I've only been on SB for a few days, but I find it really hard to make my daily target, does anyone else find it difficult?

I rarely get that far with Trusted Surveys. Most times I try I get the message that none are available. I'm wondering if it something to do with my computer's settings. Or perhaps I am in the most common demographic.

I clicked on the Daily Survey today only to be told 'sorry there are no surveys available - please try again tomorrow'. I sometimes go for days without getting a Trusted Survey but then seem to get one each day. I got 4 yesterday but got DQd from them all because the quota had been met. I don't think it's computer settings, I just think that it's demographics - but who knows

Hey there I have only joined a few days ago too and I am also struggling to get SB. Occasionally I have found some surveys that give you quite a lot SB and then there are others that either don't credit you or don't work at all. I think you should just keep trying them. Sometimes you can repeat the same survey on a different day for some reason!

Yes I think it may be to do with how quickly you do the survey once it gets published. There was one that worked for me probably because I kept checking the Trusted Surveys page every few minutes and a simply survey appeared on it haha.

I only joined in July and found it difficult at first, but I learned a lot from the posts on here. I don't know if you have looked, but on the very first page is a useful list of things to do to earn your SBs. Keep persevering and all of a sudden things seem to click into place. So far I have managed to hit my target every day this month but today, for example, I am struggling to exceed it - only got 55SBs (weekends always seem to be slow going). Surveys are the easiest way to earn bucks, but it can be a bit hit and miss (and frustrating when you get DQd). Don't give up and good luck - and if you are unsure about anything specific, then Swaggers on here will always try to answer your questions

I agree - I didn't check Trusted Surveys yesterday until evening. I got really excited when there were 4, but then got DQd for all of them because they had reached their quota

Those were probably the same 4 that I couldn't do either! They were all worth 50 SB and I too was excited. They all had met their required number of participants. After I kept checking another one popped up which was worth 88 SB so I was happy about that one.

Wish I had kept on checking - I will in future. I wonder how many I have missed because I have not checked often enough, although thinking about it, I would assume that once they are on your page they will stay there until you try to complete them - not too sure about that. Congrats for getting the 88 SB

I have now done about 7 daily surveys or so only told be that the quota has been met or that I didn't qualify. I think there is some sort of strategy involved by those who make these surveys. If the quota or whatever has already been met then why are we still able to take those surveys? I reckon it's some sort of trick to get our opinion for free anyway...

Thanks I don't think they disappear once they are on there but it's all about whether we still qualify for them/whether the quota has been met or not. It's very frustrating when that happens. It's happening to me right now with the daily surveys.

Just managed to complete an Ampario survey on Paymentwall for 55 SB that credited - only the second time I every managed to get accepted for an Ampario survey. Started to panic a bit because it froze when I had almost completed it, but then it moved on I'm struggling with a migraine so I'm going to give SB a rest for a few hours. Good luck everyone
