I joined Swagbucks on Feb.21st. In 18 days I’ve earned over 1800 points. A $5 Amazon.ca giftcard only costs 450 points, so at 1800 I’ve already earned enough to redeem for $20 at Amazon. Woohoo. How awesome is that?
Whenever I’ve seen bloggers writing about Swagbucks in the past, I assumed they were racking up points through referrals. I didn’t do it through referrals. ( I do have a couple of referrals on my account, which have earned me under 100 points total thus far.) As of writing this article I have 1945 points. Here’s how I earned ’em:
- Do the daily poll each day for 1 Swagbuck.
- Page through the daily “No Obligation Special Offers” for 2 or 3 Swagbucks.
- Click on “Trusted Surveys” to see if there are any new survey’s available and earn 1-3 Swagbucks just for checking in.
- Complete surveys. I’ve earned from 38 to 128 Swagbucks by completing a Survey.
- Take advantage of the Daily Deals. Twice now I’ve bought a Groupon, which I would have been buying anways, through Swagbucks to earn points. Originally the deal was 315 points for buying a Groupon, but it’s dropped to 160.
- Swagbucks TV. Turns out most of the “channels” are available in Canada after all (just not the cooking ones, all the others I’ve tried have worked). Throughout the day I play Swagbucks videos in the back ground. Every ten videos you watch gets you 3 points.
- Swag Bucks codes. You find secret codes and enter then on the Swagbucks homepage. I signed up for an email alert system so I get a notification every time there’s a new code available. Usually 5-10 points per code and they release a code at least once a day.
- Searching the web. Everytime I need to go anywhere online, I use the Swagbucks search engine. Even sites I already know the address for, I head there through the search engine. I have “won” from 7 to 29 Swagbucks on searches. I am averaging a minimum of 30 Swagbucks a day through the search portal.
I’m not even getting into all the “no purchase required” daily deals or tasks that you can earn points on. I simple don’t have the time to invest. However I think someone with extra time on their hands could earn major points pretty quickly.
Overall, I still can’t get over how quickly I am earning point, which for me means money to spend at Amazon.ca, though they do have plenty of other prize options. If you haven’t yet, I’d definitely recommend checking Swagbucks out.
