    Hi everyone,

    Ive just started using a site called swagbucks where you can do things like surveys, polls, tasks to earn virtual swagbucks, which can then eventually be traded in for rewards such as vouchers for amazon, paypal money or electrical items.

    Anyone else used it? is it too good to be true or have you managed to make money from it?

    I used a bit in the past, they do pay out and seem to be a genuinely good company. Last time I looked they didn't send many rewards to the UK, though.

    Thank you when you redeem a voucher, how do you get it? does it come in the post?

    Hi your thread just caught my eye as I'm a fellow Swagbucker :yes: I've been doing it since October 2010 and I make £40 - £50 a month in Amazon vouchers, I always cash out at every £25 and the gift code is emailed within 1-2 weeks. Once you get used to it it just all becomes habit and the surveys etc get quicker.
    I love it, it pays for Christmas and more.

    They have more gift cards now for us in the UK. I always get Amazon but they have M&S and other places. They also do PayPal but the gift cards work out cheaper

    Ermm No Obligation Special Offers. I don't actually dothe special offers, but if you click on the NOSO link, then you get asked to enter a Captcha and then it gives you 2 Swagbucks each time for doing nothing (once a day)


    Oh another tip. I dont do most of the tasks in the task section, but if you are on swagbucks just after midnight, or in the early hours/early morning, then look on the tasks section. There may be a number of tasks called: "answer a few questions about a website" (or something like that). They only take a minute or so to complete, but each one is worth 4 Swagbucks and you can potentially earn 30SB a day or so more just by doing these.

    Thanks for the tips! I've been doing it for about a week and got about 400 points so far but the amount of surveys I get seems to have really decreased to none in the last 2/3 days

    I had made an account 2 or 3 years ago, but totally forgot about it, I found your thread and thought I'd see how much was in my account from all that time ago, there was 800 in there!

    Don't use it, but that is one appalling name for a website. Cringeworthy!

    I've given up on it now, if you have a lot of time on your hands it might be worth it but it takes AGES to even get up enough points for a £5 gift voucher!

    Well, maybe if you do at least 5 hours a day, it might be a lot quicker

    I opened an account 3 weeks ago and I've already earned £40 in Amazon vouchers, and I usually only spend half an hour a day on the site. The best ways to earn are the special offers and the task that asks you to write answers to questions. Good luck!
