How to Win the Santa's Helpers Team Challenge; Expert Tips and Tricks

Another Team Challenge is here! For those of you who are not familiar with team challenges, these fun events give you an opportunity to gain points as a team to win a prize, normally a Swag Up (a rebate on your next gift card). Points are not the same as Swagbucks. If you are new to Swagbucks I recommend you check out my guide to earning 80+ a month with Swagbucks.
From the team challenge page:"The challenge begins Monday, December 11th at 8am PT/11am ET so get in a giving mood. The Team Challenge ends Friday, December 15th at 12pm PT/3pm ET, but we encourage everyone to stay in the holiday spirit through New Years of course! 

All members who participate and contribute at least 600 points to their team's total will receive a SB bonus! Members of the 1st place team will receive 100 SB and members of the 2nd place team will receive a 50 SB bonus! You'll receive your bonus by 5pm PT on December 15th."

Doing small offers on discover will be the fastest way to earn points. RadiumOne, PeanutLabs and other walls have dozens of 1 sb offers, and each of these will be worth 20 points for the team challenge. Mobile discover offers are worth 10 points each. Check out some of these too some of them have great payouts for not a ton of work. Also check adgate for the Insurance Branch offers.
One option is  to check the sponsored videos section and there are multiple options, I start by clicking on the guy with a laptop. Normally this takes about 10 separate clicks but only takes about two to three minutes. It's worth 2 sb each time you complete it and can sometimes be done 15+ times a day. If you see a girl in a tank top, always click on it, it'll be about 30 seconds, you must interact with the ad in some way, and it credits 2 sb each time. The others I do less often because they take more time and sometimes have issues crediting.

Do some watch when you get a chance, it's worth 15 points per completed playlist. Check out my instructions for doing this the quickest way to make the most through watch on the computer. This includes watch, Toolbar Tv .  NCrave is  being counted as watch this time around, and is also excellent for general earning.  The 1 sb ones will be the quickest way to get points. Try this list of the shortest videos to earn. Earning on the Swagbucks TV app will contribute 10 points to your team

If you want to boost your search wins I recommend following my instructions here to maximize your earnings there, this can help you get your daily list finished daily. For general earning check out my Advanced Guide to Swagbucks.

Visit any store from the featured shops and you'll contribute 5 points to your team! This is an excellent way to get quick points for your team. Max of 10 stores.

I encourage you to check the Swagbucks subreddit or the Swaggernaut Facebook group for more helpful hints! As always, feel free to check out the rest of my blog and all of the tips and tricks for earning money online! I'll try to keep this post updated daily with any new information that I have, so check back daily!

A couple of recent offers that are working. Make sure to do these on desktop with your adblocker turned off and using the same email as you use for Swagbucks for the best chance of crediting. The Blue Apron, Dollar Shave Club, Hulu, and Gamefly offers all credited for me, and are money makers. They're great for getting your daily bonus and things you already need/use.

If you're looking to make a little extra during this time period, I also recommend you check out the instGC Holiday Bonus!

My Guide to Making Money Online For Christmas Shopping.

There are  dozens of sites out there that will pay you to watch videos, do tasks or surveys to get cash or gift cards. These are often referred to as get paid to (GPT) sites. Sifting through and finding the easiest to use, and the ones that have the most options can be difficult. Some sites have 6 week waiting periods to cash out, others make you verify your address in order to cash out. I have found a few that have worked well for me in this post. Each of these sites has their pros and cons, I have put them in order of what I like the most.

Join Swagbucks!Swagbucks
I find Swagbucks to be one of the easiest to use GPT sites. Combine a fantastic site with loads of options to earn 6 easy to use mobile apps, and this is by far one of the easiest sites to use. You can also earn cash back on most online shopping sites. With daily and monthly bonuses you can easily make over $100 on this site each month. Check out my guide here on how to get started. I have now made over $2150 with this site alone!

You Can Get Free Gift Cards For Shopping, Searching and Discovering What's Online at Swagbucks.com











InstaGC

1. Register. You can register for an account by clicking this link here. You get 10 points for free when you join and you can use your email, Facebook, Twitter, or Google account to join you must verify your email.

2. Complete tasks, watch videos complete surveys. The watch function is completely passive, and has a better payout than some sites. Click on the earn tab and then click on watch videos. You can play all 2 playlists on one computer at the same time, which adds up fast. There are many tasks to choose from. They will be displayed on the dashboard when you log-in. Activities include watching videos, completing surveys, shopping, completing offers/free-trials, and ad walls. I recommend paying attention to what people are completing in the feed on the right of the screen, the higher % that complete, the more likely an offer will payout. EngagmeTV is another semi passive way of earning.

3. Cash out. Once you receive enough coins, you can cash out for gift cards to large retailers or direct deposits to PayPal. The biggest advantage of InstaGC is it is literally instant. Your gift card is immediately redeemable as soon as you cash out.

Right now they have their Holiday Bonus promotion going where you can earn an extra 10%!

Inboxdollars 
Gives you cash for tasks, surveys, watching videos and for just confirming paid emails. There are bonuses for watching a certain amount of videos a week, and with search function you get a bonus for doing searches 4 days a week. There are limited payout options and the payout threshold is $30. With a referral link, you get $5 just for signing up to help you get started! Additionally their paid emails net you .02 per email you confirm them.

Their watch feature works very well, and you can make up to $.50 a day with this. They have an app that can run videos as well. 


Earnhoney

Earnhoney is a site I've been trying out the last few months and has really been paying off.
I'd start with running videos.
The videos will autoplay one after another with an advertisement played at the beginning of most videos. This is the most passive ways to earn with EarnHoney. It must be the active tab of your browser, but can be run on tablets and their apps sometimes work. After every advertisement you'll earn "Nectar" which is worth a part of a Honey Dollar (HD). This is similar to SBTV desktop where the bar fills up till you earn your SB.


You can also do tasks and complete surveys to earn. 100 HD=$1 USD. Cashout for Paypal, Amazon gift card, bitcoin, or Visa Giftcard. They've recently added the VIP redemption option which come much more quickly once you qualify. Click here to get a 50HD bonus just for signing up!


                                                 
 Gifthulk
The big upside to this site is that once you get past a certain amount, you get cash back on any redemption, the more you do the better this site is as you rank up from bronze to platinum.  This site has a good amount of other offers and surveys though that can help you bring in money on the side. Sign up with my link for a bonus!

One of my favorite daily tasks to do here is the card draw. It's simple and you can make money simply with this.

Some fountain of youth codes to get you started:
Code                Amount
9usptr8bc     13
356enbtkw     20
uz2zq2mmk     31

InstaGC Holiday Bonus

The InstaGC Holiday Bonus is back! make sure you make the most of it!

If you haven't used it before InstaGC is a get paid to(GPT) site like Swagbucks where you do tasks, complete offers, do surveys, and watch videos to earn points. Those points can then be redeemed for gift cards. The big difference between other sites and instagc? your gift cards come immediately. So no waiting for 2-4 weeks for your reward to come in.


What's the best way to earn? I like doing watch(click the earn tab then click watch videos) and then doing offers that I see are crediting well for others in the panel to the right. EngagemeTV can be played on smartphones or computers and is a nice passive way to earn as well. Hypermx offers take a few clicks but are easy to do and can really rack up the points!


The Holiday Bonus offer gives you the opportunity to earn an additional 10% of anything you make weekly. Don't have a InstaGC account? Signup here. Start out by trying a couple of 5-10 point offers on Adwall(try insurance branch offers, submit zip and earn), Acorn, Adwall(try Dailybreak offers, they're easy and fun), and Peanut labs.


So what is the InstaGC holiday bonus?

From the InstaGC Facebook Page:



The Holiday bonus event is now active. Earn up to a 10% bonus from Oct 15th through Dec 30th.
This year we have made some changes to the event to have it work in conjunction with your current weekly bonus. No more need to reach specific goals to unlock a higher percentage. You will earn the same way you do now for the weekly bonus.
During the holiday bonus period you will be able to earn a maximum 10% bonus every week for your activity on site. We will be increasing the amount of bonus units you earn from all activities as well to make reaching the max bonus easier (up to 200 units daily instead of 100 units).
The holiday bonus will also feature a bonus unit rollover. 50% of your total bonus percentage earned for a week will "rollover" to the following week giving you a headstart in earning the highest bonus you can.





Follow the InstaGC facebook page for codes and updates on easy to do tasks.

8 Apps You Can Install On Your Phone to Make $50+ a Week

Sometimes you just need a little extra money. If you have a smartphone here are 8 apps you can download today that can help make you $25 or more per week. I have rated these based upon my own personal experience with each/ease of use. Some are more passive than others, and there is far more to be made with most of these apps than just $25.

1. Swagbucks- by following this guide you can easily make $7 a week. Much more can be made on this site, including cash back on online purchases, watching videos, doing surveys and more. Giftcards available as low as $2. Only one phone can be used per account, but multiple devices allowed per household Check out my guide for more information.



2. Slidejoy puts ads on your swipe screen. On average it nets .15-20 cents a day meaning a possible 1.40/week Lowest payout is 100 points, but points are only redeemable the month after they are earned, so points earned in January are available in February.


3. Microsoft Rewards-do searches on mobile and computer to earn a possible 28 points. Once you reach gold level(less than a month of being active) gift cards are discounted down to 475 points, which means you can redeem them for a $5 gift card. I recommend you check out my guide for earning through changing your search engine.

4. Perk -you can run videos overnight on a phone overnight. There are a couple of additional apps including some games that you can download to make more points. Possible to make as much as .40 per phone per day at best up to 5 phones per account(multiple accounts per household allowed) just from watching videos. $2.50 possible per day. $12.50 possible per week. Gift cards available through amazon and others starting at $1.00. Can redeem for paypal. They also have a quiz, word search and other apps.

5. Ibotta -scan in your receipts and redeem cash back on grocery and other purchases. Sign up with to get a sign up bonus! You can redeem through paypal or gift cards.

6. App Trailers -watch videos and make points. 10 points= $.01. Lowest cashout is 100 points. Pretty straight forward, you can link this to your perk account and cashout easier. Max devices for this app is 5.


7. Inboxdollars -watch videos, search and do surveys to earn points. Payout is by check or prepaid card. It's a steady amount with watching and has a desktop version as well. Easy to make .50 a day on here.

Swag Slopes Team Challenge Tips and Tricks!

Another Team Challenge is here! For those of you who are not familiar with team challenges, these fun events give you an opportunity to gain points as a team to win a prize, normally a Swag Up (a rebate on your next gift card). Points are not the same as swagbucks. If you are new to Swagbucks I recommend you check out my guide to earning 80+ a month with Swagbucks. 


From the Swag Slopes Team Challenge Page:

It's ski season and we have just the trip for you, it's the Swag Slopes Team Challenge! Don't worry about ski rentals, lessons, or the dreaded lift fees, your trip comes compliments of Swagbucks. Too cold, the SB will surely keep you warm.

All members who participate and contribute at least 400 points to their team’s total will receive a SB bonus in the form of a SB Swag Up Rebate! Members of the 1st place team will receive a 50 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 2nd place team will receive a 25 SB Swag Up Rebate, and members of the 3rd place team will receive a 10 SB Swag Up Rebate. Your SB Swag Up Rebate will be made available on Friday, January 27th and will expire on Sunday, February 12th at 11:59pm PT. For more information, click here.



Doing small offers on discover will be the fastest way to earn points. RadiumOne, PeanutLabs and other walls have dozens of 1 sb offers, and each of these will be worth 20 points for the team challenge. Mobile discover offers are worth 10 points each. Check out some of these too some of them have great payouts for not a ton of work. 

One option is  to check the sponsored videos section and there are multiple options, I start by clicking on the guy with a laptop. Normally this takes about 10 separate clicks but only takes about two minutes and can be done while doing other things. It's worth 2 sb each time you complete it and can sometimes be done 15+ times a day. If you see a girl in a tank top, always click on it, it'll be about 30 seconds, you must interact with the ad in some way, and it credits 2 sb each time. The others I do less often because they take more time and sometimes have issues crediting. 

One offer that can really help is the EngageMe.TV from AdscendMedia. Keep playing it, but you have to keep it in the tab you are on to have the videos play. Each time it credits it gives you a credit in discover. 
Do some watch when you get a chance playing it in the background. Check out my instructions for doing this the quickest way to make the most through watch on the computer. This includes watch, Toolbar Tv  NCrave is  being counted as watch this time around, and is also excellent for general earning.  The 1 sb ones will be the quickest way to get points.

To get started on watch, look for the smallest playlists (6 videos or shorter). There is a good one under food that is 5 videos that is about pumpkins, it says 6, but it's really 5.

Some people will tell you differently, but buying swagstakes is not worth it most of the time. The payout is guaranteed to leave some people losers, and you would be better off just saving your sbs for your next gift card. If you really want to though, it is worth points to your team, and if you don't think you can make it to 400 for the challenge, this could be a way to do it quickly.

If you want to boost your search wins I recommend following my instructions here to maximize your earnings there. For general earning check out my Advanced Guide to Swagbucks.

Visit any store from our Holiday Deals page and you'll contribute 10 points to your team! This is an excellent way to max out your points in a day. 

I encourage you to check the Swagbucks subreddit or the Swaggernaut Facebook group for more helpful hints! As always, feel free to check out the rest of my blog and all of the tips and tricks for earning money online!

A couple of other tips and nice paying offers that you'll see out there: Sign up for Shell rewards for 300 SB. When trying lifescript offers make sure to clear your cookies before trying, and work through them quickly. You can get a lot of them done if you do that. Still less than half of them will credit.

Three new offers for DailyBreak through Revenue Universe worth a total of 45 SB.

There is an offer called 60 second insurance life - 120 sb From the Home screen go to discover  then to super rewards and click on 60 second life insurance. I recommend either incognito mode or clearing cookies.

On the front page under discover special offers and earn there is an offer titled "Get paid to be healthy!" for 35 SB. Sign up, you don't have to download an app, and you will be credited. 

There is also an offer for 2,000 SB for signing up for Hulu. You cannot cancel it until at least 10 days have passed or else you will lose your Swagbucks. You can find this by searching for Hulu in the search bar on the main screen. 

Check your your email from the 23rd. There is a Schwan's offer for 2000 sb for ordering $35. On top of that you get $30 off your first order.


Good luck!
