Today I want to talk about the website Swagbucks. Swagbucks is not a website I use everyday, truth be told I can even go months without logging in, but It’s a site I should really use everyday, so today’s blog is all about it.
First off, what is Swagbucks?
Well it’s a website where you can earn “swagbucks” and then in turn convert them into Amazon Vouchers or paypal payments, due to my love of Amazon I go for the vouchers myself. You watch videos, do surveys, the normal things that I talked about in my Inbox Pounds blog.
I have been using Swagbucks more these last few days so wanted to talk you through how to use it. Each person who uses the site will have different ways so if you find another way works for you then got for it, but for me this is what I do.
First login and see what daily goal I have (the daily goal is just a target and if you hit it you get extra Swagbucks.
As you can see from the above photo I have a goal of 30 and if I hit the 30 I get an extra 3 Swagbucks as a bonus. I have 21hours before the end of the day in which the daily goal is reset. It’s worth pointing out Swagbucks is a US company so the end of the day is in-fact 8.00am our-time (GMT). Plus the date is in the US format of MM/DD/YY and not the /DD/MM/YY that we have in the UK.
The first thing I do is the daily survey that is worth 70 Swagbucks, as you can see from the above photo it says you have to wait 2-3 days for the Swagbucks, but 99.99% of the time they are put on right away. In-fact they have always gone on right away for me. Then after I have done the survey I do the daily poll that is worth 1 Swagbuck and the NOSO that is worth another then re-check my daily goal.
As you can see I have now hit my 30 goal and been given a 2nd daily goal. This goal is 100 and if I hit it i have a bonus of 9. This is the 2nd daily goal / bonus and you can get no more after this. It’s just goal 1, then goal 2 if you hit the first one.
So to hit this 2nd goal I head over to the Peanut Lad’s surveys page.
As you can see in the above photo you have a few different surveys to go, I start with the short ones till I hit my daily goal. Remember, these survey companies do want different people. So I might do one and I put in, age 26, from Yorkshire, male and then get told I can not carry on. This is because I have done nothing wrong, but that survey might instead be looking for 40 year old women from London. So I then start another survey. It can be annoying if you get kicked out of 2 or 3 in a row, but just keep at it and you will find one you are the correct fit for.
After I have done my survey I get credited right away and check my daily goal again.
And yay I have hit my goal and all done for the day. You can carry on and collect more swagbucks, but I like to hit my goal and carry on the following day.
If you carry on hitting your goal you do in-fact get extra swagbucks ranging from 25 to 300.
I know what you are thinking….what do you do with these Swagbucks? Well you can cash-out via paypal. Personally I like my Amazon Vouchers.
When I come to cash-out I buy a £5 Amazon voucher for 825 Swagbucks, and when you think about it it aint bad. You earn 100 Swagbuck a day, then with your bonuses it works out you can get at least 1 £5 Amazon voucher per week, which in turn works out at £260 over the year, just for spending 20mins a day doing a few surveys?
After you cash-out you get a a e-mail when your gift voucher is ready, click on the e-mail, that takes you to the Swagbucks website and your code is there, ready and waiting for you.
There is so so many different ways to earn Swagbucks for your free Amazon vouhers or paypal money, but this blog has gone on far too long so “Sign Up”, have a go and I will do a follow up blog mid December with some more ways to earn.
Till next time,
