Question Swagbucks...

Does anyone really collect a lot of points using Swagbucks? I usually do the poll every day (1 point) and a search (usually 7-10 points). Sure doesn't grow very fast.

At around 10 points a day I'm not going to get very far quickly.

Am I missing something?

Thanks..

I earn a lot through swagbucks.

You aren't earning much because you aren't utilizing swagbucks to its fullest potential.

Everyday I do the daily poll, any trusted surveys I have, NOSO, any special offers I want to do like watching vides, SBTV, any swagcodes that are available, and do searches as well. I earn over 200 swagbucks a day and I'm not even a "high" earner.

Interesting.... how much time do you invest to do all of that?

I don't do it much any more so I don't know if things have changed and it's harder to earn than before but in about 2 years time I cashed in for about $1,000 in Amazon cards. But I got bored with the surveys, special offers, etc. and stopped. I probably spent overall about an hour a day total doing it. I also had a lot of referrals for a while too.

Swagbucks points really add up if you are a blogger. I used to have a blog and gathered a lot of referrals that way, which meant every point they received I would get it too (up to 1,000 points). Now that I no longer blog, I haven't claimed a Swagbucks gift card in a few months.

I would also recommened MyPoints.net. I sign up for their emails and get 5 points for every email I read (sometimes more, depending on what the vendor is offering). They also have surveys that garner you even more points. I get a gift card from them every 6 weeks (and if I checked my email more regularly, I would probably earn more). I find it easier to get rewards from MP versus SB.

Oh, and sign up for a separate email account when you sign up for MP.

Thanks....

Just a comment...

I do MyPoints already..... but it is mypoints.COM, not .net as stated. Just as a curiosity, I tried mypoints.net.... it doesn't exist!
