    The Fyber Stylist video is back for 6 sb on PC and another 6 on mobile (mobile one states surf the page for at least 2 mins I also do that with desktop and they both reward with no problem).

    I just did a survey on posters for the Pixar film Coco for 100SB. I put some time in to my answers because I like Pixar, but thought the posters were rubbish. I was disqualified about ten minutes in and got 1SB.

    Either you get disqualified because you say something they don't want to hear, which negates the point of a survey, they disqualify you because they got what they need but they don't want to pay you, or the survey algorithm is full of errors.

    It always seems to be Disney, which lowers my opinion of Disney to be honest. There's a few companies I'd be less likely to use after completing their terrible surveys.

    Question to MSE.

    Thanks for the offer and details. Given that some of us now seem to have received an email from Swagbucks confirming activation and some of us haven't (myself included despite clicking the link), would it be possible for MSE to now again confirm whether those who haven't should be worried for the next 5 weeks? Thanks.

    My husband and I just completed this at the same time although mine was only for 75SB. He started 10mins before me and I finished it about 2mins before him. I got disqualified and he got the 100SB. He's adament that it's because I finished it too quickly. I guess that could be the case but I read every question and answered carefully so I feel a bit cheated.

    I think it was a bit poor of swagbucks to not have some way of making it clear the link had been activated for the double points thing.
    I pressed it twice to make sure and have had no email so wondering if second click deactivated it?

    Not "worried" as such as I didnt go out of my way to earn loads extra but will be disappointed if I dont get that little boost.

    If you start doing a 60SB SSI survey about ASOS and clothing retailers, don't bother with it - the survey is broken, there is a missing text field on one of the pages asking for a recommendation out of 10, so you can never progress past this page, it's about 85% the way through the survey of course! Waste of 10-15 minutes.

    Can anyone confirm if I can cash out my points for a Mastercard then use that to pay someone, or myself directly? I was saving up to buy some nice things, but the more I think about it, the more I should probably just use the cash if it's possible.

    I'd prefer direct bank transfer, but if I can do it through Paypal without losing anything then I can live with that.

    Also from earlier

    Amazon and Mastercard for spending £5/700 sb = 140 for £1

    Mastercard self-payment £4.63/700sb = 151 for £1

    Paypal £5/800sb = 160 for £1

    Still there for me but twice today I've not received the SBs.

    First time was when I was watching a 20 for 3SB set (was about no 7 at the 8 am day switch) and at about no 18 or 19 it decided it didn't have enough memory and crashed out so that when it re-loaded I would have had to watch all the videos again.

    Second time was for 12 for 2SB and it just didn't tick off the final video. When I left that and went back in, it showed that I had watched them all but hadn't awarded the SBs.
