    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 gave up with them for a while but got an email from them a few months back. It's been paying out quite nicely recently. And they lowered the cashout threshold the day after I was thinking about cashing out. But luckily for me I left it and got my money for less points . Another good one these days is Branded Surveys which used to be mintvine.

    I do like Branded Surveys though and do well on there

    They want to pay us less and force us to do surveys with them to try and keep our streaks. When Swagbucks pay less than most survey portal sites and significantly less than doing surveys directly with the survey companies. All of which means more profits for Swagbucks, which is fundamentally all they care about.

    Whilst I will still use swagbucks as it has become a habit in my life after doing it so long,,,,,I wont be spending so much time on the site,

    Surveys drive me mad, especially on swagbucks. Even just getting 1 gold one to work for the swago is nigh on impossible.

    I have slowly been doing more and more on instagc lately and spend more time there. Looks like it will be getting even more of my time. Could just do with another site to run alongside that doesnt rely heavily on surveys.

    Is something going on with the Gold Surveys today? Hardly any of them seem to credit.
    I have had 2 x 100 SB surveys and 3 x 70 SB surveys all not credit.
    I have sent in FIVE support tickets in total for them today, so that will probably trigger a support ban.

    Good morning people.

    As they seem to be going to limit the app earnings to the available ads, I would point out that it's best to run the apps early in the day before the ad allocation has been used up.

    It still would almost never make up for the reduction and consequent lack of streaks.

    Just checked as I hadn't been paying attention, but the Swagbucks app completed and gave me 10sb, started at 8am. Most things run out early, be it morning surveys or discover or ncrave.

    Edit: SBTV, started at 9.20, over by 9.27 with 4sb.

    It seems fixed in what they give. The main SB app gives 10, Movieclips 8, Entertain Now 2, SBTV 4 etc.

    One of the peanut labs 29 sb for 10 Mins took me through to a Populus Live survey - they are a site I use and they pay 1 per 5 mins so 10 Mins would pay the equivalent of 320 SB (paypal)

    good article, seems to explain it , we aren't allowed to use VPN's to access swagbucks as it hides our location I believe.

    I thought yesterday one video on toolbar TV only moved the counter 2% so looked properly today and there are 5 that move it 2% the rest are 3% so from the original 10 videos for 3 SB they have in stages now moved out to 105 videos for 3 SB (paid at 35 for 1)

    I think they're still fiddling.
    Entertainow and sbtv both capped out at 4sb for me this morning.
    I'm not running any now until later to see what else they decide to do during the course of today.
