What is Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is the fun rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online. Earn points called SB when you shop at your favorite retailers, watch entertaining videos, search the web, answer surveys, and more!

First, I want to note that Swagbucks is FREE to join. You are NOT obligated to store credit card information in order to receive SB to be redeemed for gift cards or cash!

A common question with anything new is – how much time and effort do I have to put in it before I am rewarded? Easy with Swagbucks: Not long at all! I will not waste my time or energy on anything not worth the return.

Activities to get SB

There are lots of ways to earn Swagbucks, but here are the main ways to do it:

Each activity is worth different amounts of SB. Redeem SB for real rewards such as gift cards or cash via PayPal.

Rewards include

  • PayPal
  • Gift cards (like Starbucks and various other popular stores)
  • Charity donations

I trade in my SB every other week for a different gift card and use them to buy Christmas presents, birthday presents, and various other special occasion gifts! Read about how I shop at Amazon for FREE!

Update: Swagbucks is offering a new perk in the rewards store! Get your first $25 gift card for the store of your choice for only 2,200 swag bucks instead of the usual 2,500 swag bucks.
