    It seems unfair to include Daily Crave on the To Do list when so many of us can't get it.

    To-Do List 1 Step From Complete Bonus 2 SB
    To-Do List Bonus 7 SB

    I have to use a combination of Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer to get the various watch, ncrave and Engageme.tv to work.
    I find that Engageme.tv can be quite slow to start but if I leave it running in the background in Chrome for a few hours it gets going after a couple of hours then it has ads every couple of clips.

    Watch awesome food videos and earn for every ad you watch! Your points will be fully credited every 6 ad watches.

    It used to be that we would always ignore the adds to get our reward so now they have done it in such a way we have to watch the adds!

    Not exactly a disqualification, and I ignored it till I got the same message the next day. I don't fast forward through engageme.tv anymore.

    Just got 95% through a survey only to be screened out!!
    It was about electric vehicles. I've contacted swagbucks. Not happy!

    What annoys me is there's hardly ever a discover offer to complete it. They suggested we should use content discovery, but they're all Offer Toro and they never work for me or they say I've already completed them when I haven't. They also never refresh on Swagbucks, whereas on other sites I can do those offers daily through Offer Toro (if desired).

    Has anyone figured out if EngagemeTV shows the ads at a particular time of day? It works for me usually before 11 a.m and then again after 5 p.m. Is that similar for anyone else?

    On the Discover tab selected 5 minute fun for kids (or something like that) you have to put in an email address, but imagine anything in the correct format would work.

    It was supposed to credit 10SB, but credited 50SB, and took me to my target. Happy days.

    I see the bonus for the daily goals today has been reduced by 12.5 and 14.3% (8 to 7 for the first then 14 to 12sb for my second target)

    Nope. The daily poll isn't based on the date setting on your computer but the server-side date setting. This type of thing if possible would also be against the site T&Cs.
