Posted July 11, 2016

The Swagbucks Swag-B-Q Team Challenge starts Monday, July 11, at 11:01 am and you can earn up to 40 bonus SB points!

New members: see below for a new member sign-up bonus!

Team Challenge Details

The Swag-B-Q Team Challenge begins Monday, July 11th at 11:01 am EDT and ends at 3pm EDT on Friday, July 15th!

First, you need to join a team on HERE. Once you click to join a team, they will randomly assign you to a team. You can join your team now, even before the event starts on Monday.

I am on the Savory Sliders team. What team are you on?

Then on Monday starting at 11:01 am, you can earn points for your team by doing the activities on the Team Challenge page including watching videos, answering surveys, doing the activities in the Discover tab, entering Swag Codes, buying gift cards and more.

All members who participate and contribute at least 300 points to their team’s total will receive a SB bonus in the form of a SB Swag Up Rebate! Each activity is worth 15 - 50 points for your team so it's pretty easy to get 300 team points.

Members of the 1st place team will receive a 40 SB Swag Up Rebate and members of the 2nd place team will receive a 20 SB Swag Up Rebate.

Your SB Swag Up Rebate will be made available on Friday, July 15th and will expire on Sunday, July 31st. The Swag Up Rebate is a discount that is applied to the redemption of your next gift card using your SB points.

See all the details about the Team Challenge and join a team now at HERE.

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.

    Awesome Dr. D. It would be really cool if we all got the same team and could play as a group.

    I'll do my best. I'm glad it is this week and not next. I may be traveling next week and will have very limited time for SB.
