You can watch as many videos as you like, or can stand, but you will only get points if you watch different videos ie. you won't get them if you keep watching the same video over and over again.

I think there have been 4 or 5 codes out today in a combination of blog, facebook and twitter. People generally and very kindly post when they've been released on this thread. You aren't allowed to actually say the code but you can drop fairly massive hints and people are good at helping eachother.

The collectors bills are, as you suspect, random and just come with searching.

If you haven't already, do read the first page of this thread as it's very practical and has lots of tips and sensible suggestions but remember also that everyone on here is helpful and kind, and will do their best to help. Don't think there's such a thing as a daft question.

With the codes, as the one on twitter says its number two does that mean that there has only been two? Or have others come out earlier today? I did the dice one and the new one. Finding it all a little confusing to start with! Also, how do you earn the collectors bills? Is it just by using the search bar?

Thanks in advance
Hi, welcome to the thread. You can earn 75sb a day watching SBTV, and get 3sb for every ten different videos you watch. You get the collectors bills by searching - it's completely random, but usually you can get two or three searches a day (the maximum is 4). I usually find that best times to search are first thing in the morning when the Swagbucks day starts (7am at the moment, but 8am after next Sunday), mid afternoon, in the evening and sometimes in the early hours of the morning. The best thing to do is to keep an eye on facebook and when you see people saying they have 'singles', 'dubs', 'trips', then it is a good time to search.

I think there have been 5 codes so far - I know I have only got 3

Thanks joeyjimbo for your post, really helpful. Will have a look at page 1 on your advice.

I'll just have the SBTV on in the background on mute! It is pretty tedious but easy to just change the video very few minutes between reading! And will hope to pick up some bills over the coming days.

Have tried out the games but they don't seem to pay out (unless I'm doing it wrong?!) And will keep my eye out for the codes, would be nice to reach the target on my first proper day of looking at this.

Thanks again x

A bit stuck today. Just 80/110. I've only managed two of the codes as I've been busy. I hope there's some more to come.

With the games you have to go back to the menu to get the Swagbucks (at least that's what I've found), I normally hit the "Back to Games" button when I finish a level/round of a game.

Thank you Paulshorse and jaha2, really helpful.

How do you get the 75SBs for watching the TV, does it get credited just for watching it in a day?

And will try that tip with the games and when to search.

You peeps are great

You peeps are great
Every time you fill the meter (ie watch 10 videos) you get 3 sb credited and you can earn a maximum of 75sb each day (to be honest, you would probably need to be watching them the entire day to get 75sb). The easiest (and sometimes most frustrating) way of earning is to do surveys. You will see on your home page a large red icon with todays date and Daily Survey. You can complete one of these each day (assuming that you can get accepted for one) and that will earn you 70sb - there is more info in the first post of this thread. Sign up for Trusted Surveys and also try surveys on Peanut Labs wall. There are other surveys that you can try - on TrialPay there are 'Opinion Surveys', 'Samplici'us' and 'Ampario' (Ampario ones are very few and far between though). You can also do the surveys on Payment Wall and Sponsorpay (Sampling International Survey on Sponsorpay). Occasionally they don't credit so be prepared to get frustrated sometimes. Make sure that you have the latest Flash extension on your browser, Java and Windows Media Player as a lot of surveys need those to run. Hope that helps, but just give a shout if you need to know anything else

You can earn a maximum of 10sb a day playing games. Usually you get 2sb for every two games that you play, but I find that you either need to post a high score or play the game for a reasonable length of time (2 or 3 minutes). Sometimes you will automatically be taken back to the main games screen or, as Jaha2 says, you need to click the 'back to games' button. You will get a popup which tells you when you have earned any swagbucks. Occasionally it does take longer and for some reason you need to play 4 or 5 games to get them to count (no idea why - it's just one of the frustrating things with Swagbucks)

Afternoon All

Only been online 45 mins and have had the PL tradesman survey and DS on fast food credit 157/110. I've also been dq'd from 2 102SB surveys, but I knew that sounded too good to be true for me lol! I forgot about the new swag code hunt....oops! I'm not sure how it works, do you still get points for normal searches, but the codes on FB etc are clues to what's in the picture? I was reading some of the posts while some vids played and went to the pic, does the item mentioned, such as the die vanish after code expiry time as I can't see the die, but there is no 'expired' message in blog. I'll have to keep an eye on here so as not to miss more codes lol.
