What’s your favorite way to relax after a long day at work?

If you’re like many of us, it’s sitting in front of the TV.

Watching the tube may be relaxing — but what if you could earn money for watching videos? Wouldn’t that be even better?

We’ve discovered a way you could earn an extra $2,700 per year just by watching videos online.

Here’s how to get started…

How to Make Make Money Watching Videos

Swagbucks is a website that pays users to answer surveys, search the internet — and, luckily for you — watch videos.

For performing these tasks, the company pays you in a rewards currency called “SB.”

You can redeem SB for a variety of gift cards to stores like Amazon and Target, or simply get paid cash through Paypal.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Sign up for Swagbucks

If you sign up through the link above, you’ll immediately be taken to the “Watch” page, where you can see the wide array of videos available on the platform.

Everything from the presidential debates to cooking shows to beauty tutorials is right there for your viewing (and earning!) pleasure.

3. Watch and Earn

For each video you watch, you’ll earn SB (as mentioned above, these are points you can eventually turn into cash).

I decided to click on the thumbnail of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani (go ahead, judge me!). Just for watching a series of videos about a fun topic, I earned 2 SB.

Keep doing that — even in the background, while you answer email or browse Facebook — and your points will start stacking up.

There actually are seven different apps within Swagbucks you can use to watch videos, each with a different theme, so there’s something bound to be something to pique your interest.

More specifically, here’s how much you could earn per day:

  • Desktop watch: 500 SB
  • SwagButton: 150 SB
  • nCrave: Unlimited (average: 15 SB)
  • nGage: Unlimited (average: 15 SB)
  • Apps (7): 10 SB each = 70 SB

Total Daily Earnings: 750 SB

Those 750 SB can be redeemed for $7.50 in cash. So, if you watched videos for a whole year (even with a few days off!), you could earn $2,700.

What would you do with an extra $2,700 right now?

Would you pay off a credit card? Go on a cruise? Send your kids to summer camp? The possibilities are endless.
