I find that I’m doing less and less of the swago boards, I didn’t even do much to begin with, but since most of the stores are closed for in-store cashback (those were good deals) and there isn’t much difference between scanning a barcode on Shoply, I decided to do just the second row.
Interesting info, thanks. What do you mean about there not being much difference between in-store cashback and scanning a barcode on Shoply? Just that both require B&M visits? I imagine you can spend a lot less to earn SB with Shoply but that in-store cashback pays more SB?
I stopped doing Swago shortly after Shoply was made a regular Swago tile/activity (because I couldn’t get the app to install no matter what I tried) and when they stopped offering the Spin & Win wheel.
Now you can’t even earn more than 5 or 10 SB without spending real money and sweepstakes entries cost almost as much as you earn if you want to submit a pattern that doesn’t require spending money. Swago now takes much more time than it’s worth IMHO (though I’m sure it’s very profitable for Prodege)… I consider Swago a heavily devalued/throttled activity and I no longer recommend it (though I may announce new boards for those that still do it).
Oh I meant that in-store cashback Swago lines gave a good deal of SB back (I got nearly free towels from Bed Bath and Beyond), but the Shoply Swago lines usually don’t give much SB back. Probably a confusing post on my part.
I still like doing the quick 10 to 30 SB swago lines too, it just seems like not that long ago they were doing more with the in-store cashback.
OK, thanks for clarifying. It seems in-store cashback could go either way: begin to increase CB offers now to drive traffic back to B&Ms and ward off store closures… or hold off until the covid-19 issues largely resolve (an hope they have enough viable locations left to support in-store CB). I’m not really sure what to expect, but online ordering with local pickup will probably become increasingly popular so they need to set up a CB system for that hybrid option.
Might be just my experience, but with Best Buy normal online shopping cashback worked if you picked up things in-store.
