Steps

  1. 1
    As we can see, it tells us how many swag bucks we have at the top.
    It doesn't show dollars or cents, it shows us points (called swag bucks). Once we've accumulated enough swag bucks, we can convert them into PayPal money, Amazon gift cards, or a bunch of other gift cards. We will show how to redeem them in a different part. We're going to demonstrate how to make money by doing surveys. We can do surveys and daily polls.

  2. 2
    If we look at the top of the site, we'll see a tab that says "Answer", and we can click on "Surveys", "Daily Polls" and "Tasks".
    We'll click on "Daily Polls". There are a variety of different polls every day, which is the easiest way to make extra money.

    Today's poll was about the Greek people voting "no" by a large margin against Europe's latest bailout offer.
    Swagbucks.com does do a lot of current affair type polls. We can see that 27% of people said "Yes", 30% of people said "No", and 42% said "Other/Undecided". Every day will be something different. We can vote by clicking on our choice and clicking on the answer button, which will give us 1 swag buck every day. It's not a lot, but it's just a little bonus.

    Once we finish that, we can go to the surveys by hovering over "Answer" and clicking on "Surveys".
    We can also select it on the left-hand side.

  5. 5
    We can see here that there are different surveys that we can take by clicking on "Start Survey".
    It tells us the estimated time to complete, the swag buck amount that we'll get for completing the survey, and the survey number.

  6. 6
    We can go through the steps of the survey to complete it.
    There's usually a couple of preliminary questions, and if we qualify and take the survey, we'll be awarded the amount of swag bucks that it said on the previous screen. It's usually there immediately after completing the survey, but if we don't see it right away we can come back after 5-10 minutes and it should be there. This is one way of getting paid for our opinion. The daily polls are a quick way of doing it, and then we have the gold surveys, partner surveys, peanut labs surveys, and tasks.

  9. 9
    If we click on a tab, we'll see surveys there as well.
    The surveys can be anywhere from 2-3 minutes to half an hour or more. There are an appropriate amount of swag bucks offered for each one. When we sign up for the account, we'll be able to answer a bunch of questions that will make us eligible for more surveys. Every time that we see questions coming up about our profile (which we will see periodically), we'll be able to answer them to qualify for more surveys. This will increase our chance of getting higher paid surveys as well.

    On the right-hand side on the survey page, we can see "Your Survey Profile".
    We currently have 5 questions completed. We'll also earn swag bucks for every profile question answered as well. They reward us for answering them. Right now it says, "Which of the following pets are present in your household?" We'll select "None of the above" and click "Answer". Swagbucks will then match more surveys, taking that answer into consideration.

    The next question is "What is your relationship status?" We'll select "Married" and click "Answer".
    We can just keep answering these questions.

    It asks, "In which province or territory of Canada do you live?" because we live in Canada.
    Swagbucks is available in many parts of the world, not just Canada. Once we have the profile started with Swagbucks, we will answer questions regarding our country of residence and those types of things. As we answer these, we can see the survey profile number is going higher.

    The next question is "Of these hotel chains, which one(s) have you stayed at during the last 12 months?" We can select our answer and click "Answer".

  15. 15
    At the top, we can see we've earned 2 swag bucks for answering some questions.
    The next time we log in, we'll also notice that the survey options have increased. There's also a daily survey that earns us 60 swag bucks. We can choose to have these surveys emailed, but it does fill up the email inbox quickly. Most redemptions start at around 500 swag bucks, which equals $5. It may not seem like a lot, but it actually is. Most surveys are around 60-100 swag bucks, which can add up very quickly. We can let them accumulate and cash out with a bunch, or cash out as we go. It depends on our preferences. The gift cards will be sent to us via email, which will be explained in a later video.

Steps

  1. 1
    Go to "www.swagbucks.com".
    We will see different offers available right on this page. This is going to be kind of geared to where we live. We are in Canada, so the majority of these are Canadian offers. Users in the United States or other parts of the world will see appropriate offers.

  3. 3
    Click "Special Offers".
    When this section comes up, we'll see tabs with different names. Each of those is a partner that deals with Swagbucks.com. We are awarded Swag Bucks for completing special offers. Let's consider an example.

  4. 4
    Scroll down.
    Let's say we are someone who likes to gamble online. There is an offer from "William Hill Casino". If we open it up and establish an account with William Hill Casino, we will be awarded 2,720 Swag Bucks. That's one award, shown in the blue box next to the offer. We can choose from many. We have been looking at paid offers.

  5. 5
    Scroll up and click "Free".
    It is in a row of buttons near the top of the section labeled "OFFERS". This loads a list of free offers, where it's not about joining and paying money.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Let's look at the free offers.
    For us, we see "SHOP.CA" because that's a Canadian site. If we join it for free, we get 26 Swag Bucks. If we join "Tangerine", we get 170.

  7. 7
    Click "TrialPay".
    It's the first partner tab near the top of the page. It's usually to complete trial offers. These may be offers to evaluate certain products, websites, services, and that sort of thing. We are rewarded for completing these as well.

  8. 8
    Let's look at the Trial Pay offers.
    We could join "Opinion Outpost" or play "Island Experiment" and things like that. Each one will say how many Swag Bucks we're going to be awarded for completing the offer.
    How to Make Money and Get Free Stuff using Swagbucks.com part 3 of 11 Completing Offers.mp4-canvas164 14.jpg
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    At the top of the list, near the right, go to "Sort by".
    There's a little dropdown menu.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  10. 10
    Click the arrow on the dropdown menu and select a sort option.
    We can sort to see which are the highest paying or the lowest paying offers, or the most popular offers. One thing that we do suggest when getting involved in these offers is to make sure that we're not spending money that we wouldn't normally spend, or on something we're not normally interested in. If we're going into Trial Pay to try some of the trial offers, for example, we should try things we're interested in. If, at the end of the trial, we are not interested in continuing, we have to make sure that we do cancel the subscription so that we are not billed. It's very important to be mindful about what we're joining and getting involved with. However, a lot of these are great offers, especially the free ones. Some involve downloading and playing a game for five minutes and getting bonus Swag Bucks, or downloading an app on a phone and trying it out for a week or two. These are the sorts of things we do every day with our devices. Swagbucks is available on phones as well as computers.

    That is how you can earn Swag Bucks on the Swagbucks.com website by completing Special Offers.

  6. 6
    Wait for the page to load.
    This will take us to a page listing all of the videos available at this time in this category. In the "SWAGBUCKS TV" black bar at the top of this page, next to the "How it works" button, there's a "SB METER". As we watch videos, more dots will fill up with green. Right now, we're at 20%, because we've watched a couple. They're really not very long videos, usually just a minute or two minutes, though some of them are a little bit longer. Many of them are quite humorous or informative. As we keep clicking on them, the SB Meter will keep filling up. Once it's filled up, then we're going to be awarded our Swag Bucks for watching the videos. It's pretty simple. Another way that we can actually earn Swag Bucks by watching videos is to download the app on an Android or iPhone device. We can watch SWAGBUCKS TV on the phone as well, so that's another option that's available.
