Daily Swagbucks Checklist

June 10th, 2014

NOTE: For more tips on maximizing your earnings, please check out my book available on Amazon Kindle – How To Earn Swagbucks: Earn Swag Bucks Quickly to Earn Gift Cards and Cash!

Each day, there are a few things I try to do on swagbucks, because there are some guaranteed ways to earn each day. There are some things you can do a certain number of times per day, and if you don’t do them, you can’t make it up the next day. So, here is kind of a daily swagbucks checklist:

– Do the daily poll/NOSO – 3 SB – This is the one everybody knows! Doing these two things quickly is a guaranteed 3 SB each day.

– Do the daily Encrave – 1 SB – This is right near  the daily poll/NOSO on the front page, and gives you an easy SB.

Play the games 10 times – 10 SB – This can take a few minutes, but it’s an easy way to get 10 SB.

Go to the special offers and complete the 1 SB offers – 5-10 SB – The quality of the offers can vary based on the day, but in general you can get at least 5-10 SB from this, and possibly even more.

Try at least five surveys – 5 SB – When you try surveys, for the first five times that you try and don’t qualify, you get 1 SB just for trying. Not bad! And worth your effort, especially because when you do quality, it’s a huge boost for you.

Just if you do those guaranteed ways of earning, that is at least about 25 SB per day. Plus, there are a few other things I do every day:

Get a search – Sometimes it can take awhile, but eventually I am usually able to get at least one search that earns me some SBs.

Do activities through Encrave – This is my favorite way to earn currently, because the potential earnings are almost endless. You can get as many SBs for as much as you want to put into it, with some potentially large rewards. I usually can get 150-200 SB from encrave activities.

Watch Swagbucks TV – I just cycle through videos while I am at work, which can add up to a good chunk of earnings throughout the day.

Look out for Swag Codes – These will usually only get you 2-4 SB, but that is not bad for just pasting a code in.

What are some other ways that you are earning SB lately?

May Daily Swag Goal Bonuses Received – 933 SB

June 6th, 2014

I have written in the past about the nice boost from reaching your daily swag goals, and that was most true for me in May, when I got my biggest bonuses ever.

In May, I reached my goal every day (300 SB bonus), and with some rather large second goals, it made the bonus even higher. In total, I got 933 SB as my bonuses. Here is the proof, a screenshot from Swagbucks (click on picture to enlarge):

Earning Swagbucks With Encrave

June 5th, 2014

NOTE: For more tips like this, please check out my ebook on Amazon Kindle, How To Earn Swagbucks: Earn Swag Bucks Quickly to Earn Gift Cards and Cash!

Right now, I think the most consistently solid way for you to be earning swagbucks is through Encrave. It’s not necessarily a fast way to earn, but you can almost always be doing some type of encrave activity, which means it allows you to consistently rack up the swagbucks. Right now, it is how I earn most of my rewards (over 50%).

To get there, you scroll over “Discover” on the top bar, and then click to “Encrave.” Once there, you will see a lot of options, which can be a bit overwhelming. Also, the potential activities are changing all the time (even the same activities can sometimes have different names), so it helps to know what to look for. I’ll go through a few of my favorite activities here:

Encrave 1

If you see this one, it will be worth 4 SB. You will go to a page with 8 videos, and you will have to click one, wait for a green checkmark to appear (which should take 30 seconds or so), and then click the next one. Continue you this until all 8 have checkmarks next to them, and it’s an easy 4 SB. This one usually disappears early in the day and only re-appears sporadically.

Encrave 3

This is just like the first one, except there are only 2 videos, and you get 1 SB for watching it.

.

- With this activity, you get 3 SB, but it's a little bit harder. It will open to a series of videos, and you need to click to enable continuous play. Then, you need to keep your mouse on that screen, which makes it a bit more inconvenient than the first two activities. However, it usually finishes within 5 minutes or so.

- This is just like the sports one above, except for this activity you get 4 SB, but it can take 15-20 minutes to complete. I click this one and let it play if I know I won't be by the computer for a bit afterwards.

A few other tips:

– Specific activities are coming and going all the time, even throughout the same day. You sometimes have to experiment if your favorite encrave activities are not there at the moment. It can sometimes be frustrating.

– The videos toward the bottom that have the circle arrow on the bottom left mean that you can hit continuous play, and just let them play out without having to click anything (though the mouse usually has to be in the screen). For many of the other ones, you have to hit if you like or dislike the video, which makes it less ideal if you are going to be walking away from the computer.

– My favorite are the ones like the first two pictures above, where you can click and minimize, and then bring it back up when you have time, but these types of activities seem to be fewer and further between.

Any other Encrave tips?

Swagbucks Raises $60M of Funding

May 27th, 2014

A couple weeks ago it was announced that Swagbucks has raised $60M of funding from Technology Crossover Ventures, which was its first round of funding. They also appointed a new CEO.

There are a couple of other interesting nuggets from the Tech Crunch article:

The company says it has been profitable since 2010 and its 2013 revenue was $53 million, a 51% increase from 2012.

The new funding from TCV will be invested in mobile, product development, and expansion into international markets. Davis said that Swagbucks’ website currently offers six activities for members seeking rewards, while its mobile platform includes search, deals and entertainment.

“Our growth plan is to make each of these channels more robust, leveraging technologies intrinsic to mobile such as GPS — as well as to migrate our other channels to mobile in an intuitive and user-friendly experience,” said Davis.

While this article doesn’t contain any tips on how to earn more swagbucks, it’s an interesting look inside the business of the site, which users rarely get to see. Plus, it contains good news for swaggers… the fact that the company has been profitable since 2010, and now has some extra funding dedicated to improving the user experience are all very good signs for the long-term growth of the site.

It appears there are still many good things in store for the future of the site!

Most Swagbucks Earned In A Day

May 22nd, 2014

Want to earn more swagbucks? Check out my ebook, How To Earn Swagbucks: Earn Swag Bucks Quickly to Earn Gift Cards and Cash! available on Amazon Kindle.

One thing I have always been curious about is the most swagbucks that someone has earned in a single day. I am sure plenty of people have broken the 1,000 mark, but I wonder how high people can get if they just focus on swagging all day long.

For myself, I have reached the 600 mark in a single day once or twice. Sometimes that was due to some big special offers, and one time it was due to a lot of work on the encrave activities. My normal seems to be around the 200-300 SB per day for a weekday, when I am around my computer all day at work.

However, I would be curious to know what your record for most earned in a single day is? Have you ever reached the 1,000 mark? Do you think it’s possible?

Easy Swagbucks with Special Offers

May 13th, 2014

NOTE: Tips like this and many others can be found in my ebook, How To Earn Swagbucks: Earn Swag Bucks Quickly to Earn Gift Cards and Cash! which is available for 99 cents on your Amazon Kindle.

Here is a quick way to get a few swagbucks per day, perhaps anywhere from 5-15 in just about a minute.

At the top of your screen under the “Discover” button is a section called “Special Offers.” At first, it might seem like a convoluted mess of a bunch of things, many of which you have to pay for. Indeed, that’s what it is. But there is a quick way to get swagbucks here too.

First, this is the screen you will see when you first get to the special offers page:

Special Offers 2

From there, I usually go to RadiumOne first. Once there, you will still see a lot of offers for varying amounts, some which are free and some which require you to spend money. To make sense of it all, I sort these from low payout to high, so it looks like this:

Special Offers

You will notice that there are a lot of offers worth 1 Swag Buck. These are great because all you need to do is click on them to open one, and you will almost always get credited your 1 SB immediately. Eight are seen here (picked at a random time in the morning), but there was even more than these. If you do this early in the day and it’s your first time of the day doing it, you can usually get 12-15 SB from doing this, and it will take you maybe 30 seconds to go through them all.

Typically, this is all that I do in Special Offers, because everything else doesn’t seem to be all that time-effective. However, if you do find yourself with some free time, you can go through more RadiumOne offers, as well as PeanutLab offers. If you are willing to spend money, you can earn even more, but I basically stay away from that.

I should also note that I sometimes have success using this Special Offers method more than once per day. While the subsequent times usually aren’t as lucrative, they can still net a few SB here and there. The best time to this is right in the morning, as it seems like the most good offers are available during that time.

Redeem Paypal Through Swagbucks

April 18th, 2014

I have talked before about how $5 Amazon gift cards are the best reward on swagbucks, which is still true on a per dollar basis. They offer better value then anything else because they are a little bit discounted.

However, I have often lamented the fact that you could not redeem anything and get straight up cash for your work. Well, that is not true anymore. I have found that you can redeem your swagbucks for paypal, which is just as good as money since you can just then transfer it right to your bank account (which is what I do).

The trick is that your swagbucks email has to be the same email as your paypal account email. As long as that is the case, you can redeem your swagbucks for paypal. If it is not, then you have two options – start a new swagbucks account, or start a new paypal account. There are three different sizes you can get:

– $25 paypal for 2,500 swagbucks
– $50 paypal for 5,000 swagbucks
– $100 paypal for 10,000 swagbucks

At this time, I am not sure if there is a limit on how many you can order per month (like there is a limit of 5 $5 Amazon gift cards per month.

But, now there is a way to get cash for your swagbucks, which I find is a great motivator for me to get more. It’s nice to get Amazon gift cards or any other type of gift cards, but nothing is better than actually getting a cash reward!

Swagbucks Daily Goal Bonus – Do You Have to Reach Second Goal?

April 9th, 2014

A few months ago, swagbucks added a second daily goal bonus, so instead of there being just one daily goal, there are two daily goals with different bonuses.  So, that raised the question of whether you need to reach just the first daily goal, or both daily goals in order to keep your streak of daily goals going.

The answer is that you only need to reach the first daily goal in order to continue your streak.

So, let’s say you have six straight days of reaching the daily goal. On the seventh day, your first goal is 90, and your second goal is 150. If you only get 100, that would meet the first goal but not the second goal. This would still be enough to continue your streak, which would push you to seven straight days, and give you a 25 point swagbucks bonus, payable the next month.

Hope that answers any questions, but let me know if there are any more.

Swagbucks Accelerator Review

March 25th, 2014

A few months ago, Swagbucks added the “Swagbucks Accelerator”  which you have probably noticed if you’ve spent much time on the site. Basically, you pay money, and you have a chance to boost your swagbucks earnings. Right now there are two options:

– $4.99 and they will match up to 700 swagbucks per month.
– $9.99 and they will match up to 1500 swagbucks per month.

They match all of your swagbucks earned (not just for specific categories), and it appears in your account the day after the previous billing cycle. (For example, let’s say you sign up on the 25th… then you should see the bonus put in your account on the 26th of each month).

So, is it worth it? From a purely financial perspective, yes.

Since 1500 swagbucks can get you $15 worth of gift cards, and you can get that for $9.99, that is a good deal. If you are using your swagbucks to redeem paypal rewards, or to pay for things that you need or would otherwise buy, it is a good deal.

Many people use swagbucks just to get Amazon gift cards, and pay for things they want (but don’t need). If that is the case, I wouldn’t shell out for the Accelerator, because you are just spending $9.99 extra, and it will go toward things you don’t need.

Also, it should go without saying to only get the package for the amount of swagbucks that you earn. If you are only earning about 800 per month, it would not make any sense to go with the $9.99 plan, because you will be paying extra but not reaping the benefits. Only get the $9.99 plan if you are routinely getting 1500 swagbucks per month.

Do you have Swagbucks Accelerator? Have you found it to be a good deal?
