Are you trying for the daily Swagbucks goal?

United States

I normally do not actually try to reach the goal. In fact, most days unless I do some searches, I really only get the 1 SB per day for having the tool bar installed. But yesterday's goal was an easy 50 Swagbucks.. so I figured I'd try. It wasn't easy. Between the games, SBTV, and searching for every word that popped into my brain, I was 10 points shy of the goal. Finally I qualified for a survey and ended up with 170 SBs for the day, but I was able to reach payout and requested a $5 Amazon gift card.. my 2nd of the year. Today's goal was a little harder. 90 Swagbucks. I figured I'd give it a shot. I've basically spent the past 2 hours trying to qualify for more surveys, unsuccessfully, watching SBTV, playing games, and continuing to search for anything I could think of. Finally I decided to partake in an offer for 120 SBs and met the daily goal. Thanks to that I'm about half way to my next payout again. I have 225 points and need 450 to request a $5 Amazon card. Plus, at the end of this month I will receive bonus SBs for reaching the goals.. 5 SBs for yesterday and 9 for today. If I manage to hit the goal for 7 straight days I will get an additional 25 bonus SBs. How are you doing on reaching your Swagbucks goals?

I have yet to reach any goals for a daily swagbucks goal and I don't know if I will ever seriously pursue trying to reach one of their goals. A lot of the activities on there besides searching just rewards you with too little of points for me to really want to spend an extended amount of time on there. I have a lot of swagbucks saved up though, enough for a fifty dollar gift card plus some but I have been just saving them up for the time being. I've been starting to watch swag bucks tv but I think it is a pretty low reward to get 3 swag bucks for watching like five or more videos. I love the site but I don't think that I will ever really try that hard to reach a daily goal. Are you getting those five dollar amazon gift cards for reaching your daily swagbucks goal? Because if so that might be worth it for me to try and reach some goals. I guess I don't really know all that much about the site I've just been using it for searching for over a year now and have had a lot of great experiences with it.

No, I just cash out as soon as I reach 450 SBs.

Amazon gift cards at 450 SBs is your best bang for the buck. I have put in two fast earners besides search. It always used to take me ten videos to get 3 SB, and usually four games to get two. I usually did the games if anything. I am happy with at least one Amazon $5 gift card per month, sometimes more.

I live in India,and my chances of reaching my daily Swagbucks goal is difficult,not only to me but for all Indian members earnings are low as compared to US,UK and canadian members. I occasionally reach my goal when there is 50-60 target goal then i try all my best to reach my goal to get bonus SB.Even some SC are not available to us,and i earn dail a guarrentte of 30SB and sometimes i earn 400 SB and thats vague...,fortunately sometimes. I also win thrice daily from search and that's around 8,7,25 and so on SB. Reaching SB goal is really a huge challenge,which we find sometimes easy and difficult too,and so far i've only 2000SB,and i will wait for atleast 5000SB for cashout. Thanks for sharing this.

I don't try to reach it hardly at all. Most the times it is set too high. I'd have to spend all day trying to do it. But I should try a little more i guess because I could use some more amazon cards. I like to earn them and add them to my account and let them build up. My plan is to earn what I can and then to let it sit till close to christmas and use it for my christmas shopping.

That's what I've been doing. I didn't have much last year, but the year before I made almost $200 total.. some of that from other sites as well. This should be a good year also. I've earned $15 on Swagbucks just this week!! Reaching the goals everyday leads me to a cash out every couple days.. and today I did an offer that got me 400 points, so even though I cashed out yesterday, I was able to cash out again today. It doesn't take me long to reach the goals. I do a lot of small stuff and searching, but I also try to qualify for surveys or do the free offers. Like I said, today I signed up for a credit website (no credit card required) and got 400 points. Yesterday was more difficult as I didn't qualify for any surveys or free offers, but I got lucky and got points for coupons I used a few weeks ago plus a larger bonus for searching.

I never reached the goal. I sure wish I could. My goal for today was 70 and I have only made 13 points. I do not think I will reach it today since it is almost ten at night. I have been listen to SWAGTV on my Iphone to try to make more points.

I don't usually reach my goals on SB. I usually get one for the tool bar, daily survey and 2 for the noso. Sometimes I try for the surveys but not usually as I don't tend to qualify for them however I did once and qualified for a nice chunk in SB's. Though earning was simpler when one has a new referral who's actually using the program... that's helped me alot but no newbies so dry spell in that area.

I have only been active in swagbucks since mid January and have reached the daily goal almost every single day. I've already clained 25$ to my paypal and only 200 swagbucks away from another 25$. All I do is free offers surveys and swagbucks t.v. I am trying to not miss a goal at all this month to get the 300 bonus and so far have not missed a day.

I had forgotten all about Swagbucks. After reading this I did a daily poll for 2 points and watched two videos for 2 points each. I'll try to remember to go there each day. I've bought a few things from amazon with my points in the past. Thanks for hooking me up to them and also thanks for reminding me.

I love swagbucks but have been having problems meeting the daily goal since the beginning of the year. I think that I was able to do so once this week. Even when the goal has been low, I still have not been able to meet it. One way that I often have met the daily goal is by completing a Trusted Survey but since the beginning of the year, I have received very few Trusted Surveys or did not qualify. I never qualify for other surveys and I do not care for special offers. What offer did you take that gave you 120 bucks?

I signed up to receive an insurance quote.

I've only missed completing the daily goal for 12 days since they introduced it last June. Having the goal meter really helps me focus on increasing my earnings there but I don't let it limit my earnings. Most days I earn between 150 and 200 Swag Bucks. It doesn't take me a whole lot of time to do it now that I have my routine down... I only spend about an hour a day working on Swagbucks.

Wow! I usually stop as soon as I hit the daily goal. Today's is 110! That might be hard to hit!

Its been some time since my last SB log in, but .. I don't do surverys. Never quality for them. I get some bucks for visiting the survey page however. The offers never credit me. Yeah, I know, "Contact support", but its not one or two offers not crediting. It;s all of them. I'd be there all day, so I just leave it alone. Tool bar? No thanks. So in the end I do the poll, go through the NOSO path, do some searches, and have some videos playing while I'm doing something in another tab. Hmm. I don't have a swagbucks goal just yet.

I am a member of swagbuck for a littel time. sometimes it is easy to earn SB Through searching. Firstly when i open the account in swagbucks first of all i earned 60 sb by just searching the websites.But when i tried to win the swagbuck s through my swagbucks so i never win that. But i am not able to understand how can i remove the cash through swagbucks. i have little bittle confusion about it.

Swagbucks doesn't really pay in cash, but you can use your points to buy gift cards or enter into contests to win prizes.

Hi katsmeow. Well you seem like some professional. I rarely find time to do all that. I just became member of swagbucks few weeks back. And I used to earn some 2- to 30 swag bucks per day. But then the last couple of days I lost touch because of other offline commitments. I hope this post of yours motivates me to go back and start earning on swagbucks again. Have a nice day !!

To reach daily goals in swagbucks india,is a difficult task,because NOSO,Swagbucks TV,and some other easy earning options are not available for indians.For me i didn't get any daily surveys,every times i tried,it says 'sorry,no survey is available right now'. I usually get 27-30 swagbucks daily and with one not so active referral,sometimes my daily earning crossed 40 swagbucks,though i requested a payout of $10 last week.Happy mylotting.

I never go after the goals on there. I normally get on and do a few searches, and the daily poll. I recently redeemed a lot of my Swagbucks for a $25 Paypal reward. I'm basically starting over again, so I'm just pacing myself to get more Swagbucks. Congrats to you on reaching your goal though.
