75 cents for 20 minutes of my time? Not a chance!

Can't have the same nickname!

Update: deleted the app for the reasons mentioned below, but kept getting countless emails. Unsubscribed from “All” notifications, but kept getting emails. Deleted the account and unsubscribed from “all” notifications again, but I still keep getting emails. Somehow, even after completely removing the app from my life, it is STILL wasting my time.

You earn “swag bucks” for each survey you do, but the term is misleading because one swag-buck is the equivalent of ONE PENNY. You can trade in your swag bucks for gift cards, with a $25 gift card costing 2500 swag bucks... On average a 17-20 minutes survey pays out 75 swag bucks (75 cents), which equates to $2.25 an hour, but according to countless reviews many of those surveys don’t pay out, so it’s probably closer to $1 an hour. If you have no job, no money, live in a developing country, and nothing else to do with your time, I suppose it’s worth it... But I have no idea why anyone would waste their on something like this. You’d be better off: searching for change in your couch cushions, picking up change on the street, wading through public fountains for coins, selling lemonade on a street corner, buying a metal detector and hanging out on a public beach, pulling out/collecting teeth and leaving them for the tooth fairy, etc...

Good app, some downfalls


It is possible to make a decent amount of money with this app, however, for every 20 surveys you start, you will probably only qualify for one. I’m not sure what these qualifications are, since it might tell you at the beginning you are eligible and then 20 minutes in, it will say “Not everyone can be a winner. Here’s 1 Swagbuck for trying”, and thus you’ve wasted a good amount of your time. It’s pretty hit or miss with the internet searches, as some reward you and some don’t. Purchases through sites do reward you a large amount of Swagbucks, but it may take up to THREE MONTHS for them to be credited to your account. And some gift cards that I have tried to redeem in store are not useable. The cashier will say the card has a zero balance, or the necessary PIN number they need is never sent to me. So the amount of time I’ve spent racking up points to get that gift card were for nothing. Walmart, Target, and JCP are the only stores where I have not had any issues so far. So all in all, this site does offer you money, but for every plus there seems to be a negative.

Love it!


I dropped the app down to 4 stars. While when I first tried it, I initially loved it. The only issue I have with the app is that I've missed out on multiple surveys because the app won't allow me to switch to horizontal. Some of the surveys I've tried to do has required me to turn my phone horizontal. If they could adapt the app to switch between vertical and horizontal for mobile phones, I'll give it 5 stars again. I love doing surveys for Swagbucks! The app is pretty convenient and reminds me about the site. I think there surveys are worth it and they will even give you points, even if you don't qualify for the survey. Also when you redeem it seems to come pretty quickly. I have tried a couple other survey sites in the past but this is definetly my favorite. It's not just surveys but you can earn a few extra bucks in other ways as well

Hi there! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your feedback with us. In regards to surveys, please know it is up to the survey company to make their surveys mobile-friendly but we are working with them in hopes to improve the mobile experience in this area. I'm very sorry for any inconvenience that may cause!
