  • 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.

    What is Swagbucks?

    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.

  • There are lots of ways to earn 'SB' (the currency of Swagbucks*), so even if there's not a cracking sign-up deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't earn extra points. It's worth checking Swagbucks regularly for new offers and ways to rack up SB.

    Ways to earn include:

    • Complete surveys – Complete surveys and polls ranging from 2-40 minutes, which Swagbucks says could net you 300-500 SB per hour of work.
    • Install and play free desktop or app games – Offers we've seen include: Install Monopoly Go, play and reach board 101 (3,125 SB), Install Animal & Coins play and reach level 250 (up to 10,000 SB).
    • Cashback for shopping online – Cashback in the form of SB is available at 2,000+ online stores, eg, Nike (2% cashback), Boots (2% cashback) and Argos (1% cashback). Remember, cashback is never guaranteed, and don't assume Swagbucks will have the best rates. See our Top cashback sites for more info.
       
    • Discover – Try out new companies and websites by taking free trials, downloading free apps, entering free competitions and more. Good offers we've seen in the past include: check your credit score free with Experian (500 SB), open a Revolut account (1,000 SB) and HelloFresh (800 SB). Just remember to cancel any free trials before they're over to avoid being charged – just check Swagbucks T&Cs to be sure you'll still get your points.
       
    • Search using the Swagbucks search engine – Use Swagbucks search instead of, eg, Google to earn Swagbucks for your searches. You can also set your default search engine to Swagbucks so you don't forget.
       
    • Download and play free desktop or app games – Offers we've seen include: download King of Avalon and reach level 18 (4,838 SB), download Rise of Kingdoms and reach level 17 (4,000 SB).

    • Download the free 'Swagbutton' browser extension – It'll let you know where you can earn SB with partners of Swagbucks.
       
    • Refer friends – Earn 300 SB for referring people to Swagbucks, plus earn 10% commission on whatever they make.

    • Look out for daily goal and to-do lists for extra points – Complete daily goals set by Swagbucks, eg, 'earn 40 SB in the next 12 hours to get a 5 SB bonus'. Or, finish to-do lists, eg, 'complete 6 out of 8 specified activities to earn 1-4 SB'.

    • Check the MSE Forum – The Swagbucks 2024 thread is good starting place with links to just about every topic. There’s also a dedicated thread for sharing Swagbucks codes.

     

    Ways to turn your SB into cash, online gift cards, or donations to charity:

    • Online gift cards – Swap points for eGift cards, eg, Amazon £10 eGift card or £10 M&S for 1,250 SB. Gift cards can be tricky – see our Gift cards guide for warnings, especially relevant if you're not planning on spending 'em straight away.
    • Charity donation – Choose an amount over 5 SB (1 SB = $0.01) to donate to charity. Check the Swagbucks website for your chosen charity to be sure it accepts donations this way. Cash via PayPal – Swap your points for credit in your PayPal account. Get £10 of Paypal credit for 1,250 SB, or £5 for 625 SB.
    • Cash via PayPal – Swap your points for credit in your PayPal account. Get £10 of Paypal credit for 1,450 SB, or £5 for 800 SB.

    Earn £30 Amazon voucher doing quick online activities

    Including surveys, searches & games. Newbies get £20 bonus after earning their first £10

    Expired

    Swagbucks is a site that rewards you for online activity such as answering polls, completing surveys, or watching videos. It gives you points (called 'SB'), which you can then cash in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards.

    Newbies who sign up via our MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link can get bonus points equivalent to £20 in Amazon (or other) gift cards once you've earned 1,250 SB (equivalent to £10) – giving you a total of £30. However, you'll need to earn the required 1,250 SB (points) within 30 days of signing up. See more on how to get your free £20 bonus below.

    This offer ends at 11.59pm on Tuesday 7 May.

    Important: When registering via the link above, don't click the option to enter an additional sign-up code as this will invalidate our sign-up offer and you won't get your £20 boosted bonus.

    How do I earn £10 in points?

    Once you've signed up via the link above, start earning points by doing any of the activities you fancy. The number of SB you'll earn for each one depends on the activity – some are faster earners than others. These are a few that can give you a good start...

    • Surveys. These are a popular choice as they’re simple to do and there are plenty of them. A 15-minute survey gives an average of about 100 SB, but this can vary, with some earning more and some less.
    • Mobile games. If you’re a gamer, you might already play one of the featured free games, such as the mobile app game Empire & Puzzles in which case you can get paid to do something you do anyway. Although the SB offered for playing games is very high, bear in mind that you need to be a new user and it will take at least five hours (and sometimes weeks) to earn them. Empire & Puzzles gets you 8,500 SB if you reach level 25 within 60 days.
    • Checking your credit score. You can earn 750 SB in one pop by signing up to check your credit score with Experian, which only takes a couple of minutes. 

    Important: You won't bag the MSE Blagged £20 bonus if you don't earn at least 1,250 SB within 30 days, so don't leave it to the last minute to start racking up points.

    See our Swagbucks tips & tricks for a list of all the ways you can earn SB.

    Warning: We've previously had reports of some people being charged after completing tasks to receive Swagbucks. Please make sure you do not sign up to any third-party, as by leaving the Swagbucks site, you may sign up to platforms which charge. Examples include FreeStuff.eu, which is an independent rewards programme running a deal on Swagbucks, which via Stripey Giraffe, sends texts which cost £4.50 a week. We're looking into this, but to prevent it happening to you, please don't sign up to any third-party platforms.

    We've had some queries and feedback on how Swagbucks works recently, so we’ve addressed these with Swagbucks and have put its responses in 'More info' below.

    How do I get my free £20 bonus?

    Once you've earned 1,250 SB within 30 days of registering, an extra 2,500 SB (equivalent to £20) will be added to the 'My Swagbucks cards' bit of your account within 10 days – that'll give you a total of 3,750 SB (equivalent to £30) to redeem any way you like.

    Every time you earn 1,250 SB, you can redeem them for £10 e-gift cards (such as Amazon). These will arrive by email within 10 working days, or you can convert your earnings into PayPal cash which would also work out as 1,250 SB = £10 PayPal cash.

    You do not need to give any payment information when you sign up.

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

    For more ways to turn online activities into cash, see our Top 22 Online Survey Sites and our Make Money Online guide.

    • Here are some of your questions we put to Swagbucks, along with its answers:

      Will I be required to submit a passport/driving licence of form of ID to validate my identity at any point of the Swagbucks sign up/playing process?

      During the sign-up process, you are not required to submit ID verification, however, in some cases if suspicious behaviour is detected, Swagbucks may ask you to complete ID verification. Any web traffic passing through this verification process is encrypted via HTTPS and TLS 1.2. Data in the database is encrypted using AES-256 encryption. Decryption keys are stored on separate hosts and rotated on a regular basis.

      How long does it take to do a questionnaire and receive points?

      An average survey takes 15 minutes to complete and rewards members with approximately 100SB. However, due to the nature of market research, some surveys pay more, and some less. Most members have more than 10 available surveys each day,  so reaching 1,250 SB within 30 days by completing surveys is achievable. Users have also the opportunity to discover special offers and accumulate SB even faster.

      My accounts was deactivated for ‘unauthorised activity and being fraudulent’ when I tried claim a voucher - why is this?

      We reward members with over 7,000 gift cards and vouchers every day. As such, we have dynamic checks at the point of voucher redemption, based on member behaviour. Accounts are rarely deactivated. Rather if an account exhibits suspicious behaviour, further verification checks may be requested prior to the voucher issue.

      I tried to create an account but Swagbucks told me I have already registered that email?

      Members must be sure that they haven’t used their email address to sign-up with Swagbucks before. This offer is exclusive to new members.

      I keep receiving spam emails and calls after signing up - why is this?

      By joining Swagbucks and accepting their T&Cs, members may receive promotional emails from brands we partner with. We only contact members who have opted in to receive these communications. We request that any survey partners, brands or offers promoted on Swagbucks abide by the same practice. In the event a member believes to have been contacted illegitimately, we would ask that they contact the Customer Service Team to report the communication, supplying as much information as possible.

It gives you points (called 'SB'), which you can then cash in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards. If lockdown's got you spending more time online at the moment, why not get paid for it?

    Usually, our MSE Blagged Swagbucks deals get brand new sign-ups a bonus when they earn a certain number of points, but this time we've got something to benefit ALL users – newbies as well as existing members. If you go via our Swagbucks* link by 11.59pm on Sun 10 Jan, you can get bonus points equivalent to £10 in Amazon (or other) gift cards once you've earned 1,300 SB (equivalent to £10) – giving you a total of £20.

    You'll need to earn your SB (points) within 40 days of clicking the link. See more on how to get your free £10 bonus below.

    How do I earn £10 of points?

    Once you've visited via the link above, start earning points by fulfilling any of the activities you fancy. The number of SB you'll earn for each one depends on the activity – some are faster earners than others.

    Surveys are a popular choice since they’re simple to do and there are plenty of them. A typical 15-minute survey gives about 120 SB. See 'More info' below for some of the quickest ways to earn £10 of SB.

    If you’re a gamer, you might already play one of the featured free games, such as Forge of Empires, in which case you can get paid to do something you do anyway.

    Important: You won't bag the bonus if you don't earn at least 1,300 SB within 40 days, so don't leave it to the last minute to start racking up points.

    If you're already a member and have points pending in or credited to your account, they won't count towards your qualifying 1,300 points. You'll need to earn an additional 1,300 from scratch after clicking through our link.

    See our Swagbucks tips & tricks for a list of all the ways you can earn SB.

    How do I get my free £10 bonus?

    Once you've earned 1,300 SB within 40 days of clicking through, an extra 1,300 SB will be added to the 'My Swagbucks cards' bit of your account within 10 days – that'll give you a total of 2,600 SB (equivalent to £20) to redeem any way you like.

    The £10 Amazon e-gift card is currently on sale for 1,300 SB, so you could opt to redeem against two of those, for example. The e-gift card will arrive by email within 10 working days, or you might like to convert your earnings into PayPal cash, though that will use up more points (1,400 SB = £10 PayPal).

    For more ways to turn online activities into cash, see our Top 25 Online Survey Sites and our Make Money Online guide.

    • You do not need to give any payment information when you sign up.

      Only UK Swagbucks accounts are eligible for this offer.

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

      What are some of the quickest ways to earn £10 of SB?

      You can earn 300 SB in one pop by signing up to check your credit score with Experian, which only takes a couple of minutes. Entering a competition via OfferX will get you 50 SB and takes less than a minute, while downloading the free finance app Yolt gets you 200 SB.

      Another popular way of earning includes starting a free trial of Amazon Prime, but be aware that it's a subscription so you’d have to remember to cancel within 30 days if you don’t want to be charged later on.
