    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.

    Blimey, the one thing Swagbucks seems to be getting more generous with - they've gone from capping DQs at 5sb to chucking the SBs out left right and centre!

    Sort of, yes. I was away for a week, at the beginning of which my goal was down to 50 a day. When I logged on after coming back, it was 70, and its gone up 10 points a day since, in spite of me only meeting the 2nd goal once ... very odd.

    The whole of last month my first target started at 30 and didn't go above 50 as I'd hardly been doing anything on SB for months. First month in about 18 that I got the monthly bonus, haha. It's up to 106 today though...

    2nd goal makes no difference to the first - as long as you are meeting the first goal often enough the target may vary a bit each day but is the same amount for everyone who is on the "standard" rate (swagbucks tries to encourage those who are not meeting the first goal by lowering it bit by bit and it starts off low in the first place as well) - 2nd goal varies tremendously depending on what you are achieving.

    Let me answer almost all the survey, THEN DQ me. Classy.

    Hi mjm, thanks for this, but other than that one day when I met the 2nd goal, I didn't meet any of the first goals either - I'm getting to the stage where I'm liable to laugh at the weird things SB does, they seem remarkably chaotic to me
