How I Earned a Quick $35 Yesterday

Long time readers will know I'm a big fan of Swagbucks. It's an easy way to cover my entertainment budget, save big on holiday shopping sprees and make money trying out new products i would otherwise be skeptical of. The downside of Swagbucks is that the site gives you so many different ways to earn that it can be complicated and hard to keep track of all it's earning features. 

Well, Swagbucks runs this promotion once a month called SWAGO. It's like BINGO, except each square takes you to a different part of their site where you can earn points, called SB, doing something easy online. You get paid for filling out your board - the more spaces you fill out, the bigger your bonus! This month, the bonus for filling out your whole board is 300 SB, which you can redeem for a $3 gift card right away. But, that's just the start of your earnings with SWAGO. Because the game takes you to every nook and cranny of their site, you end up earning a ton of points along the way and learning if Swagbucks is right for you. 

How much? Well it varies a bit, but I just completed every square this afternoon and ended up with 3,492 SB, just 9 SB shy of $35 worth of PayPal Cash or any Gift Card I could imagine. The full breakdown is below but the shorter version is I made $35 online this afternoon clicking around the web in my pajamas. 

Here's how I racked up the SB on SWAGO:

- Completed my Survey Profile: 4 SB
- Set my Swag Name: 4 SB
- Completed a Gold Survey on Desktop: 100 SB
- Signed up for a $3 trial of Dollar Shave Club on the Swagbucks App: 1,000 SB
- Signed up for a $10 trial of BirchBox (to gift to a friend): 1,500 SB
- Watched Jimmy Fallon Clips on my SwagButton: 3 SB
- Watched News Headlines on the Swagbucks TV App: 3 SB
- Disqualified from a Gold Survey on the Swagbucks App: 1 SB
- Referred my Mom and convinced her to try a $50 Groupon, earning her 350 SB. Because of the Three For All referral program, she earned 650 SB total, and I get 335 SB for Referring her: 335 SB
- Purchased a $25 Dominos Pizza Gift Card on MyGiftCardsPlus for Friday's pizza night: 135 SB
- Searched "Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe" on Swagbucks Search and earned SB: 9 SB
- Watched a few cooking show clips on Swagbucks Watch on my desktop: 4 SB
- Completed a Gold Survey on my desktop: 75 SB
- Redeemed a free Swag Code on the SwagButton: 4 SB
- Read a short entertainment news article on nCrave: 2 SB
- Redeemed a free Swag Code on my Swagbucks App: 3 SB
- Completed the Additional Survey Profiler: 5 SB
- Attempted Survey that was at Max Capacity: 1 SB
Subtotal: 3,192 SB
- Redeemed my SB for a $25 PayPal Gift Card to complete my last SWAGO square...

Getting me a 300 SB Bonus for Completing SWAGO! Total Earned 3,492 SB

Tonight I am going to watch a few more funny animal videos to get me over the line so I can redeem another $15 in Gift Cards to add to my splurge fund!  Join the fun at Swagbucks now!

Double Your Cravings with nCrave

I spend a lot of time running around so I find it hard to keep up with pop culture. By using nCrave through Swagbucks, I can explore movie reviews, celebrity gossip and tech news without feeling guilty. Why? Because I get free gift cards while doing it!

Swagbucks makes it fun and easy to earn points online by shopping, watching videos and searching the web. This week, Swagbucks is giving you double the points, called SB, to play around with new websites through nCrave. 100 SB always equals $1 or more in PayPal Cash or Gift Cards from so many retailers, so this can be a real money maker.

From June 22nd to 26th, Swagbucks’ Double Your Cravings event will give you an extra 50 SB whenever you earn 50 SB through nCrave. By the end of the week, you’ve got $5 in gift cards for a few minutes of checking out entertainment sites. It really is that easy.

Next time I get coffee with my friends, I’ll be the one in the loop!

New to Swagbucks? By signing up for a free Swagbucks account through this link, you can get yourself rolling with a bonus $3 gift card as soon as you earn your first 300 SB. Start shopping, searching and exploring to get free gift cards today!
