Optimize Earnings on Swagbucks

United States
January 2, 2013 5:14pm CST
How do you Optimize your earnings on Swagbucks? Sure, there's the daily polls, and the NOSO, but how do you earn the quick buck with little time? The Search bar gives a quick buck, though only gives you some within an interval. Special offers are fairly annoying to do, and often don't grant you the bucks. (Be sure to also make note of the amount of time acquired to convince the guy over at the customer service link to give you the bucks after giving them evidence.) It really only leaves you left with referrals, surveys, SBTV, SBTV Mobile App, & Swagbucks Giveaways. Referrals are pretty self-explanatory, though how do you get the most out of your day using surveys, and SBTV? Though I put Giveaways in the list, there's no certain way of getting the prize. As far as the SBTV mobile applications go, SBTV for apple is basically a godsend. It's essentially an autopilot, and unlike its Android older twin, the app doesn't make as many advertisements you have to close out of to make the app keep working. As for SBTV itself, I'm a bit flabbergasted by how to get the most out of it, if it indeed claims that you get a daily maximum at 75 swagbucks a day.

Well what I do on swagbucks is I do the daily polls, the NOSO, I also look at the home page to see if they have anything on there like clips to watch, I do search, SBTV and of course special officers. some times I also do the survey's but not all of the time.

I used to do surveys very often, and I remember being credited for a couple of surveys that paid out at most 500 swagbucks for 30 minutes. Greatest surveys of all time in my opinion. Of course, it told me to download an application which was a Keynote connector plug-in for Chrome / Firefox. Have you seen these surveys? If so, they're definitely worth installing. Last I checked, the plug-in hasn't destroyed my computer!

Darn.. I can't really think of one. Though I'm fairly certain that most sites like Swagbucks (iRazoo / Zoombucks) as well as the site itself are fairly international. You will be able to get virtual items like cash from PayPal or Amazon Gift Cards, you won't be able to get (let's say) a shirt from the country.

With Swagbucks TV, you can get each video going, then tab over to Mylot, write a couple of posts, then tab back to SBTV and move onto the next video. That way, you don't waste your time watching the SBTV. It's called multi-tasking or multi-tabbing. The SBTV keep on showing whether you are on that tab or on a different tab. That's when I add up points on SB - by multi-tasking or multi-tabbing. :)

That is exactly what I do as well. I keep a window open with SBTV open whenever I am here on mylot. I minimize that window to where I can see the counter and the next videos and move them into the right hand corner of my screen. Then I will shrink the window that I have mylot in so that I can see those important things and I will switch the video after my counter has moved up. I am usually able to make about 30-42 swagbucks a day while I am multitasking with mylot.

Well I wont be so useful because I don't make a lot of SB's a day. The only way I can make it is by daily poll, NOSO, videos if there are any and SBTV and of course if I'm lucky to get good ones in searches. I struggle to even get to 2500 SB's quickly to cash out but if you are committed and can sit there all day doing SBTV then you will make a bit. I can' only really do it a certain number of times a day as I don't like to sit in front of the computer. Todays daily goal is 100SB's so I'm not even going to bother trying as I don't make that much a day

I'm guessing you use swagbucks for the PayPal cards? Mind if I ask how to redeem PayPal Gift Cards? I've heard that you have to contact the company through customer support to redeem it, though I'm not completely sure of how it goes. Ohoho, and trust me, I personally don't like going through SBTV. It's why I use the Mobile App, because I can let my tablet run it and not really have to worry, though I do earn SBTV when I'm doing something else like some schoolwork.

See I don't have a smart phone or tablet otherwise I would be doing that too and making 50SB's nice and easy Yes I usually go for the paypal and when you first redeem you either have to get a code mailed to you or give them your mobile number and they will SMS the code to you. This is just a once off thing then afterwards you can just redeem. I used my mobile, mum used mail and since then there has been no spam so it's safe

McCreeper, there isn't any PayPal card from Swagbucks. They just send a normal PayPal payment to you using the email address you have on your Swagbucks account. All you need to do is make sure that the information on your PayPal account is the same as the information on your Swagbucks account. They won't make a payment to you if it's different.

Well, I don't own an android or apple product at the current time so earning through SBTV mobile isn't an option for me right now (although I have to admit that I loved it when I had my best friend's phone for several weeks during the fall). However, I do still find that I am typically able to make at least 75 swagbucks each and every day. I always do all four of the daily activities, so that is 4 swagbucks right off the top. When I'm working on other websites, I'm also running SBTV on my computer as well in another window. I check out the special offers every day and I will always try to do the ones that are video because those are always quick and easy. And I always try to get the swagcodes as well. When I need a few more swagbucks, I will check out the Swagbucks Offers that Credit page on facebook and see what offers are working for other people.

Have you ever exhausted the special offers on the day that you're looking at them? As it seems for me, I've never been able to fully get most of my swagbucks from special offers because I think I've done them prior to earning it on this site.

I typically don't try to do a lot of special offers, usually I will just use them as a filler to make sure that I'm able to reach my goal for the day when I'm running short. However, the two suggestions that I can give to you are to clear your cache and have a couple different spam email addresses that you can use.

I have recently joined the site but I quite in a fix how to proceed in the right way. So still now, I have participated only in the daily polls and have been able to collect only a few sawgbucks. I am very much interested to know the different ways of earning from the site and how to do it. I hope the different responses to this discussion will help me a lot.

Well, some advice you could take that I've been taking is that you get about 3 cents daily using the Daily Poll & NOSO, but of course that won't net much payment in a long run. The most bang for the buck earns that I have been getting are the Trusted Surveys, the iOS / Android App, and SBTV. When done efficiently, you may very well be earning five bucks a day. (This is saying that a swagbuck converts to a penny; with the price changes a couple months ago, the conversion seems to be valid.)

My average is about 10-15 SB/day. With research, games, daily polls, noso. I don't do the surveys as I have no patience for them and the tasks don't pay. Curious to know how you come up with 100/day? TV gives you only 10SB/5movies and takes the whole day!!

I can honestly say that SBTV as well as its twin, the Mobile apps are both annoying. Their rates to watch videos is very low compared to most earning, but it's better done when you're also doing something else. SBTV only gives 3 SB per 10 videos, while its twin gives 2 SB / 5 Videos. Try searching from Swagbucks. It won't grant you the closest results you want to get, though it will give you a chance to get more swagbucks, ranging from 6~50+ (Or so I've heard.)

I take part in daily polls. Bur NOSO feature is still now unavailable to Indians. At present, I use only Swagbucks for any search and yesterday I was gifted with 8 bucks. As I am new, like any other Indian, I am not very much comfortable with the site but I am optimistic and must use it in the right way for earning more and more from it.

Hi friend, i just do the daily polls and visit the NOSO and do the frequent searches to boost up my points in this site, i am not interested in playing games or attending surveys, once i attend a survey which comes to my inbox with 3 points, but the 3 points don't added in my account, i contacted the support but there is no use, after that i gave up attending surveys, i will attend the monthly collector bills and try my maximum to collect all the bills. These are my ways in swag bucks to increase my points

This is a very best website for earning. Unfortunately it is only for US residents. Watch the updates every hour.

I love Swagbucks but there are days when I can not get more than 35 swagbucks, if that. Other days, I get over 100 and one day i got over 200. That was my best swagbucks day. Of course search wins and codes are very helpful but I do my best with Trusted Surveys. Unfortunately I do not always have any surveys under Trusted Surveys or I do not qualify to those offered me. I once had one active referral and I received a lot of swagbucks when she cashed out. if you can get and keep referrals, that is a great way to earn swagbucks. I don't have a smartphone so I sometimes watch a lot of Swagbucks TV on my computer when I have the time. I have seen many good and interesting ones. I agree with what you said about special offers. I try not to go to them unless necessary. That is true of all my sites, not just Swagbucks. I have wasted a lot of time on special offers without getting credit. There are days when I just have to live with not earning very many swagbucks. For those days, I a glad that I am on other sites and have a p.t. job.

I can't use the tool bar because of the type of OS I have on my computer. Not having the tool bar is no big deal to me. I do the daily polls, the NOSO, the daily search, and the tv. How many SB I earn in a day can vary depending on what else I have to do. For me SB is a good way to save up on gift cards and every few months I get some thing for myself.

Hello I am quite new on this site, so don't know much about it. Just joined them two days ago. So far came to know about that we can earn swag bucks using search, games, survery, polls, videos, tasks ans other activities. I guess easiest one is using search. But surely we can't do those search rapidly,otherwise it may count as spamming. I guess they also serve crowdflower tasks. So it can be one way to earn swag bucks fast. I mean I used to do same tasks in clixsense and neobux, and with help of them I can surely earn quick.

I do the Swagbucks tv regularly and the daily poll. I rarely miss a day in any month. Just something I do when I first get online in the morning. I also do searches when I genuinely need to search. I haven't found any quick way to earn on Swagbucks. What I do is wait until I accumulate enough bucks to cash out which may be several months. Am not willing to spend my entire computer time on the site since I also do other sites where I can earn.
