  • Earn With Swagbucks: How I earn 50 – 100+ Swag Bucks in less than 2 hours every day

    Get free gift cards from Swagbucks!

    As I mentioned before, I’ve already made over a thousand dollars through Swagbucks this year, so it’s easy to see why Swagbucks is my favorite way to earn FREE money.

    Right now, Swagbucks is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky CFO reader who joins/joined Swagbucks using referral link and earns at least 50 Swag Bucks in total from any combination of Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer or Discover between Oct. 28 and Nov. 29!

    It’s easy to earn 50 Swag Bucks, so I thought I’d share how I earn more than that every morning before I even take the kids to school:

    1. Open a browser that has the Swagbucks Toolbar installed. Total: 1 Swag Buck.

    2. Play 10 Games. Get 2 Swag Bucks per 2 games, up to 10 Swag Bucks per day. {Tip: you don’t have to finish each game; just get a feel for how long you have to play before you can click “Give Up” to get credit … though the Games can be very fun!} Total: 11 Swag Bucks.

    3. Peruse the NOSO offers. You can easily decline each one, then enter the captcha code for 2 Swag Bucks. Total: 13 Swag Bucks.

    4. Look through the Special Offers. There are often 1 Swag Buck offers under the Radium One tab, and I earned 12 Swag Bucks today through those. There are surveys under the Peanut Labs tab, though I didn’t qualify for any this morning. The Peanuts Lab and SponsorPay tabs sometimes have easy Swag Buck offers, too. Total after Special Offers: 30 Swag Bucks.

    5. Watch SBTV Mobile on an Android or iOS device using the free SBTV app. You get 2 Swag Bucks for every 5 videos, up to 50 Swag Bucks per day. These Swag Bucks are independent of the web-based SBTV, so you can earn an additional 50 Swag Bucks per day through the app. I manage to watch enough videos during my morning routine to earn about 20 Swag Bucks. Total: 50 Swag Bucks.

    6. Do the Encrave Activities. I watch some of these videos, and earn another 30 Swag Bucks in the morning. Total: 80 Swag Bucks.

    7. Do Surveys. One survey in the morning can get me past the Daily Goal, but I don’t always qualify. Today, I just received 2 consolation Swag Bucks. Total: 82 Swag Bucks.

    This is my daily Swag Bucks routine, and I accomplish it while also going through my email, Feedly, and drafting Morning Coffee. So I feel pretty productive getting all this done, especially since I usually hit the daily goal before I take the kids to school in the morning!
