Swagbucks.com is a website/ online platform owned by Protege, LLc, and it runs a program called swagbucks which rewards you with gift cards and cash when you do your normal daily activities online. This ranging from earning points when you shop online, watch entertaining videos, search the web, take surveys, and find great deals/ offers to take.

Shopping: when you shop online through the swagbucks site, at your favorite retailers, you get awarded points also called “SB” and also get a certain percentage for cash back. If your favorite retailer isn’t among the websites features, you can always go and mouse over it then click on the heart shaped icon and it will be added. Amount of points you make and the amount of cash backs also varies depending on the retailer you are buying from.


Watch videos: for you to successfully watch video and earn points, you have to first download the swagbucks TV, where you have all the video offers present ranging from top stories, entertainment, cute animals, shot clips, viral videos, FIFA world cup and winter Olympics, all shot clips of about one to two minutes long. At least you get to earn about 10Sb watching videos a day. Before each video plays, you must watch an ad that lasts about 30seconds before the next video can play. Note that when you reach the number of Sb to be earned per day which is roughly 10Sb, if you don’t stop the video, they will continue to repeat but no extra Sb will be awarded.

Swagbucks also have a friend refferal scheme that allows you to invite friends by sharing your unique link and once they join and start earning, you get to earn 10% of their swagbucks for life. So if you feel this is for you, you can kindly sign up here using my refferal. Thanks.


  • It is an easy way to make money on the side
  • Loads of offer to choose from
  • Access to surveys and offers on the go, through the mobile app
  • It is absolutely free to join
  • You get cashback from your online shopping
  • Play games for free and get paid doing so
  • can be used on the mobile on the go.

Chance to choose your own favorite retailer to be added to the cashback site if it is not already there.



  • not source for full time income
  • So little to be made from spending such time taking surveys
  • Repetition of videos, same videos show up for a period
  • You can’t complete all surveys as demography and profile plays a key role. I.e if you have low quality demography then you can’t qualify for most surveys
  • Limited number of videos that can be played daily.
  • Web search does not cover some areas. I.e you cannot use this search engine in some locations.




Swagbucks does offer you ways to earn minimal amount of money and obtain gift cards and cashback, and its something I reckon should be okay for students and anyone who is just looking out for tips or way to occupy their time without minding how much comes out of it. If you are one of those looking to make full time income, then I will suggest you read my no #1 recommendation, that will truly teach you the best ways to make money online from the comfort of your home

Thank you for writing this review. I am also a stay at home mom and am always looking for a way to save some money. Like you said, this app isn’t going to earn you a full time income, but saving a few dollars here and there doing your normal daily activities doesn’t hurt. I am definitely going to give this app a try!
