Swagbucks: $18 Moneymaker with Gamefly Subscription

[08/29/17: Reposting since this it’s up to 2,800 SB now. Hat tip to  to readers zap and J.]

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Signup for a two-month Gamefly subscription at the cost of $10 and get 2,500 2,800 Swagbucks

 

The Fine Print

  • This offer may only be redeemed one time per user
  • You must be a new GameFly customer
  • Swagbucks awarded within 24 hours
  • This is a recurring billing subscription; after the first 2 months, you’ll be billed $15.95/month
  • Alternate coupon codes/discounts may void offer
  • If you cancel your order, your SB may be revoked
  • Some report the deal not showing properly on mobile

Our Verdict

A similar offer has run numerous times in the past, but it was always 2,000 Swagbucks; this one is $8 better. If you did a previous deal, you can’t do this one.

Swagbucks are worth at least one cent per point, and you’ll net $18 on this deal, plus 2 free months of service. It’s especially worthwhile for someone who is interested in the actual service offered. It’s reported on Slickdeals that they send you a free month of Hulu as well after signup.

Remember to set yourself a reminder to evaluate if you should cancel the subscription before the two months are over. To cancel, login to your Gamefly account and click on your name on the top right > account setting > cancel my membership.

Points are reportedly posting instantly with this deal. Just bear in mind that with other Swagbucks deals, some people have had 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 also get a bonus of up to $5 by using a referral link.

What a sweet deal. The gamer in me loves it.

Also, this offer qualifies you for a free month of Hulu as well–sweetens the deal even more.

Easy peasy. Posted instantly for me too. Came out to a few cents less than $15 because of tax, but still a great deal since I was considering buying a new game anyway over the next couple months. Thanks Chuck!

Welp, maybe spoke too soon… “There is a problem with your account. For further assistance, contact GameFly Support.”

Sent them an email, hopefully SB doesn’t clawback anything…

Just FYI if you’re not a gamer, gamefly will mail you DVDs/Bluray movies like non-streaming Netflix. So non-gamers can get some enjoyment from the subscription as well.

It worked, but the email I registered for swagbucks with isn’t the same as my paypal email. I didn’t realize this would cause a problem redeeming SB.

Got my account deactivated after signing up for Dollar shave club and then Hulu. No idea why.

Signed up this morning and didn’t get the swag bucks yet – just tried to click through again to see and it says it has been deactivated…may be because I already did it but someone who hasn’t may want to check the link just in case.

FYI, for people who have already done swagbucks gamefly deal, there are similar deals on mypoints. Rewards are worth less, though. They have Hulu for 2500 points (there are ways to make this work without paying $7.99 just as for swagbucks FYI – google will be your friend) and then through their trial pay portal 2500 pts for gamefly 2 month $10. With 5k points you have enough for $25 via PayPal

Just completed and got instant credit on swagbucks. Super easy deal, Thanks!

Seems like it’s down to 1,000 SB now, so no longer a moneymaker.

It went back up again to 2500SB. Did it. Points posted instantly and got a code for a free month of Hulu.

how do you apply the free month of hulu if you are already subscribed to hulu?
Sorry for the nood question, I do not use it, I just got hulu because of the hulu/swagbucks deal. Thanks

Still waiting to get paid out for last time. Swagbucks is garbage imo. Never got paid for this or ProActive

William Charles

What happens when you contact support?

Mark O

For GF they said originally they were aware of the issue and are working with their partners. It has been a month now – how long does it take when they are paying out new members instantly now.

For Proactive I told them after 5 days it didn’t show in my pending or anything and they didn’t respond until 3 days later saying it was a delayed payout. Terms said should be paid within 10 days even though most people got it much sooner. I emailed them again today (day 12) and there has been no response.

I even posted on their facebook page on Friday about both issues and they did not respond but some other people said they have had issues with the offers in the past and quit doing them.

If I used a different e-mail than the one associated with my swagbucks account, am I going to have issues?

Received instant credit. Any consequences if I cancel a few days before the subscription hits and after I’ve redeemed my SB?

Hi, so I just signed up for swagbucks, and completed this deal, and a couple of other penny things… I have not received credit for this yet– Is there an email address you guys would recommend I try to contact for my points?

Thanks for the help!!

I have email confirmation from gamefly, and I have my credit card statement showing the purchase of course…

My signup with GameFly didn’t seem to track. Any way to submit a ticket to Swagbucks? I can’t seem to find anything on their site.

Anyone are really using this service? I signed up last month, but has yet to use it. Will my swagbuck be taken back if I cancel the service without using it at all?

Timmy

any update on this? did you cancel without using service?

The link posted still says 2,500 Swagbucks, but the TrialPay offer on Swagbucks only lists this at 1,500 now. Does anyone know if there was a reduction?

Mark
Mark

Odd advertisement in big font 2500 SB and below it 1500SB. I tried it, immediately got 1500 SB. Sent message with print screen requesting other 1000 SB.

Just a DP:

I signed up for this during the March promotion and didn’t get my SB rewarded immediately. I contacted support and kept getting the same canned response (I reached out immediately, and then 1 month later):

“Thanks for writing in. Please note that we are currently experiencing an issue with this offer crediting properly and will have a resolution soon. If you have any questions, please let me know.”

I figured it was because I didn’t use the same email as my SB account so I pretty much gave up.

Today, my 2,500 SB posted! Ironically, my 2-month trial is ending next week and I JUST cancelled the membership today.

I got 700 points instantly, but the offer was for 2500. Anyone have this problem?

I just tried and it said offer not available. I went to my own swagbucks page and clicked on the offer.

Does anybody have any insight into what GF considers a new customer? I think I had an account back in 2004. I used the password lookup and didn’t get any result, but I’m not sure if that’s sufficient to determine that I’m not in their database.

Jeremiah

I used the same email for an account that I had back in like 2010(ish?) and there was no indication that they had me in their system. Got the SB and my first game is already in the mail.

I’ve never used Gamefly before, but when I tried signing up with the same email I use for Swagbucks I received a message that my email was already taken for another account. This is an email on a private domain that I control and have for quite a few years.

Other than changing the email associated with Swagbucks I’m really not sure what to do.

If the message you’re getting is:

We can’t find this page.
This page’s URL is invalid….. etc.

Then you’re probably banned from completing trialpay offers. I can’t complete any trialpay offer (hulu, gamefly, etc.) because my account/IP is banned.

I am getting this exact same message. My SB account is active and everything is normal. May be my account is just flagged for trial pay offers.

MoreSun

That would be such a bummer. I love these offers. I don’t qualify for this one so idk if I’m banned…

P

YOu could look a tad discover offers > trial pay. If the same error pops up for other offers then probably you’re banned. You can try contacting trial pay to unban you

chris a
chris a

Tried a few other trial pay offers and get the same error message. So its pretty clear they have banned me. I will try to send trialpay a note and see why they banned me. Lets see if they can unban me since i cancelled all the previous trial offers as per the terms of the offers.

Current offer is 2800 SB. Too bad I jumped on the 2500 offer already.

Has everyone has luck getting their SB credit within 24 hours? It’s been two days for me and nothing.

I just logged in and went through the promo link with 2800 points on my swagbucks account. After I paid for the 2 months of Gamefly, I was credited the 2800 points within minutes, and have used them for a Walmart Gift Card.

Same here. I did it more than 24 hours ago and no bonus points.
