Swagpression: It is what happens when they deactivate you :(

UPDATE:  I HAVE BEEN REINSTATED! My frown has been turned upside down! SWAGBUCKS, you will not regret it :)
I now have my own swag word that describes my experience with swagbucks, Swagpression.  Swagpression is when swagbucks finds out that your husband signed up for swagbucks 6-7 months ago and they deactivate you when it is time to receive your gift card and you are left with NOTHING!  It happened on Tuesday night.  I was shell shocked.  My husband is not active with swagbucks.  He had 9.  I had close to 200 with 5 gift cards heading my way and 30 referrals.  As you can imagine, this was a big blow to my dream of a FREE Christmas.  I am going to take this as a learning experience and move on. I was careless, and it was my fault.  I feel like my boyfriend, swagbucks broke up with me, and I have sent e-mails to them begging that they would take me back.  LOL! He even took away my gift cards.  Ok, I am being a little melodramatic.  

Well, if you are currently with swagbucks, make sure that you:

  1. Never have more than one person in your household sign up for swagbucks.  I was careless and did not read the rules carefully.  Already have 2 accounts?  Contact and ask them to deactivate one of your accounts.  They may not have caught you yet, but when you cash in your swagbucks they will make sure you did not violate this rule.  They will find out!
  2. Do not post or list an actual swagcode ANYWHERE!  You will be banned for life!
  3. Do not search too many times within a minute.  Use authentic searches or they will deactivate you and you have to beg to be reactivated.  
  4. Know the rules of the game. I would post a link but they have blocked my IP address.  
A moment of silence for my lost gift cards, referrals and my dream of a FREE Christmas!

Hopefully Swagbucks and I will make up and I can join you as a Swagernaut.

That stinks! I didn't know that only one person per household could sign up. I am not very big in this...I use google reader for so many of my sites taht it just takes too much time to type in all the sites I follow. If I get free gift cards then great but if not no big deal. I am sure there is another type of program out there that you can do. Sorry to hear about your account.
