They do not read their messages correctly! That is 100% for sure lol. I reported a broken search the other day and they asked me to tell them what I was doing up to the point the error happened so I told them. I had been searching and the phone went and when I came back my search had given me some sb but I had not entered the catcha so it crashed. Three times they emailed me and told me they would not credit the points from the catcha because I had not entered the code. I kept telling them I do not want to the points you asked me what happened before my search stopped working I am telling you what happened not asking you to credit the points. I gave in at email 3 and my search started working after a few days of being off. But I have on and off luck with the surveys no trusted ones ever for me :-/ xx

I did a survey for 200sb last night and right when I finished it gave me an error page and the points didn't credit so I thought I'd lost them but I logged in today to find them credited anyway

SBTV is playing up a bit for me too, keeps randomly sending me back to the video homepage halfway through videos. Not hugely inconvenient or anything, just really annoying.

I miss having a specific daily target on the homepage, I've been being a bit lazy with it this week since I've not had something right there to motivate me or tell me how much I'd done that day, I hope they give us a new challenge soon.

I've tried doing the NOSO section but haven't been able to get it to work since I joined (3 weeks ago)

No matter if I press continue or skip it just stays on the same page.

Any advice?
I get what i want. That isn't because i'm a brat or spoilt. It's because i'm determined, i work hard for it and i achieve my goals!

Any ad blocking software on your pc? Although I'm not sure how that would affect it.

Just ordered my 2nd voucher of the month - really didn't think I would make it today and then another survey appeared out of nowhere!

Mine does the same thing, never been able to get them to work. I messaged swagbucks and they said do it on google chrome but it still didnt work.

Hope you manage to get it going as i've given up trying now.

I've been having this same problem (im using a Mac) they've told me to clear cache and cookies and try NOT using chrome. I've tried chrome, firefox and safari and they all do the same thing

edit: strangely it works on my ipad

Very happy today - not only a day off but managed to order my second 5 amazon for this month already. Couldn't have done it without all the prompts on here to check surveys, codes etc so thanks to everyone.

Mind you it was a very slow weekend for sb's for me - didn't seem to be many around and I got chucked out of every survey; SBTV becomes very dull after a very short time!

There's 1 or 2 of the peanut labs videos that don't work for me either. Some do, some open another window which just stays blank..

Can anybody who can get it working tell us what browser they use?

I have to say I haven't been doing anything since my last voucher, i.e. no surveys or other offers, only videos and the regular stuff but nevertheless I'm slowly but surely nearing another voucher already. Whooo! that's more like it.

Must...remember...cashback......

I'm using Firefox 11 and it's OK here but only if adblock is off.

If you watch the videos on Superpoints, you can't watch the videos on Swagbucks

And vice versa

This applies to surveys on peanut labs wall as well

I didnt know that, so they must be same enterprise?. However even the videos that you can play to see how things are done on swags wont play. The ones where you can earn 75 points a day?

They are not the same enterprise.

It is the same Offer wall.

SBTV is something exclusive to Swagbucks - have you tried IE, chrome, firefox etc ?
Updated flash player ?
Updated java ?
Cleared cookies, cache, temp internet files etc.
