Q & A: How Do You Earn Swagbucks?

 I’ve been asked by several people lately, who know that I earn Swagbucks to help buy groceries, how I do it.  So I thought I would pull together some tips and things that I do that help me meet my Swagbucks goal every day.  Yes, I have a Swagbucks goal and it is determined by what I want to earn each month.  I am by no means an expert so if you know of something not listed below please share.

I have SBTV Mobile on my phone … you can earn up to 36 points daily.  Make sure you’re phone is using wi-fi though.

Daily Poll … you can earn one point daily plus I take advantage of offers that pop up after answering the poll question. 

NOSO … you can earn 2 points daily on this.

Under the ‘Play’ tab I play a game called Swag Jump. It is very simple and doesn’t take a lot of time.  You can earn 2 points for every two times you play.  You can earn up to 10 points daily.

Under the ‘Watch’ tab you’ll find Swagbucks TV and for every 10 videos you watch you earn 3 Swagbucks.

I earn Swagbucks by referrals.  Every time someone joins Swagbucks through my link and earns their own Swagbucks, I earn a small percentage.  (A great big thank you to all who have done this!)

I print off coupons through Swagbucks and earn points when I use them.

I take survey’s.

I signed up for the Swagbucks mobile phone alert so I could get bonus swag codes.  They are time sensitive.

These are the things that I’m currently doing.  I’ve never used their ‘shop and earn’ feature and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has and what their experience has been. 

Anyone who can add anything to this list, please do so in the comments below!

Here are a five quick tips that have helped me with swagbucks:
(1) I set a purpose/goal for every dollar I earn in both swagbucks.  I literally go to Amazon and pick out an item I am working toward being able to buy and put it in my cart. Knowing what I'm working towards helps keep me motivated to keep on keeping on. My last swagbucks paid for purchase was a $30 jar of whey protein. My next swagbucks purchase I'm working toward is essential oils.
(2) Routine is crucial for me. I try to do the bulk of my swagbucks in the mornings before my day gets to hopping.
(3) If I'm having trouble meeting my goal I call in reinforcements ... my husband.
(4) Swagbucks sets a goal for me but I also have a goal I set for myself that depends on how fast I want to earn the points needed for the gift cards I'm wanting and ...
(5) I have to have the right mindset and realize that it’s work!

  1. Patsy, I think you should add your link so that anyone who wants to join would do so as your referral.

    I use shop and earn alot. Anything that I'm going to buy through Walmart.com. I click through the S&E link from Swagbucks. Thirty-one days later the SB are credited to my account. It works pretty well and it's a nice surprise to get up and the bucks have credited.

    I also do the different videos like June videos and the videos available on in the Special offers section.

    Finally, I check the Swagbucks Facebook page periodically. People find codes and special offers that have worked for them and post the information on Facebook. I can use that information to gain more bucks.

  2. great tips. I didn't put it on my phone yet, but will def do it now. I have a whopping 59 points, lol. I did a survery earlier that said I qualified, but then I didn't and got no points. :( disappointing. Oh well, will try other ways.

  3. We are getting 54 with SBTV daily. There are two places to earn them. Hubby has mine set up and runs it on the iPad so sorry I cannot be more help but do check it out so that you can earn more.

    1. Thanks for the tip Lana! I'll see what I can find.

    2. The other one is EntertainNow. I hope you can add it to your earnings!

  4. I use shop and earn every time I buy anything off line. I have used it for Amazon, Khol's and Macy's. It is fantastic. Amazon gives you 3 SB for every dollar. If you purchase a lot of things from Amazon always go through shop and earn.

  5. Oh so swagbucks is through amazon? I'm still lost as to what they are or where you go to earn them since I've never heard of them.

    1. No, Rose1957, swagbucks is not a part of Amazon. Go to Swagbucks.com and explore. Gift cards from Amazon is one of the things you can redeem with the swagbucks you earn.
