Swagbucks - anyone have a problem getting their special offers swagbucks??

I LOVE Swagbucks and am almost at my $25 Disney Giftcard!! To get there, I did one of the special offers that paid 630 SB.

(If anyone wants a referral link to swagbucks, I am always happy to share - PM me)

So, I did the special offer and it has been shipped. But, I did not get my Swagbucks. I filled out a ticket and had to send them a copy of my receipt and they were looking into it.

That was a week ago.

I have heard nothing since.

I have been using them for about 2 years and gotten tons of giftcards and have never had a problem at all, so I am hoping this is a glitch.

Has anyone had a problem with thier special offers in the past??

Do you visit the SB facebook page? I don't do any special offers, but I see people complaining on FB about how their offers don't credit, and contacting support or whomever doesn't ever solve anything.

Despite this, I'd also recommend Swag Bucks - I've earned 35 dollars in Amazon gift cards since I started in April, and I didn't work hard at it at all during the summer. All I do is search, get my daily 1 SBs for toolbar, trusted surveys, NOSO, and daily poll, and watch the facebook page for code alerts. I don't have any referrals but can earn 10 dollars a month in Amazon gift cards with minimal effort.

First, the shop and earns take up to 32 days to credit. Has it been that long?

Second~ do you realize that the Disney gift card is an online E-gift card? Just making sure so you don't think it can be used for souvenirs in the parks.

I love Swagbucks. I do searches all the time for ChaCha so I am racking up the bucks. I have earned 224 so far this month!

Can you use the E-gift card to preorder the photopass?

No. Disney Photopass is not the same thing as Disney.com. I was going to get some Disney GC too until someone told me about it. Now I just get Amazon GC and plan to use them for Christmas and birthdays. Then that money will go into my Disney fund.

It was not a shop & earn, it was a special offer and it says "within minutes".

Yes, I have used the Disney Gift cards in the past. Amazon is your best SB/$ (90SB/$1), but Disney is not far off (118SB/$1). Some of them are really out there and are over 130SB/$1!!

We are stock piling for the southwest airline gc.

Not that I am certian we will use SW but if I go with Alaska airlines I will have a nice chunk of swagbucks for something else so no big deal.

I just started about three weeks ago. I grabbed two $5 amazon.com gift cards last month. I am halfway to another one. I figure with DDs birthday in December and Christmas, it can't hurt to have extra money. Free money at that since I would be searching anyway. I know you can only cash our for each item 5 times a month but that is $25/month.

Yes, I have had multiple SO not credit. I did one in March for one of the credit bureau checking services (don't remember which one now.) I was supposed to be credited 1080 SBs. I paid for a month's service, but never received credit. I emailed Offer Pal repeatedly (at least once a week for 2 months.) I emailed Swagbucks directly at least 5 times. No one ever responded to any of my emails or credited me in any way shape or form, so good luck. I finally gave up.
