[Dead] Swagbucks: Buy Swagbucks With 10% Discount (e.g Buy $20 Worth For $18)

Sale has now ended.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Swagbucks is selling Swagbucks with a 10% discount. This means that you can buy 2,000 Swagbucks for $18. 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

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 here. Try 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.

It allowed only once this time. SB is tightening it slowly with restrictions.. 🙁
Edit – Was able to get 2000SB second time.
Thanks Doc

Wait for several minutes, and it can be bought again.

Was able to buy 2000 7x. 4x using Citi DC and 3x using BB+. Some nice, small MS/profit to be had. Thanks DoC!

You should mention in the article not all states are eligible. This is illegal in Connecticut so if that is your address on your SB account it will just say “this feature is not currently available for you.”

Why is it illegal in Connecticut ? ..

Not sure if he meant illegal but there is state restrictions for buying SB. Not sure why though.

Yeah, as per: https://help.swagbucks.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000936746-How-do-I-purchase-SB-

Purchasing SB is currently limited to residents in the United States. However, residents of AZ, CT, MD, and ND are not allowed to make SB purchases due to applicable state law.

It actually took a long time before I found that information. I just thought they only offered the function to a percentage of accounts and I was just not targeted.

What does Swagbucks get out of this? I just use the Visa gift cards I get from them to buy more gift cards and repeat that cycle. But always nervous they’re about to go belly-up when they do quick cash-grabs like this.

Has anyone ever figured out why they do this? If people are redeeming for PayPal how is this not just pure money-losing for them?

Thanks! I needed 170 SB to redeem $25 Amazon GC. Purchased 200 points for $1.80

Was able to buy 7, so free $14. Deposited right into paypal because I already have a decent stockpile (you can only redeem one VGC on sale once per month, and that’s limited to $25 VGCs). Thanks!

I was able to buy the 500 SB option 5 times and the 2000 SB option 4 times (alternated between the 2) before I started getting the error. Couldn’t buy anymore (including the 200 SB option). Looks like it’s a limit of 9 transactions.

Data point: Now erroring out after seven 2000 point buys and one 500 point buy. Tried waiting a few minutes and tried different CCs. Still, bought 14,500 points. Thanks, DoC!

Any trick to transfer to PayPal? I keep getting the error that I don’t have a verified account, when I do.

Fred

I think there’s a limitation of two Paypal redemptions per day.

Celia
Celia

Fred Thanks, but that’s not the issue. I can’t do it at all. It keeps saying I don’t have a verified account.

K-Man

Oh this could be it. I should have made $50.00 transfer

Your paypal account needs to be the same e-mail address as your swagbuck’s.

Celia
Celia

It is. Name on the PayPal account is also the name on Swagbucks.

Edit: I think I figured it out. I don’t have a bank account linked to my PP account. I had unlinked it months ago when I closed the checking account. I’ll link one again and see if that works. Thanks for the replies.

I kept having the same issue and then I realized that the name on your Swagbucks account has to match your PayPal account exactly. Hope that is helpful.
