Dashing through the Dough Team Challenge

Another Team Challenge is just around the corner! 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). 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:

Dashing through the dough, on your desktop fully charged, over the net we go, earning all the way; SB credit ring, making smiles bright, what it is to earn SB a rewarding song tonight! Team Challenge, team challenge, team challenge starts Monday! O what fun it is to earn in the Dashing Through The Dough Team Challenge. 

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 30 SB Swag Up Rebate, members of the 3rd place team will receivea 20 SB Swag Up Rebate, and members of the 4th place team will receive a 10 SB Swag Up Rebate.

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 25 points. 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 seperate clicks but only takes a minute or two and can be done while doing other things. It's worth 2 sb each time you complete it and can often 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 doing the 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.
Good luck!
