    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...

    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.

    I use Opinion Outpost instead of Nectar. They are both exactly the same as far as I can tell, except with Opinion Outpost you can redeem the points instantly for a gift certificate/paypal . The amount they pay isn't always great but you do occasionally get diary projects for £5+

    53 sb for 25 mins, I don't think so! But as long as enough people do them they do not need to offer more.


    I now run the 6 mobile apps for 60 sb as they generally can just run until each one is finished. Swag run/jump game for 10, about 10 for bits on the todolist/swag codes plus survey dqs and 10 or more from search = 90sb plus. If I need more than that for the first target I do a bit of toolbar tv or watch videos but I don't bother if I have already reached it (unless the next reward is really close).

    My daily goal keeps being raised, despite me not having met it for a week. What's all that about??

    Also, keep getting kicked out of surveys. Having said that, I've just earned enough for my second gift card (£5) since start of February, so not too bad I suppose for something I just dip in and out of.

    Except in the very early days of participation, the first goal is the same for everyone so it doesn't make a difference whether you have been meeting it. It is only the second goal which is more individually decided based on your previous achievements.

    From what I have worked out in the past the targets work on a rolling 2 weeks. If you make your 2nd target all the time, even if it is by 1 SB it will continue to rise.

    As others have said 1st target is same for everyone once you move past the 40 SB per day. Leave it for 3 to 4 weeks and your 1st target will revert back to 40 SB.

    All of this has been said many times before. It's down to individuals what they wish to do, but it's ALWAYS like this in the early part of the year. Try not to get too upset about it! It will all even out in a few months and you'll have more surveys than you can shake a stick at.

    Personally I'm generally finding the site better than ever, despite the slow time of year. I've been able to meet my 1st target with very little effort almost every day. There's just 1 or 2 days a month, like today where I'm struggling a little due to the lack of surveys and apps not working properly. I'm still about 30 off of 1st target. But the apps will probably get me there in the end, if they don't- oh well, not much lost.

    Just For Fun on Discover is still crediting at 50SB not the 10 it is listed at. That's the difference between me hitting my first Daily Target and not. Only qualified for 1 survey today and my first Daily Goal was 115, wouldn't usually have bothered but already have hit the first 12 days target so only need to hit target 2 more days running for the 14 day bonus - miniscule as it is!
