Swagbucks logoFree 50 Swagbucks on your birthday*For existing users on points-based rewards site Swagbucks

Ongoing

If you're a Swagbucks member, you can get a bonus 50SB points on your birthday, valid for 30 days, when you cash out a voucher. It's called a 'Rebate SwagUp' and is explained in more detail on the Swagbucks FAQ page.

If you're not already a member, you can register via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link and get bonus points worth £10 if you earn £5 (700 SB - we reckon about three and a half hours' work) within 30 days of signing up. See our full Swagbucks deal for more information.

Swagbucks is a site that pays you points (called SB) to answer daily polls, watch videos, play games, search online and more. The points can then be cashed in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards.

Usually you get only a few points for registering, but newbies who register via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link will get bonus points worth £10 if they earn £5 (700 SB - we reckon about three and a half hours' work) within 30 days of signing up. So that's a total of £15 to spend on gift cards for Amazon, M&S, Starbucks and more.

Important: Before buying gift cards, check their cost in SB in both £5 and £10 denominations as there's currently a sale on both, with the discount varying depending on the card. For example, a £5 Amazon gift card costs 700 SB, so three can be bought for 2,100 SB (the total you'll have after receiving your bonus), but a £10 Amazon gift card costs 1,440 SB. Conversely, while a £5 M&S gift card costs 700 SB, a £10 one costs 1,360 SB, so you'd save SB by buying one of each denomination. Swagbucks couldn't tell us when the sale will end, but when it does the £5 and £10 gift cards will likely revert to their normal price of 849 SB and 1,698 SB respectively.  

When registering through the above link, don't select the option to enter an additional sign-up bonus code as this will invalidate the MSE sign-up offer.

How do I earn points?

Most surveys give you an average of 70 points and Swagbucks says the average user earns 200 points per day for about an hour's work (though this varies). Surveys can take up to 20 minutes each. See the Paid Surveys guide for full tips on Swagbucks.

How do I get my free £10?

Once you've earned 700 points (£5 worth), an additional 1,400 points (worth £10) will be transferred to the 'my swagbucks cards' section of your account within 10 days.

You'll have a total of 2,100 points (worth £15) in your account so you can visit the 'rewards store' to choose which gift card you want. The gift card will then arrive within 10 working days, either by post or via email in the case of voucher codes. You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more points (800 SB = £5 PayPal).

Most gift cards can then be redeemed in store or online within a year, though check yours to see exactly when and where you can use it as it varies per retailer.

MSE Anthony says:

The easiest method I found of notching up bucks was installing the Swagbucks search bar and using it whenever I'd normally use Google. By doing this, as well as completing a couple of surveys, I met the minimum required to get the bonus within three weeks of joining.

Swagbucks is a site that pays you points (called SB) to answer daily polls, watch videos, play games, search online and more. The points can then be cashed in for gift cards for retailers such as Amazon, M&S and Starbucks, or for PayPal credit or other rewards.

If you log in or register via this special Swagbucks link*, both new and existing users will receive double points for all SB earned until 11.59pm on Tue 11 Jul (entering any additional codes will invalidate the MSE offer). Double payout bonus points will be rewarded by Sun 20 Aug.

We regularly run Swagbucks promotions for newbies and the site has proved mega popular with MSE'rs, so based on forum feedback, we asked Swagbucks if it could offer a deal such as this one which caters to existing users too - and here it is.

How do I earn points?

Most surveys give you an average of 70 points and Swagbucks says the average user earns 200 points per day for about an hour's work (though this varies) - so 400 SB with this deal. Surveys can take up to 20 minutes each.

£5 (700 SB) and £10 gift cards (1,360 SB-1,440 SB) are currently on sale until Tue 18 Jul, after which they may revert to their normal price of 849 SB and 1,700 SB respectively (though Swagbucks couldn’t confirm). You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more points.

Most gift cards can be redeemed in store or online within a year, though check yours to see exactly when and where you can use it as it varies per retailer.

MSE Anthony says:

Swagbucks logo'Free' £13-£15 Amazon/M&S voucher*Via £25 spend at 500 retailers. Swagbucks cashback newbies

Expired

Swagbucks pays you points (called SB) when you click through and spend at around 500 selected retailers, including Argos, M&S, Debenhams and Topman. The points can then be cashed in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards.

Usually you only get a few points for spending via Swagbucks, but if you're a newbie to its Shop & Earn cashback offers, there's a clever shortcut you can take. Go via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link by Wed 7 Dec and you'll get 2,040 bonus points if you click through to a retailer and spend £25 or more (as well as the normal points for your spend).

While Swagbucks says you can get 'up to £15' in vouchers with this bonus, if you're after Amazon you'll only get £13 as Amazon vouchers cost extra SB (M&S gives £15). If you'd prefer cash, you can also exchange your bonus points for a £10 Paypal voucher.

You should only use this deal if you were planning to spend at one of the 500 retailers anyway, it's not an excuse to overspend. It's worth noting it can take up to 32 days for your voucher to be available to claim, so you can't use it on your £25 spend.

Warning: Don't enter any additional promotional codes when you make a purchase via Shop & Earn, as this will invalidate the MSE bonus offer.

How do I get the voucher/cash?

Once your points have been awarded (it takes up to 32 days), visit the 'rewards store' to choose which gift card you want - Amazon, M&S, Argos, John Lewis, iTunes and more. It will arrive within 10 working days, either by post or email in the case of voucher codes. You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more points (1,440 = £10 Amazon, 1,600 = £10 PayPal).

What counts as a newbie?

To qualify for the offer, you can be an existing Swagbucks user, as long as you haven't used its Shop & Earn cashback offers before. If you're not sure, visit your account (top-right corner), and check for any transactions in 'My Shop & Earn'.

What happens if my cashback doesn't track?

If you've clicked through to a retailer via Swagbucks and made a purchase, the transaction should appear in your account within 2-3 days (although the bonus points themselves may not be awarded for up to 32 days). If the transaction doesn't appear, contact Swagbucks with proof of purchase and it will manually add the points to your account.

Remember, cashback is never 100% guaranteed. See our Top Cashback Sites guide for more info.

How else can I earn points?

Swagbucks also pays you points to answer daily polls, watch videos, play games, search online and more. Most surveys give you an average of 70 points and Swagbucks says the average user earns 200 points per day for about an hour's work (though this varies). See the Paid Surveys guide for full tips on Swagbucks.

Usually you only get a few points for spending via Swagbucks, but newbies to its Shop & Earn cashback offers who go via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link by Tue 19 Jul will get 2,040 bonus points if you click through to a retailer and spend £25 or more (as well as the normal points for your spend).

That gets you at least £10 in vouchers or PayPal cash. But we've blagged a trick to get you up to £12, if you go for the Amazon gift cards (more on that below).

You should only use this deal if you were planning to spend at one of the 500 retailers anyway, it's not an excuse to overspend. It's worth noting it can take up to 32 days for your voucher to be available to claim, so you can't use it on your £25 spend.

Warning: Don't enter any additional promotional codes when you make a purchase via Shop & Earn, as this will invalidate the MSE bonus offer.

How do I get the £10 voucher or cash?

Once your points have been awarded (it takes up to 32 days), visit the 'rewards store' to choose which gift card you want - Amazon, M&S, Argos, John Lewis, iTunes and more. It will arrive within 10 working days, either by post or email in the case of voucher codes. You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more points (1,689 = £10 Amazon, 1,989 = £10 PayPal).

How do I boost it to £12?

You can usually only redeem £3, £5 and £10 gift cards. However we've blagged a £1 Amazon option for users who earn this bonus, so you could redeem a free £12 Amazon voucher without having to earn any extra points, by getting a £10 and two £1 vouchers.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
