You are probably wondering why I have a picture of bread and butter. This post is going to go into my new category Bread N’ Butter. With every business you have your products that make you a big chunk of money, but they tend to take longer to obtain. You also have your products that don’t make much per sale, or in the case of affiliate marketing per sign up. However, they are what keep you a float and get cash flow while waiting on the bigger and brighter things. In sales, we used to call that Bread and Butter money. So, today I am going to talk about Swagbucks and how it was my bread and butter money for a while.
I have a feeling many of you probably have already heard about Swagbucks, but if you haven’t then this post is for you. I’ve been a member of Swagbucks for years, but only the last year did I get serious about working it. Why? Well, I needed extra money for food and stuff during a tight money period. So, I did what I knew I could do to make extra cash or in my case Visa Reward Cards, Walmart Cards, and Omaha Steaks gift cards.
I had time, but I didn’t have much money, so personally, I went the way of the free stuff to do most of the time, or things that I would ordinarily do anyway, that I could get paid to do through Swagbucks
How To Make Money With Swagbucks?
You can really pick your forte on Swagbucks and decide which ways work best for you. There’s really unlimited ways to earn and you can sit there and make money all day.
First thing you need to know is 100 Swagbucks = $1.00. You can see in my picture above. I have made over 100,000 Swagbucks in my lifetime with the majority of it being made since June 2018. In real money amounts that is $1,000.00 of extra money I made to purchase food and necessities.
I would imagine if I was already a member of Wealthy Affiliate back then, I would have made way more than that though. Not only from only making an income on Wealthy Affiliate but also by referring members to Swagbucks using Wealthy Affiliate. You can earn a reoccurring 10% Swagbucks on whatever your sign up (referral) makes with only a few exceptions.
Here’s a list of a few of the ways you can make some extra cash with Swagbucks.
- Invite Your Friends – 300 SB Plus 10% Lifetime Earnings. Earn 300 SB when your referral signs up and earns 300 SB in their first month. Plus, you will also earn 10% of their SB earnings for the life of their account. (See their FAQ for details)
- Earn 100 SB’s when you refer someone to install the Swagbuck toolbar extension for Chrome.
- Shopping – by using the Swagbucks extension or clicking on an ad on their website in the Shop category, you can receive cash back from places you already shop at like Walmart.com.
- Printing Coupons
- Watching Videos – both on the website and using apps
- Doing Surveys – There are usually tons of surveys available.
- Signing up for offers- Through Swagbucks or through other companies on the Swagbucks site in the category called Discover. You can even get Swagbucks for trying out games on your Android or IPhone
There are even Daily Bonuses, Streak Bonuses, and occasionally games like Swago and Team Challenges like the one going on right now
Of course, there are many more ways to earn Swagbucks so I encourage you to go the site, sign up for a free account and check it out for yourself.
Is Swagbucks Legitimate?
I have heard people calling Swagbucks a scam. If it was a scam, I wouldn’t tell you to sign up for it, and I wouldn’t have made over a $1,000 dollars with Swagbucks. The reason people call it a scam, is they are usually not reading the disclaimers on an offer or they abuse the system, and they get removed.
There have been times I did not get credited for certain offers. If that happens to you just make sure you have screenshots, and the offer information, and send in a help ticket to them. I have never been refused my credits if I did the program right (which I always have, so I have never been refused). Of course, I can’t guarantee something goofy in the universe won’t happen to you. There’s never a guarantee for that. I can only tell you my personal experience with Swagbucks has always been a pleasant one.
Some offers take 30 days or longer to receive your Swagbucks, so just make sure you read every offer.
How Does Swagbucks Pay You?
Swagbucks pays you in gift cards to many stores or retailers. They also pay you in Visa Rewards Cards that you can use as a credit card with online shopping, you can also request getting it mailed to you to be used in a physical store. They also will pay you through PayPal. The choice is yours on how you would like to receive your rewards.
How to Earn Swagbucks Fast?
I would like to tell you a fast way to earn, but I can’t. It sometimes can take a while to get enough to cash out for. Though one of the fastest ways if you like to go to restaurants or shop is to purchase Gift Certificates off of their website. I really earned a lot of Swagbucks that way and they were instant as soon as the card went through. I used my rewards to purchase the Visa Rewards card to turn around to purchase more Gift Cards. That was my system, and it got me the food I needed.
When you earn a gift certificate through Swagbucks though, they tell you it can take up to 10 business days to receive it in your email. I have never had it take long for me it was more like 3-5 days and I usually ordered the Visa Rewards and the Walmart Cards.
If you need some extra cash to makes ends meet while you are building your business or just stretched with every day living. Swagbucks is an excellent place to make some bread and butter. You won’t get rich. You won’t make enough to quit your job, but it does help stretch the budget and make some extra dough.
