Easy Ways to Earn Swagbucks

Earning points you can redeem for Amazon gifts cards – easily over $160 worth a year (with potential for way more)? I’m in!

Swagbucks is AMAZING! I earn gift cards all year for web searches and streaming videos. The PERFECT way to afford presents when the budget is tight.

Swagbucks. There’s a good chance you’ve heard of them or seen them around the web over the past several years. This week just happens to be their 7th birthday!

You can earn PayPal cash or gift cards to countless places for doing stuff online! You can earn through things you are doing already (internet searches, anyone?) or things you can be doing simultaneously as you work.

Is it Really Worth It?

Maybe you are wondering if it’s worth it? Sure, you aren’t going to become rich earning Swagbucks, but they can really make a difference in your budget. Especially when things are tight. These next 18 months we are on a bit of a spending freeze – cutting our spending by over a fourth as we work hard to pay off our house.

Gifts that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to purchase are made possible. We can pay for a little date night or purchase vitamins and supplements on Amazon.

Spare time isn’t something I have much of (working outside the home, being a mom and wife, attempting to keep house and blogging pretty much sucks all of that up) so my Swagbucks goals are pretty simple and easy: 5 days a week I earn at least 50 Swagbucks (and each day of that gets me a 4 or 5 Swagbuck bonus). The other 2 I just get 5. If I earn more, great but if not that’s okay.

That puts me at 280 Swagbucks a week or 14560 a year. A $5 Amazon gift card is 450 Swagbucks (best deal), so over the course of a year, I can earn $161 in Amazon gift cards. Not too bad.

What do I do each day to reach these Swagbucks?

6 Easy Ways to Earn Swagbucks Every Day:

1. Searches

As you are doing internet searches throughout the day, simply use the Swagbuck’s search engine. That’s easy enough and adds zero time! (Every once in a while I don’t get the results I need from Swagbucks and have to switch to Google but I always try first). You won’t get Swagbucks every search. It will more likely be every 10 or more. I normally get Swagbucks from doing 1-3 searches each day and the searches typically give me 6-11 bucks. Sometimes, I’ll get 23!

2. Ngage/Take a Discovery Break

Watch the offers in the middle section of the Swagbucks homepage. I watch for the ones that are worth 2 Swagbucks – most of them you watch a series of short videos to earn them. On nGage you’ll earn 2 bucks for streaming a series of 7 short videos, Take a Discover Break is five 15 second videos. You can typically do this 3-5 times on each of them. You don’t have to be sitting there staring at the computer, but let them stream as you are doing other things.

3. Watch Swagbucks TV

For every 10 videos you stream, you get 3 Swagbucks. You have to watch each video for just over 30 seconds to count as watched. As I’m working on blogging and other things on my computer, this is extremely easy to do. Sometimes I’ll open of the Food or Animal channel and my daughter will watch them.

4. Daily To Do List

On your Swagbucks homepage on the left column you’ll see a check list of 4 things to do each day: Daily Poll, Daily Crave, SwagButton (get 1 buck everyday if you have it dowloaded), and NOSO. Do those things and you have an easy 5 Swagbucks and you can do it in less than 2 minutes!

5. Games

If I find myself a few Swagbucks short, I go over to the games and play a few. They don’t take very long and if I happen to select one that seems to go on endlessly, you don’t have to finish a game to get credit. You get 2 Swagbucks for every other game you play – up to 10.

6. Swag Codes

You already have the handy SwagButton downloaded that gets you buck everyday. Well, it notifies you every time a new Swag Code is available and tells you were to find it. I’m only at my computer a few times a week when they pop up, but they take seconds to redeem and are worth watching for.

Are you ready to easily earn $15 of Amazon gift cards every month (with tons of opportunities to earn even more)?

    I have, and still am, using swagbucks, but am planning to get rid of it…. yes, I have made money on it, but there is a down-side also. I’m glad it is working for you.

      Oh no! That’s a bummer, but way to go on recognizing was does and doesn’t work for you! So far I’ve really enjoyed it since I can be streaming videos as I’m doing work. Thanks for commenting.

      I love it too! On the weekends when I’m not working on the computer as much, I let my daughter watch the animal videos or do the games to earn some points. I love that I can let things stream as I’m already doing work.

    I’ve recently downloaded the app for my phone, but I haven’t had time to play with it yet. Thanks for the tips! Thanks so much for sharing at Totally Terrific Tuesday! I hope you stop by to link up with us again this week. Remember the party starts tonight at 10pm!

    I love Swagbucks, it is the most consistent way I know of to make some decent spending money online. I run all of the mobile apps each day, until they max out. There are 6 apps for Android, one of them makes 36 Swag Bucks per day, the other 5 make 18 each. That’s equivalent to over a dollar per day, and ALMOST passive.

    I recently posted an infographic on my blog outlining the ways I use the main site, too, if you are interested. Combine that with the mobile apps, and you can definitely make over $10.00 per week pretty easily.

      Oops, I read this one second! I checked out your ingographic and it looks like we use the same ways to earn on the computer! Swagasaurus Run is my go to game for those points as well and sometimes the Mad Cab one. 🙂

      Swagbucks is awesome! Yes, I love the Swagbuck apps – I think it’s easier to earn that way than on the computer. I don’t have a smart phone/device yet so we just use my husbands phone. I think with using the apps I could probably pay for the budget increase of getting one though!
