Please note – this is an old blog post. Swagbucks no longer offer the video apps, so any video app earning opportunities mentioned below are no longer viable. Please visit the GPT Genies Facebook group for any questions or updates on video apps.

Wondering if there is any money really to be made with Survey Sites? Well with Swagbucks there is. The more time you have to put into the site the more money you will earn from it, and I make around £100 a month from this site alone. Don’t have the time, or struggling to make a start? Read on to see how you can earn £40 a month with very little effort on Swagbucks.

The table above details what you need to do to earn a minimum  £40 a month from Swagbucks. It might look like a lot, and you could be thinking this is going to take up a lot of your time, but everything in the table requires minimal amount of time, and very little effort.


Daily To Do List:

Use your to do list as a guide as to what to complete. Start by answering the daily poll. This will only get you 1SB a day, but add this up over a year and that is 365SB just for answering a poll question.

If you go to the watch section there is an area called nCrave. Again it will only get you 1SB a day, but it all adds up. Set it running and then after 40 seconds you can click to the next page. I get on with other things whilst it is playing and check every now and then to see if I can move it on to the next page. Occasionally you might be lucky and find an autorun nCrave, which run on their own without you needing to click next page. You can read more about them here.

Playing games will get you 10SB a day. They can be found on the Swagbucks homepage. Sounds hard, but we have some helpful tips that will help you to complete them with no effort at all. You can read more about the Swagbucks games here. Please note that games are only available on PC, not mobile. is an incredibly easy way to earn. Click to play it and let it run, and it will run through all the videos in the playlist. It will only get you 3SB a day on average but you don’t need to do anything else with it, just leave it to play in the background whilst you get on with other things.

Search wins are another easy way to get some extra SB. You can usually get 3 search wins a day, one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. I use the links in the posts here to help me get a search win. The amount of SB you get for a search win can vary, but on average it is 5SB a search win, so that is another 15SB a day.

There are several discovers that you can complete on Swagbucks, but at the moment the easiest is the flight searches on OfferToro wall. All you have to do is complete a flight search and click on a partnering link for 1SB. There are more discover offers mentioned in our posts here.


Swagbucks has 6 Videoapps available to download on iPhone, 7 on Android. Each app will get you 10SB a day, sometimes there are bonus rounds. Just set them running and check them throughout the day to make sure they are still playing, and once they have stopped crediting start the next app running. Playing all of the apps will get you 60SB a day (70SB on android). This is lot quicker to do if you happen to have a spare device to run the apps on, rather than using your mobile phone. Read more about the Swagbucks video apps here, and there are some helpful tips on how to best use the video apps here.



Surveys are available on the gold surveys page. They can be hit and miss, and you might find you get disqualified from a lot, especially in the beginning, but you still usually get 1SB each time you disqualify from a survey, and these points do add up so it is always worth trying. With gold surveys, which can be found by clicking on Answer in the menu, you can get 5SB disqualifies in total. Peanut labs surveys, which can be found under Discover and on the Peanut Labs wall, have no max limit to how many disqualify points you can get a day.

I usually manage to complete at least one survey a day, at an average of 50SB a survey (although I regularly complete surveys that are worth a lot more). Some days you will be luckier than others, and the more effort you put in and the more surveys you complete, the more you will earn. Keep a look out for Instant Surveys. They appear on the home screen and are only a couple of questions, but you have to be quick as they go fast.


Bonus SB:

One of the great things about Swagbucks is the various ways they offer ways for you to earn a bonus. By completing your daily to do list mentioned above you can get a 10SB bonus. Achieve your daily goal every day and you will get a daily goal bonus which on average equals 10SB. If you manage to reach your daily goal every day of the month (which if you complete all of the little tasks above you should be able to achieve your daily goal every day) you will get an extra 300SB monthly master bonus.

Swagbucks also run several games every month including Swago, where you can earn 300SB, and Shopping Swago (easier than normal Swago but only worth 50SB). Read our post all about the various Bonus opportunities available with Swagbucks totaling over 1000SB a month.


As you can see, by completing a few simple things every day, you can easily get £40 a month with Swagbucks with very little effort. Of course, there are lots more earning opportunities available, and I manage to cash out £100 a month on average from Swagbucks alone. Please note you will need a desktop and a mobile or tablet available to complete all of the above tasks.
