New Swagbucks team challenge starts today!

Posted August 28, 2014


Swagbucks has a fun new Team Challenge starting today! See below for the instructions on how to join a team and earn bonus Swag Bucks!

To join your team, go to the  Swagbucks website  and click to join a team. They will assign you to a team. I am on the Blue Collars team.

Clash of the Careers Team Challenge Details

Begins: Thursday, August 28th at 12:01am PT
Ends: Thursday, September 4th at 11:59am PT

4 Teams: The Educators, Movers & Shakers, Helping Hands and Blue Collars

Throughout the Clash of the Careers Team Challenge, earn points for your team by winning Swag Bucks through taking Surveys, Watching SBTV, Playing Games, Searching, Mobile, and Redeeming Swag Codes! Each activity equates to a different point value:

Answer: Get rewarded for giving your opinions and you’ll also contribute 6 pts to your team’s total score.
Watch: Every time you earn SB watching SBTV you’ll contribute 5 pts to your team’s total score.
Play: Every time you earn SB while playing games you’ll contribute 4 pts to your team’s total score.
Search: Search the web and every time you earn SB you’ll contribute 3 pts to your team’s total score.
Mobile: Every time you earn SB from SBTV Mobile, Special Offers on Mobile, or EntertaiNOW on mobile, you’ll contribute 2 pt to your team’s total score.
Swag Codes: Every Swag Code you redeem adds 1 pt to your team’s total score.

And of course, everyone that participates and contributes at least 1 point will win bonus Swag Bucks!

1st place – 25 SB
2nd place – 20 SB
3rd place – 15 SB
4th place – 10 SB

And the Top 5 contributors on each team will get: 500, 400, 300, 200 and 100 SB respectively.


Good luck everyone!

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.

    Holy smokes, Faye, I totally missed that this was a week-long challenge! Somehow my brain thought it was one day only! Whew... think I'll take a break and quit worrying. :-)

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Aug 28, 2014

    Swag Code Alert! Code is worth 3 SB and valid until 6pm ET. Code is: MONALISA

    You are still doing a fabulous job compared to me, Stephanie! And this challenge goes on for a whole week, which is a long time. Will be interesting to see how it turns out as more people join teams.

    SWAGCODE ( TWITTER - first 3000 only ) :


  • senglish27529 Aug 28, 2014

    I'm not so sure I like being on the leaderboard, even for the losing team -- it's a LOT of pressure!! :-) I keep clicking and clicking, and checking to see where I am... SECOND now! But leaving for work in a few, plus I know I'm NOT staying up til 3 a.m.... Have maxed out the mobile apps, and will soon max out Swagbucks TV (not mobile). Surveys hate me today, even the ones I get finish without crediting me. Really, though, it's fun, just.... a little nerve-wracking to know I can't keep it going. :-)


  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Aug 28, 2014

    Thanks for the additional info Stephanie! I'll have to kick up my mobile SB use. Congrats again on your high ranking today!

  • senglish27529 Aug 28, 2014

    Oh dear, I can see why the "Movers & Shakers" are in last place... I was in 3rd place for the team when I left to run errands, and when I returned (almost 2 hrs later), I was in 5th place. Wow! Not much happening with the M&S team evidently! OR, they're all on the left coast and aren't awake and Swaggin' yet!


  • senglish27529 Aug 28, 2014

    I have no idea why I'm doing well this time, but I *did* get up at 3 am to sign up for a team, and then started my mobile apps running. I noticed that we get team points for SBTV mobile and EntertaiNow mobile, but not for moviecli.ps or sport.ly. (I run those anyway, because I have an insanely high total goal today!) Also, I typically don't view SBTV on my computer, but since that counts for good points, today, I'm running that as much as possible. Otherwise, I did my 5 rounds of game playing, and have tried to qualify for surveys, but no luck on that so far today. And I still do some special offers (like the jun group videos) since I have a daily goal to meet.

    I've earned over 10,000 swagbucks so far this month, before any of the daily bonuses. It really is my new parttime job. :-)
