One of the most popular pages on this site is the Free Stuff page, so I know this post will be of interest to a lot of you! I’ve found another rewards site that can help pay for all of the Pogo goodies you love: like premium badges and albums and Mini items. Swagbucks.com is a web site where you can earn points called SB for completing tasks at their site and in turn you can exchange those for gift cards to different retailers and web sites. They currently offer a PayPal “gift card” reward, which directly deposits into your PayPal account. Since you can use your PayPal balance to purchase Gems at Pogo, that’s like getting your Pogo Gems for free!
Start Earning Easily
To get started, visit Swagbucks.com and either log in with Facebook or create an account.
Once you’re signed up, here are easy ways to get some SB to start:
• 32SB: fill out your profile and take a site tour. After this, check your email and confirm your email address.
• 32SB: fill out your “Survey Profiles” (hover over your name in the upper right corner, “My Settings”, “Survey Profiles” tab).
Activate your Daily Goal in the upper left of your Swagbucks home page. Reaching the first daily goal for 7, 14, 21, and 31 days in a row will award you bonus SB. It’s really, really easy to get the first goal of 30SB a day. Here are a few ways:
Easy ways to earn SB are the daily poll, entering Swagcodes (Swagbucks occasionally posts them to their blog, Facebook, etc), playing games, and watching videos. For playing games, check out Swagasaurus Run; it doesn’t matter what score you get so you can just lose right away and play again until you reach the daily maximum for that task, 10SB.
And, if you’ve got an iOS or Android device, the Swagbucks TV and Entertainow apps have videos you can watch or let run while you’ve got some downtime. You’ll earn 2SB for each 5 videos you watch (10 videos for Entertainow), up to 36SB a day per app. Some of the videos are as short as 10 seconds. Android users can also earn SB using the Moviecl.ps, Sportl.tv, Indymusic.tv, and Lifestylz.tv apps.
Check out your Swagbucks home page regularly for new things you can do to earn SB and you’ll be on your way to earning PayPal gift cards to purchase Gems. Like I’ve said about the other rewards programs, it’s a marathon not a sprint. However, with as many tasks as Swagbucks offers, this marathon might just seem a little easier than the others.
I’ve just ordered another $25 PayPal gift card this week, and I think it’s a great program. The only drawbacks I’ve found: the PayPal deposits can take up to 10 business days to arrive, and earning SB for the daily goal can be addictive!
Sign up for Swagbucks and try a few of the activities listed above. Share in a comment how many SB you earned, and if you figured out any tricks that will help others. Thanks!
