A reader, Gavin, let us know that MyPoints, as well as, SwagBucks have lowered lowered the amount you will receive when you buy 2 to 850 ($5) points if you use MyPoints or 500 ($5) if you use SwagBucks.  I consider this is a dead deal.

    And I consider their actions as a real cheating.

    Especially when they delay processing of rebates for a long time and then give you a credit much less than it was at the time of your purchase!

      It’s definitely a pattern to show an offer and then change it after you’ve already activated by accepting their original offer.

        Wow. this is such a good point. It becomes a pattern and not an incident.

          Tina, when I was working all I dealt with was “offers” and “acceptance” to the terms and conditions that we had set forth…and once an offer is accepted, neither party could make change unless both parties signed off on it. However, if I felt that the offeror showed a “pattern” of not meeting their contractual obligations, I would call them in for a not so nice meeting. If Swagbucks, Mypoints, Ibotta or even Checkout 51 was taken to court, they’d loose once we “activate” an offer, it’s acceptance but the rebate app also accepts the “risks” that you go out and buy whatever it is and they will make money from your purchase.
