    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.

    I suspect it is users like you that they want to stop. They're not really making any money from you if you're only using the apps (except when they have ads on the videos, which is rare on my apps). They're making more from people who do the surveys and the offers.
    (I'm not saying that they pay well for these either!)

    Yep time to move on for me as well. A few years ago gold surveys were all 70sb and peanuts labs surveys were all 60. One of those, a search 10 from the games and daily poll and I was hitting target quickly. These days is a slog v low paying surveys daily goals of 100 and so many non crediting surveys so not worth it now. Ill dip in and out but on the look out for the next site.

    Hi,
    I was so sad over the weekend when so many posters were saying they were leaving, it felt like I was losing old friends.
    Ever the optimist, I'm going to give it a little while and see whether it returns to 'normal'. If not I'll have to stop as well, it's so frustrating trying to reach the same goal when Swagbucks have moved the goal posts. It will also be too difficult without the constant help and support of the people on this forum.

    For those also battling along for a while longer:-

    There seems to be Collectors Bills this week and I had 5sb for searching on the name of the Team Challenge.

    Thank you and goodbye
    I'm saying goodbye to Swagbucks for good, I can no longer make my goals, especially since the apps now only credit 4sb each, Watch needs constantly babysitting and other rewards have gradually dwindled. Half the time shop and earn doesn't credit and I rarely get a survey (or get screened out 85%) and get no help from SB support. I find I'm wasting so much time for my "free" pennies and it's become too stressful trying to achieve goals. It's sad as SB used to be such a great site and meant I could occasionally afford a luxury or two from Amazon, or a few month's worth of loo roll etc!

    Though I've only posted on this forum a few times, I have lurked a lot over the last couple of years! I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone for the valuable help and information you have shared, you're all amazing

    I'm going to carry on with the basics apps etc and will just see getting a survey or hitting the first goal as a bonus, and spend time on other sites and more free time for gaming etc.
    The past few months I've been doing more surveys on Instagc and running videos instead of just doing the codes.

    I got 57 SB yesterday and 60 today which is under half what I was averaging but the time spent to get it was proportionally far less with no looking for discovers, surveys, ncraves etc. In some of that spare time I entered a few competitions yesterday and today got an e-mail with a code for a 25 Amazon voucher (total luck but that effectively covers the difference between the app payments for 90 days).

    Even if they restored the apps to 70 SB a day I am not sure it is worth bothering to try and get much more than that as it seems that getting the extra bucks on top is where most of the time/effort goes.
