Swagbucks Team Challenge this week

Posted February 15


Here's another fun team challenge 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.


Chocolate Dipped Team Challenge

The Chocolate Dipped Team Challenge begins Monday, February 13 at 11 AM and ends on Friday, February 17 at 3 PM ET.

Here's how you can join the challenge:

2. Starting Monday, February 13 at 11 am ET, complete different activities on Swagbucks and earn SB points. By completing the qualified activities, you also contribute points to your teams total during the week.

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 new members who earn 300 SB before March 1st get a 300 SB bonus when you sign up HERE.

Members of the 1st place team will receive a 50 SB Swag Up Rebate.

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.

    Observant, there was no Extravaganza on Wednesday (as there often is during Team Challenge weeks). So, you didn't miss it.

  • Kathy S. Feb 15, 2017

    Oh no, Faye, we seemed to have fallen into last place. We can still come up. We are not too far behind yet.

    Kathy S. - YAY! I am not alone anymore. :-)

  • Kathy S. Feb 15, 2017

    Milk Chocolate for me too Faye.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Feb 15, 2017

    ascherer - they just changed it so they no longer auto play. It's a shame.

    Right now the White Choc team is in first place and milk choc is in 2nd. I can see why since apparently everyone but me is on the White choc team. lol

    Has anyone else noticed the nCrave Auto Tours are no long playing on auto? It just started happening to me within the past week or so? I only use my laptop and force a delete of my cookies and history multiple times a day. Thanks

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Feb 13, 2017

    Congrats on joining the official blog team. I'll be over here eating snickerdooble blondies all by myself....
