It's supposed to be the same as ours isn't it? I think there's always a hoo-hah about SB saying they can't have country specific targets (but managed personalised ones for new users recently ...)

It is probably because the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, so I guess the US would have the same goal as we do.

Spent 15 mins doing TS survey only to be told 'I don't qualify'. Similar thing yesterday except was told they are 'over quota'.

I'm tired of this. The one swagbuck reward for my time (0.5p) is insulting.

It's just a pain all the time so I'm not doing any more surveys that are longer than 5 mins. I'm not going to spend ages checking for trusted surveys either.

I've signed up for nectar. Every surveys credits (so far), you get a point for every search and for every video watched you get points instead of points for every 10 videos. Number of points you can accumulate is limited, but at least they don't waste your time.

Its not silly As Trix-a-Belle said lots of info on first page.

DS is a Daily survey that shows up on the home page its the red card with date on, you can try and when you get the congratulations screen at the end your done. You can only do one a day.

TS are trusted surveys if I'm online I check every hour to a hour under answer -surveys. You can do as many as those as you like.

Games is under play tab and you get 2SB for every two games the most you can earn in a day is 10SB.

(Hope that helps,)

Sorry, but a stupid question coming - When it says "install the app on Facebook" am I running the risk of getting a virus on my computer? I'm not very familiar with Facebook so not sure what I am actually doing by installing apps?

Also has anyone tried the "Jay Z" video / follow on Twitter. I have tried it both on Radium1 and PL and neither have credited, even though I got the "Congratulations" screen.

Yes I agree I also just use Nectar Adpoints for watching tv ads as it pays per ad and is allot better than the Swagbucks TV.
I mostly use Swagbucks now for any surveys that come available and the odd search and any high paying offers, the rest like watching ads is higher with Adpoints and other places so I don't need to bother with SBtv anymore.
Time has to be used effectively to make the most from every site.

For anyone who may get the Leisure DS about cruises and holidays in Florida, don't bother. I was dq'd before and allowed myself to be suckered back in and was dq'd at exactly the same place as last time!

Nice as I haven't won anything in the last few days of searching for things.

I did the Jay Z one late last night and was credited.
You did need to click Follow on Twitter though before it credited.

This is the reply I have had off Sponsorpay. I don't really understand what they want me to send, I'm confused!

I would like to thank you for your inquiry.

Please note that a lot of surveys require you to pass an eligibility test first before you are actually able to start completing the real survey. If you do not like running the risk of being rejected for offer completion, please try other offers.

If you think you did everything correctly until the very end, please send us a screenshot of your survey history / your results with identification details.

We apologize for the delay you have experienced and look forward to resolving this matter for you promptly.
