    Please can I gently & politely ask that people save posting Search wins until they have something else to post. It causes potentially thousands of members to visit the website each time. Search wins are actually random, so whilst it may be fun for some to share a win, it just takes up thread space and wastes time for those not interest.

I don't sit and wait or click ahead, I get on with life while it's doing its thing, so don't know what the ratio of ads to videos was.

    0.1 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.7 0.8 for the 6 adverts. Has done this for as long as I can remember.

    You notice niff naff like this when you have worked with numbers most of your life.

    The Entertainment EngageMe tv seems to be paying out quite easily this morning - only appears to be needing 0.8 Swagbucks again on the counter to trigger a SB reward. The ads seem plentiful too at the minute - hope that is the case for everyone so it ticks off the Discover on the Daily task list x

    Only just noticed the above comments - hope that was only on the other choices of Engageme TV

    Anyone else finding it more and more difficult to get the 5 disqualification SBs? It seems that more and more surveys which supposedly do award them are instead routing me to a generic end survey screen and staying there instead of going back to the Gold Surveys page and awarding the single SB for being DQed.

    Even on PL I sometimes have to try 3 or 4 in a row before the 1 sb gets awarded. They are Nectar Surveys I believe (which coincidentally pay much better on Nectar)

    Is the effort Worth IT?
    Not sure if anyone has thought about this or not. We are all getting a bid fed up with the reduction in value of everything so why not do something about it. Is 15 or 20 minutes of your time worth 39 SB?

    Most people are forced to attempt these surveys to try and reach their daily targets to get a bonus of 300 SB which if you buy one of the 620 SB gift cards is all of about £2.45.

    Therefore why not stop doing them?

    If enough people boycott them then Swagbucks might figure out they are going wrong somewhere!

    Just do enough that you are happy for the reward that you get for the time expended.

    I stopped chasing the bonus a couple of months ago. I could not see the point of spend 2 hours to get about a £1 on some days.

    I'm inclined to agree. I was, until recently, able to reach the second daily goal with a tiny bit of effort. Not any more. It's just not as good value any more and I'm feeling less inclined to waste my time on it now...

    Now if we had something like that every day I'd be very happy...

    Nectar surveys seem to be done by Valued Opinions, which pays much better still. For example I just clicked on a 15 minute Nectar survey for 60 points (30p) but the same 15 minute survey would be worth 75p on VO.
