140ish a day for 25.

Easy, right??
With bonuses, games, searches, codes etc., things add up and you can do well just on Swagbucks. But I think 50/month on Swagbucks is hard going (its time consuming, not everything credits as it should), so IMO you should consider an additional site.

I think Swagbucks lacks videos apart from SBTV. Really recommend joining either ClixSense , Neobux or InstaGC for the TokenAds wall which has lots of videos.

Clicksense and InstaGC also have a radio thing which is worth investigating. ClixSense allows you to check out in cash to paypal (InstaGC is Amazon vouchers).

I think you make more money for the time you put in, if you spread yourself a little between the sites, even though most offers do turn up on all the sites.

Good morning all. I got a reply for a DS that I reported for not crediting. They gifted me 10 SBs for complaining/the wait. Which can be up to 6 weeks!

I tried searching mse forum last night and it gave me nothing. But happy to see the string of wins!

I still haven't been credited for the DS that took me an HOUR to find and complete last night And now there are no DS for me

Might check out InstaGC like some of you mentioned.. is that one of the best alternatives if you're looking for Amazon cards? I need something to fill the extra time I have when I've run out of stuff to do on SB

The people that have had the non crediting DS's, have you done them through the new tab on the surveys page or the usual calendar card on hp?

On fb, people who did through the new survey page tab haven't had credit for the DS. But the hp card does 'seem' to credit.

Yes I agree that is what I do, spread myself between Swagbucks, Neobux and Clixsense earning wise. They all have offers slightly different and I always look between the three sites to check which is paying the highest for offers. It is best to work between different sites and I find combining Swagbucks with other sites is a good way to make decent money online.
Earnings Jan-July 28th 2014= 558.62
CS: 227.47, NB: 39.15, SB: 40, Surveys: 225.82,
