I thought I would start a thread about the "bad" sites that Swagbucks offers us to make Swagbucks.

I'm pretty sure that most of us have had a bad experience of some sort with a site to where we had to fight to get our Swagbucks after completing the offer or else we have Googled about a site that Swagbucks offered us only to find that the site has a bad rep.

I received this offer in my messages & I wanted to let my fellow swaggers know about it so they can avoid it.

Another Swagbucks deal to avoid is http://www.tryskinnychocolate.com...d.com%252F

Offer is for a free box of chocolate & you just pay shipping. You get $5 in Swagbucks & a headache trying to refute the $34.95 charge on your credit card.This is a ripoff.

I almost completed this one today, but noticed the fine print "7 days after receiving your free trial you'll be enrolled in our monthly service of $34.99 plus S&H - call 1.855.354.6917 to cancel anytime". Not worth the hassle to have to call in and risk getting charged. Quite deceptive to hide that kind of info in the corner.

Shoedazzle also has a similar call-to-cancel "membership" tactic.

I have learned that even though some Swagbucks deals sound good that some of their deals are not worth the hassle.
Fortunately I personally have not had a bad experience because I research before I jump.
TY for the Shoedazzle tip. Smilie
