How To Earn Points (Easy Way): 

ZDaily provides you with a random amount of points each day.  Click on ZDaily under Win ZBucks to see if you win, if you do you will be required to fill in a captcha code to receive the points.  You will usually win at least once per day.

Offer Wall Visit is worth one point every day guaranteed.  Simply click Earn ZBucks and fill in the captcha code to be awarded a point.

ZoomBonus is a button that is provided on the Zoombucks toolbar.  Simply install the toolbar and click the button each day to earn 1 point.  You will not earn more than 1 point per day by clicking the button.

Zoombucks has a Search feature to win points.  Use it as you would any search engine.  You can win multiple times a day using the Search feature, each time is random and not guaranteed.  Point amounted earned are random.  Clicking on the search result links will not increase your odds of winning in the future.

Front Page Videos can be found on the front page right above "Recently Credited Offers".  If videos are available, a link will be provided and a popup will show up. Watch the video, worth 2-3 points, close the popup and click the link until no more videos are available.  If no videos are available when visiting the front page, the video link will not be present.  Simply watch each video to completion for the points.

Video Rewards are videos you can watch to earn 2-4 point for each video.  You can find Video Rewards under Earn ZBucks.  At most per day you can get is five videos, some days you might not get any videos to watch. In order to get credited for watching the video, two numbers will randomly scroll across the screen during the video. At the end of the video, you will need to enter the two numbers, in any order, to get paid. If you mess up, don't worry, you can watch the video as many times as you want to get it right. Some videos also enter you into sweepstakes for various prizes. The videos are instantly credited to your account.  The videos are provided by AdGenesis.

Gambit Videos are also offered on Zoombucks.  Videos may not be offered every day, but when they are they are worth 1-2 points depending on the advertiser.  Watching the videos are a very easy way to earn points and are highly recommended.  To find Gambit Videos, click on Earn ZBucks, find the Gambit tab, if there are videos available there will be a tab under Gambit called Videos.  Completely watch the video to be credited.
Tip: Some videos may be watched more than once, cycle through and keeping watching until the videos are no longer available.

Peanut Labs Videos can be found under Special Offers, much like Gambit Videos.  Click on Earn ZBucks, find the Peanut Labs tab, look throughout the offers they have available.  Peanut Labs Videos will typically be worth 2-3 points making them easy to find.  Clicking on a link will open up a window within Peanut Labs to watch the video.  Completely watch the video to be credited.
Tip: Some videos may also be found on Gambit and can be credited again through that offer.

Click on Earn ZBucks, find the RadiumOne tab, look throughout the offers they have available.  RadiumOne Videos are not as often videos as under Peanut Labs or Gambit.  Some RadiumOne Videos might not be available under Zoombucks even though they might be offered at other GPT sites.  If videos are present, they will usually have the video loaded on the offer page, all that you need to do is click to start the video and watch until completion to be awarded 1 point.
Tip: Some videos may be hidden on later pages, be sure to check all the offer pages to find all available videos.

Click on Earn ZBucks, find the Matomy or Super Rewards tab, they will each have a tab called Videos.  Matomy Videos and Super Rewards Videos are not as often as Peanut Labs, Gambit or even RadiumOne.  Do not be surprised if you only find one or two videos a month, but they are easy points when available.

How To Earn Points (Hard Way):

Zoombucks has a way to earn points playing Games.  The Games are not hard but in order to get points you must have a top score which can prove to be difficult.  Find Games under Win ZBucks.

Tasks can be completed to earn points.  Tasks usually take more time, require you to do searches and you have to do a good job at them.  As you work on a task, your accuracy will go down if you answer incorrectly or perform an inadequate job.  If you go below a certain threshold, you will not be credited for doing the task.  Find Tasks under Earn ZBucks.

Zoombucks also has Daily Surveys which are more time consuming but offer a larger amount of points when completed.  Find Daily Surveys under Earn ZBucks.  I do not partake in surveys because of how long they take, but also the fact that even after you've spent time answering questions you might not "qualify" to finish the survey and be credited.

There are many more ways to earn points, especially by going through all the offers found under Earn ZBucks.  Some may be easy, some may be hard, some may never credit.  How much you earn through these offers will depend on how much effort you want to go through.
