My favorite way to spend my SB points (what points are called at Swagbucks) lately is the $25 Amazon card. The first one each month is just 2200 SB points (after that they are 2500 SB points).
Being a numbers geek I decided to add up just how many gift cards you could earn in one year if you were faithful to perform certain Swagbucks actions each and every day for 1 year.
10 Steps To Maximize Your Swagbucks Earnings
1. Download the toolbar
If you download the tool bar and use it just once a day you will receive 1 SB point per day.
1×365=365 SB points
2. Use All 4 Swagbucks Apps
- Swagbuck TV App 36 daily Swag Bucks
- EntertainNow App 18 daily Swag Bucks
- Sportly.TV App 18 daily Swagbucks
- Lifestylz App 18 daily Swagbucks
If you were to faithfully set your cell phone to cycle through all these different apps to the maximum of videos each day you would earn 90 SB a day which would equal 32,850 SB points over the course of a year.
Now of course few are going to be that dedicated but the potential is there.
3. Do the daily poll
This takes all of 2 seconds to do and earns you one SB point per day.
1×365=365 SB points
4. Do the NOSO daily
Each day you can do the NOSO it takes right under a minute to complete and is worth 2 Swag Bucks.
2×365=730 SB points
5. Watch the Swagbucks Channel
While your on your laptop taking care of simple tasks why not open up a window and run a bit of Swagbucks TV in the background. What you earn varies depending on what is available and how many points are offered.
I think a good estimate is 10 SB points a day that is 300 SB points a month: 300 x 12 = 3600 SB points per year
6. Print coupons
Swagbucks has a great coupon area. Make it a habit to check it before you run out to the grocery store and I am sure you will find at least one coupon each time you go shopping (worth 10 Swag Bucks) that will help you not only earn more Swag Bucks but also reduce your grocery bill.
I think a good estimate is 3 coupons a month which would be 30 SB points each month: 30 x 12 =360 SB points a year
7. Shop your favorite stores through the Swagbucks search engine
Do you shop online at places like Old Navy, Walmart or Target? If you do you can shop through the Swagbucks search engine and then click on the shop now box at the top where the SB points per dollar spent will pop up and be on your way to earning gift cards while you shop.
Now I am not a huge online shopper, I still shop at brick and mortar stores more than online still I earned 2,329 SB point in one year using Swagbucks shop and earn program.
If you try something and you love it you are going to want to tell others about it and Swagbucks is going to reward you for that. Currently you receive 10% of whatever your referrals earn (certain point earning actions only) for life.
Even before I had a blog I would share my Swagbucks earnings with my Facebook friends and if one asked what it was I would explain it and sometimes they would sign up. I usually signed up 1 or 2 people a month.
I think a good estimate for an average person is 6 new active members a year. If those 6 members earn 2500 SB points a month –which isn’t hard– that means you would earn 250 SB per referral giving you a total of 1500 SB points per month from your referrals. 1500 x 12 = 18000 SB points
9. Daily deals
If you go to a qualifying daily deal site through Swagbucks and make a purchase you will receive SB points in return. The amount of SB points fluctuates but right now you can get 5 points per dollar for Groupon purchases. I purchase roughly one daily deal a month with an average cost of $20 meaning..
20×5=100×12=1200 SB points in one year
10. Searching through the homepage or toolbar
This is my favorite way to earn because it is so simple. You need to download the Swagbucks toolbar or make the Swagbucks homepage your homepage or do both (I do both). Then use these for entering all your online searches and you can randomly win SB points . Sometimes it is just 6 but I have one as many as 49 in one search (sometimes it is zero). To get numbers for this one I took what I have learned the last 7 days and decided to make it the average you might earn per week.
211×52=10,972 SB points
These are just 10 ways to earn with Swagbucks but there are more, you can do surveys, perform online tasks, play games and more. In fact there are over 20 ways to earn SB points and new ways are added all the time.
Now on to the totals……
- Daily Poll: 365
- Daily Apps: 32,000
- Daily Toolbar use point: 365
- Daily NOSO: 730
- Daily Videos on PC or Laptop: 3,600
- Coupons: 360
- Shopping: 2,329
- Referrals: 18,000
- Daily Deal Sites: 1200
- Daily Searches: 10, 972
Total: 69,921 SB points which equals $699 in gift cards BUT if you take advantage of the 2200 SB point $25 gift card each month (available for all gift cards but PayPal) you bring your total earned up to $735.
That is enough money to pay for Christmas in many households.
Plus you still have over a dozen ways to earn that I haven’t gone over in my example.
You can sign up for your own Swagbucks account now and start earning your $700+ in gift cards each year.
