Swagbucks is a website based in California, owned by Prodege LLC.

Users can earn points (called SwagBucks or SB) by doing a variety of online activities, including searching, shopping, taking surveys, playing games, and discovering online content.  SB can then to redeem those points for gift cards, PayPal cash, or other rewards.

I’ve been on Swagbucks since the beginning of April and cash out about £100 a month in Amazon giftcards.  I spend a maximum of 30 mins to 2 hours a day on Swagbucks in small increments, like 10 minutes here & there.

I will only recommend sites & apps that I have used myself and cashed out from successfully.
