Say No to Swag – A Swagbucks Review

My dear readers, if there’s one thing I can promise you, it’s that I will NEVER choose money over you.

More than anything, I want to share you the ways to get out of debt, build your wealth, and spend more time with your loved ones. Yes, I do share affiliate and referral links, but they are all companies or products that I stand behind 100%.

That said, I want to warn you – SAY NO TO SWAG!

SayNoToSwag

I recently tried out Swagbucks as recommended by a fellow finance blogger. Sad to say, I will no longer be following her blog.

Not only did it mess with my browser settings, but it came with a lot of hidden malware. Now it may have been a coincidence, but shortly after installing the Swagbucks pin, my Facebook was hacked. I like to think of myself as a savvy internet user, so I know I didn’t clink any suspicious links or visit unreliable sites; the only thing different about my day was Swagbucks. If you made the mistake of downloading Swagbucks, I highly recommend you pull it from your computer now and run a malware scan.

The only two survey sites I stand behind right now are InboxDollars and SurveySaavy. They don’t spam you, there’s no hidden junk that’ll mess with your computer, and you can actually make money.

Don’t make the same mistake that I did – say no to Swagbucks and spend your time on something worthwhile!

      I’ve been doing both swagbucks and inboxdollars for about year now. In my swagbucks account $115 and have already redeemed $100. For inboxdollars (again I’ve been using for a year) I was able to redeem for the first time,my money earlier this month. I could get a check ,a visa,or an egift card after i got to $30. To redeem i have to give them $3 and an extra $3 if i get the visa. There are a LOT of offers on inboxdollars that look suspicious or unreliable. Like inboxdollars will send me to a site that i have to give them my address and phone number to get my money. Swagbucks hasn’t messed with my browser settings or have problems with hidden malware. My Facebook was never hacked. I do actually make money on swagbucks and when i redeem my money,I get ALL of it.

        I’m glad you haven’t yet had a terrible experience like I did! 🙂 Sadly I know I’m one of many who has had MAJOR issues with Swagbucks and so I will continue to warn people away. It’s just not worth the risk in my opinion.

    I’d never heard of Swagbucks, but always good to get honest reviews – sounds more trouble than it’s worth!

      Most definitely NOT worth the risk.
