Swagbucks – slow progression with a few frustrations
I’ve been using Swagbucks now for a few days and I can see some of the drawbacks already. Sometimes videos that are required to watch in a playlist don’t load, and when that happens you don’t earn the Swagbucks for watching any of the videos in the list. You can earn on surveys but some surveys advertise that you’ll earn a large amount but what they don’t tell you is you only earn if you qualify and fit into the specific demographic they are looking to poll. If you don’t meet there criteria you won’t earn the 100 Swagbucks instead you only earn 1-5 for answering 15-20min worth of questions.
It seems like a little bait and switch which I kind of expected going in. I think I will stick with it because I already have some time devoted and I want to see that $25 Amazon or PayPal gift card. Filling out the surveys are pretty straightforward. You do have to make sure that you read all of the questions because some of them are tricky just to make sure that you are paying attention. The videos are nice because when they do load they actually go on an automatic loop so you can play them in the background you aren’t even required to listen to the audio that goes with them.
So far I have about 100 swag bucks earned and I’ve logged on about three times so that’s not that bad. I did invite someone who I know has signed up but haven’t seen any of the added benefits of the Swagbucks that they have earned. Their referral service may require a little work I’m sure that if I send an email and bring it to their attention it will go unanswered. I hope that working with the swag bucks website I will actually be able to earn at least $25 for the month. If I can get that accomplished I’ll think that it was worth it.
