Ultimate Swagbucks Guide - How To Maximize Your Points In 2020

- February 16, 2020
Welcome to this 2020 Swagbucks guide! Here you will find all the ways you can earn Swagbucks points to ultimately receive free brand name gift cards. Whether you are new or a long-time member, this guide will surely help you discover the top-earning tasks to help you maximize your Swagbucks earnings.


Before we begin talking about each task lets go over some basic knowledge for all the newbies.

- Swagbucks uses a point system to calculate your earnings called SB, which is short for Swagbucks points. 1 SB is equivalent to 1 cent, therefore 500 SB is equal to $5.

- All SB that you earn in your account must be redeemed within TWO YEARS from the date that you received those points. If you do not use them in that allotted time the will expire and no longer be usable.

Sign Up Promotions and FREE SB Points

Now that you are ready to sign up here are a few promotions that will kick start your earnings. The first one is just for joining.

- Sign Up via our link and Get a 300 SB bonus if you earn 300 SB during your first 30 days from your sign up day. You must use the link below in order to get the bonus.


*Make sure you verify your email address and account, they will send you an email so do not ignore it. This is a requirement for you to be able to cash out your rewards.


- Spend $25 at any store through Swagbucks Shop and receive a $10 sign up bonus. This promotion does require you to activate this bonus to your account. You will be able to activate this bonus in the Swag up section. This also must be completed within 30 days from the date you signed up.

SwagButton

The SwagButton alerts you when valid coupon codes are available while you are online shopping, as well as, alerts you if the site you are on offers cashback. Not to mention oftentimes Swagbucks issues Swagbutton only Swag Codes that must be entered in via the button. If you have yet to do so I highly recommend adding it to your Computer now.


Setting up your Swagbucks account to maximize earnings

- Complete your profile and learn how to earn SB rewards and this will earn you 32 SB

- Install the Swag button (more about this below) to receive 50 SB

- On the left-hand side of your screen turn on Daily Goals. Details about how to use this to earn free SB below

- At the top of your screen place your mouse over "Answer" and click surveys. Enter in your age/gender and birthday to earn 2 SB. This will also help them target surveys (which is one of the tasks to earn SB) that better relate to you.

- Answering survey profile questions will give you 2 SB for every 10 questions answered.

- Enroll in the Member Recognition Program. This program is based on lifetime SB earning. There are 10 levels of recognition. Each with their own benefits and rewards. The lowest level is a pearl and the highest level a diamond. To sign up go to My Account section located at the top right and hit enroll now. There is a 250 lifetime SB minimum to start earning benefits associated with this program. The reason I am mentioning this in the setup section is that you can go ahead and enroll now you don't have to wait till you reach 250 SB.

Daily Swagbucks Tasks

Maximize your SB earning by completing your daily " To do list". You can earn up to 2 SB bonuses daily for completing all listed items, which will be immediately credited to your account. Each day your to-do list will include a mixture of these 10 items listed below, next to each task on your list you will see a blue checkmark meaning you have completed that task.

Daily Search: You can complete this task by clicking daily search on your to-do list or use the Swagbucks search which is probably the easiest. No SB earned, but this will complete this task for the day and give you the possibility to each a search reward.

Deal of the day: From your to-do list click on Deal of the Day to complete this task. Your SB earnings will change daily.

In-Store Cash Back: No purchase necessary to complete the task. Click "add off" you will be prompted to add a credit card, but nothing will be charged to it.

Swagbucks App

Having a hard time finding time to earn SB on your computer?  If so I have good news.  You can still use Swagbucks via a phone or tablet. Either way, I highly recommend you download the Swagbucks App to keep earning SB while on the go. Even if you have constant access to a computer it pays SB to also use their numerous apps.

Numerous Swagbucks Apps 

In addition to their Main app mentioned above, they also offer multiple stand-alone apps. Such as their Live Trivia app called Swag IQ and their numerous mobile watch apps that pay you to watch videos.

Swag IQ will earn you SB based on how many questions you get correct. Answer all 10 questions correct and you win the jackpot or part of it depending on how many people answered all of the questions correctly. If you were to miss a question you can still continue to play along, but you will no longer be eligible for the jackpot. You will however still receive SB for each correct answer. This game show will go live 2 times a day so be sure to catch it both times to maximize your chances at the jackpot.

Miscellaneous SB Earnings

Swag Codes: You can generally find these codes on their website or social media. Generally, you will earn 2-4 SB, but can be worth up to 10 SB.

Daily/Total Goal

If you reach your total or daily goal each day you will earn bonus SB. To the left of your Swagbucks inbox, you will find your daily goal. When you reach the daily goal, Goal 1, you will earn bonus SB which will then count toward your winning streaks. When you reach your Total Goal your bonus SB earned will be larger. However, whether you reach your Total Goal or not will not affect your winning streaks. The more often that you complete the daily and total goals they will get harder to complete, therefore making your SB bonus increase.

Winning Streaks
Depending on the length of your winning streak will determine your bonus SB earnings.

7 days in a row - 25 SB bonus
14 days in a row - 100 SB bonus
21 days in a row - 200 SB bonus
Each day in the month - 300 SB bonus

SB earnings from Daily and winning streaks get paid out every month on the 5th. Make sure you claim these earning in the Daily Goal Section, Check Status, and Claim.
