|A Word From a SwagBucks User
SwagBucks.com queued for review by a MoneyStance Editor.
"This company has been accredited since 05/21/2010 and our complaint history for this company shows the company gave proper consideration to complaints presented by the Bureau."
"Overall, a 4.35 out of 5. The Pros; reward for searching, easy points, variety of prizes, free money, easy site to navigate, great prizes, promote recycling of cell phones, uses google search, quick to recieve prizes, new earning potential almost everyday. The Cons; search results aren't as good as google, takes a long time to get a lot of bucks, over searching can lead to deactivation, won't ever qualify for a survey, takes long time to earn points, embed advertisement in search result, suspicious sites for special offers, each swagbuck is worth less than a cent, not a get rich quick scheme, too long to receive prizes."
"I immediately redeemed my 45 Swag Bucks for an Amazon certificate, which appeared by email within a couple of hours. It's pretty effortless for something I will most definitely use. (And I would have spent that money at Amazon anyway.) I've found that on most days, I can earn a SwagBuck in the morning and another one at night. I get at least one Swag Buck each day, and average about five searches per award. It's worth noting that only your first 20 searches each day qualify for the random awards."
"Swagbucks is certainly worth checking out, but the site could become a little addicting. If you’re going to use it solely for your search engine queries, I’m all for that. After all, we all use search engines anyways, so why not use a search engine that rewards us with free money and prizes? In this regard, using Swagbucks wouldn’t take up any extra time at all. But if you end up sitting on the site filling out surveys, filling out the daily polls, completing special offers, and inviting your friends, your time could be easily sucked away every day. That’s not to say that it’s still not worth it, but you need to seriously consider your time and weight the benefits of the site against the amount of time you’re spending on it."
"I have done Swagbucks for over a year with no problems earning about $25 a month from searching and codes. I started doing SBTV and games when they added it. They recently deactivated me, and a lot of others I heard with absolutely no warning, and no way to appeal their “ruling” , I lost over $25 that i had worked hard to earn all month long. They say I had used a “bot”! Obviously they have no true way to tell this, as i never used a bot, I do not even know what a bot is. I did everything as the current rules stated, clicking on SBTV videos manually. $25 may not seem like much but I am unemployed so it is a lot to me, I would not recommend Swagbucks due this massive termination of accounts with no notice and no valid reason and their lie saying I had used a bot."
"So obviously I think Swagbucks.com is a great opportunity and highly recommended it. So no it's not a scam based on the numerous times I've been paid by them. At the end of the day, they're free opportunities. What do you have to lose? You've probably been surfing the web for years never making one cent, so wouldn't the possibility of making some money for something you already do make more "cents"?"
"Dollar values for Swag Bucks vary widely. It will take careful shopping to get the most out of your hard-earned Swagbucks. You can begin redeeming Swag Bucks when you have only 5 Bucks. For that price, you can get an “exclusive animated vSwag” icon that you can post on your Facebook profile...In a brief search of the site, I noticed you can get a $25 Restaurant.com eGift card for just 400 Swag Bucks. That’s a good deal. Or you can spend 450 Swag Bucks for an Amazon.com eGift card. That’s what I mean when I say points values vary widely! The FAQ page says Swag Store prices are set based on availability, cost-of-prize acquisition, shipping fees and the dollar value of Swag Bucks (which varies.)"
"If you don’t want to spend your rewards in their store, you can gamble them away on their Swagstakes. Swagstakes are where you use your Swag Bucks to enter prize draws to win various (raffles, such as an IPAD 2). For example, you can spend 20 Swag Bucks as your prize draw entry for a $2,500 Amazon.com gift card, or try your luck with using 1 Swag Buck to win 25 Swag Bucks...I’m not much of a gambler so I tend to save my Swagbucks up until I have 700 of them and then exchange them for $5 into my PayPal account. If you prefer an Amazon voucher you can redeem 849 Swagbucks for a £5 gift voucher at www.amazon.co.uk. Annoyingly, you can get a $5 gift voucher redeemable on Amazon.com for just 450 Swagbucks….but us UK residents are not eligible to request this reward, and we have to use more of our precious Swag Bucks to cash out via PayPal or Amazon UK."
"I am really enjoying Swagbucks & I’m so glad I signed up. I’ve been using it for almost a year and have earned enough points for $105 in Amazon gift cards. That averages out to approx $10 in Amazon per month, so I’m completely happy with that. It’s really going to come in handy this year for Christmas. I’ve earned the bulk of the points myself since I only had 1 referral that maxed out. I just search every day & participate in swag hunts. For the little bit of time that I put into it, I think it’s worth it. Especially since it’s free!"
