Swagbucks TV

The Swabucks rewards program is an excellent way to earn extra cash and/or gift cards of your choice. Each week I write a segment about Swagbucks. This is where I show my readers a tip, promotion, tutorial video, or how to use a section of the website. This week’s Swagbucks tip is about Swagbucks TV.

What is Swagbucks and how does it work?

Swagbucks TV is a great way to earn points called SB while watching a variety of videos. To get to Swagbucks videos:

Click ‘Watch’ in the left sidebar from the Swagbucks’ home page:

watch Swagbucks #Swagbucks #SBTV


The next screen is the Watch home page:

watch Swagbucks #Swagbucks #SBTV

There are three parts on this page to take note of:

  1. Watch Home
    • nCrave: watch selected videos that change daily
    • Sponsored videos: watch various videos for SB
    • Take the tour: shows you around the Watch section
  2. Categories of videos: The video categories are also listed in the middle of the page. Click a category to see all the videos in that category.
  3. View all: Click the view all tab to see all the videos in that category.


The browse tool allows you to search for videos based on categories and subcategories. There are hundreds of videos, and browse makes it easier to narrow down what type of video you’d like to watch.

SB Meter

The meter is based on 100% with each bubble signifying a ten percent increment. After about twenty to thirty seconds of a video is watched, one bubble is filled and you get closer to filling the meter. Once the meter is filled, you earn three points called SB. In other words, every ten videos you watch, you earn three SB. You are allowed to earn up to 150 SB per day with Swagbucks TV.

Like browse, search for videos by typing in what video you are searching.

Categories of Videos

Below the featured videos, there are categories.

Categories of videos include:

  • Editor’s Pick
  • Entertainment
  • Music 
  • Fashion
  • Healthy
  • Food
  • News
  • Home & Garden
  • Pets & Travel
  • Technology
  • SB Original

SBTV video category

When viewing a video you will be taken to this screen:

SB video

Notice at the top of the page, it will still have the browse, meter, and search features. Below the video there will be two new sections:

  • related videos playlist
  • comment section

related videos playlist

If you watch the same video twice, you will only be credited for the first time watching. This notice will appear if you have the watched video more than once that day:

Once you have watched ten videos, the meter will be filled to 100%, fill out the captcha, and you are awarded 3 SB.

Note: If you do not enter the captcha, you will not be credited SB.

Sometimes there is a chance to complete a bonus activity for SB. It will look like this:

    Just make sure to put in the code soon after it pops up, or instead of receiving 3 Swagbucks, they will be taken away from your account. Or at least that’s what happens to me. x_x Or maybe it just takes back the ones it was going to give you, so you wasted time.

      Great point! I’ll add that in the post. You’re right. If you don’t put in the captcha, you won’t be credited the swag bucks. Thank you for reminding me!
