We all love going to the movies during the summer. Whether you prefer the biggest blockbusters or the sweetest romantic comedy, Swagbucks can get you into the movies for free! Swagbucks is a rewards site that gives you points called SB for things like searching, watching videos & browsing articles. You redeem those SB for gift cards to places like Amazon, PayPal — and yes, even to the movies.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Swagbucks and primarily run the Swagbucks TV apps and earn FREE Amazon gift cards to pay for gifts for friends and family every birthday and Christmas, plus lots of goodies for me. I know several people who are cashing out for Paypal to help pay for their summer vacation!

Here’s how Swagbucks can help you can turn watching videos online into your watching movies in the theater for free: Earning 1,500 SB gets you enough for a $15 movie gift card from AMC or Regal Cinema! Whether you’re on the go, at home, or stuck at a desk, here’s how you can get your $15 movie gift card (or any available gift card of choice) in just 1 week:

SBTV mobile on Android & iOS: Earn up to 36 SB per day watching everything from food videos & news to Hulu clips & music videos – 252 SB

Moviecli.ps app on Android & iOS: Get 10 SB per day watching the latest movie trailers – 70 SB

EntertaiNOW app on Android & iOS (US only) – You can also earn another 10 SB per day checking out news on movies and TV shows, behind-the-scenes interviews and celebrity gossip – 70 SB

SBTV on Desktop: Watch a little bit of everything, including Hulu clips & music videos, but with a higher earning cap of 150 SB per day – 1,050 SB

When you have a specific SB goal (like a $15 AMC or Regal Cinema gift card) and a plan of action, you’ll get gift cards faster and check out the newest action-comedy or Oscar-nominated drama without spending extra money. There are even more ways to earn SB online, so take a look around and see what works best for you. You don’t have to wait until the next blockbuster comes out to start saving up with Swagbucks!

    Any tips on what sections are best for SBTV desktop? Takes me FOREVER to get through 10 videos. Is there a way to compile a “favorites” or for them to auto play?

      After each video runs for 32 seconds you get the credit and can move on the next one. For shorter videos, check the home and garden geobeats or monkeyseehome videos. Hope that helps!

    I can’t find the moviecli.ps app in the Apple App Store. Is it called something else or another way I can search for it?

      There are two that aren’t available on Apple yet.

    Thank you so much for all of your help! I just downloaded the swagbucks app and it is requiring a credit card. I am always a little hesitant to put in a credit card. Do you know why they need that?

      Did you download Swagbucks local? That app gives you points when you use your connected credit card when you dine out at select restaurants. The basic Swagbucks app and the TV apps do not require credit cards.

        So glad I asked Nicole! Yes I did get the swagbucks local! I think I must of downloaded the wrong one! I would rather have the basic! I’m not sure I see the basic on my apple store.
