Swagbucks and Zoombucks

Just to give you a quick introduction, Swagbucks and Zoombucks are both reward sites. Once you are registered, you will be able to make some pocket money by completing some small tasks like watching videos, playing online games and completing surveys.

Both of them are running “point” systems where you could accumulate points along the way and claim them for cash, gift cards or vouchers for online shopping.

The cash out limits is slightly different between them. With Zoombucks, I can redeem an Amazon Voucher for 300 points. With Swagbucks, I can only redeem an Amazon Voucher for 860 points. It is obvious that Zoombucks offers better cash out limit.

Point Value

If today I watch an advertisement, both Swagbucks and Zoombucksreward you one point. However, one point in Zoombucks equals to one penny and it is less than a penny in Swagbucks. A Zoombucks point has a higher point value than a Swagbucks point.

Survey Qualification

So far, I found that it is easier to be qualified for paid survey in Zoombucks. I can easily get one survey per day while I rarely get qualified to do paid survey on Swagbucks. I am not sure why. I can only assume Zoombucks has a lot more companies signing up with them than Swagbucks. This is just purely based on my experience. I appreciate if you could share with me your experience with any one of them.

I have seen more complaints on Zoombucks than Swagbucks. There are many comments on Zoombucks as their site is often buggy. That leads to many troubles where the members were not credited after completing surveys. Some of them even spent more than two to three hours and the system crashed.

The worst part is you may be restricted from accessing the RadioLoyalty platform due to suspicious “activities”. The system does not know that the abnormalities are due to the system itself and not the members!

Reward Expiry

In Zoombucks, the promo codes expire sooner than Swagbucks. That simply means if you are not aware of the expiry dates, your effort of earning those points will be wasted.

Final Thought

Something I find it very strange about Zoombucks that even if the site is in Canada, there aren’t many offers available in Canada. Although it claims that anyone at anywhere can use the site, it does not have a lot of international offers. I find it a little misleading.

Anyway, if I were to choose the best one for myself, I would go for Swagbucks as it is more established. At least, I know the system does not bug! Can you imagine spending three hours watching a video or listening to a radio, and it bugs half way through? It can be very frustrating. The worst part is you will be potentially banned from accessing the site again.

What about you? Share with me your experiences with both reward sites.

Thanks for giving it a read.
