  • Great for what it is.

    Before I got this app, I accused it of being a scam because I doubted that a free money app could afford to give away this much. But I checked my Paypal after redeeming some gift cards and I see that I actually got paid. For a free money app, this is actually very generous. It pays you to do a variety of things, such as playing games, watching videos, answering surveys, etc. I find that answering surveys is the quickest way to make money since you get at least 1 cent for almost every survey you take and you get a few nickels if you actually complete the survey. With these, I am able to earn a few dollars a day. I would not recommend watching the videos though because you would have to wait a long time, sometimes at least 15 minutes, just to get a cent or 2. I was also unable to get paid for the games and offers yet so I do not know how well these work. Obviously though, do not expect to get rich off of this app or even be able to get minimum wage. No free money app will pay you that much. If you want a decent source of income, you have to get a job. This app should only be used as a way to get a slight boost to your current income or to get some pocket money if you have no way to get a job right now.
  • Great App but Lacking Support

    By Stellar_Rainbow
    Edit: My activity center has been updated with what seems to be a rectification to the problem. I appreciate the attempt to solve the problem so I am raising my review. I still think that customer service needs some work, but this is the only issue I have had with Swagbucks, so I appreciate at least some semblance of a solution being reached. Original: Let me start by saying that I love Swagbucks! I have recommended them to friends for years to earn extra spending money. Despite this, I have to leave a one star review. This all started when I opened a Chime checking account through Swagbucks. I was going to use a friend’s referral and get $75, but I saw Swagbucks’ offer and decided to use it instead. I opened the account and got 2 direct deposits from my employer within the allotted timeframe. The problem is that nothing ever showed up in my activity feed. I have contacted customer support multiple times and have not received even an automated response. I am deeply saddened by Swagbucks lack of care for their users. I would love to continue to use Swagbucks, but after this scam I do not think I can trust them.
  • Not worth it

    By Adamtiburon
    Does the app pay? Yes. But there’s too much time involved, along with the tediousness of dealing with surveys that screen you out. When taking surveys in this app, I usually get screened out shortly after answering a couple questions in each. I get that this can happen every once in a while, but in this app it’s overwhelmingly reoccurring. Sometimes surveys will take me to the very end and then Swagbucks won’t credit me the full amount originally promised. The survey time algorithm needs work too. There’s just much better options out there for taking surveys. To give you an idea, I’ve put about 7 hours into this app doing surveys and have made $12. My opportunity cost would have been working at my job for those hours and earning $105 so it’s really not a good investment of your time. I mean the thing is, is that it works, but it’s too much of a hassle really given there’s other options out there (I won’t disclose here) for taking surveys for cash. And yes there are other features in this app, but unless you shop at stores don’t even bother (referring to cash back). Watching the videos and doing discover are both wastes of time. 16 videos for a penny and discover consistently has issues where I can’t access the content or it doesn’t credit me.

    CONS: Swagbucks is ok. Just ok. It’s not a great way to make money at all, so definitely DO NOT try and make it a full time job. I’ve made 4 bucks in a week, but that’s because I’ve spent almost 2 hours a day on it. If you use it as a search engine instead of safari or google, you could be making about a dollar a day. I haven’t tried it the search yet, but I’ve heard that it’s not so good quality. Surveys are also not on the good side. Swagbucks doesn’t make most of the surveys. Most of the surveys tell you that you don’t qualify. When you do get a survey going, or is almost always much longer than it said that it was going to be. Some surveys ask you for year and month of birth and race, and some go as far as to ask you EXACT date of birth, full name, and yearly income... Sometimes with these surveys I feel like I’m taking the CENSUS!!! PROS: Swagbucks isn’t always nightmare though. There is a feature that I like called referring. If you make a referral and the person you referred uses your link, you receive 10% of that person’s money for life. If you own a social media account with a decently large number of followers, you should post your referral link there. If you successfully made like 100 referrals, you could be making like an extra 6 dollars an hour! Nice right?
  • Not for me

    By shine4362
    I'm giving this app 3 stars because I don't want to discourage anyone from at least trying it for themselves... but it's simply not for me. I don't want to sound paranoid but the first survey was all about asking my income, my profession, my race.. etc. They also asked if they could track my location with the option only to be tracked while using the app.. or all the time. My choice was the first one but I keep receiving a pop up message saying I'm being tracked all the time regardless of my choices and would I like to go to settings to change this. Well of course I would because it wasn't my choice to begin with! I think I'm just old school and I don't like the idea of someone using my info as a method of saving money.. or getting me to spend it! I feel the same way about social media, if I want my friends and family to know what I had for dinner then I will call and tell them! I feel no need at this point to announce my life (or my dinner choices..LoL) to a bunch of complete strangers... but if these things don't bother you then you might actually like this app and others just like it.. in which case you should give it a try. As for myself, I will be deleting for now.
  • There needs to be clearer guidelines on being DQ’d from surveys

    By Abc all star
    Overall, I like this app more than other survey apps I’ve tried. But Swagbucks has the same issue that the rest of them do, and that is allowing surveys to disqualify you from participation after answering page after page of relevant information and entering in all of your demographic information. I’ve had plenty of times where I feel like I’m almost finished with a survey, only to be disqualified. Let’s say a survey says that it should take 15 minutes to complete, and after 10 minutes of answering questions you get booted out; that’s when I feel taken advantage of. The good surveys will DQ you after only a few questions at the very beginning. The bad ones will ask you 20 questions about your knowledge on a subject and how you feel about 10 different people/brands, get all of your demographics, and then DQ you. It’s very frustrating, and typically leads me to close the app.
  • I mean, it does what is says it does.

    By DatFlippingPanda04
    Although I knew this app was safe, I wasn’t expecting much rewarding. Swagbucks is an app that does in fact give you a digital currency that can be exchanged for real money and gift cards, but it costs more time than anything. Most surveys only give you 1-3 Swagbucks, which is about the equivalent of 1-3 cents, and the bigger paying surveys ask a lot of personal questions and take like half an hour to do. I thought I could do it for a little pocket money, but I’d much rather spend my time doing something else. As for magic receipts, if you want to grind up Swagbucks throughout the month scanning receipts for specific items and get maybe a ten dollar gift card, go right ahead. Sometimes you can download a game and complete some tedious goal for a lot of Swagbucks, but I deleted the game I got after it became grueling to progress. And I wasn’t about to spend money on the game to make money on the game. Like I said before it absolutely does what it says, but it requires a lot of time investment. Sincerely, a bored teenager.
  • I can only access my account via email

    By francisca1529
    I tried logging into my account via the app but it kept saying invalid credentials. I didn’t think much of it and clicked on the forgot password link. When I was done resetting my password it took me to my account. I then logged out and tried to use my new password to enter my account but then again I got the same response “invalid credentials”. I thought weird maybe I typed it in wrong and tried a couple more times before hitting the reset password link again. When I got access to my account again via email. I then click on account so I could verify that I had all the right information which I did. So I figured maybe the app is just experiencing some issues and went to google chrome like they suggest and same thing “invalid credentials.” I reported my issue to customer service and it was simply dismissed. Then I decided to try and make a different account and when I was done creating it and tried to log in again I got another invalid credentials pop up. This is ridiculous on another level. I have had this account since 2014. I’m just not impressed with its customer service.
  • Pretty good

    By Shy-Steamer
    Swagbucks is a fun and easy way to earn a little extra pocket cash, and with their PayPal payout option, you don’t have to transfer your earnings to a gift card you may not use. The key to making the most of this app is to answer the Daily Poll everyday, submit pictures of every shopping receipt you get from even the simplest things as filling up your gas tank, or buying a few groceries. You can also watch videos and discover content for a few Swagbucks, but this can take quite a while. Swago (their version of Bingo) is a fun way to earn extra Swagbucks too. And don’t forget about playing free games (to make it worth it, you will want to avoid in app purchases) and also their Swagbucks Live trivia game question events they hold on the Swagbucks Live app. It all adds up. I’m sure people can make a living off of this app alone, but I personally have not figured that out yet. As of right now, it just helps put a little extra cash in my pocket. 👌

    I like how you are able to always find something to do on the app. You have sweepstakes, videos, surverys, fun Codes, and you can redeem your points in more than one place. It DOES take time!! So do it when you have some awkward in between time or when you are bored and the points will add up before you know it. The only disappointment in the app is that a lot of the surveys will boot you out of them and you don’t get the opportunity to even take the survey. I honestly don’t mind spending the time on the surveys, but I have to get into one to be able to take it. Another thing about the surveys is that you could be half way through and then be disqualified for it, BUT it will give you a decent amount of points. For example let’s say the survey offers 60 points, you could have done some of your survey already then get booted out but still receive 20 points.
