Our honest Swagbucks review:
Survey sites are very popular at the moment as you can make a litte extra cash with very little effort. But is it really worth spending the time to fill in a survey and then find that your survey is rejected at the last minute?
This is why we only recommend a limited number of survey sites which have proven themselves to be trustworthy. If you were to ask us which are our favourite survey sites, we would most definitely say Swagbucks and PrizeRebel.
Who are Swagbucks?
Swagbucks are a survey, cashback and a get paid to site with a unique currency known as Swagbucks. Each Swagbuck is worth around 1 cent and can be exchanged for Paypal Cash, gift cards or donated to charity.
To earn Swagbucks you can either complete surveys, shop and earn or complete offers. There are also some other ways to earn including paid search, watching videos, playing games and competing a daily to do list. The games and search are fun but they do not pay well for the time they take.
The cashback offers on Swagbucks are usually quite generous compared to other cashback sites and you are given a date when the offer will be credited to your account. We have never had to wait longer than the expected credit date or chase up any non credited Swagbucks unlike on some other sites which make excuses as to why they can’t pay.
Daily Goals and Bonuses
Every day Swagbucks will set you a daily goal and a secondary goal. When you meet the daily goal you will receive your bonus instantly. You second goal bonuses are accumulated and are paid once a month, usually around the 5th of each month.
There are also lots of other ways to earn bonuses, including referrals and joining in their Swago game which is a form of bingo or taking part in the team challenges that they run from time to time.
How Easy Is It To Make Money on Swagbucks?
There are usually lots of surveys available so it is definitely possible to make £5-£8 a day if you are willing to spend a couple of hours on them. There are also some totally free offers which reward you for downloading apps or signing up for something.
Cashback on your shopping is one of the best things about Swagbucks as they offer a really good choice of merchants in the UK including household names such as Superdrug, Iceland and Just Eat.
If you download the Swagbucks browser add on, whenever you visit a website you will see instantly if there is an offer available. There is no chance of missing out on your cashback which is a nice touch
