[Expired] Swagbucks: Get $43 For Opening Axos/UFB High-Yield Savings Account; $22 For Checking Account (No Requirements)

The Offer

Direct Link to offer (use this link to find Revenue Universe offers and then search for Axos)

Swagbucks has two offers for new Axos/UFB bank accounts:

  • Open a high-yield Axos/UFB savings account and get 4,293 ($42.93).
  • Open an Axos Essential Checking account and get 2,196 ($21.96).

The Fine Print

  • Savings account must be funded with $100 to qualify.
  • Checking account must be funded with $25 to qualify.
  • New Axos customers only.
  • You will receive your SB within the next couple of days.

Avoiding Fees

Both of these accounts do not have any monthly fees.

Our Verdict

Doing a site search, it doesn’t appear that this bank typically offers signup bonuses. $43/$22 is not much, but keep in mind that these Swagbucks won’t get a Form 1099 and might not be taxable (please consult your tax advisor on this), in which case it’s value would be higher. Additionally, there are no requirements here and no fees, just open the account with $100/$25 which you can pull out whenever you want.

The savings account can be useful for some people to have anyway as it offers a competitive 1.80% APY rate (requires $10,000+). We’ll add the account to our List of Best Savings Accounts. Note: you need $10,000 minimum balance to get the 1.80% rate.

Hat tip to an anonymous reader

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.

Can you sign up for both and get both rewards?

“New Axos customers only” makes me think it’s either one or the other, but I’ll wait to see if anyone reports back with a data point.

I don’t see this

Any DPs on hard pulls or Chex-sensitivity for this bank?

Don’t see it in my account.

For everyone’s sake, this offer come from SB partner “Revenue Universe”. You wont find it in SB search.

Good tip. I bet most people wouldn’t have found this offer without your comment.

Calvin

– No credit card funding.
– ChexSystems yes
– funding options: bank transfer / wire / check deposit (mobile or mail)

You have to have 10,000 dollars to get 1.8 otherwise rate is 0%

I wonder if you put $20,000 in the saving account you’ll get 1.80% from the first dollar, or only on the $10,000 to $20,000 portion. If the latter, that’s a net of 0.9%, no deal.

I have an N26 account which is “offered by Axos Bank”. Anyone know if this counts as being a new customer still for these offers?

Signed up for the savings, Discover wasn’t on the list for instant transfer so had to do the trial deposits, hopefully the few days wait to fund the account won’t affect the SB posting.

I’m in a similar position. What’s frustrating is they wouldn’t even accept one of the instant transfer bank accounts even though I know the log-in information was correct. Here’s to not having to submit a ticket.

I applied and got a page saying my application is “Under Review”
I always have issues with Swagbucks not paying out, so I’m guessing this “review” step will cause the credit to not be recorded… but we’ll see

While the offer also pops up through the Revenue Universe offers on MyPoints (3,000 points for the checking and 6,000 points for the savings), I get a message saying “This offer is not available to you.”

Eric

The MyPoints offer is worse. 6000 can get you 1.6 $25 Visa gc, which is only equal to $40.

You can check the offer status,i.e. if points are pending, by
1. first login into your SB account
2. clicking on the direct link above
3. then click on customer support (head icon) on the far right in the top “Revenue Universe Offer Wall” bar
Hope this helps.

Not seeing Revenue Universe option, what am I missing? Thank you!

When you click the DoC link, it takes you directly to Revenue Universe (inner window) that is framed by SwagBucks page.

The head icon in the upper right of that page just shows you clicked through…

I want to give a whole lotta likes for this. PS says “please allow 3 days for credit” on both the savings and checking. When I tried to open the accounts it recognized my email and said I had an account, but I just redid it with new emails for each and it was no problem.

Same boat with being an existing customer. Less than optimistic that it will work out.

Mine was applied for over the weekend, went pending review, approved on 3/9, and funded today 3/10. It now says “Please allow 11 minute(s) for credit.” (?!?)

As mentioned by “J2” below, you need $10,000+ for the 1.80% rate

One of my Netspend accounts is through Axos. I wonder if this is disqualifying as a new Axos customer.

Apparently I have an “Axos Invest” account.. apparently anyone who had a WiseBanyan investment account got bought out by Axos. Does this disqualify anyone who had a WiseBanyan account as an “existing customer”?
