If you have heard about TimeBucks, you probably know it is an online reward portal and survey site.
But is TimeBucks legit and a site that can really make you some extra bucks, or is it a scam that is just a waste of time?
I have tested the platform thoroughly over a period of several years.
In this TimeBucks review, I will go over all the details about what the site has to offer, what to be aware of, and what my experiences with the site are and show you some Timebucks tricks to get the most out of the site if you decide to join.
After reading this review, you will be able to see if it is worth for you to join, or if it is better for you to spend your time on other sites.

What is TimeBucks and what does the site offer?
TimeBucks is an online reward portal, where you can earn money in several ways. This is also known as a GPT (get-paid-to) site.
It is owned by Australian Clearing Pty Ltd but it is still available worldwide but we will go more into the availability later.
Many of the offers it has are similar to other paid survey sites and online reward portals, but it also has some features that are unique and that I have not seen on other sites. Whether these are great opportunities or distractions depend on what you are looking for.
One thing that is important to know is that TimeBucks continuously develop and add new earning methods. Some times they also remove methods if they find out they are not working out very well. When I first joined, it, for example, had a grow a beard challenge and you could earn by taking selfies.
These methods are not there anymore but they have then introduced other ways to earn instead. So just be aware that there might even be more options than what you find in the review here even though I try to keep it updated.
But let’s go over what opportunities the site offers one by one so you can see if it will be worth it for you or not:
Option 1 – Paid surveys:
TimeBucks offers quite a good amount of paid surveys. You can take surveys through a number of different providers while being logged into and get paid into your TimeBucks account.
Most of the surveys are offered through survey routers or offers walls. The great thing about this is that you can find a lot of surveys in most countries. The disadvantages are that it sometimes can take some patience to find the surveys you qualify for.
But the survey options are actually pretty good on TimeBucks.
Above you can, for example, see that the reward for taking a survey through Your Survey is $0.875. These surveys are offered on many GPT sites but this is actually one of the highest rewards you can find for them.
Exactly how many surveys that are available will, however, vary depending on the country you live in even though it has surveys for most countries. But if you do not have a lot of surveys available, there are other ways to earn on TimeBucks.
Option 2 – Watch videos:
TimeBucks offers a few different ways to earn by watching videos in the video section.
One of them is the same as most other GPT sites where you have to watch 3 videos + ads within a certain topic. And they then also have small separate videos where you will get paid when you have seen a certain amount of seconds.
In a way, it is an easy way to make a bit extra. But the rewards for this option are very low, so not an option to use to really boost your earnings, but nice to earn a bit, if it is a video you would like to watch anyway.
Also, what I like is that the conditions for each video and what it takes a very clear on TimeBucks. This makes it easy for you to see right away if it will be worth your time or not.
Option 3 – Offerwalls:
There is an offerwall section with access to a number of different offers. This can, for example, be to get paid to download apps, to sign up for a website, to test a product for free, etc.
The image above just shows a few of the offerwalls you can find as Timebucks gives access to around 12 walls last time I counted and each of them gives access to many offers.
Some of these offers have really good rewards. Most of them are also offered through other survey sites like PrizeRebel or ClixSense, so if you, in general, prefer using one of these sites, you can probably find the offers there as well.
Option 4 – Content options:
The content tab inside Timebucks gives access to a few different ways to earn.
The click part is, for example, to click small ads and visit a website for a certain number of seconds. It can also be to like TimeBucks Facebook page and more.
The slideshows are where you have to watch 10 pages of a slideshow to get paid. This can be quite entertaining as there are some great slideshows for example about come crazy puppy pictures, best MMA fights, shocking facts about celebrities, worst tattoos ever, etc.
The News tab is where you can go to a News article and follow the instructions there about how much of it you have to read. And the sponsor tab sometimes has ads you can click and get paid for.
Most of the options in this section will not make you a lot of money, but many of us probably often watch slideshows, News, etc. like this anyway. If you enjoy content like this, this is an option to get paid a little to watch it.
Option 5 – Make money on TikTok
There is a whole TikTok section in the TimeBucks earning area.
Here you can get paid to do differnt small tasks on TikTok.
Mainly, you can earn by posting duets where you use other videos in these duet videos.
Just be aware there are quite strict rules you have to follow so make sure you read the terms carefully before you start. You get a screen with the conditions you have to agree to before you can even get access to this section so they are easy to find.
Each of the TikTok options also has a thorough tutorial video inside Timebucks so make sure to watch these if you want to earn this way.
How much you can earn with this option depends on a quality score you will get once you connect your TikTok account with your Timebucks account. It will not be a way to make a lot of money, but if you love using TikTik, this can be a fun way to earn.
Option 6 – Micro-tasks
You can get access to Figure Eight tasks through TimeBucks. These are small online micro-tasks like, for example, data entry.
The tasks do not take long but also be aware that in the beginning, the rewards are also not very high. But if you are consistent, you will be able to earn trust and get access to higher paying tasks.
Option 7 – Get cash back when shopping online
Personally, I think it is great when GPT sites have a cashback option. This means you can get cash back if you shop online in certain shops they have partnered with.
TimeBucks also has this option, so it can be a great way to earn/save some money if you are about to shop online anyway.
TimeBucks does not have as many options as the top cashback sites, but it does have some good offers. So if you ever shop online, it is a good idea to check out this section.
Option 8 – Invite people to join:
You can invite other people to join TimeBucks and get paid a commission for this. You will get paid in 5 levels. That means that you will also get commissions for the people that your referred people refer. Not a high commission, but a little is also nice.
If you invite a lot of people that also end up inviting a lot, it can build up and be a great way to earn. Because it has 5 levels, it makes it a pretty good referral program compared to many other similar sites.
So if you join and like using it yourself, it is a very good idea to also start inviting others to join. They will earn the same whether they join through your link or not as the commissions are paid out of TimeBucks’ pockets.
Option 9 – Free money roll
Once every 24 hours, you can click a button and roll and you will then get a random number.
This number determines how much free money you will get according to the table below.
Most of the numbers will, of course, give you one of the small prizes. But it is still free money and only takes a few seconds to do. And if you are lucky, you can win some good prizes as well.
Just be aware that to be able to do this roll you have to complete at least 10 other tasks on TimeBucks the previous 24 hours. But there are plenty of tasks so that should not be too difficult and then using this roll is a good extra chance to earn.
Option 10 – Solve capthcas
Solving captcha is also an earning option on Timebucks.
You basically have to solve some kind of small data task. In the example below you, for example, have to mark which part of the image you could potentially jump through.
The great thing about these tasks is that you can do it an unlimited number of times.
However, the tasks are not that easy and they do take some effort – especially at first when you get used to it. And you will have to solve 20 captchas to earn $0.003 so it is one of the lowest paying tasks on Timebucks.
So unless you have a lot of extra time, it is probably better to focus on some of the other options, in my opinion.
Option 11 – Advertise:
You can use TimeBucks to advertise. The options you have here vary but you can, for example, promote YouTube videos.
So if you have a YouTube video you would like to get more views, you can promote it here. You will choose how many views you would like, from which countries, age group and more and then pay for this. Other members will then get paid to view your video.
Personally, it is not a way I use to promote my videos as it can also have some risks. But if you know what you are doing and are aware of the risks, then this can be an easy way to advertise your videos for a certain audience.
Option 12 – Daily contest:
Every day, the top 5 earners on Timebucks will be rewarded with extra cash. First place will get $20 down to $1 for the fifth place.
And it is not that difficult to earn enough to be in the top, so this can be a great way to make a very nice extra reward.
Below you can see a short video tour and review I made of Timebucks, so you can see for yourself how it looks like after you join. Just be aware that some of the earning methods have changed since I created the video but the overall usage of it is still the same:
How do you get paid?
As you can see, TimeBucks has quite a few options to make a bit of money. Every time you do a task on the platform, you will get paid in dollars. But once you have made money, how can you then use them or get them?
TimeBucks offers a few different payout methods at the moment which are Bitcoin, Payeer, AirTM, bank transfer, Skrill, and Neteller.
They used to also offer PayPal but that is no longer an option as PayPal apparently does no longer support sites like Timebucks. Personally, I love when survey sites pay through PayPal, as it is such an easy way to get your rewards, but since it was removed as an option TimeBucks has introduced many other great payment methods.
So it is still easy to get your earnings in cash if you wish to or gift cards if you choose an option like AirTM. So in a way, the payout methods have become more flexible and they now even offer payment via bank transfer (via TransferWise) which is quite unusual for a GPT site.
You can get paid once you have earned $10 which is a nice low payout threshold. It is nice to be able to request a payout fairly quickly and not wait until you have earned a lot more, which is the case on some other survey sites.
Your reward will automatically be paid out once you have reached the payout threshold, and Timebucks process these payouts once a week. However, if you want to wait until you have accumulated more money, you can also choose to hold your payment until you manually ask to get the money out.
So some pretty good and flexible payout options and conditions TimeBucks has. I have personally been paid by them several times and it all works fine, in my experience.
How much money can you make?
How much money you can make depends on a number of different things. First of all, of course, how much time you will spend on TimeBucks, and how many of the opportunities you wish to use. It will also depend on where in the world you live.
Some countries will have more surveys and wall offers than others. But because there is such a big variety of ways to earn, and many of them do not depend on your location, it is possible for everyone to make some extra cash.
It will, however, be easier for you to earn, if you live in a country where there are regular surveys and offers on the offerwalls. And no matter where you live, you can also invite others to join which can be a great way to earn extra.
But be aware that as with any other survey site, you should not expect to make a living from it. You can make some nice extra money on the side, but if you expect to become rich, you will be disappointed.
Can you use Timebucks on mobile?
Being able to use a GPT site on mobile gives a lot of advantages – especially on a site like Timebucks that offers a lot of small and easy tasks you can do whenever you have a bit of time during the day.
There is, however, not a Timebucks app you can download and use. But you can just open Timebucks through your browser on any device and it is optimized for mobile.
Some tasks (like, for example, TikTok tasks) are only possible to do on mobile. So it is definitely an advantage to also check out the options Timebucks offers on mobile.
Who can join?
No matter where in the world you live, you can join TimeBucks. Which opportunities that are available will vary, depending on the country you are from.
But compared to other sites, it has a large number of opportunities even if you live in a country where there are not a lot of survey opportunities.
The content you can watch, Instagram, inviting people, free roll, Figure Eight tasks, and the videos you can watch will be available for most countries. And you can even find surveys and offers in most countries as well even though it might take a bit of patience in some countries.
Can you get support?
Yes, you can get support if you need help. TimeBucks has a support service that fairly quickly gets back to you if you need help.
I have tested this myself, so I know the support staff is friendly and good at getting back to you, which is important for any service or platform.
TimeBucks is definitely NOT a scam but is a legit GPT site with quite a lot of earning options.
But to help you find out if this is then worth it for YOU, let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons for TimeBucks so you can get a better overview before deciding if it is for you or not.
- Big variety of opportunities
- Possible to join and get opportunities from more or less all countries
- Some extra features that you do not find on other sites
- Pretty user-friendly
- Pays in cash
- Some opportunities have low rewards
In general, I am pretty positive about TimeBucks, and it is definitely a legit site. I think it is great that it offers some interesting and different opportunities, and also offers these for countries, where it is usually difficult to get many opportunities on survey sites.
Some of these do, however, give quite low rewards. But many of the things, are things we spend time doing online anyways, and then it can be great to get paid a bit to do.
So if it will be worth it for you to join depends on what your expectations are, and if you find the opportunities on TimeBucks interesting.
How do you sign up?
It is very easy to sign up. Just click the button below, and you will get to TimeBuck’s website where you can sign up. It takes a few seconds to sign up.
You just have to fill in your email, and a password and you will then receive an email you have to confirm. You can also choose to sign up with your Facebook account.
If you have any comments, questions, or any experiences with TimeBucks yourself, I would love to hear from you in a comment below.
- Money/time ratio
TimeBucks has some interesting features that are not available on other sites. Also, it has a good amount of opportunities for most countries, so no matter where you live, you will always find opportunities to earn here.
However, not all opportunities have very high rewards. But overall a site that can be worth joining and with a bit of effort it gives quite good earning opportunities.
