8 Easy Ways to Earn Money with Swagbucks

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

Alright, by now you've probably heard about Swagbucks. I kept hearing about it well before I finally signed up. It is one of the easiest online money (or gift card) makers I've tried!

Since Friday is Mega Swagbucks day - and your chances of winning huge Swagbucks is greatly increased - I thought I'd take the opportunity to talk you into signing up. One of the things that was holding me back was that I didn't want to download anything. So, here are 6 easy ways to earn Swagbucks without buying or downloading anything! (See also Part 2: Using the Toolbar and Part 3: Rewards)

  1. Searching. You do not have to download the toolbar to search. Just bookmark the Swagbucks homepage and head there anytime you have a search you need to do. Swagbucks uses Google to power their search engine. However, unlike Google, the paid advertisements are interspersed with the results and often have nothing to do with what you’re searching for. It seems like Target comes up no matter what I'm searching for. You can use the search engine to bring up your favorite pages such as facebook, or Mommysavers.
  2. Special Offers. You can earn 2 Swagbucks daily without even completing any offers. It is under NOSO – No Obligation Special Offers. Skip all the offers, or check “no†and you'll be rewarded with 2 Swagbucks after a few clicks.
  3. Daily Polls. Every day you can earn 1 Swagbuck for voting in the daily poll. I always search Swagbucks "daily poll" to find the page and get another chance at winning a search.
  4. Trusted Surveys. In addition to earning SB by completing surveys, you can get 1 SB for each survey you begin but aren't eligible for (up to 5 daily).
  5. Games. You will get 2SB randomly when you close out of a game. I've found that it is every other time you go back to the games homepage from a game.
  6. SwagTV. I don't know much about the Swag Videos, but you are randomly awarded Swagbucks for watching the videos.
  7. Codes. Check the Swagbucks blog and facebook page and you may find a swag code. Codes are also found hidden on the Swagbucks site, on the toolbar, and on the Twitter feed. Enter these codes on the Swagbucks homepage to have their value added to your account.
  8. Refer people. You can earn 1 Swagbuck for every Swagbuck your referrals earn through searches, up to 1,000. So invite your friends and family! You can post your Swagbucks wins to your Facebook feed, or grab a referral button to put on your blog. Several Mommysavers members have even posted their referral links in the Networking Group.
     


To sign up, just go to Swagbucks! You'll get 30 Swagbucks just for joining.

I've been doing this for about two months, but have really got into it hard the past two weeks or so. I'm right under a hundred Swag Bucks away from being able to buy 4 of the $5 Amazon Gift Cards (I have 1,712 Swag Bucks and I need 1,800 in order to buy four of them. Each one costs 450 though & it's pretty easy to get those fast - I just like saving up, instead of buying one at a time)! :D

Thanks- this was a very helpful summary. Short and to the point. It inspired me to rev up my Swag bucks. I got 50 points from the first search I did today- nice.

Quick question.... when I click on the survey part, there are never any surveys for me to take. It says to get started I should fill out a profile.... do you do that when you sign up initially? I can't seem to find a link to take me to a profile or edit my account to allow a new profile. Hmm....

jnbythesea, when you get to your survey page it will say this:

Welcome back, (your name). \t

Surveys Profiles

As of today 09/17/10, there are 2 surveys available for you to take.
<---This is what mine says.

Click on Profiles!

You have to file out a profile so they know which surveys to set you up with. But you also get swagbucks for each profile section you complete, so get moving! LOL

Thanks for the ideas. When I go to the surveys page, I don't see "welcome back", so evidently I don't have a profile. When I click on the "get started" icon to create a profile, I just get a blank page. I wonder if the site is having a problem with this page today, or if.... it is just me. Hmm... back to the drawing board. At least now I know what I should be seeing.

I believe you have to be a member for 5 or 7 days before the "profiles" are available for you to complete. When they first started them, you received swagbucks for completing each of the profiles (there are several). I think they still do that.

Also, I joined the Swagbucks Facebook page and that can give you tips as to what offers are paying (I don't do anything I have to download) or if you see lots of "Thanks TSG" posts, that usually indicates that a special code for additional swagbucks is out and available.

Congrats of the 50 win!! That's great!!

I joined in June and I've already purchased about $100 worth of $5 Amazon GCs. I don't have any referrals either, so my totals are all from searches/special codes/offers and the daily "4" that you get.
