Swag Bucks

Is there anyone on here who does Swag Bucks? Do you cash out a lot each month? How do you get so many bucks? Any tips? I've been a member for a couple of years but only cash out 1 $5 amazon card a month really just from surfing and daily polls but want to do better! Thanks!

there is the NOSO, where you can get two points a day, the search varies daily, and try swag tv. I do the swag tv while I am surfing the web. Acutally doing it right now while I am on the DIS. It is not a huge way to make amazon credits, but it helps.

I am using SwagBucks to help pay for Disney so I have been cashing out for PayPal. I cashed out for $25 and $10 last month. I make as many as I can in a month and then cash out on the first. I used to do Amazon. That paid for a good chunk of Christmas last year.

I have the toolbar for 1 buck every day. I do the daily poll and the NOSO (just hit skip until you can enter the code for bucks). That is another 3 free for the day. I have the SwagBucks mobile app on my Kindle Fire and run it first thing every morning. When maxed out that is another 50 daily SwagBucks. I run SwagTV every change that I get. It is always running in the background and everyone in the house knows that if it isn't running to click another video. I also search for everything in my toolbar in the hopes of getting Bucks. I got 21 this morning for going to my email. Come to Disboards? Search in the toolbar and click the link. It takes an extra step but if I don't search it then I have no chance to win SwagBucks. I average about 150-250 SwagBucks a day doing this.

There are also surveys. They are on a separate site but you get a swagbuck for every survey you attempt. I think it is a buck. I am not really sure. I hate surveys. It seems that I spend 20 mins telling them everything they want to know and then don't qualify so I don't do them. No idea what the daily potential is in that quarter.

I gave up on Swagbucks awhile back. It was just too slow to earn anything. I would do the daily things, but that just got me a couple of points. I would use their search engine, but it was a horrible search engine and I'd only use it if I had time to search over and over. Most times I still ended up having to go to Google. The surveys were a joke. I'd spend 5 minutes entering tons of data only to be told, after I had answered a lot of product specific questions, that I didn't qualify or I'd finish and then be told they had enough people already. It was a huge waste of my time.

I had used Swagbucks in the past and had given it up for the reasons mentioned above. I recently started again to earn some GC for our trip. It is quite slow to earn the points and I do a TON of searching throughout the day. I just cashed out for a 50.00 gift card . Many times I also have to go to google to searcha nd I do find it runs very slowly.I get the daily point, daily poll point and have also tried the surveys which many times say you don't qualify after you have indeed entered a lot of info. I find it is mostly with teh high point surveys. If you search a lot and are going to do it anyway why not join swagbucks.

I do swagbucks, and agree, it's slow earning, but it's better than nothing. What do you get for watching SwagTV??

Every 10 videos gives you 3 swagbucks. Some videos are longer than others. I stick to the ones that are shorter at 1-2 mins a video. I just turn the sound off so I am not listening to them.

There are also offers and shopping through them. I don't do offers as I am the person that forgets to cancel and ends up paying for a few months. I like SwagBucks. At $25-$50 a month I am not complaining. It is easy money and goes straight to my Disney fund.

I have been doing swagbucks for a couple of years. I aim to earn 200sbs a day. Some days I hit my goal and exceed it, some days I don't. I cash out for amazon gift cards. My goal this year is to get $75/month (and, so far, I have been successful.) I am saving up for Christmas. I should have around $900 by then. yay!

I also do swtv, auto refresh, I have it set at 70 seconds. I will warn you in the beginning, there will be capchas, but as long as you don't let it run too long once you max out, you should be good. Normally takes 7-8 hours to max out that way for my 200 sbs. I also do the 2sbs for watching a video. I also print my coupons through their coupon printer, you get 10 SBs for every coupon you use! (Same coupons as through coupons.com) You can really stack up that way. Sometimes I just print out extra coupons and leave them around the store, especially in the diaper/wipes area of Target.

I normally cash in for five $5 Amazon GCs every month, but in January I saved up for the $50 Southwest GC and used it to book my Disney trip. I think I may start aiming at $50 Amazon a month so when the Black Friday deals come around, I can buy a new TV this year.

That is good way to get banned from swagbucks. You is not suppose to use a autofresh program.

Swagbucks is my favorite reward site. I cash out every three days easily. To make most swagbucks is do the daily poll, NOSO is just bunch of skips, toolbar gets 1 point a day, 10 points for playing game. Also look at the special offers and check to see if they have videos on them and sometimes you can the videos more than once. Swagbucktv is where I get most of my points from. I think every 10 videos you get three points. Also don't forget do search. Swagbucks have codes also too.

I can easily get at least 15 points day. Just do simple things everyday. Right now I am averge between 50 to 200 points a day. No do not spend all day on the computer either. I work two jobs. I do swagtv while on disboards and surfing the net.
