Swagbucks video apps are no longer available
Please note – this is an old blog post. Swagbucks no longer offer the video apps, so any earning opportunities mentioned below are no longer viable. Please visit the GPT Genies Facebook group for any questions or updates on video apps.
Today’s the day you’ve been waiting for (ok, probably not but it was a good opener). We’re talking about Lifestylz! This app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
If you haven’t joined Swagbucks yet, join now so you can make the most of this post.
Download LifeStylz here:
Once you’ve downloaded the app, sign in with your Swagbucks details.
Lifestylz only contains videos. This makes it easy and simple to use.
When watching videos on Lifestylz we recommend going to the Short Clips or Home and Garden section. On an Android device you can add the shortest videos to favourites which will reduce your overall viewing time. Let the videos run until the app says you’ve reached your total for the day.
Currently, you can earn 10 SB from each app from 8am GMT (midnight PT) – 2am GMT (6pm PT), and another 10 SB per app between 2am GMT and 8am GMT. Sometimes you may get bonus rounds, these are great and will add to your daily earnings.
You will often get ads between the videos. These are normal and are how Prodege (Swagbucks’ parent company) gets paid and, therefore, how we get paid. Therefore, there is no way to skip the ads or disable them. Occasionally, an ad will have a countdown and then an X will appear. You can click on the X to close the ad slightly earlier. Some ads require you to click out before the playlist will continue.
You can see how to use Lifestylz below.
Unfortunately, Prodege removed the option to favourite videos on Lifestylz in an update several months ago. In addition, they removed the counter that told us how many more videos we had to watch to earn SB. Now there is just a bar that gradually fills up.
Many of us choose to run the Short Clips or Home & Garden playlist to reduce overall viewing time.
When watching videos on the Android app we recommend favouriting some of the shortest videos in the Short Clips section. A suggestion is the “Dan Curry – Leper Hockey Game” video at 14 secs.
