With this strategy, a $100 Disney gift card purchase earns you $9.50 in Swagbucks plus other rewards too. But, now comes the question, “How do I redeem Swagbucks?” Here’s our strategy and what we think are the best ways to redeem Swagbucks.

Two Ways to Redeem Swagbucks

There are two basic ways to redeem Swagbucks. You can use them to purchase gift cards from a variety of retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Starbucks and more. You can even get Visa gift cards.

Or, you can cash out your Swagbucks through PayPal. They will get transferred into your PayPal account and you can then transfer them directly from PayPal into your bank account. PayPal becomes a “middle man” but you’ll get cash without any fees.

Best Ways to Redeem Swagbucks

Discounted Gift Cards

The first time you redeem Swagbucks each month, you’ll have a variety of discounted options on gift cards. We think the best of these options is the $25 Amazon gift card for 2,200 Swagbucks. This is a 12% discount on Amazon gift cards. We like this option because it’s so easy to load Amazon gift cards directly into your account and not have to worry about carrying it around.


After we’ve purchased our Amazon gift card each month, any amount we earn above that goes straight to PayPal and then into our checking account. The reason we do this is because cash gives you a chance to earn more rewards. If my Swagbucks go back into my checking account, I can purchase another Disney gift card, earn more Swagbucks, and the cycle continues.
