Swagbucks Team Challenge starts today

Posted January 23

Pack your warmest snow gear and pre-register today! The Swag Slopes Team Challenge begins Monday, January 23rd!

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 (which you can apply to the redemption of gift cards so they don't require as many SB points to cash in).

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.

Swag Up Rebates will be made available by 5pm PT on Friday, January 27th and will expire on Sunday, February 12th at 11:59 pm PT.

Pre-registration is open now at Swagbucks.com through the link on the Swagbucks homepage (top left under the Swagbucks logo).

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 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.

    On the other hand, it appears that the Sledder Shredders have moved up into the lead this morning, so I'll bundle up and be content outside for this week. ;-)

    Ditto what ASCHERER said! I'm on team Sledder Shredder but if they'd asked me I would have elected to stay inside the Lodge by the fireplace, drinking warm beverages. :-)

    Kathy S. - well maybe you will both win this time! Good luck!

    JDouglas I think that team was called the lazy lodgers. lol that's me. It's been about 30 years for me since I skied. Me and my dd are on sled shredders. First time on the same team. I actually like when we are on different teams. Gives one of us a chance to be on the winning team. Oh well.

    Stephanie - I am joining you on team Sledder Shredder but I should be joining JDouglas on the Hot Chocolate Team.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jan 22, 2017

  • jdouglas13 Jan 22, 2017

    Bunny Slope for me as well, but I think I should have been on a team that hangs out in the lodge with hot chocolate or something LOL ;)

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jan 21, 2017

    I'm a Bunny Slopper - which is about right since it's been 20 years since I have been on the slopes!

    Good luck, Stephanie!
