I may have to download a third app (swagbucks)

I don't normally talk about swagbucks here because frankly not many people care. I know a few of us use swagbucks, some using it as a means to save for shopping. I try to earn the daily sb meter there so that I can get the bonus sb's at the end of the month. Actually this will be my first month attempting to do this. In the past? I hardly ever used the site. Now I use it daily as a "daily" earner. I just don't think I'll make the daily meter today, not unless I download another app. Once the two apps I already have are done running I will be about 30 sb's away from making it. I've tried to qualify for surveys but it's just not happening. I really can't be bothered to do more encrave. I have other sites I want to earn on and other things I want to do to entertain myself. So I guess I'll download another swagbucks app to my iphone and earn the rest that way. How do you earn your sb's? Do you use the site? What do you redeem?

I use Swagbucks on a daily basis. In the past, some days I would hit my daily target, and some days I wouldn't. There was no consistency. The one thing I have always been consistent about is hitting my own personal monthly target, which is to reach at least 2500 SB's. My goal is to transfer money to my PayPal every month as I hit the 2500 SB goal. I'm off to a great start this year already, having already redeemed 2500 SB's by mid-month, and I'm well on my way to earning another 2500 SB's by the end of the month! I earn most of my SB's through surveys, which are easy for me to do because I have a part-time night job where I sit at a desk for 3 hours every night doing absolutely nothing. So, while I'm sitting here, I just do surveys! My new goal this year, in addition to my monthly SB goal, is to hit the daily goal every day! I didn't realize how many additional SB's you can earn at the end of the month just from reaching your daily goal everyday!

I am nearly at another 2,500 myself. Yes it's crazy how many sb's you can earn from just reaching the daily goal. I hit and miss on survey's. Some days are better than others. I try to start at 3 am (I also work third shift) on the nights I have off. I worked Sunday night though, so ended up starting at about 8 am after breakfast with family. I actually use two other sites like swagbucks but those two sites are just for gift cards. Swagbucks is for the paypal cash and so is mylot. You just use the site itself no apps or anything?

@ScribbledAdNauseum What else do you do like SB? I start with gold surveys, then partner surveys, then Peanut Lab surveys. If you attempt and fail more than half the time you get a point anyway.

I use SB. I try to qualify for at least one survey a day. I would like more. I do not have any mobile apps. I will on occasion do an offer. I go to the "watch' category to the left, and run videos all the time I am online. I redeem for Amazon gift cards. Usually the first $25 I get for 2200 SB. I make fifty or more dollars per month, but myLot is more fun.

Are you trying to make the daily goal there? I've never consistently tried for it. I haven't missed it once this month and intend not to for the rest of it. I want to see how much I will get by the end of it.

My lady uses that. She does quite well because she prefers to do the surveys on there.

I sort of do a hit and miss on the survey's. I do try to qualify and atleast I earn a swagbuck if I don't qualify. I almost qualified for one today, was halfway through but had to answer "no" to something I knew would take me out. I'm glad your lady friend does well.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I usually disqualify early. But today I was kicked out after quite a long session. I see why that annoys people.

@paigea I was nearly halfway through a short survey when I was dq'd today. I had to answer "no" to a question about whether I Was willing to sign up for a site to pay bills.

I love SB! I don't do it at all on my phone - it's all done from my PC. I can usually make it to the 2nd goal, but this month has been a "dry" month on SB (everyone says that on FB). So I've been concentrating on getting that first daily goal - very doable but it just takes longer. I aim for at least one survey a day - it doesn't always happen, but when I can qualify I'm doing the happy dance. The rest is videos - though nCraves seems to no longer be available for me. I do go to their FB page quite often as people are nice to post the offers that are crediting - that can sometimes help a lot!! I used to only get Amazon cards, but I get Amazon from other sites, so I've been using SB to put on my PP card - I love it!

Yes SB does seem to have less to offer so far this year. I am hoping they'll get back on track for February. I found a website (it's actually a subreddit) that has up to date offers that are credting for SB. I've been looking on that atleast once a day. I use both the mobile and the pc because, like you, I use other sites as well. SB is my PP money, the others are my amazon GC.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Everyone says that January is hisorically bad at all those sites - everyone is slow at this time of year I guess. Oh, I'll have to look for that website (any helpful tips is awesome!). Hope you make your goals for this month - and we'll all hope for many more offers for next month!

@much2say If you scroll down I gave someone a link that will lead to the subreddit. The guy's blog lists the site he uses to check for offers.

I earn most of my SBs from watching videos or Encrave. I'll have them playing - muted - while doing other things on my other computer. Maybe once a week or so I'll manage a survey.

I was doing a survey once a day atleast three times a week. I am sort of in the hit and miss gap of surveys. I tend to get the entertainment or food related ones the most.

I can't watch the videos as I don't have a big enough internet package. I haven't tried downloading any apps. I only have internet on my phone on WiFi, I will have to see if I can get an app to download. Generally if I can't qualify for a survey I can't make my daily goal. So, I just don't worry about it.

I want to make my daily goal this month as it's sort of an experiment for me. I don't pay for the internet here but when I had my own separate interent I did run into a lot of problems with not being able to do much on it.

The past number of days no matter what survey I try to do I get disqualified. Sometimes I answer plenty of questions in a survey and then get the message I am disqualified. Just the other day I finished the whole survey and a message popped up telling me I did not qualify and I did not earn any SB. Really? What the heck was I doing for x amount of minutes answering all these survey questions about a specific topic and sticking it out until the very end?
