Swagbucks is one of the most popular money making websites in the world. I personally used it several times for trial and liked the variety of ways to earn money from taking a survey to playing a game online. In this post, I will share the most effective ways of earning Swagbucks codes and SBs.
What are Swagbucks codes and SB?
Depending on what ways you use, Swagbucks will give you a code that can be transferred to SB points. SB points are the basic unit in Swagbucks. Every time you completed a task, the website pays you with SB points. When you accumulate a certain amount, you can exchange your points with a gift card.
Swagbucks has diverse options of gift cards including Amazon, David Jones, Dan Murphy’s, Paypal, and many more. The types of cards are big enough for you to use them as cash. Then, let’s find out how we can earn Swagbucks codes.
The easiest way of earning the codes is by letting them monitor your online search activities. I have some personal experiences in this way, and I found that it is quite easy and simple. All you need to do is installing their Chrome extension to your Chrome browser. Or, you can also download a Firefox extension. You can download the Chrome extension here.
Share your search activities
Once you download the extension, type your first search in “Search the web & earn”. Hit enter, then you will be redirected to their web search area. You can start browsing the Internet there.
The firm has not revealed the exact rules of when they give away a Swagbucks code. But, a basic rule is that the more you search, the higher changes of earning it. As you do your search, when you hit their criteria, the Chrome extension will alert you with a new Swagbucks code.
Keep an eye on their promo alerts
Another way of get Swagbucks codes is also by using the extension. But this time you don’t have to do any task. They will just let you know where you can find Swagbucks codes. According to their website, they will say something like, “Check Facebook!” or “Check Twitter”. Then you can go to their Facebook or Twitter account and check if you can find some code there.
Check the website
Also, you might come across a code in their Shop & Earn store page, in the Swagstakes menu, or on their Google+ page. This will be very random that I don’t recommend to use this option just to search for Swagbucks codes.
Change Code to SB
Now that you find Swagbucks code, you can change it to SBs. You don’t have to go to their website, but you can just use the extension. If you look at the captured image below, you will see the Swag Code menu. There, you can put the code and click Redeem Swag Code. Please remember the code is case sensitive.
Swagbucks code eventually should be changed to SB points before earning cash. So, why not just earning SBs straightaway? There are many ways to earn SB points. But what will be the most profitable way of earning it?
Swagbucks kindly lists the most popular (and profitable) ways to earn. If you check the list, it ranges from downloading and playing a mobile game to buy something using the link in the list. Among them, I believe that buying options will be the most rewarding. So, if you are going order UberEats or drive with Uber, try to use their link and earn SB points easily.
We have discovered ways of earning Swagbucks codes. So, now you can visit the website and apply what you’ve learned. But before you go, let me share some insights about Swagbucks. Some people may be doubting, “Ok, but is it really legit site?” or “Is it just another dodgy site?”. There is a good way to answer these questions.
How Customers Think About Swagbucks
When you see product introduction from a company, you will always hear great things about it. No company will reveal any weaknesses or defects of the product, obviously. So, as a consumer, it is wiser to doubt what they say and do your own research before making a final purchase decision. In this section, we will learn how actual users think about Swagbucks. How can we measure these? We can do this by using data analysis techniques called sentiment analysis.
You don’t have to be scared by the technical term. I did the technical part and you can just look at pretty graphs. In this section, I will show you two types of graphs – word cloud and customer sentiment chart. For the analysis, I’ve compiled more than 13,000 customer reviews from TrustPilot and conducted analysis to summarize them. I will show you the result in a word cloud and a customer sentiments chart. And, lastly, I will share a Swagbucks’ Google trend result that shows the level of interest from people.
Word cloud is one of the great and fun ways to understand customer sentiments toward a product or a service. In a word cloud, you can see specific words in different sizes. The larger it is, the more people used that word to describe the product. For this word cloud, I used the titles of the reviews, since people put the essence of their opinions in the title. The 13,000+ reviews allowed me to generate an interesting word cloud that let me reach a positive conclusion. Take a look!
Understanding the word cloud is easy. Just follow your eyes and see what you see. You will see that most of the big words are all positive. This means that customers have had a positive experience with the service. People used words like “love”, “great”, “easy”, “earn”, “good”, and more positive terms to describe this website.
In the word cloud, we were able to observe what descriptive words people used to talk about Swagbucks. As mentioned, the word cloud is based on the titles of customer reviews, but the sentiment analysis graph was generated by the contents of the reviews. In the sentiment analysis, we will see more specific types of feeling that people showed in their review. In the analysis, you can see 10 different sentiments such as positive, negative, trust, anticipation, joy, fear, sadness, anger, surprise, and disgust.
The technology behind the chart is straightforward. The analysis algorithm holds 10 different lists – each list containing words that are mapped to one of the 10 sentiments. When this algorithm runs, it checks and matches with one of the sentiments. When matched, it is counted as one and is categorized in one of the 10 sentiments. My analysis on the positive reviews appears as below.
The chart is also not difficult to understand. You can see that the positive sentiment is ranked number one. The first rank is followed by “negative”, “trust”, “sadness”, “anticipation” and “anger”. It does have some negative opinions, but overall, people expressed more positive sentiments than negative ones. So my customer review analysis told me that many people have a positive experience with Swagbucks.
As the final segment of analysis, let me share the trend of Swagbucks. I used Google Trend to check how frequently “swagbucks” is searched on Google over the past 5 years. Google Trend is a useful tool to measure the interest of people. The more frequently people search on Google, the more popular or trendy it is. The Google Trend result below (not visible on mobile phones) for the device below shows that people have shown consistent interest in this earning platform over the period. Note that this is a global trend.
In addition to this trend line, we can see which regions mostly searched on Swagbucks. Click the list icon at the right bottom corner. To see the state names, click the list icon at the right bottom corner. As you can see, the United States ranked number 1 followed by Puerto Rico, Canada, and United Kingdom.
Swagbucks is an interesting platform where you can earn cash and gift cards. The method of earning Swagbucks codes or SB points is quite straightforward. It only takes times to earn it. Check the Chrome extension and see how many codes you can earn. Plus, my customer review analysis using over 13,000 feedbacks proved that Swagbucks is a legit website that will actually bring money to you.
