Swagbucks is an online portal where being active earns you “Swag Bucks”. These bucks can be redeemed for things including CASH (via PayPal gift cards), gift cards like Amazon and Home Depot, and lots of other products in their Swag Store. 

Is Swagbucks Worth it?

The short answer is yes! In just over a month I was able to earn a $50 PayPal Cash card just for being active. How did I do this? Simple, I did everything I have listed below. If you are active on their site you can earn literally hundreds of Swag Bucks daily. 

How do I earn Swag Bucks?

The easiest way to earn Swag Bucks is to search, but…there are actually lots of other ways that you can earn too! Note: I have not listed every way you can earn Swag Bucks, only the easiest and most common. For a full list visit the Swagbucks website. 

1. Search the Web
The easiest and most popular way to earn Swag Bucks is to search the web. Anytime you want to search for something, instead of going to Google, visit the Swagbucks homepage and use their search engine instead. Every time you search you will have the chance to earn Swag Bucks. In general you can win up to 4 times a day searching, and the rewards range from around 7 Swag Bucks up to 50 Swag Bucks!

Searching Tip:  Instead of making searching easy by making Swag Bucks your home page make a search your homepage instead. How you ask? Easy!
-         Go to Swagbucks.com
- Search for something you search for a lot, or just something random like I love cookies!
- When the search results come up – make the search results page your homepage. (check your internet settings on how to change your home page if you don't know how)
- Now, every time you open your browser or click your home page button you will end up at that search page and have a chance to win Swag Bucks.
-          Keep it fresh, change your home page search every so often so you don’t get bored
I usually win Swag Bucks at least once a day just by opening my home page!

2. Daily Checklist

The daily checklist is actually 3 tasks:
a) Install and use the Swagbucks toolbar. The toolbar is easy to use and allows you to search from any webpage, so there is no need to go to the homepage to search. Plus, just for having it installed you get 1 Swagbuck a day.
b) View the No Obligations Special Offers page (NOSO) Visit the “NOSO” page to view special offers. You can look at all of the offers and not even sign up to one of them and earn 2 Swagbucks per day.
c) Vote in the daily poll. Every time you vote in the current poll you will earn 1 Swagbuck. If you miss a day you can go back and answer it, but you won't earn any Swagbucks.  

3. Watch Videos

I load SBTV from my toolbar, and use the “pop out” arrow at the top right of the viewer to pop it out from my browser. This allows me to continuously load content while on my computer; I don’t have to be online to do so. The Swagbucks meter fills up as you watch and when it reaches 100% you are awarded 3 Swag Bucks. Typically you earn 10% per video watched, so after 10 videos you are awarded 3 Swag Bucks. You can earn a maximum of 150 Swag Bucks per day watching videos. 

4. Take Surveys

Stop by the “Trusted Survey” dashboard daily to see if there are new surveys available. If you qualify for a survey you can earn anywhere from 60-175 Swagbucks (it could be more, but 175 is the highest I have seen). If you don’t qualify you will still get 1 Swag Buck just for trying! I don’t usually qualify for surveys, but it is worth the few minutes it takes to get my Swag Buck! 

5. Complete Special Offers

There are various different offers that you can complete to earn Swagbucks, and many of them are free. I have personally earned quite a few Swag Bucks this way, and I only completed free offers. If you complete a paid offer the rewards can be as high as 1,500 Swag Bucks or more!

6. Complete the Daily Swagbucks Goal

Make sure to check the Swagbucks homepage daily to learn what your daily earnings goal is. If you meet your goal you will earn a certain amount of bonus swag bucks. If you earn the daily goal 7 , 14, or 21 days in a row or for the full month you will also earn more bonus Swag Bucks, up to a maximum of 300 for the full month.

7. Like Swagbucks on Facebook

Swagbucks posts Swag Codes just for their Facebook fans, so it’s a good idea to like them on Facebook. Swag Codes are time sensitive, and usually expire around 5 PM PST so check early! They also run games on their page, usually on Fridays where the first correct response wins Swag Bucks. You have to complete a task before playing the game, like watching a video on their YouTube channel and then correctly answer a question about the video you watched.

8. Read the Swagbucks Blog

The blog is a good place to find hidden Swag Codes. Swag Codes are in certain blog posts and can be worth around 3-8 Swagbucks.

9. Use Shop and Earn

Shop and Earn is a great way to earn a lot of Swagbucks doing something you would be doing anyway, shopping online. You can earn anywhere from 1-27 Swag Bucks per dollar spent shopping. A few examples of stores that you can shop at include Walmart, Indigo/Chapters, Apple Store and more! For a full list of stores join Swag Bucks and visit their Shop and Earn page.

10. Referrals

A good way to earn Swagbucks is by having referrals. Every time your referral earns Swag Bucks searching, you do too (up to a maximum of 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral)! The top earners on Swag Bucks let their referrals do the earning for them!

11. Print Coupons

Swagbucks now has SmartSource coupons available for printing. In order to earn Swag Bucks select the coupons you want, print them out and redeem them at your favourite store. Your Swag Bucks will automatically be added to your account after redemption (it can take up to 12 weeks for the Swag Bucks to be added). You earn 1 Swag Buck per coupon, up to a maximum of 12 Swag Bucks per month.
