Swagbucks Helped Us Prepare for Baby #2

new decorations

Today’s Swagbucks success story is from Rachael:

With Baby #2 due in early June, we had to get quite a few items. We not only needed items for the new baby, but we needed to get my son into his big boy room.

We had gotten many of the “big” items through Christmas and baby showers, however there were quite a few decorations and small items that were wanted, but not necessarily needed. We decided the decorations would just have to wait until we could rack up enough rewards through Swagbucks and other rewards programs to afford them.

In 3 months, I have earned roughly $60 in Amazon giftcards through Swagbucks which put a dent in the “extras” for my son and baby girl on the way. I have been so pleased with how quickly and easily I was able to rack up on Swagbucks over the past few months with simple tasks:

1. Daily Poll: Though it only rewards 1 Swagbuck, it certainly helps in getting to my goals.

2. SwagbucksTV App: I try to watch roughly 50 points per day in videos on their mobile app. I sometimes miss this goal, but I try to make it a point to attain my goal as often as possible as this is where I get most of my points.

3. Bonus Points: Many times their mobile app will send notifications when there is bonus points available on Facebook, Twitter, or their blog. I love the notifications as it helps me keep up with new bonus points available. Although not a steady source of Swagbucks, these certainly help in filling in the gaps for days that I don’t hit my goal.

    I wonder if they’ve updated the TV app. I tried using it for a few months and it kept repeatedly crashing and not awarding points, so I deleted it. Anyone else have that problem and know if it’s working now?

    • Kim says:

      SBTV Mobile is running smoothely on my phone for up to 50 SB per day. EntertaiNOW app has not been loading videos on my phone for the past 2 months. EntertaiNOW daily max varies from 40-150 SB depending on the day. Both apps have frequent updates.

  • Becky says:

    Yes they have updated some and there is now a second app called entertaiNow you can get 90 swag a day doing this.

    • Jen says:

      I agree. I have an Android phone. SB TV works just fine but Entertainow won’t do anything. It’s very frustrating that it won’t work, but that’s how it goes, I guess.

    I have saved swagbucks for about four months by doing daily SBTV, Daily Poll, Daily Encrave and NOSO. I also make sure I check SW before I shop. I have earned enough to decorate both of our bathrooms with Kohls and Amazon GC’s and enough left over to redeem some for Home depot. I estimate about $200 total between bathroom stuff and gardening items. I didn’t spend a single dime of our own money! Now I am saving all of my sb’s until late November, should be a nice help around Christmas. 🙂

  • Kim says:

    Great job! I wish I could earn that many swagbucks, but I don’t have a smartphone, so no mobile apps for me. 🙁

  • CJ says:

    Great job! I have to ask though, how long does it take to get 50 swag bucks watching the videos?? I just spent at least 10 minutes, maybe more, and I only got 2 swag bucks! Doesn’t seem worth it to me. That’s like 2 cents in real dollars.

    • You should be able to play them while doing other things… it’s a great way to multi-task and earn a little $$ in the process!

    • Jen says:

      Look under the Home and Garden category. There are 10-second tips that you can save to your favorites. I only watch two of those over and over and it is pretty quick.
