5 Ways To Make Quick And Easy Money Online

Updated on April 6, 2015

Everyone dreams about earning passive income with minimal effort. However, when you see those sketchy advertisements online about earning money from home you are quick to turn away. With the help of this article you will be able to trust and feel safe using these sites to earn money online.

#1 - Swagbucks

This site is often seen as the king of earning money online. It offers games, surveys, videos and many other tasks to earn Swagbucks which you can then redeem for gift cards and other merchandise.

Country Restrictions: Swagbucks only operates in the following countries United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland.

Currency: 100 Swagbucks is equivalent to 1 dollar.

Payout: You can choose to redeem your points in the form of numerous different gift cards or have the money directly deposited into your Paypal account. There are also numerous sweepstakes, also called swagstakes, which is basically a raffle system. However, it is highly recommended that you avoid these sweepstakes as it is negative value for your Swagbucks.


  • Download the Swagbutton for your internet browser. This extension gives you an initial 50SB and 1SB per day.
  • Download the swagbucks tv mobile app. This app lets you watch videos, for every 5 videos you watch you are credited with 2SB. Look for the shortest videos and add them into your favorites ( search for 10 second tip videos). Once there are 2 to 3 short videos in your favorites let them auto play. Another tip, this app has a limit of 36SB per day so after around 10 minutes of auto play feel free to turn off the app.
  • Fill out the daily poll every day. It is 1 click and credits 1 SB.
  • If all these tips are followed, at the end of the month you will have about 2000 SB in your account. This about 20 dollars for absolutely no work.

      @chuckandus6 Thank you for the kind words! Regarding your comment, I agree that Swagbucks is quite frustrating when it comes to their surveys. What I recommend for Swagbucks is that you only do the daily poll, and watch the videos on the app. This will be enough points for you to be able to redeem the $20 gift card monthly. However, if you do want to do surveys I would also recommend a site like QuickRewards. This site will offer much greater rewards when it comes to surveys.
