I often post about all the wonderful opportunities available from Swagbucks, so I thought I’d share with you more about what Swagbucks is and how I benefit from it; and how you can too!
What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a website where you can earn things called SB. These SB can be redeemed for lots of different charity donations or gift cards. There is something for everyone, like gift cards for department stores, food and beverage, gaming, gas cards, home, beauty, music, sports, travel, and online. You can earn these SB by completing daily polls, surveys, searching for something using their search bar, shopping online, watching videos, and reading articles.
Answer Surveys and Earn SB
Daily Poll. Every day you can complete the daily poll in Swagbucks. They’re always easy and fun questions to answer. Today’s question was about Amazon Prime Day. They give you several choices to answer from. You just select one, and then you earn 1 SB, easy!
Surveys. You can answer surveys and earn SB. The surveys take a varying amount of time. You can choose how long of a survey you want to take. The ones featured today range from 3 minutes to 25 minutes. I usually like to try the ones that are 10 minutes or less. You earn a varying amount of SB for answering them. If you complete one, you get anywhere from 5 SB to 200 SB. If you don’t complete it, you still get some SB.
Most Popular Ways to Earn SB
These are a combination of all of the different ways you can earn SB. They’re just the ones that are the most popular among everyone using Swagbucks. For example, the top 4 right now are My Perfect Resume, a Kidsbox subscription box, Dollar Shave Club starter set, and Gillette on Demand. Those subscription boxes are really popular! You can earn from 1500 SB to 3500 SB for purchasing those.
There are also the most popular surveys that most people are completing. The top two are a 7 minute survey for 40 SB and a 10 minute survey for 50 SB.
Shop and Earn SB
You can earn SB when you shop at your favorite stores online. There are a couple of different ways to do this. You can install/download the Swagbucks Chrome Extension button or go through their website.
I like the Swagbucks Chrome Extension button because it automatically reminds me to use it when I shop. For example, if I go on Walmart.com, the Swagbucks button to activate up to 2% cash back automatically pops up. When I click on it, it takes me to another page where I can click “shop.” Then, it directs me back to Walmart.com to shop. I’ll be earning 2% cash back on everything I buy on that site.
If you go through the Swagbucks website, you can view all the shops available to earn cash back from. It shows the stores to you by category. The categories are:
- Recommended for you
- Featured Stores
- Local Deals for Your Zipcode
- Popular Stores
- Featured Coupons
- Favorite Stores
- Recently Added Stores
You earn a variety of cash back depending on the store. I’ve seen from 1% all the way up to 10%.
The local deals are from Groupon.com, so you earn SB for purchasing those.
Featured Ways to Earn SB
This is similar to the most popular way to earn SB. There are a variety of ways to earn SB. They feature various offers, deals, and activities you can complete. All of these are for different amounts of SB.
You can sort this list by most popular, alphabetical, or by the amount of SB you can earn.
Right now the lowest featured deal is 5 SB for signing up for text-exclusive deals from Sonic. The highest featured deal is 20500 SB for signing up to drive for Lyft.

Watch Videos and Earn SB
In this section, there are videos you can watch on a variety of subjects. You can choose what subjects you want to watch. Within each of those subjects, are lots of videos for various amounts of time. Each video is worth some amount of SB.
Here’s the different video categories:
- Editor’s Pick
- News & Politics
- TV & Film Hot Topics
There’s so many choices, there’s bound to be some kind of video you would like to watch. The best thing is you can earn SB while watching!
Play Games and Earn SB
Within this category, you play games and earn SB. Four of the different games categories, you can pay to play. One of the categories is totally free.
In the Featured Promotions, Popular Games, Casino Games, and Cash Games you can pay. Although, in these games, you can play for free. However, when you compete against other players, you can earn SB. For every dollar you spend in cash entry fees, you earn either 12 or 18 SB.
In the Swagbucks Games category, you can earn SB just for playing the games for free. You do have to have your ad blocker off though.
Popular Videos and Earn SB
In this section, there are currently 4 sponsored videos you can watch. You can earn 2 or 4 SB for watching these. I clicked on them and tried to see how long they were, but nothing happened. I think it’s because I have an ad blocker on.
Participate in Contests and Earn SB
There is a contest that goes on that’s called Swago. It’s described like this on the website: ” Each tile of your Swago Board has an action item associated with it. Complete that action item and the square will change colors signifying that it’s complete. Complete one of the Patterns on the right and submit your board for Bonus SB!”
If you go to the “Swagbucks” section on my blog, under the “Deals/Savings” category in the menu, you can find the latest Swago board offer. If it’s not right at the top, just scroll down a little and you’ll find it.
There’s also Sweepstakes that you can participate in. You can enter to win various prizes, for varying amounts of SB. For example, right now, you can pay 150 SB and have a chance to win 1000 SB. If you pay 100 SB, you have a chance to win a $10 Paypal gift card. Also, if you pay 25 SB, you can enter to win a Chromebook.
You can also download the SwagIQ app to earn SB. You can play Swag IQ, the live trivia game show from Swagbucks, for a chance to win over 100,000 SB.
Complete To Do List to Earn SB
On the left side of the Swagbucks website there’s a “to do list.” If you complete all 8 of those activities, you can earn extra SB. You’ll earn SB for each activity that you complete. Then, you’ll earn extra SB if you complete the whole list. Here’s what’s on the list:
- Daily Poll
- Daily Crave
- Daily Search
- Daily Watch
- Daily Discover
- Attempt a Gold Survey
- Deal of the Day
- Complete a Gold Survey
Why You Should Join Swagbucks
So, as you can see, there are many different ways you can earn points at Swagbucks. You can spend as little or as much time as you want, earning points every day. I think it’s great that you can earn points on things you’re going to buy anyway, and may even find coupons for your purchases! I love to save money and it’s great that I can earn rewards at the same time! Since it doesn’t cost you anything, there’s nothing to lose.
I joined Swagbucks in 2011. So far, I’ve earned over 99,000 SB. However, I’ve only recently, in the last year or so, got more serious about earning SB. The more activities you complete, the more you earn. So, it all depends on how much time you want to spend on it.
I earn SB by doing some of the things I mentioned above: I usually complete the daily polls, search for things using their search bar, and complete surveys. I’m also a Swagbucks Influencer, so I earn SB by publishing all the blog posts that you see on my site about Swagbucks.
I usually earn 10,000 SB every month to every three months. It depends on how many activities I complete and how many Influencer posts I publish.
I’ve redeemed them for Amazon gift cards, Sony Playstation Network cards, Walmart gift cards and Paypal gift cards. Recently, I’ve been waiting until I’ve earned 10,000 SB, and then redeem them for 2, $50 gift cards. I usually get a $50 Walmart gift card and $50 Paypal cash.
So, if you want to earn a little bit of extra money or even save some money when you shop online, you should join Swagbucks too.
