When I first started making money online, one of my first port of calls was Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a great place to earn money and gift cards online if you need variety and you want something that you can easily dip in and out of. Here is my guide to earning money online from Swagbucks in the UK.

What is Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is a website where you can earn points (called Swagbucks) for completing different tasks. These points can then be exchanged for a whole host of rewards, from gift cards to Paypal cash.

How to earn money on Swagbucks

Pretty much everything you do on the Swagbucks website is going to earn you money. I'm talking about:
  • Completing surveys
  • Watching videos
  • Playing games
  • Searching the internet
  • Taking up free trials
  • Taking up special offers
  • Shopping through Swagbucks
  • Downloading mobile apps
  • Referring your friends

And so much more.

Everywhere you turn there is a different way to make money with Swagbucks.

Let's explore some of these further with 12 ways to boost your income on Swagbucks.

1 – Complete Surveys

Completing online surveys is definitely one of the easiest ways to boost your Swagbucks earnings.
There are plenty of surveys to choose from, and you are able to see how long they take to complete, on average, and how much you will be rewarded for completing the survey.
This means that you can focus on some quick wins depending on how much time you have available.

2 – Complete special offers

Swagbucks has a whole host of special offers, free trials, apps to download and more – and they all earn you Swagbucks!

You can filter these offers to find what works best for you – you might want to aim for the highest paid offers, or the offers that won't cost you anything. Whatever you choose, there's something for everyone.

3 – Shopping

Getting paid to shop online is the dream, and with Swagbucks you can earn gift cards for completing your regular spending through the Swagbucks Shop.

Here you can earn Swagbucks when you shop through selected retailers, which can be used to boost your Swagbucks income.

4 – Searching the internet

Swagbucks has a search bar where you can be randomly awarded SBs for your internet searches. You can't just sit and search all day – they must be genuine searches for things that you really need to search the internet for. On average I randomly win SBs twice per day, with an average of 12 searches per day.

5 – Watch videos

There are tons of videos on Swagbucks to help you to earn.

Simply visit the Watch section of the site and you can choose topics that interest you, including news and politics, food and more.

You will earn Swagbucks for watching informative and entertaining videos.

6 – Daily Bonus

SwagBucks want to reward you for visiting the site every day, and earning Swagbucks. Every day you will have a daily goal, and if you reach it then you will receive extra Swagbucks on top! If you love having a daily target and you are motivated by earning extra Swagbucks then you will love the daily bonus on Swagbucks.

7 – Refer your friends and family

If you are telling your friends and family about your latest find then you deserve to be rewarded for it. Swagbucks have a very generous refer a friend scheme in place to reward you for this.
First of all, when someone signs up using your link and earns 300 Swagbucks then you will also get a 300SB bonus. What's more, you will also earn 10% of whatever your referral earns, at no cost to them. This is a great way to get a passive income coming in!

8 – Inbox

Your Swagbucks Inbox is where you will be sent great offers, so it is worth checking this every time you log on.

9 – Get paid to play games

Getting paid to play video games might sound like the dream, but with Swagbucks you can! Simply head to the game section of the website and choose from a selection of games. After playing, you will be awarded some Swagbucks for your time. You can do this every day.

10 – Swagcodes

Throughout the day, SwagBucks launches special codes for extra points. These are usually time sensitive and can be found on their Twitter, Blog and Facebook. There's also a Facebook page for Swag Bucks UK which has special UK only codes. By “liking” them on Facebook you often see people posting thanks for the code, which should help you locate the code.

11 – Complete the Daily Poll

Vote in the daily poll and earn 1SB per day. It takes just a few seconds to vote and you can easily boost your Swagbucks earnings by doing this.

12 – Complete micro tasks

If you have a keen eye for detail or you like to complete tasks in batches then you might enjoy earning money from the tasks on Swagbucks.
The tasks vary daily, and an be anything from categorising Twitter users or locating something on a certain website. You will be paid per task, or per batch, but there are tests along the way and the quality of your work will be checked.

How much money can you realistically make from Swagbucks?

Like most side hustles, the more time and effort you put into Swagbucks, the more money you can make. I think a realistic goal is to earn £15 a month. If you used Swagbucks throughout the year and ordered Amazon gift cards, that would give you a massive £180 in Amazon gift cards to spend on Christmas presents and other Christmas spending.

My verdict on Swagbucks

Swagbucks definitely isn't the most profitable side hustle I have done, and it won't make you rich. It will, however, reward you for completing fun tasks. With the variety of tasks on offer on Swagbucks, it is possible to earn without getting bored. If you are looking for a side hustle to dip into easily then Swagbucks is for you.
