    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've found them to be temperamental - I'm assuming you've not got an ad blocker running on those pages? Occasionally refreshing the page until an ad plays works. Also, I'm not sure if with these pages you need to have the tab open and on top or not, but it seems like if you have it running in its own window that can do the trick.

    Might be worth a try, as for me it's been running in the background crediting SB all evening.

    Finally got it to credit! It is temperamental as you said, took lots of vids before I got to 6 ads, but it worked!


    Thanks again for your help!!

    Anyone ever had a frown face graphic followed by the text :

    We're sorry. It seems that answering
    surveys is not for you.
    Unfortunately your personal information is not consistent. We are
    thus unable to complete your survey profile.

    I'm guessing I've been found out taking survey shortcuts and inputting nonsense in a rare moment of lethargy.

    I'm guessing this is a soft ban. Not getting any response from SB so far. Not sure what to do next?

It was frustating because whilst I was banned there was a swago board which I could only earn 5 points becuase of the survey ban! They said if I was banned again it would be permanent

    Also I don't answer any of the questions in the survey profile just in case

    So for the first time EVER my Wool And The Gang order through Shop & Earn tracked! *faints with disbelief*

    I've done about a dozen orders with them through SB in the past and not a single one had ever tracked - they even stopped crediting my tickets as I had to claim every time But hey ho, that's over 1000SB ready to credit next month
