Happy Hour with Jon of Frontline Support

Good Afternoon Swaggernauts!


Jon here from the Swagbucks Frontline Support team serving up more “Refresh-ments” and “Swag-petizers” with today’s TOPIC ON TAP… Referrals! 

I will be reviewing some common policies and details when it comes to Referrals as well as including a great challenge for you guys where you can win 2 for 1 prizes!

If you don’t already know, a great way to earn Swag Bucks is to refer friends and family to the site with your referral link, earning you matching Swag Bucks for those they earn. Here are some Swag-petizers to review:

  • You will find your referral link in the “Invite & Earn” tab, found under “Tools” at the top of your page.
  • You can refer users via email. You can enter their email address into the provided space and they will receive an email containing a link to register an account.
  • You can refer users with your referral link by copying the link directly and pasting it to a message, email, Facebook wall, or tweet. Any place they can see it!
  • You can invite your friends via Facebook and Twitter as well by clicking the appropriate icons. You will then be able to select which of your friends you would like to invite and they will receive a sign up link directly to their Facebook/Twitter accounts.

There are some very specific details users need to know about the matching bucks that they will earn from their referrals:

  1. You will only earn matching Swag Bucks for those your referrals earn from SEARCHING
  2. You will only earn up to 1,000 Swag Bucks from each referral. After the referral hits 1,000 Swag Bucks from searches, you will no longer receive any bucks from that user.
  3. You will not earn any Swag Bucks from your referral’s sign up bonus, searching wins only.
  4. There is no limit on how many referrals you can have.
  5. You will only be able to earn Swag Bucks from your immediate referrals, you will not earn from the bucks your referrals make from their referrals… say that ten times fast!
  6. It can take up to 48 hours for your referrals to appear in the “My Referrals” section of your Swagbucks account.
If you experience any problems and would like to Contact Frontline Support regarding your referral, please wait the 48 hours to insure that they have not yet appeared in your account. If they do not show after the 48 hours, please provide us with the User Name, Full Name, and/or E-Mail address used to register the account. At that point we can take a look into the accounts and investigate the issue for you.
I hope this information has been helpful for you guys and you take advantage of this really great and easy way to earn Swag Bucks!
