    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.

    Thank you. I didn't even need to tick off discover today, just thought I would complete it incase it disappears.

    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.

    Biggest win was an ITV competition then there have been several others into 4 figures, over 20 between £100 and £999 and 500 plus smaller ones - Cash/vouchers account for well over half the total and apart from a fitness tracker watch (don't remember entering the competition) all the physical prizes have been useful ones.

    I just had a little suprise.

    Other: EntertaiNow 50 SB Bonus

    Anyone else has this? I checked with my referral but they didn't have it.
    The only 50 swagup on the spin & win was for a giftcard purchase

    My husband's account didn't receive it - I checked.

    The difference between our accounts is that mine does not gain SB from EntertainNow on the mobile phone but my husband's does. Perhaps it's an incentive to download EntertainNow? I would but my phone can't run it..

    But two swagbucks accounts on one phone? Does anyone here do this?

    Aren't they likely to flag your account as someone with two accounts and ban both accounts?

    Otherwise, in theory Bobbybun could run the mobile apps every day on OH phone after he's run them-potentially for another 140SB per day.

    I got the 50 SB from entertain now by watching videos from my tablet not my mobile phone. I had no idea I had a swagup until I suddenly got the extra points. It does not count towards the daily total unfortunately.

We share a computer here, we each sign in/out of our accounts when we have done what we are going to and if the other person is free and in the mood they would sign in and use it. I really can't see a problem with it.We aren't doing it at simultaneously just using the same hardware consecutively.

    to run 2 double loads of phone apps consecutively would take some doing - timewise, but yes I would think it would be okay with SB.

    As you say, many people share a pc.But video watch optons on the pc arent limited really. You wouldn't gain much in being able to watch more videos on the pc by having multiple accounts. They say you are limited to earning 500SB per day on watch, but cant say Ive ever managed that.

    Apps are more strict. 10SB per app twice a day. But with two accounts the phone is earning up to 280 SB per day. Suspicious? They ban people for suspicious behaviour.

    However, nothing in rules against sharing a phone, so probably fine I guess.
