Income Boosters

OK... You must be sick of all the online gurus telling you making money online is easy! These are not get rich quick schemes, and are definitely not going to make you a millionaire overnight.

Instead I thought I'd share with you some a ways I saved money, and got some extra cash when I started out in University.

Don't glance over these sites, some of them are actually quite good. Most have tools inside the account such as Google Extensions & referral links which can send you to the best brands with discount codes and special offers.


This is a survey site, where you can complete tasks for cash bonus's or gift cards. But that's not all... SwagBucks also gives members free access to discount codes, offers and cash back opportunities.

On SwagBucks you earn what are called 'SwagBucks' or SB's. You can use them to get gift cards for Amazon or other high street retailers, or you can redeem them for cash payments directly to PayPal. The tiers for payments work like this: Remember that generally 100SB = £1/$1.

Benefit                    SB Points
£10/$10 cash through PayPal                      1,000SB
£10/$10 Amazon Gift Card                      1,300SB
£10/$10 iTunes Voucher                      1,360SB
£5/$5 Starbucks Voucher                        700SB


These are not the only gifts you can receive, the offer vouchers from all the high streets brands such as M&S, John Lewis, Walmart, Tesco, and GAP. The amount of SB points required to redeem these rewards differ. You can also donate your SB points as charitable donations to organisations such as UNICEF, Save the Children, and Wounded Warrior Project.

SwagBucks rewards users for filling in surveys, but this is actually the worst way to make money on the platform... The best way is to use SwagBucks's default search browser.

By using the browser, which is operated by Yahoo, you can earn money just from searching everyday things. If you use the search engine 5 or 6 times a day, in 1 year you could earn over £600 in cold hard cash. Swagbucks confirms that users typically earn between $50 and $1,000 per year from the search feature, as well as filling in surveys, playing with new apps, and referring friends for rewards.

I believe, users from Swagbucks can realistically make £4-£7 per day using the platform for 15-30 minutes per day. This is not including the savings made when shopping online.

Since SwagBucks creations the company has rewarded users with £293,758,537.

That's not all!

The SwagBucks Google Chrome Extension allows users with a valid account to get notified when shopping about cash back opportunities, and discount codes available for products on Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Walmart and many more online stores in the UK & U.S. Just look at the potential saving we can make on the new Microsoft Surface Laptop 3:

Even if you don't want to spend time doing surveys for cash I think SwagBucks will be a great idea for everyone to use. You can make savings on your everyday shopping, Christmas and Birthday presents, and more importantly, have extra cash to spend on more important things in life.
