Recently I was reading a comment thread on Facebook discussing ways to earn Swagbucks, and I was surprised by all the people who did not know that Swagbucks had one app let alone several apps you could use to earn more gift cards through Swagbucks with.
11 Apps that Will Help You Reach Your Swagbucks Earning Goals
Here are a few pointers for using the Swagbucks apps
- I suggest using the video apps and perhaps even all the apps in areas where you can take advantage of free wifi or your home wifi.
- If you have an old smartphone or tablet around your home that is still up to date enough to run the apps you might want to use it, especially while running the apps where you earn SB points by watching videos. Doing so will allow you to keep the videos running uninterrupted for longer periods of time which will equal more SB points earned.
- When using the video apps I suggest you glance at your smartphone once and a while as the videos do pause from time to time and need to be restarted.

1. Swagbucks Mobile
The Swagbucks app allows you to do a lot of the same things as you can do on the homepage of Swagbucks on your laptop. If you hit the Discover tab, you can complete offers that interest you for Swag Bucks. Hit the Answer tab, and you can take the daily poll. Plus earn points randomly when you use the search bar found at the top of the apps home page. You can also check your balance and order rewards through the Swagbucks App.
2. Swagbucks Answer
This Swagbucks app contains survey activities only including the daily poll. My suggestion is to do the daily poll each day for the quick point you can earn from it daily. Yes, a point is essentially only a penny, but it takes just a second to do. As for the other survey options in the app, I suggest you do them during down times in your day, like when you are watching TV before bed.
3. Swagbucks Local
This app is only for those who live in the large metropolitan areas where the service is offered. The app lists all the restaurants and shops where you can eat or shop at and earn points. For this service to work, you have to first link a debit or credit card to your Swagbucks account. If you don’t feel comfortable with that–don’t use this app.
4. Swagbucks Shop
One of my favorite ways to earn SB points through Swagbucks is through their shop and earn section. I use it on my laptop, but those who prefer to shop using their smartphones can use the Swagbucks Shop app.
5. Swagbucks Watch
Get SB points that you can cash in for gift cards by watching videos. Simply get the videos going and earn points.
Earn SB points while watching videos about latest movie releases and celebrity gossip.
Earn SB points while watching videos about travel destinations and home decor.
Earn SB points while watching videos of movie and TV clips.
Earn SB points while watching short exercise routines.
10. Amped 360
Earn SB points while watching videos about extreme sports.
Earn SB points while watching video clips of music by independent labels.
