Now that the contest is over, and I've submitted my entry, I want to say that yes, my claim was true that I made over 10,000 SB yesterday. Some were curious as to how I did it, so I'm going to try and give a brief overview.
Let me start by saying that I've been a member of Swagbucks for 6 years now, so I'm pretty competent at earning. However, lately, I've pretty much just been doing mobile videos and a few other things. I haven't done a lot of special offers in a while, so I think I had some that others might have already done.
Additionally, I didn't have work yesterday. I was up at roughly 6AM Eastern Time, and didn't stop until around 10PM Eastern Time. I also have a desktop and a laptop, which helps a lot.
In saying that, here's a rough breakdown of how I did it: The Dailies:
4 Easy Ones + 10 for Games Mobile Vids:
Maxed out to 126 Swagbucks TV:
132 - I got tired and was still doing these, trying to get the max of 150, but ended up stopping. Encrave:
252 - Did these on my laptop pretty much all day, making sure to keep the window active as much as I could. Surveys:
735 - Every once in a while I would try a new survey. I ended up completing 12 of them, got 2 points from profile questions which I had never done, and was disqualified from 29 of them. Something people might not know is that even if you are DQ'd from Peanut Labs surveys, you get 1 point even if you've failed 5 Swagbucks surveys for that day. Offers:
9321 - Obviously the bulk of my points came from special offers. As I mentioned before, most of the offers I did were profitable. I spent about $7-10 total. I don't know the exact amount because I didn't keep perfect track, but it was no more than $10 for sure.
Most of the offers that I did were from the same company. They included the "Star Trek Club", "Family Bible Films", "Baked & Delicious Collection", "Rules of the Road", "EarlyMoments.com Elmo's Learning Adventure", "Learn Our History", & "Disney Cakes & Sweets Co". Most of these types of offers I would never do because even though they are profitable (you have to usually pay about $4.95 and get 500 Swagbucks), $0.05 is usually not enough for me to go through the hassle of cancelling them. However, for the contest, I chose to do it. A couple of these were around 5.95-$7, but worth the cost for the contest, I'm hoping.
Another big offer I completed was for Jewel Scent. It was on the front home page and was 1300 swagbucks. Using a discount code on the site was allowed, and my total with shipping for what a bought was $13.90. Again, a small loss, but hopefully for a bigger gain with the contest. Plus, my other gains for the day well out-paced my losses.
A few other offers I've done were for insurance, which I actually do need for a couple things, however I normally wouldn't do them through Swagbucks. My phone has been bombarded yesterday and today from phone calls.
Finally, I did a few others like FuboTV and MyLife and a ton of 1, 2, and 3 point offers for quizzes, slideshows and the like. Unfortunately, I didn't keep track of which offerwalls they were from, I am sorry about that, but if you browse the walls you might find them. A lot of offers I also found by simply continuously scrolling the home page of Swagbucks.
One tip I would give about special offers, is that if you fine one that you can do, make sure to check EVERY other wall for the same offers. There are usually duplicate offers on several walls, and they aren't always for the same amount.
At the end of it all, I now have 16 reminders on my Google Calendar for offers that will renew after a week, 2 weeks, or a month that I'll have to cancel.
It was a long day where I basically watched YouTube and movies while I did Swagbucks.
Feel free to ask my any questions! EDIT:
I'd also like to give a big shout out to Swagbucks Support. I had two ~500 offers that didn't credit after I finished them, and within about an hour of reporting each one, they credited me. I don't think I would have been able to break 10k without their help! EDIT 2:
I was asked to put together a list of the offers I did. Here's the ones I have saved from my email. Like I mentioned before, some are barely profitable, and some are not at all, and some might end up being a real hassle to cancel...
- Vetz Petz
- Disney Cakes & Sweets Co.
- EarlyMoments.com Elmo's Learning Adventure (There's also a Dr. Suess one, but I did that in the past)
- Family Bible Films
- Baked & Delicious Collection
- Star Trek Starships Collection
- Rules of the Road DVD
- Learn Our History Ladies of Liberty
- Realplayer Cloud (I've seen a few of these, I think it was the 900SB for 4.99 a month)
