Is Swagbucks Worth It

Every so often I hear someone sing the praises of Swagbucks. Is it worth the effort? I must have signed up at some time and went there out of curiosity. I seem to have earned 100 bucks.. Just not sure what for and when and if it is just another time waster?

I have tried and it seems that most of the surveys are not available for the region where I live. For me it was a waste of time.

I use it for a search engine. Surveys are a waste of time.

It doesn't actually take much time, or you could spend a couple of hours on it - it's up to you. If you do the Daily Poll and maybe let a few videos run and use the search, you could come away with 20 or so SB a day. The time invested is almost nothing. If you take another hour to try a few surveys, you could average 100 SB a day. I have redeemed my swagbucks for gift cards at Amazon and Walmart and it's great because I am buying things for no money at all. Last week, I had $30 in Walmart gift cards that I put towards The Boy's school clothes. Honestly, it pays more than any of these writing sites. I know that but still show up here more than there. I need to amend that, but probably won't.

@dashboardc33 I get disqualified for surveys all the time. Most disqualify you right away and then they pay you 1 swagbuck for trying. I had one survey bump me out after a very long process and I wrote to Swagbucks to tell them I thought they made me jump through too many hoops just to be disqualified. They credited me the full amount of swagbucks for the survey. They are really good that way.

It is reliable. I have put it more on the back burner for the sites that I use but I still visit daily or try to. I am letting mine build up and then I will cash it out when it is a larger amount.

Yes it is and I love it. I am doing it every day online and on three phones for it. You can get great gifts with those cards.

I find it worth what little time I spend there. I wouldn't say I put much effort into it, either... like @dashboardc33, I earn with the videos, which don't require any interaction. I set them up to run on my 2-in-1 while I'm doing other things on my desktop computer. All it takes is a few seconds here and there to close a tab when the playlist completes and open a new one. Every so often I'll get ambitious and go through the offer walls, which can dramatically boost my earnings from the site depending on what's available.

I have earned a lot of money in the form of egift cards and I use them at Wal-Mart each week to help with out food budget. To me it is really easy to earn swagbucks.

I use Swagbucks as well, but have not cashed out yet as I have not been putting in a lot of effort. In my opinion, it takes a while to get where you can cash out. Personally, I am trying for the 25 Paypal dollars for 2,500 points and am only about a quarter of the way there after a very long time trying.

Hi Friend, I am doing swagbucks since 2 months I have invested more than 200 swagbucks for sweeptakes but I have not won in any sweeptakes. Actually I am from India but now I am in USA for vacations so since 3 days I can do some surveys and earning some swagbucks daily. I do not know if I do swagbucks site from India can I earn watching videos in swagbucks site.

For the minimal amount of effort required, yes. If you set your goal to even one $5 amazon card a month that works down to 15 swagbucks a day... doable, and 5 dollars off is five dollars off, right? :)

I personally love it there - and it is worth it if you take the time to be there. I have gotten to the point where I multi-task several activities there at the same time WHILE I am writing on sites like this - so the most is made of my time. I do 50-75 minimally a month - so I say it's totally worth it.
