Generally each Swagbuck is worth $0.01, or 1 cent, but this can vary depending on the reward you are redeeming. Sometimes rewards will be discounted and this gives each Swagbuck greater value. Let me show you what I mean.
Calculating the value of a Swagbuck
Like I said, generally, each Swagbuck is worth 1 cent. No matter what the reward, Amazon gift card, PayPal cash, etc. this is the normal value. Take a look below at the rewards currently offered in my Swagbucks account
As you can see 3 of these 4 rewards I have circled. The first Amazon gift card is worth $5 and costs 500 SB. This means each Swagbuck is worth $0.01 in this case. For the PayPal cash of $25 it costs 2,500 SB and for the $3 Amazon gift card it costs 300 SB. Both of these are also worth $0.01.
But then as you can see the one Amazon gift card I have crossed out. Thats because it is discounted and this makes each SB worth more than 1 cent.
You would only have to pay 2,200 SB for this gift card worth $25. If you take $25 divided by 2,200 SB you end up getting $0.0112 / SB. Its barely much more but its still more. And occasionally you will come across a deal that is better than this on Swagbucks.
And thats how much a Swagbuck is worth! Read my review on Swagbucks Here and see if its worth bothering signing up for.
