The Bottom Line

I did this the last time Swagbucks offered this promotion and the points posted to my account as advertised (a couple of days after the Home Chef meal box arrived). As soon as they points showed up, I redeemed them for cash via PayPal.

Home Chef itself is actually decent. My wife and I chose the Salmon and Raspberry Ginger Sauce and Chipotle-Spiced Pork Tinga Stuffed Peppers with our first order and both were delicious. We were impressed enough that we ordered several more meals.
