Earn Swagbucks on Your Phone

Super easy way to earn gift cards on your phone using Swagbucks' mobile apps. We love it and it covers our gift budget!

If you have a smart phone, I have a super easy way for you to earn gift cards right on your device! You might already know how much I love Swagbucks. In fact, I have a post of where I talk about if Swagbucks is worth it and my favorite ways to earn Swagbucks on your computer (which earns me at least $160 a year in gift cards).

In some ways, it’s even easier (and less time consuming) doing this on your phone than the computer.

Swagbucks has a few apps that you can download and do tasks on.

Reminder, be sure you are streaming the videos on the apps when you can use wi-fi to ensure you don’t have data overage fees. It’s no fun to get those notifications.

How to Earn Gift Cards on Your Phone

Swagbucks Apps to Download:


This app is as close to their website as you can find in an app. There are still something you won’t be able to to find on it.

  • You can use the app to to web searches to try and earn Swagbucks.
  • The circle on the top right corner is where you can enter Swag codes.
  • Shop through the app to earn Swagbucks back.
  • You can also do surveys and watch through this app.


This is actually my preferred method to stream videos to earn Swagbucks. It takes fewer videos to earn than on the Swagbucks Mobile App. It’s also a way better deal than watching videos on their website. The videos will autoplay on your phone for the most part. Glance at if every once in a while because you will have to click continue periodically.

So get it going, put your phone to the side where you can check and see if you need to click continue and earn Swagbucks while you are doing other things.


You have access to this on the first app, but this is just more streamlined with just those things on it.

What to do on the Swagbucks Survey App:

  • Submit pictures of your receipts
  • Answer the daily poll
  • Answer about me questions
  • Take surveys

Taking surveys is what I do least often. Because as I talked about in my other post on Swagbucks I find them a little annoying. At times I have to ask dozens of questions only to find out I’m not qualified. The surveys I am able to take, are enjoyable though. The time it takes makes this iffy.

Using Swagbucks can make a difference in a tight budget. Either helping you buy necessities or providing a little bonus spending money that you wouldn’t have been able to have.

Think about the difference that money could make for to your grocery budget. You might even be able to cover Christmas with that money. If you are working hard to make ends meet, these little things really can make a difference.

It’s completely free to sign up, so give Swagbucks a try and see what happens!
