[Expired] Swagbucks: Buy Swagbucks For Facevalue (e.g Buy $20 Worth For $20)

Update 7/29/19: Deal still going, you can do a few per day (2 or 3 or 4, depending on the day or on the person).

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Swagbucks is selling Swagbucks at face value. This means that you can buy 2,000 Swagbucks for $20. Swagbucks are worth a minimum of 1¢ each towards things like Paypal cash, Amazon gift cards, or Virtual Visa gift cards.

The Fine Print

  • Unknown limit, seems you need to wait a short period in between each purchase (2-3 mins). Most I’ve seen people buy is 9
  • residents of AZ, CT, MD, and ND are not allowed to make SB purchases due to applicable state law

Our Verdict

This deal isn’t as good as previous deals with a 10% discount, but can be useful for meeting Swagbucks goals/generating a small amount of credit card spend. Personally I think it’s only worth buying when discounted rather than face value. Citi Access More earns 3x Keep in mind each month you can purchase one $25 gift card for 2,200 swagbucks so it’s possible to get more than 1¢ in value. Otherwise, you typically get 1 cent per point via Paypal. For more Swagbucks deals click hereTry waiting a few minutes and you should be able to purchase more

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.

I just used the $20 from a $25 Virtual Visa Gift Card I purchased for 2,175 SB a couple days ago, to purchase another 2,000 points. I love this churning!

Eric
Eric

That discounted $25 visa is limited to 1/month. Not scalable.

Plus, buying in low denominations is too time consuming.

Burton

Different people have different definitions of churning. To some, it is making $10 from a few clicks on a keyboard. I’ll take the easy scraps when they are offered.

Good to pick up itunes cards at 20% off, or virtual visa 13% off, or to hit MSR.

David
David

Mike, why are the iTunes cards a good pick up? Seems like reselling on places like eBay would be dangerous and places like raise don’t accept from new sellers.

Mike
Mike

We use them. 20% is a good discount.

I tried to purchase $20 worth of points using a gift card.
It flashed the congratulations message but nothing happens.
SB points are still the same and the balance from GC did not deduct.

How long did it take for you folks for the SB to credit and the charge to show up?

Celia
Celia

Should show up right away. Change tabs or refresh the page and the new total should appear.

Mike

Same for me and never worked. Maybe because I loaded up during the last sale.

Same for me too :/

I had the same experience.

Did you make sure that you’ve registered your gift card for online purchasing? I ran into the same problem two times ago when SB were being sold at a discount, but after making sure my cards were registered this last time they were discounted, all of the purchases I made went through properly.

aquac
aquac

Yes, it’s registered and even pin had been enabled.
was trying to get rid of the Stapes $200 GC from the recent AmEx offer..lol

Well, easy money is never that easy, I guess 😐

Abe

Are you guys using Mastercard GC’s? Went through no problem using Visa GC’s from Staples for this sale and last, but for whatever reason not for MC. I get exact same results as aquac.

same here. success using vgc, but never mgc

Mike

It didn’t work with Safeway VGC. I switched to a CC and worked no problem.

Steve

Add me to the list of people who tried to use a registered MC GC (from Staples) and got the notification that the purchase was successful only to find no increase in SBs and no payment charged to my card.

::major frowny face::

I was able to buy the 2000 SB option 4 times before getting the error message.

Was only able to get the 2000 SB twice and it kept showing error message even after couple minutes wait.

Same for me, Sam. John got ours!

This your noob version of MS Gman? Give me a vgc over SB any day. lol

I like to take things slow. 🍆

Ken

If people keep buying without a discount, they may discontinue the discounting. :/

San
San

That’s a good point to consider.

Gadget 🕵️

Maybe, but you can’t say that is necessarily going to happen. They fluctuate deals how they see fit. Do it, or don’t do it. I am sure some people would do it at a loss just to get a little MS over with… as the two other offers are at a loss.

And you do get a small discount when you cash out. Not really worth the effort at this point, but I imagine DoC referred a lot of us and hopefully getting a cut.

I know the one guy I referred is a real deadbeat and doesn’t do SB deals! Thanks JuicyJosh.

Derek
Derek

A good point, though MS is MS, and it’s possible profit here even with non-discounted SB.

Els

I can buy it again today.

Jeffrey

I did some calculations and I often come out slightly ahead even when buying SB at $10.99 for 1,000, because I’m using a card that gives 3% CB on these transactions and hitting my Swagbucks “daily goal” grants me a few dollars worth of bonus SB (paid in a lump sum monthly). I think everybody’s daily goal is calibrated a little differently, though.

Tim
Tim

Yours must be orders of magnitude more than mine, I’m only offered like $0.12 for both daily goals combined.

Fred
Fred

Your daily goal is based in part on your previous earnings – if you earn 500 SB per day routinely, your second daily goal (and the reward for it) will be much higher.

RB

Which card gives you 3% back on these kind of purchases?

Tim

I think I heard AT&T Access More was one, that’s the only one I know of.

Jeffrey
Jeffrey

A BofA Biz card that lets you select a 3% category.

Also got 4 today before the error. $80 more in MS (got $160 the other day with $16 profit), will definitely take it! Thanks DoC!

Got another 3 today b4 error. 7/25

So just to make sure I am understanding; these deals are good because:

*you get % back on credit card spending
*you can redeem for one $25GC for 2200 monthly
*you can also hit your daily goal with these and get bonus SB

Am I missing any other benefits? I always seem to miss the “purchasing SB deals” so I have never done one. Thanks!

There’s also the Aspiration deposit option for 1% off if you want just cash.

Fred
Fred

Keep in mind that that the only Aspiration redemption option is $10 (as far as I know) and you are limited by Swagbucks to two redemptions per day (as far as I know).

Fred
Fred

My bad, now they have an option for a $25 Aspiration redemption (2475 SB).

Fred
Fred

You can now cash out denominations of $50, $25, $10, and $5 to Aspiration with a 1% discount. $250 and $100 are available without a discount.

Josh

Another benefit is leveling up on Member Recognition

Midnight
Midnight

Do you happen to know if gain the previous levels rebate if you enroll at a higher level? Or if you get a rebate each time you level up? I was buying swagbucks and past one tier before enrollment. I accidentally bought past amethyst.

Fred

If you were referred by a friend, you will make them very happy as well.

Will the referring person get 10% bonus out of the sb bought? That sounds ridiculous!

Fred

Yep

*you can also hit your daily goal with these and get bonus SB

how do you confirm this? I dont see the bonus in my SB activity.. 🙁

Fred
Fred

The bonus is monthly. Shortly after the beginning of the month you will have the opportunity to claim it (I claimed mine on the 5th this month). If you mouseover Daily Goal right now, you will see “Show my Winning Streaks.” Next month when July’s bonus becomes available, there will be a link to claim your bonus in that area. You have like two weeks, so as long as you check it at least once a week you will be okay. Unfortunately, there is no tally to show you what the bonus will be other than going through day-by-day and noting what daily bonus you earned for each day.
