Swagbucks: Boxed Get $20 back on $20 in Groceries [First Time Boxed Users]

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Swagbucks is offering $20 back when you spend $19.99 or more on groceries at Boxed.com. This offer is for first-time Boxed users only. 

The Fine Print

  • This offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user
  • Please allow up to 32 days for SB to be credited to your account
  • Must be a new user to redeem SB
  • Items returned will not be valid for SB

Our Verdict

With Boxed, it’s the art of stacking that’s important, and it honestly confounds me.

Potential Stacks: 

  • Shipping should be free for new customers
  • $15 off $60 for new users with referral (update: this might not stack with the Swagbucks deal)
  • $20 back on $50 purchase for first time Boxed customers by linking your credit card with Drop and saving the offer (note: terms say this offer can’t be combined with other offers; hopefully it’ll stack with the SB deal)
  • Promo code BULK for 10% off
  • 4% back with Acorns (?)

Might be possible to spend ~$73, get 10% off, get $15 referral discount, get $20 Drop, and get $20 Swagbucks. All told it’ll be around $10 for $75 of goods if all works out.

No Amex Offer deal going on now, unfortunately. The Swagbucks should show up as pending within hours of the purchase, though it won’t fully credit for 32 days. Just remember Swagbucks occasionally don’t post properly so keeps the risks in mind.

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

Made a new account with Boxed, bought $22.26 worth of items
10% off code got it down to $20.03, so $0.03 after the discount! Woo!

I wonder if the “new user” language in the T&Cs means that you have to create your Boxed.com account after clicking through the Swagbucks link, rather than creating one earlier through a referral link.

To me it seems like you have to be a new SB user to get this offer. Am I wrong? If not do you think two different new Boxed accounts would earn the bonus with the same SB account?

I did this yesterday but don’t see the SB showing in my activity list. Hum.

FYI, there are some free items on Boxed that you can add to this deal:

Prince & Spring (Boxed brand) sample bundle (includes tissues, batteries, coffee, etc.): https://www.boxed.com/product/4125/prince-spring-sample-bundle-14-value/

Football bottle opener magnet: https://www.boxed.com/product/1908/football-bottler-opener-magnet-boxed-giveaway/

This Side Up game: https://www.boxed.com/product/4977/boxed-this-side-up-family-card-game/

Add any four samples from this page: https://www.boxed.com/samples/

Also, if you are looking for some cheap filler items to get over the 19.99 threshold, you can add the below items. Note these do not come up if looking at ‘All Products’ or even if you search for them on the site. From what I can tell, the only way to add them is by going through the direct link. (There may be some more items out there like this.)

M&M’s Almonds (2.83 oz) – $1.19: https://www.boxed.com/product/4718/mars-mms-almonds-2.83-oz./

Stacy’s Simply Naked Pita Crisps (6.75 oz) – $1.99: https://www.boxed.com/product/4262/stacys-simply-naked-pita-crisps-6.75-oz./

Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips (7.33 oz) – $1.99: https://www.boxed.com/product/4260/stacys-cinnamon-sugar-pita-chips-7.33-oz./

Within a few hours, I got an email from Swagbucks confirming the Boxed.com Transaction and the 2,000 SB Points that are Pending. Paid $20.67 + 5% Cash Back from Chase Freedom = Money Maker + Free Groceries!

I can confirm that $15 referral credit stacks with swagbucks $20 (though if using referral credits, you cannot use GETBULK or any other discount code). Hopefully will get $20 from drop as well. So I bought $65 worth of stuff for $10! Their prices for cleaning supplies like Tide, Cascade dishwasher pods etc is competitive with amazon.

Created an account and placed an order yesterday for just over $50. Today got notification that my 2,000 swagbucks and 20,000 drop points were pending. Stacked with 15% off from code GETBULK.

Check your account,
in my case the credit posted as pending on 01/30
was reversed today, 02/05
Swagbucks are borderline fraud, be warned

FC

Me too. I contacted Swagbucks but I got an instant email telling me to wait the 32 days before they can do anything.

Did either of you have spouses/roommates who also took advantage of this offer? My pending SB got reversed on 2/5, but my wife’s is still pending. I wonder if they are going to claim the offer was one per household. There was no such limitation in the T&Cs, which only said “one time per user.”

Same here, they also reversed my pending points. This was my first time using Swagbucks and boxed.com and probably the last time.

RM

I am trying to figure out what triggered this. Did you use the GETBULK promo code? Did someone else in your household also do the offer?

stacker

I used the promo code and my total was still over $20. No one else has a Swagbucks or boxed account.

RM

I am starting to suspect it is the GETBULK promo code that is causing the pending points to get reversed. My wife did not use it in placing her Boxed order, and her 2000SB are still pending. There was nothing in the T&Cs about not using other coupons, though, so I think that Boxed/Swagbucks are on pretty thin ice if that really is the reason.

Going to wait 32 days before contacting CS, I have a screenshot of the terms just in case they try to change them.

RM
RM

I was right. Swagbucks has now changed the T&Cs of this offer with the following sentence: “Layering other promo codes will void your ability to earn SB.” I guess they are going to try to apply this condition retroactively. Ridiculous!

stacker

I will try a chargeback if they don’t honor the original terms.

Sam
Sam

I don’t think your credit card is going to allow you to do a charge back when you ordered and received $20+ worth of goods. The Swagbucks deal is a separate “rebate”. If a SB deal doesn’t work, you just gotta move on.

After submitting a ticket, I got 2000SB credited to my account today without the 32-day waiting period, so it seems like this is fixable.

John Doe

My 2,000 SB Points were reversed too. It’s been more than 32 days since the Date of Purchase. Will see what they’d say about the Point Reversal.

John Doe

Both my Fiance and myself got our 2,000 SB points credited back, within 24 hours of opening a ticket.
