There are several ways to earn with Swagbucks and collectively could earn you beyond US$1000 each month, however, the paid search feature is the only passive and effortless income method. Imagine how many web searches you would conduct on average each day, and then imagine how much greater it would be if you could actually earn tax-free money while doing it.
The reason why I can safely suggest that Swagbucks earnings are tax-free is because every time you redeem paypal increments of 5/10/25/50/100/200 US dollars, it's merely classified as a reward, not income. For this reason, it's also worth mentioning that if you do not have working rights in Australia, there is no wrong-doing by participating in the Swagbucks program.
Before creating a Swagbucks account, it's important to make sure that your signup email address matches your paypal email address. Once you have created an account, set Swagbucks as your default browser, and that's it. Paid searches are completely random, so don't expect earnings on every search. From my personal experience, each paid search ranges from US$0.05 - US$0.30. Add the Swagbucks button for additional offers
