    No it's not you. I've had loads of those too.

    I've found when submitting a ticket if you have a polite whinge, say "this is happening a lot, I don't think i'll do surveys anymore.." they tend to issue you with the credit. Done this twice recently.

    I take lots of screengrabs now.

    Occasionally taking a screengrab will disqualify you as you violate claims of "non disclosure of copyrighted images/designs" etc I've had that happen to me!

    Its unfair, survey company should cough up. They do this on Swagbucks competitor sites too.

    Apps reset 2.0 am/8.0am - bonus possible ?
    Anyone had experience of using the app re-set period between 2.0 am and 8.0am getting any multiple bonus off any of the apps,( like SBTV sometime does)


    If this is possible I may try and maximise my way to the second total .......at the moment I can just about reach the first total only during the day.


    If its only one or two bonuses on the app selected I wont bother.

    There are only 6 hours to fit the 7 apps in so probably not much time (if any) to run bonus rounds (I find the one on the main app runs unlimited rounds all day but sticks occasionally so needs keeping an eye on)

    i've had lots of bonus rounds, no bonus rounds, bare minimum & babysitting requirements on the apps between 2am & 8am, pretty much all variations. For me personally I value sleep more so occasionally I leave an app running overnight then set another off when my alarm goes & go through until I leave or 8am, but they have errored lots when left running overnight recently I think due to swagbuck app pop ups for US codes which disrupt the server connection

    I would think there probably is but you would have to start it off at 02.00 hrs and then see in the morning. I would suggest you go with your own information, i.e. for me I have had lots of bonus today on SBTV so if I was trying that's the one I would try.
    Before you do, just see how many Swagbucks you need for your second target and how much money it's going to make for you. it maybe you have a night's disturbed sleep and all for less than 50p.

    Thanks mjm3346 - understood - but I am running 1 app with a very short 10 second favourite which today has been quite kind -


    I would select this one app prior to reset and hope it could deliver on normal and repetitive bonus until 8.0am , I agree sticking can be a problem with any app.


    Thanks also to trix-a-belle and phil green - will advise further if its worth it

    no instants for me and now I've got these nCrave carrots dangling in front of me that won't load - are they for anyone else?? Could so do with them!
