Is it usually that sporatic?

Does it really go on how much time you surf the net? Or do you only get an average amount no matter how much time you put into it?

I guess I'm asking what's your daily average? Or weekly or monthly?

I am really liking it! Just wish they had more gift certificates available.

The other day I got a 40 SwagBucks and then 2 - 6 SwagBucks. Other days just a couple of small ones like 5-8 bucks once or twice. I get SwagBucks every day though I think

I think the most I've had is 50 at once.. and I average about 16-20 per day. It depends how much time I spend online, I suppose. I'm trying to save up some significant Amazon gift cards so this helps.

The most I've gotten in one day was 170+. Usually though I tend to average around 30-40. I don't seem to qualify for surveys much.

Some things I do:
- Downloaded the toolbar, go through the NOSO, check the survey and do the daily poll (1 pt each per day)
- Search 3-4 times in a day. If it doesn't seem like you are getting anything, try taking a look at the pictures. If you have the toolbar it makes it easier to use SB for your regular searching.
- Go through the special offers for videos to watch. They may only be 2-3 points each but they can add up. There can also be more than one of the same video, so watch even if you've already just watched it. I usually keep going until they tell me "there are no more videos"
- Follow on Twitter/Like on FB, as they have Swag codes posted there occassionally. (Use the Widget to find out if there is one available to save time).
- SB TV (especially if I'm getting close to a reward!)

I have been doing this thing lately where I click on Swagbucks TV, turn the volume down, and then let it run while I go about my business.


I've been doing that too

Well this morning marks my third day doing it, and so far I have 309 swagbucks. I've been letting the Swagbucks TV run in the background on mute too. I have it open in another window right now!

I've also been doing the daily poll, some of the "special offers" that involve just watching a video, and using it to search.

I've only been getting bucks from searching like once or twice per day. Is there some sort of trick to that? I seem to get them the most when I search for retailers' names.

I probably average about 20/day. Several of my friiends are signed up under me and they search a lot so that helps. I typically only do the poll and 2-3 searches/day. I haven't tried the TV thing but I'm definitely going to do that now! Thanks for the info.

I probably get 20-25 per day. Currently, it takes me approx. 3 weeks to earn enough for a $5 Amazon gift card. I watched the swagbucks tv this morning & only got 5 SB's. I wonder why I didn't get anywhere close to 60. Do you have to leave it on all day? I would love to be able to get SB's quicker. I sent a request to my sister to sign up, but she still hasn't gotten the email, & it's been almost a week now. I told her to check her junk mail folder, but I haven't heard back from her about that.

Has anyone gotten anything bigger than the $5 Amazon card? I really want the $50 Southwest gift card because I fly a LOT and if I can get a couple of those it would make a big dent in the cost of a vacation I'm planning. I need about 5,000 more points though! I think at this rate it will take me about 5 weeks to get it.

I'm so glad you said this- I was aiming for the $5 amazon cards but would love to save up for the SW GC- it is my 10th wedding anniv in 2011 and would love to fly somewhere

Yes, you can earn some from referrals if they sign up under your link. You can earn up to their first 100 points. That is why you always see frugal blogger promoting Swagbucks like crazy - they are making points from all the new referrals.

I am off to check out this newer TV thing - didn't know about that!

it's $5 and takes 450 points which is the cheapest SB way to earn amazon cash. And the TV is just videos and commercials. I have it on autorun and the videos cycle through. Everytime the video bar gets to 100% you earn 5 SB....but I've found that the window has to be active. Meaning that I can't be browsing in another tab. HTH

With a referral they match the first 1000 points to your account...not 100.

Strange, it works for me when I have another tab open and am browsing in it. I can even have it in a whole separate window.

When I first started I earned a whole bunch of points per session doing high point surveys. Completing your survey profiles racks up a good many, too. Now I don't seem to get a chance at surveys often.

I earn mostly though searching now. And I always do the daily poll cause it's fast and easy.

I will have to try to try the swagbucks TV thing, too.

I hope you can get one! They are like 5,700 points or something. Ideally I'd get a couple because my bf and I want to fly to the west coast and will probably spend $300-$400 round trip. I've also been doing ChaCha guiding to earn cash and am planning to earmark that as vacation money (PM me if anyone wants more info about that).

It seems like the $5 Amazon cards are the best "bang for your buck." It basically works out to $1 for every 90 Swagbucks. Most of the other gift cards (including the $25 Amazon GC) average out to more than 100 Swagbucks per $1 value of the GC.

LOL. I am using Google Chrome mostly, but I did have it going in Mozilla for part of the day yesterday.

Does the browser you use have any impact on how many points you get from searching? Maybe that's why I've been getting them so rarely.

Swagbucks are received by using them to search through....like when you google something instead I'm now using the swagbucks bar to search. You can earn random SB amounts. SB can then Be converted to prizes such as actual items or into gift cards. If you refer friends to use SB to search and they do use it, the SB site will give you the same amount of points your referral earns up to a maximum of 1000 points they have earned. Does that help?


best,

In regards to the swagbucks Amazon card, I thought I read somewhere that you could only cash in for $10 worth of Amazon gift cards a month. Is that correct or am I a little crazy?

You can earn 5 of the same type of gift card per month so that would be $25 a month if you buy the $5 amazon gift cards. I earned about $300 since last December but do not currently have any active referrals so definitely email me if you want a referral. mindi1111@gmail.com, if pea mail is still acting up.

I'm not sure my daily average, but I once got one of those 180 ones for searching some random thing. I got a 50 just now!

I downloaded the toolbar, and I use the search box every single time I'm online. I have a few websites that I check everyday, hotmail, facebook,etc. and I always go to them through the Swagbucks search box. You'd be surprised how many you rack up just by doing that.

I used to do some of the extra stuff, but haven't in along time.

Just using it as my search engine, I make enough for about $25 or so in Amazon gift cards every few months. Doing absolutely nothing out of my way, except using the search box instead of bookmarks, and that might take 2 extra seconds.

I usually get between 20 and 100 or so swagbucks a day. Between search wins, codes, the TV thing, and the daily 4, they all add up. For the past few months I have been able to get 5 x $5 amazon cards a month. It sure helped at Christmas!

I do some of the free special offers and they help boost your totals also.

ETA - whenever I am coming here to 2peas, or facebook or gmail etc. I put the name of the website in the swagbucks search box, that way I can 'win' points just for visiting my normal sites.

Peamail me if you want a referral

I thought the pea swaggers might be interested in an easy $10 Amazon card for writing 10 reviews at Viewpoints. They'll email you an Amazon code in three weeks. It was easy peasy, I just wrote toothpaste and deodorant reviews. Look for the Amazon card offer midway down the page. 10 for 10 Viewpoints offer Dec. 31st is the deadline.
