Hi teens ^^ Happy New Year 2016 !

A new year has begun. Are you planning to do anything special? Considering that you’re here on our site, I bet you are looking for a way to generate a little extra cash, aren’t you? However, you might feel not so willing to commit yourself to sitting in front of the computer screen, doing laborious and monotorous tasks over and over again just to earn a few bucks. Yay, you are in the right place. We are in for a trip to find out more about Swagbucks: One of the most trusted sites for teens to make money online which offers you a plethora of ways to boost your finance while chilling out at home.

Let our journey begin!


1. An overall look

Swagbucks is an online rewards and cash back program where you get paid to click. The site enables users to earn a virtual currency (points) called Swag Bucks (SB), just by performing a variety of normal online activities as you always do almost everyday, such as searching, shopping, taking surveys, playing games, and discovering online content. You can then easily redeem accumulated SB points for $5 – $25 retail gift cards for Amazon, PayPal, Target, Walmart, and Starbucks, PayPal cash, or other rewards.

One plus mark is that it is completely free to sign up, unlike some others where you are required to put forth money to join the site or register code. The typical earning is 25$ per month, but for those dedicated the number is surely many times bigger. However, the site is available only in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, and Australia and members are required to be 13 years old or older.


Wait, doen’t it sound too good to be true? Some skeptics out there may doubt whether the site actually works as it claims to do, or “Is Swagbucks legit?“. Good news ! The answer is yes ! Indeed, Swagbucks ranks among the top sites, also has successfully established the faith in online money minners. The company has been operating since 2005 and have 1,800,000 fans on Facebook. That has got to be something, right? Furthermore, BBB, the biggest scam watching dog site has also rated Swagbucks as A+. Well, I guess it is all settled!

Today I am naming out tasks that you can do to earn money with Swagbucks. On the next post, we are going to take a deeper dive and I will give you a step-by-step guide on how to register and get the job done.

2.  6 fastest ways to earn SB points

The 6 fastest ways to earn SB points in exchange for cash or rewards are Searching, Taking Survey, Shopping, Watching Videos, Playing Games and using Swagbucks Coupons/Deals. 

2.1 Searching the Web


Getting paid for something that we do nearly everyday sounds such amazing. All you are asked to do is to use Swagbucks’s search engine instead of the others like Google, Bing or Yahoo. Advertisers pay Swagbucks to publicise their wares or do market research. That’s how the site passes a cut to you.

Since the search engine is powered by Yahoo, the result shown is exactly the same to what you would see if you used Yahoo search bar.


Some myths go that if you search for common and popular words, there are more chances of receiving higher points. Well, not true and not neccessary. Earning per search is in fact totally random, so you can never know exactly how much you will earn for the next time. The good thing is that the whole task appears to be pretty enjoyable and effortless. Yay, the next time you can lie on a couch, type whatever thing in the search bar then produce some pocket money already.

Here are some tips to earn more:

  • Make it the default search engine in your browser.
  • Install their browser extension.

2.2 Shop and Get Cash

I was a little bit confused when I first came to this shopping section, but it’s in fact pretty simple. To put it in a nutshell, use Swagbucks’ Shop for all of your online purchase. That’s how to earn SB for every dollar that you spend at any stores they offer


As you can see above, Amazon offers you 7 SBs for every $1 spent. So next time you make a $100 purchase at Amazon. That will yield as many as 700 SBs! 

2.3 Taking Survey

Probably, it’s one of the quickest ways to earn as little things required. However, it can also be time-consuming as some surveys take up to more than half an hour to finish.


The average point earned per survey is around 75 SB. But as you can see, there are surveys that offer you more than 150 SB within 15-minute completion. Take these tips :

  • Make a list.
  • Pick up survey wisely. 

Then you can earn up to $6-9/hour. Yay ^^


2.4 Playing Games

To be honest, it is funny how they are actually paying us to play these games. The system is pretty simple. Similar to how the Shopping section works, you will get cash back for every dollar spent.


2.5 Watching Videos

Frankly speaking, I was like : Am I really going to be paid for doing this? YES! And YES!


This might seem not so profitable at first glance as the number of SB yielded is relatively low compared to the others. Let’s do some tricks :)) Why not get it on play while you browse the net or do surveys? In that way, you can generate more SB at one time. Such a bargain for those wants to earn a living by watching TV. Maybe they’re born for you. But sadly, they limit us to earn 150 SB a day.


2.6 Using Coupons and Deals

Here on the site you can find numerous coupons and deals of all kinds and uses. Print this out. Use it whenever making a purchase at the grocery store. Not only can you save your money, but you can also generate quite a large amount of SB all along.



A brief explanation of how it opperates. Quite a good deal, isn’t it?
