That is over $600.00 just from Swagbucks alone! Emma wrote in to tell me thank you for teaching her about Swagbucks. She just started Swagbucks in mid October. Her story was so impressive I wanted to share it with all of you.
I started Swagbucks really out of desperation. Here it was already October with Christmas right around the corner and I only had $100.00 to purchase gifts for all 3 kids plus my nieces. I have a Christmas account set up at my local credit union. I add $10.00 a month to it. Then whatever bonus money my husband gets. Unfortunately for us my husband was laid off in May of this year. That meant no bonus money to add. I was able to keep contributing the $10.00 a month seeing as that comes out of my checks.
My husband has since found employment. But due to living off of unemployment, my small checks (I work part time), and our savings for 4 months we really can’t use any of his checks for Christmas. I had seen Kristin post about Swagbucks frequently but I thought I don’t have time for that. With 3 little ones and a part time job my hands are full. I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I figured at least I would get a few cheap meals out of it. My first offer I ever did was Home Chef sign up and earn 2,500 swagbucks. When the Swagbucks arrived in my account instantly I was hooked.
After that I started following along with the daily post in the Savears group of ways to earn Swagbucks. That is very helpful especially on days surveys didn’t want to credit. I try and get at least my blue goal every day. Besides that I just do as much as I can. I have done quite a few offers for things that I would of loved to try but it was just not in my budget. Such as the Homechef offer, Club W, Lootcrate, Geekbox, Hulu, ABC Mouse, and many others. While these offers do cost I don’t take the money out of my regular budget. I use my Paypal account to cash out from Ibotta, Savingstar, and sometimes Swagbucks if I’m running low on cash in that account. Then I use that money I earned to pay for the offers. Its like I recycle the money over and over. Another thing I do is mark on my calendar a few days before I have to cancel whatever it is so that way I have a reminder to cancel so I don’t get charged an additional month at full price.
I also check my surveys frequently any higher paying ones I will attempt. I have gotten into 2 survey panels since signing up with Swagbucks. So far I have earned $75.00 from one and $45.00 from another. I also have an old phone running SBTV until I max out my daily earnings. I also start up nCrave’s while cleaning the house and watch/listen to those while doing chores. I don’t spend more than an hour tops working on Swagbucks. Some days are phenomenal while other I barely get to my blue goal.
I really think you have to do Swagbucks daily to get the most out of it. It’s not one of those things you can do once a week and earn big from it and its not always easy but in the end I think its well worth it. I know not every month will be this great. But I feel very confident that I can at least earn $100.oo a month. Which makes me ecstatic!
