Making Money Monday: SwagBucks

Swagbucks.com is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise.
How to Earn Swag Bucks (Easy):
There are a few easy ways to earn "Swag Bucks", my favorite ways include:
  • Searching the Web
  • Voting in the Daily Polls
  • No Obligation Special Offers
  • Watching Videos - Swagbucks TV
  • Daily Survey
  • Swag Codes
  • Trusted Surveys
  • Daily Bonus Goal
  • Referrals

Searching the Web:
My NUMBER 1 way of earning points with SwagBucks is Searching the web. Searching the web is an enviable part on being online, weather your logging on to Facebook or visiting the ECC website, a search bar finds its use several times a day.

With the Swag Bucks search you can WIN points for things you would typically search for on a daily basics. This is by far the EASIEST way to earn Swag Bucks. The amount of points you can win vary, but I typically average 25 swag bucks a day.

*Tips & Tricks: Make the swagbucks search your home page, and download the swagbucks toolbar, this way anytime you search it will be through swagbucks, increasing your odds of winning points through search.

Find you visit most of your sites through bookmarked pages? Search your regular sites, and bookmark the results instead.

Voting in the Daily Polls:
One of the quickest and easiest ways to earn Swag bucks is to vote in the Daily polls. A new poll question is posted Daily and you will earn 1 swag buck for your vote.

Voting takes literally seconds to do, and if you are diligent and vote daily that's an average of 30 points a month added to your total.

No Obligation Special Offers (NOSO):
Another quick and easy way to earn sway bucks is by visiting the No Obligation Special Offers (NOSO) page, under the "Earn" tab.

Offers will be presented to you, as No Obligation, all you have to do is finish the path and you will be rewarded with (usually) 2 swag bucks.

NOSO can be completed once daily for swag bucks. As the pages says you are under No Obligation to visit or complete any of the offers presented, but if you do choose to complete an offer you can earn more swag bucks.
Watching Videos - Swagbucks TV:
A fun way to earn swag bucks is by watching videos on the Swagbucks TV page. There are thousands video clips, available and you will earn 3 swag bucks for every 10 videos that you watch.

Track your earning progress with the Swag Bucks Meter & you'll soon be earning multiple awards per day!

*Tips & Ticks: Watching 10 videos typically takes 8 - 10 minutes. A trick I use is to play the videos on mute in a separate tab or browser, while I do my daily online activities, and load a new video when ever the previous one finishes.
Daily Survey:
Visit the Daily Survey on the SwagBucks home page and earn 60 Swag Bucks for every survey you complete.

Surveys are one of the quickest ways to earn BIG Swag Bucks. Once you have completed the survey you will earn your Swag Bucks!

Swag Codes:
A Swag Code is a promotional code for SwagBucks that will give you Swag Bucks when correctly entered on your My Account page.  They can be found on any of the official Swag Bucks pages (Facebook, SB Blog, Twitter, YouTube, and Flikr), occasionally in the Swag Bucks Toolbar and if you happen to have to SwagBucks widget you can check for available Swag Codes instantly by clicking the "SwagCodes" link.

Swag Codes are available for either a limited time or for a limited number of users, so you need to keep your eyes peeled and act fast!

There are a few clues to keep in mind while hunting for Swag Codes.  The most obvious Swag Codes are announced as exactly that.

EX. Enter Swag Code “ANiceSwagCode” now to get 10 Swag Bucks!

A couple things to note about the Swag Code itself are that it is in quotes and there are no spaces between the words.  If you are on one of the official pages (see above) and you see something like this

The Swag Guy had a great time eating a “LargePepperoniPizza” today.

there is a good chance it is a Swag Code.  Hey, it can’t hurt to try it out.

Swag Codes aren’t always in quotes though, especially since the introduction of the anti-code-sharing codes.  Some times you will see a code that looks like this:

EX. Enter code SuperCodeJciUtkb73 for a free Swag Buck.

That string of gobbledy gook letters is a sure sign that you are staring at a Swag Code.

To enter your newly found Swag Code you need to get to either the Swag Bucks Home Page, or your My Account page you will see a box that looks similar to the one at the top of this post.  This is where you can ‘Enter your Swag Code‘ and click the Gimme! button.  If you’ve gotten the Swag Code correct and the time or user limit has not been reached you’ll be rewarded for your hunt.
Trusted Surveys:
Trusted Surveys are one of the quickest ways to earn BIG Swag Bucks FAST!! I have personally done surveys that paid 120+ SB

Rewards Amounts are offered upon successfully completing a survey. In circumstances where you are disqualified from a survey or the survey has reached its quota you will STILL EARN  1 Swag Buck just for trying for up to 5 attempted surveys in a day.

Daily Bonus Goal:
With the Daily Bonus Goal you can earn BONUS Swag Bucks just for earning your normal everyday daily sway bucks!!
How does this work?
  •  Check the meter on the Swag Bucks home page for your daily goal.
  • Start filling your meter by earning Swag Bucks through earning categories like surveys, special offers, SBTV or any other way to earn.
  • Reach the daily goal and earn your bonus.
You also can receive Goal Achievement Bonuses.

Reach your daily bonus 7 days straight - you will receive a 25 Swag Buck bonus + what ever you earned on your daily Bonuses.

Reach your daily bonus 14 days straight - you will receive a 100 Swag Buck bonus + what ever you earned on your daily Bonuses.
Reach your daily bonus 21 days straight - you will receive a 200 Swag Buck bonus + what ever you earned on your daily Bonuses.

Reach your daily bonus for a Full month - you will receive a 300 Swag Buck bonus + what ever you earned on your daily Bonuses.

Bonus goals and Swag Bucks vary day to day, but if you meet your goal daily you can on average earn an extra 600 Swag Bucks EVERY month!!

*Bonus goal Swag Bucks are tallied through out the month and are paid out monthly.

The best way to earn swag bucks is to not earn them at all. Having referrals is the best way to get swag bucks because you earn what they earn through searches, up to 1000 swag bucks per referral.
Redeem your Swag Bucks:
Once you've earned enough swag bucks you are able to redeem them for prizes at the Swag Store. Hundreds of prizes are available to be traded for swag bucks, what you choose is up to you as long as you have enough point for it.
I typically stick with a paypal reward, as I can transfer funds from my paypal account to my actually bank account.

*Please note you will need to have a verified paypal account in order to cash out using paypal.
