The Offer

Direct Link to offer (search for it within Revenue Universe)

  • Revenue Universe via Swagbucks is offering 6256 ($62.56) when you sign up for a new one-year subscription with TunnelBear VPN which costs $49.99.

The Fine Print

  • New TunnelBear customers only
  • If you cancel within 30 days your Swagbucks will be removed
  • The monthly plan does not qualify for Swagbucks
  • You will receive your SB within 5 minutes

Our Verdict

Not sure it’s worth doing this just for the $6.41 profit since there’s always a risk something could go wrong (might be sales tax eating into the profit as well). But this certainly looks like a good way to get a free year of VPN with a small profit to boot. Be sure to cancel before the end of the year if you don’t want to pay for a second year. Let us know your thoughts on Tunnelbear VPN in the comments below.

There’s usually a good deal or two to be had when Revenue Universe goes on their double-rewards promos; thanks to readers Kyle and Matt for sending this one in. There’s also a deal for Norton VPN; let us know if you see any others.

(Side note: it’s probably not a good idea to use Swagbucks when you are using a VPN since I’ve heard they sometimes close accounts of people who login via VPN.)

I did this deal back when it was around black Friday with a $10 money maker on a 2yr subscription. Money showed up within 5 minutes no problem.

Tunnel best service is ok. It works, it does what it promises. The technical aspect of the service is lacking – no real time stats on speed, bandwidth used, no choice of server location within a country (e.g. you can’t pick where in the US you want to connect, you just connect to the US and the app automatically chooses for you unlike day Windscribe that lets you pick… chicago, DC, etc.). Youtube works, but other media services are not supported – netflix for example.

You can’t beat free vpn service though.

Considering my motivation for vpn (access US websites appearing like I’m in the US) I’m AOK with it. BJ’s and Target do not work outside of the US but tunnel bear rectifies it.

I saw 10,326 SB when you pay $109.99 for 3 years subscription

Same, but not a money maker like the 1-year offer.

Completed offer for 7,200SB yesterday, but didn’t track. Submitted ticket to Revenue Universe after an hour and credited within 24 hours. Relieved that wasn’t the hassle I was expecting.

I had the same exact experience.

Did this yesterday. It didn’t track and didn’t credit. Tunnel Bear didn’t even send me an invoice. So, had to print the receipt from “my account” section and raise a ticket in RU. Thankfully SB credited me after that.
On the other hand, they rejected my Norton credit claim saying “not a new customer” even though I had used a new email id.

I am also seeing 6,792 SB when you pay $84.99 for the 2-year subscription. Will this stack with the promotion seen on the homepage?

“Earn TRIPLE SB on all offers through Revenue Universe!”

The 6792 IS the triple SB offer

This is YMMV, I already did this offer last time it came. Now I don’t see the 1-year option, only 2 & 3 year options.

It’s not dead–possibly targeted. It was on my portal and I just completed it. Took about 10 minutes to appear in SB.
