    Did you sign up to the 'Swagbucks double points for ALL users' deal?

    Swagbucks has admitted failing to upload credits to about 2,000 users who took part in the 'double points for ALL users deal' featured on MSE in April and republished in full below. However, it has now pledged to credit all affected users after we stepped in to help users out.

    It told us on Fri 29 Jun: "The original upload of credits for the MSE offer on Swagbucks was missing members and we have now identified all of the missing IDs. All remaining credits will therefore be uploaded by Sun 1 Jul. We apologise for the inconvenience."

    Read more on our Swagbucks Deals page.

    Welcome to the new thread.

    Newbies: please see the detailed information in this thread which explains how Swagbucks works and how you can make the best from it.

    Do people usually go for amazon voucher redemption of swagbacks?

    Suddenly mid-play these have all gone and no playlists for me. Given that's the bulk of my daily total (circa 60SB) its a big loss.


    Just me?

    Yes, that is exactly what I get.
    Presumably 'banned' because they felt like it, rather than having a justified reason....?
    If this breaks my streak I will probably wait for the 6100 SB for the 20 investment and quit. I'm not feeling the need to put in effort for pennies an hour. There are people scavenging rubbish in 3rd world countries making a better return.
    No debt. Like all Brits I just love free stuff.

    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie and I recently redeemed my first batch of SB for a Starbucks gift card. I got the email, but when I click on the link and enter my password, nothing happens. It just sits. I've tried on Firefox and Chrome. I have raised a support query but so far all they've said is " If you’re having trouble requesting your link to your gift card, please check your spam folder and add info@swagbucks.com to your safe senders list." Which completely ignored my actual query. Don't you love it when these support centres trot out standard scripted answers without even reading what your actual issue is? Anyway.... has anyone else ever had this issue and managed to solve it? Thanks.

The Customer Support responses to new tickets are usually automated, and if you don't reply to them they are never seen by a human. Try replying to that e-mail (politely! I know it gets frustrating, but those are human beings too on the other end) and see if you can get a human reply.

    Actually, I didn't get an email response.... I decided today to log onto the help system to check when I'd sent the query, and discovered the standard response. I have subsequently replied to that standard response.

    Toolbar TV disappeared mid-play for me earlier. The Swagbucks TV app also stopped working, saying sorry no videos available at the moment, with a refresh button by the message. I've moved on to the SBTV app and that had the same sort of thing but my favourite (really short video) worked fine. That's finished and have now got the same with MovieClips - no actual videos but a favourited video does work and runs through. Hope that helps someone. I assume they're going to update the apps again/switching to a different video supplier.
