Swagbucks and Inbox Dollars: Part One

I have tried both of them for some time now and I have yet to get to a point where I can cash them out. Granted I haven’t been as active on them all the time. It’s very time consuming for little payout. Especially since I fall into the category of people that always gets weeded out of the surveys. The best parts though are the watching the videos because it’s quick and easy. They are sometimes entertaining.

Swagbucks videos are pretty cool, they are in a playlist with a theme. You watch the playlist get 1-4sb for it. Some playlists take hours and some take minutes. You can find a subject you’re interested in to watch or branch out and watch other subjects. The mobile app will auto play through the playlists. You can earn up to 500sb a day from unique videos.

InboxDollars you get 1 or 2 cents for each video. I have noticed a lot of loading errors with their videos though. So that is a little disappointing.

Daily To Do Lists

Swagbucks has a daily To Do list, and once you complete it you get bonus sb. You just click on the link and it either takes you to a page that they have predetermined for the day or it is a link to the general category, like videos, or the “discover” section.

InboxDollars has a list when you first sign up, though I haven’t seen any sort of “Daily List” since that first week. I did notice recently that they have added a daily poll question.


Swagbucks has a daily poll that you get 1sb for. I find them entertaining, they usually ask questions like “What pillow do you use?” and “Which original Ghostbuster is your favorite?” I have only taken a handful of surveys with swagbucks because I end up screening out of most of them. So to me I don’t want to waste my time when I only get a small amount for that a day.

InboxDollars surveys, I usually don’t qualify for many. They do the Peanut Labs ones too and you can do 15 of them a day. The surveys pay 15 or 25 cents, sometimes even $1.50.


Swagbucks has a swagcode option. They put different codes on social media, or adds. You can enter them to win swagbucks, the most I have ever seen from that is 4, though they release a new swagcode 3 or 4 times a day on my phone. Sometimes more than that. There are also options to download apps onto your phone for sb and to play games on the site.

The Swagbutton is really cool, it is a quick link to the site where you can enter swagcodes without leaving the site you are on. You can also check out the shop section, the watch section, and search.

InboxDollars has a feature called WinIt and you can enter codes. They are like the swagcodes. They don’t seem to be as frequent as the swagcodes though.

Swagbucks you can cash out for gift cards, or for paypal cash. The rate is 100sb is equal to $1. Which you can cash out even as low as a $3 gift card for Amazon. There is an area in the Rewards Store that you can donate sb to charities. I think that is really cool too.

Inbox Dollars you can only cash out once you get to $30. It’s rather difficult to get there unless you’re on it every day trying to make money off it. I don’t have time for that, so I get on every once in a while.

So try them out, and let me know. If you have tried or already use these, let me know what your thoughts are on them.
