[Expired] Swagbucks: Get $35 with Hulu Subscription Signup

Update 9/4/19: Deal is back, doesn’t seem stackable with the 50% off deal on Hulu unfortunately.

Update 8/4/19: Deal is back and 3,500 Swagbucks again

Update 7/22/19: Bonus is now 3,500 Swagbucks. (ht reader Rajuncajun)

Update 7/21/19: Bonus is now 3,000 Swagbucks. Not as good as the previous 3,350 deal. Hat tip to reader Roman M

Update 6/27/19: Bonus is now 3,350 Swagbucks. (Update: there’s also an offer from MyPoints for 6,000 points which is worth a bit more – I think that’s worth around $39.)

Second Update 6/6/19: Now it’s back at 3,000 Swagbucks, increased from a few hours ago. (ht reader Charlie)

Update 6/6/19: Offer is back, this time for 2,500 Swagbucks. (ht reader CR)

Update 6/16/18: Offer is back.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Swagbucks is currently offering 3,350 Swagbucks (worth at least $33.5) when signing up for a Hulu streaming subscription.

 

The Fine Print

  • SB will appear as Pending for 32 days.
  • Please note: If you cancel your membership within 32 days, your SB may be revoked.
  • Offer applies to new and eligible returning subscribers only.
  • Must submit valid name, address, credit card and other subscription information to earn SB.
  • Offer may only be redeemed once (1) per user.
  • If you are not credited within 32 days of offer completion, you have 14 days to contact the Swagbucks Help Center for further investigation. Help Center tickets submitted after the 14 day grace period are not eligible for further investigation and SB.

Our Verdict

Cheapest Hulu subscription is the one with commercials which costs $5.99 per month; the terms used to require just 8 days before cancelling, but the new terms state 32 days, so you’ll end up paying for two months. All in, it’s still $18 moneymaker with 2 free months of Hulu.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • If you’ve done the offer in the past, it should error out when clicking through the link. If the click-through works that’s a good sign that you are eligible. (I believe Hulu typically makes you re-eligible for promotions after a year of not being a subscriber, but it may vary based on the promotion. Brand new members are eligible as well, of course.)
  • Remember to cancel if you no longer want the Hulu subscription. Put it on your calendar, whatever.
  • 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 also get a bonus of up to $13 by using a referral link.

Not hard to hit $50- just sign up for Hulu with live TV plus Showtime. Comes to about $52. That’s how I’ve been getting nearly- free Hulu with TV for almost a year since that offer came out. I’m going to miss Hulu come 5/23.

Same here. Been almost a year of free Hulu.

I try to do the offer but it keeps telling me page unavailable 🙁

they never gave me credit for earlier Hulu offer. I ADVISE against this. Emails to their tech support went unanswered!

SB
SB

I agree with this. Swagbucks are great when it posts but the promos run by TrialPay (this and the GameFly subscription?) have never credited for me!

Nik

My Gamefly credits too were missing for long time. I contacted their support and they asked me some details about the offer. I was given the credits immediately after that. Try contacting them.

Signed up for Swagbucks. Signed up for the Hulu offer. Didn’t get the credit, so I emailed support. They deactivated my account. HORRIBLE!!!!

Flip

You just have to keep bugging support. I use photoscape and screenshot such big transactions. I cannot stress documenting enough to back up your claims. Also what I have found it is very important to use certain browsers. My standard browser is Opera but I never use it for offers such as this or surveys. I only use Chrome.

Update
I went to sign up and actually had an old Hulu account. So I simply deleted my old account I did have a banner show up in the right-hand corner and clicked on it and it said I activated the 3200 SB bonus. It is an absolute must to click the little banner. I simply went back in and recreated an account with my SB email address. Immediate credit and immediately took 2500 out into my PayPal account.

hi Flip, how did you delete your old account?

3200 SB posted immediately, I signed-up for 7.99 plan. So it is $24 moneymaker.

Same. Posted within an hour.

Last Hulu promo never posted. Emailed tech support, assured me they were working on it. Then account was mysteriously deactivated. I definitely never abused my account at all and didn’t have multiples or anything stupid like that.

Don’t waste your time or money on any Swagbucks “deals.”

ShopAtHome is also offering $32 back.

I know this is unethical, but is there any work around if it says you have already completed this offer? I did something similar over a year ago and would like to get it again

Refer your SO to SwagBucks and have him/her sign up?

I would advise against this. My account got deleted because of this (I later found out the reason).

If you have a second SB account, you could do the offer, and just pause your existing membership for the month…I think that would work?

It’s dead now, back to 2100 SB

MyPoints current is offering 5000 points for Hulu through May 21st. You can redeem $25 through Paypal for 3970 points, so 5000 is worth $31.48. I assume the $32 offer is available on SB again as well, but I have had a tougher time getting offers credited with SB lately compared to MyPoints.

Thank you so much for this heads up Fred!! I had already done a smaller Hulu offer in swagbucks so wasn’t eligible there. MyPoints just credited me 5,000 immediately. Worked out really nice because I did a small money maker buying Pledge awhile ago that gave me a little in mypoints and a little in swagbucks… so today I was able to cash in almost perfectly 40 dollars in Amazon giftcards. 🙂

“Oops! Looks like you’ve completed this offer.

Many of our advertisers limit the number of times you can complete an offer. But don’t worry, we have a lot of offers, so please go back and try another one.”

Crap. Has a $50 off $50 Amex offer.

The add-ons and premium live TV options don’t get charged by Hulu until 5/25, if opting in today, because of the 7-day free trial. Bummer.

Yup, were’ about to miss HULU too — thanks to those amex offers. One thing NOBODY should do is try that miserable, clunky, extremely slow “limited commercials” plan. First, it’s NOT limited — you’ll get more commercials crap per hour than you would over the air. (25 minutes and more of such corporate garbage) Second, there’s something terribly wrong with the limited commercials plan technically…. When we tried it, it kept freezing…. every few minutes, especially during the commercials. When we ran the no commercials version, never had a single glitch. (except for the fact that even the no-commercials package — for certain popular programs — has lots of commercials!!!! ggggrrrr….)

Am thinking to invest the money saved from HULU and put it into a better over-the-air antennae…. (already get 3 networks)

Celia

I have no problem with the limited commercials. It makes me not sit around and watch TV. I get up during the commercials and get a lot done. It’s only an hour total for the shows I watch. I’ve timed it multiple times.

The freeze is an issue when you’re watching on some browsers. I had that in Safari when I had Ad blocker. I switched to Firefox with no problems since. I use it mostly on AppleTV but I absolutely hate the new interface.

swagbucks posted instantly. I disable adblock plugin in browser settings when doing these offers

Can you have a Shopathome account when you already have a Swagsbucks account (I see them listed as ‘partners’)?

Can you sign up with Hulu at Shopathome and receive the credit, even though Swagbucks gives you the ‘oops, you already used this offer’ message?

Is there a general reason to avoid Shopathome?

J
J

P.S.: I guess the same questions apply towards getting a MyPoints account…

Fred
Fred

J, I don’t know anything about ShopAtHome, but I have both Swagbucks and Mypoints accounts (with the same email address). I don’t know of any instances where someone has been deemed ineligible for a Swagbucks offer because they completed the same one on MyPoints (or vice versa). Although obviously signing up for certain offers with both could cause you to run afoul of a requirement that you be a “new member.”

Tried signing up for this Hulu promotion with Swagbucks and the $25 referral bonus with TopCashBack and neither site is tracking my purchases. Currently not a fan of either – never have had an issue with Advantage eshopping portal or coupincabin. Guess I am just sticking with those!

is it possible to use both swagbucks and the Amex offers?
