How to I earned 300+ SB in two days

A few weeks ago I shared a post which said, “All throughout September you can earn big bonuses at Swagbucks, a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already…”

I know it is easy to gloss over such posts as these, assuming it is not legitimate, or requires you to purchase something, or give up  your rights to your first born child.  I used to think the same thing.  And you are right about some sites.  I know. I have tried them.

After having been a member of Swagbucks for years, I know it is a legitimate site. I also know that, while you will not get rich from this site, it is a good way to earn a bit of extra money each month without having to leave home.

Over the course of me being a member of their site I have earned approximately $1,223.19.  Some months I have earned $50, while other times I do not do anything for months on end.  That is one thing I love about Swagbucks, they have something for me to do no matter how much, or little, time I have to spend.

Going back to the post I initially mentioned, Swagbucks is currently offering a 300 SB bonus, equivalent to $3, for new members who earn 300 SB by the end of the month.  If you are new to the site, this might seem like a daunting task.

With that in mind, I wanted to show you how I was able to earn 300 SB in two days time.  If I had been able to take a bit longer the first day, I could have completed it all then.  However, life still must go on and people in my household do like to be feed during the day.

Here’s how I was able to earn 300+ SB over a two day period without downloading something on my computer, purchasing anything, or even doing my normal online shopping:

  1. I checked my Swagbucks Inbox for deals – completed a travel search and earned 5 SB, checked out hotels in a specific city and earned 1 SB
  2. Clicked on the banner at the top.  Watched the nCrave videos for 1 SB.
  3. Went to my To-Do List (found on the left side of the home page).  Daily Discovery and Crave were already completed.  Daily Poll – 1 SB, Daily Watch – 2 SB, Deal of the Day – 1 SB, unsuccessfully attempted 2 surveys – 2 SB, completed survey – 30 SB
  4. Bonus for completeing 6 out of 8 items on To-Do List – 1 SB
  5. Bonus for completing To-Do List – 1 SB
  6. August Spin-n-Win double survey earning – 30 SB
  7. Completed a Discover Activity (watched an ad for 30 seconds) – 2 SB
  8. SuperRewards (Discover) activity – 3 SB
  9. Watched an additional 3 video series – 3 SB
  10. Disqualified from 3 surveys – 3 SB
  11. Compeleted survey – 54 SB
  12. Completed 1 AdGate Media (Discover) activity – 2 SB
  13. Completed 6 Peanut Lab (Discover) activities – 7 SB
  14. Watched 8 nCrave video series for 8 SB
  15. Disqualified from 5 Peanut Lab (Discover) surveys – 5 SB
  16. Search – 6 SB
  17. August Spin-n-Win double search earning – 6 SB
  18. Play – 10 SB
  19. nCrave slideshow – 3 SB
  20. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  21. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  22. nCrave video slideshow – 5 SB
  23. nCrave video slideshow – 7 SB
  24. nCrave activity – 2 SB
  25. nCrave activity – 5 SB

End of Day 1.  Earned 202 SB.

Some of these activities were new to me.  Even after all these years, I am finding new ways of earning SB, as Swagbucks has changed over time.  Some of the new or different activities I like and do often.  Others, well, let’s just say that there were a few new ones this time which I will not be doing again.

Day 2
  1. nCrave video slideshow – 7 SB
  2. nCrave video slideshow – 4 SB
  3. Disqualified from survey – 1 SB
  4. Completed survey – 58 SB
  5. Deal of the Day – 1 SB
  6. Daily Poll – 1 SB
  7. Bonus for completing 6 out of 8 items on my To-Do List – 1 SB
  8. Disqualified from 5 surveys – 5 SB
  9. 6 AdGate Media (Discover) slideshows – 6 SB
  10. Watch video slideshow – 1 SB
  11. Bonus for completing 8 out of 8 items on my To-Do List – 1 SB
  12. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 20 SB
  13. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 10 SB
  14. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 10 SB
  15. Peanut Lab (Discover) activity – 9 SB

End of Day 2.  Earned 135 SB

I decided to stick with activities I knew well, things which would not take me as long to complete.  The Peanut Lab activities were also ones I had to submit a ticket for due to them not crediting after completion.

If I had not had the benefit of double earnings from the previous month’s Swago promotion, I could have completed a few more survey, or looked for other Discover activities to complete.

Total at the end of two days = 337 SB

Part of the earnings during Day 1 were from bonuses earned while participating in August’s Swago promotion.  By earning spins on the Spin Wheel I received bonuses such as “Double Survey Earnings” or “Double Search Earnings”.  These particular bonuses may not count toward your 300 SB earnings needed to receive the 300 SB bonus for being a new member, but they still count toward your total earned toward a gift card.

With this in mind, during the September Swago promotion, which is currently taking place, there are several activities I have completed, not because they will result in a higher earning pattern but because they will earn me opportunities to spin the wheel. Due to the difference in this month’s Swago promotion, the celebration of Swagbucks giving away 2,000,000 SB, the Spin & Win Wheel will not be available to use until 9AM PT/12PM ET on Tuesday, September 19th and will end at 9AM PT/12PM ET on Thursday, September 21st.
