For any of you who have followed my blog for a while, or even just had a read through my favourites section, you will know that Swagbucks has been one of my favourites from the first time i used it. It now saddens me somewhat to have to write this post, but you guys need to know the good and the bad!
It was a couple of weeks ago that i suddenly had a problem logging into my account and got a message saying my account had been deactivated. To say i was gutted is an understatement.
So what happened? Well after several emails back and forth it seems that although the terms of holding a swagbucks account does allow for several accounts to be held at the same address, to do so comes with some risks attached.
As i had raved about this site so much i had managed to convince both my other half and my sister to register (as well as other family members i might add) but the 3 of us were all sharing the one house and computer. The result: all 3 accounts got deactivated!
Just for clarification on this point, the terms do say that your account can be deactivated for holding multiple accounts, or sharing accounts, however different people at the one address can hold an account within the terms.
Not being one to sit back and just lose the account i did contact them and after several emails back and forth i have managed to get my own account back, along with the Amazon voucher codes i had foolishly left sitting in the account. I am really happy to get my account back and i can honestly say i do understand why the accounts got deactivated in the first place - i'm sure it did look suspicious the 3 of us logging in and out of our accounts on the one computer - i have been left with a bit of a wary attitude now though, as i could very easily not have got the account reactivated and lost so much in the process.
So word of warning guys n gals DO NOT leave your vouchers sitting in any account you earn from online - i thought swagbucks was a 'safe' account and i got burned....or at the very least i got a warning from it and was VERY VERY lucky to get it back!
Happy Saturday y'all
