For those of you who are not familiar with team challenges, these fun events give you an opportunity to gain points as a team to win a prize, normally a Swag Up (a rebate on your next gift card). Points are not the same as Swagbucks. If you are new to Swagbucks I recommend you check out my guide to earning 80+ a month with Swagbucks.


From the Swag Luau Team Challenge Page:
"It’s time to grab your favorite Hawaiian shirt and grass skirt. The Swag Luau Team Challenge begins Monday, August 14th at 8am PT/ 11am ET and ends on Friday, August 18th at 12PM PT/ 3PM ET.

Doing small offers on discover will be the fastest way to earn points. RadiumOne, PeanutLabs and other walls have dozens of 1 sb offers, and each of these will be worth 20 points for the team challenge. Mobile discover offers are worth 10 points each. Check out some of these too some of them have great payouts for not a ton of work. Also check adgate for the Insurance Branch offers.
One option is  to check the sponsored videos section and there are multiple options, I start by clicking on the guy with a laptop. Normally this takes about 10 separate clicks but only takes about two to three minutes. It's worth 2 sb each time you complete it and can sometimes be done 15+ times a day. If you see a girl in a tank top, always click on it, it'll be about 30 seconds, you must interact with the ad in some way, and it credits 2 sb each time. The others I do less often because they take more time and sometimes have issues crediting.
Do some watch when you get a chance, it's worth 15 points per completed playlist. Check out my instructions for doing this the quickest way to make the most through watch on the computer. This includes watch, Toolbar Tv .  NCrave is  being counted as watch this time around, and is also excellent for general earning.  The 1 sb ones will be the quickest way to get points. Try this list of the shortest videos to earn. Earning on the apps will contribute 10 points to your team

If you want to boost your search wins I recommend following my instructions here to maximize your earnings there, this can help you get your daily list finished daily. For general earning check out my Advanced Guide to Swagbucks.

Visit any store from the featured shops and you'll contribute 5 points to your team! This is an excellent way to max out your points needed in a day. Max of 10 stores.

I encourage you to check the Swagbucks subreddit or the Swaggernaut Facebook group for more helpful hints! As always, feel free to check out the rest of my blog and all of the tips and tricks for earning money online! I'll try to keep this post updated daily with any new information that I have, so check back daily!

A couple of recent offers that are working. Make sure to do these on desktop with your adblocker turned off and using the same email as you use for Swagbucks for the best chance of crediting. The Blue Apron, Dollar Shave Club, Gillette, and Naturebox offers all creditted for me, and are money makers. They're great for getting your daily bonus and things you already need/use.

8 Apps You Can Install On Your Phone to Make $50+ a Week

Sometimes you just need a little extra money. If you have a smartphone here are 8 apps you can download today that can help make you $25 or more per week. I have rated these based upon my own personal experience with each/ease of use. Some are more passive than others, and there is far more to be made with most of these apps than just $25.

1. Swagbucks- by following this guide you can easily make $7 a week. Much more can be made on this site, including cash back on online purchases, watching videos, doing surveys and more. Giftcards available as low as $2. Only one phone can be used per account, but multiple devices allowed per household Check out my guide for more information.



2. Slidejoy puts ads on your swipe screen. On average it nets .15-20 cents a day meaning a possible 1.40 Lowest payout is 100 points, but points are only redeemable the month after they are earned, so points earned in January are available in February.


3. Microsoft Rewards-do searches on mobile and computer to earn a possible 28 points. Once you reach gold level(less than a month of being active) gift cards are discounted down to 475 points, which means you can redeem them for a $5 gift card. I recommend you check out my guide for earning through changing your search engine.

4. Perk -you can run videos overnight on a phone overnight. There are a couple of additional apps including some games that you can download to make more points. Possible to make as much as .50 per phone up to 5 phones per account(multiple accounts per household allowed) just from watching videos. $2.50 possible per day. $12.50 possible per week. Gift cards available through amazon and others starting at $1.00. Can redeem for paypal. They also have a quiz, word search and other apps.

5. Ibotta -scan in your receipts and redeem cash back on grocery and other purchases. Sign up with to get a sign up bonus! You can redeem through paypal or gift cards.

6. App Trailers -watch videos and make points. 10 points= $.01. Lowest cashout is 100 points. Pretty straight forward, you can link this to your perk account and cashout easier. Max devices for this app is 5.


7. Inboxdollars -watch videos, search and do surveys to earn points. Payout is by check or prepaid card. I haven't had much success here.


8. Rewardable TV- watch videos to make points 10 points =$.01. Cashout for paypal or gift cards. Can be run on as many as 7 devices, but it is recommended that you run it on 4 or less per account (multiple accounts allowed) Get the app hereUse referral code TNEWTON8 when signing up for a bonus $.50 to get you started!

Swag Slopes Team Challenge Tips and Tricks!

Another Team Challenge is here! For those of you who are not familiar with team challenges, these fun events give you an opportunity to gain points as a team to win a prize, normally a Swag Up (a rebate on your next gift card). Points are not the same as swagbucks. If you are new to Swagbucks I recommend you check out my guide to earning 80+ a month with Swagbucks. 


From the Swag Slopes Team Challenge Page:

It's ski season and we have just the trip for you, it's the Swag Slopes Team Challenge! Don't worry about ski rentals, lessons, or the dreaded lift fees, your trip comes compliments of Swagbucks. Too cold, the SB will surely keep you warm.

All members who participate and contribute at least 400 points to their team’s total will receive a SB bonus in the form of a SB Swag Up Rebate! Members of the 1st place team will receive a 50 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 2nd place team will receive a 25 SB Swag Up Rebate, and members of the 3rd place team will receive a 10 SB Swag Up Rebate. Your SB Swag Up Rebate will be made available on Friday, January 27th and will expire on Sunday, February 12th at 11:59pm PT. For more information, click here.



Doing small offers on discover will be the fastest way to earn points. RadiumOne, PeanutLabs and other walls have dozens of 1 sb offers, and each of these will be worth 20 points for the team challenge. Mobile discover offers are worth 10 points each. Check out some of these too some of them have great payouts for not a ton of work. 

One option is  to check the sponsored videos section and there are multiple options, I start by clicking on the guy with a laptop. Normally this takes about 10 separate clicks but only takes about two minutes and can be done while doing other things. It's worth 2 sb each time you complete it and can sometimes be done 15+ times a day. If you see a girl in a tank top, always click on it, it'll be about 30 seconds, you must interact with the ad in some way, and it credits 2 sb each time. The others I do less often because they take more time and sometimes have issues crediting. 

One offer that can really help is the EngageMe.TV from AdscendMedia. Keep playing it, but you have to keep it in the tab you are on to have the videos play. Each time it credits it gives you a credit in discover. 
Do some watch when you get a chance playing it in the background. Check out my instructions for doing this the quickest way to make the most through watch on the computer. This includes watch, Toolbar Tv  NCrave is  being counted as watch this time around, and is also excellent for general earning.  The 1 sb ones will be the quickest way to get points.

To get started on watch, look for the smallest playlists (6 videos or shorter). There is a good one under food that is 5 videos that is about pumpkins, it says 6, but it's really 5.

Some people will tell you differently, but buying swagstakes is not worth it most of the time. The payout is guaranteed to leave some people losers, and you would be better off just saving your sbs for your next gift card. If you really want to though, it is worth points to your team, and if you don't think you can make it to 400 for the challenge, this could be a way to do it quickly.

If you want to boost your search wins I recommend following my instructions here to maximize your earnings there. For general earning check out my Advanced Guide to Swagbucks.

Visit any store from our Holiday Deals page and you'll contribute 10 points to your team! This is an excellent way to max out your points in a day. 

I encourage you to check the Swagbucks subreddit or the Swaggernaut Facebook group for more helpful hints! As always, feel free to check out the rest of my blog and all of the tips and tricks for earning money online!

A couple of other tips and nice paying offers that you'll see out there: Sign up for Shell rewards for 300 SB. When trying lifescript offers make sure to clear your cookies before trying, and work through them quickly. You can get a lot of them done if you do that. Still less than half of them will credit.

Three new offers for DailyBreak through Revenue Universe worth a total of 45 SB.

There is an offer called 60 second insurance life - 120 sb From the Home screen go to discover  then to super rewards and click on 60 second life insurance. I recommend either incognito mode or clearing cookies.

On the front page under discover special offers and earn there is an offer titled "Get paid to be healthy!" for 35 SB. Sign up, you don't have to download an app, and you will be credited. 

There is also an offer for 2,000 SB for signing up for Hulu. You cannot cancel it until at least 10 days have passed or else you will lose your Swagbucks. You can find this by searching for Hulu in the search bar on the main screen. 

Check your your email from the 23rd. There is a Schwan's offer for 2000 sb for ordering $35. On top of that you get $30 off your first order.


Good luck!

InstaGC Holiday Bonus

The InstaGC Holiday Bonus is back! make sure you make the most of it!

If you haven't used it before InstaGC is a get paid to site like Swagbucks where you do tasks, complete offers, do surveys, and watch videos to earn points. Those points can then be redeemed for gift cards. The big difference between other sites and instagc? your gift cards come immediately. So no waiting for 2-4 weeks for your reward to come in.

What's the best way to earn? I like doing watch(earn-watch videos) and then doing offers that I see are crediting well for others in the panel to the left.

The Holiday Bonus offer gives you the opportunity to earn an additional 10% of anything you make during this time period. Don't have a InstaGC account? Signup here. Start out by trying a couple of 5-10 point offers on Adwall and Peanut labs.

From InstaGC.com:

What is the holiday bonus promotion?


Earn up to a 10% bonus on points earned through offer/task completion and referral commission obtained during the promotion period. Earnings from contests and promos do not count in any way shape or form in this promotion.
What is the promotion period?
The holiday bonus promotion starts on October 1, 2016 12:00 AM EDT and ends on January 1, 2017 12:00 AM EST.
What about points that are frozen?
Offers that were completed during the Holiday bonus program (10/1 - 12/31) period will count towards the bonus points once released, as long as they are released within the promotion period. Completing an offer before the promotion period started and having it released during it would not count for any bonus points.
How do I increase my bonus amount?
Each goal completed will increase your bonus by 1%. Complete at least 10 out of the 14 goals to obtain a 10% bonus.
When can I apply my bonus points?
You can apply them whenever you want. The longer you wait though the higher your bonus would be as your "current bonus" percentage increases.
What happens once I apply my bonus points?
The bonus points you apply get added to your overall point balance, the "points earned" gets reset back to 0, and the "current bonus" remains the same. Your bonus % will never decrease.
When do I have to apply my bonus points by?
Points must be manually applied by January 1, 2017 12:00 AM EST.



A few hints for completing the bonus. Start by looking through the scrolling offers on the right, you'll see the best ones that are crediting. Use watch and adbistro to get you to 4% easily with 1 point offers. Daily you can print off coupons on the main wall, (instagc) and under a couple of other tabs. Watch the right ticker for offers that are crediting. I also suggest looking through Peanut labs, sort by lowest and work your way through the offers there. You'll get through it quickly.

Follow the InstaGC facebook page for codes and updates on easy to do tasks.
