I do one or two searches on their site a day sometimes enter swagcodes that I find on slickdeals. I make between five and ten dollars a month which is worth it to me when I'm spending 30 seconds a day... I like to get "extras" on amazon with my bucks..,

mama bear- how did you get swagbucks to work with chrome? Dh tried and couldn't get the toolbar working so we basically stopped using swagbucks since chrome works faster on our computer

the toolbar doesn't work on chrome. only the search engine.
by the toolbar there's a way to edit the site that google chrome uses for your searches. This is what you can change.

I used to get atleast 1 point daily just for having the toolbar. Now that I have chrome I automatically make 30 bucks less per month.
I don't do any video watching,.... just on searches (that I'm doing anyways) and sometimes I'll go to the blog and see if there's anything there. then I'll do the poll as well. I used to have a swidget on facebook, but it stopped working.

Today I got 21 for a search.

If anyone plans to sign up, I'm looking for friends to sign up under me. You can PM me and I'll give you the link.

when you go to 'toolbar' it will explain how to override google as the default search engine. You cant download the toolbar, but you can use your search bar on top of your page to get swagbucks. that's what I've been doing.

You need to be very involved, have a lot of patience, and use their search engine as well as take their polls, surveys etc. I earned $25 in amazon gift cards.

However, lately I stopped using it as I have no patience. I prefer google search and was just using swagbucks for searches where the results were popular and not so specific.

You can also sign up for free trials - say Netflix, earns 900 swagbucks, equal to $10 worth of amazon gift cards. You can cancel free trials within 30 days, but not within the first three days.

I did take advantage of some offers. For example, my dh needed business cards. there was an offer for 500 SB from Vistaprint and it cost $10 (it was like getting a $5 rebate). Also did netflix offer...

GPS, at this point I only use it as my search engine. I still get 1 or 2 gift cards a month. it's free, why not?

I have gotten at least $100 worth of amazon gift cards from swagbucks, and its not my only search engine I use.
When I open my homepage I have two tabs open, google and swagbucks and for things that I dont have a store name for I use google as swagbucks isnt the greatest search engine but when you need something and have a web address or store name you may as well earn some bucks.

Does this not work in Israel? I do an enormous amount of web searches for my business marketing, but haven't gotten any "wins" yet Scratching Head

Do you still get points? I used it for 2 weeks and never got any points from searching. And I have to use searches as part of my job, so I do a whole bunch. Sad

Not to mention their Terms of Service include being RESIDENT in the United States!


They let me join just not for surveys. I live in Israel too.
