What’s the deal with Swagbucks?

After doing a couple surveys for between 50 and 100 SB it says on top: ” Not every survey es a winner(???) But here are 5 SB for trying”????? Am I doing surveys or playing the lottery here???

Immediately uninstalled the app after that.

  1. The only thing I use Swagbucks for is their discover offers. It’s not really worth it to do their surveys. Just beware that doing the discover offers can sometimes be a little iffy.

    If you do the discover offers always use the email associated with your swagbucks account when you sign up and document the crap out of everything — take screenshots of the offer/confirmation/shipping label and product received and always read the fine print of the offer. You’ll probably have to send in tickets for swagbucks you were supposed to get but haven’t received.

    1. and afterward, hope the people reading the tickets do their job properly even with the proof. that’s been a lot of threads over on /r/SwagBucks that’s been a bit more consistently negative. meaning people are getting shafted on risky offers. i’ve always been hands off on anything that reaches too many third parties, except for the shop>in-store offers where you just upload a grocery receipt.

      1. Agreed. I’ve been lucky so far, but I’m just waiting for them to be like “Oops, can’t help you, oh well!”

  2. Never do SB surveys unless they are guranteed Sbucks. I have NEVER gotten all the way through one with over $1,000 earned on the platform.

  3. The cupon print option is the best as you can print them as a PDF and get $.50 a day with little to no effort. The surveys are unreliable, I’ve only completed a few, mostly low value ones when I’m super bored.

  4. Swagbucks seems like the worst site. Too many issues constantly, mostly revolving around actually being credited for the work you do. I haven’t used the site in several months and they are starting to bombard me with “We Miss You” and “Guaranteed Surveys” (Ha!) and other crap which I am ignoring.

  5. Swagbucks small surveys usually suck, but I reload the page frequently to look for the high-paying ones. Last month, for instance, I received $50 for watching three episodes of some television show. Or, I take part in a focus group. Recently, one of the focus groups was already full by the time that I arrived. I still received $7.50 for the effort.

    It’s a gamble, for sure, but it’s worth it for me.

  6. It’s annoying for sure and highly depends on your demographics I think. I can usually complete 1-3 surveys a day but I’m only in my second month on the site plus I’m asian, female, and have a doctorate. I still have days where I’ll attempt 20 something surveys and disqualify for all of them which sucks. I do try and only attempt the ones that give 5 swagbucks per minute so like 20 minutes for 100 swagbucks so I don’t waste my time too badly.

  7. In my opinion, the surveys are just not worth the gamble. Wasting your time. I do not do them; guess that is why I have not cashed out yet. Am very close though.

  8. Swagbucks can be challenging, but trust me, it’s legit. Most high-paid surveys are difficult to qualify for, so aim for the 15-30 SB surveys. I’ve personally done several 29 SB surveys that usually say 6 minutes the past two days, those are fabulous. What you are experiencing is normal, it happens to every user every day. You just have to learn the system, what they are looking for. Keep trying, don’t give up 🙂
