I am so excited! This year we are going to earn over $500.00 for our Disney funds with Swagbucks. That might seem like a huge undertaking at this moment. I promise you it is way easier than you think. We will start with a goal of only $25.00 for January and gradually increase it to $100.00 for December. If you can earn more go for it! I wanted to make our yearly challenge easily achievable to everyone. Today we are going to launch our in depth Swagbucks series. Think of this as Swagbucks 101!
We will be going slow and taking our time. If you are new to Swagbucks or even more experienced with Swagbucks this course is for you. Every day I am going to teach you a small bite size morsel of information to help you succeed with Swagbucks. The most important thing is to have realistic expectations, a time slot daily to work on it, and a consistent routine. Without those things you are setting your self up for failure. I am going to give you my tips and tricks that allow me to earn with Swagbucks.
*SB – Just is an abbreviation for Swagbucks
*Each SB is equivalent to $0.01.
*It takes 2,500 SB to equal a $25.00 gift card. Except your first gift card of the month. That is discounted to only 2,200 SB for a $25.00. Each month you are given this special one time use offer.
Tips to help you succeed.
My #1 tip for Swagbucks (and for saving money in general) is to have a consistent routine/schedule in place. Without a plan you are planning to fail. How I am able to be consistent on SB is in the mornings before the kids wake up I spend 30 minutes on Swagbucks. That does mean I have to get up 30 minutes earlier than I normally would. In the beginning it was hard. Now its part of my routine. After lunch I spend another 15 – 30 minutes. If I am running errands that day the after lunch time gets skipped. Normally my errands keep me out thru lunch. Throughout the day I will randomly check on surveys to see if I have any high paying ones. For me high paying is 100 SB or more per 10 minutes of my time. I also check in on the daily how to earn thread in the SavEars to see if there is any hot deals.
You need to figure out how much time you have to devote to SB. The amount you earn will depend greatly on the amount of time you give to SB daily. There is not a right or wrong amount of time. It is all about how much time you can find in your day to give to SB. I average about an hour a day on SB. I earn on average $100.00 a month. Some months I don’t even earn $50.00. Other months like December I earned over $300.00. A lot of what you earn will also depend on your experience level. Just like with anything the more you do something the better you will get at it. The other factor is the time of the year. During certain times of the year the offers and surveys will be high paying and plentiful. During those times I do spend more time on SB. For example December I was averaging about an hour and half a day.
Build into your routine days off. Everyone needs a break. I take the weekends off. That does mean I miss out on the daily goal bonus amount month after month. There are things you can do ahead of time to still earn on days you want to take off. We will discuss that later in detail. Just know you need some sort of break or you will get burnt out.
Don’t get discouraged if you only earn a small amount in the first few weeks. Just keep being consistent and working towards your goal. I promise you will be able to make up whatever you are missing towards your goal later on.
