Hi everyone, just wanted to say thanks for all the tips and info on this thread. I am just started out on swagbucks and its been a big help. I had no idea about the collectors bills and lots of other things until I saw it on here. Just checked and I just need Ireland to get them all.

Same here. I'm just short of a 'lifetime' earning of 40,000 SB since starting last Autumn. Sure there are days when you get DQ from everything, but on the flip side, there are plenty of days when my earnings have been over 300, sometimes 500. And unlike some pure survey sites, at least when surveys on SB have dried up, there is still the opportunity to earn a few dozen SB from searches, videos, games and soul destroying SBTV! If survey-only sites have no survey invitations on a particular day, there's absolutely no chance of earning anything from that site.

yeah my lifetime is just over 42,000 and i havnt been on since last year, all set to get a big paypal chunk before christmas trying to average on around 200 points a day, which will be helpful when we get monthly bonus's ect. My childrens birthdays are in January so the cash will really help out! Im already nearly saved up for Christmas this year

My lifetime is 38,992 and I've been a member for about a year. It will be less this year though as I'm not trying as hard since I lost my SP wall and the ability to do any tasks

mail verification takes about 10 to 14 days depending on weekends in that time. Only have to do it once tho.

87,200 since last august/september, not earning anywhere near what i used to though.

Can someone remember a chart that was posted on here about different sites and comparison of rewards? i'd be ever so grateful if you could tell me which thread i could find it.

Just spent 20 minutes on instaGC and got £1, no problems with offers crediting, what a breath of fresh air compared to swagbucks.

Thanks very much fragmented

I will look through it tonight, i remember a picture chart, maybe it's a bit out of date by now but it will give me some idea.

The swagbucks user interface is easy on the eye and easier to use and probably what keeps a lot of people there, but i'm ready to move on to other sites, especially ones that pay up when you do the task/survey/offer!

Incidentally did anyone ever get credited for the surveys from last weekend?

Here are the ones I've done so far. I've not yet gotten around to doing the other walls yet; the weather is far too nice at the moment to spend ALL day in front of a 'puter screen

TrialPay comparison

PeanutLabs comparison

TokenAds comparison

Matomy comparison

Crowdflower comparison


You'll see from the charts that Swagbucks is pretty much at the bottom of the heap in terms of how much it pays to its members for doing offers and tasks.
