Wow! According to the Swagbucks Blog, they’ve made a few important changes to their current policy! The Swagbucks.com standing policy has always been “One Account Per Household”, meaning that if you’ve tried to refer a roommate, spouse, or sibling previously, you were probably unsuccessful and would be subject to the possible deactivation of that account. However, the new Swagbucks policy now allows each member of your household to have their own account!
A few things to keep in mind:
*Swagbucks won’t be linking accounts if one of you doesn’t refer the other.
*This policy is in effect moving forward, and doesn’t retroactively apply to older situations where multiple accounts in a household were discovered.
*Swagbucks is still only allowing one account per individual. Multiple accounts per person are still expressly prohibited and will be shut down.
SO, with all that being said…be sure to tell your spouse, brother, sister, roommate, live-in aunt or any other person in your household to join in on the Swagging fun! 😀
If you’re new to Swagbucks, here are a few ways to earn Swagbucks…
* Searching the web
If yours is a winning search, you will see a “Congratulations” screen featuring your Swag Bucks award immediately above your search results; you will never be directed away from your search. You can win multiple Swag Bucks every day; Swag Bucks can be won in denominations ranging from 1 – 1,000.
* Taking Surveys
Each survey that you chose to engage with may have a different Swag Bucks payout. Completing “deeper profiles” helps Swag Bucks alert you only to surveys for which you qualify and typically enables you to complete more targeted surveys which have significantly higher Swag Bucks payouts. Snag 1 Swag Buck per day just for heading over to the Survey page!
* Voting in Daily Polls
Snag 1 Swag Buck per day for voting in the daily poll.
* Watching videos
Swag Bucks are awarded randomly via Swag Bucks TV. Not every video you watch will earn you Swag Bucks, but just like Swag Bucks search, every video you watch is a chance to earn.

To ensure that an offer has been completed, follow the instructions provided for each individual offer. The offer needs be completed in the same session and all information required to complete the offer MUST be accurate. The majority of offers will credit your Swag Bucks account within 20 minutes.
