Really slow sb day today. DQ from all surveys in trusted surveys that I've tried.
So far today today I've got 60sb, thats from sbtv, daily pool, use of toolbar and a couple of good searches (11sb for one, 8 for another). Was searching for where to get flea treatments online for both searchs so came up lucky there. Also 2 for noso.
I'll keep going with tv and try a couple of games for a bit total is 543 and really wanna get my first voucher! Maybe I'm just impatient! Got 4 Birthdays and a wedding in May that I need to buy for and 2 birthdays and a wedding in June so every little helps to cut the cost down! They're all very close family/friends as well so really can't not get something! Just for the mse'rs out there I've budgetted for these birthday spends but if I can pay for them with vouchers instead, more can go in the savings!

Have you tried any of the offers in Trial Pay, where the spend is 1? There is magazine subscriptions, snapfish photos, points is about 180 and the credit instantly after you have made payment. There is also Bigfish for $2.99, which converts to about 1.75, that was for over 600 points the last time I looked.

Look out for low spend offers on all walls and you can increase your points that way.

To the person asking about the SBTV Mobile having to reinstall to reset. I thought that I had to do that daily too, until recently.

Start it after 8 the following day, and once the first video is finished the meter bar will reset to 20% and you can carry on as normal.

Blimey, you guys all seem to get loads of SB!

I signed up yesterday and am struggling to get many! My only real source of SB seems to be SawgTV!

And by the way, yes I have read the OP.

Any tips?!

Thanks!

While you're on special offers, go to Supersonic. Check if there is a number next to the videos tab. If there is, click and watch!
Get your 10sb from playing games when you have the chance...2sb for every 2 games (make sure to send your score on each one)

And keep checking the main page for extra videos and offers

Do the daily survey for 70sb! If you're disqualified it will keep looking for a suitable survey....you SHOULD complete one eventually
Hi Toby....these are tips i posted for someone yesterday, hope they help

Just did the 70sb survey, takes me to 169 today, 1733 in 5 days! Ordering my second voucher right now

Can someone explain the swag code please? Where do you find it? I think I'm still trying to get to grips with swagbucks, I really like it but I definitely don't earn as many as most people on here!
Thanks!

I'm purposely not gonna try the picture ones as I have quite a few family weddings etc coming up in the next few weeks, so gonna wait and use them to print out any photos we really like and want to frame/give to family etc.
I don't think it would let me use the offers twice! I did think about the vista free t-shirt but postage is a bit on the high side for the amount of points you get so don't think it wuld b worth it in the end. (was gonna get a goofy type company one for hubby)
I don't think I've come across a mag subscription one so might g look for that as my subs is up fo renewal so that could be good.

159/120 target met!

Daily survey for me was based on energy drinks with a focus on red-bull. Shortly after being asked what kinds of cans you have seen in the shops (visual images with tickboxes) it moves onto demographic questions with a security question that asks you to tick a specific box from 1-5. Be careful you don't get it wrong or I think you'll be DQ.

I can't get things like games to pay out. I play the game but don't get any SB. Same thing happens when they say to click on a video and watch it all to earn sb.

Thanks to whoever posted that you can keep doing daily surveys until they run out! Thanks to this and a lucky search win, I'm on 450 after only claiming my second voucher last night.

Thanks for the advice!!!

I followed it and did a few survey's and I have now got 300 SB just from today!!!

It all seems a bit too good to be true - can't wait to get that first gift certificate!

Does anyone know how the referral thing works? I assumed that you just got a certain number of SB for a referral but it looks like somehow you earn when they do? - Any ideas???

Thanks,

Toby

I joined swagbucks, but got dis-heartened because of the grossly dis-proportionate amount of time you need to spend on there to earn little money, far too slow.
Shame

Does anyone else find this?
