*Swagbucks is quite a well known ‘get paid to’ company and this is my Swagbucks review. You can earn points, redeemable for a vast array of rewards (including Amazon and Paypal) for completing a number of different activities.
You can earn points on purchases, receive free codes to enter several times a day for points (via FB, Twitter, the Swagbucks blog), earn points for searching the internet (usually awarded around 4 times a day after 5-10 searches), playing games, answering surveys, watching videos and much more.
I tend to just visit *Swagbucks for around 5-10 minutes a day in total. I will make a few searches a few times a day, to find points, I will enter any codes my friend texts me or that I see on Facebook, Twitter or the Swagbucks blog (rare that I look here).
I also complete a daily poll and click on the ‘NOSO’ which asks you to click a button several times to scroll past some adverts before awarding you points.
The points conversion varies depending on the amount of points you are redeeming and saving up will save you some points, although I tend to just cashout when I have enough for £25 Amazon. This takes around 5-10 working days to arrive.
I tend to input any codes I come across, do a few searches a few times a day, complete the odd survey I find here that isn’t available anywhere else (maybe once a week if that) and I will also sometimes run ‘Encrave’.
Encrave requires you to have a small series of videos running, for a reward of a few points. This adds up over the day although this tends to stop running for the day about 4pm UK time, sometimes later or slightly earlier.
This isn’t a big earner for me but it soon adds up and I try and save my vouchers for Christmas and Birthdays throughout the year. I average about £25-30 a month, for a small amount of effort, as I find most surveys are available elsewhere, usually for more money.
