    Yeh sorry to be a Debbie Downer but I wonder how much we're going to have to fight to get the double SBs when no SBs appear on August 20th?! It's pretty convenient there's nothing on our accounts to show we're actually participating in the offer!

    Sigh I've had an account for the past 3 years for swag bucks and really it's never panned out. Is there really a point to the investment of time? All things considered reading a book is a self investment and I'm wondering if swagbucks is worth more. Kind Regards- John

    I guess it depends what you consider worthwhile. For some people it's worth spending half an hour a day picking up 30 SB, or whatever, and for some people it's not. Quite a lot of people here earn into the hundreds of SB a day, so that kind of amount's possible, but it depends whether you think it's a good use of your time.

    I don't know what you've achieved with it so far, but if you've got SB in your account and are looking to at least cashout and decide whether to stay, you've come here at a good time because MSE have got this offer, which is on until the end of Tuesday:
    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/deals/swagbucks#deal38397
    So you could at least earn double SB for a few days while you decide what to do!

    Out grocery shopping for a couple of hours this morning, left the mobile apps running, they were still going and earning swagbucks when I got back (same yesterday while gardening had mobile apps and toolbar TV or watch running) flicked down the To Do list just now and got a 22 SB search win from the daily search and almost at the daily goal with no more than 7 mins of my time - last 3 days have made 450, 512 and 448 that's worth £10 Amazon and almost all of it is eligible for the MSE "double" so that should be another £10 and there will be another 121 SB from the daily 2nd target bonus for those 3 days.

    I don't normally push it that hard, the first daily goal is easy to reach if the mobile apps run properly and that's worth up to £25 a month for very little effort and there are usually bits and pieces such as a swago, big SB search wins, instant surveys etc that push it up to £40 - £50 with very little effort.

    Started a gold survey (#4832909) worth 175SBs on movies, it was asking about Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxay, etc. Have spent about 15 minutes answering questions only to be told "unfortunately you do not qualify"

    It always seems to be the movie surveys that kick me out after I've spent ages answering questions.

    I am now getting used to the 'win some, you lose' some attitude you have to have to survey's but this one really irritated me because of the time I had already invested. I was thinking "finally, I am going to get swagbucks for a survey I actually enjoy!"

    If that was a survey on a page called something like dmsurvey.ugamsolutions.com I ditched that right away. I have fallen for that so many times, they ask loads and loads of stuff far more than could ever be called screening and they ALWAYS kick me off stating DNQ. As soon as I see one of their surveys I close it right off now unless its on PL where I state I have done surveys in all the categories listed so I get the disqualification SB.

    Same happened with me with the movie survey. Glutton for punishment because I've had that happen before with those same movie surveys. It was just worth too much to pass up on.

    I read this post, and went to do some Gifthulk surveys (I almost always close them if I don't get the DQ coins after the first half dozen questions as I can never really be bothered to do the actual surveys). One survey was about Star Wars/GOTG (didn't connect it to what you said about the survey you did) and didn't DQ me immediately, so I answered the questions thinking it would complete. Turns out it must have been the same survey because I got kicked out after 10/15 minutes too

    Same thing happened to me - wish I'd checked this thread before I started swagging tonight.

    Has anyone else got low (but getable) first targets (88) and high (250) second ones?

    88 is the standard first target today, the second varies considerably (mine is a no chance 390)

    Can these Fyber offers be completed more than once?

    The one that credited me twice today seems to go to the same page as it's done the last couple of days, but I think they changed the title at Fyber (and maybe the ad ID?) so I wonder if that enabled us to be credited again.

    Actually, just been credited twice again today. Maybe worth clicking again then a few hours later!

    Been burnt twice by this particular survey. 15 mins spent answering questions on a bunch of movie franchises I like, then kicked out once it started asking about what movie merchandise we had bought for our daughter.

    Sorry, we didn't buy her any merchandise from the Fast & Furious franchise as "professional car thief" isn't a career path we'd want her to aspire to. And if it was, then surely we'd be encouraging her to steal the merchandise instead?
