    Totally frustrating - Ford ads hang up every time requiring manual closure - the very day I needed them to work ! - impossible to get my first target if there are no surveys -is it the same for everyone ?

    squeezing-blood-from-a-stone Saturday. Watch videos need to be manually clicked or they don't play or move forward, no ads on EngagemeTV again (yesterday was fine), yawn

    Couldn't sleep last night so ended up staying up until 4am, left EngageMe.TV running on the PC when I went to bed. Got up this morning to find that Discover has been ticked off my to do list already, it must have kept running a few hours as it's earned 7SB since 8am and I've only just got up, not sure how many it earned up until 8am but it looks like quite a few!

    Instant Survey on pensions. Said it pays 17SB, but the survey paid for every correct answer you gave about the product, so I got 68 SB.

    I was beginning to think that there was a conspiracy against me at Swagbucks, but apparently not.

    I restarted Swagbucks on 21st January 2017 after a long absence and I've just had my first instant survey!!!!

    I had to share and to say thanks to all for your help and advice!!

    My EngageMe.tv, on Chrome, has been running happily in the background most of the day and has earned me 41SB so far, meaning that I met my second target even without any surveys. It needs checking on occasionally (it will ask, plaintively, "Are you still watching?" after a few hours) and if you've nothing else much to do you can skip instantly from app trailer to app trailer until the next ad appears. It's really behaving very well for me at the moment.

    (Let's hope it doesn't read this and take a scunner to me.)
