Had 6 lots of 20SB for write questions based on keywords, find this task quite easy. Is quicker than the write answers to questions but slightly less SB

Nice quick DS on my views on looking after the oceans. Didn't seem to matter that I had no idea about the subject at all or that my knowlege was very limited, 5 minutes long and it credited.

Has anybody downloaded a Big Fish game and had the 515 bucks credited?
Was thinking of giving that offer a go...

Calling it a night this evening...

503/80 today!

This was mainly earnt through surveys. I had the DS, A couple Trusted survey things and then finally got around to doing the questions on PL to enable me to get more surveys, which I completed a couple of.

Really pleased as it means I wont be too dissapointed if i dont do much tomorrow. :-)

Personally I'd never download anything from SB, it's just too risky as far as I'm concerned

As reguards bigfishgames they are legit and safe to use, i personally haven't gone through to get any special offer from them in the past but i used their $2.99 coupon about 8 months ago for a where's waldo game for games for windows live achievements unfortunly it wasn't that version.

I am somewhat tempted to try the offer later in the week once my bank balance has settled somewhat better, im not finished yet as i can't seem to find myself back to the sponsorpay section and peanut labs - found it, kinda burried under special offers

i beleieve i started today with give or take 396SB now at 749SB, howveer i dont understand what people mean by saying 300/80 etc unless thats the goal, plus to earn that much daily wow :O i joined up to a load of new sites too today so i have my work cut out for me lolz

cheers everyone for codes and heads up on things and help all much welcome

ever seen those news type stories where kids have run up massive bills by buying extras in so called free games ? have you done a google search on the name of the company +scam or billing problems.

also from what i can tell from others, once you pay for one item (be a paid game or in game extra) from them you also automatically join their monthly subscription service and will be billed monthly.

You may get the equivalent of 3 (515sb) from them by joining the offer.... but what will cost you in the end ?

Personaly i never join any offer that will ever need my credit card details, and many of them do one way or another.... also avoid the wippy offer unless you want to pay almost 35 per month.

Hi TallerPaul
300/80 means the daily goal was 80 but that person did 300 instead. Surveys are a big help to the goal
I have 340/80 (120 from provide questions to answer tasks, a daily survey and PL survey, and usual games some SBTV)

oh snap that just made me remember something, if you do decide to go with their offer, login to your account after and turn off some options as far as i recall they try to charge a membership monthly fee which is optional however they just so happen to have you agreed to that option when you join, so yeah you can undo it with no future issues, i think you can use paypal for them too not sure.

cheers for other post letting me know what that meant

Urgh. Finally! Having a rubbish day on here today but just did an easy (25 mins) survey on beer and cider for 138SB from PL - first time I've managed to get through a high paying survey now on 195/80. Haven't managed a single search win today though

Ooo! I have enough to cash in if I like! I have 1245SB in total - is it worth cashing in for a 5 voucher or am I better off trying to get a higher number?

I see a lot of 5 amazon vouchers on here but I don't really use amazon much - maybe i should start! It's on offer too.. hmm.

Any suggestions on how to get the most from my SB? Sorry - not cashed in before

Although it is financially better to wait, the general consensus is to cash out as soon as you can. If anything happens (e.g. company goes under, you get your account blocked) you don't lose so much!!

The maximum I collect is 25 - it used to be a lot cheaper to save up for the higher denominations, but it doesn't make too much difference now. Amazon vouchers last a couple of years, so you can save them until Christmas. You can also get paypal vouchers if you don't use Amazon much, but you do need more SB to get them

hanb - use the phone verification instead of the postcard one. It should just take a few seconds to verify

I did this last year and did receive the SwagBucks. However, make sure you read everything carefully. I found a couple of charges to my credit card from them. It was a monthly charge of approximately 7.00 for their game club. I was able to go online and cancel the subscription but it did cost me those two months' charges. I should have picked it up after the first charge but it was around Christmas time. I can only assume there was a box which you have to un-check.
