How I Earned a Quick $35 Yesterday


Long time readers will know I'm a big fan of Swagbucks. It's an easy way to cover my entertainment budget, save big on holiday shopping sprees and make money trying out new products i would otherwise be skeptical of. The downside of Swagbucks is that the site gives you so many different ways to earn that it can be complicated and hard to keep track of all it's earning features.  

Well, Swagbucks runs this promotion once a month called SWAGO. It's like BINGO, except each square takes you to a different part of their site where you can earn points, called SB, doing something easy online. You get paid for filling out your board - the more spaces you fill out, the bigger your bonus! This month, the bonus for filling out your whole board is 300 SB, which you can redeem for a $3 gift card right away. But, that's just the start of your earnings with SWAGO. Because the game takes you to every nook and cranny of their site, you end up earning a ton of points along the way and learning if Swagbucks is right for you.  

How much? Well it varies a bit, but I just completed every square this afternoon and ended up with 3,492 SB, just 9 SB shy of $35 worth of PayPal Cash or any Gift Card I could imagine. The full breakdown is below but the shorter version is I made $35 online this afternoon clicking around the web in my pajamas.  

Here's how I racked up the SB on SWAGO: 

- Completed my Survey Profile: 4 SB 
- Set my Swag Name: 4 SB 
- Completed a Gold Survey on Desktop: 100 SB 
- Signed up for a $3 trial of Dollar Shave Club on the Swagbucks App: 1,000 SB

- Watched News Headlines on the Swagbucks TV App: 3 SB 
- Disqualified from a Gold Survey on the Swagbucks App: 1 SB 
- Referred my Mom and convinced her to try a $50 Groupon, earning her 350 SB. Because of the Three For All referral program, she earned 650 SB total, and I get 335 SB for Referring her: 335 SB 
- Purchased a $25 Dominos Pizza Gift Card on MyGiftCardsPlus for Friday's pizza night:135 SB

- Attempted Survey that was at Max Capacity: 1 SB 
Subtotal: 3,192 SB 
- Redeemed my SB for a $25 PayPal Gift Card to complete my last SWAGO square... 

Getting me a 300 SB Bonus for Completing SWAGO! Total Earned 3,492 SB 

Tonight I am going to watch a few more funny animal videos to get me over the line so I can redeem another $15 in Gift Cards to add to my splurge fund!
