WHO IT IS FOR:
This is a program for just about anyone. Sign up for free and start accumulating Swag bucks.
There is not a ton of training available as the main site is pretty straight forward, however, a “new” member could get a bit confused with all the options and buttons to select to figure out what to do, there is a walk-thru training when a member joins but it does not cover everything. There is also a mobile app which has fewer features than the normal site but still gives users a mobile option
There is a fairly robust community for support but mostly through forums on the main site or the Facebook page. Customer support is available through email.
Free to sign up and participate regularly, however constant add and promotion bombardments for “more swag bucks buy this” or whatever the offer is.
Swagbucks is a good and honest program as far as I can tell. With opportunities to make some extra money on the side mainly in the form of gifts cards. There are about 9 or 10 different ways to gain “Swagbucks” that can accumulate over time until you have enough to redeem for real rewards. The searching online feature is nice since we all do that regularly, why not get credit for it?. They also have a Swagbucks Rewards program with several options to promote via a third party provider as well as simply getting others to join Swagbucks.
I see the value of Swagbucks as far as a way to make some side money, but in reality, that’s all it is. Side money, it takes quite a while to really accumulate a substantial amount. But for a few gift cards here and there it’s fine. But as an “online business option” I don’t see it. The income potential is slow at best and fairly limited as opposed to a website or several websites where the sky is the limit financially.
