Thanks tipsy & Steph! Nice to know that I'm not a complete idiot.  ;D
I'll keep my fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Yes, check it in the morning. Sometimes I don't see it the first time I click on RO (part of my morning routine). I go ahead do all the 1/2sbs offers, go back to the homepage and then go back to RO and it pops ups then. *shrugs* This just started a week or 2 ago. But I'm still getting it daily in the morning.

    i mentioned this to steph, but wanted to mention it to everybody.

    don't forget to do the survey profiles.... they're worth 2 points each.

    if you haven't seen them, go to your settings.  you'll see a tab "survey profiles"  you don't have to put in your password, just click on the tab (you may need to do click twice, it's flaky).  then click on each of the squares and fill out the questionnaires.  the points post pretty quickly

    see, here's one of the things about SB that irks me.  not everyone is on in the morning.  why don't they do blogs later in the evening. or FB codes at 9 PM?  they seem to think people are only on line from 9 to 5 east coast time.  it's unfair to people who mostly on line at night.

    thanks, rant over...

    They do do them occasionally very early in the morning or very late at night but lately they've been very few and far between.

    And today's goal is back up--100!

    ***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

    worth 200 sbs - car insurance offer on the homepage under the gimme box (these offers rotate around, keep refreshing until it pops up)

    enter zip code, submit, enter car info, submit, no other personal info required

    There is another car insurance offer for 120 sbs. I did not try that one. It's a Quotesonic offer which I believe requires you to call an 800 number so they can verify your telephone number. Reports of success on both of these offers on the SB FB wall but there are also those not getting credit. I believe they both say to allow up to 2 days for credit.

    I was using FF for the 200 sb offer and it credited right away. I hope y'all get it too!

    ***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

    worth 60 SB - on Peanut Lab - offer is for Nuvigil

    Is your schedule not a typical 9-5? Having trouble sleeping? -- Swag Bucks awarded when you complete the sign up for a free trial using your valid information.


    There are 7 steps -- the first step is name, address and email; the rest are simple one or two questions each about sleep problems. It's possible that at any step after the first, it may have credited with patience (more than the minute or two between steps that I waited :D ) but I went ahead and did the whole thing and it credited immediately after submitting the info at the end.

    Wow, you guys don't let grass grow, so to speak!  Took a bit of catching up.  ;D

    Got the Crest one for 36 and the one for 60; the others have credited yet.  Thanks everyone.

    Those SB facts are great, Steph.  Thanks.

    I'm just doing some year end calculations and thought I would check swagbucks too.  In 2011, I only got $15 worth of Amazon gift cards.  The big change came when I discovered this thread in the Spring of 2012.  My total for 2012 jumped to $470 in gift cards.   :D

    My pace picked up during the year thanks to the tips posted here and I expect that 2013 will probably be even higher.

    Good wishes to all of you for a productive swagging 2013.   :)

    CODE ALERT!  blog till 1:30 PST for 5 sbs

    PS:  the blog says free entry but one gets 5 sbs instead which is the price of the contest if one chooses.  The 5 sbs just show up in the ledger as swag code credit

    Thanks for the alert, Susan!  I was thinking just a little while ago that it should be about time for a code.

    And nice going on the 2012 GCs!  I haven't added mine up yet, now I'm curious to see. I spent a good part of yesterday getting all my final 2012 computer data backups done and resetting everything for 2013.

    Ohhhh, I hate pizza commercials. They make me so hungry, and nobody delivers out to my house! :D (apropos of nothing except NCIS re-runs are on TV and a Pizza Hut commercial just came on...)

    And I tried the coupons on RO this morning; and I physically printed them - nary a credit; I really don't have luck with that. :(

    Mine too. Yesterday I could have gotten a $15 or 3 $5s through today. I was tempted to go for the quickie & get a $15 but decided to hold out for the bit better value of $5s. So I got my 3rd today & then it will take me a bit more to get my 4th.
    Oh, btw, I got $370 in 2012 (I don't even want to hear what Aprille got  ;) )
