Gift Card Security Upgrade

Posted by on Wed, September 17th, 2014 at 2:36 pm

You value your rewards and we love nothing more than delivering them to you.

Since 2008 we’ve awarded over $70 Million in rewards to you, our members. We want to continue delivering you the rewards you that work for and we want to make sure it’s the best experience possible.

In order to do that, we are going to launch a new system to improve Gift Card security, beginning tomorrow evening (September, 18th, 2014).

When your gift card order is fulfilled, we will notify you by email, similarly to how we notify you today.

1. Click through from the email to “View My Gift Card Code.”

* Not sure what email you have with Swagbucks?  See our latest blog post about updating your email address.

2. Next, you will need to enter your password or login to your account.

If you are already logged into your Swagbucks account, you will be asked to provide your password.  If you’re not logged in you will need to provide your email address and password.

If you can’t remember your password, you will need to reset it in order to access your gift cards.

3. Once you’ve successfully logged in to your Swagbucks.com account, you will be able to access your gift card. Here’s an example of what it might look like for you.

One thing to note: The link in the email that you receive for your gift card is valid for 24 hours.  Once that 24 hours passes, you will need to go to My Gift Cards and request a new email.

This new upgrade will affect both new gift cards as well as any gift cards you have previously redeemed.

We realize this is a big change and we want to make the transition to a more secure gift card process as easy as possible.

If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section below and we will answer them for the next hour.
