Can I just ask - and sorry if it's been covered already, but with the unlucky ones that are being given the 'new' daily goals, is your bonus for meeting the goal still 10% of the goal itself? IE if your goal is 240 SB - is your daily bonus for meeting it 24SB?

Some of your successful searches have made me giggle, I usually search for boring things like recipes.

Did get 14sbs for my search this morning for electrical cable to fix my oven (see, boring searches!) instead of the usual 7 or 8 I get.

Off to play some games during my lunch hour. I really should just play the quick 1min long games but I'm getting addicted to the mahjong game.

I'm so sorry

Looks like the bonus is 10% of the inflated targets, which is good in one way, but what they're offering as extra, they are likely taking away many times over from the people that don't hit the daily goal. I get lucky more often than not and I would say my daily average is 300SB but there are plenty of days I only just scrape modest targets of 100 or so. If there are no DS or TS you qualify for and you have used up any worthwhile special offers, 200+ goals are pretty much unachievable!!

My longest outstanding AGC was verified on 16th March - and I have 5 outstanding in total. It would be nice to get some sort of communication from SB as to when the backlog will be cleared, if ever!!!

Ok in an effort to be J.B. Fletcher can I ask you new goal people some questions?

When did you sign up?

Are you anyone's referral?

What happens to the target the next day if you don't meet a goal?

Do you have more surveys videos offers ect.? (you will have as you are new, and it's difficult to ask someone new if they have it more than the norm but - how many TSes do you get? Rarely do we get more than 3 or 4 in a day, even on a really good day.)

How are you finding making the targets? Easy, hard?

Did any of you enable anything, e.g. when you signed up, were you asked to trial anything? Go through extra pop ups or pages?

Were your first goals very high?

Would hand out banners but can't be bothered.

It really does suck what they're doing to the new people though.

I've been on SBs for a while but don't use it as much as I used to, mainly because I got tired of constantly being dqd from surveys.

Nowadays I just do toolbar, noso, daily poll, search and a few games and make about 16-24 points. My points/targets this week have been tue-12/90, Wed-16/80 and 24/100 (today)

I'm past trying to reach the daily target TBH, I just don't have the time or the patience anymore

I landed an uber quick TS on auto trader today - paid up 75sbs instantly for about 10mins. So with the usuals, a couple of vids on my homepage, a search result of 8sb for 'the lion king', I'm sat at 103/100 today. No more low-fiving for me miwa...until tomorrow, no doubt!
Can't believe some of these targets given to newbies - really not very fair at all. And I'm still waiting for 4 AGCs...I only need another 9sbs before I'd be good for another one, but not sure I want to do that if they aren't paying out yet. Oooh, decisions, decisions. Back to IBP I go xx

I wonder if somebody can help me.

I have enough to claim a 10 paypal payment and it asks me to verify my email address. Several times I have clicked for it to send me an email to verify my address but nothing has come through.

I have tried checking my profile to see what e-addy I registered with but cannot find out. I wrote to the swagbucks team but they have not responded.

I sign in with a username, not an email address.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

Thumbs down

No vids on my homepage, just two offers - Rise card; some sort of fee charging visa credit card - needs an actual application unlike that other offer, and Are you interested - installing/joining a dating site via facebook & it looks like it doesn't credit (again - saw after I'd tried it so
somebody said on the march thread it hadn't credited).

Today is a right day of fail, uncredited surveys/offers here and there look like they won't be crediting, left my bag in a shop/resturant & had to go back in & up in the lift again to rescue it, lloyds cash machine ate my debit card, savings account card's expired and I've managed to lose the replacement so that's two cards having to be stopped and replaced & the internet went down just as I tried to post this the first time. Oh and bt sent me a scary letter threatening to cut me off if I don't pay a bill I've already paid - was delayed by Easter was then I noticed the date
"And suddenly I find myself listening to a man I've never known before,
Telling me about the sea..."

I can see my email address in the 'my settings' page (under the menu at the top right).

Started a TS that paid 50 sb for 2 mins.

It wanted your details then went to a page to download something for a research thingy.(some survey panel I think)

I clicked off as very wary of downloading anything off swagbucks site but looked at my daily bar and been credited so very happy with that.!! 74/100
