swagbucks vs zoombucks

which do you prefer? do you use both?
I recently signed up for swagbucks, its slow going...but have earned 3 $5 GCs...free money is free money no matter how little or how slow it comes

So should I try out zoombucks too?

I've used Zoombucks, and it's pretty similar. I get most of my bucks from surveys - time consuming, but worth it

Re: swagbucks vs zoombucks

I just cashed out another $10 gc at Zoombucks. The trick is--to see them as 2 very different (yet rewarding) programs. Swagbucks you're guaranteed at least one win per day. Zoombucks, I win "bucks" maybe once every 3 days. You can make a lot doing surveys with them though.. so it's kind of a toss up. Both can be slow going--but you may as well do both at the same time, kwim?

Re: swagbucks vs zoombucks

I love SB and earn points all the time for searching (for everything!). I signed up for ZB but haven't done much with it. I think it is heavy on surveys and those just aren't my thing.

Re: swagbucks vs zoombucks

My warning is to make a separate email for zoombucks and be very wary of offers from there in particular. I made a fake email for surveys etc. I've done from there and that email box was getting something like 400 emails a day after a couple weeks, and DH and I both had to run virus removal from something with their toolbar.

I use zoombucks for special offers, and go on daily for the Zdaily. I love that they have more selection of giftcards

Re: swagbucks vs zoombucks

I've found that Zoombucks is WAY more time consuming. The biggest benefit for Zoombucks is when people sign up under you, you get 10% of their earnings for life. Swagbucks gives you points earned by searching up to 1000. I signed up to zoombucks a really long time ago and have just now gotten up to 1600 zoombucks (the first time you have to have 2000 to redeem for anything). So I'm going to get up to 2000 then not use it anymore.
