    Does anyone know how long the postcards to verify your account take to come? I can't remember exactly how long I have been waiting but it must be at least two weeks. Do you think I need to chase this up somehow yet? Thanks for you help

    Hi, I seem to be really struggling this year even to get my first goal, surveys are not forthcoming. I do the apps but movieclips wont let me log in (error 116) so only have 6. Lately my target is around 100 and i am finding it really hard. What am i doing wrong? Any tips?

    It's fun and the extra cash is nice, but nothing on SB pays enough pennies to make it worth stressing about it when it's not working well.

    1. Toro 1-Click travel searches available first thing and stagger the 8 am start.

    2. Market Research 1 SB tasks search and record tasks under Answers/Tasks, I tend to find them first thing in the morning but they are also up late evening time - usually come in sets of 4, possibly two sets. May need to refresh the Crowdflower task page a few times. These tasks are rarely on Crowdflower Elite, by the way.
    I work full-time and don't struggle with the first goal, 7 sets of videos + NCraves + 10 SB for games + the Swagbutton Watch and the odd addition does it without a successful survey completion.

    First from about 6 am to around 9 am there are usually a couple of 1-click travel searches on Discover Toro. Apart from that and Adsend, I struggle with Discover too, although today I picked up 56 SB for the pleasure of getting a free pint in London through a Drinki app (also Toro) that I downloaded weeks ago. The conditions were download the app, register and get a free drink by showing the app in a London pub listed on the app (the drink was a pint of St Austell Pale Ale - very good!!!). I'm told one can get a free drink every day - sounds too good to be true but it worked for me today; I couldn't quite believe it!

    I don't normally bother with discover unless I need it to complete the list but remembered the travel search had to be early so had a look, they were there and credited just by clicking the square.

This cheapo phone plays all 7 apps and nets me 70sb a day. I can honestly say with Swagbucks being so **** these days I wouldn't make my target without this little phone.

    70 apps
    10 games
    3 daily poll, daily ncrave and to-do list
    5 disqualifications from surveys!
    4-6 ncrave
    5 search win
    3+ (depending on how much time) on watch, I do the 20 vids for 3sb

    That'll get you to 100 without any surveys.

    Apps have only run once or twice for me during the two months I've been trying, so I've left it at just the SB app for now.
