How does Swagbucks work and how much money can you make with it? Let’s find out.
What Is Swagbucks and Why Do I Love It?
First things first, what is Swagbucks?
In a nutshell:
Swagbucks is a fun rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online.
Now you may wonder…
Is Swagbucks legit or scam?
After having had experience with it for a couple of years, I can definitely confirm that Swagbucks is NOT a scam.
(Later in the post, I’ll also mention what you shouldn’t do if you don’t want to get your account closed. Yep, this happened to me and I barely managed to recover it, along with my dollars in the account.)
This program is awesome and here are the reasons why I love it:
it’s 100% free to join,
it’s easy to make money while doing the things that you already do online and,
I’ll be honest, when I first joined SB, I didn’t give it much credit and missed out on points I could accumulate during my period of inactivity.
But when I took a closer look at it and gave it a chance, with lazy participation I racked up to 2000+ Swag Bucks.
I even made it as my homepage and whenever I search for something online, I collect points.

(All of this, without extra energy on my part!)
This is my favourite part of this program… Doing what I already do, without extra energy on my part, without any investment and still making extra money!
By the way:
I believe the Swagbucks search bar uses Yahoo, meaning that whenever you search for something, you will get the similar results as if you were to search in Yahoo itself.
(Sometimes it’s similar to Google results too).
Which countries is Swagbucks available in?
At the moment, Swagbucks is available to people residing in the following countries:
United States of America
(Possibly in Germany too.)
Fun Ways To Earn With Swagbucks
I already mentioned that I personally make most of my swag bucks by searching the web (and through the “Refer a Friend” method too).
Even though I consider this to be the quickest and easiest way to earn points with the program, without extra energy on your part, there are also other options available.
Let’s discuss them.
1. Swagbucks rewards for completing the surveys.
If you have the free time to complete majority of those, then there is a huge potential there.
One survey can take from 10 to 30 minutes, and if you were to complete, let’s say 60 surveys, you could earn at least 5,000 Swagbucks.
100 SB = $1.
You do the math 😉
2. If you love shopping online, this will be your favorite.
Ladies, have fun making money while shopping!
It’s a dream, isn’t it!?
You can receive 2 Swag Bucks for every $1 you spend online.
Note that there are thousands of retailers offered by Swagbucks and so you have a wide range of options.
A while ago, I purchased something from Amazon Canada and voilà!
I received an e-mail notifying me of cash back pending in the amount of 497 Swag bucks just because I was shopping on Amazon using Swagbucks platform.
(For what it’s worth, I did get my well-deserved points after the payment got cleared).
So, if you’re not using Amazon Prime and you don’t need the product you’re buying right away, then you may as well do the shopping through Swagbucks and have some cash back.
3. Daily polls is another way to make extra points at Swagbucks.
This is what I do almost every day.
I mean, it takes about 5 seconds to take the poll!
4. Enjoy watching trailers/playing games and earn swag bucks.
If you like playing games and/or watch videos, then this might be one be your favorites.
You CAN earn cash with Swagbucks and you can choose how exactly within their platform.
Once again, my personal favorite is browsing the web since I always do a lot of research as a full-time blogger and I don’t want to distract myself on other things that I don’t really care about (like playing games).
Does Swagbucks Actually Pay? (Proof)
If your first question was whether Swagbucks is a scam or not, then the second would likely be whether it actually pays its participants.
My experience? It definitely does.
(I chose to get paid cash via PayPal, but you can also get gift cards from Amazon etc).
Remember, this is the absolutely FREE money that you get for things that you ALREADY do online.
Step 2: After confirmation e-mail, I recommend setting Swagbucks as your home-page. This linkwill help you do that, whether you are using Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer.
Step 3: Use Swagbucks as you would with any other search engine and start making extra cash!
How to Earn Your 300 SB Bonus?
Please read this part carefully because I want you to receive your bonus.
A few years ago, you could easily earn $5 for just signing up, however, this year in order to earn 300 in Swag bucks, you will have to be active and earn 300 SB in your first calendar month on Swagbucks.
In other words, if you sign up on Swagbucks any day of February, then you have until March 1st to earn your bonus.
Earning 300 Swagbucks is VERY doable using the methods that I explained earlier.
