    Start a new account?

    I'm going to carry on doing what I'm doing until they ban me. I've never bent the rules, but it seems like it can happen to anyone if there's a discrepancy in some of your answers. I've personally moved house since I started Swagbucking and I've gone up a pay band so I'm sure that might be flagged at some point.

    When you look at the high earners, they're making an impossible about of SBs to the point where they're either cheating, or they're just dumping large amounts of their own money into offers and losing out in the long run.

If you consistently answer that way every time regardless then it can't flag you up and you'll lose out on very little, not many things require you to be childless and in a low responsibilty job.

    I've got the not so lovely message. It seems surveys aren't for you!

    I'm gutted and so fed up.

    Consider it a blessing, I got the same message a few months ago and have since focused my survey efforts on other sites which pay far better.

    Also even when you're "banned" you can still do the instant surveys, which are the only SB surveys worth doing anyway.

    Is there any easy Discover today? Engagemtv is still not working and tripping didn't credit. Can's see anything else....

    There's a shoes one on the home page. It's for 1015SB but it's 15SB for answering a very short quiz on their site and 1000SB for buying the shoes. I really don't recommend buying the shoes as it is a subscription thing but the quiz is very fast, free and pays immediately. You do have to put in an email address and maybe another few details but you don't need to be able to confirm any of it.

    Tripping is a good and easy tick of the box afdter clicking on booking.com. I had it most days either in OfferToro, Radium one (that did not credit occasionally) and Revenue Universe.

    I disagree, I've been on SB since 2012 and I don't lie in my survey answers. I'm childless and not in a high-powered job and I get loads of surveys. Enough to make my first target anyway, I'm not greedy.

    If you try to push hard on SB it will backfire on you - you can't do all the surveys every day. Do 1 or 2 and leave yourself some for the next day, and the day after that. Or, you'll be lying to get surveys and they WILL find out.

    There will always be slow days, mostly Sundays and after holidays or bank holidays. That's just life, then you either forgo first target or slog it out on the apps and offers. As you can see from my signature, I've made over £2K from SB and the majority of that is from surveys. I don't waste my time on other aspects of the site, as the pay off is too poor.

    After playing up earlier The "Howto" videos on engagemetv just worked for me (I did let the videos play without fast forwarding them, I don't know if that made a difference or they have simply fixed it)

    I saw a survey review once where the guy was saying he got his account closed due to different phrasing of questions producing different answers.

    Perhaps asking Swagbucks for an explanation will give an opportunity to clear things up, not that asking them for anything is ever a pleasant task?

    The vast majority of the surveys are not worth the bother compared with doing them direct, without even counting the fail to pays and screenouts when almost complete.

    Swagbucks has paid me about £800, top earners are Mobilewatch/Toolbar tv with £210, survey completes £160 searching £100, monthly bonuses/spin and wins £95, ncrave £65 and bits from games, swagcodes, discover etc.

    I also have around £4,000 from survey sites directly and nearly £19,000 from competition wins, I haven't been doing swagbucks as long but it's going to have to go some to catch up.

    EngagemeTV has now stopped working for me, it keeps resetting itself to 1 of 6 and even if it makes it to anything above 8 on the right counter it doesn't credit. Tripping also didn't credit today nor tick the box.
