Swagbucks Team Challenge: Not too late to join!

Posted October 30, 2015

The Swagbucks Swag Hunt Team Challenge continues through 3 pm Saturday and it is not too late to join a team and earn bonus SB points!

Swag Hunt Team Challenge

Which bone-chilling team will you join? Broom Mates, Bolt Brigade, Pumpkin Patch, Chummy Mummies or Bag-O-Bones? I am on the Chummy Mummies team.

Join the Team Challenge starting Tuesday at 12 noon at To join a team, go to the homepage and click on the Team Challenge link at the top left of the page. Then click on the link to join and you will be assigned a team randomly.

Once you have joined, any points you earn in the following categories will go towards your teams totals:

Mobile Video
Special Offers
Swag Codes (when entered through Mobile App or SwagButton on browser)

All members who participate and contribute at least 200 points to their team’s total (which is easy to do because each activity is worth a bunch of points) will receive an exclusive Swag Up valued at a 25 SB Swag Up Rebate on their next Gift Card Purchase. This is basically a discount on your next gift card redemption.

But that’s not all. Each member of each team, depending on where the team places will receive a SB bonus!

1st place: 25 SB

2nd place: 20 SB

3rd place: 15 SB

4th place: 10 SB

5th place: 5 SB.

The Swag Haunt Team Challenge ends at 3 pm EDT on October 31st.

All bonuses will be paid by 5 pm EDT on November 2nd, 2015.

You will receive your Swag Up on November 18th and it will expire on November 30th.

Good luck and post which team you are on when the challenge starts.

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 SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks and many more options! It's free to join and I have earned a bunch of gift cards in the many years I have been a member.

How do you get these super SB points? 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 SB points just for doing the searches I used to do using Google. There are also a number of other ways to earn SB points including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos, playing games, referring friends, using their online shopping portal, special Swag Code events and more.

Swagbucks also posts additional bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. 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 SB points when you sign up HERE and right now, you can score an additional 70 SB for a total of 100 SB! To get the bonus SB points, 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.

    Hmmm, Faye, maybe you'll help me NOT be on the last-place team! Or not, based on current standings....

    I take this opportunity to apologize to anyone here who has the misfortune to end up on the Pumpkin Patch team. Just remember, there's always next time.



  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2015

    That's great news Stephanie! He's often on winning teams, right? I'd say it's good for me. Not so much for him since I don't remember the last time I was on a winning team. lol. Please apologize to him for me....

  • senglish27529 Oct 27, 2015

    DH is also a Chummy Mummy, Faye. I'd say that bodes well for you both.... :-)

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2015

    I'm in! I'm on the Chummy Mummies Team. Any other mummies out there??

    Good luck everyone!

    I was actually getting worried. I have made my daily goal every day this month and I am hoping to get all 31 days. If the website did not come back up, I would not have made it today. Thank you for getting it working again, Swagbucks!

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Oct 27, 2015

    Yep - the site is back up and running. :-) It won't let me log in, but at least I see the website now. lol
