[Expired] 2800 Swagbucks with Hulu Subscription, $20-$28 Moneymaker

[Update 4/25: Swagbucks is showing just 1500 SB, not 2800 SB anymore.]

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Signup for a Hulu subscription and get 2800 Swagbucks

The cheaper subscription option is for $7.99, so you’ll be paying that amount for the 2800 Swagbucks.

The Fine Print

  • SB Awarded within 30 minutes.
  • Please note: If you cancel your membership within 8 days, your SB may be revoked.
  • Offer applies to new and eligible returning subscribers only.
  • This offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user.

Our Verdict

2800 Swagbucks is worth at least $28, making this a $20 moneymaker (a bit less with sales tax, perhaps). Just make sure to put down on your calendar to cancel after 8 days but before the next month’s charge.

Even those who did previous Swagbucks offers for Hulu are reporting that it’s working this time. Points posted for me instantly. It should tell you if you’re not eligible. Just bear in mind that some people have had problems either with the portal tracking or with Swagbucks deactivating their account for reasons which aren’t clear, so keep the risks in mind.

Also, check if you have a Bank Amerideals for some money back on Hulu as I think people have seen that one periodically. Update: Lots of people are seeing this deal, and if you do the Hulu $7.99 if free, making this a $28 moneymaker. Also keep in mind some other card issuers also use the same backend and are showing the same offer.

If you’re new to Swagbucks then please read our review. You can also get a bonus of up to $5 by using a referral link.

I don’t see any DP saying that people who did the Swagbucks offer before got credit, only people saying who said they had Hulu before.

Thanks Chuck. Posted in about a minute, and I had a Hulu deal for BoA. 25 dollar money maker. First time sign-up.

Same for me. Do you know how long it takes for the BOA deal to post? I’ve never done one of those before.

Did you use the same email as the one linked to your Swagbucks account?

No, mine were different actually, and it still worked.

Thanks for the heads up. I have the same $7.99 cash back offer with PNC, which I find often mirrors BOA offers.

I’m not sure how long for BoE. But it codes as Hulu I pending and I made sure to opt in for Hulu deal. So should be fine.
I used different email address then SB account email.

Worked for me – had Hulu before which was through a Swagbucks offer, resigned up through Swagbucks and used the BankAmerideal. Easy 2500 Swagbucks. Thanks DoC!

It does not let me use this offer.
It says you have used this offer before. So did you sign up again?

“Oops! Looks like you’ve completed this offer.
Many of our advertisers limit the number of times you can complete an offer. But don’t worry, we have a lot of offers, so please go back and try another one.”

Haven’t use swagbucks since my pre-churning days, always fun to grab an easy one. Points posted within a minute.
Thanks Chuck!

Didn’t seem to post after 10 minutes. I had a previous cancelled Hulu account. When I tried to create a new one, I had to retrieve previous password through email. It’s been a while and nothing showed up on my Swagbacks.

logout and login back

thanks doc… Cancelled Hulu 4 days ago after churning Amex offer with 20 $ visa card,, now used same account and renewed for a month… bucks posted instantly.. 🙂

I’ve done a Swagbucks Hulu offer before, and it certainly doesn’t work for me:

“Oops! Looks like you’ve completed this offer.

Many of our advertisers limit the number of times you can complete an offer. But don’t worry, we have a lot of offers, so please go back and try another one.”

Posted instantly. New account. Thanks!

Turned my 2500 SB into PayPal and 45 mins later the cash showed up in my PayPal account! I’ve never gotten a PayPal redemption from them this fast! (Admittedly I haven’t SBd in a while.)

No BoA love for me, unfortunately–just Ford Parts & Service, 1-800-Flowers, and AT&T new line offers. 😛

VERY frustrated right now. Joined Swagbucks with your link, did the Hulu deal and the SB posted to my account. But when I try to cash out to PayPal the site hangs on the “Your PayPal account is not verified” pop-up with the “checking…” still sitting there 30 minutes after I hit confirm.

I’ve had my PP verified for well over a decade with $10k+ moving through it each month, so the problem’s not my account. And there are dozens of messages on the “redeem $25 PayPal award” page stating other users with the same problem. No responses from SB customer service.

You know I love you DoC, but SB is looking incredibly poorly run and not nearly worth the frustration level right now.

I’ve never really had that issue before so can’t comment too much on it unfortunately. Let me know if you’re still having issues in 24 hrs time and I’ll try tweeting out to get it resolved.

Finally received a response to my third Customer Service request (50 hours after submitting my first one). It reads in its entirety…

“Hello Aahz,

“Thank you for reaching out. I would first like to apologize for the auto responses that did not address your specific inquiry. We would also like to remind our members to please keep the conversation and language appropriate when writing in.

“We sincerely apologize for the issues you are experiencing with your PayPal reward. Please know, we are aware of the current issue some members are experiencing and this error is being addressed by our tech team.

“We appreciate your time and hope to have this issue resolved soon. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

“Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you today.”

So, they know that their website can’t do something as simple as send a PayPal payment, have known for at least 5 days based on the comments on the page, but I have no idea when they’ll fix something as vital as paying its users.

I assume the reference to “appropriate language” is in response to the final line of my ticket which reads “If you can’t do something as simple as send a PayPal payment to a decades old verified PayPal account, then I can only assume your entire website is either a scam or maintained by idiots.”

Frankly, this response just reaffirms my belief in the latter.

Lol, I’d refrain from name calling in the future but I can’t help at giggle at your message to them.

You have to verify your Swagbucks account anyway. They will mail a postcard to your physical address with a code. At least that’s how they did it years ago.

Signed up for hulu through this and it’s been over an hour and the swagbucks have not appeared in my account….hoping they appear soon.

SB still haven’t posted…grr It must not have tracked my subscription for some reason 🙁

Bank Of America has a deal that might be STACKABLE if you pay with one of their cards.

Note: Offer is only valid when you pay with your eligible Bank of America® card


Normally the offer is found under “special deal and offers” or under your credit card account section.

hmm to max the hulu sub out for as long as possible – when will the next charge post? is it exactly 30 days from now? is it on the same day every month – so next one will be 3/20 now? … how do you go about cancelling hulu, can you do it online & is it instant? or do you have to call CSR?

thanks for the heads up doc, hope referrals are still working and my new acct got you some SBs!
