  1. Dear Josh,

    Thanks for the thorough review on Swagbucks. I want to give you a thumps up. You have addressed all the details I need to know. I’ve tried out many other programs online and failed to make any money with any of them. So, I always read reviews about products to gain more knowledge before buying it. Your review is very helpful I will come back to your website to learn more information. Thanks again.

    Your Friend,

    • We’re glad to be of help to you!

    • Thanks. Swagbucks is probably my favorite get-paid-to site because of the multiple ways you can make money and the redemption options. I’ve redeemed my points for cash and Amazon gift cards.

  2. They have horrible customer service. They are unresponsive when issues arise. For example, I cashed in some SB for a gift card, and after 2 weeks of not getting anything in the mail, I contacted support 2 times with no luck of receiving a response. It’s been 2 months now. I’ve received no reply from Swagbucks and no gift card.

    • I’m sorry you are not having luck getting through to Swagbucks. It appears that there is more than one way to contact them, though. If you haven’t already tried this, you could contact them through their Facebook page. I wish you luck.

      • I need help. I got a new email address and I am a member of Starbucks. I am trying to give them my new email address. They sent a message to my old email address to make sure it is me. I do not have that email address any more and I can not get on there any more. Please help me. How do I give them my new email? Thank you.

        • Well, this post is about Swagbucks, not Starbucks. However, if you have access to a computer, log-in through their main website. You can update you profile from there and choose settings. This should allow you to update your email.

  3. I love to make money.

    • I agree! Isn’t it just the best feeling? Thanks for commenting, and good luck in your money making efforts! 🙂

  4. Does Swagbucks sell or share your information (i.e. your email address)? Also, is a phone number required to sign up?

    • At the bottom of their main page are some links that tell more about Swagbucks as well as their privacy policies and terms of use. These are the best places to find the answers to these questions as well as others you may have. However, if it doesn’t answer all of your questions, you can contact them through the customer support link. I hope that helps. 🙂

  5. I have been a member of Swagbucks for over five years. My favorite way to earn is by shopping. I also use search, games, and videos. I love the extra income I get every three months or so. $25 gift cards are a great to buy special things, food, or help with hotel costs. I need to curb myself from unnecessary spending because I want points very much! If I am busy I may not be able to do any Swagbucks for a month or two, but then I can jump back in when I have free time again. I am a huge fan of Swagbucks!

    • I’m glad you like Swagbucks so much! It can be fun to use. 🙂

  6. I had joined Googles Opinions Rewards several years ago. It was great. I got several surveys a week sometimes. Some for $.25, and some for up to $.3.00. I used to buy wallpapers, ect. for my phone and anything I could with my free credits. I actually had up to $40.00 at one point. Then the surveys just stopped. I contacted them but got no response. I updated the app, but still nothing. All my earned money…poof!! My opinion of of Google Opinions is to stay away!

    • I’m sorry you had a bad time with them and didn’t get a response. Perhaps you should give Swagbucks a try. Thanks for your comments.

  7. I have completed the JULY survey which required my financial entries for the month. I was promised 1800 SW for this survey. Upon completion, I submitted the survey but was never awarded the points. It also appears that requests originating from Customer support are not reaching the help desk. Using yahoo mail, I was able to contact SW but they referenced a different issue that was already resolved. It also appears the survey offer has now been closed, even though it is advertised as open on the website. Please advise on how I may be FAIRLY compensated. Thank you.

    • I’m sorry you had such a poor experience! I would continue to contact customer service until you get the result you want!

  8. I’ve been using Swagbucks for the last 6 years for fun money, I make about $75 a month and cash out at the $25 paypal pay out. Some times of the year I can make $100 to $125 a month, but that’s usually toward the end of the year when their sponsors will be negotiating for the next year. Also, I haven’t had any negative experience with customer service. I have had some negative experiences with surveys. Occasionally you will get to the end of the survey and get disqualified. My advice is to always write down the survey number and take screen caps of the page before you hit submit. If you are disqualified you can take your case to Support. I usually prevail and am awarded my SB’s.
