I'm getting seriously hacked off with SB at the moment. I've wasted so much time lately filling in survey after survey and getting dq'd either half way or at the end, or not getting credited at all if I do complete it. Hardly any of the offers credit these days and it's more time wasted chasing up swagbucks here and there and then being treated like a con artist. It used to be bad like this for the odd day here and there but it's every damn day now.

Supersonicads are still missing from my offer wall and I haven't read about anyone else having a problem, have contacted SB and Supersonicads themselves repeatedly and still nothing.

Seriously losing the will at the moment! (sorry for the rant!)

Just a heads up for anyone who wants to claim a voucher (for the first time) before the end of this month: I've just contacted the team and they've said the only way to validate your account from now on will be via a PIN on a postcard that will be sent to an address of your choosing.

This takes between 7-10 days, so if you've been saving up your points (like I have) you're probably not going to be able to cash out this month - unless you do it via PayPal, of course.

So just to clarify those who have validated vouchers in the past can continue to do so by 'email'/'secret answer' ?

I'm close to giving up on this too, 98 points since I joined on Monday Some of the surveys DQ me and I just went through the same survey twice to check as it said i hadn't completed all the questions, but there are ticks on all questions, so don't know why, its still in my dashboard. Am enjoying some of the games like Crazy Taxi, but gaining no points on them

I should imagine so - this is the first time that I've applied for a voucher so I think that's why.

EDIT: Sorry, should have checked the email a little better. This is what it said:

"After the verification process is completed, you will no longer encounter this issue. This is a new feature that Swagbucks.com is introducing and will need to be completed one time per user. "

Although I'm going to have to email them back again. My first email asked them to cancel my PIN, and they said they had, and this latest one said that it should arrive within 7 days. I'm beginning to get a bit of a headache!

Sorry to hear that Cath' - Most of the surveys DQ for demographic reasons and a lot of the offers may not complete because you have ad blockers or pop up blockers going in the background. There are some great one off offers that give a tonne of SBs and are free - try those for a hugh boost...

I joined SB 2 weeks ago and have been getting on average 130+ a day. Thats the daily poll, NOSO, toolbar, 2-3 searches, a few games, the daily survey and maybe another offer survey or a videos videos and one off offers... I should be redeeming my 4th Amazon voucher tomorrow.

The daily surveys are the best source of SBs after the initial burst - 70 per day (usually takes me 2-4 cause of DQs too...)

The wonderfull people here will help out if you miss a twitter or Facebok code and they can give you around 15 a day too...

Hmmm so maybe everyone will have to go through it at some point... I have had to verify each of my vouchers using my secret word. Anything that can increase security is helpful, though it may prolong the agony that is the wait for the vaucher delivery...

I use SBTV off the toolbar creeps upto 50 points a day at 3 points every 10 videos.(alot of the Splash ones are quite short)
Games Crazy taxi gives me 10 points a day, 2 points everytime you play it twice (you must pass level 1 and submit the score every time).
Today i got some points on Special offers Supersonic for adding X factor bingo.
Also SponsorPay i got the fanta app.
Had lots of little videos on RadiumOne Supersonic and the home page.
I got a 33 point search all in i just scraped the Target without even getting a survey (kept getting DQ'd or hit with the over quota after doing most of them GRRR!)
If your struggling let people know the regular guys on here are really nice.
