I have never ever used my main email for offers or surveys,so the only answer is that SBs allowed 3rd parties access to it.Shame on them.
I'm having a similar problem. I used my "real" e-mail address to join, although I use my other one for spammy offers but I STILL get a lot of junk emaill mainly from finance/loan companies and I have never had that problem in the past despite having had that email address for about 6 years.

we are aware of the issue of non crediting offers and are trying to resolve it as best as poss. we are also making progress on surveys and the issue of qualifying questions at the end. so progress is being made....

hi mm23 yes i comment on here every now and again if that is ok with you all in general; if it isn't i won't, but re the wonga survey can you dm me on FB with full details on that because that survey has been credited for most people...

re surveys generally, there should not be a problem with them not crediting. CINT emails ones are done manually within a couple of days. daily and trusted should credit if you complete - we always thought a far bigger problem was users being screened out at the end of surveys, so annoying and something we are trying so hard to resolve. re non crediting - if you keep proof of confirmation and send to support you should really get credited. of course i realise there may be the odd exception. its the actual survey company that credit you, you see, so if they say they have no record it is difficult...

Today has been a good day for me so far. 70SB for daily survey and 125SB for TS on beers and social media

That gets me 9 days in a row, I'll be happy with 14 then probably lose it

Can I ask please as I have tried looking under T&C unless am missing something.
I have my account up my house and when I visit my brothers house Zi go on it there. But I got him interested in Swagbucks and he signed up at his house, so is it best to use Swagbucks in my own house only.

I believe Swagbucks allows multiple accounts from the same IP, as long as it is different people. So I don't think you will be in violation of the T&Cs by accessing your account when you are at your brother's house. But there might be a problem with the offers, tasks, videos, etc. crediting for both of you, as they often only allow you to complete them once per IP address.

The Swagbucks rep has said he's not going to post on here anymore, so the best place to ask might be the Swagbucks UK Facebook page.

Screwed again

Not only do the USA get a new version of the Swagbucks SBTV Mobile App (worth 50 bucks a day), they also get a brand spanking new EntertaiNow app (worth 52 bucks a day) so they can earn more bucks easily

Also, they have the Radio offer back

I've asked Nick on Facebook if we can use the EnterntaiNow app in the UK and if not if we will be getting something similar. I'm not holding my breath that we'll be allowed to use it though

Yes, I didn't think it would be, Cally. I can't for the life of me see what's so difficult in providing us with these apps unless it's because Swagbucks can't get advertisers to spend any more money with them, but I doubt that's the case
