$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.]
- 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
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.
