I'm not sure that the bouncing bonus situation is directly or solely related to gifting. Our second line seems to have had the $10 bonus (acquired over 10 days ago) removed, and then re-credited. (The chronological order of it's appearance has moved in the Billaway rewards report, although I didn't actually look during the time period when it was probably temporarily gone.) I haven't shared any rewards from that line.
Although I suspect it's a glitch from an accounting change, it wouldn't surprise me if FreeUP ends up with a policy that bonus rewards aren't giftable-- only earned rewards.
I can confirm Kent's theory - I have 2 accounts the received the bonus about a couple weeks ago it had been taken away, it came back last week/early this week and noticed yesterday it was removed again and has not been re credited. There has been no gifting to or from these accounts and the are completely separate accounts.

We're up to four times, now.
It's actually getting to be funny.
Makes one wonder who's minding the store, if anyone. My rewards disappeared, and I emailed support asking where the hell they went, and they reappeared shortly thereafter. But did support do anything? Who knows? I also mentioned to support that the many errors occurring on their website was not good for business.
