Posted June 10, 2014



 Swagbucks has a HUGE new Team Challenge with Swag Code event happening this week! It all starts today, 6/10! First, you need to join a team. See below for the instruction on how to do that. A new set of Collector's Bills also starts today and then on Wednesday, there is a Swag Code Extravaganza!  

3rd Annual Dads vs Grads Team Challenge (Tuesday, June 10th – Friday, June 13th at noon):

Dads vs Grads begins as soon as the calendar changes to Tuesday, June 10th (on the West Coast) and ends at 12pm (noon) PT on Friday, June 13th!

How To Join A Team: To join a team, go to Swagbucks.com here and click on the blog.  You can find a link to their blog on the very bottom of the Swagbucks homepage or on the left side next to the YouTube and Facebook links.

Once you get to their blog, look at the first post for Twitter Tuesday Phrase that Pays. Scroll down half way through that short article and you will see the link to click to join the team challenge.  They will randomly assign you to a team. I am on the Dads team.  What team did you get??

There’s nothing more required on your part than to use Swagbucks Search as you normally would. We’ll collect the bills you’ve gathered for you. If you want to let out a cheer when you’ve found one, that’s totally allowed (and encouraged).

Dads vs Grads Collector’s Bills can also be won while using the search function on our mobile apps!

Once you’ve collected all 4 bills you will immediately receive a 10 Swag Buck bonus! You’ll have until the end of the day on Monday, June 16th to gather them all!

New to Swagbucks?

If you don't know about Swagbucks yet, it's the largest rewards website that gives people free gift cards for the things they do online. You earn points (called Swag Bucks) for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks and many more options!

How do you get these super Swag Bucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (instead of Google). I actually have the Swagbucks toolbar installed on my desktop and it places a search box right on my screen making it super easy to search. Every once in a while, they award Swag Bucks just for doing the searches I used to do using Google. There are also a number of other ways to earn Swag Bucks including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos, playing games, referring friends and more.

Swagbucks also posts additional bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages. When a Smart Shopper reader finds a code (usually one per day), they post it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for a couple hours usually. Once you find a code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Swagbucks HERE . Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members usually get 30 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE but right now, you can score an additional 70 Swag Bucks for a total of 100 Swag Bucks! To get the bonus Swag Bucks, click the text that reads "I have a sign up code" during registration and then enter the code: SMARTSHOPPER to get the bonus. Make sure you use all caps since it is case sensitive.

    Just scored my first Dads Vs Grads Collector (for 9 SB), searching for "WRAL SmartShopper". Thanks Faye! :-)

    Don't hang your head, Faye! I'm working Swagbucks these days as my 2nd parttime job (since I retired from my day job back in November), so I dedicate a block of time to it every day, hoping to reach my 2nd goal every day. Of course, the more I reach my 2nd goal, the higher the 2nd goal goes! But it's putting real money in my bank account, so I keep at it. :-)


  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jun 10, 2014

    Wow, Stephanie - great job so far! Too bad you are on the wrong team! lol I have added a whopping 6 points to my team total so far (hanging head in shame....).

  • senglish27529 Jun 10, 2014

    Grads here! :-)

    I've contributed 86 points to my team so far. It should have been more, but I was nearly through with my SBTV mobile this morning before I saw the FB post with the link to join a team. Better late than never I guess.

    I am on the Dads team. Which teams are you all on?
