App Reviews

  • Great concept but...formatting??

    By autumnjoy57
    First of all, I’m opinionated. Aren’t most of us? But I’m opinionated and vocal and I LOVE doing surveys for points. I’ve had this app for two days and I’ve done 20+ in-depth surveys. And I work full time, and I’m a mom. But I am all about this. HOWEVER. I’m doing this THROUGH the mobile app, right? But I keep getting into surveys that are only formatted for computers. Like, i can’t see part of the question. Or it’s a drag and drop answer but in order to drag it to the right place, I have to scroll, and you can’t scroll and drag at once. I’m writing this review 3/4 through a beer survey. I LOVE BEER! I’m into this survey. And I’ve been working on this for a long time already, so I’m hoping for big points. But I come to a question after 20 minutes of investing myself into this that the mobile app format doesn’t allow for. It wants me to rank 6 taps but I can only see one. I zoom in, zoom out, scroll up, down, hit refresh, hit the back button, try to skip past it; all to no avail. Not only do all my points fly to the wind, but my valuable beer intell is going to be lost to these beer researchers! They’ll never know how much I enjoy a Bock! Out of my 20 surveys, I’ve hit this wall 8 times. Do the stats people; that’s way too high. So app developers, find a way to clean that up, please? Filter through the survey formats so you don’t cause users and researchers alike the heartbreak.
  • Reliable

    I recently moved out of home and am in a financial crisis. It became hard for me to not have the money for a Starbucks drink or simply buy myself something nice at the store. I became quite obsessed with money apps trying to whip out free money and got absolutely nowhere. Swagbucks is the first app that’s actually gotten me somewhere. I’m currently using 10 other money making apps and with swagbucks I’ve received 5 free Starbucks drinks and 25 dollars in my PayPal account. Now- it’s honestly the app I keep going back to after all others fail. I highly recommend this app. Just keep in mind that it does take time and you do have to put in the effort. Thankfully it has a lot of ways to earn points and if you have a lot of time on your hands you could walk away with gift cards in a day or two. :) and also most apps just want surveys or to play games. But with swagbucks you can shop, take surveys, watch videos, check out blogs... lots to do:) (and check fb often for swagcodes)
  • Don’t waste your time!

    By Funkyitunesb00y
    They deactivated my account when you first make an account they allow you to take a lot of surveys they allow you to watch a Videos then it gets starts to get to the point where you start taking surveys and then they kick you off after you put all your personal information in there. After a while sometimes they won’t allow you to take surveys they’ll they’ll continue to keep kicking you out then they’ll allow you to watch a Videos to make five swag bucks and they Play the same videos over and over it’s just the same boring videos over and over and then after a while they will kick you off in the activate your page because he said you were cheating on the videos when in reality they just keep playing the same boring videos over and over and if you’re trying to make money and you’re trying and you’re depending on them don’t depend on them yes you will get money for a while but after a while they will kick you off the find a reason to kick you off don’t waste your time this is a waste of time.
  • Desktop is easier

    By atalanta23
    I’ve been using Swagbucks for a couple of years now. and I get what a lot of people are saying in these reviews. 1. The app or swagbucks itself is not built for phones. Many of the surveys you have to swipe left or right to take. Some aren’t made for the phone. Others it tells you to rotate the screen but it doesn’t rotate. 2. Frozen screen time. There are times when you’re taking a survey, loading a survey, loading a video and it freezes. Causing you to close the app and reload it. This makes you lose your progress. 3. Wasting time. Some surveys you get through qualifying for it that’s sometimes takes the 15 or 20 minutes only to be told you don’t qualify. It’s frustrating! I understand that there are a tone of people answering surveys but it is also unfair when you’re in the middle and you’re doing great. And all of a sudden BAM! You no long qualify. 4. Not as user friendly as the website. 5. Videos need to change. This app has a long way to go in order to be top of the line and the fact that it seems that many of the people have the same issues means that the manufacturers and technicians for the company aren’t paying attention. I will say this. Swagbucks can be great. I have redeemed points for gift cards with ease through the website. If you want to use this site. I suggest the webpage instead.
  • Good idea, but I’m frustrated

    By allisonc1023
    I love giving my opinion on everything from pizza brands to movies in theatres, and I love that I can get paid for it. That said, I have two major issues with the app. First of all, nothing is more frustrating than working on a survey for 15 min+ and getting to a question that asks about your age, gender, income, etc. and being kicked out. This results in a lot of wasted time answering surveys that you aren’t even eligible for, making the app user frustrated and causing the companies conducting the surveys to lose responses. If we knew earlier that we were ineligible we could spend the time on other surveys. The whole concept of the app is the user gets money and the company gets opinions, but this trick helps no one. What would be ideal is if you could enter in your birthday, gender, and all the other information that every survey asks you one time through the Swagbucks app. Then if the app could somehow filter out surveys that you are ineligible for, that would mean increased productivity for everyone and less frustration. Also, I have noticed that many surveys seem to be formatted for a computer screen and will not work on mobile. This is annoying and causes responses to not be recorded and potential Swagbucks lost. Please fix this. Again, I love the idea of this app but I am so frustrated with the actual functionality of it that I am about to quit.
  • It’s good !

    By BoPoeHoe
    Look, you’re not going to retire off this thing. My wife and I are making some extra money for our family. Right now, she and I aren’t able to work so it’s a cool and easy way to make some extra ends meet while doing some simple mindless things. You do get kicked out of things you try and do, like surveys and videos, but, only if you don’t qualify or fall into the demographic they’re looking for. Sure, it can happen a lot, but it also takes time to get into a swing and flow with it. The trivia one is fun, and you could win actual cash deposited for knowing some general things and even obscure ones. I think it’s cool, it’s fun, it can pass the time and it can give you some rewards but you have to work at it a little. Not everything is for everyone, but like I said, it’s simple, it’s easy and it does work, you just have to work the system a little.
  • SO many issues - please update this app

    By wmdnfhsosm
    This has happened about a dozen times since I’ve downloaded the app a few days ago. I will go to take a survey and then when the page is redirecting, it just closes and takes me back to the survey home page with no reward. Sometimes it’ll also just close randomly for no reason. I’ve lost on on hundreds of swagbucks because of this. ALSO, there is no button to close a survey!!!! For example, I’ll take a survey, there will be another issue (there are ALWAYS issues with the surveys, more likely than not), it’ll say “try again later” but then I’m STUCK on that page and can’t go back to the survey home page. Why isn’t there a close button anywhere??? I have to literally quit the app and reopen it just to get back to that page. This app hasn’t been updated in two months — why???? These bugs need to be fixed. I’m so close to deleting.
  • Extra Cash

    By Edward Galligan III
    People are on their phones all the time already, why not make some extra money. You will definitely not get rich off of this app, but do some surveys here and there, and you’ll eventually rack up a $25 gift card. Update- Many of these surveys are not made to be taken on a smartphone. You have to scroll left and right several times to read and answer a question. Some surveys want you to rotate your phone, but the app won’t do anything. When you click on a “terms and conditions” link, you have no way to get back to the survey. Some surveys will lead you to other surveys if you get disqualified from the current survey, but you have no way of ever getting back to the home survey page without closing the app because you just keep getting disqualified and sent to new surveys. These all need to be fixed.
  • If you have a lot of time you can make some money

    By Mikeandfalena
    My mother sent me a link a couple months ago when I tried it the first month was really easy but I think that’s because they want you to keep being a member I’ve noticed that last month was much harder and now this month I noticed that the videos Used to be one two or three swag bucks for watching a reasonable amount of time sometime between five minutes and 25 minutes now it’s down to one and two and you’ll have to spend 42 minutes watching a video for three swag bucks which equals three cents. Are usually get my points from shopping ordering things to be picked up in the store like Walmart or Menards or Home Depot all in all it’s not a bad site to use if you’re bored
  • It was just not the best

    By sad puppy dog child
    I was actually very excited to earn some money because my parents wouldn’t give me any to spend on games and stuff so I decided to earn it myself. I made several accounts on the computer because they kept on deactivation for some reasons. My first account they decided to kick me out like right at the moment and I didn’t know what was going on so I made more accounts and the same thing happed. Then I decided to download an app if it helped and it did. It helped me get started on some surveys but then after like three days of surveys I didn’t qualify for any more surveys and my main way of earning swag bucks was doing those surveys and since I can’t do those any more than i can’t really earn much swagbucks.
