    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.

    For the second night in a row my apps haven't reset at 2am. I quite like getting a new lot of points early in the morning or when insomnia strikes and they are normally and free at that time,.so I'm feeling deprived!!

    They reset ok for me yesterday, but not today. The moviecli one forced me to try and update the app, but my phone seems too old to support it, so i'll have to get myself another phone.

    They also appear to have reduced the rewards for searching as i just got a measly 3 SB for my first search win of the day - the previous low was 4 SB.

    I don't think I've ever seen a search win as low as 3SB before today. Is this the new norm? More skimming from SB.

    Tried Sportly and Movieclips this morning... both running those horrendous apps, but they're not counting down! So apps so far unusable. I have my FG anyway but it would be nice to leave running while I'm weekend pottering.

    Thanks for participating in this study about laundry products. Due to a technical issue over the Christmas period, there has been a short delay with getting incentive emails sent out. This is in the process of being fixed, and you will receive your emails in the coming days, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this, we are working our hardest to resolve the issue.

    Thanks again, and have a great 2018!

    So I also just had a 3 SB search "win", must be a new thing because in all the time I've been using Swagbucks I've never seen less than 4 SB for a search before:

    3 for me too, this is a new low for SB

    On a more positive note the apps are working for me at the moment and are add free

    Would anyone care to bet on how long it will last?

    ETA my referrals are also on Android, a newer Pixie and a Vodafone Mini and they're also ok.

    All of us have only had this from this morning though. Not expecting it to last
