Swagbucks is the largest and best-known place to earn money online, with over $334 million in payments issued since launching in 2008.
After signing up for their site a person accumulates Swagbucks (SB) by participating in a wide variety of activities. Each SB is valued at around $0.01 and can be used to order gift cards from many different retailers or they can be used to request a cash payment payment through Paypal. Rewards can be collected once a person has earned as little as 200 Swagbucks ($2). At times gift cards for some retailers may be available at a discount, allowing members to receive a larger reward for the same SB.
Swagbucks has a large selection of different options available to make money online. SB can be earned by watching videos, playing games, signing up to try free services, performing online searches, or filling out online surveys. People can also save money by using the website’s cashback shopping or by getting SB for signing up to use certain paid services. If you enjoy using Swagbucks you can also earn $3 for referring friends to signup, as well as 10% of the amount they earn while using the site.
Swagbucks currently offers a “daily goal” bonus which enables members to earn an extra 3 SB for each day they earn at least 30 SB, and another 2 SB if they reach 98 SB in earnings for the day. So the best strategy for making money with this site is to earn 30 – 100 SB per day regularly rather than go through marathon sessions every now and again.
Many of the opportunities available to earn online with Swagbucks are presented on a single long page. So the large amount of content may be a little overwhelming at first. However, this also makes the site very easy to navigate once you get used to it.
Swagbucks also has two mobile apps which can be used to earn online while on the go. One app allows access to paid videos, paid surveys, and cash back shopping services available from their website, with an additional feature which can notify you to deals at physical stores in your area (requires tracking to be enabled). The second app, Swagbucks Live, enables participation in a regular trivia contest event where people compete to earn a prize of up to $1,000 in Swagbucks.
