    Did anyone get the Spotify follow on survey? I completed a survey through Swagbucks a while ago and they asked me if I wanted to take part in an ongoing thing for them. Basically they monitor your Spotify usage and ask you questions about your listening habits. My last survey with them took about 20 minutes and I should be getting £7 off them tomorrow for it. Better than minimum wage.

    Edit: Also, is there a more efficient way to use SBTV? I've just been running it for 20 mins every morning to get my Daily Watch, but I'm aware that some videos seem to be a lot longer than others. Do I have to actually pay attention and bookmark the short ones or should I just keep it running indiscriminately?

    Swagbucks refunded my gift card with a message to say they don't usually refund rewards already sent out.
    This item has been refunded for one of the following reasons:
    It is currently out of stock
    We are unable to ship due to an unrecognizable address
    It was returned by carrier due to an undeliverable address
    Your account may need to undergo Mobile Verification

    So I redeemed a mastercard and for the same thing to happen again saying the code has expired,

    So another ticket put in. I have redeemed mastercards fine in the past, so I have to say this is the last time I will, will stick to paypal or Amazon, far less fuss.

    @Ivana B Rich did you get your reward sorted?

    but they haven't replied since then, and I decided to order paypal instead. There were others on facebook with the same problem so its not just us two

    right thread!

    Be careful about doing Toluna surveys through swagbucks but NOT through the 70SB link on the front page. They still count towards your daily limit of Toluna surveys (I think it's 5 max) but if you do them through Peanut Labs or gold surveys they usually pay FAR less than 70SB for exactly the same surveys. For example if you did 3 of them through Peanut Labs say and they paid 29SB, that is 41SB less per survey, and you would then only be able to do 2 max through the 70SB link instead of a full 5.

    Cheeky and shadey!

    Watch habits that seem to result in me loosing Watch:

    Having Watch running from 8am to 2am the following morning.
    Having Watch running at 7 fifty something in the morning when the Daily Goal/'sb earned today' counter resets to zero.

    So I stop using watch at around 12pm and don't start it again till the counter zeros.

    ncrave comes and goes depending on how much is available.
    I never notice the sponsored vids as separate from ncrave!
    Gave up on videoLab as no longer worth the hassle.

    Well first day since starting a couple of months ago that I haven't been able to complete a gold survey. Been kicked out of them all or I am refusing to spend 20 mins (as it's always much longer anyway) for 46 sb or something. Perhaps I am picky but I hope a decent selection of survey's return.

    They really seem to be actively trying to make people stop using SB by constantly lowering rewards and making it harder and harder to hit daily targets.

    20 was pushing it but now 25 clips for 3 SB that's even worse than the groups of clips on the homepage "watch".

    At least the mobile apps are running fine for 70 (140 with the 2 am reset), with swag games for 10 then search wins, daily poll, swagcodes, survey DQs etc the first daily goal is easily achievable without needing any survey completes or tying up my PC running videos when wanting to stream other things.
