    It would be worth registering today, as if you have time you could earn 250 points, and it would then reset on Sunday night..so you could restart over for the week after.

    If you start on Monday you will have to wait till next week to get more then 250 points :-)

    Im not bothering to do it today as I've been all out day and am absolutely knackered, i'm staying up to do my swagbucks and then i'm heading to bed for a 14 hour sleep

  • I signed up to this today and got the 250 already. It only took me about an hour to get to the weekly 250, and I got the 250 bonus sitting there as well. It says I just need to wait until it credits tonight, so will see what happens. It does seem to be a good site so far though!

    I try to do this every week but seems harder to get to the 250 each week but hey, anything is a bonus :)

    I've just signed up :)

    Need to remember to actually watch the videos and click on the little "yes I'm still watching" prompts

    I think you have 12 months to spend them.##

    But if you have 5 on at the same time, how do not miss some "yes I'm still watching" prompts?

    what i do is open them in different tabs and flick between them. the "yes I'm still watching" come up at the same time depending on the length of the video. so a 30sec video it always come up at 15sec. and a 1min video at 20 and again at 40sec. you start to get the free for it but you have to be fast. but i do miss one now and then but its still faster.

    Thanks OP :) I signed up tonight and have already reached 250, plus will get the signing up bonus.

    I muted the ads and listened to Youtube on the headphones. There's only so many times I can learn to make Yorkshire puddings so this helped to pass the time a lot!

    Ignore me I just googled- think I'm mistaken.

    This just says you need to use the card in a 12 month period or you lose the points.

    So as long as you keep collecting that'll keep you active and they won't expire I think.

    Heard a story not so long ago where someone had been saving up all their Sainsburys nectar points for Christmas, but then their card got pinched and all the money was spent. A nectar card has no security or anything, so if someone gets hold of it, they can spend any stored points.

    I generally spend points in Sainsburys as soon as they reach the threshold. (You could then put the cash you've thereby saved into a piggy bank if you want to save up the adpoints for a special treat.)

    But if you don't carry your nectar card about with you, I guess it should be safe enough.
