Bad day. Been chucked out of 7 DS and 3 PL plus had 2 PL that wouldn't work properly. 2 SP offers not tracked. Stuck on 50. Slowly losing the will to live

On top of that valued opinons and my surveys have both chucked me out of a survey and I've had 10p on one poll all day

Goes into corner and cries quietly

Pulled myself together, took a deep breath and forced myself to have one last try at DS. Got a short and quick one on price comparison websites actually finished it and it credited.

123/90. Hit goal every day so far this month and aiming for 14 in a row. 3 days to go. If I manage the 14 might try for 21. Do the targets get harder to hit towards hte end of the month by any chance?

I created an email address specifically for sites like this and also ordered a free sim on special offers so I can put that in as my contact number to try and avoid getting too much spam.

Is anyone else having issues with their survey dashboard? Eg, clicking through to a survey, then being directed back to the dashboard?

6 SB for searching 'the most heartfelt speech'. Such a shame that now you only seem to get 5-7 SB for a search at most, rarely more.

Yes I have the same issue for a 85 SB survey that is stuck on my survey dashboard. I reported this and they just gave me 10 SB out of courtesy or something.

I get an awful lot of spam when it comes to Swagbucks. I made the mistake last time of using an important e-mail address which now has thousands of e-mails purely spam but now I use a separate e-mail address just for Swagbucks.

Yeah I had to do 50 songs one time as well. :/ I feel the longer you are on this website, the harder it gets to get SB (for me anyway).

I think some days it's quite simple to hit the targets and some days it's just really difficult. It really depends. :/

Cool, thanks. At least it's not just me! My last 10SB are proving the hardest to get so I'll come back to it later, hopefully there'll be some fresh surveys that I qualify for.

Think you are right I am getting surveys but I am a newbie, I'm not expecting it to last, they have to make it easyish for us newbies to keep us interested. How long have you been on the site? Can you remember how long it was before things got harder? I am trying to take advantage of my newbie status whist I can

have you done the games? you can get 10 for that. Also its not too bad getting 10 by watching the tv, if it comes to the worst.
