For my next review, I’ll be tackling SuccessBux. If you’ve heard about this site, and were wondering if it’s worth your time, read my SuccessBux review! I’ll be telling you whether SuccessBux is legit or not.
How to Earn on SuccessBux
Most of us will be familiar with GPT (“get paid to…”) sites. Well, SuccessBux is a bit different. Like GPT sites, you earn rewards on SuccessBux by doing simple tasks.
You earn on SuccessBux by watching videos. You go on your dashboard and find available videos for you to watch. You’ll know beforehand how much watching each video will cost. When you open a video, you will first have to click an image to confirm that you’re actively watching.
Every video you open will require you to click on images. This isn’t a passive earning method. On some GPT sites, you can leave videos running on all day while you do your laundry. This is not one of those. Earning on SuccessBux requires active participation.
Most of the videos contain ads - usually for get-rich-quick schemes. Remember, SuccessBux is not responsible for the content or legitimacy of these ads. I wouldn’t recommend you follow any of the links in those ads. Just watch the video, earn from it, and leave it.
The site has a list of offers, like free trials for various subscription services. Whenever you take those offers, you earn. Take note, some of these require you to give your credit card info. If you take any offers, make sure you cancel your membership before the paid subscription kicks in. Otherwise, your card might get charged.
Also, some of the offers were for, oddly enough, online casinos. To earn from SuccessBux, you will first have to make a deposit in the online casino (money you bet with). I’m not really into gambling, and this doesn’t look like a very good idea. If you’re into gambling, more power to you. But if you’re not, you could actually end up losing more money than you make.
Listening to Radio
They’ve got an online radio station. You earn for every ten minutes of listening, and every ten minutes, a CAPTCHA test will pop-up for you to complete. This confirms that you are indeed tuned-in.
You can also earn by referring friends or family to the site. Your commission starts at 10% with your free membership, and increases as you move up to the paid membership levels.
Wait a Sec Paid Membership?!
Yep, standard membership is free. But you can upgrade your membership by paying the following fees:
Standard – free
Premium - $19 for 12 months
Silver - $34 for 12 months
Golden - $29 for 6 months; $49 for 12 months
Elite - $39 for 6 months; $64 for 12 months
Ultimate - $29 for 3 months; $49 for 6 months; $67 for 12 months
Moving up increases your earnings from referrals (up to 100% on higher levels) and lowers the cash out fee (Yes, there’s a cash out fee, unfortunately).
Most of the perks are related to referrals, and I kind of see what they’re doing here. Your earnings for watching videos and taking offers won’t be very high (more on that later). They’re hoping you make referrals your main earning method. When you pay for upgraded membership, you become more invested in their system, meaning you’d be more likely to work harder to get people to join the site. And more members is exactly what SuccessBux wants. This isn’t shady per se; it’s just pretty shrewd.
My Hot Take: I get the impression that they’re positioning referrals as the main earning methods on this site. I won’t call it a pyramid scheme, but I do get a bit of that vibe here. There’s nothing bad about this, but be aware of what you’re getting into with this site.
Earning Potential on SuccessBux
The earnings per task isn’t so great, which reinforces my theory that they really want you to rely on referrals for earning. Anyways average earning for tasks are as follows:
Watching videos - $0.001 on the “high” end and a measly $0.0001 on the low end
Listening to radio - $0.005 for every ten minutes
I know using these sites aren’t a means to get rich - at best, they’re good for pocket money. But the earnings for the above tasks are so low, I wonder if they’re even worth the electricity and bandwidth you’re using.
My Hot Take: To earn decent money on SuccessBux, you will have to play the referrals game. And that means paying to upgrade your membership in order to maximize your earnings. Personally, this isn’t my thing. But I’ll let you decide on this one.
Payout Options on SuccessBux
There’s a $1 minimum withdrawal, and your earnings are sent either via Paypal or Payza. I like the low minimum payout, but be warned, there’s a 2% processing fee for the standard membership level and 1% for all other levels.
My Hot Take: Having to pay a processing fee sucks. In my opinion, a member shouldn’t have to pay for something a site needs to account for in the first place. To add insult to injury, they can’t even nix that processing fee altogether, even when you’re paying up to $67 a year for a top-tier membership!

The Verdict: Legit or Scam?
SuccessBux is legit. But you need to know that when you use this site, you need to play the referrals game to make it worthwhile. Personally, I’m not into that. I’d prefer earning from both tasks and regular referrals. But if you like networking and referring people, you might have a better time on this site.
