    Alternatives to Swagbucks 13th Jul 18 at 10:46 AM
    Hello I am starting a new thread because I didn't want to clog up the Swagbucks topic. The new app limit for me is possbly the last draw for me and I'm getting sick of them making it harder to earn money from them so I am looking for alternatives. What do you guys think of these websites and are there any others worth looking at:


    Gifthulk
    TimeBucks
    Grabpoints
    instagc



    Thank you

    I've not tried any of those sites so cant comment on those, but I'm also now done with swagbucks. They have been slicing off earning opportunities for ages now but usually just a little bit at a time here and there, but this slashing of earnings on the apps is too much it's not worth the memory space on my phone for 4 sb a day. I'll get enough to use the sb I have on one last gift card then I'm out.

    I like Prolific. It tends to give studies in drips but they sometimes pay very well and are usually a bit different and interesting.

    Branded Surveys - used to be called Mintvine if you like doing offers as well as surveys, they also have a daily poll that pays some points, also pays DQ points on some surveys. It's a slower one than swagbucks but OK. Totally agree that SB has gone downhill recently.

    I can only comment on InstaGC but I like it more than Swagbucks. I probably earn twice as much on InstaGC as I do on Swagbucks.


    InstaGC also pays me to paypal instantly whereas SB takes around 4 days for payment to appear in my account.

    For surveys you cannot beat going direct to the survey sites as they are not paying a middleman who just passes on a very thin slice of the earnings.
    Swagbucks for example can pay 10% or less than the actual survey sites and none of the sites like them pay anything close to going direct but as it is where those type of sites make most of their money they are always keen to get you doing surveys.

    It's also more reliable as there is no extra layer involved.
