I sent this info to another CMom-er a few days ago:


First, you want to make this as easy for you as possible.  Under the Tools menu at the top of the SB screen, click on Toolbar and install it.  Just starting your browser with that toolbar will give you 1 point a day, no effort on your part at all.

Every morning, I start my browser and head to SB main page.  I will go under Earn (at the top of the page) and do the daily poll (1 SB), the NOSO (2 SB), and then play 10 games of my choice for 10 points (2 usually awarded every other game that I submit my score.)  That's already 14 points for the day!

Surveys are the best way to earn money, and you'll start by filling out your profiles (earning more points.)  Once you start catching surveys, remember that at least 9 out of 10 surveys will be ones for which you won't qualify.  They can be frustrating, but the ones that you DO qualify and finish are worth the points.  I keep a browser page open to Surveys and refresh it every 15 minutes that I'm at the computer.

You'll also earn points by searching using the search window in the SB toolbar.  Points are awarded at random, but it's great when you get them!  You'll usually only be awarded once every few hours, but I've gotten as many as 3 searches awarded in one day.  The values for those SB varies GREATLY.  One of those today was for 55 SB.  I've had some as low as 6 SB.  They don't always appear on the first page of search results, either. 

There are SB Codes issued randomly.  I use sbcodez.com to keep an eye on codes.  They put the codes out and make it easy to use...but SB doesn't "like" the site because it takes the work out of finding the codes, so we don't mention it around SB official pages.  LOL  When you get a code, you copy it then go to the SB home page and paste it at the top right of the page, then click "gimme!".  You'll get points!  Monday is a code extravaganza day with 70 points being awarded through codes, so keep a close eye on that sbcodez.com page!

SBTV:  Very easy way to earn SB!  I use the pull-down tab on the SB toolbar, then just keep the videos running.  You'll only need to view each video for as long as it takes for the SB meter to gain another 10%, usually around 40 seconds per video.  For every 10 videos, you'll get 3 points...and there's a daily max of 150 points on SBTV.  If you have mobile (tablet or smartphone), there's a free app that you can download to allow you run videos on that device for as long as it takes to run through 125 videos a day (maximum points 50 per day.)  NOW:  I'm not sure if the 150 is a total combined between PC viewing and mobile device viewing, but that's still 150 points!

If you look below the "Gimme" Code bar on SB home page, you'll see a Daily Meter and a goal that's set for you every day.  If you can reach that number of points every day, you'll get bonus points at the beginning of the next month!  That goal is easily attained even if you can't get any surveys that day.

Sometimes the homepage will have brand activities to complete, marked on "cards" with an " Earn" button.  Just follow the activity, usually viewing a video or interacting with a "game", and you'll get more points.

At the top of the SB home page, the bar will also have an envelope icon.  If a number in a red circle appears next to that, you've got mail!  Most of the Swag mail pertains to additional ways to earn points, so they're worth checking out every day.

Explore the site!  It's easy to spend a lot of time there, yes.  I usually wake up a couple of hours before the kids, and I manage to reach my daily goal before they get up, then I keep an eye on SBTV, surveys, and codes as I am able throughout the day to add more points for that day.

If you can get people to sign up under you (referrals), you'll earn as they earn.

Wow I had no idea there were so many ways to earn sb. I've been thinking about trying it but wasn't sure if it was worth the effort.

I got like 3 amazon gift cards since I signed up last year, I've been slacking a lot, but now with the app it's so much easier. Use the toolbar and do random searches every couple of searches you get 7-10-12 sw.
Do the daily poll and you can also sign up for Netflix etc through them and get a bunch of sb
