Has anyone here ever won any of the competitions Swagbucks link to? Are they real prizes or just a method of harvesting our contact details?

Nope, I don't think any of it is real unless the competition was done on legit websites/brands/companies we know of.

Is there some significance to the search term that wins you the swagbucks? I can see people posting what they won for, and some people winning for the same keywords. I assumed the keyword itself was irrelevant, you just occasionally win on a search? Am I wrong?

I think the wins themselves are random, but there's a time window for which the phrase/elements of the phrase could win SB. I might be wrong though.

Speaking of which, I just got 9sb for Kurt Geiger.

Absolutely no significance. Search wins are not related to what you 'search' for. There are 'award windows' 3 or 4 times a day. You can type anything and still stand the same chance of a SB search win. I find that if a few searches are yielding nothing, chances are if I do something else on the site (play a few rounds of games, or a DS/TS) then try search again, I'm more likely to gain a search reward. I frequently get a search win just after 8am (the new 'SB day'), one around noon, one mid-afternoon and one in the evening. It matters not one jot what you type in the search box.

I have noticed that the wins have been decreased - a few months ago I was getting a 59 SB seach win once or twice a week, and a 29 SB win every couple of days. For a while now, I'm getting 6 SB or 7 SB wins max, with a pretty rare 12 SB win every couple of days.

50SB TS on electricity companies. Took around 10 minutes for me to provide genuine thought out answers (in between playing the Xbox 360). Was worth popping SB open while doing so
11,191.52 earned so far this year - all earned sitting at home

I'm a blogger and a stay-at-home wife.

I did that one Katy Kicker. It gave me great pleasure to say exactly what I thought of Npower. They're one of the major reasons I've had to resort to Swagbucks and the like I detest them
