I know many of you probably have heard or even are a member of Swag Bucks reward system where you get paid in point for doing things online that you normally do like searching for toys, looking for nearby coffee shop and many more.
I am not a long time user of Swag Bucks. There are many experienced users who know the in and out of Swag Bucks. You can also follow many deal bloggers that post ways to earn extra credits in Swag Bucks each day.
Recently, I received the email about the new Bing Rewards. As curiosity is my middle name, I just have to check it out and see what is it. My first guess is it must be something similar to Swag Bucks and I was right.
What is Swag Bucks or Bing Rewards
Swag Bucks or Bing Rewards are the online website that rewards users for performing tasks online that they normally do like search using their search tool, purchase deals (Swag Bucks), accept offers from sponsors (Swag Bucks), try out new Bing Features (Bing Rewards)
How to Earn Credits with Swag Bucks or Bing Rewards
For Swag Bucks, there are many ways you can earn your credit. Currently there are 12 ways listed that you can earn your Swag Bucks ranging from Daily Deals, Search, Invite & Earn, Games and many more
For Bing Rewards, since it’s still new currently to see how you earn credits, you can click on the little tool bar at the top to see what other offers available. I have seen something along the line of ‘Search for weather forecast’ or ‘Search for nearby coffee shops’.
How to Redeem credit
There are various ways to redeem your credit. Most will love to get gift cards from big brand like Starbucks or Amazon.com.
At a quick glance, the amount of credits required to redeem the gift cards is comparable.
For $5 Amazon.com Gift Card
- Bing Rewards requires 541 credits
- Swag Bucks requires 450 SB
For $10 Starbucks Gift card
- Bing Rewards requires 1338 credits
- Swag Bucks requires 1300 SB
So clearly right now Swag Bucks has more advantage from require less credit to redeem and more selections of the redemption prizes.
However, right now Bing Rewards gives out 250 credits just for sign up. So if you are brand new and not a member to either Swag Bucks or Bing Rewards, it might be a great chance to start off with a huge credit in your account.
How to Start
You can sign up with Bing Rewards using your window live ID. So if you already have a hotmail account, they can easily link that to your Bing Rewards account.
For Swag Bucks, the sign up process is also quick and easy. You can choose to use your Facebook account to sign up. Click here to join.
One thing I found annoying is during the sign up process for Swag Bucks there are several offers. You just have to get past that.
I would love to hear from veteran Swag Bucks users about their experience and see how hard it is to build up your credit. Are we talking about months for one $5 gift card or just weeks?
