iRazoo vs Swagbucks – Find Out Where You Will Earn the Most!

irazoo vs swagbucks

Finding the best paid survey sites is an important factor to make sure you get the most out of paid surveys.

Two of the big sites are iRazoo and Swagbucks, but it might not be worth joining both of them for you.

I have previously done a review of Swagbucks and a review of iRazoo. In this article, I will instead put iRazoo vs Swagbucks and do a comparison of the two sites.

This comparison will make it easy for you to see which of the sites fits your needs the best, and which site you can earn the most by joining.

In which countries are iRazoo & Swagbucks available?

Let us start with one of the most important factors when it comes to finding a good paid survey site or a good GPT site (get-paid-to).

That is the country you live in. This plays a huge part in what opportunities a survey site is offering. Some sites are not even available in some countries.

So let us look at where iRazoo and Swagbucks are available, so you can right away see if one of them or both of them are not relevant to you.

iRazoo availability:

You can, in theory, join iRazoo no matter where you live. That is one of the advantages of this platform.

However, the number of opportunities can vary greatly depending on the country you live in. There are by far the most opportunities for people living in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

You can join more or less from all other countries as well, but in many, there will be limited opportunities.

Swagbucks availability:

Swagbucks is unlike iRazoo not available worldwide. It does, however, offer really good opportunities in the countries where it is available. These countries are at the moment the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, and India.

As mentioned, you can join iRazoo no matter where you live, whereas Swagbucks is limited to certain countries. However, even though you might be able to join iRazoo from any country, it will in many cases not offer a lot of opportunities, but I will go into this below.

If you are not from one of the countries mentioned above, you can instead check out the list of the best survey sites in YOUR country.

The opportunities to earn compared

which site has the best opportunities

Both iRazoo and Swagbucks are what is called GPT sites (get-paid-to), as they do not only offer paid surveys but also offer many other ways to earn.

So let’s compare the options each of them offer and the earning opportunities.

If you just purely look at the number of options the two sites have, they are very similar. Both of them offer the following methods to earn: paid surveys, watch videos, surf the internet in their own browser, take offers from their offer wall, invite friends, play games, daily goals, and free promo codes.

Swagbucks offers a couple of extra things like for example some great opportunities for getting cash back when shopping online and a free reward on your birthday.

I will not go into all the details about what each of these ways to earn means, as I have already written a lot of details about this is my reviews of each of the sites, so if you want more details about each of the earning methods, you can check out the reviews of the two sites through the link at the beginning of this article.

But from looking at this overview, it could seem like the sites are very similar, but there are some big differences you need to be aware of.

Which site has the best opportunities?

iRazoo definitely offers a lot of ways to earn, but compared to Swagbucks it does in my opinion not offer as good opportunities.

Even though it offers many daily opportunities, it does in many cases not pay as well for your time as Swagbucks does. It does not mean it cannot be worth using the site, and especially the surveys and offers can be worth it. But if you want to prioritize your time, you can, in general, get better rewards for your time on Swagbucks compared to on iRazoo.

An example is the daily goals, where you on iRazoo can earn up to $2 per month and on Swagbucks up to $3 per month as a bonus just by being active enough.

Another example is that you by inviting friends to iRazoo can make up to 80 cents per friend you invite, and on Swagbucks you will get the equivalent of 10% of what your friend earns, which can end up being a nice amount of money.

These are just a few examples, but it is an indication that even though you can make some nice extra money on iRazoo, you can make more for your time on Swagbucks.

On Swagbucks you will also get a $5 joining bonus, where you on iRazoo will get around $1 joining bonus.

You can click here to get the $5 joining bonus for Swagbucks, as you need to join through an invitation link to get this bonus. You will find such an invitation link on the Swagbucks review the link will take you to.

Payout methods compared

payout methods compared

What payout methods a GPT site is offering is very important, and luckily both Swagbucks and iRazoo offer good options in this area.

On both platforms, you get paid in points that can then be exchanged into cash or gift cards.

However, the point system on iRazoo is pretty confusing, and it is difficult to get a quick overview of what you get paid to for example take a survey. Whereas on Swagbucks, it is more straight forward.

When that is said, both sites offer great ways to get your rewards out, as they both offer PayPal as a payout method, which is my personal favorite method.

iRazoo also offers some gift cards, if you live in the US or Canada, but for all other countries, it only offers PayPal. Swagbucks offer a good amount of different gift cards, and compared to iRazoo, the selection of gift cards is a lot bigger, and this option is available in all countries.

But if you like me prefer PayPal, both sites offer equally good payout methods.

Which site is the most user-friendly?

How easy a site is to use, is of course also important. Sites that are not user-friendly just take too long to use and can waste a lot of your time.

In general survey and GPT sites that have many opportunities are of course a little more difficult to navigate than sites that only have a few opportunities.

Therefore it just takes a little time to learn to navigate both iRazoo and Swagbucks. None of them are however difficult to navigate.

However, iRazoo’s point system makes it a lot less user-friendly than Swagbucks.

I do not like it when sites make the point system too complicated and make it difficult to quickly see how much you will get for taking a survey or offer.

The sites that have complicated systems have in my experience also lower rewards, but it can be difficult to realize because of the complicated system – this also seems to be the case for iRazoo, whereas Swagbucks has a very straightforward point system.

A very user-friendly thing both sites offer is an app. Being able to take surveys, offers, etc. through an app makes it easy to earn on the go and when you have a little break during the day. So great that both platforms have their own app.

Should you choose iRazoo or Swagbucks?

swagbucks compared to irazoo

I hope this comparison of iRazoo vs Swagbucks has already given you a good idea about which site offers the best opportunities for you.

Swagbucks does, of course, have the limitation that it is only available in some countries, whereas you can join iRazoo no matter where you live.

I do, however, not really think the opportunities on iRazoo are good enough. So if you live in a country where Swagbucks is available, I would strongly recommend choosing that over iRazoo.

If you do not live in a country where Swagbucks is available, or if you want to join more great survey and GPT sites, I would still not really recommend iRazoo. In my experience, there are a lot of sites that are more user-friendly and offer better opportunities to earn.

    • Well, Swagbucks actually just recently opened up so it is available in more or less all countries. But it only really has good options in the countries mentioned in this article.

      But if you use VPN or anything like that to make it look like you are from a different country than you are, it is fraud and they will, of course, not pay you.

  1. Thanks for the great review I honestly had never heard of either of these programs (must be living under a rock).

    I am looking to make extra money online and after reading I am wondering with amounts like $1 and 80c can a part-time wage be made this way?

    Also do you have to pay to join either of them? Not sure if I missed that in the review.

    There seem to be so many scam sites out there, but from your review these look legit, obviously, neither are saying you’ll earn $1,000 in 30 minutes!

    Appreciate your time if you could reply.

    • Hi Heidi,

      Depending on the country on live in and the time you put in, it should be possible to make somewhere between $100-$1000 on paid surveys, if you join several sites. So it can give some nice extra money, but not enough to make a living from.

      Both Swagbucks and iRazoo are free to join, as are all legit survey sites. There are some that try to charge a joining fee, but these are usually scams, where you will end up losing money instead of making any.

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.

      All the best,

  2. I think I will need to use iRazoo since I can’t use sawbucks at all, because I don’t live in one of these countries. However, I may travel there and get a new account. But I need to return my home country after that so can I use Swagbucks like that?

    • Hi Furkan,

      No you can use Swagbucks in countries where it is not available, even if you sign up in another country. It will detect the country you are in when you enter the site.

      But I know Swagbucks are looking into expanding to other countries, so maybe it will become available in your country in the future. 

      All the best,

  3. Hallo there,

    I have been working on swagbucks for a good while now and it has been paying well thus far. After having irazoo recommended to me, I decided I should compare them to see which one is on top.

    And I see that irazoo has its own great perks. I am going to join it as well and see how well it works for me. Thanks for valuable information on your post. Cheers.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts Dave. Once you have tested iRazoo as well, you are welcome to come back here and share how you find it compared to Swagbucks. Would be great to hear your opinion about this as well.

      All the best,

  4. I really enjoy posts such as these because most of the time all you can rely on is the information these sites give you, but when you have a broader insight like you’ve demonstrated it really is helpful.
    Thank you 🙂

    • Thank you very much for your feedback and the kind words Kelly. I appreciate you talking the time to give the feedback and happy to hear you like the article.

      All the best,

    • Sorry to hear that Steve.

      Usually you can go to your account settings in your Swagbucks account and set what kind of notifications you want. If that is not possible, you can unsubscribe in the email you receive.

      Hope this helps.

      All the best,

        • Great idea to focus on the surveys and offers that pays more than 50 points Steve. Prolific is definitely a good site – it does however not offer very many opportunities compared to others sites, but still a good site to join for sure.

          Have you tried PineCone Research? If you like going for the high paying surveys, this is one of the highest paying ones, as you get $3 per survey. It is however only available in some countries, so it depends where you live, if you can join or not.

          All the best,
