£10(potentially £12) free Amazon voucher or others, if spending £25 at choice of 500 retailers

Found 1st Jul 2016
just seen this on Martin Lewis site, link here
moneysavingexpert.com/dea…cks?

never heard of it myself but if on Martin Lewis would guess its genuine. its with swagbucks if your going to spend £25 anyway on something over a variety of retailers then if you claim through the link you get lots of bonus points which you can have as PayPal cash or voucher. the link explains how to claim and how to boost it £12 but I'll just copy and paste here
hth
Swagbucks pays you points (called SB) when you click through and spend at around 500 selected retailers, including M&S, Argos, Homebase and Debenhams. The points can then be cashed in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards.

Usually you only get a few points for spending via Swagbucks, but newbies to its Shop & Earn cashback offers who go via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link by Tue 19 Jul will get 2,040 bonus points if you click through to a retailer and spend £25 or more (as well as the normal points for your spend).

That gets you at least £10 in vouchers or PayPal cash. But we've blagged a trick to get you up to £12, if you go for the Amazon gift cards (more on that below).

You should only use this deal if you were planning to spend at one of the 500 retailers anyway, it's not an excuse to overspend. It's worth noting it can take up to 32 days for your voucher to be available to claim, so you can't use it on your £25 spend.

Warning: Don't enter any additional promotional codes when you make a purchase via Shop & Earn, as this will invalidate the MSE bonus offer.

How do I get the £10 voucher or cash?

Once your points have been awarded (it takes up to 32 days), visit the 'rewards store' to choose which gift card you want - Amazon, M&S, Argos, John Lewis, iTunes and more. It will arrive within 10 working days, either by post or email in the case of voucher codes. You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more points (1,689 = £10 Amazon, 1,989 = £10 PayPal).

How do I boost it to £12?

You can usually only redeem £3, £5 and £10 gift cards. However we've blagged a £1 Amazon option for users who earn this bonus, so you could redeem a free £12 Amazon voucher without having to earn any extra points, by getting a £10 and two £1 vouchers.

What counts as a newbie?

To qualify for the offer, you can be an existing Swagbucks user, as long as you haven't used its Shop & Earn cashback offers before. If you're not sure, visit your account (top-right corner), and check for any transactions in 'My Shop & Earn'.

Giftcloud are one of the 500 merchants - which sell amazon Gift Cards

So you could buy a £25 Amazon voucher through Giftcloud via Swagbucks and get the further £12 of Amazon vouchers from the promo - works out at a 32% discount

Tried a few times on this but won't accept my card details. Is anyone else experiencing problems with the 3d visa debit security?
Genuinely wouldn't go near swagbucks if i was given £100 cash directly into my hand. Endless spam and advertising emails from a multitude of different companies both here and from the US. Some days up to 6 -10 emails!! And i know it was them, as i used a one off email address i set up just for their site. Their sign up incentive is great in theory, and then when you do the surveys and stuff they ask you pretty much all the questions before saying you're not suitable etc and pay you 5p. Don't waste your time for £12!

It doesn't work no matter what card I use on the giftcloud site. Very annoying and I'll be sure to keep an eye on the cards for suspicious activity.
Interesting that it's not just me experiencing this problem with Giftcloud.

I googled and there as an offer from them on here before and several people appeared to have the same problem. It's not good enough really is it. I've been entering different card numbers and all of my details time and time again. I've dropped them a message but if there service is anything to go by i'm not hopeful.
mastercard/ visa debit - neither worked. time wasted
Giftcloud don't even have a single review on trustpilot.......avoid.
No joy with Giftcloud either!
Any other options?
That is just too complicated!
is this one of those subscription deals that charge you before paying anything out or are they legit
My debit card was unsuccessful also, got a txt from my bank asking if i had attempted the transaction as they presumably think these people are suspicious after replying yes my card was unblocked and second attempt went through fine.

Just bought Amazon gift card time will tell if I get the bonus but if I had seen the comment about them spamming you I would not have bothered.
My 2nd attempt (after bank text) failed. I'll try again, thanks.
my payment went through no problem (visa debit). Hope the bonus arrives because nothing comes up saying there is one available in the link.
I used visa debit with giftcloud without a problem, always spending on amazon anyway, thanks op

Did your amazon code work straightaway for you, mine says invalid

I've received an order confirmation and the order numbers they use look exactly like the Amazon gift code numbers eg. 3SYQ-NE8S-TLR3M. I think we both thought they were the voucher codes because i tried it too.

Maybe they have to do it manually?

The vouchers are normally instant from Giftcloud. Their Facebook page and Twitter has not been updated since April and someone posted on their Facebook page last month that they've waited over 12 hours and still not received their voucher.

Also on their contact us page, it says you can "drop us a line" but there is no Telephone number, just an email address and contact form.

Their Vouchercloud facebook page is updated daily and you can private message them.
Im pretty sure by the time you figure out what they're trying to say and actually doing it you can actually earn £10-12 from just that little extra effort on something your supposed to be doing...

I'm surprised it's got this much heat
Boots and Superdrug are also included in the retailers for this offer - have just done my normal Superdrug toiletry shop (looking out for their 3 for 2s / BOGOF on things that I would buy anyway, to maximise deal potential), and will look forward to cashing out the £10 in 32 days time.

Cheers OP!

I haven't had 1 spam email off swagbucks and I have been a member for years (probably some ticked box in your account allowing them to contact you?). I'm a paid survey expert and I would say that while swagbucks does pay out and is an established website, they frequently have already expired surveys showing or 1's you have no chance of qualifying for. Also it's not 5p you get for not qualifying. Its 1SB which is equal to half a penny
i used swagbucks for abit and got a £20 giftcard, what a regret though, all i get is constant spam and emails ever since day one of using it, i'd stay well clear, unless you want 10 phone calls a day from uk or us

So I guess as long as people use a sacrificial email address setup just for offers like this, it shouldn't be much of a problem.
