Free $35 in Snacks with Naturebox and Swagbucks

[Update 8/15/17: Deal is back and slightly better with 1,250 Swagbucks earned. Also, added Drop $7.50 earn, also added that the free shipping doesn’t seem to be working.]

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Get 1,000 1,250 Swagbucks with your Naturebox snack order
  • Drop is offering 7,500 points (worth $7.50 in gift cards)

Naturebox has a large selection of snacks, and is running a few separate offers right now:

  • Member discount of up to 40% off
  • Get $15 off three snacks with promo code: 3FREESNACKS
  • They always offer free shipping on $25+ (Update 8/15/17: readers are saying the free shipping isn’t working this time)

To maximize, the goal is to get around $36 of food which will end up at ~$25 after the member discount and trigger free shipping. Then get $15 off with the promo code and pay ~$10 shipped for your order. You’ll then get 1,000 1,250 Swagbucks back which is worth at least $12.50. 

Be sure to first link your payment card with Drop to get the extra $7.50 in rewards.

The Fine Print

  • Swagbucks for this offer awards instantly
  • Offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user

Our Verdict

No moneymaker here, but a nice way to get $35 of free snacks and to try out the Naturebox subscription service. You will be signed up for a year’s subscription during checking so be sure to cancel within the month to avoid any fees. Sounds like you can cancel afterward as well and get a refund. I was able to cancel via chat.

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, the experience of myself and others is that the Swagbucks are indeed posting instantly, as promised.

You can also subscribe to Naturebox to get a 5% additional discount. And check if you have a 20% off deal showing in Bank Amerideals for orders $15+. You might also be able to get another $20 from Drop.

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.

    Instant credit for me.

  2. daxihe says:

    There is a Subscribe+Save to get 5% off option during checkout, and it can turn this deal into a mini money-maker.

  3. Jonathan says:

    Great. I got the credit in 30 seconds

  4. chris a says:

    Nice! Instant credit of 1000 points. Free food!!!

  5. Edward says:

    free nuts, thanks!

  6. J. Grant says:

    Didn’t want to be the first to bite the bullet. Thanks for posting Chuck, and thanks for everyone for confirming the deal posts immediately.

  7. Jason says:

    Instant post. Thanks.

  8. Eric says:

    It appears that the first year is free as it shows my next billing date as 7.3.18. Why the need to cancel in the first month?

    • Chuck says:

      Hmm, I think that means after they bill you on 7/3/17, that $50 charge will last you until 7/3/18. (Not 100% sure.)

      • Eric says:

        The website shows that I was charged $0 and that my next bill will be $50 on 7.3.18. That’s why I think the first year is free.

        I may email them to confirm.

  9. Adam says:

    I made my purchase but when/how do the swagbucks get added to my SB account?


    [referral removed. please don’t post these unless it’s specifically allowed]
    After I placed my order it gave me the above referral link stating:
    I just found the most delicious snacks and want to share them with you. For a limited time, you can get $20 in free snacks. Enjoy!

    If this isn’t allowed please delete this comment.

    Also got a link to use, so feel free to pay it forward if you love Haley Joel Osment.

  11. Highsky says:

    How does the member discount work?

    I assume that the subtotal means the original price and the member discount adds up all the discounts taken from each discounted price, is that right?

    • Chuck says:

      Maybe you can rephrase the question.

      The bottom line is that if you add ~$36 to your cart, it’ll cost ~$25, and that’s before any promo codes, so it’ll qualify for free shipping.

      • Highsky says:

        I should 🙂

        So the ~$36 means the original prices?

        I have put ~$36 snacks in my cart, and the discounts vary based on whether the snacks are on discount?

      • Highsky says:

        This is what I saw…

        Member discount-$6.90
        Members save up to 40% off retail prices.

        • Chuck says:

          I’m not sure if it’s a steady discount on all snacks. Play around until you get the numbers to work out right.

          • Eric says:

            The prices that are listed on the site ARE the discounted prices. For example, the Dried Mango is $7.99 but has $10.99 crossed out. $7.99 is the price that you need to worry about to reach $25.

  12. Pavel says:

    Worked great, thank you!

  13. Nick says:

    1000 swagbucks posted to my new account instantly. Thank you.

  14. Daniel says:

    FYI. My BOA has a cashback rewards deal for 20% back on purchase of $15 or more (max cashback of $6 or $30 transaction).

    The BOA offers have always successfully stacked with other portals including swagbucks.

  15. chris a says:

    I do not see an option to cancel the membership online. May be we may have to do an online chat to get the membership cancelled within 30 days.

    Let us know if any of you see an online option to cancel the membership.

  16. GRR says:

    Credit to SB was instant. I used the 5% renewal (on last checkout screen, it’s a slider) discount which brought the total under $10.

    Because of the price points all being 6.99, 7.99, 10.99 etc, with only a few exceptions the lowest you can get the order to is 25.97 – $15 – 5% = 9.67.

  17. Alex R says:

    I didn’t get the Swagbucks to instantly post, unfortunately. :/

  18. Haiku says:

    SB Posted immediately. Yay my next PCT resupply will have some nice and almost free treats! Thanks for this one.

  19. Zhao Lidong says:

    How to cancel it? Thanks.

  20. JP says:

    No shipping yet.

  21. Yu says:

    got my box yesterday. Anyone tried to cancel the membership yet?

  22. Adam says:

    man Naturebox is acting lame now. they’re adding $4,95 shipping even if your total is way more than $25 but goes below $25 after coupons & members discount :/ … either they changed something up & fked up a good thing… or they’re acting shady now…. basically instead of the total being $10 aka breakeven w the SB offer, now it shows up as over $15 aka $5 out of pocket for a lame deal.

    does anyone else now see the same prob? if so, is there a way to talk to em after you place your order & get shipping credited back. or is this a new “feature” now for good? … sucks I couldn’t get in on this deal earlier.

  23. JP says:

    Liked their sriracha cashews and spicy pub mix but tad bit expensive. Easy cancellation.

  24. hypertext says:

    Swagbucks is now showing 1500 SB instead of 1000 for this offer. Anyone completed it after this change? Still works the same way? I definitely saw what Adam reported where they changed it to charge the $4.95 shipping unless the final total was over $25.

  25. chris says:

    Free shipping not being triggered even for purchases over $25 for some reason.

  26. John says:

    Nicely stacks with the Drop offer too.

    • What’s the drop offer?

      • Chuck says:

        Oh, great point, John! There’s an offer to get $7.50 back on a $20 purchase.

      • Tavosa says:

        Naturbox offer on Drop is 7,500 points for spending $20+.

        Offer is eligible for 7,500 Drop points.

        The Drop points will be awarded once for your first transaction with NatureBox.

        User must spend at least $20 at NatureBox using one of their cards linked with Drop to receive points.

        Please allow up to five (5) days after a valid transaction is processed for Drop points to be issued.

        Offer expires December 31, 2017.

        Offer can not be used in conjunction with other Naturebox offers including a referral bonus or Free Box promotion code.
        Void where prohibited or restricted by law.

        Says it cannot be stacked, anyknow if it’s true though?

        Here is a “share” of the offer from my girls Drop account.. not sure if anyone can use it with a share link, but let me know as it doesn’t seem to allow me to add it to my account from her link on an iPhone – I’ll try desktop later.

        Also Doc… where do we send a screenshot of a deal, etc? I’ve seen an email or something you use besides Twitter?

  27. Dan says:

    Got it right away. No free shipping anymore, so $5 less of free snacks.

  28. naturebox gives $20/20 for referrals. Does that not stack with member discount and lead to better offer than swagbucks? i’m just curious.

  29. Pat says:

    I’m seeing free shipping. Ordered only coffee (Counter Culture coffee is that ish, was surprised they offered it).

  30. Luke G says:

    Free shipping is now only triggered after the 3FREESNACKS promo code. I chose to pay the shipping and keep my order below the SB offer to keep the deal free

  31. Fork says:

    First SB I’ve tried and of course it doesn’t track. Blerg.

    • Master Allan says:

      Don’t give up. My first SB failed too for no good reason – the home chef deal. Wait a few days and ask SB nicely for the missing credit. Took them about 48 hours for me. A few days ago I successfully cashed out for my first SB of a $25 Walmart gift card. I just ordered the $20.97 in snacks, final price $10.92 and received the 1250 SB credit instantly.

  32. Sam says:

    I did this when it was first posted. I also did the “subscribe and save” for the extra 5% off. Please note, when you cancel your “membership” they DO NOT CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS! I canceled in July and this week got a notice that my August sub box was shipping that day (I missed the “shipping soon” email). I contacted them and they acknowledged that’s what is support to happen. You much manually cancel subscriptions yourself.

    I told them that was ridiculous and to cancel the box. They refunded my $27 (!) but, according to the tracking, did not cancel the actual items.

  33. Jeff says:

    Not seeing the $7.50 offer in Drop! Is it gone?

    • tinytavosa says:

      It was more or less targeted I do believe, as not everyone has that offer. If you saw it before and it has disappeared that seems to sometimes be because you didn’t click “activate offer” which I believe happened to my significant other’s offer, but I see it on another account still.

      Offer expires December 31st

    • Not available to everybody I don’t think.

      • tinytavosa says:

        Aa a side note I did successfully share the offer from my significant other’s account to my own with the share offer feature. It didn’t work worked instantly but it did show up when I got around to checking a few days later. I assumed it probably shows up within 24 hours or less burn nevertheless. You also get 500 points for sharing an offer when it get easier use daily, in addition.

        Maybe you’d want wanna add this Drop deal and have someone’s (you or otherwise) share the deal link once they have it on their account… I can email you mine ot otherwise post it if you don’t like or whatever, mainly just so people can have the offer, I don’t care whose link they use.

        Maybe a datapoint that you can (seemingly) you can a share (any) offer for real for the sake of another person getting the offer really, since not the 50 cent value of sharing isn’t worth much lol. It can help with a few notebooks points to hit a $5 or $10 redemption though which is nice.

  34. Chris says:

    Just purchased. Appears the free shipping is for $25 AFTER discounts. Got the 1250 SB instant as well as an unexpected $10 from InboxDollars! T-T-T-TRIPLE DIP!!!!

    • Luke says:

      So, you didn’t have to go through Inbox’s portal to get the $10 credited? Do they have a card-link program, or do you think it tracked through using the same email?

  35. tinytavosa says:

    This looks like it may be dead? Nothing shows up under the direct link “search” for naturebox on swagbucks. I tried incognito as well.
