What do you like best?

- Getting Swagbucks reward points for doing a variety of daily routine activities like online shopping, playing games, watching videos, taking surveys, etc.

- Points can be redeemed for cash or gift cards.

- Easy to use interface.

- Browsers extension (e.g. SwagButton for google chrome) is available and can be added and used for easy access. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- Frequent disqualification in many surveys.

- Points awarded are less for the amount of time and work required for a survey.

- Long waiting time is required to cash out the Swagbucks points. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Swagbucks can be used using different platforms, so a user can use a particular platform to use Swagbucks as per his/her convenience. For example, if a user does online shopping frequently then they can use it on their laptops, or even better they can add the browser extension as it offers an easy to use interface. If a person spends a lot of time on social networking sites, then the app can be installed on the phone and can be used to perform different activities that are available on the go to earn Swagbucks and then convert them into some cash later. Swagbucks offers a platform where though slowly but cash can be earned by doing simple activities daily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Swagbucks helps to earn some extra cash for doing daily routine activities. Moreover, whenever there is some spare time I take some surveys or do some other activity from a variety of activities offered which helps to make the best usage of the time along with some entertainment.

What do you like best?

Swagbucks does a great job of promoting various websites and providing deals from promotions. It is also a good source of cash back / credit back on purchases through various websites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Swagbucks requires a LOT of time and attention to receive any points that are actually worthwhile. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before spending the time on Swagbucks, understand that it is a VERY long and lengthy process if you are using the website with just the intention to make money. The surveys are insanely time consuming, and even if you 'qualify' for one, best case scenario you receive $1 (100 points) for 30 minutes spent filling it out. The surveys are the best way to receive points, but there is a specific target consumer that they are looking for, and I mean SPECIFIC. For example, either a 45 year old woman who works in advertising and has 3 children, or a minority who watches at least 5 different news stations that they can write reviews on.

The other only option to get points "quickly" without having to purchase items from other websites is to watch the advertisement playlists that they offer. It will automatically cycle through and credit your points at the end. However, this is another excruciating process. I'd say best bet is 3 points (3 cents) for 5-15 minutes of ads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially I began using Swagbucks with the intent to earn points that I could redeem for gift cards such as Amazon. As a college student, I needed any opportunity possible to earn money or gift cards that could be used for everyday items. With my gift cards to Amazon I was able to buy things for my apartment, clothes, and textbooks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Swagbucks is great for earning a bit of extra cash on the side. By answering surveys on the subway, or just shopping online, you can earn a lot points in which you can redeem for gift cards. Swagbucks isn't the fastest the way to earn money, but it definitely can generate at least 20$ a month which comes in pretty handy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike how commonly my surveys are rejected even though I spent a good amount of time answering each question. The rate at which you earn points because of these rejects slow down significantly and it is almost not worth it to waste your time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Swagbucks is not a very fast way of making money, so don't get discouraged if you cannot earn as much. However, it can definitely pile up in the long run, the question is, "do you really want to spend your time like this?" Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall, I think Swagbucks is average in terms of the rate in which you earn money, but for anybody who is looking to earn some extra cash, it is definitely worth a try. There are so many different ways to earn, anybody can find their own way of making money on Swagbucks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how addictive the game is in the sense that, instead of watching TV or something in my spare time I can earn more money by watching youtube videos or doing a few other things on SB. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is very little money to be made. I also think there is a lot of luck involved in it, for example, you have to be a certain type of person to qualify for a survey, and if you don't qualify you can't earn. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It can be okay if you would be planning on TV, but i'm going to start a side hustle instead of this soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

You actually do earn money from this site and using it as your main search engine. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The amount you earn however is very small each time. Also, it does take some time getting used to using it as your search bar/engine rather than your normal search engine and/or websites that you may use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are that I am doing my normal internet searching or buying like I would anyways, but getting a little something extra for doing so with Swagbucks. The survey tool is easy to use and easy to share the survey with other users and/or those outside of the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Swagbucks has a button that is located on my Google Chrome toolbar. It sends me notifications about deals, new surveys, and ways to participate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Helping others out with their surveys while earning gift cards to give away to my employees. Taking surveys is an easy way to gain rewards. Better system all in one than using some other applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The reward options are usually for gift cards/brands that I already like, frequent or would potentially use. A good variety of reward options are offered in comparison to other point-collection programs. I also like how there are possibilities of earning Swag Bucks via survey taking/visiting sites and non-purchase activities. The popups at target sites to remind you of possible Swag Bucks at purchase is also useful when earning rewards points is not on your mind at the point of sale. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The data collection and anti-popup software that Swagbucs comes equipped with makes it difficult for me to navigate my day to day web surfing without constantly being reminded to turn off my adblockers. I am also concerned what kind of data is being collected by Swagbucks from my browser. Also, Swagbucks seems primarily oriented to desktop use and not exactly geared towards smartphone use like other apps such as Drop are streamlined to do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is nothing to lose by joining, I recommend starting out as a user first before signing on as a vendor. Compare the ease of use with other apps such as Honey, Drop and Rakuten. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nowadays everyone is online shopping from the comfort and ease of their own homes. Swagbucks is not unique in its offering of reward points for online shopping at certain sites. I have saved a decent amount of money over the years via earning Swagbucks credits through qualifying purchases and surveys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I do not like that barrier to entry. We often need to pay high amounts for this data and users of SwagBucks do not fill out our surveys without large incentives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

SwagBucks has helped make out customers happy to give feedback. Our conversion rates for other survey software is very low but this improved it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very easy to use interface and fun things to do on the website. It makes it really easy to test market segments and do market research.

It is a great way to interact with new and old customers, and it also helps reach potential buyers. I've seen that when offering a discount or coupon code, our sales also increase with buyers that purchased from us for the first time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't work very well on mobile devices. It takes too long to see results of your efforts and campaigns.

It can sometimes be difficult to reach the right audience or the people who would fit my buyer persona. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Using Swagbucks will help you make informed decisions regarding your business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gather more data that will result in better decision making for my company. It is very easy to deploy a survey or list of questions and get feedback from real users. We use that data to inform new products to launch into the market or to get feedback from current and old users from products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Swagbucks is free to use so you can't complain that you are not getting any value from it. There are many ways to earn points so you do not have to just do surveys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Most of the time you will get through a survey and find out that you do not qualify. I can go days without qualifying for a survey and I find surveys to be the easiest way to earn points. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

None - I just use it to earn some extra gift cards. The benefit would be that it is free to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As soon as you finish the registration process the program gives you a $10 bonus something that was not in another surveys program that I used, giving you the opportunity to make a first purchase in your store. The use is quite simple and straightforward, it offers several options to redeem your prizes among which are different giftcards from retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, Starbucks and Target. You have available the option to watch videos of different categories this is particularly good for users who love to see entertaining advertisements while making money watching them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not available for a long list of countries, only a small group is available which makes not all users in the world can use it, it only supports users within the territory of the US and some countries of the European continent. There are times when you have to wait a long time to receive payment, this means that although they are clamoring to deliver instant payments this is not 100% correct. Although it offers many options to accumulate SB's you have to invest a lot of effort and time in reaching the minimum amount to redeem them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is an application that really rewards its users for taking their time to watch videos, fill surveys and perform web searches in a didactic and simple way making sure that anyone can do it given that it is very intuitive. Since it allows teenagers to make extra money using their simple tasks Swagbucks removes the age barrier to earning money online without having the need to possess technical knowledge of an activity or have a profession, so it's a great opportunity for any user to use that app and be rewarded for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Normally I like to do surveys in my free time as it is an activity that helps me to solve stress issues and stay focused, by using Swagbucks I can forget about my work and concerns and focus on responding to the surveys that interest me in the most doing this it generates a sense of tranquility and reward when i see finished the process and be rewarded for that, plus it is one of the applications in which I find it easier to win the rewards without being scammed in the process.

What do you like best?

For many, they use Swagbucks to earn extra money by making several surveys every day and being rewarded for that, but this site is not just doing surveys and that's it, it's more than that. The truth, the most valuable thing of this online prizing site is their cash back promotions. I make all my purchases online by that means, since you get Swagbucks points (SB) for each purchase, in stores like Amazon, Walmart, target, home depot, etc. I can also subscribe to certain services like Hulu through this site and get points in return. Through the daily surveys you can make points and redeem them for a wide variety of prizes, from gift cards to prepaid visa cards and paypal cash.

Being a sales staff you can observe this site as to do a market study. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The surveys are not for everyone, and it is not that I speak badly of this site, which has already earned its reputation by far, but the truth is that if you expect to earn a lot of money making accounts all day, well you are wrong. Speaking of a market study, surveys are difficult to classify, and can be an impediment to capture public opinion in general. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those who are looking to be paid for daily surveys every day, this is a reliable and secure page. It's a great tool for customer advocacy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this page I earn a few bucks but in the end it is an extra money that does not hurt, I have also been able to buy things on this site and thanks to its promotion of money back, I have been able to make unexpected purchases. Through the survey I have realized what the big marketing companies are looking for and which demography is the one to classify in certain surveys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The good thing about this site is that with patience and dedication you can earn extra money, and there are several ways to earn it, there are numerous programs to earn SB points that, in the long journey, are necessary to withdraw your prizes. You can be able to do daily surveys, daily pool, watch videos, play games, do some web search in order to earn SB points. Swagbucks has a wide variety of prizes such as gift cards, and reload of PayPal balance. In addition, you can buy products inside Swagbucks with discounts and earn points through purchases made. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although having many offers, accumulating the necessary points to be able to withdraw is a difficult task to do. Surveys are made endless and incidentally, they are very repetitive. I have found surveys that in the end, when I finish them, do not redirect to the main page so they do not credit me the points. There are many surveys that are not worth the time you invest in them. For example, a survey that takes 1 hour to do and is worth 50 SB (Swagbucks points). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Through the diversity of offers that Swagbucks have, you can get extra money for doing tasks in the tranquility of your home or your office, if you want to spend time at work productively. You can relax because you can make points watching videos, such as news and shows of interest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every day I go to the Swagbucks page to earn points and thus, on the weekend, withdraw my prize. I know that it isn't a lot of cash but it serves to buy some toys for my son. This has been good for buying online occasionally, though. I also feel helpful to the product developers by doing those surveys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
