How to earn over £125 a year only using your phone

Along with keeping this blog, I also do a lot of other things online. One site that I joined quite a long time ago now was Swagbucks. I don’t do nearly as much on it as I used to but I do use it as a staple to earn some extra cash every month. Today I’m going to show you how to earn over £125 a year only using your phone.


To put it quite simple, I’m really lazy with Swagbucks now and I don’t earn very much from it, even though I could if I put in some more time. However, I do earn at least £125 a year. This might not seem a lot to some people but for very little effort, it’s worth doing.

Swagbucks works in SB, not real cash but I’ll get to that soon.

I’m going to do this in a lovely, easy step by step tutorial to make it nice and easy –

Sign up to Swagbucks – you can do this either on a laptop/ desktop or phone

Download the following apps on you phone from the Google Play Store:

Play videos using the apps

Each app will allow you to earn 10 Swagbucks per day. The videos will play in a loop so really, you don’t have to do much. However, sometimes ads get in the way and mess up the loop so you do sometimes have to restart the app. I keep mine playing and check on it every now and again. Each app will also let you know when you cannot earn any more SB for the day. When that happens, change to your next app!

Let the sb build up

So here’s the bit where I get to you earning over £125 a year. Unfortunately, it’s a little bit less if you’re using an iPhone as there are only 5 apps instead of 6.

If you earn the maximum SB on each (Android) app every single day, you’ll amass 21,900 SB in a year. What this works out as depends on what you want to redeem your points for. I either redeem for PayPal (actual cash) or Amazon Vouchers.

£100 PayPal = 16,000 SB

£25 PayPal = 4,000 SB


£100 Amazon Voucher = 14,400 SB

£50 Amazon Voucher = 7,200 SB

At the time of writing this post, Swagbucks have a bit of a discount on most gift cards so you get more for your points. There is also a sale every year before Christmas so it’s worth waiting for this.

As you can see, Amazon vouchers are a bit cheaper than redeeming for PayPal money. There are loads of other gift vouchers available too but these are the most popular, especially for me.

Additional SB

There are loads more ways that you can earn more SB to bump up your balance such as watching videos on your desktop/ laptop, completing the daily poll and taking part in surveys. However, these are more time consuming and do require more effort.

By just using these apps every single day, I can save up a nice chunk towards Christmas every year. Wouldn’t it be nice to save some money for not doing much at all?
