    I have no idea what is going if Swagbucks are being tight wads or what but for two days in a row now it has been impossible for me to get a search win. My first one normally occurs around 12am.

    It has to be a gold survey that gives you 1sb for DQ.
    Peanut lab surveys dont count as gold for swago

    I use Chrome browser app on my mobile phone and make sure I try and get the 1sb DQ before trying surveys on desktop, usually go there just after 8am (new day)

    It's their yearly re-set - it's taking a RIDICULOUS amount of time for me to even get that first win too. It's the same every year, but obviously they have to take it further and further to reduce how much they're paying out.

    Long, long, long gone are the days when I could guarantee 3 wins per day religiously. Remember that - dubs and trips?! Not terms that anyone ever uses now. I stopped trying for doubles 2 years ago. It seems I might as well stop bothering searching at all. It's annoying that you need it for the to-do list- but they'll drop pay outs too, so probably not worth the trouble.

    Sorry guys, but I would't be relying on info from 2011. You need to contact them to find out current policy.

    Searching seems to get harder the further into the day you go. I try to get my first search win from 8am and for the last week it's taken between 3 and 20-25 searches to get it.
    I used to be able to get another win between 1:30am and 3:59am, then a third one between 4:00am and 7:59am, but that has changed recently and i'm lucky if i get one win in those six and a half hours. Twice in the last 7 days i haven't managed a single search win in those six and a half hours.
    In terms of Swagbucks being tight wads, they have now reduced the number of Watch categories for the second time in two weeks, we are now down to just seven categories and a maximum of 80SB. A week ago you could earn over 110SB from Watch.

    Mine have been fine. Lots of annoying ads but no buffering.

    We already had fibre when I started doing SB, so maybe that helps.

    This may be the effect of Swago Spin & Win dishing out a lot of swag ups for 'Double on Search'. I had 5 on the last Swago and 4 so far on this. If this is happening to lots of people who don't usually bother with Search, it could be using up the quota of wins in any period of time. (I remember a blog, or someone posting here, that Search wins are like a raffle, a certain number available per period (an hour or whatever SBs decide), so at busy times you are less likely to 'win' one.)

    I have superfast fibre and the mobile apps still buffer - other than the actual Swagbucks one.
    I don't think I've had more than two search wins for two years and haven't ever got a full set of collectors bills since they changed things a couple of years ago.
    I got one win yesterday by clicking on the search box in the Swago.
    Daily Crave worked for me today.

    None of the Toro flight searches are ticking the discover box today and only the 10 question quiz on radiumOne - I've been getting it wrong before for ages, does anyone have the answers that actually did it? (or any other secret discover tips )
