Swagbucks: Get $110 Back On Walmart+ Annual Membership ($98 Cost, $33 Moneymaker)

Update 4/21/21: It’s up to $110 now, highest ever, wow (previous high was $100). Similar deal on MyPoints. See this post for stacking ideas with $10 Chase Offer/BofA and 10% Dosh (I don’t see Google Pay anymore). Should be a $33 (minus tax) with $12 from Swagbucks, $10 from Chase/BofA, and $11 from Dosh; plus, you might actually find the subscription useful, as I do. Hat tip to reader Matthew

The Offer

New link | Another link | MyPoints

  • Swagbucks is offering 5,000 Swagbucks (worth $50) when you sign up for the Walmart+ annual membership which costs $98.
  • You can also get 1,000 Swagbucks (worth $10) when you signup for the monthly membership which costs $12.95.

Regardless which option you choose, you can also get $5 back on your first purchase of $35+ when you signup via Swagbucks. (Purchase must be made with in 21 days of starting your Walmart+ Trial. Cash Back will post within 60 days.)

The Fine Print

  • SB will be awarded after the Free Trial ends.
  • SB will only be earned for the sign up of a Walmart+ Membership.
  • Purchases made at Walmart.com are not eligible for SB

Post History

Update 4/13/21: It’s back up to $50 Swagbucks and about the same on MyPoints.

Update 2/18/21: Readers Bob and Nerukkadi report getting manual adjustment for the 10,000SB; lots of us who signed up in the first wave didn’t get the credit automatically, and hopefully support should work to get credit. Other readers are saying they were only given 5000SB, hopefully that will get fixed upon request.

Update 1/30/21: Now both Swagbucks and MyPoints have it at $75. (Still available on Swagbucks as of 2/3/21.)

Update 1/29/21: Swagbucks is still at $50, but MyPoints is up to 12,000 which is worth around $75 when redeemed for PayPal. Sounds like this offer is slated to be around until February 3rd. Plus you get $30 Google Pay, 10% Dosh, $5 Chase Offer, $2.50 first purchase. See this post for a step by step walk-through.

Update 1/27/21: Back down to $50 now.

Update 1/26/21: Swagbucks increased now from $50 to $75 (page isn’t fully updated, but it looks like 7,500 is the true correct number). 

Update 12/20/20: You can also get $30 back from Google Pay which can stack with the Swagbucks deal, and with Dosh and Chase Offers as well for a quadruple dip. The Swagbucks deal is down to $50 now, but still a great deal when combined with Google Pay and the rest.

Update 12/16/20: The $100 is now expired, but there’s now a new offer available for $75.  The regular offer showing here is for $50, but if you go to the Offers page you’ll see a $75 offer. (ht neo) Stack this with $25 from Dosh which has been working for many (as discussed below), plus $10 from the Chase Offers/Bank Amerideal, and it still quite a nice offer, albeit lower than the previous $100 deal. Update 2: actually, in the redirect it shows $50; not clear what’ll actually happen here if it’ll end up $50 or $75.

Update 12/9/20:

Wow, they’ve now increased the cashback rate to 10,000 Swagbucks ($100) for many people everyone at this link. Plus you can get $2.50 with your first order. I can’t imagine not doing this deal now, only thing left now is the risk if there’s some issue with the tracking. Otherwise, it’s a free year + a few dollar moneymaker (maybe a slight cost if you have sales tax). Similar deal on MyPoints as well. Same deal on Shopathome too.

You can also get $10 back with Chase Offers/Bank Amerideal if targeted (should work as long as the payment is made by 1/15/20), making it a moneymaker. You can also try using a card linked to Dosh to pay for the membership and get an extra $25 10% bonus. That Dosh deal requires using the Dosh link, but you can try and see if it posts based on the card alone (seems to work).

Be sure to turn off adblockers, etc; there’s $100 at stake here. (I personally did not do the trial extension which you’ll see Walmart+ offering in case it messes up with the tracking. This is being overly cautious as it should track fine even if you do the trial extension.) I’m still on trial, and don’t see anything now; could be it won’t show up in your Swagbucks account until after the trial ends. Many others in the comments are seeing the Swagbucks as already pending – it seems that those who signed up without a free trial get the pending credit immediately from Swagbucks and get credit from Dosh right away.

Readers in the comments describe how to sign up without a free trial: signup first with the free trial, NOT using Swagbucks, then cancel that 15 day trial right away (it cancels out immediately), then click through Swagbucks and sign up for the annual subscription.

Here’s a good step-by-step of what to do.

Second update on 12/2/20: apparently, some are still seeing the $75 + $5 offer while others are seeing the $50 + $5 offer. Also, there’s currently a Chase Offer/Bank Amerideal for $10 back which stacks well.

Update 12/2/20: Offer is back down to $50 (plus $5 with shopping); or $10 with monthly paid subscription (plus $5, I think?); or $5 with free trial (plus $5, I think?). Walmart+ got much more interesting due to their new free shipping offer, so I’m reposting this now.

Update 11/2/20: Swagbucks now offering 7,500 Swagbucks (worth $75). You an also get another 500 ($5) with your first purchase of $35+. There’s also a Chase Offer for $10 back which brings down final cost to just $8. (It might code as Walmart to get 5x points with Chase Freedom for Q4 2020 as well.)

Update 10/28/20: Stack with $10 back from Chase Offers.

Our Verdict

This is a terrific deal for someone interested in the Walmart+ subscription service; it cuts the cost of the annual fee down less than half. The monthly $10 Swagbucks offer is also interesting for someone who wants to try out the service as it cuts down the cost of one month from $12.95 to just $2.95.

Dosh also has a deal for 5-10% back, but this deal is obviously much better. Can’t hurt to link the card to Dosh as well in case it tracks without the click-through.

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.

FWIW, I went through SB to sign up yesterday and got an email this morning that I had 11,000 points pending from the purchase. When signing up for WM+, it defaulted to the free trial first. I canceled it right away and then signed up again through the SB link, which allowed the annual fee to be charged immediately rather than two weeks from now when the trial ends. Hopefully that helps.

Thanks for confirming — I started/canceled my free trial yesterday and added Chase Flex card to Dosh (they say wait a day for purchases to track properly)

Signed up for $98 annual plan just now and got 10% Dosh confirmation right away ($9.80 pending) — waiting on $10 Chase Offer and 11k SB confirmation (clicked the link a few times before purchasing)

How did you do with Dosh? I didn’t get the confirmation right away

Followed this but not sure if required to:
doctorofcredit.com/step-by-step-on-how-to-signup-for-walmart/

Saved card to Dosh yesterday then today I clicked on the 10% “Shop” link in the Dosh app — it’ll just open mobile browser to generic sign up page (walmart.com/plus) so I closed it afterwards.

Used my laptop w/ Chrome to go to SB — clicked the tracking link a few times before signing up.

I wasn’t charged tax on membership (paid $98 even for “WALMART GROCERY”) — Dosh had trouble tracking memberships in the past where tax was charged for other membership offers (other people can confirm if WalmartPlus tracked fine w/ tax or not)

Yeah…..No. Not doing this offer. Too much on the line to get stiffed by Swagbucks again like I had in the past on pretty big deals.

I wouldn’t do this offer unless you really can find value in having a Walmart+ because you might get stuck paying full price for it. The offer is notorious for not tracking and you will likely need to spend time chasing support for your points. Some people are still dealing with the Dec offer. I was lucky enough to get the full 10K after my 3rd tickets with support. Just my 2-cents

Yeah, thanks but no. Not a big fan of dealing with the SB support and this one does not seem to track. Still have to fight with them over the Sunbasket offer.

To those who did this is the last round, can I know how this transaction showed up in your credit card statement? Is it logged as Walmart.com purchase? The reason I am asking this is: I don’t have BOA/Chase offer for Walmart+, but I have a BOA offer — Earn 10% cash back on all of your Walmart.com purchases, until a $14.00 cash back maximum is reached. Offer only valid on Walmart.com purchases.

I am not sure if this Walmart+ qualifies.

Thanks.

It looks like it does not restrict 1 time per user from the terms. I have done this deal before with a lower reward. Can I do this again? I

Unless we can find a commonality amount the individuals who signed up for this deal so future readers can avoid the same problem, I will be skipping this one.

But I have a few questions for other readers who had problems with this deal tracking.

What browser did you use? Do you have an adblocker or other extensions installed.

Did you use the same email on your SB account to sign up for wm+? This has been a problem for other deals in the past.

If it didn’t track, what did you do to get the bonus? Did you message support multiple times? Did you include you worked for a large media company in your listing (someone else did this)? Did you write your support ticket in all caps?

Just here to gather data.

I disable adblock whenever I do any cashback deals to avoid issues. For this deal, email address doesn’t matter, I used safari on my phone, I signed up for the free trial, cancelled, and went through swagbucks and paid my membership. It tracked after about 1 week. Btw, I recorded the whole thing on my phone

I always go into an incognito window in chrome and do it all from there in a smooth concise action without navigating off the page and workflow at all. There was something different about this swagbuck’s deal, probably because it was a free trial to start, but this did not follow my normal success rate even though my behavior was the same. Furthermore, swag bucks has always been amazing at giving me credit quickly and without hassle when I message them. That was not the case with this Walmart deal. They responded quickly but only gave me a few dollars worth of swagbucks, and then ignored three additional emails following back up. I eventually created an entirely new ticket and did the name dropping like I mentioned (including saying in caps at the top that this was my fourth attempt at getting a reply from them).

I followed the same sort of process with this, and I do that for other cashback portals as well.

I hadn’t used Swagbucks before this, but I’ve never had trouble with other portals tracking. But this one didn’t track.

I recently submitted a ticket, replied to the automated message, and got a human response and 5000 Swagbucks. I then opened a new ticket 2 days ago about getting the remaining 5000, replied to the automated message, and am now awaiting a human response.

Interesting to hear Jake’s account of how differently Swagbucks handled his support requests on this deal.
