$10 Moneymaker + $40 Free Food with Home Chef and Swagbucks

[Reposted and updated 9/8/17 since Home Chef has lowered/removed their $10 shipping fee making this deal a moneymaker.]

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Get 2,000 Swagbucks with your Home Chef order
  • Home Chef has a special to get $30 off your first order

Here’s how to go about this deal:

  • Order the 2/meals for 2 people option for $39.80
  • Get the $30 discount
  • Your total will come out to $9.80 shipped
  • The 2,000 earned Swagbucks will cover that, plus net a $10 profit

Some people are getting a message that there is a $5 shipping fee for orders under $45 which leaves this a $5 moneymaker. Others are getting free shipping leaving this a $10 moneymaker. Yet others are seeing $10 shipping which leaves it a free food deal with no moneymaker.

The Fine Print

  • SB for this offer awards instantly
  • Offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user
  • Use of AdBlocking programs may prevent offer from crediting

Our Verdict

The Home Chef deal looks good on it’s own, and the Swagbucks juices it up considerably by making it a moneymaker since the 2,000 Swagbucks are worth a minimum of $20.

There’s also another idea given to make the deal a bit more interesting which as follows. After completing the order for $39.80, there’s an option to add on to the order. Add a smoothie for $4.95, which will be $9.90 for two. That will bring the order total to $49.70, and will trigger free shipping. Basically, you’re getting $10 in smoothies instead of the $10 shipping fee.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Remember to cancel before the second charge if you don’t want the service to continue. Keep in mind that the second charge hits just two days after the first, so cancel the future orders right away if you don’t want them. You can also pause delivery online before you get around to calling in and cancelling.
  • 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. In this case, specifically, the terms say the Swagbucks will post right away, and many readers report the same.

You’ll also see an offer pop up to get $10 toward a future order (not your first order); that could be useful if you want to go for a second order with Home Chef.

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.

Thank you!

My SBs posted instantly. I also chose the 2 services of fruit to remove the shipping charge. If you want to skip your future meals, just click that week and scroll down under where you choose which items and click Skip Delivery.

Adam

where do you chose add-ons like fruit or smoothie to add to the plan & avoid shipping charges? following their customer flow, it just gives me the option to select the # of meals, # of ppl & day of the week before ending up at the payment/checkout page.

It’s at the bottom of the page. I’m not impressed with the Red Delicious apples in the basket, but they’re free. I guess I can bake those garbage apples into an apple crisp with some other apples.

When I try to click on the offer it takes me to google search. Anyone else have the same issue?

It’s also going to the Google page for me, even if I search directly from my Swagbucks account

Still going to Google for me when I click the link, too. Did anyone find a way around this?

Thanks!

Worked for me at 6:50 EST. Swagbucks posted immediately.

hmm so according to SD threads from last fall, the SB offer for this has gone as high as 3000 & even 4000 in the past. tho it maybe rare, might be better off to wait for a higher offer even w/the same stacking to truly make it a MM.

Hmm, SB didn’t post immediately. Signed up for the SB account using the referral link above. Searched the web (through swagbucks for Home Chef). Clicked the view offer link for Home Chef. A new window opened up and I clicked Get started. $30 off code already applied, answered a few questions, ordered, and added fruit smoothies. Logged out of everything.

Not seeing any evidence within SB over my purchase. Using Edge without any addons / popups blockers as I always do for my portal shopping.
Will check back in the morning. Don’t see how I did anything wrong here.

Same for me. Went through Swagbucks site rather than Doc’s direct link (link wasn’t working). Swagbucks still showed the 2,000 points offer at the time. Checked out for $19.80, then checked my SB profile, and no points. So if it doesn’t post, then at least I got 4 meals for $20. Still not bad.

I did send an e-mail to Swagbucks the morning after requesting the missing activity credit (Thursday a.m.). They have sent several e-mails to me with updates though the messages do read as automated. Hopefully I will have my manual credit soon though it has only been about 36 hours since my original purchase.

Success late Friday Night!!

Got my Swag bucks credit after e-mailing their support.
R – Login & just look for the “Help” option. Then click “submit a request”. You will find missing activity under a pulldown menu.

I paused my account after initial delivery from this offer. How do you cancel altogether?

I just placed the order and saw that the SB was credited immediately.

For those who want to skip the first delivery, I was able to skip by contacting the support. Hurry, you will have to do it before Friday 12 PM CST.

Help me understand when I should pause/cancel. Let’s say I’d actually like to try the first delivery. I was charged the $19.80 at signup. Is that delivery locked in because I signed up? The dashboard makes it confusing because it says I’ll be charged on friday. Should I just pause immediately after signup or is it ok to wait until next week?

Thanks!

From their site:

“Pausing your account will effectively cancel your subscription with us, but if you’d like to start receiving meals again, you may log back in and unpause at any time.

Keep in mind that pausing your account will not cancel an order that’s already been processed, including your first scheduled order. Be sure to pause your account before the Friday 12PM Central deadline if you do not want a delivery for the upcoming week. “

Thanks for posting this deal – I can’t wait to try this service. SB posted for me right away and I exchanged for an Amazon gift card. Does anyone know if a call is required to stop the second payment? I tried “pausing” but then it looked like the first delivery wouldn’t arrive, unless I was misreading the account page.
