It did that to me for a few days, now it doesn't, but I have to enter one on almost every daily survey.

Has anyone done the energy drink survey? It is taking forever to complete it seems. It just goes on and on. What is the amount of SB you got for it?

Now you tell me! LOL! I started the task really late and was in bed @4am. I've not really bothered with the tasks before and only one out of 4 completed ok last night (casino search) My alarm didn't go off this am, so not long got out of my pit 8/60SB so far, probably missed a lot of the short vids that buck up my earnings and was DQ'd from a 30SB survey. I will look on special offers for free surveys in a mo. Just switched my mobile on and immediately got a call from a german or Dutch sounding woman (coulfn't place accent as just got up!) confirming my comp entry to win an iPad and few other prizes.....not sure what comp that was, but a number was left this time, so maybe it was the same one txtg and ringing before, tho no number was left then.

Just did a special offer on PL to win 300 M&S vouchers, waiting to see if it credits. Also now got emails as I clicked to win Tesco vouchers. Not sure how reputable these sites are!

I finished the energy drink/red bull survey. Probably took 50 mins. At the finish it says:

Thank you for your time and for sharing your opinion with us. The market research company running this survey will review all entries and award qualified respondents within 3-5 business days.
What is this supposed to mean? Maybe I will get some SB for it, maybe not?

I did this survey last night, just refresh your page and you may find the points have already been added. Where was the survey as I just checked my ledger, but not had 50SB's, tho did 2 surveys yesterday and got 70sb for one.

Usually its either our personal targets for the day or the earnings target which SB have suggested to earn a bonus so today for example SB's target is 50SB so I've earned 200/50 so far today.

Go to Trusted Surveys from the drop down menu and make sure you have filled any Profiles available (these usually pay between 2-4 SBs each in themselves.)

Once that's done all you can do is check back periodically and see if you have any surveys available. It's not an exact science, we've had a spate of French surveys recently for example.

On the main Swagbucks screen at the right hand side you'll see a My Daily Goal indicator. This will tell you what the target is for today (eg: 60). People will often refer to how well they are doing so for example if they have made 100 Swagbucks and the daily target is 90 they'll say "100/90". Making at least the daily target is a very good idea as you get all sorts of additive bonuses over time.

I have a referral query. In my Referral there is one user, does that mean they have followed my link? I've checked the referral name, but it doesn't match anyone on here, but I've also noticed the amount of SB change from 10SB to 20SB and is now @ 32SB.

You get referrals when someone clicks your link, yes.

You will get SBs from them every time they win when they search up to a maximum of 1000, so here's hoping they become an active user

Just ordered my fifth 5 AGC for the month. Now concentrating on hitting target every day to get the 21 days in a row bonus (can't believe I wasn't paying attention and missed day 1!) and seeing if I can get a Paypal voucher too this month

How on earth is this possible? You rack up hundreds of points a day?
