Secrets to swagbucks?

I don't seem to be able to earn very many, and I really want to! I want to get enough to get a few more diaper covers through paypal. I never get picked for surveys, I have nothing to trade, and I rarely win on searches... any tips?

Re: Secrets to swagbucks?

Referrals help, so put you link in your siggy!

Also, set up a "fake" email address and do some special offers. They send you a lot lot lot of spam so REALLY don't use your real email addy, but set up a special one just for that.

I make a rule to not ever spend money to get swagbucks and I never download anything, IMO this protects me from credit card issues if one of the offers is sketch and computer issues if they download junk but all the other offers are fair game- as long as they don't require me to break out my credit card or download.

Re: Secrets to swagbucks?

I didn't get a lot at first either. But now that My DH and I always use its starting to add up. We use it for everything. Even when I come to diaperswappers I search in the swagbar. I got two amazon$5 gc last month.

ETA-Last month was my first month.

I don't use my bookmarks anymore. Any site I go to I search through swagbucks and I win at least 2-3 searches every single day. You also get 1 swagbuck a day for doing the daily poll, for having the toolbar, for viewing the special offers and for checking to see if there are surveys. Fridays are also big swag days so I do extra searching on that day.

Re: Secrets to swagbucks?

I agree with everyone here

Put a link to your referral in your siggy. Also, if you have time, tasks are a good way to get Swagbucks and I have never had a problem getting paid for them. You can do them while watching TV or something. Keep checking for surveys several times a day. If you have a cell phone, you can get text messages when there is a code showing in the Swidget. Don't use your bookmarks, only use the Swagbucks toolbar to search. Don't oversearch...that seems to affect people negatively, just search the way you normally would.

Here's the link to the blog I created with all sorts of tips. I think it's okay to post this since you asked for secrets...if not I'll remove it. http://swagbucksforfree.blogspot.com/

And just have fun!

I do this too, however, do you put in your REAL physical address? That makes me leery so I typically avoid those and just do the ones that require email addy only...though those are very few and far between.

I don't normally do them if they require a phone number or physical address, however, I do have a PO Box and if they allow that I'll do it.

No, I make up an address . Usually the numbers/street name you put in doesn't matter they just want your zip code/city

Ok, I did that twice before and I was never awarded the Swagbucks, so I assumed they "figured me out" and was too afraid to try it again in fear that they'd suspend me or something....
