I’ve been a big fan of SwagBucks for the past few months and only heard about ZoomBucks like 2 weeks ago.
Even if I haven’t use it for long, I found ZB pretty fun of use and decided to write up a little post about these two sites.
I hope this little piece of content will be insightful to you.
Feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments below.
Both are what we call small tasks or rewards sites.
When you register on one of those websites, you are asked to complete small tasks such as viewing videos, playing mini-games or completing surveys.
Doing so, you accumulate points you can exchange later for money, gift cards or discounts, depending on the site.
This isn’t an actual business model. More of a way to spend your free time making extra bucks.
ZoomBucks – It was founded by Vikas Tailor in 2010 and is based in Canada. I don’t know much about him, neither what he’s done other than ZoomBucks.
Swagbucks – Chuck Davis, Josef Gorowitz, Scott Dudelson, Eron Zehavi.
Signing up for either of these sites is almost completely free.
Why almost ?
Because they aren’t asking you money, they are asking personal information on yourself.
Email address, first and last name, home address, phone number, date of birth, etc.
They say it is to better target the offers.
That’s the main thing that bothers me with sites like these.
You need to be careful to whom you’re giving away your info.
ZoomBucks : It is pretty fun and easy to use. Really user-friendly.
The thing that really bothers me with it is that even if the site is Canadian, a lot of offers aren’t available in Canada (such as videos).
Kind of dumb lol.
Also, they claim that anyone, anywhere in the world can use this site.
Which again, isn’t so true because a lot of offers aren’t internationally available.
Zoombucks offers pretty much the same ways to earn points as SwagBucks (surveys, offers, videos, radio, tasks, games, search, etc).
There’s nothing really revolutionary here.
SwagBucks : The website is a lot simpler of use than ZB.
While ZB minimum payout is 5$, you can’t cash out your points from Swagbucks in “real” money.
You can redeem points in gift cards and stuff like that, but not in $$$.
Also, it really is more established than it’s concurrent ; older and received a lot more mentions from companies such NBC news.
Take some time to check out these other reviews.
They may offer different insights.
Even if Zoombucks minimum payout is lower than SB, I prefer sticking with the second one.
The thing is, it really is for people who have time to spend and don’t want to invest theirs in an actual business.
It’s unnecessary to spend time on more than 1 site like this.
If I were you, I’d stick with SwagBucks.
Have you used one or both sites ?
If so, what are your thoughts on this review ?
