Review of Make Money by Searching Online

Swagbucks is a reward website that allows you to get rewards by doing various activities. It’s based in USA and powered by Prodege LLC, which is the web's leading provider of branded and incentivized reward portals. However currently membership is only available for people from USA, Canada and UK.

Sign up:

It's very easy to set up an account on Swagbucks. First you visit and click the banner ‘register’. Then you need provide your real name, email address, a password and residential address,etc. Once you have done that, you can receive a conform email shortly.

As a member, you can earn redeemable point, which is actually called Swag Buck (SB) on Swagbucks and acts like their currency. You will get 30 free Swag Bucks for registration.

Things to do on


Similar as Google, Yahoo and Ask, Swagbucks has a search engine, which includes web, images, video, news and comparison shopping functions. Different from most searching websites on Swagbucks you can win Swag Bucks by searching.

2. Daily poll

On Swagbucks there is an item called Daily poll. Every day you can click the poll to vote one time and you can be credited one Swag Buck.

3. Surveys

On Swagbucks there is an item called Trusted Surveys where you can get paid for taking surveys. In general before you start you will need to answer some basic questions about yourself to see if you are qualified for their paid surveys or not.

4. Swagbucks TV

Swagbucks TV is the latest feature on Swagbucks. You can win Swag Bucks by watching the videos and ads on Swagbucks TV. However it isn’t about how many videos you start, it’s about how many you complete. Also during the video content time Swagbucks run Swag Codes that can be used to collect Swag Bucks.

5. Shop on line

There are almost 200 stores at Swagbucks. If you shop on these stores via Swagbucks you can make 2 Swag Bucks per $1 you spend.

6. Get paid to sign up

Similar to many cash back websites, there are two kinds of special offers on Swagbucks. One is to sign up for limited time offers via Swagbucks and earn Swag Bucks. The other one is to view their no obligation offers and win Swag Bucks. Usually these offers request you to sign up or receive newsletter. However you can skip them and have a chance to find a special Swag Code reward at the end as well as get one Swag Buck credit.

7. Trade in

You can recycle your mobile phone and MP3 player to earn Swag Bucks. You can also sell your video games or consoles to get Swag Bucks.

8. Games

On Swagbucks there is an item called Games. If you play them you can earn some Swag Bucks as promised. If you connect your Swagbucks account to your Facebook account you can participate some games displayed on Swagbucks Facebook site.

9. Get paid to refer

Referring friends is a great way to earn passive income on Swagbucks. Tthat means every time your referrals win you do too. You can invite your friends in person or put your promotion banners or Swagbucks widget on your blog, website or social network, etc.

The Payment:

Generally your earnings will be displayed immediately on your account and you have two ways to spend Swag bucks. One is to shop at the Swag store, where you can get about 1400 physical and digital reward options. For example you can get $5 to your PayPal account using 700 Swag bucks. The other way is to entre Swagstakes to win E-gift card or physical items using a limited Swag bucks.

What I like:

I have joined Swagbucks for one year and have been totally paid $40 to my PayPal account. So far my experience of Swagbucks has been positive. I think Swagbucks is a super website and I like it very much. The site is very easy to navigate. It provides many chances to earn Swag bucks. The prizes are reasonably priced and available in both physical and electrical styles to meet different desires. And I always get paid on the time they promised.

What I dislike:

I’m satisfied with the quality of the searching result, but sometimes there are too many sponsored links (you can consider them as ads) among your research results. Also as I said earlier the membership is limited, it does affect your promotion activities.


I would certainly recommend anybody who searches online regularly to give Swagbucks a go, although the earnings can’t make you rich.

I use swagbucks too and you have described it very accurately. It is easy to use but very time consuming. Great review.

I have heard of Swagbucks, but have been told by others that it is very time consuming for the monies earned. You provided a much different story. Thanks you!
