New Swagbucks team challenge & Collector's Bills today!

Posted July 17, 2014



Swagbucks has a fun new Team Challenge and Collector's Bills event starting today! First, you need to join a Mighty Mascot team. See below for the instructions on how to join. A new set of Collector's Bills also starts today! Read on for the details.

Mighty Mascot Team Challenge

Swagbucks is having another fun team challenge, where earning like you do every day can get you a bonus! They're calling it the Mighty Mascot Team Challenge.

To join your team, go to the  Swagbucks website. Then click on the Mighty Mascot Team Challenge link and you will be assigned one of these teams: The Bulldogs, Hawks, Panthers and Knights. I am on the Hawk Team! Until Thursday, July 24th at 11:59am PT, you can earn points for your team by doing the following:

Answer: Get rewarded for giving your opinions and you’ll also contribute 4 pts to your team’s total score.

Encrave: Every time you earn SB interacting with Encrave activities you’ll contribute 3 pts to your team’s total score.

Games: Every time you earn SB playing games you’ll contribute 2 pts to your team’s total score.

Special Offers: Complete offers and earn SB on desktop to contribute 2 pts to your team’s total score.

Search: Search the web and every time you earn SB you’ll contribute 2 pts to your team’s total score.

Watch: Watch your favorite clips on SBTV and you’ll contribute 1 pt to your team’s total score.

Daily Poll: Take the Daily Poll and earn a Swag Buck plus you’ll contribute 1 pt to your team’s total score.

NOSO: Complete your daily NOSO and you’ll contribute 1 pt to your team’s total score.

Mobile: For every SB you earn from SBTV Mobile, Special Offers on Mobile, or EntertaiNOW on mobile, you’ll contribute 1 pt to your team’s total score.

Swag Codes: Every Swag Code you redeem adds 1 pt to your team’s total score.

The Team with the most at the end of the challenge wins, but everyone has an opportunity to earn something extra. If you contribute at least 1 point to your team, you will win bonus SB: 25 SB for the first place team, 20 SB for the 2nd place team, 15 SB for the third place team and 10 SB for the team that comes in last. The top 5 point earners for each team will also get a SB bonus! All bonuses will be paid by 7/28/14.

Collector's Bills

To top off all the SB-earning fun,Swagbucks is also releasing a Mighty Mascots special set of Collector's Bills Thursday, 7/17!

You’ll have the chance to win these collectible bills through the use of Swagbucks Search. Random search wins will feature Mighty Mascot-themed art which will automatically be stored in your account ledger under the Collector’s Bills tab.

There’s nothing more required on your part than to use Swagbucks Search as you normally would. They’ll collect the bills you’ve gathered for you. Mighty Mascot Collector’s Bills can also be won while using the search function on our mobile apps or on the mobile site! What's more, any Collector's Bills you get before 3 pm  on Thursday, July 24th are ALSO worth 2 pts each for the Mighty Mascots Team Challenge!

Once you’ve collected all 5 bills you will immediately receive a 13 SB bonus, on top of all the SB you earn from your Search wins! You’ll have until the end of the day on Thursday, July 24th 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.
