Swagbucks - Earn $ to help pay for WA

Last Update: Nov 12, 2014


I have seen and given feedback on many members sites for reviews on Swagbucks. I have been a member for a couple years but only recently started using it to my full advantage.

Two things I want to mention first off. You can sign up here. This IS AN AFFILIATE link. I'm showing it to you so you can see the new way Swagbucks helps you earn (clicking on that link and signing up that way will give me bonus swagbucks).

BUT you don't have to click there if you don't want. You may also just go to www.swagbucks.com and create your account. You may also have family or friends sign up under you to get you bonuses or allow them to help you earn your swagbucks (SBs) by logging into your account.

This is NOT a quick way to make cash. I used to just use it and exchange my SBs for amazon gift cards. But now I am using my points to get a PayPal $25 card. At first you will think it is an impossible task to obtain 2500 swagbucks in a month. But it really is not.

I am going to show you how I do it.

Once you create your account and sign in, this is the header on the left side. These are the different ways available to earn. Feel free to explore the offers, it doesn't cost you anything unless you accept certain offers. But there is nothing hidden, you know right away if something will cost.

This is the right side of the header. There is a daily swag code offered on twitter which gives you a bonus SBs, usually around 5. If you add the browser extension you will be notified when it is available. Refer friends is a way to get people to sign up under you and earn you extra SBs. That is the first link I gave you at the beginning of this post.

Now, this is my total, 465 SBs, that I have earned in 3 days! Through very little effort.

The first number (52) is what I earned this morning. I'm a bit behind while doing this post but I will be able to make it up later with no problem.

The To Do List are daily activities you can do to earn SBs that just take a few minutes. The toolbar add on is the one that notifies you of the swag code. I get between 100 and 150 SBs a day.

After my I complete the daily To Do List, I go to the middle section and look for this block. nGage is SUPER easy. I click on the link and it opens in a new window. You view 7 webpages for 20 seconds each, then click on a thumbs up or thumbs down. Sometimes you just have to click next page. I have this up and have it going in the background while I do other things. Basically, every 2 minutes, you're getting 2 SBs.

Swagbucks TV

The other way I earn, I usually do on my Kindle so I'm not making my laptop run slower. But if you don't have another device, you can run these videos in the background as well while you do other things.

Click watch at the top of the page. There are 2 types of videos I prefer because they are shorter. (Actually, I found when playing on my Kindle, I don't even have to click play. I just click on the next video and wait for the watch meter to show that it has been viewed.)

You have to watch 10 videos to earn 3 SBs. There is a small meter at the top of the page that tracks how many you have watched. But like I said, I don't have to be actively watching them. The first set I watch are the comedies in the entertainment section.

If you scroll down a little further you will come to the food section. Click on the first video and your off!

How fast you earn depends on the time you have to put into it.

Couldn't be any easier folks. Then you can look at Catherine's suggestions and only have to come up with another $22!

Please leave any questions or comments below. :)

Hi, Angela. Thanks for sharing this! I will look into it when I have a bit more time.

The initial setup will take the longest and it's not that long lol.
Like I said, I do it while I'm working on my site. :) That's an easy $25 a month.

I have used them in the past some is pretty cool all the best

I like it and it is a huge help to me. I don't bother with the surveys but there are plenty of other ways to earn.

Great information, thanks! Peggy

Your welcome Peggy. It is a huge help to me.

Hey Angela thanks for this, I am going to bookmark this for future use

No problem! Every little bit helps. :)

Interesting, have to try this, but wonder about the comments about banning....as I understand, you are looking at websites and watching videos....how can thay ban you for that, what can you do wrong ?

I don't get that either. I think that had more to do with surveys which I don't bother with. I'm not worried about banning. I'm doing what the site asks that I do to earn my bucks. :)

Great, have bookmarked this page, as soon as get the time I will use your affiliate link to sign up and try it out

Thanks :)

Sorry Angela, but swagbucks are not available in my country.....they let me create an account, but was not able to log in, so sent a message to support...and that was the answer I got

:( oh well. I didn't realize they had restrictions like that

Angela, thanks for sharing that info! I will have to check it out.

absolutely. I will always share when I learn something new or find something that helps make money lol. :)

I joined Swagbuck a while back but never really got the hang of it. As you point out Angela the surveys are useless. I'll go back and have another look now you shown me how to make it work, thank you. :)

absolutely! Sharing is caring, as they say lol.

Thanks, Angela! I use my Swagbucks for Amazon Gift Cards, but I like some of your ideas here. May have to get back into it.

And it's so easy. I just have to look over at my kindle every few seconds and click on the next video. Really no effort at all.

I'm getting a new Kindle Fire in a day or two (ordered from HSN). Maybe I"ll set that up next to me and follow your most excellent leadership!

lol ok

Great post! I hear the banning rumors pop up every so often. I have been going strong since April and have earned about $150 in Amazon gift cards, thru very little effort. Even got some great free products. I agree that the risk of banning is minimal in relation to the reward.

Exactly! I'm just happy I only have to come up with $22 for my December payment on WA lol. Big relief for me :)

Hey Angela. Funny you would bring this up, as I was thinking about it this morning after reading Catherine's suggestions to earning. I've done Swagbucks for years, and obviously, am still doing it. :) I just want to say that a person has to be careful on that website. They have been banning people for lame reasons recently and lowering the points you can receive for completing surveys. Just a heads up, but I still think it can be worth it, if you have the time to multitask and do other things at the same time. :) Michelle

I don't even bother with the surveys because I found I hardly ever meet the demographic.
I stick to the options I pointed out here and haven't had any issues. If banning is the worst they can do to me then I'm fine with those odds. :) I'm not wasting anything or losing money so win win for me. :)
