    Had 2 good days on SB, now it's reverted to being sh** again. My cheapo android phone can't handle the ads and crashes.

    Even nCrave is awful today.

    Gotten back into swagbucks over Christmas, had a good first week but only earned about 100sb since the new year. Can't use watch at the moment as we don't have broadband so limited data wise and not having much luck with surveys recently.

    Cheers for the new thread Mjm

    I'm determined to try and get both first and second goals this month.
    Today is testing everyone's patience, so many gremlins at work

    I've been having problems recently with Chrome and some surveys where they ask you to pick boxes (sometimes drag them, you know the kind). The ability to drag/drop/choose the boxes doesn't work and it means I have to abandon the survey. It's not every survey with this kind of thing on it, but enough that it's becoming an annoyance.

    I thought it might be something to do with Adobe Flash, but I'm up to date with that and have allowed it. I'm only guessing, I don't know that it's flash, it might not be - just wondered if anyone had any ideas because it's driving me nuts - especially at a time like this week where every survey counts because there are so few around.

    EDIT - Just on the off chance, I tried using the touch screen (I recently got a new laptop with a touch screen and my old one didn't have one) - and it WORKED!
    So I'll leave this moan here in case anyone else finds the post and wonders why these type of pages don't work - maybe they have a touchscreen that is interferring with the survey code. Phew!

    The swagcode is followed to a link to the survey page showing a whole bunch of surveys.

    I would suggest avoiding 17796492 25sb for 5mins, it starts out saying it'll be 10mins then goes into a bunch of questions about how you recieve newly released movies then disqualified me because I hadn't seen the likes of Wonder Woman and Despicable me 3

    hmm seems to be a pretty poor for the year for me and other people:

    Apps with these long adverts are pretty much useless
    EngageMe.tv hasn't been crediting at all for the last week
    Encrave content need manually clicking the next page rather than automatically moving to the next one
    Some of the videos on the toolbar are over twenty minutes long so letting that run by itself is a waste of time

    thanks for the new thread. No ncrave here either

    I swear they deliberately have at least one very poor day a month to break target streaks

    I always use incognito in chrome for ascend media videos and so far it has always paid after the 6 ads (I rarely play for more than 1sb) - I started using incognito several weeks ago when I was getting no ads and always do that now.

    I`ve been managing to reach the first goal without doing a survey (Except instant surveys), without completing my discover and my to do list because Discover never credits me, tripping doesn`t even work unless i`m doing it wrong. But i`ve only been able to do that because i`ve been off work for the christmas period and now i`m back at work I fear I may have to do a survey

    I do surveys at the end of the day because I just can`t be bothered to do it at the beginning, I know it means all of the spaces have been filled but it does work.

    Some days I managed to reach my first goal just doing NCraves, search, game,poll, deal of the day, swagcode and that`s it, some of the goals were high but you can only do it if you got hours in the day to do it.

    The to do list bonuses don't count towards the daily goal or have any cumulative effect.

    Tripping works for me - after it brings up the load of hotels I usually click on one that's offered by booking.com (don't think the chain matters but I always use theirs) wait for their site to load and that's it.

    (should have added the last few times I have done it and others like them was incognito so when the browsing window was closed they don't leave cookies behind)

    Also clearing tripping and booking cookies helps it to credit
