I have been using Swagbucks for a couple of months now, and I have been more than pleased with the results. Even though these past 2 months, I have decreased my use of the website because of school and YouTube, I still try to log in at least once a week and take surveys.
What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a service that allows you to watch videos, buy products, read articles, sign up for stuff etc in exchange for points. You can amass these points until you have enough to get a gift card.
How did I start using Swagbucks and How much money have I made on there?
I started using Swagbucks, because I wanted to earn some side money online. As a student, I’m always looking for ways to make money for things I want. One day I was looking at some online jobs, and I came across an article that recommend Swagbucks and at first I was very skeptical. I have signed up for some survey sites before and was pretty disappointed with them. They would make you do a 45 minutes survey and only pay you 25 cents. Like what am I going to do with 25 cents? That can’t even buy you a pack of gum. But of course I decided to give Swagbucks a try just to see what it was like. What I noticed right away after signing up is the fact, Swagbucks had different options for you to make money.
After using the website for a day or two, I came up with a good set of things I should do every day. I always take the daily poll which gives you 1 point. I then go a check the golden surveys, here you can find surveys offering different amount of points. Usually most of them are under 500 and take anywhere from 1 minute to 45 minutes. Finally I make sure to go to Peanut Labs, they also have surveys ranging from 10 points all they way up to 200 points. Sometimes if you are really lucky you might find some that are worth a lot more, but those are very rare.
I always attempt to take all the surveys since if you don’t qualify you get 1 point for disqualification. Personally with the surveys, I think you have to be consistent and come back to do them every day. There are days where you will find surveys that are straight up gold! One time I was randomly looking through Swagbucks and I found a survey that was worth 30 bucks! 30 bucks I say. All I had to do was answer 5 questions every day for 3 days. But of course those are rare for most days I usually get 1-10 points every day.
So how much money have I made on there? Well I personally can’t say I have made a lot of money on there. I only have redeemed one gift card so far. It was a 50 dollar gift card from Amazon, but I have also have gotten two 300 dollar worth online classes for free so I can’t complain. I think if you are consistent you might make a lot more money. Right now, I have made 20 dollars these past 2 months again probably because I only logged in 5-6 times, but I’m currently waiting for another 25 dollar survey to give me my points.
Types of Gift cards and Point system
Swagbucks has plenty of gift card options from different companies such as Amazon, Visa, Best Buy, etc. The point system is also pretty simple 1 point equals 1 cent, so if you have 1000 points that’s 10 bucks.
I personally just LOVE Swagbucks, and I would recommended to anyone above 13 who wants to make extra cash on the side. It’s not a job or anything, but I mean it’s an easy way to make a couple of dollars here and there. The major pro for this site is the fact it is an established site, and I can personally vouch the Gift cards they give you actually work, and no I’m not getting paid to say this. I just wanted to share something I really really enjoy!
If you want to make extra money online (of course you do who hates money?), make sure you go to sign up. When signing up use my referral code that way we both can get points. Mutual relationship right? 😀
