In this Swagbucks UK guide, I will take you through all the fundamental ways to claim free cash daily on the platform.
How Does Swagbucks Work?
Swagbucks is probably the best ‘Get Paid To’ (GPT) site ever made. Users earn points called “SB” for playing games, searching the web, clicking on adverts and filling in surveys. You can redeem SB points in exchange for PayPal cash or a variety of gift cards.
I firmly believe that Swagbucks should be a part of anyone’s lazy money making strategy, whether you just want to grab the fastest and easiest points each day, or make the most out of all the earning features on offer.
If you still need to register on Swagbucks, you can claim a 300 SB by signing up via my profile link, and earning your first 300 SB.
Once you’re signed up you’ll be ready to go through all the easy earning features below:
Simply answer today’s poll question for a quick 1 SB. You can find this either by looking on your “To Do List”, or going to the “Answer” section of the site.
Search & Win
Searches performed on the built-in search engine are periodically rewarded with points ranging from 4 SB to 25 SB. When you perform a winning search, you will need to manually claim your prize- It may ask you to complete a CAPTCHA.
It’s possible to win 3 times a day, if you are persistent. The best strategy seems to be pursuing a win in the morning, afternoon and at night. It helps to wait at least 30 second between searches.
Search wins are sometimes accompanied by collectible picture cards called ‘bills’ which are typically worth higher points values. Completing a collection of bills gives you an additional points bonus.
It really doesn’t seem to matter what you actually search for, by the way.
Pro tip: You may wish to set Swagbucks as the default search engine for your browsers address bar. This makes it easier to use their search engine consistently, and you will likely get wins by accident.
You can get 10 SB total each day by using any of the browser-based puzzle games on Swagbucks.
The games pay out 5 SB when you end on a score of at least 3000 points. This means you will need to open the game twice per day to get the full 10 SB reward. The most efficient strategy is to use the game Alu’s Revenge 2, and exit from the pause menu once you have enough points. For your second attempt to credit, you need to wait at least 15 seconds between games.

Swagbucks LIVE Trivia App
The Swagbucks LIVE app lets you play a daily trivia challenge to earn extra SB. The quiz consists of 10 multiple choice questions, with a top prize of 10 SB for a 100% score.
The questions very greatly in difficulty. Many questions are geared towards an American audience, making it tough for UK users. That said, I have had a perfect game before so it can be done.
The same app also lets you access live multiplayer trivia quizzes, where players compete for a share of a cash prize. The start times of these games is based on US time zones, which means it is mostly inconvenient for UK players to join. However, the Friday game takes place at 8pm GMT.
The cash prize per player is usually very small (e.g. 20 SB) due to the ease of winning. It is also possible to confer with other players on Discord to get the correct answers.
Swagbucks UK Swag Codes
Swagbucks release a promo code at least once a day on their UK Facebook page, which you can enter into the website to claim free points. Usually the Swag Code comes out around 4pm, and expires after 2 hours. They’re typically worth 2 or 3 SB, but occasionally Swagbucks is more generous.
The Swag Code will either be the same phrase for everyone, or it can involve a sequence of letters and numbers that’s unique to each user. In the case of the unique Swag Codes, Swagbucks gives you a link to a sponsor’s page where you can find the code (e.g. the Nike page on Swagbucks that shows cash-back offers).
What if you don’t want to sit on Facebook all today waiting for a Swag Code though? Well fear not. All you have to do is get the Twitter app on your phone, and follow the account SwagcodeSpoiler UK (@SCSpoilerUK). Enable push notifications for whenever this account tweets out a Swag Code alert, so you can effectively have Swag Codes sent straight to your phone.
Cashing Out From Swagbucks UK
Swagbucks UK users have a lot of options when it comes to redeeming their points. The easiest threshold to reach is 480 SB for a £3 Amazon UK voucher. I’m guessing most people want real money though, in which case there’s a £5 PayPal payment for 700 SB.
In order to get the best value for your points, you may want to consider the £10 Mastercard gift card for 1300 SB, rather than the £10 PayPal cash-out which is 1400 SB. Bear in mind that you may encounter restrictions when it comes to where or how you can spend it.
In case you’re wondering if Swagbucks is legit and whether or not it pays, there’s nothing to worry about. I’ve cashed out my earnings hundreds of times with no issues.
People who visit Swagbucks are guaranteed to pick up free cash daily through these simple activities.
The site may seem complicated at first, but give it a chance and you will be getting free gift cards in no time.
