EPF Last Update: May 28, 2019

Today we are really happy and proud because one of the most popular companies, Swagbucks, have decided to give an interview for EliteSurveySites. We have picked the questions carefully, and the answers say a lot about this company. We have also selected questions that can help people make money with surveys.

According to the information on your site, Swagbucks has paid a total of almost $300 million and given 7,000 gift cards a day. Is that information correct and how did you become one of the most popular companies in this industry?

That information is correct and continues to grow on a day to day basis. We’ve grown to over 40 million registered members on our site, because we put our members first.  Everything we do is for the members benefit, we work very hard to bring them the best deals, offers, surveys and as many ways to earn as possible.

We are also available in multiple countries including; United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, Spain, India and Australia.

Please give us some background. – Tell us who you are and how the company was started.

Swagbucks is owned and operated  by Prodege, LLC and just celebrated our 10th birthday earlier this year.  Our goal as a company is to “Create Rewarding Moments” for our consumers, and with keeping that in mind, we continue to connect engaging content to our audience and outfit them with valuable rewards.

Prodege is the company behind Swagbucks. Do you have any other company?

Prodege, LLC  is the parent company of consumer loyalty platforms, Swagbucks, MyPoints and ShopAtHome.  We also have a complementary suite of business solutions that help brands boost engagement with consumers by making it easy to gather insights, listen to their audience, and gain further exposure to drive brand loyalty.  Our members have collectively received over $500 Million in cash-back and gift cards to help support their everyday lives.

How many members do you have? How much can people expect to make with Swagbucks per month on average?

Swagbucks to date, has 40 Million members globally. How much you can earn really is up to the individual. Naturally someone who uses Swagbucks every day is going to earn more than someone that uses us once a month.

We have some great success stories from members in our blog. Members often use their earnings to pay for holidays, Christmas presents, books for studies, to pay for the bills and much more.

Please list some tips on how people can make more money with Swagbucks.

Some of the most popular ways to earn through Swagbucks are the following:

  • SHOP at over 1,500 retailers including Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy and get cash back along with coupons, deals and special discounts
  • ANSWER and share your opinion to get free gift cards. Our members take thousands of personalized surveys from top brands and agencies every day
  • WATCH videos from leading content sites and redeem points for cash (via Paypal) or free gift cards
  • DISCOVER activities that reward you the way YOU enjoy spending your time online – thousands of options from a rich network of partners and stores
  • Earn while you SEARCH with Yahoo!
  • PLAY popular games from providers such as Game Show Network (GSN) – popular titles like Wheel of Fortune, Bejeweled Blitz, and Scrabble Cubes


  • Our two newest ways to engage with the Swagbucks ecosystem and earn money are:
    • Engage in a daily live TRIVIA game show, Swag IQ from the comfort of your phone!
    • Save with our extension called the Swag Button. This is a really great piece of technology we have developed that alerts you when you visit our partners websites all the best deals, coupons and how much SB you can earn. So you can earn and save without evening visiting Swagbucks.

In addition to that we also have monthly and daily promotions where our members can earn bonuses. Keep an eye out for our contents including Swago and team challenge games.  Also try to complete the daily to do list, the points will start to rack up really quickly if you can complete this every day.

What are your payment options?

The Swagbucks Rewards Store has gift cards from hundreds of popular online and brick-and-mortar retailers.  The barrier to entry for rewards is low; you can get a gift card starting at $3 and as high as $500.  Most of our members exchange their points for either a payment through PayPal, or gift cards to top stores like Amazon, Starbucks or iTunes.

Give us more details about your cash back program.

Our shop channel is becoming a very popular way to earn and save. We have thousands of stores, coupons and discounts live, there are many more to come.

When you do the shopping online, if you do it through Swagbucks we get paid a commission for referring that sale from the store. All we simply do is pass that commission back to the member in points.

As I mentioned earlier, members should certainly download the browser extension to make the most of this area.

What can people expect from Swagbucks? Anything that you are planning to launch soon? New programs?

Sadly, I can’t give away specific details. But we have lots of great developments and updates in progress right now. We have more earning opportunities, we are improving the Swagbucks platform to make it easier for members to use and more technology for a better experience. We are always looking to improve what we do for our members.

Questions related to paid surveys:

What are paid surveys?

Paid Surveys come from Market Research. Top brands and companies pay good money to websites like Swagbucks to get feedback about their brand, product and website so they can make the necessary improvements. Much like how cashback works, when we earn this commission we pay the people that take the time to answer these questions.

How can people know if a survey panel is scam?

Companies, brands, and organizations from around the globe are constantly seeking the opinions of people just like you to help shape the products they develop and how they market them. They count on paid online surveys to provide them with reliable information.  There are lots of survey panel companies out there. The best advice we can give is be sure you’re taking them through a known provider with an online reputation.

How much can people expect to earn with paid surveys?

It’s easy to earn cash for surveys. How much you get paid completely depends on how many paid surveys you attempt and complete. Each online survey has a different payout, with some offering as much as $50. Most will pay less, but also take less time. Expect to earn about 40 to 200 SB points per survey (100 SB = $1), with occasional opportunities with much higher earning potential.

What is your opinion on Elite Survey Sites?

I think what you are doing is great. In any industry or sector, it’s good to have companies that compare competitors side by side in a professional way so that the people can decide who to use.

In our survey last year, we asked 1,000 people to list their favorite company. Swagbucks got an amazing number of votes. It is always in our top 3 panels. How did you achieve this success and amount of trust?

Again, same answer as the first question really, the members are our priority. We ensure that our members are getting the best deal on any of our channels and earning as much as possible for their time. We are also honest and do what we say we are going to do, which isn’t always the case with a lot of websites.
