I love the Team Callenges. They're no extra work unless you want to make them extra work, and everyone regularly participating on Swagbucks ultimately gets a bonus. Win-win for everyone! I like them much more than the Collector's Bill "challenges" (I like the bills themselves, but have never gotten a complete set in my years here), and MUCH more than the things you used to do more often with the goals, before you set the daily goal meter. The daily goal meter now offers than for users any time, so that's great for people who want to do that. I enjoy the Team Challenges just to check in and see how my team is doing, do my daily Swagbucks activities, and collect whatever bonus at the end. Low-pressure, easy, and enjoyable. I ticked twice a month because they're great!

I personally think people complain to much. There are inconsistencies and unfairness in surveys and mobile applications I agree but no one is twisting your arm and forcing you to use Swagbucks. I for one have been greatful for the earning opportunities afford me and I really like the Team Challenges. I would not mind seeing two a month maybe every two weeks. They could do one with the higher bonuses for earning over 400 for the team and one where all you have to do is contribute 1 pt to your team to earn the smaller bonus. I have learned so much from my fellow team mates. I have been on winning and losing teams and still the team spirit has been fun and profitable for me! The only think I would change if we have them more often is having them pinned above the daily goals as soon as the team challenge starts so we don't forget and lose any potential points for the team.

every three months or so. I think a different bonus for different activity levels plus the team bonus.

Never! The challenges seem like a good idea, but not so when they raise the daily goals from their normal amount, making them harder to reach. Unless you are online all day, you wont get the extra codes and unless you are American, don't even bother to try and get on the leader board. All most people will get is a extra 5-25 points depending on where their team places and all that extra work over a week for a small amount of points is really not worth it.

Your daily goal is based on the average number of points that you earned within some recent time period. It goes back down. I got disgusted with the challenge prior to this one when my daily goals skyrocketed, but they are back down low again based on my usual earnings.

quarterly. Having them too often takes the fun out of them and people are already to dang competitive in life. Swagbucks is supposed to be fun.

I voted for every other month, but once a month would work for me too. I do like the team challenges as they are very fun. But, this last challenge, the clash of the careers or whatever, I did not really participate much in because the Encraves and Jun Videos did not qualify. I don't have a mobile phone or kindle fire or anything like that so this challenge almost made it impossible for me to earn for my team. But they are fun and I like the little chat boards and learning new tips and tricks.

UK, you have much better TV and radio than we do, have the incredible history of Britain and surrounding areas to call your own, have at least half of the best music acts of all time (considering your size, a major display of cultural/artistic prowess), and cornered the market on literary detectives (though we did have Poe). I wouldn't worry about the pennies from Swagbucks. Also, the "earning opportunities" without strings (and even those with them!) rarely work. It seems to me that the people earning thousands must be either cheating somehow or get all their points through referrals. There's just no way otherwise. If you stay glued to your computer, possibly hundreds. If you have several computers and devices, maybe a thousand. More than that on a routine basis, it's referrals or something hinky. I am in the US and earn about 3-10 SB a day.

I hate to say it, but I see so much sour grapes from UK, maybe they should just discontinue swagbucks there altogether since it seems to just make everyone unhappy.

Swagbucks should give you the chance to pick your team. Then, decide who wins not by point total, but by an average of the players score. That way, the team that has the most participation of it's team members, not just the high point players, will be the winning team.

I love the team challenges, they are a fun way to earn more, however I think that each one lasts for too long. If we could have them a couple times a months for only a few days each challenge, that could keep it fresher. nothing like being on a losing team for a whole week, lol

Makes no difference to me. I always join a team when you have the competition, but EVERY SINGLE time I have been on the team that comes in dead last. Not sure how that happens, but it does. I can't say I have earned any extra swagbucks participating in a competition.

I agree with PurrfectFriend and SReo I don't even come on SB that much anymore because when I do I hardly earn anything especially when I join the team challenges you do the stuff and alot of the time you don't get qualified (even though profiles are up to date) and as far as the 1,000 SB I can't even win those points. SB used to be fun but not anymore

If you spent time on your teams message board you would learn how to make more SB for efficiently all the time. I spend way more time on this than I used to now that it's paying off for me.

First, what is the point? I have seen them, but I have never understood why they are there. Does the winning team earn more swagbucks? Did I miss the announcement about challenges?

Yes it gives you an opportunity for extra points - but there is also a team message board just like this one - only because we are all on the same team, working towards a common goal, there is a lot of coaching and mentoring and exchanging of tips and tricks there. I have learned a LOT LOT LOT from the team challenges. That enables me to make more swagbucks outside of the challenges too. The small bonus I get from the challenge is nothing compared to the free swagbucking education I got for free from the challenge.

A couple times a year is good. Lately it seems like there's one every week, and frankly, I'm over it. Let it rest for a little bit.

Some of us have been with SwagBucks for years and know how easy it is to get burnt out on special offers and grinding the SBs. Once in a while having an event to inspire us to do more is great! But it's no longer special- it's exhausting, when you have them so often.

I enjoy them and learn a lot from other team members. However, it can take up a lot of time to really help the team. Every other month is okay but maybe every 3-4 months would be better. It would also be nice to have more opportunities to earn points that don't need mobile devices. It seems people who don't have mobile devices have little to no chance of getting on the leader board.

The Team challenge does not give enough swag bucks for me to participate. I think its 100 points for the winning team. I would like to see different choices perhaps not only sports themes. If sports has to be the only choice, how about make it like a video game the sports that are in the olympics, like Ice Skating, Bob Sleding. As far as other choices go instead of sports, how about a Bible Challenge? With questions that have to do with Bible questions.

It doesn't matter to me, because I don't have the time to spend hours trying to earn points for my team for a bonus of 25 cents, when I usually end up with the 10 cent bonus. So do them whenever you would like, it doesn't change the way I earn.
MizzMoneypenny2u

For me, it's not the 10 or 25 bonus bucks we win - it's about the team message board. I have learned so much from team members mentoring each other - it has definitely changed the way I earn - I earn a lot more in a lot less time now than I used to. You might be surprised at what you would learn by participating in the challenges. I don't even care if we win or not - my pencil is sharper now either way!

You people who answered What's a team challenge are really missing out on some awesome opportunities - not just to earn more swagbucks, but to commune and learn from your fellow participants. Win, lose, or draw, it's been a great experience just getting the coaching you get from fellow team members - I've learned a LOT!

Definitely. I know when I was just starting out, the only way I could figure out to earn SBs (without spending any money) was to watch the videos, which took forever. But thanks to all the tips from the comments section, I've learned way more ways (seriously, the mobile apps are so easy and useful).

I don't mind if we have more team challenges as long as we continue having the challenges that give the bigger bonuses. Bonus levels would be great (the more you contribute, the higher your bonus). If you contribute from 400 points to your team you get the 100 swagbucks (for 1st place) and then extra bonuses for each 100 over (i.e. 500 gets 110, 600 gets 120, etc. Maybe an extra bonus at 1000).

Also - I hope that someone reads our comments other than us. I know I've answered all of the survey questions/then been disqualified (i.e. the meter says 96% complete & I'm disqualified for an invalid reason. There is no recourse for questioning those. Finally, the approximate survey completion times need to be more accurate. I've taken a surveys that I thought I had time to complete (before work) and find they take twice as long as promised. A 40 minute survey should earn me what 40 minutes of swagging would earn me on Encrave or videos (40 min for 30 swagbucks

I know the survey thing happened to me on like 90 % of the time. I stopped doing the surveys because of it. I complained to swagbucks and they basically said there was nothing they could do about it. So, I don't do them anymore. A shame as when they did work used to be my biggest earner, but not worth the time when you answer everything and then they tell you disqualified...it's like they get what they want and tell you you're disqualified so they are not out anything.

Yes, I have quit surveys too. I feel taken advantage of when they have harvested all of my info then dump me after the 90% complete mark. That's a load. You should get say, 40 points if you qualify and 10 if you fill it out and don't qualify. Even though the 10 is inadequate for 90% completion - it's still something. As of now, there's nothing, so I don't waste my time anymore.

Infrequently, at least until SB learns how to do instant payouts like most other sites I click. If not instant, at least quickly and on a specific schedule. We are (mostly) adults here earning (not "winning") money, and it would be nice if we were taken seriously. Games are great, but I would prefer fewer games and more predictability with regards to payments. jmnsho

You don't have to participate, but if you just remember to click that one little button to sign up, and then just Swag as much (or as little) as you usually do, chances are you'll receive some time of bonus for it. You just need to contribute 1 point to qualify.

I enjoy them, but ONLY those challenges where you earn a bigger bonus (100 for 1st place team, for example) when you contribute at least 400 swagbucks. Otherwise, I don't care... I just make sure I contribute at least 1 point, but I am not motivated to make extra effort to be in 1st place to win 25 SBs instead of 15 or 20... It's not worth extra effort for just 5 more swagbucks.

Once a month is fine. Not so much attention on mobile apps. Some swaggers say they can run videos automatically without them paying any attention, so what's the point? That's just it. They get points for doing basically nothing but having an iphone or other compatible device running all the time.

Quarterly... And advertise it more than the banner on the homepage. I don't how many challenge teams I have "joined" late because I wasn't aware that there was a challenge in progress, and of course that was after I'd already completed a survey, watched several videos, etc!

Every other month is okay. These last three have been too close together. It took most of the fun out of it for me.
