Swagbucks is one of my favorite websites when it comes to earning money online. I wanted to show you how to get more Swagbucks when signing up so your off to a good start from the get go.
If you want to learn more about Swagbucks and how you can make money through them, be sure to read my in-depth review of Swagbucks here:
Now let me show you how to get more Swagbuck points when signing up!
First thing first, if haven’t already signed up for Swagbucks, you can sign up here:
First Tip: Accelerator Program
Once you create your account and confirm your e-mail address you’ll be shown a screen that looks like this:
I recommend you do not fill these out yet.
Why not? Well, although it looks like a good idea to earn some fast Swagbucks you can actually double the amount you earn by following this simple step.
Sign up for the Swagbucks Accelerator Program before you start earning any points. You can find the link here:
I know what you are thinking. Woah buddy, I don’t want to spend any money. I hear you, but if you really want to make the most of your time on Swagbucks, you need to do this. It can double your Swagbuck earnings every month by matching your points to either 700 or 1,500 SBs.
If you’re dedicated, I recommend signing up for the highest amount offered. You can always cancel it if you don’t think you are getting your money’s worth. However, as long as you are reaching your monthly “match up” the cost pays for itself and more.
Since every Swagbuck point is worth about $.01, the Accelerator Plus plan will earn you an extra $5 per month.
If you can earn 1,500 Swagbucks monthly (and can easily earn that and more) then you just earned about $15 worth of rewards. By signing up for the Accelerator Plus program, you will double those points to 3,000 Swagbucks, about $30 worth of rewards.
The Accelerator Plus program costs $9.99 per month. That means;
- Without Accelerator: 1,500 SB = $15
- With Accelerator : (1,500 x 2) = 3,000 SB =$30 – $10( rounded cost of Accelerator) = $20
If you do this every month for a year, you can earn an extra $60 yearly. The only reason you wouldn’t do this is if you like leaving money on the table.
Second Tip: Daily Goal
Now that you’ve signed up for the awesome Accelerator Program, you’re going to be doubling your Swagbuck earnings up to 1,500 SBs.
You’re going to now want to enable the Daily Goal feature. It’s located on the left dashboard menu.
You’ll start off with a goal of attaining 30 Swagbucks and your gift will be an additional 3 SB points. Once you hit the goal, you will earn the bonus and be given another new goal to hit with an even bigger bonus to follow.
What’s neat is that you can also earn bonuses for hitting Winning Streaks. All you need to do is keep hitting your first goal everyday. If you are able to hit the bonus everyday for a month, you can earn at least 700 Swagbucks ( Bonuses from the Daily Goal and Winning Streak). That’s an extra $7 a month for being consistent and using Swagbucks.
Consistency is the name of the game.
And with your Accelerator in place, you’ll double those earnings. $13 in your pocket.
Third Tip: Swagbucks Watch & TV
I’ve found that the best way to earn money passively through Swagbucks is by watching Swagbucks TV. The Watch option is found on the top menu of Swagbucks.
To earn money passively, just open up another tab in your browser and let the Swagbuck videos run in the background. You can mute your speakers so the audio doesn’t bug you and you are on your way.
You will have to watch a few videos before you earn Swagbucks, but you don’t really have to do much to keep them going. Just check back ever so often to ensure the videos are running and that you’re earning your points.
My favorite way to earn the Swagbucks TV points is through their mobile app. You can get it for iOS or Android. It works similar to the way it works on desktop; with one caveat. And this is the best part. On the mobile app, videos will automatically continue to play once they finish. Just periodically check your phone or tablet to ensure it’s playing and there are no errors.
Here are the links for the Swagbucks TV mobile app.
Keep in mind, Swagbucks also has a regular Swagbucks app on either app store that attempts to mimic the regular site features. It’s a completely separate app and may be worth downloading so that you can earn even more.
Fourth Tip: Fill out your Survey Profile and Register
You’ve already set up your Swagbucks account and you’ve set yourself up to begin earning Swagbucks passively. It’s now time to fill out your survey profile and register for all that Swagbucks offers.
Filling out the survey profiles is important as not only will it earn you Swagbucks, but it will also help Swagbucks send your relevant surveys that you are likely to qualify for. This is important, as it saves you time by screening you out of surveys you do not qualify for.
To fill our your profile, go to the “Answer” section on the top Swagbucks menu, and then click “Paid Surveys”. You will see the following page:
Make sure you fill out as much as you can and sign up for the targeted e-mail surveys.
Fifth Tip: Install the Swagbucks Toolbar/ Extension
If you’re serious about using Swagbucks it’s important to install the Swagbucks Toolbar/Extension. The name will vary by the browser you are using.
Why is the toolbar important? It gives you instant access to Swagbucks Search. It will give you an alert for all SwagCodes and promotions when they are published. And it will give you quicker access to SBTV.
Saving your time is what makes the toolbar worth the install.
In my eyes, this is a more optional tip. If you don’t want your friends and family to know you are using Swagbucks ignore this step.
For everyone else, liking Swagbucks on Facebook will yield you an additional 5 SB. Not a goldmine, but every bit helps.
