Try the ones on Paymentwall - I've been able to do a few on there, and the Sampling International Survey on SponsorPay

I think you can give the code to someone else to put into their account. I cannot find anything on Amazon but I have googled and found the question on a couple of other sites and the answer appears to be 'yes'. I'm sure I have seen another post on the old thread where someone said it was OK. Can anyone else confirm this?

Personally, I would not keep the codes on your Swagbucks account. If you don't want to give the codes to someone else right now, I would put them into your own Amazon account, use them yourself and then buy gift certificates as Christmas gifts.

If you put the codes into your own Amazon account.you can spend them on goods but can't buy any gift certificates with them.You could make your own card/certificate and copy/paste the Amazon code showing in your Swagbucks gift cards onto it,then give these to other people.

48/40 nice and easy day! But one of the games (my fave on fyoozd) wants me to install flash player, I am nervous about installing something but it's a 1 minute game and quite fun too - what do you think?

Finally got credited for a search after trying all day yesterday, and this morning.

Thanks Paul I was wondering this too as with TCB for example you have 1year to put the code from TCB into your Amazon account and then 2 years from there to spend it with Amazon and I'd been wondering if the date starts from when Swagbucks puts the voucher into my account or from when i chose to transfer it over to tCB....I'll find out when I do it I guess lol.

Adobe flash player? This is legitimate, and needed for doing other things on the web, like most surves, anyway. In fact, I thought you had to have flash player installed to play any of the games...

Mine comes up with that too. I know my flash player is up to date, but updated it again anyway and I am still getting that message on fyzood, so I think it's the game that is broken

That is a great idea re making gift cards silverfairy (am sure there is a blog or thread on this site and will be sure to check that out) May be a silly question, but have just thought of it If you were to give the code/value as a gift using made GC's, should the code be pasted from where it is in my SB account as I think that when it goes into my amazon account only the account holder can use it. I remember asking on the TCB thread about sending GC's from TCB money and the rep said that once the amount from TCB had been redeemed that it would belong to my account and could not be sent, TCB have a 'send to friend' link for the purpose of giving to others instead of having it put in your own account.

Was that a DS? Did you just repeatedly click on the DS link until you got the easy one?

Yes it was the daily survey. Normally if you get DQd it takes you back to the 'take another survey' screen. With the one that says it is taking no more responses, it didn't take me back so just closed the tab and clicked on the daily survey link again for the next survey which was the drinks one. There is no way of knowing which ones are easy or lengthy - some say they take 10 minutes when in fact they can take a lot longer, others can be quite easy to click through whereas some may be very involved.
