What do you like best?
What I like best about Swagbucks is that they provide their users with a very large and robust catalogue of offers, both free and paid, in a wide variety of categories; as a result, there's a good chance that there'll always be something available for you, to gain more Swagbucks and, sooner, hopefully, rather than later, use them to get a reward! They offer a OK assortment of rewards, but I find their selection of gift cards to be pretty impressive, due to the array of different marchants, and also due to the fact that gift cards range anywhere from as little as $3 to as much as $500!
What do you dislike?
Something that I very much dislike about Swagbucks is their 'surveys' section; in order to give you an idea, in a nutshell, of why that is, let me briefly describe what my experience has been thus far:
- only ever able to complete and recieve Swagbucks for around 1 in every 5 surveys, due to not meeting the qualifications that the survey in question requires be met, which can happens randomly at any point in the survey filling process
It's because of this that I now explicitly avoid taking part in their survey offers.
Recommendations to others considering the product
What I recommend to those who are considering Swagbucks is to:
- Be patient; sometimes those rewards can take some time, and require a bit of effort to jump through 'hoops' every now and then;
- Be willing and open-minded; if you really wanna be able to get enough Swagbucks for one of their higher-ended rewards, you'll have to be open to taking advantage of their trial- and paid- offeres, which pay out much more Swagbucks than their free offers do;
- Remember to always read the fine print for every offer that you intend on completing; the last thing anyone wants to do is to spend a lot of time working on a task only to find out at the very moment before finishing the task that you actually do not meet the requirements needed to participate in or receive any Swagbucks from doing said task.
I hope that my recommendations lead to many people becoming happier, and many people's wallets becoming heavier!
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
As a user of Swagbucks' services, I wouldn't say that I am trying to solve any problems by doing so. The benefits I have, in fact, realized, though, are that a) users are more likely to make use of offers/services that are user-friendly and understandable, free from surprises or disappointments, have goals that seem fair and achievable, and offers/services which have been tailored to meet the needs/wants of the user themselves.
