[Friendly reminder to claim your daily goal rewards from last month by clicking here for Swagbucks and clicking here for MyPoints.]
Swagbucks and MyPoints have a ‘Daily Goal’ bonus whereby you’ll get an additional bonus for earning a certain amount throughout the course of the day. The bonus is generally around 8-9% of the earn threshold, but the threshold varies widely by account.
There are two tiers to the Daily Goal: the first one is usually something like ‘earn 110 and get 9 SB bonus’, the second one will be something like ‘earn 4480 and get 367 SB bonus’.
It could be possible to get like $5 bonus per day, or around $300 per month. Of course, most people won’t be able to meet the goal every day. Still, it’s useful to keep in mind for days which you get close to that amount organically. For example, if you do one of the free money deals, you might come close or surpass your daily goal without giving any thought. Personally, I occasionally buy gift cards on Mygiftcardsplus deals, and I end up getting a few more dollars back via the Daily Goal bonus.
Interestingly, buying Swagbucks also works to count toward your Daily Goal, and some readers have even found it worthwhile to pay the 5% fee for buying Swagbucks in order to trigger their goal reward.
(Update 8/4/20: MyPoints now also has a Daily Goal as well. Updated above.)
Important: You must manually claim the rewards (Swagbucks here and MyPoints here) from the prior month at some point during the following month. I personally lost out a good bit from failing to do so, and now I’ve set up a monthly reminder to claim this reward.
If you’re new to Swagbucks then please read our review. You can also get a bonus of up to $13 by using a referral link.
