How do I earn Swagbucks?

Searching the Web..
If yours is a winning search, you will see something like what you see above… If I had to guess I’d say the average amount I win is 10 swagbucks… sometimes more and sometimes less… and I typically win 3-5 times a day. Swag Bucks can be won in denominations ranging from 1 – 1,000. (The highest I’ve ever won is 52 swagbucks).

Taking Surveys
Score 1 Swag Buck per day just for clicking on the Survey page… there are multiple surveys you can take to earn higher amounts ranging from 50 swagbucks to 200+ (I once earned 150 swagbucks for a survey).

“Each survey is looking for a unique type of person to complete the questionnaire. There may be times when you do not qualify for a survey based on the answers you enter. The “Odds” percentage gives you an indication of how difficult it may be to qualify for that survey. The higher the odds, the greater the likelihood that you’ll qualify for the survey.”

Shopping at the Shop & Earn Mall

Select one of the partnering online retailers and earn 2 Swag Buck for every dollar you spend. I have used this feature several times in the last year. Once I ordered a wedding gift online from Macy’s and scored 150 points. Another time I bought The Girl some running shoes thru Nike.com … and I scored boo koo points when Then Handsome ordered his new camera online as well. Basically you earn 2 swag points for every dollar you spend. Simply go to the swagbucks site first and click thru to the desired retailer and order as you normally would.

Watching videos
Swag Bucks are awarded randomly via Swag Bucks TV. You can earn 5 points from watching videos via swagbucks… and you can earn the 5 swagbucks amount several times in any given day. I typically have the videos play while I’m making dinner in the kitchen… it’s fun to watch in between tasks.

Completing Special Offers
To ensure that an offer has been completed, follow the instructions provided for each individual offer. The offer needs be completed in the same session and all information required to complete the offer MUST be accurate. The majority of offers will credit your Swag Bucks account within a few minutes. However, the estimated wait time varies from offer to offer. Some may take a few hours or a couple of days before final confirmation is received.

Finding Swag Codes
Swag Codes can appear anywhere, and at any time, throughout the Swag Bucks network including the Swagbucks newsletter, any Swag Bucks powered Search&Win Site; the Official Swag Bucks blog, thier Facebook Fan Page, Twitter page, Flickr page; and affiliated partner sites. Swag Codes can be redeemed by entering the codes into the Swag Codes box on your My Account page.

Video Games & Cell Phones

I recently sent in 3 of Monkey Boy’s old video games and earned over 1,000 swagbucks for doing so… You can also trade-in your old cell phones for swagbucks as well and there is no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

Print Coupons!!!
You can earn 10 Swag Bucks for every coupon that you print from Swagbucks.com and use in the store. It does take anywhere from 8-12 weeks for the Swag Bucks to show up in your account… but if I’m printing coupons off the internet… then obviously I’m going to print them thru swagbucks.com so I can earn extra swagbucks!

Your Birthday
Enter your birthday in the account details and you’ll snag 50 Swag Bucks on the big day (I did!).

How to do you SPEND Swag Bucks?
Swag Bucks can be used to purchase a bunch of random stuff in the “Swag Store”… or you can be like me and trade in your Swag Bucks for Amazon.com & Starbucks gift cards… Each month I trade in 450 points at a time (5 times) for the $5 amazon.com gift cards and then I save up and buy the $50 Amazon.com gift cards when I have an extra 5,900 Swag Bucks.

And Finally….

Invite your friends to join
Invite your friends to use Swagbucks.com and every Swag Buck they win searching the web, you’ll win as well… up to 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral! Yowzers!
