$26 Moneymaker with Swagbucks and Gillette Subscription [Targeted]

[Reposting 12/5 since some people are seeing this targeted offer now.]

The Offer

Direct Link (this link might show the offer; login first for better odds of seeing it; you can also try poking around your Swagbucks account to see if it pops up; also try using a VPN)

  • Subscribe to Gillette via Swagbucks and earn 3,500 Swabucks for your first shipment
  • Earn an additional 1,000 Swagbucks if you stay subscribed for three months

The first purchase is less than $10 shipped leaving a moneymaker of more than $25, even without giving any value to the product itself. Offer seems to be targeted for specific users.

Here’s how to go about doing this deal:

  1. Find the Gillette offer on Swagbucks and clickthrough
  2. Select ‘Get Started’
  3. Select the $7 option (or pay more if you’d like), keep in mind you’ll also pay $2 shipping for a total of $9
  4. Select the ‘Set it & Forget it’ subscription option and choose frequency (I chose once every 6 months)
  5. Create a login and enter your personal details (might be worth using the same email as is on your SB account just in case that’s necessary)
  6. Edit the order from 2 razors to 1 to bring down the cost
  7. You should now see a cost of $9 + tax (for some reason, mine is showing up as $10.63 in my credit card login, maybe it’ll drop down $1 on it’s own)
  8. Click Purchase
  9. You should see the Swagbucks pending instantly and also get an instant confirmation from Swagbucks

The Fine Print

  • ‘One Day Only’ (this deal might end in a few hours or maybe it’s valid through tomorrow, Tuesday)

Our Verdict

I believe I’ve done a previous Gillette deal and was still able to do this one since this is a subscription deal which is different. If you’ve done a subscription deal previously it might not work; Swagbucks is pretty good about removing or erroring out offers which aren’t valid for you, so if the offer is showing and clickthrough is working it’ll probably work.

  • Remember to cancel if you no longer want the Gillette subscription. Put it on your calendar, whatever. You can easily cancel the subscription online after the first order ships.
  • Bear in mind that some people end up having problems either with the portal tracking or with Swagbucks deactivating their account for reasons which aren’t clear, so keep the risks in mind.

    It’s nowhere to be found. It looks like it was dead right after you posted.

  2. parrothead says:

    Haha works perfectly Doc!

    Thanks

  3. Adam says:

    dont see it either. not sure if its super targeted or over (they’ve reached their limit?) … thought maybe its cause I’ve done something similar before. but doesnt show up even if I click the link when logged out or in incognito.

    also Chuck theres some discrepancy in your post. you mention the offer is for 3500 SBs. whereas the screenshot shows 4500. but then your pending screenshot shows 3500. dunno if there are multiple (super targeted?) versions of this offer going around or what lol.

  4. Trevor says:

    Completed the offer, hope it works. I don’t see anything pending in my activity. Fortunately I’ve found Swagbucks to be pretty good about manually crediting things eventually (although I do often have to submit multiple tickets).

  5. Dan says:

    I see it, but when I click on only blank page opens (homepage)

  6. Durga says:

    works perfect for me. Thanks Doc!

  7. Blue says:

    I’ve got it but the order didn’t register on Swagbucks.

  8. Frank says:

    I saw this offer but it connected me to Google…..

  9. John Doe says:

    Just to clarify this, so if I selected a 6-month subscription, then stay subscribed for 3 months, and cancel before the end of the 6 months, I’ll get the 4,500 SB points?

  10. J. says:

    I have the offer in three places but it leads me to google

  11. GM says:

    Placed the 5 MACH3® Razor Blade Cartridges order with free shipping and got email confirmation from SB’s instantly. But says SB’s will be pending for 1 month (saw the time period later in the image under #9). Oh well, will hopefully remember!

  12. Tom says:

    Just did it, went through fine, also for $10.63 instead of the stated $9.63 on the confirmation page. See the pending credit in swagbucks.

  13. Jay A says:

    Worked for me and a friend I referred. Also posted to my card for $1 more than quoted, so we’ll have to see if that falls off. Both of us received confirmation and pending points immediately.

  14. P says:

    I’m eligible, my total was $9.40 but it’s not pending. Shoots.

  15. Jay A says:

    DP I received sb for the Gillette one time purchase promotion and still qualified for this set it and forget it one.

  16. Daniel says:

    Man this gilette deal never works. Always go to directly to google.com

  17. Daniel says:

    OK I figured it out.
    It’s not the browser. It’s your internet service provider. It looks like there’s some issue with DNS with particular ISP. Mine is TWC.

    So I tried a VPN and the gilette website shows fine.

    Also one little tip. I had very bad luck with chrome incognito with SB tracking for this kind of offers. Tried a few times and they all didn’t track. It’s weird because their “SHOP” offers track fine with Chrome.

    However, Internet Explorer or Edge InPrivate mode worked consistently well as it did this time.

    Thanks Doc.

  18. nun says:

    I did this “one day only” offer last weekend. However where do I find “pending” activity? I don’t see anything under “Activity” at http://www.swagbucks.com/account/summary Will be p/o if they didn’t record this click & purchase. Thanks.

  19. MP says:

    Thanks DOC. I had a slightly different offer. 2,000 SB for first order and 1,000 for the three month sub.

    I went ahead and got the $19.74 for 4 Proglide blades which I use. You can’t beat months of free shaving.

  20. Hodor says:

    Saw the offer in the SB app. Went through the order process and got a confirmation email from Gillette, but no email SB or SBs posted to my account yet.

  21. pete says:

    deal is back for today

  22. Blue says:

    Fuck these assholes. I tried two orders last time didn’t get either to count and never even got a response to my submission of purchase records.

  23. Joe says:

    I was just about to submit this offer! I also did the one time Gillette purchase a few months ago. Rolled the dice just now and it’s already showing my 3500 swagbucks as pending. Free money!!!!

    BTW, no calls or spam from the GoDaddy .com domain name promotion the other day. Doesn’t even look like my address or phone number is in the whois record.

  24. Mike says:

    Finally decided to start using swagbucks through the DOC link the other day and was pleased when my first offer posted right away. Since then I have tried this one, a Hulu one, and shopping to get the $10 credit and none of them have posted. Do these usually take some time or if it’s not up instantly am I going to have to go to them every single time?

    • Chuck says:

      Sorry to hear it’s not working well for you. We try posting on each deal when it’s said to be showing up right away and when it takes time. I usually only post the ones which are showing up for most people right away.

  25. paz says:

    Since I did the previous Gilette on-demand deal, no $3 off this time, so my cost is $12.xx which is being charged $13.xx on my credit card. No instant 3500 SB, so I guess I have to fight SB for the money after 30 days then. Sigh.

  26. J.M. says:

    Have tried this Gillett offer 3 times now and haven’t gotten the promised Swagbucks for any of them. The first time I thought it was because I did it from my phone and maybe I wasn’t signed into my SB account. I let it go since a razor and 5 blades for $10 isn’t too bad.

    Tonight I tried it again, twice, and neither time did it work. On both occasions I made sure the old Gillette account didn’t have my SB email address in it, so I could create a new account with the matching email address.

    Opened a case for missing SBs with SB but don’t expect to get them.

    Now I’ll have 3 razors, and 14 blades (I’m still using the first blade from my shipment back in September – I only shave about twice a month).

    • J says:

      You have to be a new user (which is likely what they would tell you for not getting the credit). Fighting for SB is very time and energy consuming in my experience. I would call Gillette immediately to cancel the order to avoid the hassle.

      • J.M. says:

        Why would I be presented with the offer after logging into my SB account if it’s only for new users? Strange if true.

  27. Ryan says:

    Worked for me also! The credit for 3500 is in my pending area and I too was charged 10.63 and not the 9.63 it showed when I checked out. Still not going to complain and I did need razors, I use electric mostly and I was on my last blade from a swagbucks dollar shave club deal lol. Good timing.

  28. Nate says:

    Weird bug. I clicked the offer once, accidentally closed the Gilette website.

    Now every time I click the offer or copy the link and open, it redirects to google.

    Is the site trying to prevent a double usage even though I haven’t used? Shame.
