How to get started with Swagbucks

Start earning with Swagbucks

Now that you’ve registered, it’s time to start earning.  First, download the apps listed below.  I have listed some of the shorter videos on each app.  Favorite 1 or 2 of each of these videos, then run the videos from your Favorites list.  They will finish faster!  To do this, just look for the specific video, then slide from right to left ’til you see the red heart appear.

The video lists on the apps constantly change, so you may not see some of these on your app if SB has removed it.  Remember, you don’t have to add them all on your “FAVORITES” list.  You can choose only 1 or 2 videos if you want.  The only thing you need to be aware of is that, you should only use one device at a time.  Swagbucks has been very strict  lately so just follow their terms to avoid deactivation of your account.

One suggestion on this is try to find some old android(4.0 or higher)  or apple phones or tablets to use with these apps.  Your friends and family might have some that they are not using.  You can also find some great deals online like ebay or Amazon.  Some stores often have promotions too.  You don’t need phone with service.  As long as it has wifi, you are good to go.

Ok, so streaming some videos on these apps can give u 200 SB each day if you do them all.  That alone is $14/week or at least $56/month.  But take note, that’s not the only way to earn.  There are so many great offers listed on their site as well.  Just keep exploring and have fun!

Perk TV Compatible Devices

PerkTV requires iOS 6+, Android 4.0+, or Windows Phone 8+ to operate such as:

  • iPhones 3GS and up
  • iPad Touches 4th Gen and up
  • iPad 2 and up
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich and up)
  • Kindle Fire HD and up
  • Amazon Fire TV

A lot of Perk TV members recommend ZTE Concord II, LG FUEL, and Samsung Rush.  These are cheaper phones and yet works good with Perk!


Successful Device List

(I got this list from a forum, posted by ubiquitous)
*To be fair some of the older successful devices may require some additional actions to get PerkTV working. Namely for Android based devices rooting and loading a custom ROM unto it. If these are things you are not familiar with, outside of your comfort level, or to put it plainly – if unwilling to read up over on XDA (or the like) then you should stick with the golden rule of the system requirements listed above, namely a minimum of Android 4.0+.

Perk TV

What is Perk?

Perk or Perk TV is another great opportunity to earn cash or gift cards online.  Perk TV is an app that pays you to stream video advertisements on your phone/tablet.  I will be straightforward, you will not earn a full-time income from this.  We are not talking about replacing your full-time job here.  Instead, this is another way to bring extra income to your family.  Perk TV is currently one of the best opportunities to make money using your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android or Windows Phone.  You can check the compatible devices here.  When you first look at the app, you may not realize how lucrative it can be. After all, you do earn less than a penny per video. However, running it almost all day on low-bandwidth can result in you earning up to $7-$8 per week. Multiply that by the amount of devices you have and you can start to realize the potential of the app.

Sign up at and start earning!

How Do You Earn Points?

Once you set up your account, all you have to do download the Perk TV app and watch some videos to start earning. You will get 4 points for every 2 videos watched in the U.S (UK, Canada & Australia get 2 points for every 2 videos watched while International gets 4 points for every 20 videos watched).  There are also many ways to earn points with Perk.  You can search the web, shop online, complete offers, and do surveys.  I also love their app called Perk Pop Quiz… it’s fun playing game while earning points!

How to maximize your earnings:

     The easiest and best way to earn points is through their app – Perk TV.  I don’t suggest using your personal smartphone full-time on this one though.  What I did was, I bought some cheap Android phones and use it just for Perk.  You can find good deals at Ebay or Amazon.  Even stores like Target, Walmart, Walgreens and many more, offer some promotions which you can get the phones for cheap.   I got one of my phones at Target when they had it on sale for $19.99(originally $59.99) plus I also got a free $15 Gift Card as part of their promotion!  That’s pretty much paying only $5 for the phone.  You can earn it back with Perk in less than a week!!!  You definitely have to watch out for these great offers.  One other way to get phones for cheap is through Ebates.  The company offers rebates for shopping online using their site.  You can learn more about Ebates here.  I also got 2 phones using Ebates.  The phone was on sale for $14.99 and I got $17.50 rebate.  So that makes it FREE after the rebate!!!  Isn’t that awesome?  I’m sure there will be more deals coming so just continue to search.

The best thing about the app is it can continuously stream video advertisements with few interactions. Basically, you can earn extra pocket cash doing minimal work. Since the company allows up to 5 devices running at the same time per account, it accumulates points fast.  Therefore I recommend having 5 phones in order for you to maximize your earnings.  Here are some great deals on phones.

 You should also note that even if there is a limit of 5 devices per account, more than one Perk account per household is permitted.  So it means that you, your husband/wife, and your kids ages 13 and older, or anybody who lives in the same household are allowed to have an account each.  That’s more earning opportunity there!

How much can I earn?

If you run Perk TV on your phones/tablets almost all day, you can expect to earn around $1 or more per day in the United States. These rates will vary based on your device, country, and internet but $1  per device is what you should expect.  So if you have 5 devices, then it’s about $5 a day or $35 a week.  Nice to have that extra cash or gift cards in your pocket per week, huh?  That’s just for Perk TV app alone…Remember there are other earning opportunities that they offer.

What Rewards Are Available?

Perk has a variety of gift cards that you can choose from.  The most popular ones are Amazon, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Starbucks, Home Depot, GameStop, and much more. The redemption amounts vary from $5 to $100. They also have PayPal but we do not recommend this option since they cost 9000 points for $5 compared to the other gift cards that cost 5000 points for $5.  You don’t really want to lose all those points.

They also have some physical items such as Kindle Fire or Google Nexus 7 for 220000 points. However, we recommend that you cash out at $5-$10 increments like any other app coz you’ll never know what will happen tomorrow.  The company might only last for a few years, a few months, a few weeks or worse, it’s gonna be gone tomorrow.  So better safe than sorry!

Cashing out

Cashing out usually takes 1-2 days. When you redeem, you will be asked to verify your phone number. You are able to use your Google Voice number if needed. You will get a text with a code that you need to input into the app.

Rewards are processed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the cutoffs being Sunday 11:59 PM (Monday), Tuesday 11:59 PM (Wednesday) and Thursday 11:59 PM (Friday).  If you do not make that window or redeem any other time during the week your rewards will be processed the following rewards day. When you redeem for a reward, you will receive a email with the subject: “Your Perk is on its Way” telling you when you should expect your reward.


  • Use real information when signing up in case they choose to verify your ID.
  • Download App Cache Cleaner and set it to clear every 6 minutes.  This will help decrease load times and make your device run smoothly.
  • Don’t use VPN or proxies since they can result in your account being banned.
  • Enable the low bandwidth option so that videos play faster and so that you use less data. In terms of data, you may use around 90mb/hour/device on this option.
  • When watching videos, start with APP TRAILERS as they are shorter.  When it switches to MOVIE TRAILERS, just go back and start the APP TRAILERS again.
  • Turn your brightness all the way down to save battery.
  • Ad blocking is not allowed.


One last and final tip:  Support Perk TV!  It’s is a great app and we want it to last as long as possible. Try clicking learn more info on ads from time to time or downloading apps to support them! This is how they earn money!

So what are you waiting for?  Better grab this opportunity while it’s still hot!

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Ebates is a company that provides their members the best coupons and deals online and gives cash back when you click through the links of the stores listed on their site.  The company is an affiliate to many online stores.   It doesn’t cost anything to sign up.  All you need to do is go to, search for the store you want, make the purchase, and you’re done!  So let’s just put it this way, Ebates is just another opportunity for you to earn some extra cash while shopping for the things you would normally shop for.  So if you like shopping online, why not get paid to do it, right?

Ebates is a legitimate company that is very open about how they are able to offer cash back for shopping online.  The company gets a commission from stores for referring shoppers to their websites, and they share that commission with you.

Here is how it works:

1. Sign up for a free account.  The site is free to join and always free to use.  You sign up and you’ll find the latest coupons, deals and cash back offers from your favorite stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Macy’s, Target, Home Depot, and a bunch more!

2. Search for the store where you want to shop.  The stores track this link and pay Ebates a referral commission based on a percentage of your purchase (Percentage commission varies by store)

3. Get cash back.  Ebates shares the commission with you, depositing a percentage of your purchase into your account.  They pay you in cash, not points or miles, and you don’t need to fill out any rebate forms.

4. Receive check in the mail or PayPal payment.  Every 3 months, Ebates sends out payments for purchases posted during the previous quarter.  But if you’ve earned less than $5.01 cash back, they will carry over your money to the next check.You can choose to get paid by check, Paypal or donations to charity/organizations/family member.

See the payout schedule below:

Purchases Posted Between Big Fat Check Sent
Jan 1-Mar 31 May 15
Apr 1-June 30 Aug 15
July 1-Sept 30 Nov 15
Oct 1-Dec 31 Feb 15

So that’s it!  It’s free to use, there’s no rebate forms to fill out, and you do not have to give any personal information besides an email address for your PayPal payment or physical address if you opt to get checks in the mail.

Sometimes they also offer a $10 gift certificate or $5 cash bonus for signing up.  You can get this once you make your first $25 purchase within 90 days.  That’s another extra there!

If you love shopping online, there’s really no reason not to use Ebates.  You shop as your normally do, except you can get some money back each time you shop.  You can also find coupon codes to stack on the savings.  An extra 6%, 3%, or even 1% might not seem like much, but when you shop online a lot, it really adds up quickly.
