Swagbucks: Get $20 + $5 Credit with FanDuel Signup

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • FanDuel: Play daily or season long fantasy football, baseball, basketball and more for free until you win, plus get $5 free when you make your first deposit.
  • Make your first deposit today ($5+) and earn 2,000 SB.

The Fine Print

  • SB will appear as Pending for 32 days in your Shop Activity.
  • Must enter valid sign-up information, including credit card information to earn SB.
  • Offer may only be redeemed once (1) per user.

Our Verdict

Looks like a fairly easy $15 moneymaker, plus you get $5 FanDuel credit. I’ve never done sports betting so not sure exactly how it works, but please bet responsibly or you’ll lose more than you gained. Also keep 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 there’s always some risk involved.

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.

Hat tip to SD

Update: a reader notes that Mrrebates is offering $30 for signup.

FWIW — I had a $30 FanDuel offer on my account about 10 days ago, so I went for it, having never used FanDuel before. It did not track – contacted SB a few days later, have not heard back and offer hasn’t shown up in my history either. 🙁

Edit to add, I used the same “portal protocol” I always use with two other SB offers the same day that tracked just fine, so not sure what happened w/ the disconnect on this one.

“Portal Protocol” – Can you explain more about this? Thanks

My guess is that he follows the same set of rules every time he does one of these offers and that it normally works. For example, it is usually a good idea to stop your ad block, pause your anti-virus (if it has ad-block/web monitoring capabilities), etc…

Word of caution: I did this offer a bit more than a month ago, SB is refusing to pay it out, and FanDuel is refusing to withdraw my money ($5 + 2.xx I won in contests). The offer actually tracked within and showed 2000 SB as pending for 32 days. About 10 days in, I noticed the Shop Activity went down to 0 SB so I e-mailed support and got the typical “wait for 32 days” message. Contacted them again after 32 days and got “it’s not our fault, we cannot confirm with Fanduel” BS e-mail even though I provided screenshots of everything.

YMMV but I regret attempting/doing this offer.

Just did this FanDuel offer and deposited 5.01 dollars. SB does not show up yet (not even pending). Is that normal?

Definitely. It sometimes takes awhile for Swagbucks to show at all. I suggest you keep tabs on it and contact them after 32 days if the money still hasn’t posted. Just make sure to keep all your docs.

same here, deposited $5.01, no SB pending. Let’s wait and see.

FYI, this is more than a $15 moneymaker. If all goes well, I will get my deposited $5 + the bonus $5 to my PayPal, which makes this into a $25 moneymaker. If it tracks ofc, which is not guaranteed. At all.

Not quite – FanDuel does not let you withdraw the $5 bonus. They also don’t let you withdraw your initial $5 deposit unless you jump through a bunch of hoops (i.e., try to withdraw, contact them when it fails, explain the situation, and, ultimately, ask for a “refund”).

“Must enter valid sign-up information, including credit card information to earn SB.” I used a prepaid virtual visa GC from swagbucks to sign up, did not track yet.

Many offers from SB do not track immediately, but some weeks or days later show up as credit. Many times, SB does properly credit the SB offer and one must submit a ticket. YMMV.

I received 2000 bonus for purchase on 10/6/2018, credited on 11/7. I have not yet tried to withdraw but I will update results when I do. FWIW MrRebates offers $30 cashback, but it takes forever with there 90 day wait period. I sent two referrals that way, both are still in the 90 day pending status still (purchase date of 10/19/2018). I will update when with results at or around 90 day mark.

My drop Account has an offer for 40,000 points ($40) to fund a FanDuel account. States it may take up to 70 days to post.

Andrew

I also see a $40 (40k pts) offer in Drop, under Entertainment offers. I just did it, and it showed up as “Pending” in Drop after a few minutes. (But it will take up to 70 days to actually post.) I’ll personally add that I’ve had really great tracking rates with Drop.

How much did you fund the account with when going through Drop? Drop does not say any specific amount to fund for the 40000 points offer. I just funded with $5.01 hoping Drop will credit 40000 points in 70 days without having to go through hassles.

Looks like MrRebates also has a $30 cashback offer for opening a new FanDuel account and funding it.

This morning I got a notification from the Drop App confirming my FanDuel account opening and funding for the 40000 Drop points offer. Below is the message.

Hang Tight!
Your points for FanDuel are pending, but won’t be for long. They’ll appear in your account ASAP, automatically.

Andrew

I did $5, which I assume is the FanDuel minimum, and I got the same pending message as you. I’ve had really good experiences with Drop; I’ve never had a Pending payout get lost. (I’ve also had several offers successfully pay out after a few weeks with no pending notification in between.)

Thanks!

Fanduel credit expires on Jan 25. I’m not really a sports gambler. Is there any way to salvage the $5 credit without having to bet?

James B.

No big surprise. Swagbucks did not post the 2,000 SB and I am submited a ticket yesterday.

I signed up 01/09 and 2,000 swagbucks posted on 02/10/19.

I bought in $5 and got $5 credit. Played $5 and lost before the credit expired. Saving the remainder for baseball season.
