Swagbucks Team Challenge starts March 20

Posted March 13

Update: The Team Challenge that was supposed to start March 13 has been moved to March 20. Sorry about the short notice on the date change but they just let us know about it today. See below for updated details and dates.

There's another fun team challenge starting Monday, March 20, to help you earn SB points from Swagbucks!

For those of you who don't know what Swagbucks is, it's a website where you can earn cash back on everyday tasks you do online like shopping, answering surveys, discovering deals, and watching videos.

You can even earn by searching the web! See more details below.


Spring Reading Team Challenge

1. Click HERE to join the challenge and be assigned to a team. Pre-registration should be available on Friday, March 17. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up on this page as well.

2. Starting March 20 at 11 am ET, you'll contribute points to your teams total as you complete different activities on Swagbucks. The activities are also worth SB points so you'll earn those as well.

3. Check back on the page often to see the scores and what you've contribute so far.

All members who participate and contribute at least 400 points to their team’s total will receive a SB bonus in the form of a SB Swag Up Rebate on their next gift card!

Not only that, but if you are a new Swagbucks member and you earn 300 SB before April 1st, you'll get a 300 SB bonus (as long as you've signed up throughthis link.)

Members of the 1st place team will receive a 50 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 2nd place team will receive a 25 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 3rd place team will receive a 10 SB Swag Up Rebate.

Your SB Swag Up Rebate will be made available on Friday, March 24 and should expire on Tuesday, April 4 at 11:59 pm PT.

If you've never used Swagbucks before, now is a great time to join, especially if you participate in the Team Challenge because it's an opportunity to win an extra bonus for trying out the site.

Look below for a new member sign-up bonus!

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 (searching, shopping, watching videos, playing games and more). You earn points called SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, CVS, Lowes, Starbucks, Paypal, Bass Pro Shops, Kohl's and so many more! 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 SB points? There are lots of ways.

* Search online: 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.

* Take surveys on their website

* Answer the daily poll

* Watch videos through their website or multiple mobile apps (I earn about 80 - 100 SB a day doing this)

* Use their online shopping portal (I do most of my online shopping at major retailers who are part of the Swagbucks Shop and Earn program (like,, and more) and earn Swagbucks every time I shop. Just this week, I was credited with 562 SB points (worth $5.62 in gift cards) for an online purchase I made a few weeks ago.

* Play games

* Participate in special Swag Code events

* Enter the daily Swag Code (which we usually let you know about here on the blog each day). Swagbucks posts bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. If you have the Swagbucks Mobile App, it will buzz when there is a new code. When the code becomes available each day, one of us posts it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for an hour usually. Once you get the code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

As I posted above, new members get a 70 SB bonus when you sign up HERE. 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.

    I guess they took it off for time being from their website.

    ascherer - no problem. I think this is the first time they have delayed a challenge after announcing it. Hopefully it will be the last. :-)

  • ascherer Mar 13, 2017

    Thanks for letting us know.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 13, 2017

    I just got an e-mail from my Swagbucks contact:

    "Due to extenuating circumstances, The Spring Reading Team Challenge has been moved out one week, meaning that pre-registration will be open THIS Friday (March 17th) and will run through the following week."

    I have updated the post and pre-registration should be open on Friday. Sorry for any confusion, but I just found out it was pushed to next week myself. I'll put out a reminder on Friday. Thanks for your understanding! :-)

    I can't find the challenge page and it is after 11:00.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 13, 2017

    This is very odd. There is no mention of it anywhere and the post they sent to bloggers has now disappeared as well. I have sent an e-mail to my blogger contact and hopefully he'll shed some light on the disappearing team challenge.

    Not for me either. Just posted the question on the sb's daily poll page but no answers. It's time to start but no way yet.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 13, 2017

    Dukefan1 - It's not working for me either. It looks like they are not going to load the challenge page until it starts. I would suggest trying back at 11 am to join and start earning then.

  • Dukefan1 Mar 13, 2017

    When I click your link, it does not take me to the page to join. Were you able to join?
