    Blimey - just got in from work to see the high first total. Thought it was going to be a difficult day when I saw I'd missed the swagcode too


    Woohoo - I've done it in 3 surveys, none of them longer than 10 minutes each

    Instant for 14sb about people wearing headphones.

    Forgot I had a double SB on my next complete survey so just managed to use it on that before I completed a 70sb survey.

    Now I know what you mean, it has done it for me today (or rather hasn't done it). We had a cut in our wifi while it was on ad 6, which could be one reason but I have a suspicion that they have found a way of stopping us from fast forwarding the videos this way.

    I've really had enough of Swagbucks. I put in a ticket for a Shop purchase that didn't credit, and I got the generic reply that they couldn't verify it. I replied saying I had had to submit a ticket all eight times I had shopped through SB with this one particular shop, and they've just replied basically saying that they will no longer deal with my support tickets.

    Absolutely furious, I really rely on Swagbucks for income and I invest a lot of time and put up with a lot of sh!te using their site. Really wondering whether to continue bothering.

    Any discover offers that actually credit? I'm fed up of wasting my life on them and normally I don't bother. I don't know why I'm letting Swago get to me this time, I usually ignore it because it only creates stress...... GRRRRR

I really don't recommend buying the shoes as it is a subscription thing but the quiz is very fast, free and pays immediately. You do have to put in an email address and maybe another few details but you don't need to be able to confirm any of it.

    Just went to see if there were any gold surveys. I'm still way off 135 target

    I've got the not so lovely message. It seems surveys aren't for you!

    So that's no surveys so no daily to do list and no swago boards.

    I've been on swagbucks since April 2014..and I'm always careful not to bend the truth on surveys. I've put in a ticket and asked them to reinstate them but I'm not holding my breath esp as I'm still waiting for 1250 sb from discover offer last week.

    I'm gutted and so fed up.

    I'm going to carry on doing what I'm doing until they ban me. I've never bent the rules, but it seems like it can happen to anyone if there's a discrepancy in some of your answers. I've personally moved house since I started Swagbucking and I've gone up a pay band so I'm sure that might be flagged at some point.

    When you look at the high earners, they're making an impossible about of SBs to the point where they're either cheating, or they're just dumping large amounts of their own money into offers and losing out in the long run.

    EngagemeTV has now stopped working for me, it keeps resetting itself to 1 of 6 and even if it makes it to anything above 8 on the right counter it doesn't credit. Tripping also didn't credit today nor tick the box.
