Help Us Get Rid of Swag Bucks Fraud

Hey Swaggernauts,

We have been coming across a number of posts on various message boards, social media pages, blogs etc. where people put their referral link with an additional offer if people sign up i.e. “register here and you’ll start with 100 Swag Bucks”, or “get $5 cash if you register with this link.”


When our users spam the internet with these FAKE OFFERS it makes the entire Swagbucks network look fraudulent, gamey, and a hoax, which you all know is completely not true. From this point forward if we come across ANY of these types of offers to go along with referral codes then that person will be DEACTIVATED IMMEDIATELY.

The important thing to realize is that this type of lying and spam HURTS EVERYONE!! Swag Bucks is an open source currency that we are COLLECTIVELY BUILDING TOGETHER and that is greatly hindered by these types of fraudulent offers. If we are going to continue to grow Swag Bucks with more prizes and games and fun and giveaways and merch and all that other jazz then we need Swag Nation to come together and help make it happen!

PLEASE email us at if you ever come across one of these types of offers so that we can take action ASAP.

And please stop sending spam so that I don’t have to be all serious anymore! ;)
