Swagbucks is a website where you can earn rewards by doing activities you normally do, such as shopping, searching the web, watching videos, playing games, printing coupons, and taking surveys. Every time you complete one of these activities, you can earn points called SB's.

How Swagbucks Works

Upon becoming a member and logging into their website, you will see links to Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer, Discover.

  • Shopping – receive “cashback” for making purchases from major online stores through Swagbucks. These include Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and more.
  • Searching – use the Swagbucks search engine over your regular one, to conduct your internet searches, and earn bucks.
  • Watch – watch videos about music, news, entertainment, pets, travel, and more, and earn credits to your account.
  • Answer – at any given time, Swagbucks has a list of online surveys available where you can earn SB’s by answering them.
  • Discover – print grocery coupons, or install the Swagbucks browser add-on to earn more, faster.
  • Referring Friends - do this and earn 10% of what your referrals earn.

Payment and Rewards

You can redeem your SB's for two main reward options: cash, or e-gift cards. One SB is worth approximately 1 cent.

PayPal Payments

If you would like to receive cash, you may request a PayPal payment to your account. Payments take approximately 10-14 days to process and will be issued in US dollars. Denominations are $25, $50, $100, and $250.

Tons of e-Gift Card Options

Alternatively, you may request an e-gift card to major retailers such as Amazon, Home Depot, Starbucks, and more. Other options include Facebook credits, iTunes cards, restaurant gift cards, Cineplex credits, and hotel credits. E-cards are awarded within 10 days of request and denominations of anywhere from $1 - $100 are available.

Tip! Look out for “sales”, where gift cards require around 10% less the SB's they normally require.

You may also donate your SB's to charities such as Unicef, Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross, etc. Donation amounts start at only 5 SB’s ($0.05).

Daily goal points are offered where you can receive bonus SB's if you reach the daily goal by the end of the day. Receive another bonus when you reach the daily goal 7 days in a row. Bonuses are paid on or around the first day of the following month.

Good but flawed

January 15, 2020 by Mike from United States

I like swagbucks and have earned a lot of gift cards over my time here. My biggest complaint is discover items not crediting. Then you submit a ticket with proof of completion and get a response a week later saying sorry, still not crediting your account.

I love Swagbucks! All I do is do a couple of surveys and receive gift cards! I was referred by a friend and glad that I was.

This program is awesome I've gotten so many gift cards by just signing up for services I now use and doing several surveys.

Reliable survey site

January 10, 2020 by Matthew from United States

I have been with Swagbucks for a few months now and can say the time is worth the effort. Swagbucks offers a high variety of survey options daily, has plenty of ways to cash out, responsive and accurate customer service and is a very legit survey site. There is more than just surveys you can fill out but also watching videos, installing apps as part of swagbucks or through a sponsored offer, purchasing products and getting cash back, playing games, etc. If you are looking for a little extra pocket money and have the patience for surveys, than you should consider Swagbucks as a really decent survey site option.

Don't get the fuss

I can't get my head around all the positive reviews I see about SB. I just don't think there any good. Constantly get DQ from surveys, only give you 1SB for getting DQ, I think they limit that to about 5SB a day as well. Very hard to build up SB for me. I used to use it but I gave up and found better ones to earn. They do pay you though.
