Ok, I have given this a good 24hrs. I have messaged Swagbuck 3 times, and google play once. Paypal does not work and all comments of others go back as far as six months. I have gone onto the market trade and yes they are making money, no doubt, however money is not going into anyones pocket, who doenload the app. From a marketer. Please think twice before taking the Swagbuck app. You will not get paid anything. I have uninstalled!!! Please be careful!!!!!!!
Swagbucks Rocks! Love this app. Sometimes prefer to use the actual browser on a computer for more functionality, but this app allows for basic functions - earning and redeeming on the go. Have been a member for a couple of years now, and cashed out many times for gift cards and PayPal. As a hint, once a month you can cash out a $25 gift card at a discounted rate for quicker earnings! Just not PayPal. Took me a while to learn that :)
An easier way to take Swagbucks surveys on a tablet. Sure, you get disqualified from a lot of surveys, but that's the people conducting the surveys, not Swagbucks. Runs well enough. Only problem is the rewards page, which is only showing four gift cards, even though I know I qualify for a lot more if I want to trade my points for a reward, because I looked at my account through a browser, and it's a lot clearer on the actual website.
I only qualify for surveys from peanut lab which took me a while to figure there was another survey company to earn SB. The giftcards are not as fast as other companies. I am currently awaiting a gift card I ordered 3 days ago, Quick Thoughts I get them the same day. I purchased an item from Walmart but never received any SB for it, the same goes for apps I have downloaded. The only way I have been about to receive SB is with Peanut Labs surveys.
I coach people on how to make passive and at-home income. In my professional opinion, this app is not living up to its claims. I will give a higher review just as soon as I actually qualify for one of the surveys, AND when I get my points for my referral(s), AND when my swagcodes actually go through. THEN I will give a better rating. Until then, I will keep trying until I hit the minimum amount to cash out and then I will delete the app. This assumes I am actually able to cash out. I will admit that some of the videos are actually kind of helpful (home & garden, health & fitness, even movie previews are all surprisingly entertaining and informative.) Still not boosting the rating until I see changes.
Using Swagbucks online is better than using the app. Half of the time I will go to take a survey and will be unable to complete it because the app doesn't use an acceptable browser for the bot check . I've also run into other issues with the app. I am sometimes unable to scroll when I need to (things are chopped off on the right hand side of the screen). Videos that are required viewing for surveys will also fail to load most of the time.
