I've just spent ages doing a DS (they are finally coming through) and it hasn't credited! I don't believe it. It was about buying cars. Has anyone ahd this happen then have it credit later or are the points lost for good?

I've had loads of things I've not been credited for last couple of days but all offers. This is the first time I've not been credited for a daily survey. Anyone know how to submit a ticket for DS can't find the link.

I tried these earlier haven't had any problems with but today they wouldn't go on the webpage just linked to the crowdflower error page

Usually when you get on the webpage it says about clicking on the blog link such as online casino and then scroll down and click on the tweet button.

Thank you! I had the error thing as well and maybe the Tweet buttons did not appear because I wasn't logged in or something for the blogs that did appear.

When you click 'Answer' on the Swag Bucks home page, click 'Tasks'. The casino tasks are worth 4 SB and are usually named as follows:

'Answer a few questions about a website (United Kingdom - Wednesday task #33) (UK Only)'

The mobile phone casino tasks are worth 12 SB.

The casino tasks in my opinion are the only tasks worth doing because they don't take long to do. Once you are used to the format, these tasks are very easy. When you have completed 5 of these tasks (20 SB) the SB are credited onto your account.

With the Twitter tasks, the address is formatted wrong, it loops through crowdflower and gets stuck. But the right address is contained within the link so you can just copy paste and get rid of the crowdflower bit.

It's the right blog post because it says the title on the task.

They're probably gone now, but if it happens again thought this might be useful.

With the casino tasks, which search result is correct for the term 'best online slots'? I can't seem to find the one they are describing.

Cheers

Whenever I try to fill out my profile chunks on the SB site I get to the end of the section, select submit and get a message in red at the bottom saying: Something went wrong. Please refresh your page & try again.

Or it says something's missing and to try again. I've tried a few different ones but always get an error then when I go back and check I don't think there's anything else to do.

Does anyone gave any ideas / solutions please as I haven't completed any of them.
Thanks

Well done how long do you think it will take to get it?

That's a really good idea - find something you want and save for it. Thanks for the idea

Ive not completed any of mine either always says there is an error so I have given up as I am not sure it makes any difference. I get surveys and you are asked those questions before you are accepted for a survey or not.

I would like to do them as they are 2SB each, but its just not worth the hassle.

I had two that did that, and I waited about an hour and went back to them and they completed just fine. Might just be a kink in their system. If you still can't do them by tonight or so, you might want to send them a ticket.
