If you have an android or apple smartphone, you can earn some extra cash with it when you aren’t using it. I am earning around $15 a month from running Swagbucks apps on my cheap $32 android smartphone.
What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a rewards site where you can watch videos, complete offers, or shop to earn swagbucks. The swagbucks you earn can be redeemed for gift cards or money through paypal. I personally prefer redeeming for money sent to my paypal, but I do have a soft spot for free pizza, which I probably go into too much detail in my book-long guide on how to use swagbucks.
6 Paid-to-Watch Swagbucks Apps and How to Use Them
Swagbucks has 11 or so mobile apps available to apple and android phones. These apps will reward you with swagbucks for playing videos on your phone. Advertisements will play between the videos, and the videos will play one after the other automatically. Sometimes you may need to close an advertisement to keep the videos playing, but for the most part it requires little interaction.
These are the video apps I tend to stick to:
- Swagbucks Watch
There is an earnings limit for each app, and once you hit it there will be a message saying that you’ve hit the limit. If you run the app long enough, you’ll see a message saying you qualified to earn a bonus, and then after that when you’ve earned all the bonus swagbucks you can, you’ll see the message that you’ve hit the limit. At that point you can open another Swagbucks app and start running it.
What works best for me right now is Swagbucks Watch and Sportly.tv. I use Swagbucks Watch first, and then when/if I hit the limit, I’ll start up Sportly.tv. On rare occasions I can manage to also hit the limit on Sportly.tv. If that happens I’ll run Lifestylz.tv, but I generally only manage to max out Swagbucks Watch in a day.
How to Earn Faster With Swagbucks Apps
The secret to hitting the limit quicker so you can earn more swagbucks in a day, is to favorite the shortest videos on the apps so that you they play repeatedly.
At the time this was written, the shortest videos on Swagbucks watch are the “10 second” tips series. On Sportly.tv it is the “Doug Williams III” joke video. When you find a short video in the channels section, tap and hold to add it to your favorites list, then go to your favorites and tap to play the video and it will play on repeat.
Sign Up for Swagbucks and Get Started
This is an easy way to earn extra money each month with your smartphone. To try this method yourself, the first thing you’ll need to do is sign up at Swagbucks. Right now you’ll get a $3 bonus in swagbucks for signing up through that link. After you sign up, then you can download a couple of the apps listed above and get one running and earning easy money for you.
