Hello, my name is Amy, and I’m a former Swagbucks hoarder.
Unable to think of anything I needed for months, I “sat” on my Swagbucks, content to watch the total climb. It wasn’t until I had my sights set on something at Amazon.com and was ready to buy that I found out a bit of Swagbucks fine print.
Prize orders are limited to 2 per day.
There is a limit of 5 orders per prize each calendar month.
Gift cards are posted on… well, not every day. There is conflicting information. I think the current rules are that they post around the 16th and 30th of each month. On the Swagbucks blog, though, it says “7-10 business days from verification.” Either way, it’s not an instant gratification-type thing.
Rather than watch your buck totals pile up, go ahead and redeem them. Once verified and posted to your account, then you can sit on them for a while. Whew!
Still worth it? Absolutely! I’ve “bought” hundreds of dollars of things with my Swagbucks. Definitely sign up and download the toolbar. Just remember. Don’t hoard your Swagbucks in anticipation of redeeming them all at once. It doesn’t work that way.
