Swagbucks Update: Trusted Surveys Daily Swagbuck

MegaSwagBucksFor all you fellow Swagbucks users, I thought I’d take a minute and explain a new change. Today is the second day in a row that I haven’t received my daily Swag Buck for clicking on the ‘Trusted Surveys’ page. So why aren’t you getting Swagbucks anymore? Swagbucks just revamped their ‘Trusted Surveys’ page as well as how we get our daily Swag Buck. Before, we could just bring up the page and get paid. Not anymore. :-( I’m not sure how long this will last and whether or not they will go back to how it was before, but here’s what I found on their blog:

Starting today at 10am PST, for a limited time only, instead of receiving 1 Swag Buck when you visit the Trusted Surveys Page, you will now be awarded 1 Swag Buck when you attempt to take a survey and are Disqualified or the survey was Over Quota.  You can receive this 1 Swag Buck incentive up to 5 times a day.

Overall though, 1 Swag Buck less a day isn’t really going to make that much of a difference. There are many ways to earn with Swagbucks, so don’t let it get you down. :-)

Swagbucks Update: Trusted Surveys Daily Swagbuck — 4 Comments

  1. Not only that but there aren’t as many showing up as there used to. I think they found out many were BS’ing there way through the survey’s to get swagbucks. I used to log in to find at least 10 to 15 with them being 50 – 100 each now not a single one. It sucks!

    • That’s crazy. I never really did many of the surveys, I’ve always been more pleased with the Swagbucks TV and searches. Thanks for the extra info Hendrick783. :-)

  2. Sure thing Jen. I e-mailed Swag to see whay I’m not getting any survey’s at all and they said to contact the company they use and gave me the e-mail addy. I haven’t sent an e-mail yet but I still have yet to get a survey. One thing that makes me mad are the tasks. That stuff is sort of like actual work and it takes a good bit of time to do. I e-mailed Crowdflower or who ever to ask that they raise the payments of Swagbucks. It costs 450 Swagbucks just to get a $5 Amazon gift card and they pay like 20 – 40 for about an hours work when doing those tasks. That’s BS! Minimum wage is like $6.50 or so an hour. I mean I know it’s purely voulenteer work but still if we do one or two we should at least get paid 125 Swags for the quick ones and at least 250 for the 10 page qualify / 10 page task that they put up. Not 20 here and there! Those bigger ones take quite a bit of time to do.

    • Yeah I tried out the ‘tasks’ a couple times and decided that they weren’t anywhere worth my time. I’m guessing the tasks are meant for people who don’t break it down and realize how much they’re really earning. I just go for the other stuff and use other places too. Swagbucks is def. my favorite but I can’t seem to make as much as I want to with them alone.
