    Also getting the 'engage isn't available in your country' page.

    The masterminds at engage must've gone to the same schools as the ones at SB itself!

    Played off all my Spin and Win spins (44 of them) this morning before attempting today's goal... and hit the jackpot, 2500SB prize!

    Couldn't believe it. The odds must be so slim. So that's around 20 Amazon before the day's even started (I took screenshots, but don't know how / if these can be uploaded).

    Over all, was really quite lucky.

    1 x 2500SB win
    around 4 Double SB on next Survey
    a few 5 SB wins, a few more 2 SB and 1 SB wins
    and a 50 SB rebate on next SB redeem
    Oh and lots of 25 entries in to Swagstakes.

    I know this has been covered before, however I can't find it. Just regarding the MasterCard one click; it is a better rate than Paypal obviously and I want to use my points to pay for groceries. Does anybody know if the MC can be used to pay for say a Sainsburys online shop?
    Many thanks.

    In theory, yes.

    But once you've got the card, it's only got the value you've redeemed on it, and you can't top it up. So if you've ordered a 5 card, that's 5. You would either need to order a large enough card to cover the whole of your shopping (which would be a hell of a lot of Swagbucks, and I wouldn't recommend saving them up that high) or Sainsburys would have to accept part payment, and I'm not sure they would.

    I pay my O2 phone bill with mine, as they accept online part payments. If you've got any bills that can be paid online you should be able to use the Mastercard. People have previously posted that they've done Virgin Media or BT etc.

    I also think that you can add the Mastercard to Paypal, and then use that to pay for your purchases (ie eBay items). You'd only be able to use it for the 5 amount, though.

    I part pay my EDF electricity bills online with 5 Mastercards. EDF takes anything over a pound on one, so you could get a bigger card, pay the order size and use the one pound plus to pay off a part payable bill.

    Thank you for your post, it saved me a lot of trouble blaming my isp and going through a malaware scan etc.

    Thank you to all for such helpful posts, it's much appreciated.

    You don't get the full 5 for that, from memory of previous posts you lose 20 p per card and somewhere between 3 and 4% as well.

    (At the moment 5 Mastercards are almost 13% more expensive than Amazon or M&S ones)
