The Lazy Way to Earn on Swagbucks

I thought I'd do another quick post about Swagbucks because I love it... and you will too!  This is going to be the lazy way to earn on Swagbucks, because guess what, I don't have time to sit there and sign up for a million offers, and to be honest (Swagbucks I hope you are reading this), I HATE HATE HATE those stupid Lifescript sign ups!  I'll get in to that later.  But here are my easy ways to earn...

1. Daily Poll - sure, it's only 1 point (aka $0.01), but it's easy, and fun to see how people answer.  It's on your homepage every day.

2. Install the Extension - Super easy, you can use it to search, but more importantly, it sends you notifications when there are 'Swag Codes' available.  Usually only 3 points, but hey they add up and take no time.  Just insert the code into the extension and good to go.  PS, you usually get a bonus for the first time you download this sucker.

3.  Install the Swagbucks App - There are on occasion 'Swag Codes' that can only be entered on your app, so it's good to have.  It will also send you the same alerts as above (should you not be sitting on a computer all day).  I believe there is also a bonus for your first download.

4.  Shopping! - Ok this is one of my favorites.  And where it can get interesting, so I will actually do a whole part on this for the next post.  But basically you can earn a % back for your normal shopping, much like those reward sites like Mr. Rebates and Ebates.

5. Swagbucks Search - Literally the easiest way to earn.  Just make Swagbucks your search default, sorry Google.  When you do your normal online searching, occasionally a 'Swagbuck' will appear!  Type in the code and there you go.  These range from 5-100 so it's pretty awesome.
Yes, that is a 99 you see that I got!


6. Signing Up For Offers - I enjoy when they have offers (generally in the 'Discover' or 'Popular Offers' sections) like this one when I signed up for Fragrant Jewels.  I signed up for a trial of Food Stirs, which I will also be posting on later.  But most recently, I signed up for the Shoe Dazzle offer.

For this, I signed up to take the 'quick questionnare' which gave me 40 points.  If you make your first purchase you received another 1000 points (that's $10), and on top of that, your first shoe purchase is $10!  So I signed up, made my purchase, and as soon as the shoes arrived, I canceled my VIP membership.  Basically I received a free pair of shoes! : )

There are tons of annoying offers too, so make sure you hover over the offer to read the details.  I honestly say avoid any of the Lifescript offers... I have yet to complete one because they are so long and confusing.  You just keep getting sent to additional pages, I mean WTH?!?!

7. Refer Your Friends - This goes for every rebate site, but yes, you can earn for the referrals... and once they earn 500 SB, you will receive a portion of their Swagbucks too!

My Not So Suggested Suggestions....

8.  Surveys - If I'm super bored, or need to push my Swagbucks points over to hit a number I'll hop in to the survey section.  If you don't qualify for the survey they (are supposed to) give you 1 point anyway.  The annoying part here is that quite often it will tell you it is a 5 minute survey, and then you will be given 10 minutes of qualifying questions only to be booted out because you don't qualify. : (

9. Watch Videos - Ok this is my least favorite, but one you can fudge.  You can get 2-3 points for watching videos... but they aren't exactly short, and they are usually in sets of 10-15.  BUT if you can start them on your computer on mute, and not actually watch it (shhhhh don't tell Swagbucks), then you can get a few more points.


Yes, there are MANY more ways to earn Swagbucks, but who has time for that crap?  Stay tuned for how I do my online shopping, like Hautelook, through Swagbucks.


Once you stock up on some bucks, you can redeem them for gift cards of your choosing, like Amazon.  Unlike most rebate websites, you don't have to hit a certain number or wait for the month to end.  You can literally cash out for a $3 Amazon gift card.
