How I Made $65+ on Swagbucks in One Day – Saving for Disney

Swagbucks is a popular site to earn a little extra money. I use that little extra for trips to Disney World. I’m going to show you how I made $65+ in one day. I turn that money into Disney gift cards for our trips. Swagbucks can be overwhelming when first getting started. It is easy to get caught up in the fact that you are earning nothing but pennies at times, but those pennies add up and sometimes there are offers that will really pad that budget for Disney.

(You may find referral/affiliate links in this post. We will get a little something if you decide to purchase or sign up, but it doesn’t cost you any extra. See full disclosure here. Thanks for the support!)

You have to be smart about doing sign-ups and making purchases for Swagbucks. You need to turn those offers into money making offers. That is what I’m going to show you. These are things that  I needed anyway and got some extra cash for it. If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks before, click HERE and you will get a bonus $3. You can click through each offer linked here. Make sure that you have the Swagbutton installed on your browser and the offer is activated to get credit when you sign up.

The first thing I did was the BarkBox offer. You can nab 1,500 Swagbucks for signing up which is equal to $15.00. Some people found it for 2,000. I was not one of the lucky ones. You need to select the subscription for six months. Don’t worry, you can cancel after your first box. Boxes are $25, but use my referral code 3K8GAKCTTE so your first box is free. You don’t even have to pay shipping.

This is our first Bark Box


The next offer is CreativeBug. This is a craft site that you will need a subscription for. Sign up for the two week free trial and you will get 500 Swagbucks. Cancel your subscription before the two weeks is up and you won’t be charged. Or keep it because it looks like an awesome craft site.


You will have to spend $5 for this next offer, but you will get 2,000 Swagbucks in return. So you will make $15 on this offer. Purchase the $5 starter kit from Dollar Shave Club. It was time for me to get some razors anyway so this was perfect timing. You can get an extra 1,500 if you choose to continue your subscription for another month. 
The next offer will actually get you some extra money for Disney too. The description for this site states, “Paribus watches for price reductions and automatically gets you money back if prices drop on your eligible purchases.” You will get 400 Swagbucks for signing up. I will let you know how well that works so check back.
Okay, so this next offer will not end up being a money maker, but you just need to pay $1 right now and get 2,000 Swagbucks. It’s the Disney Movie Club so you will be buying five movies right now for $1 and make a commitment to buy three more movies at full price within 24 months. We purchase Disney movies all the time when new ones are released so this is no big deal for us. When you click on the offer, it will tell you to buy four movies for $1 and a five movie commitment. Scroll down to the very bottom and click on Enter Promotional Code. Enter the code 50822 for a free Moana blanket or 50503. This code allows you to get five movies for $1 and only have a three movie commitment. 
Side note: Sign up for Disney Movie Rewards and enter the codes that will be in the movies. You will get points that you can trade for Disney gifts cards or other fun rewards.
I signed up for each one of those offers and will get $64. Each offer will show pending in my account for different amounts of time. For the last $1+ earnings, I did searches, videos, the daily to-do list, and surveys. That is $65+ that I am putting aside for our next Disney trip.
