    Yes, I managed it last night, however last but one swago my referral didn't track and SB were useless at resolving it.

    I copied the link and emailed it from.webmail rather than via SB.

    For anyone wanting to make actual cash from Swagbucks, is it easy to get the Mastercard option and either withdraw it direct to a bank account or PayPal, if so are there fees or is it better to withdraw as PayPal?

    i havent tried Paypal but do quite often go with the master card one with regards to turning it into actual cash im not sure as i use it to make payments for household bills so it is as good as using cash as anywhere that accepts visa seems to also accept the prepaid cards. Hope that helps

    It's a bit of a pain as you have to add a new card each time but it's an option.

    Email address of the referral can sometimes throw up " this email address is not allowed". I overcome this by asking referral to use another "mainstream" email provider, like gmail.

    Urghh!!! Started a survey on film franchises, completed most of it then got kicked out. It was one of the ugam or whatever they're called surveys. I always get kicked out and don't know why I carried on doing it. And another one on boilers didn't load the video so that didn't work for me either. Every survey I've done today (about 10) has kicked me out.


    ETA: And just noticed the SBTV has gone from 5% each video to 3-4%.

    I also got kicked out after doing most of that film franchises survey - total waste of time.

Simply click, type the amount, you should see your bank account listed (I guess if there's more than one then you select the appropriate one) and click Continue. In my experience the transfer is within the day (though they say 0-3 days). HTH.
