How to Make Money on Swagbucks

I have shared with others constantly how they should be using some sort of site that offers cash back. Especially if they shop online as often as I do. It just doesn’t make sense not to! If you’ve never done anything like this, let me walk you through it step by step so you too can earn free gift cards and money every month. Here are my tips and tricks on how to make money on Swagbucks and the method that allows me to earn the most Swag bucks quickly. (referral codes present)

How to Use Swagbucks

We have used these methods to get tons of Swagbucks rewards like free Amazon and Starbucks gift cards as other goodies. The most popular thing people strive for is that this is how to get into Disneyland for free too! Seriously, I’m not kidding you.

  • I wouldn’t share anything that didn’t work for me personally and wasn’t easy to do, this is!!

It is a passive way to earn extra money at home. I mean if you shop online anyway, why wouldn’t you use this method to get free Amazon gift cards for instance? Those help buy household goods, and a great way to travel for free which we do often.

Can you make good money on Swagbucks

  • For sure!! First – Signs up for Swagbucks account (and get a $10 bonus when you do)
    • You can do this on your phone or desktop – I would suggest doing it either way but then log in on both so you’re earning Swagbucks no matter what device you’re using.
    • Download the APP on your phone so if you shop online on your phone you’ll earn there too.
  • Then – Make Swagbucks your default browser (watch the video below to show you how to do this)
    • You can also or alternatively download the browser extension once you’re logged in, I did both
  • This is how to earn free gift cards really quickly because you’ll earn points each time you search the web, even if you aren’t buying anything!

You should have it done already after following this video step by step but if you want pictures to do it I have instructions that way as well here. Now I am going to go over how to passively earn points to redeem later for your favorite freebies.

You can only do this part on your desktop or laptop. It isn’t hard to do and so let’s start here and then go further.

How do Swagbucks Payout

Note that this won’t be overnight, it does take time to gather enough to get something really big. That is why you should plan ahead at the beginning of each year.

If you want to aim for tickets somewhere and you’ll need a lot, set your sites to it. Do all the surveys and set all the browsers in your house to gather points to the SAME account.

  • Then earn more Swagbucks / points by logging into your account (I always stay logged in) and do the following things
    • Take online surveys
      • answering surveys can be done any time of day and almost all day long
    • Watch videos
    • Check out new content
    • Play games through their site
    • Sign up for services
    • Take advantage of special offers each month
    • Swagbucks tv is a new feature to earn points
