Every Survey I Don't Qualify 1/5
By Get in now!
This is very stupid, every survey I take it says I'm not qualified, even after spending 10-15 minutes on it. How about for the people who run this app you give people surveys they can fill out, or are you to caught up in making your own money you forget about the customers who are making your money.
Cant link Facebook 1/5
Can’t even login in, on the website I signed up through Facebook and there’s no option for that here, the credentials don’t aren’t the same so I can’t log in.
Rarely Works and Bad Customer Service 1/5
By DavidNguyen 0005
I have used both this App and Swagbutton extension for Chrome to buy stuff online like 4 times last 3 months. The only time it worked was when I got 39 cents cash back. Then I proceeded to make 3 purchases with total of $1200 and hoped to get good cash back (2%-6%) on on those. Since then I have been waiting 60 days to receive SB credits for them, nothing shows up. This is the 4th attempt I’ve tried to reach their customer service for 1 order, but no agent ever responded to problem. So don’t get your hope up to high or you will feel frustrated and being tricked by them.
It's ok but don't expect to quit your Job. 4/5
It's nice to make a bit more extra change, but even if you get lucky and really crunch, you're only making around $1-2/hr (100-200sb) doing surveys.
I can however verify this service is legit. I cashed out 300sb for a $3 Amazon card and got it within 2 days via email. It took me around 3-4 days initially to get this, surveys only.
However, some things need to change in this app: I notice the iPhone x "ears" bug on my 6+ (the icons are almost off screen), the app will not rotate even of your iPhone says you can (this makes some surveys impossible) and sometimes you cannot bail from surveys that finished or no longer want to do without force restarting the app, the latter happening at least 2-3 times per hour, it gets very annoying. Maybe make a browsing icon next to < > and refresh to take you back to the list of surveys or by tapping the bottom middle tab again it will?
I hope the input is valuable, and before you say, yes I know it's up to the surveys to be mobile compatable, but couldn't you allow your app to go horizontal? I would think that would solve that issue for all parties involved. I do prefer mobile friendly, but please consider this as a backup plan in case they are not mobile friendly.
Not good points 1/5
Needs more points
I downloaded and couldn’t sign in. I tried to reset password but that didn’t work. Ultimately I don’t have the time to waste trying to get this app to work.
It won’t allow me to complete any surveys so I can only earn 1-2 SB at a time. Not worth it!!!!!
The removal of the watch section renders the app useless. You used to be able to earn 20+ points between this app and SBTV, which I assume is precisely the reason why they decided to remove the watch section on this app, to bring that number down to 10+. I remember when the SB limit for this app used to be 32 before they brought it down to 10. Pretty soon we won’t be able to earn any points at all and the apps will disappear into thin air. Really not too pleased with the entire situation.
0/10 Do NOT Recommend.. 1/5
I have 2,070 points, almost at 2,200, and ALL DAY today I’ve been doing surveys, however, each time I complete a survey, I’m not earning my SwagBucks! This has happened three times in the past hour and the funny thing is that when I tried complaining about it, apparently I need to have, not only a screenshot of earning the SwagBucks, but also the surveys ID number AND the URL! The fact that they told me that I needed all of those things AFTER I had already, unknowingly, closed out of my other tabs, is just the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Plus, I find it HILARIOUS that, right when I’m getting close to getting 2,200 SwagBucks, I suddenly am not receiving them as I earn them?? How does this make any sense?? I am definitely deleting this app and do NOT recommend it to anyone else. Such a waste of my time.
are you still getting emails? 1/5
By PLEASE FX NW PLZ
I have completely tried 100% everything to stop getting email notifications from this dumb app. I have tried emailing them, going to my settings at their website, and absolutely nothing has worked and I have officially no idea what to do. PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF AND DONT DOWNLOAD
Needs tweaking 3/5
I really like this app and when I initially downloaded it, it worked flawlessly but here recently during the middle of a survey the screen goes white and I can’t refresh it. I had to close out the app and lost all my progress. It’s happened several times for the past 5 surveys. I’d really appreciate it if this could be fixed. Other than that I’d give it a 4.5 stars
This app is awful. You will spend 30 mins filling out a survey only to be “disqualified” at the end. So you get all my info anyway and don’t give me rewards? Cool.
Have also has my account suspended for absolutely no reason. Emailed customer support about it and they said they would get back to me in 10 business days. Three weeks later, I get an email back saying they will look into it. Took over a month and a half for them to reactivate my account with no explanation why it was suspended in the first place.
Very shoddy company and app, don’t waste your time.
Worst update yet 1/5
Can't answer surveys anymore because of "personal information not consistent" which makes no sense when I answer every survey the same😠 can't watch videos anymore, hard to earn anything at this point 👎🏼
Update: now the daily poll is completely gone?! Talk about earning points. Worst app ever 👏🏼
Great app 4/5
Love the idea and everything about it, my only problem is there is no way to reeder a Nintendo E shop gift card and that was one of the main reasons I got this app if you could add that it would be great.
75 cents for 20 minutes of my time? Not a chance! 1/5
By Can't have the same nickname!
Update: deleted the app for the reasons mentioned below, but kept getting countless emails. Unsubscribed from “All” notifications, but kept getting emails. Deleted the account and unsubscribed from “all” notifications again, but I still keep getting emails. Somehow, even after completely removing the app from my life, it is STILL wasting my time.
You earn “swag bucks” for each survey you do, but the term is misleading because one swag-buck is the equivalent of ONE PENNY. You can trade in your swag bucks for gift cards, with a $25 gift card costing 2500 swag bucks... On average a 17-20 minutes survey pays out 75 swag bucks (75 cents), which equates to $2.25 an hour, but according to countless reviews many of those surveys don’t pay out, so it’s probably closer to $1 an hour. If you have no job, no money, live in a developing country, and nothing else to do with your time, I suppose it’s worth it... But I have no idea why anyone would waste their on something like this. You’d be better off: searching for change in your couch cushions, picking up change on the street, wading through public fountains for coins, selling lemonade on a street corner, buying a metal detector and hanging out on a public beach, pulling out/collecting teeth and leaving them for the tooth fairy, etc...
By Lexi Lust
As soon as I signed up on my web browser with Facebook and then went to go back to the website later it continually said that I had no internet connection, after noticing that there was no where to log in with Facebook. So I downloaded the app and there was no where to sign in with Facebook again. So I am at a loss for this
Account Deactivated right after creation 1/5
I heard about this app and figured I’d try it out, so I dowloaded it and made an account. After the account is made I go to login and I get the message “Deactivated Member - please contact support for further assistance.” I’m not going to contact support to make a working account, so I guess the app isn’t usable.
This app is terrible 2/5
I have missed out on many surveys after putting 15+ minutes into them, due to the app malfunctioning. Just now I got to the final step of a long, high value survey, and then it locked up and told me I was in "private browsing mode." Ummm...it's an APP, not Safari, there is no private mode! I'll be deleting the app and only using the web browser from now on. I suggest you all do the same!
By Bred Wild
Every quiz I take says I will get a certain amount of swagbucks but I haven’t gotten more than 1, even when I spend 20 minutes on a survey. Will not recommend.
At first it was super cool 2/5
At first this app was awesome, I was filling out lots of surveys and earning a lot of SB and then not even a week into the app I stopped qualifying for like all the surveys? And I'll fill out a bunch of questions and be lead to a few different surveys only to be kicked out saying I didn't qualify. App needs to learn to let it's long-term users earn SB as well and not just cater to new users. Gonna keep trying but it's only 12:30 and I've tried three surveys and got kicked out of all of them. Kind of disappointed.
Robbed me of $30 in gift cards 1/5
All of a sudden deleted my account I guess cause I submitted a question wondering what happened to sbtv and wondering why I was locked out of participating in surveys. Makes no sense. Don’t even waste tour time. That $30 took an extremely long amount of time to build up.
It’s a waste of time 1/5
If you love wasting time then this is the app for you.
Maybe I’m not the survey taking type but I never qualify for any of the surveys. I’ve taken so many surveys only to be disqualified from them and rather than be given the points that the survey is worth, I get a “Thanks for playing. Here is a single point for your effort.”
Lots of wasted time for extremely little return.
I also purchased some items from Amazon through the Swagbucks app expecting to get several hundred points.
Not a single point was given for my Amazon purchase.
Like I said. If you enjoy wasting time for the sake of wasting time...get this app.
However, if you think you’re going to earn anything worth while from this app...skip it and find something better to do with your time.
Waste of time 1/5
I downloaded this app 2 weeks ago was going good warning SB everyday I go to the app this morning and it says I was logged out so I go to log in and it says my account was deactivated. I have no idea what for I have followed the rules and done nothing wrong and I had a decent amount of SB points too.
Needs more work 2/5
The latest version is super buggy. It arbitrarily hires to a blank white screen when you're in the middle of a survey and you have to double press the home button and clear before restarting the app from afresh. Of course, you've then lost everything you are doing.
About to delete! 1/5
By Frequent flair
I keep wasting time on surveys only to have it say that enough people have already filled it out or “not everyone can be a winner.” This app has been a complete waste of time.
Don't waste your time! 1/5
It tell you to be honest and that there are no wrong answers but they're the ones not being honest! Take this 15 minute survey to earn 75 points and 10 minutes in it tells you "Not every survey can be a winner, so here's 1 point for taking the survey." Seriously?!? I only get 1 point for wasting 10 minutes on your survey. No thanks!!
Why did you remove Watch & Discover? 1/5
Used to be a good app. Pointless using it now since the update removed Watch & Discover. Everything it does I can do better on the website (even on my mobile device). Very disappointing - I will be deleting it!
Gimme my bucks 2/5
By Okay with it
I keep doing surveys but they aren't giving me my bucks. I should have well over 150... I have 20...
Scam and Spam 1/5
Stole a gift card from me after it was earned and now said I can’t get it back because I unsubscribed from there mind blowing spam that bombarded my inbox multiple times a day.
Right when I made an account it said my account was deactivated before I even had a chance to open the app????
Here’s what they don’t tell you, they will do everything in their power to keep from giving you points you earned! They’ll crash or tell you 0+2=Anything but the actual answer, 2. This app is garbage and it taped me out of 260+ points just because it didn’t want to do what it advertised. Don’t waist you time with this app. And no, this isn’t about qualifying for the surveys, that’s something I understand completely. It’s everything you’re supposed to get points for and not getting them, and only getting a response from them if you give them a bad review in the App Store.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME/BEWARE 1/5
IT WONT LET YOU DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT BEWARE
It would take you a whole year to earn a $25 gift card (if youre lucky)
For some reason it doesnt allow you to take surveys..? It just takes your answers and apologizes for the inconvenience. Doesnt reward, big fail!!! Sad!!!
Prefer the Website to the App 3/5
By Erka Derka
Appreciate the developers responding so I edited my review. The app still didn't work properly for me.
I use to love this app but now am unable to watch videos on it and can’t earn Swagbucks from videos unless I am on my computer.
Kicked out of surveys midway 1/5
By Rosekid 🌹
I never get my points for taking a survey. In the middle of it, it kicks me out and says "not every survey can be a winner." Its getting REALLY annoying. This app is promising but it doesn't even give you the money it promises. Considering deleting it if the problem isn't fixed.
Basically worthless now 2/5
Why remove videos /watch???
Stop taking away Watch 1/5
I really only use this app for the watch videos and you keep taking it away. I get that you want people to use your other apps but I’m pretty sure the main reason people use this one is for watch and you keep taking it away
Never get points 1/5
I’ve gone on Swagbucks three different times with my account and each time spent over an hour doing surveys. About half they said I didn’t qualify for and I got a point. Many others I spent the time and answered all the questions (at least I assume it was all the questions based on the time frame) and I never received any of the points.
This seemed like a great thing to do when killing time or waiting on my children, but I’ve tried it on both my phone and my computer and it doesn’t work. I use technology daily and have a high level of understanding, so it’s not that I “don’t get it”. At this point I feel the app is just a ploy to get your information most the time. I’ll be deleting the app.
SB Is Awesome 5/5
This is the best and legit website I have found that is real and rewards you for the ton of activities they offer. Have fun !
I can’t even sign in 2/5
I signed up through my Facebook and I can’t log in via Facebook. I go through the steps and then after I click log in, it just goes to an all white screen and nothing loads! If they could fix that, I’d give it another try.
Couldn’t even sign in 1/5
When I first got the app I was excited while signing in kept opening an error
By F Swagbucks.
My account gets deactivated before I even get into the site. Worst website and app ever because of their terrible ban rules. I never cheated or tried to put fake codes in. Hope the makers burn in hell, racists.
Does not pay and sells your information they make money not you if it sounds to good to be true then most likely it is
Screen won't rotate 2/5
Every survey I tried asked me to make sure my screen rotation was turned on and to rotate my phone. Well I don't have my rotation locked and when I rotate my phone, the screen doesn't follow. What's the point of this app if the screen doesn't rotate and there is no way to continue with the survey. Not very convenient or user friendly. Please make an update where the screen actually rotates!
Convenient to use 1/5
Revising my old review:
WE NEED WATCH BACK NOW
Also surveys barely work, it's super frustrating to have to do most of the survey then it says you don't qualify.. if I did 15 mins of a survey I feel like I deserve 15 min worth of SB.
Doesn't comply with referral SB 3/5
I'm enjoying Doug the surveys and so far it's working well for me. The main reason I only gave 3 stars is because they don't comply with their bonus SB for referrals. I was truly excited to refer others on how to make extra money by answering surveys. I've already had 2 people sign up and all and I still don't see my credit. I've contact their help/support and received an automated email of nothing. I've received other emails that confirmed that my friends signed up. But no points. How upsetting. Fix it please. Also haven't seen my SH for my purchases.
It’s okay..... 2/5
Every time i go an try and do a gold survey when i get to about question 30 or so there’s a point where no matter what i do i can’t advance to a new question, i tried reloading and everything and it won’t allow me to advance to a new question. The only thing i can do is go out of the app and restart it, but when i do it the survey is gone and i have to start a new one and get the same issue, maybe there should be a way you can save a survey where you are at if the app crashes or messes up
No watch on mobile? 3/5
Ive been a user of Swagbucks for almost 2 years now and why only now is it that the watch and discover features have been removed on mobile without any explanation in the newest update. Just says "removed watch and discover". Please inform us on why this change was made. Thank you.
They like to cheat you out of Swagbucks 1/5
I was on a roll earning money on swag buck surveys then they ban me from surveys. Oh that's nice. Now days later I don't see the watch tv on my app but there's still the shop and earn sb if you spend money. Yeah, thanks a lot.
The update is awful 1/5
The update that they did is horrible. They removed the video watching part of the app. That was my whole reason for using this app. They had already made is so you can only earn 10 SB a day from it! Not happy here.
