I was new to Swagbucks until I received one email from them one day. In their introduction email they mentioned the name of a blog (moneysavingexpert) that I have admired since long.
Generally I do not respond to such marketing emails. But a dominant blog-name prompted me to send a reply saying…”tell me more about Swagbucks”.
Swagbucks Indian is one website that can make you money online. I reside in India and I make passive income out of Swagbucks. You can do it too. One can gradually build a decent pocket money out of the income of Swagbucks.
The money paid by Swagbucks is not in form of cash but in form of SB Points. Approximately 1SB = 0.5INR.
People can redeem their SB Points in form of Gift Cards. In India one can redeem SB for gift cards of Amazon, Flipkart, Jabong, Myntra, Freecharge, Big Bazaar, Fast Track, Lifestyle, PayPal etc in Indian Rupees (INR).
I generally redeem all my Swagbucks Points (SB) via Freecharge. It helps me to recharge my DTH, Mobile Phone and pay other bills.
Joining Swagbucks is free. One can sign-up on Swagbucks in less than 5 minutes. One has to just enter a valid email id and password to complete the sign-up process.
After confirming the email address, one is ready to go.
Soon after the email address is confirmed, Swagbucks immediately credits 20SB to ones account. One can earn nearly 60SB in the first hour itself.
A real life example of what I earn each month through Swagbucks is shown in below Chart. The SB points shown below are those points that I have earned in 12+ months.
Though my earnings may not look very encouraging, but there are people who make decent pocket money out of Swagbucks. If one works judiciously for at least 1 hour each day on Swagbucks, making more money is easy.
How many websites we know who can earn us authentic money each online? As per my experience this list will be very-very small. As I have some experience in making money online through my blog, I can say that making even Rs.100 per month (online), through websites which is not a sham, is a rare find.
Swagbucks is not a sham. It really pays you money in form of gift cards.

How I earn money online from Swagbucks?
I answer surveys and earn money online. Just by sharing ones opinion one can get free gift cards.
Swagbucks generate thousands of personalized surveys from top brands and agencies every day. One can earn 40-300 SB per completed survey.
Larger will be the survey’s length more will be the SB points earning potential. Swagbucks also provide 1 SB for every survey disqualification or over capacity. Like this hey can credit up to 5 SB per day.
I use their “Discover” menu in their left side bar and find activities that reward better. This way I enjoy spending time online and also earn money.
There are plenty of options from a rich network of partners and stores. One can sign up for trial offers and get large amounts of SB. One can also earn free or very cheap deals, especially if one is willing to input a credit card number.
Just remember to set a diary reminder to decide whether to keep the offer or cancel before the trial expires. A couple days ago, I downloaded and installed an Andoid app and earned 6 SB for the same.
I am a blogger and I do heavy internet search for my contents. Earlier I used to Google for all my search queries. These days I use Swagbucks for online search. The search results are almost equivalent to that of Google.
This way I Earn SB while searching the internet. Swagbucks user Yahoo search engine so its very reliable. Swagbucks Search awards varying amounts of SB randomly.
Its true that not every search query can earn one SB, but time and again SB do get credited to ones account. So every time one does online search for anything they stand a chance to earn 4-30 SB points.
I have already kept my default search engine as Swagbucks (Yahoo). This way I can earn SB without even thinking about it.
Ways one can make money online using swagbucks:
1) Shop Online: One can earn cash back while shopping online. Do your shop online using Amazon etc? If yes, they you must check the offers that Swagbucks is offering for shopping online on Amazon. Generally they offer 3% Cash Back if you shop on Amazon through Swagbucks. We shop anyways on Amazon, right? So why not use Swagbucks to buy things on Amazon and get a additional 3% cash back that we would have lost if we had went directly on Amazon. Other online stores which are available on Swagbucks are T-Mobile, TripAdvisor, Dell, Expedia, Hotels.com, Barnes & Nobel etc.
2) Answer Surveys: Answering surveys are easy. Every day one can find at least 3-4 relevant surveys. It is true that you will not end up making money for all the surveys, but if it clicks, you will earn handsomely. Just now I have checked my account, and there was a Survey ready to pay 168SB.
3) Search the web: Swagbucks has their own Search Engine powered by Yahoo. One can choose to make the swagbucks search engine as their default in the web browse. This way, you can continue searching the internet and also earn SB points. Though you will not earn SB with every search, but time and again Swagbucks makes you fell lucks and pays you 1SB for your frequent searches.
4) Watch Videos: International users in USA etc can earn SB Points by watching videos on their Swagbucks App. But in India this facility is not available. I have even checked the availability of their App on iOS and Android, but in India, their App is not Available.
