How to earn with Swagbucks ? That´s a question that I have heard to a lot of people. Swagbucks is a website that allows you to earn money while you are shopping, searching for information in the internet and watching videos. But what is Swagbucks really about, and does it work ?
I have recently opened an account again with Swagbucks and I must admit that they have implemented some improvements since the last time I used it.
Price: 0 €, it is totally free.
Owner: Prodege LLC
Suitable for: Anyone
But, What Is Swagbucks ?
Swagbucks is a reward website which gives you points (called SB) that you can afterwards spend in different ways, for example gift cards, Paypal checks, Visa reward cards, etc.
At Swagbucks you can do different searches in the web, watch videos, do some shopping online or read articles. In return you will receive “SB points”. Usually watching videos and reading articles provide 2 SB points. You have to watch 10 videos to obtain 2 SB points and you usually need about 10 minutes for that.
Searching in the internet seems to be one of the most rewarding activities to obtain SB points. If you make Swagbucks your default search engine, you will get SB points as you are doing your usual searches in the internet.
Their search engine works basically as any other one, and the main difference is that you will find many more advertisements on it. You will find a lot of advertisements in all the websites that you access using Swagbucks. That´s how Swagbucks makes money, and then they use part of that money they get to reward the people who use their website with gift cards, etc.
You will see advertisements in the videos, articles, the search engine … All this website works thanks to the advertisements it contains. I am sure they get money for every single click or impression on those advertisements.
As far as the rewards that they offer, apart from the SB points I have previously mentioned, they also raffle different products. For example, recently they were going to raffle a PS4/Call of duty black ops. III pack.
You can spend the SB points that you have accumulated to have entries within the raffles. It can be a good option for those who have a lot of SB points !
You need to spend quite a lot of time to get enough SB points to obtain, for example, an Amazon gift card or a Paypal check. But if you usually do many searches in the internet, I think that you should take a look at it.
The SB points can also be exchanged for real gifts. I have some friends who have done it and you can see that there are a lot of people exchanging points online all the time.
I think that the 3 best ways to earn SB points are the following ones. The first one would be to make Swagbucks your default search engine. The second one would be, whenever you are going to buy anything in the internet, to verify if Swagbucks has any active offer for the website where you are going to buy the product. And finally, the third one would be online surveys, which are relatively easy to do and provide a good amount of points.
When you buy something online through their website, Swagbucks will pay you a certain amount of SB points per dollar you spend. Sometimes it can be up to 8 SB points per dollar. Therefore, it is clearly worth it to take a look if you know for sure that you are going to buy something.
The videos are a little boring and you only earn 2 SB points for watching 10 of them, which usually are around one minute long each. I tried to watch some of the ones included in the “funny videos” list, but to be honest they weren´t funny for me …
One of the advantages of Swagbucks is that you can use it while you are bored or when you don´t have anything else to do. For example, if you are waiting for a plane in the airport, or waiting for the meal in a restaurant, or even if you are in the bathroom, you can use that time to earn SB points !
There Is Also A Mobile Platform Too
If you have a smartphone running Android or IOS, you can also use the Swagbucks platform on your mobile.
It´s not a bad option when you are bored, because you can use that time to do some searches or to watch a few videos.
You don´t have to read the content of the webpages, you only have to make sure that you go to the next page when Swagbucks tells you to. That way they count how many pages you visit, etc. and they pay you the SB points you have earned.
According to my calculations, I believe you can earn a maximum of 500 SB points watching videos and another 150 SB points by other means.
I would personally use the mobile platform to fill in as many surveys as I could. Perhaps I would also watch some videos that seemed interesting, but the truth is that I don´t like it very much. So, the best option for me would definitely be to fill in surveys.
You have to try to earn as many SB points as possible in the least amount of time. For example, watching videos for 10 minutes to earn only 2 SB points does not seem very profitable. Some of the other ways to earn SB points can be worth it , especially if it is something that you are going to do anyway (internet searches, shopping, …).
To Resume, Swagbucks Is Not A Bad Option
But obviously it is not an option to consider if you are looking for a full-time income source in the internet.
If you are sure that you are going to buy something in the internet, if you like to read random articles about almost anything, if you enjoy watching all kind of videos or you don´t mind filling in surveys, then it is not a bad idea to get paid or to obtain a reward for doing it.
If you think that you are going to earn enough SB points to make a living, or if you think that you are going to get a lot of Amazon gift cards, think about it again. That is just not possible.
But if you consider Swagbucks a platform to use every now and then and earn a few SB points that can afterwards provide you some money or a reward, then I believe it is not a bad option.
It Is Legit !
For all the previously explained reasons, Swagbucks cannot be considered a scam that wants to cheat you and/or take your money away.
But if you want to use Swagbucks to make money online, I think that you are wrong. Swagbucks is more, for example, for people who does a lot of searches in the internet and want to obtain some profit from the time they spend on that.
Anyway, if anybody is still wondering “Swagbucks, what is it ?”, I recommend that you open an account and try for yourself. But if you want to make real money in the internet, I think you should find another way to do it. If you are really looking for a way to make real money in the internet, take a look to the platform that I recommend in some other posts of this website.
So, have you learned how to earn with Swagbucks ? Are you going to open an account ?
How would you spend the SB points that you would obtain ?
