Why I Think Swagbucks Is Worth It

I think Swagbucks is worth it. Swagbucks has paid for many little splurges in our families life and I spend very little extra time on the program.

Why Swagbucks is worth it

Recently I received a comment on a post from a reader that was very dissatisfied with her personal Swagbucks Experience. She called Swagbucks a gimmick, and stated that the program was a string of long surveys with little payout.

I do agree that the surveys are very time consuming, which is why I personally do not do them, nor do I include them in any of my Swagbucks earning plans including

These 5 plans above show people how to earn anywhere from $20 a month to as much as $75 a month and  not a single one include filling out surveys.

 Swagbucks is not a gimmick, it does provide a simple small source of monthly income for very little effort. Most earning opportunities are not time consuming, in fact most of the earning opportunities are things I would normally do every day for instance

1. I use Swagbucks toolbar for all my daily searches, instead of another search engines so that I can earn points randomly through out the day. Daily this costs me zero extra time.

2. When I shop online I make sure to enter my store of choice into the toolbar so that I can then click on the box that will track my spending and give me points for my earnings. Daily this costs me zero extra time.

3. I do by my daily deals through Swagbucks. This requires just one extra step that takes me under 30 seconds.

4. I do print coupons off the Swagbucks website. I don’t do this often but if I wasn’t printing them off Swagbucks I would be printing them else where so this requires zero extra time.

There are a few extra things I do to boost my earnings that take very little time

5. I do share what I earn from time to time with my Facebook friends (both now and before I had a blog). This takes under  30 seconds to click the button right the post and press send.

6. I do perform both the daily poll and the NOSO every day. This takes me just under or over a minute each day.

7. I do use the Swagbucks App. This takes me less than a minute to set up and then I glance at it from time to time to make sure it is still going.

8. I do takes less than 2 minutes a day to earn my daily Bing credits which I convert to Swagbucks.

The extra steps I take to earn Swagbucks on a regular basis add up to less than 5 minutes a day. Are my earnings worth 5 minutes a day, yes. We are a single income family on a tight budget, the amount I earn on Swagbucks increases our wiggle room.

So yes readers, Swagbucks is worth it, and no readers Swagbucks is not a gimmick, it is a point program that pays you to do things you normally do every day, as well as offer you options to spend more time on if you so desire.

  1. With doing all of those things that take less than five minutes, how many Swagbucks do you earn on average each day?

    • Victoria says:

      It depends on the day, but I earn on average 17 points for daily searches. The NOSO gives me 2 points. The Daily poll gives me 1 point. The Swagbucks app. videos give me 50 points. So that is 70 Swagbucks, just from the basic sources. If I bought a daily deal, or shopped recently through Swagbucks, or it was bonus day pay out, all those things make my daily earnings much higher. Then I also convert my Bing Rewards to Swagbucks giving me at least another 500 points a month. All these things don’t take long and really start to add up points.
