    I wondered about those. Do they just get credited to a Mastercard credit card that you nominate? I use one regularly (it gives me Nectar points ) ...

    Thank you both

    £10 Amazon is showing as 1360 points. And £10 Mastercard is showing as 1440 points. But I have a £60 Amazon card coming up soon from an mse thing with Three that Martin cooked up, and I don't want to make extra purchases just because I have a gift card. I'm tempted to go for the Mastercard thing. And I have 1356 points, so it will be soon

    The Mastercard's are valid for a year, so you don't have to spend them straight away.
    And two £5 ones add up to 1400.

    Amazon giftcards are valid 10 years so there is no need to rush to spend them.

    Whatever you go for leave it towards the end of "spin and win" in case you get any swagups from that and you can use it at the same time as marking the swago square off.


    The giftcard prices vary a bit even within the same type of card some of them are - £10 best value Amazon, £5 best Mastercard and anything except £5 for M&S

    £5 Amazon 720, £10 1360, £25 3600, £50 7200, £100 14400
    £5 Mark&S 720, £10 1360, £25 3400, £50 6800, £100 13600
    £5 Mastcrd 700, £10 1440, £25 3600, £50 7200, £100 14400

    Debenhams and John Lewis £10 to £50 are the same cost per £ and the same as M&S

    Paypal works out to 800 bucks per £5 whatever value

    I couldn't get any ads on engagemetv but RadiumOne has an offer for 1SB for connecting with FB (it was a swagbucks type site cannot remember what it was called) - I wouldn't normally bother just for the to do list but as complete list marks off a swago square and gets 10 spins I took it and it credited straight away.

    To Do
    is 1 and 6

    Have they done away with the dreaded 3 SB search "wins"? I had 5 of them at the weekend, but all my wins yesterday and today have been for 5 or 7 SB.

    I suspect the 5 and 7 might have been higher amounts before the appearance of the "3" - I average around 25 SB a day from search - Totals of 9 and 17 over the last 2 days mean today needs to be 49 to bring the 3 days up to average (the daily totals do vary a lot but a couple of week should be enough to tell if there is a reduction in addition to appearance the "3".)

    I was doing a "try to complete a survey" for the daily tasks thing, and ended up at a survey on behalf of the NHS, which credited me instantly but also told me I was disqualified, *and* gave me a bonus of 30p for answering 3 questions in the survey correctly! The bonus was a little Amazon voucher, which I've now applied to my account!
