Swagbucks Saving App Review
Swagbucks is a money saving App that allows you to earn points that you can redeem for gift cards.
I figured I’d actually use the Swagbucks app on my cell phone first and then tell you straight from experience whether it works or not.
So the first question that I’m typically asked is, “Is Swagbucks legitimate?” The short answer is as of the date this post is that it is legitimate and yes, I have successfully redeemed and used gift cards from this site.
How Does Swagbucks App Work ?
You perform simple tasks and for each task you complete you earn Swagbuck points. Swagbuck points are credits that you can redeem for Gift cards and other discounts. I’ve only redeemed Ebay and Amazon gift cards so far and they worked just fine. There’s other major retailer offering gift cards too.
One Swagbuck is worth approximately 1 United States penny.
What Tasks Does Swagbucks Have You Perform To Earn Credit?
There a couple way to earn Swagbucks. I primarily prefer to take surveys. These take time. Upfront Swagbucks gives you a list of surveys, the approximate time it will take you to complete and how many Swagbucks you’ll earn for completing a survey. So for example, it may offer you a list of surveys to choose from. They vary in Swagbuck value, and the values change but for example, you might see a 5 minute survey for 50 Swagbucks or 10 minute survey worth 100 swagbucks (about one United States dollar).
You can also use their search engine, which is powered by Yahoo. You won't get Swagbucks for every search. Swagbucks randomly offers points just for searching.
I don’t do this often, but you can watch videos and earn Swagbucks as well. I’ve successfully done this but don’t do it often because I prefer completing surveys.
Choose Your Survey By The Time It Takes And Value
How Much Can You Earn Using Swagbucks?
It depends on what tasks you do and how much time you dedicate to those tasks. Surveys you'll do maybe a few bucks an hour if you really work at, but as I mention don't go nuts and burn yourself out. See the tips below.
Redeeming the Swagbucks you earn is easy. Click on redeem, pick what you want to redeem for you Swagbucks and they’ll email you an order number. Within 10 days they’ll email you the Gift card code. You won’t get an actual card. I recently got a $10 Amazon gift card via a code emailed to me for 1000 Swagbucks. I simply entered the code on my Amazon account. It worked with Amazon without a problem.
You won’t get rich doing Swagbucks but every little bit of money helps. I estimate, if you work at it, you’ll get a few bucks an hour. So don't devote a tremendous amount of time. Just use it when you time is cheapest, like periods you are sitting around waiting. I had a stroke so I go to many doctor appointments, blood tests etc. I spend time doing surveys in the waiting room. Sure I might only earn 50 cents worth of Swagbucks but it feels more productive than reading a magazine.
If you occasionally use their search engine (which is very primitive compared to what Firefox and Google run) you may get a few Swagbucks for doing something you were already going to research elsewhere.
I take the daily poll everyday. It’s one question worth one Swagbuck. If I do nothing else, I do the daily poll. It takes one second to answer one question (usually a simple question like "Do you watch TV on Wednesday?" Over time earning one Swagbuck daily will add up.
Do not, cheat by just dishonestly answering surveys. Be truthful and don't just give any answer. Same for running videos and not watching them, they have safeguards and you will not get credit for that task.
The more surveys you do the faster you'll get at taking surveys. This is because a lot of surveys have similar question and you'll take less time formulating an answer.
