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
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.)
