10 Easy Ways to Earn with Swagbucks

*This post contains affiliate links.

I've been using Swagbucks for a few years now and it's proven to be a consistent and easy way to earn some extra money for my family. Admittedly, I haven't been using it to it's full earning potential, but I'm trying to change that and I'm ramping up my strategy to earn more. So I thought I'd share some of my tips with you on how to start earning Swagbucks for gift cards today!

What is Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is a website where you earn by doing simple tasks such as searching the internet, watching videos, answering surveys, playing games, etc. Once you earn enough bucks you can turn them in for prizes or gift cards. I always turn my bucks in for Amazon gift cards. 

450 Swagbucks = $5 Amazon Gift Card

They have many more gift cards to choose from such as Walmart, Target and PayPal.

How do I sign up?

You can use my referral link below to sign up! It's fast, easy and you should get some bonus bucks just for setting up an account!

How do I start earning?

Below are 10 easy ways to start earning Swagbucks today!

1. Make Swagbucks your homepage OR install the toolbar.
 This may sound annoying, but I really believe that having easy access will get you into the habit of visiting and earning everyday. It's helped me a ton! Plus, you get 1 Swagbuck everyday just for having the tool bar installed!

2. Answer the Daily Poll.
You earn 1 Swagbuck just for answering the poll each day! This is located on the homepage under "To Do List."

3. Click through the NOSOs.
NOSO stands for "No Obligation Special Offer." Basically you just click through to the end and you will earn 2 Swagbucks everyday! This is also located on the homepage under the "To Do List."

4. Perform Internet Searches
You have a chance to win Swagbucks every time you search so search several times per day! I suggest doing real searches periodically, not spammy ones all in a row or you may get into some trouble.

5. Download the SBTV Mobile app to your phone.
I just did this recently and it's really helping me ramp up my earnings! You can earn 50 bucks daily just by using this app! I've been letting this play in the background while I'm making dinner, cleaning the house, etc and I'm earning money in the process!! You need to check it every so often to make sure you don't need to click on something to keep it going. Plus, keep it mind that it will run your battery down. You can also download the EntertainNow app to earn even more every day!

6. Perform tasks (mostly watching videos) with Encrave.
To do this you will go to the "Discover" tab at the top of the homepage and click on "Activities." You can let these videos run also to earn even more! A lot of times you will have to stay close to keep switching to new videos.

7. Refer Friends
Swagbucks will match the first 1,000 Swagbucks that your referrals earn through searches.

8. Fill out Surveys
Honestly, I don't spend a lot of time doing this because it can be frustrating to sit for 30 minutes and not qualify for anything, but when you do qualify you can earn lots of bucks pretty quickly!

9. Shop & Earn
I've never done this because I always forget, but if you use Swagbucks to click through to other websites to make purchases you will earn for every dollar spent!

10. Print and Redeem Coupons
You can print coupons through Swagbucks and earn when you redeem them!

Bonus Tip:
Swagbucks sets daily goals and if you meet them then you get bonus bucks! Also, if you meet your goals for a certain number of days you will earn even more bonus bucks!!

There are tons of other ways to earn such as playing games, performing tasks, finding swagcodes, filling out special offers, etc but I feel like these 10 that I've shared are the easiest and quickest ways to earn!

If so, what is your favorite way to earn? 


  1. Both my husband and I are avid swagbuckers! I have to be careful to not go over my data plan because one month I was so into using swagbucks that we had overage charges on the cell phone bill...oops! My husband loves doing the surveys. I like watching the video clips and the tasks that take less time. Love hearing how others use swagbucks. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I like hearing other swag success stories too! :)
