    The last few days I've had surveys not crediting, tickets not ticketing... so frustrating.

    I did get over 300 yesterday, but that was largely due to getting 100SB for a search!!

    Can I ask what your largest earners are? Obviously 70SB in app videos, but after that I get a bit stuck!! I've read most of the stuff there is, but maybe I am missing something

    I wouldn't worry about trying to emulate these high targets, it's not worth your time or effort. My first goal is usually around 100, lower at weekends and my second goal maybe 120-160. I sometimes hit that, sometimes not - it doesn't make a big difference.

    Swagbucks pays so little overall, I don't feel there's any value in running down your computer or phone, and running up your electricity bill for pennies. Just hit your first target if you can and you'll be fine. Join the influencers programme to make easy cash with practically no effort. I make £50 a month like this.

    My Mastercards also came through again and worked and have already gone towards paying my electricity bill down.
    The 5 Mastercard is also back in the redeem section of £1-£5.

    My Mastercard came through. I have the details for it but I can't seem to figure out how to send money to a bank account with it.

    Any ideas?

    Edit: Figured it out. I had to invoice myself and pay the charge. Bit of a pain losing a chunk of the money though. There must be a way to do it; I tried via Circle but you can only invoice people with a Circle account.

    From a Telegraph article of just over a year ago

    " Cost per year (one full charge per day of an iPhone 6s): 48p"

    I have seen as high 0.5p per charge quoted for mobile phones which would be about £1.80 a year charging once a day.

    This year to date I have over £130 from mobile watch alone at a rounded up maximum energy cost of £1.20

    My desktop and monitor would generally be in use anyway so there would be almost no additional costs to run swagbucks but assuming I used them for 5 hours a day drawing full power just to run swagbucks (65 watts for the PC and 18 for the led monitor) the energy cost would be less than £20 a year.

    This year to date (excluding mobile watch) I have over £280 at a rounded up maximum cost of £14.

    Altogether that's over £400 at a maximum energy cost of less than £15.

    Not been credited for about 300 SB worth of stuff the past two days. I've been trying really hard to get to 700 for the MSE newbie bonus and I've been confined to the house. Put two tickets in so we'll see.

    Anyway, I finally got 700 (yay!) and I got credited 1,240 SB instead of the 1400 that was advertised on MSE. Is this right?

    Also, what's the best card choice to redeem to get best value? I have almost 2000 SB now.

    Thanks in advance

    Try clicking through to one of the hotels that are on a major website like Expedia, Booking, Hotels etc rather than homestay/airbnb types. Basically click through until you get to the payment details. It's always worked for me that way
