We know that one of your favorite ways to earn Swag Bucks is through SBTV, a great Swagbucks platform where you can watch videos on the latest entertainment and current events, pick up some new fashion and beauty tips, learn delicious new recipes, and so much more, all the while earning Swag Bucks along the way.
We’re aware that there have been some questions on what is the appropriate way to get the most out of SBTV without crossing the line of what is and isn’t allowed, so I’m here to shed some light on the topic. The important thing to keep in mind is that we offer SBTV as an entertaining and rewarding feature that you should actively engage in. We hope you enjoy the content just as much as all the Swag Bucks earned from it.
Here are a few helpful Do’s and Don’ts from Allison in our Compliance Department to help steer you in the right direction:
We Do encourage members to watch SBTV actively, to enjoy the content, and to try and earn the maximum amount of Swag Bucks per day. We love when people get rewarded.
However, please Don’t use any auto-refresh or auto-reload in your internet browser to passively watch SBTV or to walk away altogether from your computer/tablet/smartphone. This type of shortcut is easily detected and is definitely not in the spirit of Swagbucks and not what SBTV was designed for.
SBTV is designed for you to actively enjoy the content and get rewarded for viewing it.
If you do not use an auto-reload or auto-refresh then you are doing great and do not need to fear deactivation for trying to exploit SBTV.Also, Don’t use any unauthorized software, script,Swagbucks bot, or mobile emulator to fill in your captchas automatically for you, or to try and exploit SBTV or SBTV Mobile in any way. Swagbucks cheats and Swagbucks hacks are not in the spirit of Swagbucks nor the Swagbucks community and are also easily detected by our compliance systems. Using bots can get you permanently banned from continuing to use our site.
Finally, Don’t view SBTV through any third party site. While we use iframes for some of our special offer partners so that you may view their services and products, we do not allow third party iframes for viewing of SBTV. Only view SBTV directly through Swagbucks.com or through your Swagbucks Mobile App without the aid of any unauthorized software. Again, if you are using these bots or any unauthorized third party software, your account will be detected by compliance and unfortunately deactivated.
These unauthorized SBTV viewing methods go against the intent of SBTV and can jeopardize the good standing of a Swagbucks account. If you do not use any of these methods to attempt to exploit SBTV, then you can continue to actively enjoy SBTV and hopefully max out daily on Swag Bucks earned. While the vast majority of Swagbucks members would never use any of these methods and will never get deactivated, there unfortunately is a dedicated group of users who are always looking to exploit our site and are looking to introduce other members to their cheating methods.
If you feel your account is ever deactivated in error, we encourage you to write in to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask any questions you have, tell us why you feel you may have been deactivated in error, or to request a new account with a fresh clean start. We are willing to reactivate accounts as long as the deactivation was in error or the cheating was limited and the member is willing to stop, however these accounts continue to be periodically checked to make sure they remain compliant with a fair playing field for all Swagbucks members.
