Hello everyone, today I want to do a review on Swagbucks to share with you if it is possible to make money or if it is a scam. Swagbucks is another place where you can get paid to watch videos, take surveys, and get swagbucks (convertible to cash) for doing things you may do anyways. If you want to find out if it is legit, read until the end before you sign up.
Product Name: Swagbucks
Price: Free to join
How it works
Swagbucks works like most “get-paid-to-take-survey’s” type’s of websites where you take surveys and get paid a couple cents for every survey you take. You can also get paid for watching videos, doing web searches, shopping on amazon, signing up for services of other companies, playing games online, etc. Now, how you get paid is through a currency called swagbucks. For every 100 swagbucks you get, you can convert it to $1. So for 1000 swagbucks, you get $10. You can choose to get paid via PayPal or through gift cards.
- Free to join– like most paid survey websites, swagbucks is free to join and you only need to sign up by email or by social media accounts.
- Many offers to redeem “swagbucks” for things you may be doing anyway– Offers for swagbucks include signing up to drive with Uber, buy stuff on amazon, watching videos from TMZ, etc.
- may not qualify for a lot of surveys- You may not be eligible to take surveys and like most other survey sites that pay, you may get disqualified from a survey while you are in the middle of taking it.
- time consuming- like most paid surveys online, swagbucks is not a way to earn a full time living. Most minimum wage jobs pay better than taking surveys and watching videos as each series of videos may only pay you 3 swagbucks ($.03 equivalent) and watching an hours worth of videos may pay you only 60 swagbucks. Not worth the time if you make minimum wage at another job.
Who its for and its best uses
The best way to utilize swagbucks is by redeeming the swagbucks for things that you would probably do anyway such as your shopping on amazon. This is no different than a cash back reward for spending on your credit card. It is not worth your time try to make a full time income from swagbucks because the payout is low for activities like watching videos or taking surveys. The fact of the matter is, if you calculate all the time it takes to watch 60 1 minute videos and get paid only 3 swagbucks per video, you are only making 180 swagbucks which equals $1.80. You can make better money by working a minimum wage job.
