I downloaded the toolbar. I have used the search box when I wanted to look something up online. Am I missing a step in order to earn points? I click the links provided in the results but haven't seen anything in regards to points earned for what I searched.....I'm new to SB so I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Are you signed in to Swagbucks?

You won't get SB for every search...it's random hit or miss and it's never a set amount.  I get specific in my search, such as "easy centerpieces for Thanksgiving table".   I've found that sometimes I need to click through the results up to 5 pages before I've gotten a reward.

Yeah, the toolbar shows me signed in. So do you just click into the links provided, even if you've found what you were looking for? Just to find if it pays a reward? Just curious, thx for the tips :)

The links don't give you rewards.  Using the search in the SB toolbar will.

Nice! I get dubs most days as well. Swagbucks is actually pretty easy once you get a system going and finding what's right for you!

Quoting michiganmom116:

That's right!  I got 59 SB once last month.  WOW!  I can usually get dubs every day.

Quoting haileys_mommy06:

Don't forget you can search. I've gotten up to 33 points in one search!

Quoting michiganmom116:

I earn a LOT Of points everyday with Swagbucks. 

  • Install their toolbar on your browser for 1 point every day that you open your browser. 
  • Do the Daily Poll for another point. 
  • Follow the NOSO for 2 more points. 
  • Complete the brand activities listed on the SB homepage. 
  • Watch the SBTV videos (you only have to have them playing long enough to get the 10% on your progress bar, and you can have them playing in an open browser window all day while you're doing other things) for up to 150 points a day, 3 points for every time you fill the progress bar.
  • Do as many surveys as you can, and don't be discouraged if you are disqualified for 9 out of 10 of them.  The more surveys you take, the more you'll get to try.  Most of the surveys will show up from noon on, since SB is on Pacific time.
  • Try to reach the daily goal (on the homepage) every day (and it's possible even if you all you do is watch videos).  The bonus points awarded (usually on the 5th of the next month) are VERY helpful!
  • check out sbcodez.com frequently throughout the day for Swag codes that you can put in the little box on the SB homepage for more points.
