UPDATE: It seems like this is one per Visa card, and you might possibly be able to get the bonus on multiple Visa cards. If you took advantage of this promotion prior to Monday December 15 and did not get the bonus, email Swagbucks customer service and they will take care of you.
The online shopping portal Swagbucks is offering a pretty nice opportunity to shop at Peet’s Coffee with a Visa credit card and make some money! All you have to do is spend $1 at this coffee shop and you’ll earn 500 “Swag Bucks”. And you can do this up to 5 times! So ultimately you can earn 2,500 “Swag Bucks” which can be redeemed for a $25 Pay Pal gift card. This is essentially like cash as you can withdraw Pay Pal money directly to a linked bank account. Or, if you do not want to worry about Pay Pal, you can always redeem for store gift cards such as Amazon.com, Walmart, Kohl’s, Starbucks, etc. (there are many gift card options!). This is valid for purchases through December 27, 2014.
While spending $4 to get $25 is a nice return, I am not quite sure if there is anything at Peet’s Coffee only costing $1. Possibly a bottle of water, but not sure the exact cost. But you might be able to purchase a $5 item and have them split the transaction 5 times. There isn’t a Peet’s Coffee near me so I am not able to test it out myself just yet. Peet’s Coffee can only be found in the following states: California, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia,Washington, Washington D.C. and Wisconsin. You can see an entire list of store locations here.
Steps to take advantage of this promotion:
- Sign into your Swagbucks account. If you are not yet a Swagbucks member, you can register here.
- Register for the promotion on the Peet’s offer page. If your account is located in a state that does not have a Peet’s Coffee you will be redirected to another non-significant offer.
- You will need to enter your Visa credit card number and email address.
- Go to Peet’s Coffee store and spend at least one dollar using the Visa credit card that you just registered.
- Your account will then be credited with 500 Swag Bucks per transaction (up to 5 transactions).
As I mentioned above, you can take advantage of this offer 5 times, but I am not sure if this is 5 times per registered credit card or 5 times per Swagbucks account. I emailed my contacts over at Swagbucks to ask them more about this, but since it is the weekend I am assuming I will not hear back until Monday. I was able to register multiple Visa credit cards and received a confirmation email for each card.
I’ve written about Swagbucks before in the past as an online shopping portal, but I am glad to see they are branching out and offering promotions similar to Amex Offers but with a Visa card. It is definitely a great concept and I hope it branches off to more offers. I’ve always had positive experiences with Swagbucks with points posting quickly and gift card redemptions take a little less than a week to receive.
