    Depends on the agreement and how legitimate it was, potentially "failed payment" charges on top of the amount originally due, late/non payment reporting to credit reference agencies, threatening letters, visits from debt collectors (not bailiffs at that point) and ultimately court action - If it was a dodgy agreement then maybe threatening letters for a while or just nothing.

    Apps are pretty much useless again.

    In case anybody hasn't found out the ads seem to almost disappear in the evenings and the apps then run. Don't know, how long does it take to let them go through the full set mostly unaided?

    Maybe my phones failing. As I say, they run fine in the evenings and as I wake in the middle of the night these days, I run a few then as well.

    It's not your phone. I've been having the same problem with the apps the last few days. SBTV and Indymusic, which are on an older phone, run through without any problems. The other 5 apps have the 40 sec ads, which slows your earning down to about 4 SB an hour. Then in the evening, the ads disappear.

    Survey 35316867 is about your alcohol drinking habits. You're then directed to a site called Rooftop View, which is like YouGov for alcohol. No redirection back to Swagbucks, no SB, no nothing.

    Put in a ticket. Not holding my breath.

    It sounds like one of those community forums. After you joined, did you confirm your email address, that often is the trigger for the points being added, either that or making a post or two - just an introductory hello so they know you're not a bot. I have had these kind of things not credit before though, but sometimes they do - it's pot luck like all the surveys really, but worth posting and checking your email in case

    Thank you, I've been trying all sorts these last few days with the apps not running properly. I've been thinking my phone's on the blink, switching it on and off, clearing the cache, trying everything I could think of. After reading the posts I've just tried running them and they're running fine with no problems.

    Thank you to all who mentioned the problem, I never thought of trying at a different time of day.

    Got my last collectors bill at 07:59.
    Managed to complete the set for the first time ever

    On another note, my activity seems to have stopped updating this morning and is showing nothing I've done after I ran my first app when I got up (total still updating though)

    Congrats on the collectors bills! Did you run your first app before 8am when the new Swagbucks day starts? If so your sb will be added to yesterday's total.

    yep! - same here ! - bit worrying - I track my progress relying in this and what best to attack next - I hope the points keep accrediting overall and showing up........


    P.S the to do list had also remained fully ticked when the new day had started - with no input - but new input on it appears to register on overall totals.
