loop button on the bottom left hand of the picture, it will play ads on loop so you can literally walk away and forget about it! This won't gain you a lot of SB, but it's something to get you passive SB while you are at work or asleep. You can wake up to maybe 20 extra cents!

Use the Watch tab to earn when you’re “away”

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.
