Click on Submit a support ticket
The list only goes down as far as 20-6-12 and all say completed and the one I want isn't on the list? Does that mean it's tough luck then?

Thanks

That's strange, I clicked on my account on PW, then onto my offers. It's lising 11 pages of surveys etc I've taken with them, and only a handful are listed with a green tick and 'collected'. But I do keep track of my sb's as I'm earning them, I'm sure I've been paid for everything from PW...

I'm confused
Can't think of anything smart to put here...

Have earned 138SBs today, including 130 over lunchtime thanks to a Trusted Survey and a 10SBs win. Not bad for starters, hope I qualify for the daily survey today though, it's annoying when I'm being constantly DQ'd

Listed there is everything you've ever tried to do survey wise. It's not just ones you've completed.

Just in so done nowt on sb yet but my new phone has arrived :-) not perfect got a huge chunk of colour missing. Why sellers lie on ebay ad amazon is beyond me. Gonna message them and tell them but in general the phone is nice and I am sure I can get a replacement back for it. Japan normally has pages of phone parts lol. Still irritating you buy one that is up as perfect condition. It is other wise seems nice, slower running than an iphone but I only wnat it as back up phone so it's fine. :-) of to see if I can set it up have lunch and then head down on sb.

Re tasks I get angry with them sometimes as well but once you get the hang of some of them it's a good earner. Fisher and casino ones are good and find address is slow but good if you have nowt to do and do not want to really pay to much attention. The way I see it is I am watching tv might as well do one and earn a few pence as not lol. xx

All you do is hop over.

You start a new thread (same OP and everything), then on the last post of here post a link telling people to hop on over.

I think i'm just in the mentality of doing it in the thread.

I now solemnly swear I will no longer download random things to my lappy
Normally windows will update itself, but if you're worried, open the control panel (start menu), scroll to Windows update (at the bottom for me, but it depends) and it will tell you if you have optional or essential upgrades. You should be able to update from there, but if your computer is scanned and functional then I wouldn't worry.

Yay for not downloading, just remember google is your friend! x

The list extends beyond the border of the page so I hold the left mouse button at the bottom of the frame and scroll down to see the remaining items. All the 'pending' transactions are right at the bottom.

Ohhh i'm quite disappointed now. I haven't been able to do SB in a couple of weeks because of a busy couple of weeks in my new summer job, but decided to get back into it this morning. Didn't know there was a monthly goal thing going on and I JUST missed the day's target, getting 35 / 40. Can't get the full month bonus of 300 now OH well at least I can still get 200 for 21 days straight.
