Hello everyone! Most of you already know of Swagbucks, however here's my guide for passive/semi-passive earning. You can earn $1.10 everyday without a having to spend time taking surveys. 

 

What is Swagbucks?

For those of you who don't know what Swagbucks is, it's a site where you can complete tasks, watch videos, shop, and play flash games to get points. You can then exchange those points for gift cards, such as Gamestop, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, etc. 500 Points = 5 Dollar Gift Card.

 

More About This Guide

This guide requires you to have a unused Android smartphone to generate points. If you don't have an old phone that you don't use, you can buy cheap refurbished or used smartphones. I recommend the site, C7Recycle, where you can buy a phone in the range of $10-$20

 

Getting Started

To get started you need a Swagbucks account. To register go to the Swagbucks site and simply create your account. If you could help out a fellow CAG, please use my referral link. Simply sign up through my link below.

Link: http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/wongfu4lyfe

 

Setting Up

To get started, on your Android Device, download the following apps.

 

After all those apps have installed, log into your Swagbucks account. All these apps cycle through videos themselves and earn Swagbucks. Just start the app and leave it cycling videos by itself. Every so often the app may run into an error, so be mindful to check back every few minutes. Each app does have a daily limit, so you need to switch through the different apps throughout the day. The apps will display a message informing you that the daily limit has been reached.

 

Maximizing Your Time

To maximize your time and to get to the daily limit the quickest, watch the shortest videos. To do this favorite the shortest video in the list by swiping left. Then just go to your favorites list in the app menu and leave the phone cycling through your favorites list. To find the shortest videos, here's a list created by the Swagbucks subreddit: http://www.reddit.co...pp_video_times/

 

End Notes

If you have a good month and get every point every day, you can end up with 40 dollars in Gift Cards, just from watching these videos. You can simply leave your phone next to you at work and check back every half and hour or so. It may not seem like a huge sum of cash, but it's pretty good for minimal work. You could buy a new video game with that money :P

 

Also I can't stress enough, please use my referral link. This way I also earn points from you signing up. It's a win-win for the both of us

I wish you good luck. Happy earning!

I don't suppose this would work for iPhones? I'm already a Swagbucks member, but this would get me back into the swing of things.

It indeed does, however I only recommend Android since more of the apps are currently available on Android. Moviecli.ps and Indymusic TV currently aren't available on iOS. Without those 2 apps you make 90 points a day or 28 dollars a month. Still pretty good!

I only have an iPhone, so as long as I can earn something, I'm happy. Thanks!

Is there a way to see video runtimes without having to manually start up each one and compare them? Maybe the other apps work differently, but Swagbucks TV doesn't show the runtimes without clicking on each video.

This is where the reddit list helps. Find the shortest video according to the list and favorite the shortest video only by swiping left. Just go to your favorites list and it'll play the shortest video repeatedly.

Thanks for the very interesting article! I used to use SB a few years ago but lost interest when they went captcha crazy. Got one question for you however!

 

  • How often do the shortest videos change? I'd prefer to just set my favorites and be one and done, but if that's not possible I'd like to know when I should check for new short content on average.
  • Do you know of a way to block the ads that appear in between the videos shown by the app?
  • Do you run into advertisements that you have to cancel on your own? This ties into the above question honestly.
  • Are new apps like this ever added? Or are these 6 kinda set in stone?

 

Thanks again!

It adds up. I was able to get a PS4 essentially for free. Amazon 5 gc are the cheapest at 450.

OK, I'm dumb.. why do you need an unused phone?  Just so you don't clog up your phone with stuff?  Wouldn't you have to pay for the additional phone line then?  What am I missing?

Sorry I couldn't answer your questions earlier. I've been busy all week.

  • The shortest videos don't change that often, but I believe the shortest videos won't remove from your favorites list.
  • Unfortunately, no. There has been more close out ads recently. Don't know why.
  • There are some and as said above, those ads shouldn't appear TOO frequently.
  • Not quite sure. Don't have much info on that. They are trying to integrate a video section in the mobile Swagbucks app.

No, an extra phone isn't necessary, but I use my actual phone for other things, so I have another cheap phone to run all the apps. The phones I listed are prepaid phone, meaning buying a phone plan isn't necessary. Just never activate the phone and only use wifi and you're good to go.

They are changing that for March onwards. 5 dollar GCs are gonna be 500, but you can redeem unlimited 5 dollar GCs. The 25 dollar GCs will now only be 2200 points, getting you an extra 3 dollars. Only one 25 GC a month though.

This might be a dumb question, but...how do you remove a video from your Favorites? I don't see any way to do it in the SBTV app.

Don't know if its the same on iPhone, but on Android you swipe to the left on the video you want removed.

 

<------ swipe.

Thanks. I saw the heart symbol (Favorites) and didn't think to swipe all the way. :oops:

Oh, that's genius.  Thanks for clearing that up.  Never had a burner before lol...

You probably can't do this stuff on a Kindle Fire if I don't see the apps in the Amazon App Store, right?   My GF has one of those but I hate it.

I can try sideloading the apps on my kindle when I get home to see if it works. I'll update with results.

Sadly, this statement is no longer true. $5 Amazon GC are now 500 points.
