1. Take surveys

Brands and markets do invite users of their products and services (which is you and me) once in a while through Swagbucks site to fill out surveys about the products and services they are putting out. The range of the topics are wide from advertising to travel. Actually this is one of the main ways in which people earn Swag Bucks(SB). You get to answer a certain set of questions according to your own views on the matter and after completing the survey you earn the amount of Swagbucks indicated you will earn on completion of the survey. Completing these surveys can take from 5 to 30 minutes.

You can earn from 5 to 250 Swagbucks depending on the type of survey, its urgency and even the length of the survey. Some surveys however, can earn you upto 2500 to 3500 Swagbucks. If one swagbuck equals 1 cent then that is around $25 to $35 if you get to qualify for such a high paying survey which are rare.

Sometimes however, you will not qualify for a survey despite spending several minutes answering prequalifying questions. This is because market researchers often looks for views from users who match specific demographics and so you didn’t qualify because your profile did not match whatever they were looking for. Swagbucks will however reward you with 1 or maybe 2 Swagbucks for attempting the survey.

2. Daily poll
