Swagbucks Halloween Team Challenge starts today

Posted October 24, 2016

Swagbucks has a new Popcorn Factory Halloween Team Challenge starting Monday, October 24th at 11:01 am EST and goes through Friday, 10/28 at 3:00 pm EST.

That gives you a whole week to contribute points to your assigned team. How will you contribute? Watching videos, completing surveys, shopping online? These activities and more will help your team get ahead.

All members who participate and contribute at least 400 SB to their team’s total will receive an SB bonus in the form of a rebate on their next gift card! First place is a 50 SB rebate off your next gift card redemption.

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.

Pre-registration is open now at Swagbucks. Once you get to the Swagbucks homepage, click on the link for the Blog (on the left side of the page) to find the Team Challenge sign up link.

What team are you on? I'm on the Pumpkin Spice Team!

I'll remind you about the Challenge again on Monday morning.

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 Amazon.com, Kohls.com, Walmart.com 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 Swagbucks.com. 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.

    DH is on the Fall Splendor team as well. I'm glad someone in our household will have the opportunity to be on a winning team.... since us Pumpkin Spicers are pretty much stinking up the place so far. But it's still early, there's still a chance for us, right? Right?? ;-)

    AScherer, I haven't heard for sure, but they do typically have a SwagCode Extravaganza on Wednesday of the team challenge weeks. I think I remember ONE time that it didn't fall on a Wednesday. If I were a betting person, I'd put my money on it happening. :-)

    I blew that one. I'm a Fall Splendor.

    Have you heard if Wednesday is going to be the all day thing again?

    jdouglas13 - Welcome to the team! Wouldn't it be fun if we were ALL on the same team?? I know, wishful thinking.

  • jdouglas13 Oct 21, 2016

    Me too! Pumpkin Spice :)

    So glad you will be reminding us on Monday morning, Faye. You know by then I will have totally forgotten. ;)
