My Opinion

Swagbucks is a decent way to make some extra cash and save you some, but for a full-time income not so much you can get carried away and spend plenty of time in their platform looking around and trying to qualify for surveys.

Shopping with them is easy also but everywhere on the internet now days is easy to shop. They do offer some nice discounts to places for things that if this is what you are in need of then I say go save some money.

Surveys take different times to complete and are usually very simple to do; because of times, they pay you accordingly with Swagbucks.

You can refer a friend and earn $3.00 per person doing this, but your friend must sign up for you to receive credit.

Pay Out Information

multi gift cards

You can cash out with 2500 Swagbucks to PayPal upon verification of your PayPal account. Or you can turn your Swagbucks in for gift cards at different locations but the most common are Amazon and Wal-Mart.

They do have prepaid Visa and other smaller merchants if you have them in your area this can work well for you.

Swagbucks do not seem to be worth a very high amount when I am looking through the gift cards and PayPal you need at least 1000 Swagbucks to get a $10.00 gift card.

When your only getting most of the time 2 to 50 Swagbucks per survey this is going to take some time to reach an amount that is required to cash in for the money or gift cards.

And if you do not qualify then this is more time wasted that is how I see it.


Swagbucks is not a scam for sure, but can you seriously make a full-time income with them NO!

I think their payout system is nicely laid out and if you have plenty of time doing nothing then this could be a platform for you; also if you like shopping online with the discounts they offer then you can save yourself some bucks.

Hope you enjoyed my thoughts on Swagbucks today, please return in the future for more platforms and survey sites that I will be giving my opinion on.

  1. I’ve actually been a member of Swagbucks for about a year now and have been paid before by them so I concur with you that they’re not a scam, although it’s a very low earning opportunity and you shouldn’t depend on them for a full time income.

    You’re likely to make $20 a month or so, but good thing they do pay fast. I love that they pay with Paypal which I consider to the the golden standard of online payments, it’s trusted everywhere for a good reason. Have you made money with Paypal before? How much did you earn per month?

    • Kent,

      Thanks for visiting today.  I have earned with Swagbucks and through PayPal is how I always make sure I am getting paid they are the most reliable method out there.

      Glad to hear you use Swagbucks for a little extra cash exactly what I do – they do not waste time like the other survey sites.

      And, I usually make around $50.00 per month with all the survey sites together.  Please come back for other places that I find you might be interested in 🙂
