It's not too late to start earning a little extra summer spending money with Swagbucks! And I want to show you how EASY it is to use Swagbucks to earn $25 in gift cards each month...

But first, for those of you that are new, Swagbucks is a rewards site where you get points called “Swag Bucks” for things like searching, watching videos and discovering deals. Then you can redeem those points for gift cards to places like Amazon, PayPal and Starbucks. I like to save up my Swag Bucks for Amazon gift cards to help lower the cost of my monthly Subscribe & Save order, but I do splurge on a Starbucks gift card occasionally!

Swagbucks discounts your first $25 gift card of the month to 2,200 SB -- that’s like getting $25 for $3 less! Here's an easy plan that will earn you those 2,200 SB in no time at all.

1) Knock out the quick stuff -- all of these activities can be found on the left-hand side of the homepage (1-2 mins a day):

  • Answer the Daily Poll everyday - also available on the SB mobile app, so you can earn your daily SB wherever you are: 30 SB
  • Do the NOSO everyday - Browse through No Obligation Special Offers for 2 SB everyday: 60 SB
  • Get your daily SwagButton SB - our popular browser add-on gives you the ability to earn SB from anywhere on the web. It also alerts you to Swag Codes AND you get 1 SB each day just for having it installed and active: 30 SB (Bonus: if you don’t have it yet, you get a one-time bonus of 50 SB for downloading the SwagButton!)
  • Do the Daily Crave - discover new content and websites to earn 1 SB everyday: 30 SB

2) Search online to earn SB everyday (no extra time needed!):

  • Use the Swagbucks Search engine - People who use Swagbucks search to find what they want online can earn 10 SB per day! Plus, members who make Swagbucks the default search engine on their browser typically earn even more: 300 SB

3) Earn BIG SB payouts (5 min - 20+ min depending on survey opportunities available):

  • Take the Daily Survey every weekday - SB amounts vary from survey to survey, but it’s very possible to earn about 35 SB per weekday: 700 SB
  • SBTV app on Android (all countries) & iOS (US only) - earn a maximum of 36 SB per day on this app: 1,080 SB

Whether you're catching the latest blockbuster, enjoying a weekend road trip, or stocking up for your next outdoor BBQ, Swagbucks can help. It doesn't end there, though. Keep going and you can save for the holidays, back to school, or just a rainy day. If you're already on Swagbucks, share your own tips for earning Swag Bucks and saving up for summer in the comments!

Going to the movies is one of our favorite family rainy day activities in the summer. Whether you prefer the biggest blockbusters or the sweetest romantic comedy, Swagbucks can get you into the movies for FREE!

Swagbucks is a rewards site that gives you points called “Swag Bucks” for things like searching, watching videos & browsing articles. You redeem those Swag Bucks for gift cards to places like Amazon, PayPal -- and yes, even to the movies. I like to save up my Swag Bucks for Amazon gift cards to help lower the cost of my monthly Subscribe & Save order, but I splurge on a Starbucks gift card occasionally!

Here’s how Swagbucks can help you can turn watching videos online into your watching movies in the theater for free: Earning 1,500 SB gets you enough for a $15 movie gift card from AMC or Regal Cinema!

Whether you’re on the go, at home, or stuck at a desk, use these tips to earn your $15 movie gift card in just 1 week:

  • SBTV mobile on Android & iOS: Earn up to 36 SB per day watching everything from food videos & news to Hulu clips & music videos - 252 SB
  • Moviecli.ps app on Android & iOS: Get 18 SB per day watching the latest movie trailers - 126 SB
  • EntertaiNOW app on Android & iOS (US only): You can also earn another 18 SB per day checking out news on movies and TV shows, behind-the-scenes interviews and celebrity gossip - 126 SB
  • SBTV on Desktop: Watch a little bit of everything, including Hulu clips & music videos, but with a higher earning cap of 150 SB per day - 1,050 SB

When you have a specific SB goal (like a $15 AMC or Regal Cinema gift card) and a plan of action, you’ll get gift cards faster and be able to check out the newest action-comedy or Oscar-nominated drama without spending extra money. There are even more ways to earn SB online, so take a look around and see what works best for you. You don’t have to wait until the next blockbuster comes out to start saving up with Swagbucks!
