Making Money with Swagbucks

Published by beemoneysavvy on

If you haven’t heard of Swagbucks before it’s a website that offers you credits (known as Swagbucks) for completing tasks like watching videos, playing games & browsing the internet. These credits can then be redeemed for gift cards including Amazon!

Swagbucks Logo

I’ve been a member of Swagbucks for years now and over those years Swagbucks has paid for a lot of Christmas presents, gadgets and more! Follow my top tips below & start earning big bucks!

Install the Swagbutton

Have you ever pressed “Submit my Order” while shopping online AND THEN remembered later that you could have earned cashback? The Swagbutton is a browser extension that reminds you to never miss an opportunity to earn SB. It lists featured coupons & reminds you to connect a store to Swagbucks before you check out. You can install it by clicking on the Swagbutton tab in your sidebar (you’ll get 50 SB for downloading it!).

Search & Earn

Swagbucks Search and Earn randomly awards you SB to for looking anything up on the web. Any search could result in SB. You can default your search engine by clicking on the Search tab in your sidebar (do this on your computer at work too if you can!).

Earn On The Go

Download the Swagbucks Mobile App to earn SB throughout the day! Watch videos while waiting for the bus. Take surveys on your lunch break. Answer the daily poll on the loo.

Swagbucks apps include: SBTV Mobile, SwagIQ, EntertaiNOW, &

Refer Your Friends

If you invite a friend to Swagbucks you’ll get 10% of the SB your friends earn life. So if they earn 100 SB, you earn 10, if they earn 500 SB, you earn 50 (the more your friends earn, the more you earn!).

Shop with Swagbucks

Before buying anything online see what you can buy through Swagbucks (or with a coupon from the Swagbucks coupon page). Shoes, makeup, office supplies, you name it. You can rack up a lot of SB from ordering online or using coupons (10 SB for each one used!).

Enter Contests

Each month Swagbucks run a different contest, while the chances of winning the grand prize (which is currently £1000) is low, you’re still able to win loads of bonus SB’s through completing tasks that you would usually do on the site anyway!

Watch While You Work

Start catching up on celebrity, style and tech news with Swagbucks TV. Instead of watching under the Swagbucks “Watch” page, try splitting your screen between emails and your Swagbutton video player (grab 3 SB for every 10 videos).

Discover free trials

The Swagbucks Discover page lists offers like Birchbox, Gamefly and Audible. Swagbucks rewards you with 1000+ SB (That’s a £5-10 gift card!) just for signing up for a FREE trial (see my free trials guide for more info).

Complete Your To-Do List

Earning extra SB by crossing things off your Swagbucks To-Do List. Each task involves exploring Swagbucks’ content and you’ll get a bonus for completing 6-8 of the things on your to-do list.

Hit Your Daily Goal

Swagbucks daily goal

Every day, Swagbucks sets an SB goal for its users. Each time you reach it, Swagbucks will give you a little bonus. You can get even more bonuses at the end of the month if you are on a winning streak. Check your daily and monthly progress by hovering over the daily goal tab at the top of the Swagbucks web page.

Get Cashback on your Giftcards

Swagbucks’ sister site,, gives cashback with every e-gift card purchase (earn cash back + 11 bonus SB in some cases). Stackable gift cards include Sephora, Lowes, & Groupon.

Gift Card Sales

Sometimes, SB puts their gift cards on sale so your 5,000 SB are now worth a lot more. You’ll need to keep your eye out because these offers don’t come around often!

Customise Your Homepage

Are you a shopper? Gamer? Adventurer? Customise your settings to show more deals, games, surveys or videos! See more of the stuff you want by clicking on the ‘Set Interests’ tab in your sidebar.
