Swagbucks has a new Team Challenge this week!

Read on for the details so you can earn the bonus Swag Bucks.

Swag Gems Team Challenge

Head to the Swagbucks website and click on the Team Challenge link to find out which team you have been assigned: Diamond Dynasty, Sapphire Society, Emerald Empires or Ruby Regime.

Earn points in the following categories starting September 14th at 12pm EDT to see which gem shines brightest:

* Shop
* Search
* Watch

* Survey Completes
* Survey DQ/OQ
* Swag Codes

The challenge ends at 2:59 am on 9/21. All members who participate and contribute at least 400 points to their team’s total will receive an exclusive Swag Up valued at a 100 SB Swag Up Rebate on their next Gift Card Purchase. That's a great discount!

Also, each team, depending on which place they finish will receive a bonus! 1st place: 25 SB, 2nd place: 20 SB, 3rd place: 10 SB, 4th place: 5 SB. All bonuses will be paid by 5pm EDT on September 21st, 2015.

Good luck everyone! Which team did are you on?

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. You earn points (called Swag Bucks) for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like CVS, Amazon, Starbucks and many more options!

How do you get these super Swag Bucks? 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 Swag Bucks just for doing the searches I used to do using Google. There are also a number of other ways to earn Swag Bucks including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos, playing games, referring friends, using their online shopping portal, special Swag Code events and more.

Swagbucks also posts additional bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. When a Smart Shopper reader finds a code (usually one per day), they post it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for a couple hours usually. Once you find a code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Swagbucks HERE. Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members usually get 30 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE and right now, you can score an additional 70 Swag Bucks for a total of 100 Swag Bucks! To get the bonus Swag Bucks, 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.

    Jdouglas - According to the blog post about the promo, it goes though the 20th and bonus SB will be awarded on the 21. :-)

    Swagups are a discount off the purchase of a gift card. SO a 50 SB Swagup will give you a 50 SB discount on the purchase of any gift card from the rewards section.

    PS thanks for the tip about the buttpaste coupon! :)

    Why did I not think of SB and Twitter? Probably because Twitter is even more of a challenge to me than SB and Windows 8.1 combined LOL. Juuuuust missed it.

    I'm on the Diamond team. I think we're ahead, but not by much. This challenge goes through Friday, right?

    And what are Swagups?

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Sep 15, 2015

    Oh - and please do not post the Twitter Tuesday code here on the blog. We are not allowed to share those codes. Thanks!. :-)

    1 pm: Hurry for a 3 SB code from their Tuesday Twitter ispy challenge. Go to their Twitter page below, click on the link in the first post and then enter the town where the big thermometer is from in all caps for 3 SB. HURRY!

    Ruh Roh - I have a feeling that means we Emeralds have slid downhill to last place since I was last able to check before work this morning.

    Hey, us Sapphires are now in 3rd place instead of last! Woo hoo, a 10 SB bonus instead of 5!! I'm rolling now! :-)

    DH is on the leading team.... again.... Geesh, he has all the luck sometimes. Maybe I can get him to share his 25-cent bonus with me.

    Here's an easy 14 SB points: Go to Swagbucks homepage. Click on Discover on the left. Then click on Radium One on the left (Under the Sponsored Offers section). The scroll down to the Boudreaux’s But Paste offer. Click on it, print the coupon and get 14 SB immediately.

    I had already printed it a month or so ago but I still got the SB again. :-) And it adds 15 points to the Team Challenge total.

    TJ84 - seriously - floor scrubbing should never take priority over deal hunting. lol I do hope your floors are sparkly now. You and Stephanie can wallow in your losing team sorrow together. I am actually on a 2nd place team at the moment - which is shocking. We'll see how long it lasts.
