Default Swagging in 2013 - Part 1

This discussion's now included in our Make Money Online Guide

Time for a new shiny thread for 2013

This challenge is simple, its about using the site called swagbucks to make yourself some money.

Swagbucks is one of several get paid to sites that i use but it one of my favourites, and i know for a fact that you can earn £25 a month by using the site because i do so nearly every month .

If you haven't used a get paid to site before, it just means that you can earn either points or cash from completing certain actions on the site. Swagbucks offers many ways, such as surveys, videos, tasks, polls, games, competitions.......lots of things really.

Although i can't post an exact guide to earning on the site (cos they wouldn't like that too much!) i hope to be able to give some hints and tips, and maybe even get some new ones myself!

So if you would like to take part in the challenge and increase your income by 300+ a year then feel free to join me

21-feb-2013 .. the new updated homepage guide

watch = swagbucks tv
play = games
answer > surveys = trusted surveys
codes = click on the wheel/safe icon located next to your name
discover > special offers = the special offers walls (PL, R1 etc)

For anyone new to SB here is a quick guide to daily earning:

Daily Poll - 1SB
NOSO - (just click right through to the video box and play, no need to sign up for anything!) 2SB
Searches - random amounts allocated for random searches - min 2 wins a day
SBTV - 3SB for every 10 videos (max 75 SB daily)
Toolbar - if you download this you will get 1sb a day
Surveys - easiest way to earn - check you have opted in for trusted surveys (there is a questionnaire to complete to get started)
Special Offers - watch out for more videos and surveys in there, we will also let you know which other offers track ok in the thread
Inbox - check out your inbox for extra earning opportunities.
Tasks - some can be complicated and some quite easy - usually the check the details of website ones are easy.
Games - play games for free - "SB awarded for every 2 completed and score submitted - max of 10 SB a day

Other Useful Info

The swagbucks day starts and ends at 8am our time in the UK

The facebook page is a good source of info, though tends to be relating to offers in US rather than here.

It is not against swagbucks terms to hold multiple accounts at the one address (however they seem to have an issue with more than 2). Multiple accounts are not to be held by one person or to be shared.

Terminology Guide:

SB - swagbucks (either the site or the points/currency)

NOSO - no obligation special offer - relates to the NOSO section of the site

Dub - The 2nd search win in a day
Trip - The 3rd search win in a day
Quad - The 4th search win in a day

DQ - disqualified - usually relating to surveys

Hope that helps do shout if you need any guidance - we all know lots of bits to do and are happy to share our knowledge!

Surveys - What you can and can't do


Daily Surveys - Found on homepage tab

You will see cards on the homepage which look like this



There has been a lot of talk, arguments, upset and confusion over these.

You are allowed to complete and get paid 70sb for ONE daily survey per day

You are allowed to attempt as many daily surveys as you like ... BUT once you complete one (and see the confirmation page), that is your one done for the day

If you do not receive your swagbucks straight away, screenshot the confirmation page ready to send in to support.

PLEASE NOTE - DOING MORE THAN ONE PER DAY AND GETTING 70SB EACH TIME FOR THEM ... MAY RESULT IN SWAGBUCKS TERMINATING YOUR ACCOUNT PERMANENTLY


Offer Wall Surveys (on Special Offers tab)


You can do as many surveys on this section as you like.

If the survey says "you may complete one survey a day" like shown on Trial Pay > Surveys > Ampario .. then that is all you can do

Peanut Labs (aka PL) = If you have not looked at this offer wall yet, there is a small box at the top about joining for surveys (I can't remember exact wording). Fill in the questions truthfully, I think there's only about 20-25 questions and this opens up the PL surveys for you.

Keep checking PL as you never know when surveys may appear.
Some PL surveys give you 1sb for getting disqualified, some don't.

Trusted Surveys

I can't remember the exact wording on the page when you very first look at it but I think you have to activate it.

Profile surveys are found on the right hand side.
Fill these in when they appear, worth 2sb each (or whatever it says)
There are a couple that don't finish properly. Do not worry about these, they go eventually and it has no impact on your surveys

Main surveys will appear as and when they come out.
Some people get lots, some people get surveys that you won't get.
Do not worry about it, keep checking and surveys will appear eventually
You get 1sb for getting disqualified for a maximum of 5sb a day (but only if you see the message telling you this!)

Quote:
Reward Payments
You can only claim 5 of any one reward in a month, but you can claim other rewards as well.
You can only claim 2 rewards per day

Paypal payments

Swagbucks/paypal do not charge for receiving paypal payments

£5 = 1049 sb
£10 = 1999 sb
£25 = 4949 sb
£50 = 9399 sb
£100 = 17,999 sb = best value

Swagbucks have removed the option for UK members to claim USD paypal payments
Some members may have USD payments in their wishlist so still able to claim them

Amazon Vouchers - Prices updated 12 September 2012

£5 amazon voucher = 849 sb ... 999 sb
£25 amazon voucher = 5250 sb ... 4,699 sb
£50 amazon voucher = 9600 sb ... 9,199 sb
£100 amazon = 20,000 sb ... 17,999 sb
£500 amazon = 97,000 sb ... 82,999 sb = best value

Also available are ... Please note - these are E-Gift cards so will be used for spending online
HMV
House of Fraser
Itunes
New Look

Quote:
Not receiving credits for offers completed ? Read This ... (copied from GiftHulk website but same things apply to Swagbucks and Superpoints)
Possible reasons for not receiving Hulk Coins for Offer Completion:
1- If you did not fulfill or meet all of the requirements necessary to be awarded.
2- Your browser security settings are configured to not accept third-party cookies, causing the report to fail.
3- If you have ad blocking software it will prevent advertisers from placing the cookies required to track the offers.

If all these reasons are irrelevant in your case, you can always get help from the Support Staff!


General rules:
Keep all proofs of completion (PIN numbers, confirmation texts, member registrations, payment receipts, invoices, etc.) for your records.

In some cases a confirmation link is sent to your email address. Be sure to check your spam folder for pending confirmations.

FAQ:


What steps do I need to take to complete an offer?
The instructions to complete an offer are written under each offer description. For all offers, you MUST provide accurate information and meet the advertiser’s requirements. Points will not be awarded if you submit incorrect information. Also, do not refresh the page anytime during the completion process. It could harm our ability to track your progress.

Can I complete an offer more than once?

No, each offer may only be completed once. You will not be awarded for any additional attempts.

If an error occurs during the completion process, do I still get my points?

Unfortunately, points will NOT be awarded if an error occurs and you were not able to complete the offer requirements. Please report problematic offers to our customer support team and we will investigate the matter.

How do I cancel or unsubscribe from an offer I completed?

Products and services subscribed or purchased through Offer Walls and EZ Coins offers are all from third-party advertisers. To cancel or unsubscribe from an offer, you will need to contact the advertisers directly.

After taking december 2012 off from swagging, I'm now back with a clear head and focused on where I want to be this year

Yes, I'll be hitting targets and chasing codes but there's more to life than swagbucks

hope today isn't as slow as past few days!

Normally I only aim for 30 SB a day as I just don't have the time to devote to it, but where I'm off work at the mo I'm trying to hit daily targets each day. Man am I sick of the sight of SBTV!!!!

Can the first post be updated?

1) Lowered all the prices
2) Streamlined the pricing for all denominations
3) Removed the limit of 5 of the same Reward per month
