    Terrible on the site today, any offers that credit? I found 1 so far on PL - Great Mobile Offers UK - 17sb, submitted out of date details, so I won't get bothered. Not going to get me very far.

    No daily crave, but if you wait for about 10 mins on Chrome, the Crave page will eventually load and there is one that works, called an nGage. You have to keep clicking between pages and it takes several minutes to credit.

    Any other ideas of how to get even close to 88?

I've looked at my activity list, I was lucky and hit a 60 SB survey without that I'd be on 81 SB but finishing the Apps (30 SB to go) while watching TV this evening would have seen me well home without the survey.

    Apart from that are you running: Swagbutton Watch - 6/7 SB? You'll get a couple of Toro 1-Clicks first thing tomorrow, only worth 2 SB though.

    You should get the 88 one way or the other but the Apps are the staple diet - I guess for most of us.

    I've sprinkled in suggestions in the hope that I've it on something you don't know?

    I`m guessing the daily goal is 88 today? Mines 60 and yesterday it was 50 but I figure that`s because i`ve been ill and just can`t be bothered with it anymore. With the apps I find it takes so long, with all the ads and the X button you continually have to press. My entertain me app is the only one that doesn`t short clips and I have to run the really long videos and that takes forever.

    If it wasn`t for a 25sb search win today I probably would`ve given up already. The apps arent for everyone

    I've messaged hiddenshadow to suggest that the Reference Thread wording should be changed re mobile phone verification instead of postcard.

    If anyone tries it and it works, or doesn't, please post it on here.

    The Favorites feature allows you to set the shortest video within a particular app to be a favourite for that app, and you then run just the favourite app repeatedly.

    Swagbucks App Favorites
    The Swagbucks Reference Thread describes how to use the Swagbucks app favorites feature.
    Tip: Find short videos (there's a list of times here: https://www.reddit.com/r/SwagBucks/comments/2dyb6h/swagbucks_app_video_times/) and add the shortest one to your favourites for that app. When you use the app each day, just click Favourites and it will loop that (short) video over and over, cutting down the time to get to 10SB.

    Note: As Cally points out below, the Swagbucks Reference Thread refers to a list of short videos that is out of date, and also, the shortest video for a particular app depends on the version of the app you have installed.

    I think the valentines collector bills are going to work in the same way as the pie day ones, a search for 'Chocolate and Roses' bought up a 4SB collectors bill. Time to think up a load of valentines words!!

    Richmc - do you think you could spend your time posting something helpful, rather than adding to the spam problem on the code thread. Thankfully MSE HQ removed the spammers post. I am just trying to keep the code thread as intended, and not an irritant. You are not helping. Thanks

    The apps are DIRE. I have better things to do than spend 3 hours completing 1 app. That's with manual interference. Considering I used to be able to complete one in less than 20 mins.

    Most of them are inoperable on IOS devices now or don't even exist. Thanks to Swagbucks!

    Likewise watch or ngage or whatever else you want to call any of the videos they offer. Don't work on IOS devices, no matter what browser. Again, I have better things to do with my life than spend 30 mins trying to earn 1sb.

    Tasks have never been worth the pittance they pay, esp since they introduced levels. They are so flawed that you have to be of the intellectual level of the idiot that wrote them.

    Never get any 1 click offers on Toro or anywhere else anymore.

    Apologies if I'm too frank, but that's the reality. I got a GTM survey in the end, so I made target. 1 sb here or there is not going to help someone make target. When I ask for advice, I'm looking for decent crediting offers from the offer walls, if there is nothing else doing on the site. It's the only way to earn that is worth anyone's time or effort.

    I do find that some people take swagbucks way too seriously and get in a right pickle if there is a possibility to not reach target.

    Some months I make a real effort and find its time consuming as I do all the small things that slowly add up.

    Other months I rarely reach target and dont stress about it.

    Each to their own. Whilst I understand there are bigger SB's to be made doing surveys, I for one find the amount of time wasted by getting so far and then not being suitable far more irritating than not reaching target.

    Im pretty much like this - I run the apps, check the site for instants. Try the occasional survey. Then proceed to get annoyed by far too many surveys as the amount of time things go wrong with the ones on SB is more then other sites IMHO - they are also worth less.

    But SB is still a decent enough way of earning a few extra pennies and every little does add up.

    But to give a comparison (I am far from the biggest user of SB) - in 18 months I have earnt 24500 SB, which I have estimated is around 155. In the same time I have made 650 on Prolific.
