That's a really good idea - find something you want and save for it. Thanks for the idea
Swagbucks has clearly caught on to my idea - the advert on the special offers page is now always Amazon and the item I want.

I just regard whatever I get as a bonus and don't bother trying for more.

Completed a PL survey, then it said they had met the quota already. Then WHY did they let me do the survey?!?

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.
Thank you, I'll remember this for next time.

I couldn't find this one either. With the casino tasks, if you don't find the website within the first few pages it's unlikely to be there. This unfortunately happens sometimes. :/

Does anyone gave any ideas / solutions please as I haven't completed any of them.
Thanks
I had the same problem. I would just refresh the page or get back to it another time, eventually I managed to fill them all in.

Had a break from swag bucks for a month or so (was slowly driving me insane chasing up uncredited surveys etc)

Seems I've missed a fair bit - can anyone tell me what a blue box is? Don't seem to remember anything like that last time I was swagging!

Just logged on. Anyone had TS 252793 for 68SB? I answered the list of cereals I buy and then got this: Thank you for your interest in participating in this survey. A survey is active for your ID. Please continue the original survey or return in 10 minutes to restart.

Looks like this one is a no go

Oh no this happened to me a while ago for a survey, I don't think it worked for me no matter how much I refreshed the page.

I've also got 1 option for the DS, but the counter thing is just spinning round and I'm wondering if I get a DS will it credit or are they still broke? EDIT: Got the 'sorry' message anyway!

This DS problem has been going on for months, I wonder when they'll sort it! My daily survey has also not been working for days . Sometimes no tick boxes appear and when they do it's only a few or one.

You probably tried this anyway...

But just in case anyone doesnt try it- I've had more success with problems on surveys when I click BACK (into your history page) rather than try to refresh.

Refresh often just regenerates the error page, Back gets you to the last page that worked.

Well, perhaps.

A second TS has also told me it has a technical fault. TS 253432. Anyone else having TS problems?

EDIT: sent error report.

Are you all on a different version of the SB site to me? i.e. the USA one? None of these codes, boxes or anything works for me. I don't get surveys much either.
