    That's annoying. I'm going to leave things like the daily crave, discovery and the poll until they sort it out.

    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)

    Thanks for mentioning your activity is not updating, I've just noticed mine's the same.

    I wish I'd read this before going to SBs this morning. I just cashed in for a gift voucher and the points have been deducted from my total but not listed in my activity and not showing up as a gift card ordered. It'll most probably sort out when the systems catch up but anyone else might like to wait before cashing in until things are working just in case.

    I'm giving the apps a go until they sort it out and not quite sure if I'm doing it right.

    I'm just leaving one of them running but all I'm getting is a string of those ncrave type webpages (about football I think) with a message at the top to wait 40 seconds, after which it moves on to another one. I thought they were going to be videos. Not sure how many it's gone through, but it hasn't credited yet. Is this how the apps are now?

    watch out for the survey about women's football (says 9 but took 15), screening out questions after completion , waste of time - but so is probably everything I've done this morning, just read your previous posts....

    The activity page seems to be catching up a bit. I have activity from today now, but still a bit behind.

    Got "watch" to tick off with a video group from the swagbucks page, before trying that I closed and restarted the main mobile app to see if that would work, it didn't but on the restart the 40 sec ads I had been getting were gone.


    (Now only need discover for the full list but won't bother with that before swago goes live)

    I've always thought its one of those things that can't be done

    Glad the activity has sorted itself out, I ran most of the apps before 8 this morning so was worrying they wouldn't work today.

    Much like the apps on the phone, is there any way to earn SB consistently online?

    Watch makes my computer want to self combust. Engage is a bit hit and miss for me.

    has anyone done the recent shopalong assignment via surveys? I did the final survey but didn't receive my 2000sb.

    put a ticket in and got the generic response. also emailed shopalong too
    SPC#364 - 7-£666.54, 8-£489, 9-£264 10-£376
    SPC 11 - target £200

    Swaggers - 2015/£285, 2016/£270 2017 - target £300 (total so far £355 17/11/2017)

    I use the 7 mobile apps but the only PC one I run is toolbar tv as that can be in its small window at the side while I am using the PC and I can flick it along if I notice there is a long video, total was only 18 sb today but with the mobile ones and swag run that's the daily goal with minimum effort. (I generally only use engage for 1SB to mark off the to do list in case I get the rest on there)
