    Instant for 8SB on riding motor bikes.


    Shame one of the options was not "It's too expensive to take the bike test!".

    Thanks. Saved me time trying myself! I did one yesterday just on the off chance and it credited so I thought they had fixed it, but tried the next one and that didn't credit so I guess I'll give them another week and try it then. Their surveys take to long to be not credited, it really is a !!!!-take.

    Edit - I just realised I had a few Toluna survey back-payments overnight too. A nice surprise, but I hope everything is back to normal - it still feels uncertain to do a string of surveys and not receive payment for a couple of weeks.

    Yes, I always do the same, and it does work. For instance, yesterday afternoon (yes, after all the extra 70SB payments came in) I was doing a Toluna survey, got to the end, got thanked, and then got offered another survey. Now, that's almost always a situation in which you'll find that the first one doesn't get credited, and sure enough once I was DQd from the second one I checked and there were no SBs from the first. Put in a ticket, with the screenshot; got an autoresponse; replied to it with all the information asked for (which was in my original ticket, but an autoresponse doesn't know that) and was credited overnight.

    It is absolutely crucial to reply to the autoresponse, or the system assumes that you are happy with that reply!

    Discover --> KiwiWall --> 7796_Facility Managers/Office Managers (8967) --> 340 SB

    This survey took me around 20 minutes, but worth the 340 SB. Read the instructions and remember the answers you're providing as to how many taps you need. They are asking about this several times to make sure you answer genuinely.
    Also suggest you say the business has a brand new office space with full refurbishment with excellent accessibility when asked - it seems to made the survey path shorter. Hope this helps.

    I'm seriously considering to calling it a day. I've been receiving the same standard reply from sb every day regarding the missing Watch and if they don't fix it by the time I'm onto my next voucher that's me stopping wasting my time. It's fine if you can make the bonuses but without there's no point.

    Been out most of the day and thought it might be a bit of a struggle but F3551058 paid 100 SB for about 3 mins instead of the 9 it said it would take (it was a follow up election survey)

    Discover --> Kiwi Wall --> WO7981_UK_HHI $50k+_(8140) --> 68 SB.

    Very easy survey, took me less than 10 minutes. Pay attention to the instructions, the screen will kick you out if you provide short answers that don't make sense, so I just dedicated a few seconds to write a 1 sentence answer whenever it was required, not too many times to be honest, worked like a charm. Easy 68 SB.

    Why not just take a break and spend more time on other sites? They did eventually fix the ncrave issue, can't remember how long it took.

    I recently signed up and thanks to the excellent guide linked at the start of this thread I'm 3 days in and already have enough SB to redeem the lowest level of reward (3GBP Amazon gift card). I can't believe I ignored this for so long!

    I'm really enjoying the site, but I have a couple of stupid newbie questions I'm hoping someone has the patience to answer:

    - I read somewhere that us folk here in the UK have to redeem via postcard or something for our first claim. Not sure how that works. Should I go ahead and redeem now for a small reward to get this postcard business over with, rather than wait until I try to cash out loads of SB?

    - PayPal rewards. I'm not sure how these work. I have PayPal but never really used it much except for an occasional payment that was deducted direct from my bank account, so I can't see the benefit of getting a PayPal balance boost. I could see it being useful if I could transfer the PayPal balance back into my bank account. Is that possible?

    - Discover awards for downloading/running Android apps. There's a bunch of these that supposedly award various amounts of SB (15-30). I've downloaded and run a bunch but only been credited for 2. Is this one of the areas of the site that's a bit flakey and best not to rely on?

    Sorry for the wall of questions, but I'm just really chuffed with how well I've done thanks to the advice in this thread and want to make sure I'm getting the most bang for my SB.

    Hi - re the postcard thing - I signed up about a month ago to SBs and left off redeeming my first gift card (decided Amazon £5 for 700 a better deal than PayPal £5 for 800 for me) - and then realised about the postcard thing....

    I reckon it took 5-6 days to get here from the USA.

    I am also curious about the Discover for downloading apps so thank you for asking the question.

    Thanks to everyone on this thread and the codes thread for all help.
