HelloFresh Free Box Offer

Swagbucks is offering 4,000 SB points (worth $40 cash back) once you subscribe to HelloFresh and stay subscribed for at least 10 days. You also get $40 off your first order.

The strategy here is to pay for your first week’s delivery only (the first 7 days). While you have to stay subscribe for at least 10 days, you can “skip” your second week’s order. You’re allowed to skip any week for any reason, and you’ll still be considered subscribed.

Once you receive your 4,000 SB points, you can cancel your HelloFresh subscription. The lowest priced order is 4 meals that costs $18.95 after shipping fees and all discounts are applied, netting you a profit of $21.05 while getting four meals for free!

Here’s the math breakdown:

HelloFresh – 4 Meals (2 meals x 2 person x $8.99 per meal)-$49.96
Shipping Fee-$8.99
$40 Discount (discount off 1st order)+$40.00
$40 Cash Back (4,000 SB points)+$40.00
Total Profit$21.05

Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

HelloFresh 4,000 SB Points Terms & Conditions

  • SB will appear as Pending for 32 days.
  • This offer is only available to new HelloFresh customers/subscribers.

  • Layering other promo codes may prevent you from earning SB.

The Bottom Line

Make sure you take a picture of your 1st box when it arrives along with the shipping label on it. You’ll need to submit this as proof if you don’t receive the SB points that you’re suppose to.

I did this last year and the points posted automatically to my account as advertised (SB points showed as pending a couple of days after my first HelloFresh box arrived). Since the offer requires you to keep the subscription for at least 10 days, I just went into my Hello Fresh account and skipped the next week’s order.

All these deals Swagbucks is offering on home meal delivery services are awesome. It’s a nice way to try them for free and make money at the same time.
