Swagbucks: $10 Moneymaker + $40 Free Food with Home Chef, Stack with $10 Amex Offer

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Get 3,000 Swagbucks with your Home Chef order.
  • Get $30 off your first order with promo code MEALS4U.
  • There’s also an Amex Offer deal for $10 off purchases $45 or higher.
  • Some people are also seeing a deal on Bank Amerideals/Chase Offers/other banks for 10% off at Home Chef. That one is a bit easier to do than the Amex deal since you don’t need to hit any $45 threshold.

 

Here’s how to go about this deal:

  • Choose the amount of people and meals you’d like. Minimum is 2 meals for 2 people which costs $39.80.
  • Get the $30 discount
  • Pay $10 shipping fee
  • Total paid for first week will be $19.80
  • The 3,000 earned Swagbucks will cover more than the $19.80 cost

If you spend $45, you get free shipping. Far as I can tell, the only way to push your total up to $45 is by choosing 3 meals for 2 people, that brings the total up to $59.80, but it does save the $10 shipping, for a final cost of $29.80. (Last time there was some discussion about adding extras to push it over $45.)

The Fine Print

  • Offer ends 1/24.
  • Limited to one offer redemption per household.
  • Members must be mobile verified in order to access the offer.
  • Layering other promo codes will void your ability to earn SB.
  • Use of AdBlocking programs may prevent offer from crediting

Our Verdict

Far as I know, you can cancel after the first week and get the free meals + $10 profit. Certainly a nice time to try out HomeChef if that’s something your interested in. Last time around, the Swagbucks posted instantly, and that seems to be the case this time as well.

There’s also an Amex Offer for $10 off $45. You can leave the subscription going for a second week, if you find the service useful, and trigger the Amex deal.

  • 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.

If you’re new to Swagbucks then please read our review. You can get a bonus of up to $13 by using a referral link.

Hi where would I find this offer on my amx card, if I have the offer and do I opt in? And can you stack it- well I guess i’d just use it as payment and see? thanks!

Was it instant for you? I made the order and didn’t get the email or pending activity 🙁

The one per household restriction rules me out 🙁

It’s been over a year since I’ve used Home Chef. I wonder if I’d still be able to do this. I really liked the service.

chris

i’m wondering the same thing. when i try the link it asks me to log in. wonder if that makes me ineligible.

If I try it, I’d go with a different browser and email address. Sadly I can’t change my name or address 🙂

You absolutely can change your address. Just add suite or spell out Road or try adding 1A.

you can customzize the order prior to shippng. changed one from dinner at 9,95/serv to 7.99 and then added 2 smoothies at 4.95ea. total came out to 45.78 before 30 discount and got free shipping with the 3000 swagbucks will be a 14.24 mm. It does charge the 19.80 first before you can make changes, so now i have a credit.

Got the swagbuck email about the 3000 points Thanks for discovering a great deal at Swagbucks! We see you made a transaction through Swagbucks for Home Chef Purchase valued at 3,000 SB. We wanted to let you know that your SB are pending until February 21, 2019.

If you have a credit on your account after the changes, are you going to get another delivery in the future to use the remaining credit? Or am I missing something?

How long does it take to appear in swagbucks? Not immediate for me…

Also 5000 points on MyPoints — @.67cpp that’s $33.50 in eVGC. Wish I had checked that first. Oh well

Thanks for the tip. Mine didn’t track yet but hopefully it will…this is pretty similar to the gobble deal and that also had a weird way of tracking.

What’s also interesting is that the MyPoints offer says “one per user,” not “once per household.” I know SB and MyPoints are both Prodege, so it’s a bit of a gamble…

Frank

Will even the $59 order trigger the $10 credit if SB gives a $30 discount?

ally

I did the $59 and it did say i’d get a $10 credit on my next order?
plus rec’d email:

Mine did not automatically post after ordering – BTW – you can play around with the numbers to get the first order easily over $45. 2 meals, with 4 servings ends up at $79.XX – $30 => $49.XX which is perfect for this deal… Minus $10 and $30 in AMEX in SB leads to $9 for a good amount of food and doesn’t require a second week unless you like the service to take advantage of the Amex offer again (which can be done for 4 weeks).

I tried that. But HomeChef asked for the credit information before selecting the meal. After selecting the 2 meals/4servings, the total amount is 79.XX. The promo code applied automatically (30 saving). However, HomeChef now only changed me 29.XX and saying the remaining is 20. The AmEx offer does require finish a purchase of 45 or more in a SINGLE purchase. Anyone know will HomeChef finally charge us only once when the items are shipped? If they charge twice (29.00 now and 20.00 when the items shipped), the AmEx offer will not be triggered, I am afraid.

Anyone else forget to put in the promo code? Did you get the SB pending?

James

Didn’t put in the promo code because the discount of the right amount was already showing. Did not get SB pending though..

George

Did not get SB pending either. Just noticed the promo code.

Retried using incognito mode. On last page of sign-up, where you put in credit card numbers, promo code is automatically applied.
I didn’t get SB pending so far.

James

Following the link auto-applied the promo code for me it seems, I didnt get SB pending either, been about 5 hours.

12 hours and still have nothing pending..

I did this offer in December. The promo code was auto-applied after clicking through from SB. However, my SB never appeared, and I had to wait 32 days to open a case to get them credited. The good news I guess is that Swagbucks did eventually issue a courtesy credit for the missing SB — I just had to provide a screenshot of the confirmation email I received when I signed up.

George

Thanks for the info! I’m marking my calendar to wait 32 days.

“We do not accept prepaid cards.”
My spidey sense is tingling. Do we know this is easy to cancel?
