Swagbucks: 4 Bottles Wine + $10 Moneymaker with Bright Cellars Subscription

Update 9/12/19: Deal is available again

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Swagbucks is offering 5,000 Swagbucks when you signup for a Bright Cellars wine subscription.
  • You also get $50 off your first order.

Take the 6 question quiz, and they’ll match you to the best wine for your liking. It’s advertised as a 6-bottle subscription, but readers say it’s really a 4-bottle subscription.

The Fine Print

Our Verdict

Cheapest is an $80 subscription package (4 bottles x $20 each) which will cost $30 after the discount, plus $10 shipping/tax. In the end, you should be able to land up with 4 bottles of wine + $50 back in Swagbucks for the cost of around $40. Not sure how good the wine is, but this sounds like a nice way to try them out.

  • Remember to cancel before the second charge if you don’t want the service to continue. The terms are clear that just getting one month is enough to be eligible for the Swagbucks deal.
  • 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.

Agree. Lots of problems with the order. Don’t waste your time.

Put in a ticket with swagbucks with all the documentation they requested. They refuse to honor this deal.

Not pending immediately or confirmation email from Swagbucks. Not a good sign. Not trying to fight with SB.

Got absolutely nothing from the last two foodbox offers, really losing hope with these moneymakers. Shame cause theyre such great offers in theory

I paid $40 after discount (8 shipping fee + 2 tax). Still a 10 dollar moneymaker.

Not sure how it’s a $20 moneymaker?

I’m seeing four bottles when checking out the site, not six….

At checkout, CA shipping is $8.00 plus $2.34 tax makes this a $9.57 MM. Give or take a few depending on whether you are taxed or if there’s free shipping somehow.

Here’s what the wine quiz produced and what will be sent to me:

Pana Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Raincheck Wine Co. Riesling 2017
Batik Muscat of Alexandria 2017
Life in the Woods Moscato 2017

You can only change each wine once but can redo the quiz and try to get different ones if you really don’t like the choices.

I TRIED to find the prices. However, it looks like these are either one-off’s, or just wines which didn’t sell well.

Pana Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 $13
Raincheck Wine Co. Riesling 2017 $21
Batik Muscat of Alexandria 2017 $20
Life in the Woods Moscato 2017 $15.

Based on the price range, I can presume the middle two are also~$15 for Bright Cellar.

If you are interested in a review, search for the last wine on Google. It looks exclusive to Bright Cellars.

I didn’t post the review links because all of them contained a referral link.

Can’t seem to get a 6-bottle offer to show up. Every time I do it, it matches me with 4 bottles (plus shipping and taxes). Any one else have better luck?

Ive stopped Swagbucks deals all together. The last profitable Sirius offer tracked and they never paid. Despite having all the documentation and it showing on my transaction history they refused to honor it. Their customer service email “wished me better shopping experiences in the future” and never responded to my inquiry. Now I have an expensive satellite radio subscription.

Cancel Sirius. If you try they’ll just give you a good deal not to. “Wish you a better shopping experience in the future” what good does that do to you.

Exactly. . . I told Sirius I was canceling because I was unhappy with Swagbucks. Refunded my purchase price and gave me another free month. Was really hard to cancel after the second month but they after putting me on hold for a while.

I suspect Swagbucks does this on purpose as a sleazy way to make more money. I have almost stopped doing any Swagbucks deals. If the points don’t post immediately they never will. Their customer service is very bad. I have had to contact them for about half the deals. The Swagbucks for the Gobble deal never posted. There is something about food/drink deals that always seem to have a problem with the exception of Home Chef that posted immediately.

Some deals do take more than a few days to post. I did Sierra Club MM that didn’t post for 4 weeks. I ended up getting both a refund and Swagbucks.

But again I got burned on Farmer’s dog Dog food deal. Swagbucks refused to honor even though I saved shipping label and everything. I was able to get a refund through the merchant, but it left a sour taste.

Swagbucks is pretty much a sh!tshow. It’s good to prepare for the worst.

This is very similar to what happened to me. They gave me the line “At this time the merchant did not report crediting for your participation and our team was not able to successfully confirm participation through our site, this activity is not eligible for crediting. Thank you for understanding!” This in spite of the fact that I sent screenshots of portal click, offer and order confirmation.

Ive been having a lot of issues with SB recently and having to follow up on every purchase is incredibly time consuming. I dont think their offers are reliable anymore.

monica horn

NOPE They are not. Their offers entice you to put your $ out upfront and then they never give you the sb promised in the offer. Bait and Switch.

I’ve done a few dozen swagbucks transactions and I haven’t been bitten so far. Not sure if it matters, but I use Windows 10, Chrome, Swagbutton, I make sure not to click off or browse away before the transaction is completed, and I disable Adblock when I’m using rebate trackers.

How to get the $50 off?

Count me among those who have given up on swag bucks. A recent purchase for proactiv that failed to track and for which customer service was unhelpful was the end for me. I hope another portal that’s more reliable than swagbucks runs a similar deal.

Nothing pending.. not a good sign

i would be EXTREMELY cautious with this offer. the fact that the offer terms say 6 bottles, yet the offer itself is for 4, is a huge red flag and SB will undoubtedly say you failed to follow the terms because you only ordered 4.

i am also concerned about the “$50 off” – which i (and apparently others) can’t seem to get. i would not put it past them to say later that the 50,000 SB is supposed to be the $50 off, meaning that i am paying ~$90 upfront for 4 bottles of wine, with the hope of maybe getting $50 back later.

Concur. DoC — take some note — you should at least post in your text that more and more of us are suffering TERRIBLE experiences with Swagbucks….. losing money, not “making” anything…. (note all the negative comments above, and the growing #’s of “likes” to those negative reports)

William Charles

I think it’s pretty clear in the post that some people are experiencing issues. It’s also worth keeping in mind people are much more likely to report negative experiences than positive ones.

1/23 7:44 PM Ordered and Paid $40.34 for 4 wines
1/24 0:30 AM $50 Cashback Pending
I am a new user of Swagbucks. So maybe the first experience will be not that disappointing as listed above?

Thom

Got an email that 5k points posted as pending several hours later. Ordered to NY address, around $41 for 4 wines.

But when I go to Swagbucks.com there isn’t any mention of any points pending, anyone else experiencing the same?
