Swag Bucks announced yesterday that they will no longer send out physical gift cards. Instead, all gift cards will awarded online, and the redemption code will be available in your Account Profile, under the new “My Gift Cards” section. Redemption codes should be posted 4 to 7 days after you redeem your Swag Bucks. It appears that there won’t be any notification email to let you know that your redemption code has been posted.
While this change makes it inconvenient, if not impossible, to convert Swag Bucks into gift cards for gift giving, Swag Bucks claims that it will allow them to expand their gift code offerings. So we’ll have to see what other redemption options become available.
