August 2017 was the first full month I’ve hit the daily target every single day thanks to joining a swagbucks/surveys group recommended by a friend. I honestly thought no one made money from them unless the odd good offer popped up or had better luck at qualifying for surveys then I had. I was wrong I have made £45 from 27th July till 28th August, before this I had only made £15 which was mostly because of the Heart Bingo offer I used.
What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a website where you can earn points (swagbucks, SB for short) for playing games, watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and completing daily tasks. You can then spend these points on giftcards or cash into paypal. Currently a £5 amazon giftcard costs 700 swagbucks or £5 into your paypal account costs 800 swagbucks.
5 Top ways to earn Swagbucks
Video apps – On android there are 7 apps (5 if your on Iphone) that you can watch videos on and earn 10 SB on twice a day sometimes more if you get a bonus. Each day the apps refresh at 2am and 8am, so if you are up before 8am you can play the apps for a second time.
I selected the shorter videos and added these to my favourites by pressing and holding on the videos and selecting the heart. Each day I can then play my favourites list and it earns me points while I’m busy doing other jobs. Some of the apps have a list of short clips and others have 10 second tip videos in the Home and Garden section.
On the Swagbucks app (at the bottom of the pic) I haven’t found short videos so I do this one by skipping every 4-5 seconds so each video counts until I hit the limit, usually I’m watching tv or doing something else at the same time. I didn’t know any about earning from apps if it wasn’t for Nikki’s blogpost.
Swagbuck games – You can earn 10 SB per day on the games. The 3 games are Swag Memory, Swag Jump and Swagasaurus Run. Playing the games twice usually gets you 2 SB. Going back to the home page and clicking on the games again helps to get swagbucks every 2 games. I use Swag Jump and Swagasaurus Run the most as they can be played quickly, and I regularly switch game especially if I’m struggling to get SB.
Swagbucks search – Use the swagbucks search engine to do any normal search you would do on google or another search engine. You can search randomly until you get free swagbucks but I find that searching normally is easier. Don’t forget to input the code and claim your SB in time.
To-do list and daily goal – The To-do list can be completed each day for extra SB. Each task gives you 1 SB, complete 6 of the 8 for 1-4 bonus SB or all 8 tasks for an even bigger bonus. Deal of the day can be completed by clicking on a few deals each day. I find discover and completing a gold survey are the hardest on the to-do list so I don’t always do these.
Your daily goal changes each day and has 2 goals to aim for. I aim for my first one each day and if I have the time I will try to hit my second one as this one can go quite a bit higher then today’s. As you can see my goal today is 85 SB and if I hit this I will get an extra 9 SB on my bonus that I will claim at the beginning of next month. For hitting the first target each day you get a streak and more bonus points at the start of the next month, my total was 571 SB for my August bonus. The amount you can get is 25 SB for 7 days, 100 SB for 14 days, 200 SB for 21 days and 300 SB for everyday of the month.
nCrave and sponsored videos – You can run nCrave and sponsored on your PC or laptop. The offers vary but they are quick and easy to do while doing something else. The sponsored videos also help tick off your discover on your to-do list and are usually just a 30 second video however they aren’t always available but worth doing when you see them. nCrave you can play this at least once sometimes more and mostly play by themselves, the odd one you need to click to go to the next article.
I think I have found a new addiction and can’t wait to beat this months target. Its a great site if you know how to use it, I know you can all also start earning swagbucks and saving money for christmas, holidays, birthdays or just to treat yourself. Also if you use my referral link HERE you get another 300 SB for earning just 300 SB in your first calendar month.
Even if you just run the apps each day on Android you would get 2,100 SB enough for £10 and 500 SB left for your next payout (1,500 SB on Iphone 100 SB away from £10 paypal but easily made up with the games). Do be careful if you don’t have unlimited data with your internet provider. Let me know how you get on 🙂 Ellie xx
PS. Keep your eyes out for Instant surveys they pop up and go very quickly but are usually only a few questions. Swago board and Collector’s Bills promotions run quite often and are worth having a go (Swago board is a bingo type game with certain tasks to complete and Collector’s Bills are picked up at random during searches).
