Time to start complaining en masse on their social media pages. If they're going to blame Amazon then they better update their shop and earn categories because until they do they don't have a leg to stand on in my opinion.

I have found that SB is almost criminal in not payout out any Shop&Earn SB in the last 6 months or so.

Despite many completed purchases at a variety of online sites nothing gets credited automatically by SB.

I have to send a ticket and then usually get the SB. A few a few ones pending that they are dragging their heels on.

It seems their corporate policy is to promise you Shop&Earn SB, then not give it automatically. They seem to count on the majority of people to forget about it then they pocket the $$$ commission.
Cards:HSBC WE MC 1.5%/3% travel 0 FX MC acceptance 31 day med AF $49
CTC WE MC 3% grocery 4% CTC 5 c/L CTC/Husky free roadside 1% on bill pay

I don't believe they care even you post it on FB because this problem has happened since a few months ago. If they want to fix it, the problem shouldn't last for a few months. You can see other people post some other problems about the Shop&Earn, but SB doesn't even reply it. Don't waste your time, just go to use other rebate sites.

SB considers those are courtesy credit for the ticket. That's why you won't get credit from some of the tickets. In fact, you won't get credit even you send more tickets in the future. If the T&C says I should get credit from purchasing the categories, I should get the credit, should not result in getting an illegible purchase. Apparently, it is SB's fault showing incorrect T&C for the Amazon's Shop&Earn. Anyways, it is going to be none of my business anymore since I will never use SB's Shop&Earn in the future.

Just completed unique survey (via Peanuts Labs) ... for 29 SB ...

It wasn't too long ... maybe 10 min or so ...

About investments ... dealers fees etc ...

Was shown annual statement from dealer .. and his fees ...

And then was asked ... (i think 7 questions or so ... about the statement with fees that I just saw ... -- was told that I will be rewarded for each correct answer).

Then was asked few more questions ..

Then Survey was complete ... and i was told that I answered 5 of 7 questions correct ... and earned $1.00 (besides survey rewards)

Then on the final screen ... (before pressing Complete Survey button) ... I was given $1.00 code to be redeemed at Amazon.ca ... -- Went to Amazon.ca and successfully added $1 gift card code that they gave me ... to my Amazon gift card balance :)

So basically Survey was worth something like $1.29 to me, lol ( 100 + 29 ) ... each point is worth 1 cent to me ... as lately I tend to redeem 2500 points / SB for $25 PayPal :)

The Canadians get screwed again. On the latest SWAGO board, the Americans have the option to redeem a board for 100 SB with every square filled except the center one. The Canadian SWAGO has no such option. The most you can get for the Canadian board without filling the center square is by completing the perimeter for 30 SB.

Big surprise, they seem to like screwing over non US members at every opportunity.
Is smores.tv down for anyone else today? Trying to get the daily discover to finish my to-do-list but not finding anything to do.

Maybe Cdns should create a one month boycott to let them know our dissatisfaction? I know I can boycott because I"ve been more or less not participating as there's way too much work for the $. Watch 14 videos for 1 SB. Apps stall because of ads, SWAGO stuff etc.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Nice idea in theory but tough to implement. The only way is if you can somehow get US users to boycott, that is who Swagbucks really care about.
