I've been using Swagbucks for a long time, and it's one of my favorite rewards sites. I have seen that if you use the site consistently, it really pays off. I'm not sure just how many $5 Amazon gift codes I've redeemed through there over the years, but it's been quite a few!
I decided to make a list of some ways you can earn even more Swagbucks. The more Swagbucks you earn, the more often you'll be able to cash out! But first — if you aren't familiar with Swagbucks, you can read my old post here that kind of details how it works.
Want to earn more bucks? Here is what I suggest:
Ways To Earn Even More On Swagbucks
1. Use Swagbucks as your primary search engine.
If you catch yourself using Google or any other search engine instead of Swagbucks, you could be missing out! Make a point to always use Swagbucks for searching. Some people find it easier to remember to do this by installing the Swagbucks toolbar in their browser. If you have that, you can just go up to the toolbar and type in your search queries — and possibly win bucks in the process.
2. Make sure you don't miss any Swag codes!
Swagbucks releases Swag codes pretty much every single day. Entering these into the Swag codes box will always get you some more bucks. The amount of bucks this gets you will vary as each code is worth a different amount. How can you be sure you know about all available Swag codes? By following Swagbucks via their blog or Facebook page.
3. Take the daily poll.
Did you know that Swagbucks has a quick and easy daily poll you can answer? Giving your answer, which only takes about ten seconds max, will get you a few more Swagbucks, and you can do this every single day.
4. Print your coupons through Swagbucks.
If you frequently print out coupons online, do it through Swagbucks. Every coupon that you print and use at your local grocery store gets you ten Swagbucks! If you use a lot of printable coupons, this could really start to add up over time.
5. Do the special offers.
I know that some of the offers you see on the Swagbucks offer walls actually cost you money because you have to sign up for a free trial in order to get the bucks. But not all of them do. There are a very large number that cost you nothing at all, and these offers change regularly.
6. Follow the NOSO path.
NOSO stands for “No Obligation Special Offers.” You just click “Start Here” and then begin going through an offer path. Just click that you're not interested on each one if you're not, or skip if that option is there, and at the end of the path they will give you a couple of Swagbucks.
7. Watch the videos.
Swagbucks has a ton of little videos you can watch on their “Videos” tab. Watching them is painless, and it earns you more bucks.
8. Do the tasks.
Not everyone realizes this, but Swagbucks has a lot of short tasks listed under the “Answer” tab at the top of the home page. These are very similar to what you might see at Amazon MTurk. They are quick and easy little micro-jobs that will earn you some more Swagbucks.
9. Don't forget about Mega Swagbucks Friday!
Every Friday at Swagbucks is Mega Swagbucks day, and your chances of earning more Swagbucks through search go up on that day. So if you forget to use Swagbucks for searching Monday through Thursday, definitely remember to do it on Fridays.
10. Download the Swagbucks Mobile App.
Swagbucks has an app you can download for Apple & Android devices where you can watch Swagbucks TV on the go and earn even more bucks. A lot of people who use this app report that they have seen a big increase in the amount of Swagbucks they get thanks to using it regularly.
So those are my tips! Please share yours if you have them. And if you've never signed up for Swagbucks before, you can go here to get started.
