Title: Swagbucks!
Post by: Betsy the Quilter on January 01, 2013, 08:15:47 pm
OK, as we discussed, here's the 2013 Swagbucks thread.  This lets us start over, leaving behind all the other information that's not quite up to date.  A shorter thread will also let us find things more easily.

If people want to post their Swagbucks referral code, I'll add it to this initial post.

No, as I said in the other thread, I'm going to let her copy it here,  This is so that she retains ownership and so it'll have a 2013 date.   EDIT:  Oops, didn't see the revised version done today.  I'll move it over.  I thoguht we were still talking about the one she quoted yesterday.

Could someone post up again {really sorry} about the coupons.
I've printed coupons (actually printed paper coupons) and have never had them credit for me at all.
So I assume I'm doing something wrong.
(I've done it from Chrome & FF, so maybe I need to do this from IE - dunno)

Okay, here's a KB Swaggin' 101 for newcomers and oldtimers alike. ;D  I included some edits suggested in the prior thread (thanks, Aprille, for the iOS tips on Mobile). Note that anything is subject to change at any time, on the whims of Swagbucks.... :D

---


KB Swaggin' 101 - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

This is a really high level, basic info FAQ regarding the SwagBucks earnings program, for the benefit of those of us here on Kindleboards.  It's meant to be simple, down and dirty. There's a ton of hints and tricks and other info that can be found elsewhere; a great site to look at is Swagging 101 (http://sites.google.com/site/swagin101/), a site put together by some hard core SwagBucks fans that also post frequently on the SwagBucks Facebook wall.  Our own Aprille also helped with that one.

So, without further ado, here's our own little FAQ. :)

Q. What are the various acronyms and terms I see used in this thread and on the SwagBucks Facebook wall?

A. There are quite a few, here are the main ones we use around here (more info about the actual terms will be provided later):

Acronyms

AGC = Amazon Gift Certificate
FB = Facebook
NOSO = No Obligation Special Offers
PL = Peanut Labs
RO = Radium One
SB = SwagBucks (this can refer to the site, the people running the site, or the value of an offer or redemption)
SBTV = SwagBucks Television
SBTV Mobile (or just Mobile) = SwagBucks Television Mobile
SR = Super Rewards
TP = Trial Pay
TSG = The SwagBucks Guy (cutesy name for the male main 'cartoon' character that's the face of the SB site)
TSGal = The SwagBucks Gal (ditto cutesy name, for the female main character)

Other terms

Midnight bucks


Q. What are the 'dailies' I hear about?

A. There are several sure-fire ways to get a few SBs each and every day.  Unless they change things. :D  In most cases, you can get to these areas from the pull down "Earn" menu on the blue bar at the top of each page.

* Vote in the Daily Poll and get 1 SB
* Do the NOSO 'run' to get 2 SBs -- just click on 'skip' for all of them until you get to the captcha at the end
* Get 1 SB for using the SB Toolbar daily, usually by opening the browser window for the first time or opening a new window if you leave your browser open all the time (more about the toolbar below)
* Get up to 10 SBs daily for playing Games (see more below)

Those are the quick-and-easy dailies.  The first three are tracked for you by SB on your home page, showing if you've gotten them for the day yet or not.


You can also get these every day, the amount you get varies on luck, for searches; for both SBTVs, it depends on the time you want to spend --

* Searches (see more below)
* Get up to 50 SBs daily for running SBTV Mobile (see more below)
* Get up to 150 SBs daily (at least through the end of 2012, may be changed at any time) for running SBTV (see more below)


Q. How do Games work?

A. You can get up to 10 SBs daily by playing games. Generally, you get 2 SBs per 2 games played (but not 1 SB per 1 game).

Here's an easy game to get your SBs, but you can try others and see how they work for you.

1.  Go to Games
2.  Click on Miscellaneous
3.  Click on US Cities
4.  Click on Play for Free
5.  Wait through the 30-second ad
6.  Click on Start
7.  Wait through the 10 questions without doing anything in the game
8.  Once the 10 questions are done and it shows "loading high scores" at the top of the map, click on Back to Game Details in the upper right
9.  Repeat Steps 4-8
10. After every two game plays*, you'll get a pop-up at the top of the screen saying you've won 2 SBs; close the pop-up
11. After 10 game plays, and 5 of the 2 SB pop-ups, quit playing

*Note that sometimes you have to play three games to get your 2 SBs instead of two, just a wonkiness in the game play that pops up occasionally.


Q. How do Searches work?

A. You can do searches either from the SB Toolbar or directly from the SB site.  The SB Toolbar has a blank area to do searches directly from, something you might be familiar with if you've ever installed other toolbars like Google or Yahoo. Plus don't forget that 1 SB per day for the SB Toolbar mentioned above (just searching from it doesn't 'activate' the 1 SB though). You can get to the download for the SB Toolbar by clicking on Tools | Toolbar in the blue bar at the top of each page, or go here:

SB Toolbars (http://www.swagbucks.com/g/toolbars-and-plugins)  (Note that there is no toolbar for Opera, just IE, Firefox and Chrome.)

Not every search will win you SBs; usually only 3 times a day though wins of 4 or 5 times a day can happen.  Most people will get a win in the morning, mid-day, and evening.  But if you just search normally, when you have a need to, you never know what will happen!  Most wins are in the 7-11 range, but occasionally bigger wins happen, from 15 up to 59, and *rarely* a really lucky win higher than that (one of us here on KB had a search win of 100 in July 2012!).

Occasionally, you will see a post that says "the search gates are open" -- that means that on the SB FB wall there are reports of folks getting multiple search wins in a short period of time (and probably the poster as well), or perhaps a lot of people suddenly getting search wins after hours of trying.  FYI, "singles" means the person has had one search win for the day; "dubs" means two; "trips" means three; "quads" means four; and "quints" means five and is rare rare rare...but happens.

Often, dubs and even trips will happen in the half hour or hour following what is known as "midnight bucks" -- which starts at midnight Pacific time, when the SB day starts over.


Q.  What is "midnight bucks"?

A. As mentioned just above, Midnight Bucks is the slang term used for the hour or so after the SB day starts over at midnight Pacific time. During this time, not only are multiple search wins more likely (and, often, higher search wins), but also there are usually more 1 and 2 SB videos and offers on the main page and Radium One. It seems to take 15-20 minutes before all the offers show up on RO, but once they do, you can often get 20-30 SBs from them (as of 1/1/2013).


Q.  How does SBTV Mobile work?

A. If you have an Android or iOS device, you can download an app from SB that allows you to run specific videos that earn you 2 SBs for every 5 videos watched.  SBTV Mobile is only available for Android and iOS devices at this time.  In the Android version, there's a meter in the upper right that advances 20% for each video watched; at 100%, you are awarded 2 SBs automatically and see a pop-up showing the award. In iOS, you don't see the percentage in the meter, just a white bar that progressively fills with green, and you still get a pop-up showing the 2 SBs being awarded after 5 videos.

You do not have to click on each video individually or refresh any pages, Mobile mostly runs on its own. Note, though, that sometimes the ads in between videos hang up and you have to click out of them to continue.

You can get the Android app for your phone (and probably tablets, though maybe not the Kindle Fire) here: SBTV Mobile Phone App (http://www.swagbucks.com/p/sbtv-mobile)

You can also get it from the Google Play app store, or the Amazon app store (best if you have an Amazon Fire), and from the Apple app store for iOS devices.

A tip -- the Comedy category seems to have the shortest videos for Android (that category currently apparently isn't available for iOS).  ;)  The iOS version is new and kind of buggy; the Food and Home & Garden categories seem to be the least crashy and buggy.


Q. How does SBTV work?

A. SBTV can get you up to 150 SBs per day (at least through the end of 2012; the limit may change at any time), but it's tedious and time-consuming.  You have to watch 10 videos to get 3 SBs, usually a minimum of 45 seconds to 1 minute per video.  Similar to Mobile, it has a meter in the upper right; so you can change videos as soon as the meter progresses without watching the whole video (and there are ads before each video that do count towards the 'time' at least).

Be careful not to use auto-refresh or similar programs or add-ons; SB has deactivated a lot of users/accounts that were said to be using such things (though we still don't know HOW they thought/knew it).  Better safe than sorry.

If you're at the computer for awhile anyway, you can at least get some of the SBs, no rule says you have to get them all!


Q. How else can I earn SBs?

A. There are Special Offers available, some of which require little effort; such as just watching videos or filling in an email address.  Most of us have a special email address just for SB, it's easy to get one on yahoo.com, hotmail.com, outlook.com or gmail.com, or a very temporary one at 10minutemail.com. Keeps the spammy SB stuff out of our regular email. ;)  Click on Earn | Special Offers from the top blue bar (or from the left on the home page) and you'll be taken to a page that has tabs running across the middle.  That main page is sometimes called the "Offer Wall", and each of those tabs are individually also called "walls".

When really good, easy offers are available that credit quickly or with little follow-up, someone will usually post it here on KB -- and if you find one, consider doing the same. :)  You'll see the general format we use to highlight those offers on the forum, with a bold heading of bigger font, the amount of SBs for the offer and where it's found, and a quick summary of what it is and what's required.

Not all offers are created equal, so if you're new, you may want to be careful before you plunge into signing up for anything.

And always always be wary/careful of downloading anything; most of us don't, but it's your call. Feel free to ask if you're unsure whether you should do an offer, as a lot of them cycle around again and again and we may have done them -- or avoided them -- before.


Q. What about swag codes?

A. Codes of various SB amounts come out, usually at least one a day during the week and occasional 'codeapalooza' days with many codes, and you can find alerts either on the SB FB wall (if you see a lot of "thanks for the code" posts, you know one is out) or almost always one of us will post the alert here.  No posting of the actual code here, but we can post generally where to find it most of the time. Codes are usually valid for only a short time, from an hour to two hours in most cases.

Codes usually run from as little as 3 SBs to as much as 9 SBs (not including the codeapalooza or code hunt days, or holidays which can be higher also).  Codes can be either static -- which means it's the same for everybody -- or dynamic -- which means the main part may be the same but there are some numbers/letters that change rapidly. If it's a dynamic code, you'll want to copy and paste quickly or else you'll have to refresh the page the code is on to get a new one.  Keeping two windows open helps with that -- one with the home page and one with the code page.

Where do you put a code?  On the home page, in the upper right, is an empty box that says "Gimme" next to it. Copy and then paste (better than typing) the code in the empty box and click the "gimme" button.  Be sure there are no blank spaces either at the beginning or end before clicking on "gimme", often a space gets added in the copy/paste process.


Q. What are tasks?

A. Tasks are various actions you can take, such as searching and recording information or answering questions based on a particular website. Note, however, that SBs earned for tasks will not transfer from your "tasks balance" to your SB balance until you've reached 20. If you finish 3 tasks for 4 SB each, you'll have 12 SB in your tasks balance, but they won't transfer until you've earned 8 SBs more in tasks. If you then get a 12 SB task, then all 24 SBs will automatically transfer.

Most tasks aren't worth bothering with, too much trouble and not enough reward (1-2 SB each). Twice a day, though, a batch of tasks come out that are fairly quick to do and have a decent reward. The morning batch, which are released usually around 8:30am PT, is referred to by users as "Fisher tasks" -- this is because they generally require searching on some variation of "fisher investments", "ken fisher" and the like, and then recording information found as a result.  You can tell them by the titles --

"Search google for articles and retweet them!"  <--- tweeting rarely actually required
"Search google for articles and record information about them! (NOW PAYING MORE!)"
"Search for terms and record the search results #6 (Google)"


The Fisher tasks that are worth 12 require a lot of time and effort and are really a pain, but the 4's, 6's, 8's, 10's and 14's are easy peasy.

The afternoon/evening batch, which are released usually around 3:45pm PT, is referred to by users as "casino tasks" or "movie tasks" -- this is because they generally require searching on either casino or movie terms, and then recording information found as a result.  These titles usually include a reference to a job # and the following day (on Friday, they'll include "Saturday job #5", "Saturday job #14", etc.)

The casino tasks are all pretty easy, and usually consist of tasks worth 4 and 8.

In both cases, in addition to checking around the time they're usually released (the time isn't a hard-and-fast rule; they sometime get released at other times), folks on the SB FB wall will usually post when they're available. Also, you can't get the tasks every day. They'll show up, but when you click on them, you might get to do the task, or you might get either a "thank you for your hard work" message if you finished it in the previous day or so, or a "finished" if all opportunities for the task are complete -- even if it shows on the main page that 100 or so jobs are available. Generally, you might get to do some tasks every 3-4 days. But if you hit it right, some days you might get 20-50 SBs transferred in one day.



Q. Are there any other earning opportunities?

A. Sure! There are coupons and surveys and shop & earn and more. Those generally take more time and effort and may or may not pan out or be worth your time. Rather than go into every opportunity here, we've limited it to the relatively always available and mostly easy earnings possibilities.  You can click around on the SB site to find more, or get info at the Swagging 101 site linked at the beginning of this post.  Or you can always ask here.


Q. What can I get with my SBs?

A. Well, there are all sorts of things you can get.  Just click on Redeem | Swag Store from the top blue bar to check it out.  Most of us here on KB cash in for Amazon gift certificates.  The minimum is $5.

To get a $5 Amazon GC,  you only need 450 SBs.  That may sound like a lot, but it really does add up fast, especially if you can do at least some of SBTV and Mobile.  You can get 5 of those a month, for a total of $25.

SB has recently made cashing in for other GCs easier; all other GCs are a 100:1 SB:$ ratio. 1500 for a $15 GC, 2500 for $25, and so on. Not all GCs have the same $$ value available, so you'll have to look to see what you want.  And, there are no longer any limits on how many per month you can get of a particular GC, except the 5-per-month limit on $5 AGCs.

However, you still can only cash in for 2 GCs per day, no matter the store or denomination.

These limits and SB-per-$ ratio are subject to change at any time, but SB said as of 12/31/12 that they're good for the foreseeable future.

Cashing in for merchandise is really not recommended, the value is not very good. You can almost always get the same thing cheaper by getting a GC to Amazon, Walmart, Target or elsewhere and then buying the item you want.


Q. What else do I need to know?

A. Probably a lot that we're missing. ;) Be sure and check out the SB site, and the Swagging 101 site, if you want more information right now.  Otherwise, rather than get overwhelmed, maybe just start slow with some of the info provided here and gradually learn as you go -- that's sometimes easiest.

It's recommended to click "notify" on this thread (upper right corner) so that you can get the posts to this thread in your email; we try not to be too terribly chatty, though we can be at times. But that way you'll get code alerts direct to your email along with the other stuff.


Most of all -- jump right on in, the water's fine, and feel free to ask questions because we're happy to help!!

You have to use the SB Coupons feature to be credited and it can take up to 12 weeks. Yes, 12 weeks! And you have to actually go to the store and redeem the coupons to get credit. Just printing them won't earn you anything.

The RO offer for 9 sbs per day will not earn you any sbs except for the 9 sbs for doing the offer, even if you redeem them at the store.

For the RO offer, you should receive the 9sbs daily for "printing" 1 coupon (even though it says 25). You do not have to redeem to get the 9sbs.

For the SB coupons feature, you can earn 10 sbs for each coupon you print and redeem but it can take up to 12 weeks to credit.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: telracs on January 01, 2013, 08:53:31 pm
for the 9 SB coupons (the thing that shows up in Radium One and you click to another site) you do NOT have to redeem, you print and eventually (usually 10 to 30 minutes) the 9 SB credits.

for the coupons that you "clip" on the home page, those you have to redeem to get credit.

Okay, so you're not getting credit for printing a coupon on RO? It can take up to 30 minutes to credit. I leave the "print completed" window open until I receive credit although I'm not sure that is necessary. I do it in FF.

I didn't have the Cascade offer. I had the Crest offer, but it didn't credit.

Le sigh.

Carol, I hope you get the 9 SB RO offer to work, as Aprille says it's a nice daily offer (for now anyway, who knows how long).  True confessions, I accidentally closed the window in the wee hours of midnight bucks this very morning after about 5 minutes, and did get eventually credited, but I admit I was worried if I would. I'll probably continue with my routine of leaving it open anyway. :D

I can't look since I already did it today but, I've found it sometimes disappears late in the day if I haven't done it early. Like, sometimes by 4 or 5pm it's not showing for me.

I presume that happens if it's limited to a certain number of people per day.

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.

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

***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.

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.   :)

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  ;) )

$275 in 2010 (started in late April)

ETA: But most of you are ahead of me in 2013. I depleted my account on the 31st for a $25 AGC before I knew they were going to keep the prices the same. So I'm playing catch up. Got one $5 yesterday and should have enough for another tomorrow.

I only got one credit out of this last night but it credited twice this morning in FF. I did clear cache/cookies in between. Lots of reports of 5 or more credits switching around different browsers. I tried IE after the 2 credits with FF this morning but it was a no go.

Oh, just tried again in FF and it credited again! So keep trying... ;D

I got really lucky and got an iPad 4 for Christmas.

I downloaded the app for SBTV for the iPhone since it was the only one I could find.

I've had one problem after another trying to run mobile SBTV on the iPad, and was hoping somebody here had been using an iPad to get SBs - so far, I got it to work long enough one day to get a whopping 8 SBs.

It either goes to just a small blank screen in the middle of the iPad screen, or the app is just unresponsive - it shows a "categories" option but there's no way to get it to show categories, etc.  Nothing I do to the screen I get does anything, except that one time I got those 8 SBs.

I've thrown away several of the apps and then downloaded it again, but so far I haven't been able to get it to work.

Any suggestions?  I sure would like to be able to get those SBs for the mobile app, but at this rate I'm getting nowhere fast.  Any help would be much appreciated!

Post by: Kristan Hoffman on January 07, 2013, 11:08:07 am
clawdia-
Congrats on the iPad!! <3 mine. (I have a mini.)

So, with the SBTV app, it does "glitch out" occasionally. If you get a "timeout" message or a black screen, just shut the app down and start over.

To shut the app down, double click the round home button. A bar will slide up from the bottom of your screen, showing you all your currently open apps. Hold a finger down on one of them, and then they will all wiggle and little X's will show. Click the X to close any apps you want.

Then restart the SBTV app and get going again.

Now, important note (and maybe this should go in the FAQ): You MUST start the SBTV app while holding your iPad in portrait mode!! If you start it in landscape mode, then you will see the videos and categories but not be able to click anything. You will have to close the app (see above) and open it again in portrait mode.

Easy 20 or so SBs!

Hey, there's a Lean Pockets Soap Opera Video for 2 SBs in the yellow "Today's Special" bar at the top of the Radium One wall. 

You might have to hit the little arrow in the upper right hand corner of the specials and page through them to find it.  I'm using Firefox, and when I clicked on it, it just gave me a white screen.  I tried it a couple times and got the white screen each time and gave up.  But then, when I looked at my ledger to see if the coupons had printed, those six SBs were there.  I went back and kept doing it, white screen or not, and got it at least ten times before I was told the offer was unavailable,  I did one more on the regular Radium One wall, but I don't think that credited.  I just left the white screen up for about ten seconds, closed the tab and opened it again.

and the gillette is not working for me again...

Thanks, I actually have an alert on the iPad when something posts to this thread, but if I get involved in something, I tend to ignore the alerts.  And between the WC and trying to fix dinner, I missed the alert.

I wondered why the board was soo quite. Usually I get several emails from kindleboard swagbucks. I forgot you were doing a new thread for this year. Glad I checked in so I can have this one email me too.

I never get credited either for the coupons your supposed to get $$ for printing. Next time I'll try leaving the window open too and see if that helps.  I swear its been longer than 12 weeks and no posting for my 5 coupons I used :( Come to think of it it was sometime during the summer towards the end, if I remember correctly.  I still use them at least I still save at the store :)

well happy belated new years everyone!

Okay, there are 2 different coupon issues going on here. The coupons through SB (not RadiumOne) will earn you 10 sbs each once you redeem them (not just for printing) and can take up to 12 weeks to credit. The RO coupon offer for 9 sbs per day will only earn you the 9 sbs. You will not earn any additional sbs if you use the coupons.

The first time I did the RO coupon offer, I did not get credit. I submitted a ticket on it, was credited within a couple of days and have had no trouble getting credit for it daily since (going on about 3 months now and it started at 14 sbs per day). And you only need to "print" one per day.

If you have redeemed SB coupons and have not received credit within 12 weeks, you can submit a ticket. I don't use them that often but I think I've been credited for most of the ones I have used. It's hard to keep track since you can't tell which ones credit.

If you don't like grooming, then stay away from bichons.   :D   They don't shed and they have hair rather than fur.  It's curly and daily combing and brushing is required to avoid tangles.   Goldens are so sweet and my favorite among large dogs.

***EASY SPECIAL OFFER***

Plink

It's on several SO walls - SR for 236, PW for 270, PL for 233 and some say on SP for 270 but I don't see it there.

I did it on SR for 236sbs. It wants you to link a credit card to the Plink account but an old Walmart or Starbucks gift card will work. I've seen reports of CVS cards working too. I used a Walmart gc that has a small balance on it but once I fill up my gas tank again it will be empty and I'll get a new one.

As I recall (I did it several hours ago) it just required name, email, set up user name & password then select a CC/GC to use. With the Walmart gc you enter the number on the back and then the pin number. Then it asks you for another user name/password (like it wants the one linked to the card you are using) but you can just use the one you set up for the Plink account.

You do need to confirm the link in your email.

Many reporting completing this offer on all walls with the same gc if you use a different email on each one. I've only done the one. Will try another tomorrow and see what happens.

SBTV Mobile problem the last couple of days: it keeps logging me out for some unknown reason & I go for who knows how many unnoticed rounds before I realize the 'meter' is telling me I need to be logged in. Each time I re-log in, I always check 'keep me logged in'.

Anyone else had this problem recently?

Carol - are you using the Android app? There have been lots of complaints the last few days about a Discover Card ad that seems to be hanging up the Android app and/or logging them out. I've been using the iOS app for the last week or so because it's just easier without all the interactive ads to deal with. Although they are starting to introduce them to the iOS app too which, of course, we all knew they would. But I only get a couple today.

I did see a post this morning saying the Discover Card ad is gone so maybe it's running more smoothly today. I haven't started mobile yet. Maybe I'll start out with the Android app on my Fire to see how it's running.

Have you gotten the white screen with X in the upper right-hand corner and "timeout" in the upper left-hand corner? I don't think that one will go away unless you X out of it. I have been getting it a couple of times a day.

There are other actual ads that appear you need to "return to app" or press an X but they continue, for now. They are definitely working on it.

I've been using the iOS app lately mainly because it *had* much fewer ads in general. It would go 4 or 5 videos with no ads at all but they seem to be sneaking in more every day. I had an ad almost every video yesterday.

What category do you watch? I've been watching Food but I saw someone post yesterday that Health had shorter videos. It hasn't really mattered until now as I was FF'ing thru most of the videos anyway but now with more ads, I get distracted and forget to FF. :D
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Kristan Hoffman on January 15, 2013, 08:49:30 am
Interesting. When I use the mobile app on my iPad Mini, I've always had an ad followed by a video, ad followed by video, etc.

I do get the "Timeout" with the white X sometimes (more often recently, I feel like...).

And after someone here mentioned the Health videos being shorter, I switched to that category. I just let it run until it's maxed out -- usually 2-3 hrs? (The yoga videos have attracted some funny questions from my boyfriend, and whoever warned me about the weird laughing Indian guy is right! Scared the bejeezus out of me the first time. Then I just stopped paying attention.)

Carol, I was having trouble with SBTV Mobile on the Kindle Fire (Android) the past couple of days also. Not only logging me out, but also kicking me out of the program altogether. I hope Aprille's news about the Discover ad being gone are right; I've been running it for about 20 minutes, I think, and nothing bad has happened yet other than the usual interactive ad that I have to X out of.

Anyone else seen the RO 9SB coupon offer the past few days? It's disappeared for me, even early in the day.

And in general, the special offers have *sucked* for me the past few days. Hardly any videos, or any new offers, mostly just the same scammy-looking stuff.  Same for y'all?  Fat lot of good it does for them to keep prices decent on the GCs if they make it extremely difficult to earn the SBs to get them. I hoped at first it was just the weekend (even though it was still unusual for a weekend) but yesterday and so far today haven't been much better...

I only have Android devices (no iThingys  :D ) I've got an original Fire & a Nexus 7. It was kicking me out on both.
I almost always only do the Comedy vids (do actually wish they'd add some new ones sometimes!).
I don't have interactive, white screen ads; I just get lots & lots of black screens where I have to back out; this is after a plain ad (no interactive options at all) plays. So maybe I just need to try another channel for a while.

That's the same for me.  It's taking much longer to reach goal lately and it makes me start wondering if it is finally time to break my addiction to sb.   ::)  Also SBTV seems to have longer ads and now takes at least 45 seconds into the video to credit.  >:(    My search wins this year have been both low credit and few and far between.

The problem the last few days has been with the Android app. They apparently have taken down the offensive Discover ad which was to blame.

The white screen with the X is in the iOS app and they are just now introducing the interactive ads to the iOS app.

I should have mentioned this earlier. I didn't have it Sunday. Lately it hasn't appeared the first time I visited the RO wall so I would go ahead and do all the 1 & 2 sb offers (which have been few and far between since the first of the year!), go back to the homepage, back to RO and it would be there. Sunday, I never did find it.

Yesterday I couldn't find it either so I posted about it on the SB FB wall. It was suggested to try switching browsers. Went to IE, there is was. *shrugs* Today, first time I went to RO it was there (on FF) so I only missed one day but I want my 9 pennies! LOL! So, moral of the story is if you don't find it with one browser, switch to another.

Is that an interactive ad?  I figured it was just something that timed out.  I get it occasionally. 

I just play whatever comes up; I have all day.  It's less trouble than having to pay attention to it and fast forward and hit continue.  I guess I'll have to at some point but right now I just let it roll.

Heard of problems with it crediting in FF and people having more luck with it in IE so I used IE. Some are saying they have to confirm their email but I didn't.

Good luck! Hope y'all can get it.

**************************************************

Oh, and that Plink offer I posted about the other day has apparently caught on to using the Walmart and other gift cards and have shut it down where you now have to actually use a bank account. I must have gotten in on the tail end of it. Sorry no one was else to take advantage of it. :(

Thanks, Aprille, got the Care.com offer. They must go off email and not address, because I signed up there a couple of years ago and it went through this time with a different email addy.  I used Chrome, by the way, for anyone else who uses that regularly.

I never did try the Plink offer as I didn't have any gift cards to try it with.  Ah well. Glad you got it!

I don't have the care dot come one.  I looked at the Plink one but didn't have a gift card to try and didn't want to use my bank info.

I tried to do the nomorerack.com one in my inbox but it wouldn't work for me, even when I found my welcome to nomorerack email.  ionno...

Eh, the 10 doesn't count as a 'good' win by itself, it's just normal. ;)  Trips are good though. And the 17 and 27 are each good, and then to get a 22 today too is pretty darn good! :)  Nice 4-win total altogether.

YAY! Glad that offer is working for others. I saw talk of it on the SB FB wall so gave it a go.

I won't have much swag time today or tomorrow. Hubby and I are about to hit the road to New Braunfels (from Houston) spend one night and come home tomorrow. Going to Gruene Hall (oldest dance hall in TX) since we'll be so close. Never been. Hubby's already got his cowboy boots packed. I got rid of mine several years ago so if we dance, I'll have to do so in my sneakers. Hope they have plenty of sawdust on the dance floor! ;D

So I'll miss most of the swag code extravaganza tomorrow. :( I'll have my iPhone with me so maybe I can catch a few codes on our way home if hubby will drive. LOL!

The third code is out in the blog . . . but it's got me stumped.  Can't figure the answer to save my life - not even to earn a few pennies!

Maybe that's not a code - I saw some words all in caps that made me think it might be.  I'm having one of those days where I just feel a bit slow and stupid!

I sure am glad to get the 50 SBTV mobile bucks every day since I got my iPad for Christmas - big help towards getting the goal every day.

Ditto! And btw, the health videos are shorter, but I got tired of the Timeout / X issue and ended up switching to Food for the past couple days. So far no problems, no need to babysit. (And the videos are still relatively short.)

SBTV Mobile question: I've seen some of you mention different "topics" or "channels" of items that you watch, such as health & food. I don't have these options in my Mobile app. (I do see them for the desktop/browser regular SBTV options). The only ones I have for SBTV Mobile are: In Theaters, Music, Now on DVD, Game Trailers, & Comedy Time.

Awww, missed the late code.

Carol, I think the difference in categories depends on using iThingies or Android. I'm using my Fire w/Android, and have the same categories you do. But I usually see Kristan or Aprille mention those other categories (health, food) in connection with iThingies.

I just checked:  on my iThing, I have the following nine categories of mobile SBTV:
Entertainment, Fashion, Food, Health, Home & Garden, Music, News, Pets & Travel, Celebrity

On my Fire, as Carol said, we have five categories of mobile SBTV: In Theatres, Music, Now on DVD, Game Trailers and Comedy Time

On regular SBTV on the Toolbar, we have ten:
Style, Swagbucks Originals, Splash, Tekzilla, DIY, HGTV, food, cnet, zoo, elle

On the regular SBTV (http://video.swagbucks.com) website, there are ten:
SB Originals, Entertainment, Fashion, Pets&Travel, Food, Tech News & Reviews, Health, News, Homes & Gardens, Music.  These are further split into subcategories.

worth 43 - Super Rewards
worth 34 - Peanut Labs

TaxACT

I think we blew through a few of these last year. It's the same offer on different walls to earn sbs for filing your taxes online. But all you have to do is create an account, click continue through a few other pages, click on new user, skip the pdf part. Once you get to the page that asks for your basic info (including ss#) just leave the page open until it credits.

I did both in FF. The one on SR took nearly 15 minutes to credit (I was about to give up on it). The one on PL took less than 5 minutes.

There is another on RO for 19 but I get an error message when I click on it and apparently from the buzz I'm reading on the SB FB wall, there was one on SP last night worth 62, then it dropped down in value and now I think it's gone but might be a good idea to keep checking for this offer across all SO walls over the next few days.

You need to use a different email address each time. Gotta love 10 minute mail. Thanks for that find, Steph! (It was Steph who told us about that wasn't it?)

I cannot tell a lie - t'weren't me. :D But I too thank whomever it was, as I've used it on some offers. Kristan maybe?

Now I'm off to try the Tax Act offers.


ETA: Well, they're not even showing up for me, other than the one on RO with the error. That's what I get for staying up late for Midnight Bucks and thus getting up late! :D  Maybe they'll show up later or tomorrow; I've already hit goal for today so it'd be nice to have them for tomorrow's goal.

I don't keep strict time, but usually around 3 or so hours. I think technically Health is the shortest, but it bugs out for me a lot, so I switched to Food, and that started bugging out a little bit, so I've been doing News (which bugs out the least). "Bugs out" meaning I get a white screen that says "Timeout" and I have to click a little white X to continue.

Thanks, Susan.

This is a prediction code so if you guess right, you will be awarded another 5 sbs on Mon. I don't know who to pick because I really don't care :P

ETA: Okay, I just picked the 49ers. Do you know how hard that is for a Cowboy fan?!?!?! Steph does... :D

Thanks for the reminder Aprille.
A while ago I put in a recurring monthly reminder in my Google calendar for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of each month at 9:30pm to remind myself to do this! Sure don't want to overlook cashing in.  ;D

I cashed in for $15 on the 27th.  Not much left in the coffers now...

Yeah, I got a $15 on the 20th & then had some very very low days at the end of the month, so I'm only going to be able to get 3 $5s right off the bat & have to build up to the rest.

Chevy video on RO for 1sb is crediting over and over on my Fire. I'm at 43 and counting...

It's crediting at about 10 seconds into the video. I have had a few times that it didn't credit but then just try again and it will start back up.

ETA: Some are also reporting getting it to credit multiple times in Chrome.

Nope. Just closing the tab with the video. Going back to the tab where RO is open. Click on video again. At first when I went back to the RO tab it was auto-refreshing back to TP and I would have to click on the RO tab but now it just goes back to RO with no refreshing.

At 60 and still going...

ETA: As soon as I posted this when I went back to the RO tab, it auto-refreshed the page and I was on TP. Clicked on RO. Video still there and crediting.

Isn't three search wins pretty standard?  Even in pre-captcha days, I rarely got more than three search wins a day.  I didn't think it was very common to get four?

Historically, I'd say my daily search winnings average between 24 to 28 SBs, exluding days with a Megabucks win.

I actually tend to get up to 3 at work and up to 3 at home.  But I can't search at work when I'm in captcha, since I can't see the captchas due to our firewall.

So I got a 7 search at work today that I couldn't credit, an 8, the 29 and 11 at home now.

BTW, off topic, betsy, you in California again?

Has anyone checked out Swagbucks Trade-In for books?  I'm thinking about getting rid of some of my hardback books.

I checked it out this morning and put in about a dozen books by well known authors and got the message that "we are not buying that book" for each of them.  These have all been best sellers in years past but I guess they are must be looking for current best sellers and I haven't bought a dead tree book since I got my Kindle.

The IRS gives a decent tax deduction on books so I'll continue that route.

Got the 2nd and was just coming to post the 3rd but Susan beat me to it. :)

I've been sick with what I think is just a bad cold (thought it might be an infection like strepthroat but now I'm pretty sure not) so I haven't been around or doing much swagging this week. Daily goal? What daily goal?  lol

Oh, and I think I saw a question from someone....telracs maybe?...as to largest search win. I had a win for 100 around July 4th last year. :) Shocked my socks off, it did. Otherwise, without looking, I think I've had one win for 59, maybe one or two in the 40's. Several 33's and 39's. But they don't come often.

I had planned to take a break from Swagbucks today, but I am bound and determined to reach goal each day if possible. I have 6 swagbucks to go then I am out of here for the day.

I found at the bottom of the main page, by clicking on "Play", but if I click on "Play" at the top of the page, I get taken to "Online Games" and don't find "Miscellanous Games" or anything else that shows up on the regular "Games" page.

NICE. I'm about 2 days away, so I'll have to decide whether it would be a better deal to wait to get March's 25 first or indulge in a 15 right away.  :D
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on February 21, 2013, 12:54:11 am
Yay on the $25, Jaasy! I should be able to get a $15 today but that'll probably put me a bit behind on the $5's at the beginning of March. I haven't been working as hard at swagging the past couple of weeks.

I dunno about the new layout. It's kinda busy and cluttered, especially on my Fire (keeping in mind I use the normal web desktop layout and not a mobile layout), and I could do without the rewards things on the right. I kind of like that the swag code 'gimme' box is now on every page by virtue of being in the header but it's definitely easy to miss since it's not *obvious*. And not having an easy search bar on every page -- having to take an extra step by first clicking on the link -- is a step backwards.

And I rather miss the rotating 4-block thingie.

Oh, and I dislike having to hover to see how many SBs I've gotten towards the goal instead of having it automatically show. I don't want it to just show a *percentage*. I'm too lazy to do the match and watching the bar increase isn't good enough.  Dammit.  :D

Awww, thanks for the birthday wishes. :)

Scanned over the last few pages. Steph, hope you're feeling better and you too, Betsy!

New game format - I'm not sure it's rolled out to everyone yet. Or maybe it has now with the new homepage layout. I'm still using the old format by clicking on "Play" at the bottom of the homepage or you can also use the direct link to US Cities that gg provided a page or two back.

Pasting in the new gimme box - this seems to be a FF issue. I've always used Ctrl-V to paste so didn't even notice until the FB wall blew up with complaints about not being able to paste the code. I always have a tab open with my ledger so I've been using that gimme box most of the time anyway and the old school copy and paste (right mouse click/paste) still works there.

Reminder - Monday is the big birthday bash/code extravaganza and it's going to be one big, hot mess! Read the *very* confusing details ::) in yesterday's blog:

Everything You Need To Know About The Birthday But Were Afraid To Ask (http://blog.swagbucks.com/2013/02/httpblog-swagbucks-com201302swagbucks-5th-birthday-blowout-html.html)

Those of us available to be chained to the computer all day will have to band together and figure it all out. ;D

Okay, now that the first two puzzle pieces have been flipped over (and I can see they're not going to change it), I will reveal that shortly after midnight PST the entire puzzle was exposed on the Birthday Bash page. It was hilarious because some were posting on FB asking for help to solve it and SB was replying to refresh the page. LOL! That's why they released the early FB code and I assume that code won't count toward the total of 135sb in codes today.

Anyway, I have a screen shot if anyone is interested. PM me as I probably shouldn't post it here. I may be crossing a line even posting this and I will probably delete this post later...

I'll be in and out today. I have to be away from my computer a lot today so I'll be missing a lot of the codes. Thanks for the alerts Aprille and Susan. Hopefully I'll be able to get several codes today. Since I'll be away from my computer a lot today, unless I get several special offers or a good survey that I have the time to take I will have a hard time making goal today.
Have a fun  SWAGBUCK day. :)

Wah wah... :P

Hehe, but in all seriousness, yes, it was a wonderful, generous gift (yay for airline mileage!) and his mom had a great time (minus her wallet getting lost/pickpocketed at Versailles).

More like half an hour for me!

It's back up but only one code showing on it. SB just posted this on FB:

Quote
You crashed the party!! The Birthday Blowout page is officially back! The three codes that were live at the time the page went down will now be released 1 at a time, each giving you sufficient time to redeem it. You will still have the same opportunity to earn up to 135 Swag Bucks through Swag Codes alone!

Ledger is still down so I don't even remember what the last code I got was but I'm pretty sure I got the one currently showing.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!

Y'all blew things up!  Way to go!  :D

I was in the Wal-Mart parking lot when I saw the alert about there being 3 codes and I was all excited thinking I could get them all on my Blackberry...then totally bummed when the Bash page wasn't showing anything but the title and headers/footers. But at least it wasn't just me. Now I'm home and I got what I hope is the first of those 3 on 'replay' and it looks like 11 codes still to go based on non-turned squares....if there will be codes for all.

Such fun!

Anybody know what's supposed to happen when the whole puzzle is revealed?  For about a minute during midnight bucks, the whole puzzle showed up (more glitchy software, I suspect).

I do wish just once they'd realize ahead of time that they were going to have server issues when they do days like today, that are designed to keep as many people as possible on the site for as long as possible.  Happens every time, it seems.

I posted that I did a screen shot of the fully revealed puzzle this morning and to pm me if anyone wanted it. ;) This was why they did the FB code (GLITCH) this morning.

My guess is we will use the solution to the puzzle to do some sort of code hunt and by my calculations it will only be worth 10sbs. Maybe they'll give us some extra for all our aggravation today. LOL!

Well I guess the easy 10 points for letting fives sets of games run in the background has ended.  I'm not a gamer but played two games of foreign cities this morning and after each, I got an "oops, an error has occurred, please refresh page".  I see that there is a scorecard that shows two games played but zero swagbucks rewarded. 

The info center now says that swagbucks will be "periodically"  awarded to game players.  I hate games.   >:(

***EASY GAME FIND IN NEW FORMAT***

Cat Invasion

Let the ad play. Start the game. Let it run on it's own. Game over in about 20 seconds. Click on Quit. Rinse, repeat 9 more times. Quickest I've ever made my 10sbs for games! ;D

I did this in FF. I haven't looked at the SB FB wall much yet this morning but I did see some complaints about not getting the pop-up with Quit on it. Not sure if that is game-specific or if it might have something to do with browser.

Oh, yay! I'm glad it worked for both of you.

I had played European Cities when the new game format rolled out in beta version a few weeks ago. I "played" two games and it took FOREVER. Seemed to run much longer than US Cities. I got my 2sbs, figured out how to access the old game format and never looked back. LOL!

I was SO disappointed last night when I figured out the old game format was gone for good.

So, on a lark, I decided to check out Cat Invasion this morning and was pleasantly surprised at how it worked. Now, where we may run into a problem is if an ad doesn't play before the game because I think games have to run a specified time (including ad) to credit just like SBTV. I know in the old game format if an ad played, I could go "back to game details" on city 7/10. If no ad played (which was often) I had to let it run to city 8/10. So we'll see how that plays out (no pun intended ;)) if/when ads don't show up.

***EASY SPECIAL OFFERS***

RadiumOne:

Big 5 Sporting Goods - 23sbs - FB app to allow and "print" coupon - leave tab open until it credits (5 to 10 minutes)

Pirate 101 - 17sbs - register and click on play (maybe twice?) until you get to a page that wants you to download - leave tab open until it credits, again 5 to 10 minutes for me

There are also a few games worth 5sb each that say just to register (but then that's what the Pirate 101 offer said). I haven't tried them yet but I assume you would need a different email for each. If I give them a try, I'll come back and let you know.

Yeah, I had been wondering about this. Did something come up on the FB wall about it?

Thanks for the offers alert, I haven't tried them yet but will shortly. In the meantime, I'll offer one in return:


worth 15 - Sponsor Pay (sorry, I put Peanut Labs initially)

Kitsy Lane - Your Own Fashion Boutique - Sign up with valid contact details. No purchase required.

Just requires email on first page, then name, password, username and name for your own boutique on the second page. Takes just a few minutes to credit.

I'm in the same boat, Steph.  I got enough for two $5 but I had a $25 to credit yesterday.  I did note that I have about 1,000 SBs to credit in March for shopping - should be a good month.  Plus, I made goal all of February; think I'll do a lil slacking in March...

i have enough for 2 x 5 dollar GCs today and one more tomorrow.  i have a 700 point shop and earn coming in by the end of next week, so that'll give me my five for the month....

Hmm, there's an update for the iOS app. Any rumblings on FB about whether or not the update is good or bad? (In particular, whether it makes it harder to earn SBs?)

As for 10minutemail -- yeah I can see why they might not like that... But can they really tell?? (And how?)

Not advocating that anyone keep using it, mind you. We all have to make that decision for ourselves. I'm just wondering... *halo* ;P

worth 98 - Super Rewards

Turbo Tax (must use an email you've never used for this offer before - I'm gun shy of 10minutemail now so I created a new yahoo account)

simple registration - took about 15 minutes to credit (left page open until it credited)

Also attempted the Turbo Tax offer on RadiumOne worth 50 (with yet another new yahoo email account) but it's been over 45 minutes and still no credit. I'll report back if it ever credits.

Good thing is I now have 2 new email accounts to use for special offers. ;D

Edited to add: Well, I just checked the "missing swagbucks" link on RO and it shows this offer as "viewed" which means it ain't gonna credit. ::)

Apparently there is a box you can uncheck to keep it from using your FB info but I missed it. Hopefully I can unsubscribe from the emails I will be getting. The things I do for 68 cents... ::)

Edited to add: Already got 2 emails. First one gave the option to change email so I did that figuring unsubscribing from a site like this probably wouldn't work. Second email I went in and turned off all notifications. We'll see if that works. LOL!

Dunno if this impacts anyone else, but I'm holding off on the latest iOS update because a few of the reviews have mentioned the meter not moving. :/

Also, they seem to have put new vids into the categories (which impacts all versions of the app) and they all seem longer than before to me. :(

More iOS mobile SBTV app observations:
- Celebrity now seems to have good length vids (1:15 ish)
- Fashion isn't too bad (1:40 ish)
- Categories now seem to max out (meaning you can't get all 50 SBs from the same category anymore -- I wonder if this is what people mean about the meter not going up anymore? I'm still afraid to update and find out though...)

They've been talking about the move for a week or so, but only in the main forum and the Writer's Cafe. It just happened last night.  Change your bookmarks now, they'll redirect for about a week but not always specifically to the direct link you had (my link to this thread just redirected to the home page rather than a direct updated version of the thread, for instance).

While I don't use iOS, it's good of you to keep posting the info you've found out. I think Betsy uses her iPad from time to time and Aprille maybe an iPhone? In an event, similar changes may come to Android sooner or later too, for those of us who use our Fire or another Android device, so it never hurts to see what you're dealing with.  :)

I guess that's what I get for being a hermit and only sticking with my half a dozen or so threads. :P

Way to go, Carol!  That is so much better than me, I made goal 5 times so far and those are scattered.  But, I'm 217 bucks from a $15 AGC in addition to my 25s this month.  That's not too bad...

***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

worth 85 - Super Rewards

Fit Britches

It took about 5 minutes to credit for me in FF. Some have reported if it didn't credit, they removed the app, unliked the page and did it again and got credit.

I'll copy and paste instructions someone posted on the SB FB wall:

Quote
How I got it to credit:

Step 1: Click on the offer (I know duh right?)
Step 2: It will take you the fit britches website
Step 3: Scroll down to the bottom right hand corner. Do you see the blue facebook icon? *it's squared shaped and has a "f"
Step 4: Click on the facebook icon
Step 5: It will take you to their facebook page.
Step 6: To the right hand side you will see "Recent Posts by Others" click on this!
Step 7: Look for a post by Alex Glave. She asks "How do I install the app?" The moderator of the page responded. Click on the link the moderator provider.
Step 8: Install the app
Step 9: Like the page (some people got credit w/o doing this)
Step 10: Leave the tab open and wait for credit.

P.S. This app spammed my FB wall 3 times before I could get the app removed. Kind of annoying but I was able to delete the posts and block Fit Britches from posting to my wall again.

Edited to add the name of the offer. DOH! That might help. ::) Glad Susan figured it out without that minor detail. LOL! :P

*sigh*  Of course, I don't have that offer....I'll keep an eye out and see if it pops up, though, so thanks, Aprille!  (If they discount the value over time like usual, it'll probably be worth 20 by the time I see it. :D )

(Geez, what's with the new smilies? I like some of the old ones better....yeah yeah, gritch gritch gritch, that's me.  lol)

I plod along with my SBs. I get mine mostly from a very few searches, the dailies, SBTV Mobile & SBTV. I rarely get those extras that you other regulars get (I'm really sad those 10 game points went away); but I've gotten so I can usually get the 5 $5 & 1 $15 AGC.

And I am so reluctant to do anything that requires liking on FB or installing a FB app - because of what Aprille reported earlier today - the spamming.
So I really enjoy hearing about all the SBs that so many of you get (really, I do  :'( ) and I just keep plodding along.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. Except I don't even get all five $5 AGCs usually. More like 3 -- but I'm cool with it. I just miss the heyday, that's all. ;D

I haven't been around in a while. Why are you not getting your 10sbs from games anymore? I see some reporting problems on the SB FB wall but I think it's mostly with IE. I'm still doing Cat Invasion in FF and getting my 10sbs in 7-8 minutes every morning.

I tried 3 or 4 different days in FF; I'd get maybe one win out of 8-9 tries.  :( Wasn't worth the trouble

I went back a page and saw Kristan reporting on her finds with the iOS sbtv mobile app. I have not updated iOS (still running 6.0.1) or the app.

Here's a new trick I've discovered. The Home & Garden category has several "10 second tip" videos (although this should work with any video, you just have to watch 8-9 seconds and then FF to the end). Once the video ends, click on Replay Video and the video reloads with no ad.

While I have not ever done this for the entire 25 rounds, you should be able to max out in less than 45 minutes if you constantly babysit it.

Hmmm. What version of FF are you running? I'm still running FFv16.0.1. As you can tell from my last post, I have an aversion to updating browsers/apps. It always seem to screw up something. ::)

I *think* I tried it in 16, but honestly can't remember. I'm up to 19 now, so I guess I should try again. I also think I tried in Chrome, but it would definitely be worth a re-try if you & others aren't having any troubles.

Yes, please try again! I find it to be an easy 10sbs a day. Post here if you're still having problems. I promise to try to check in more often. :)

Yes, real life does tend to get in the way sometimes yet I still manage to get my Swag on every day. ;D And I'm more than happy to help out if I can. You can always feel free to shoot me a FB message too (which I would probably see before a PM here). But I will also try to pop in here more often. ;)

YAY for Carol getting her games working again. I don't blame you for being excited. 10sbs a day adds up! And it's so easy now! Oh, I've also discovered you don't have to "quit" between games. "Play again" works too. One less click per game. ;)

I also noticed that the "yellow" icon for coupons changed.  Now they want you to spend a dollar for a credit something or another!  It was a fun 9 while it lasted...

There are multiple coupon offers now. One wants you to join some savings club for $30. But the old 9sb free one is still there. I sometimes have to hunt for it by switching browsers. One day last week it didn't pop up for me until the middle of the afternoon. And if I don't get it first thing in the morning (it's part of my swag routine) I sometimes forget to keep looking. But it's still there. I do leave it open until it credits which is usually 10-15 minutes but yesterday it took an hour.

Code alert on blog for 2 sbs by 4pm pdt

The blog is touting the upcoming double swagbucks shop and save.  I'm still waiting for resolution to the shop and save sbs that I didn't get from their birthday extravaganza.  I sent them the info and verification mentioning that while I was completing my purchase the swag site crashed and I suspect that the connection might have been broken with drugstore.com.

They told me I have to wait 32 days to even see it appear in pending though any other purchase shows up there in a few day.   >:(
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on March 22, 2013, 01:24:56 pm
Hold tight, Susan. SB will not look into any S&E issues until 32 days. It's just the way it is. Good news is that I've done 40ish S&E purchases and only had to submit 4 tickets and have always gotten my sbs. I will tell you that the 4 times I had to submit a ticket was when the purchase never showed up as pending. But if you have the order confirmation email to send SB, you will get your sbs.

Check your SB inbox for EntertaiNow offer - earn up to 50sbs.

I've had this offer for a while but it's just now showing up for a lot of people. This offer unlocks daily and you can earn 50sbs and sometimes more if you time it right. Click on the video (where it says "click for content"). Scroll down. It's not the picture at the top. Let the ad run. For longer ads you can skip the ad when it says you can. You'll get a pop-up telling you the reward has been unlocked. Click ok. Refresh and repeat as long it keeps crediting. When you don't get the pop-up after the video, it's done for the day. Good luck and I hope everyone gets it!

P.S. Do NOT delete this inbox offer if/when you get it even if it says expired. It will unlock daily.

Edited to add: If you don't have the offer in your inbox, try this link:

http://www.swagbucks.com/g/l/bevn22

It typically only stays unlocked for an hour or so per day...

Yay, Kristan.

FYI - It doesn't credit every single time. Keep trying if you see it doesn't credit. I don't usually get the full 50sbs out of it every day but get close. One day I got 52. I have finally quit checking for credit after every video ::). My experience is that when you quit getting the pop-up after the video, it's done for the day.

Couldn't check out EntertaiNow this afternoon while at work; but I'm pretty content right now: got my 5-$5 AGCs early in the month; tonight was able to order a $15 (about 2 days earlier than I expected); and made goal for 21 days in a row (a first for me) plus goal for today.   ;D

Thanks to EVERYONE for their postings that helped me snag enought SBs to make it this far for the month. Y'all are great & I feel very guilty at tagging along on your coattails & so rarely being able to chip in with any new SB opportunities. Love the KB SB'ers.  :-*

I feel the same way   :).  This is a really helpful thread with postings from a lovely group of people .

You shouldn't feel guilty though since the whole point is to share opportunities with those who would otherwise miss them.  Happy swaging.  :-)

When I did the SB poll, I got a "Watch this video and earn 2 SBs"; I also saw the ad above the "Snag this Amazon GC" offer that showed up under rewards on the home page.  I've been playing it over and over again, and have at least 30 SBs just from it, and still going. So look for the ad around the website.

Also there was a popup about printing Famous Footwear coupon and get 20 SBs which credited almost immediately.

Back from vacation and trying to get back to doing SBs!

This group is the best!

EntertainNow videos are unlocked. Go get 'em while they're available.

Go back a page to my replies #768 & 770 for link and instructions. (Sorry, don't know how to link specific replies.)

Also, the first couple of times I clicked on it, I got a bad request message. Third time it worked.

You're welcome, ladies! Glad you were both online and saw my post.

Mine tapped out at 40. These videos have been unlocking pretty much daily with yesterday being an exception. We just never know when or how long but I've got several people who alert me when they discover it so I'll be posting here as I can. It's easy sbs!

Post by: Aprille on March 24, 2013, 10:44:03 am
I maxed out at 90. ;D

I think it must be a timed thing and it lasted over 2 hours today. I'm trying to find out on the SB FB wall if anyone else is getting credit.

Some say they can get 50 in each browser but I'm guessing they would have to time that just right.

The offer is still showing as "hot" in my inbox. After I maxed out in Chrome, I tried to go back to FF but still not crediting. I haven't been able to get IE to load on my laptop for over a month and since I *loathe* IE, I didn't really care until today. LOL! May have to think about uninstalling and reinstalling IE if this offer hangs around.

If you have the Formula 1 worth 2sbs on the homepage, I got it to credit 6 times earlier this morning and it's back. Reports of it crediting 8 more times on the SB FB wall. I've got 2 more out of it so far.

BTW, this is one of those activity offers but I discovered earlier that it credited for me after the 15 second video. No need to do the activity afterward...

Edited to add: Got it to credit 9 more times just now so a total of 30sbs for the day with it.

Total for the entertainment videos =93   ;D   between Chrome and IE.  I have Windows 8 on this desktop and IE isn't bad at all on it but I am a Google fan in everything so desktop choice is Chrome.

No, I don't have FF installed but may have to consider it.  After 15 Formula 1s, I got the internal server error message so unless it shows up on a card again, it may be done for today.

Looks like I maxed out in IE, but I can't get any points at all for the EN vids in FF no matter what, and I can't get any more in Chrome no matter what.  Still, 85 is not a bad amount.

I say "no matter what", I haven't tried clearing cache, history, etc.......


Edit:  Ha, and when I cleared cache etc. in Chrome, the tag changed to "expired".  LOL

Weird, because it DOES say Saturday... but I got it too.

I did not, however, get any of those Entertainment video SBs. :( In fact, when I clicked through, it said the offer was no longer available, so I either missed the window or my link doesn't work.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on March 24, 2013, 11:46:10 am
Yeah, it says "how are y'all doing on this Saturday", but then hides in there "come back tomorrow and enter this code...."  Sneaky, aren't they?

I think you just missed the window; when it expired on Friday, I got that same "offer not available" message. Be sure and keep the offer in your inbox though, it'll still be 'good' when it reactivates next time.

Also, if you have it, the Hybrid video (social vibe offer) worth 2sbs credits multiple times. I got 16sbs out of it. Filter for "free", start playing the video, wait for the "continue" button to turn green (sometimes it a little bit after the video finishes), click on "continue" then page down to get to the "skip step" link (or you can click on "share" which opens another tab - it doesn't actually share unless you click "share" again).

People on the SB FB wall are reporting the EntertaiNow videos are open again. My link from the inbox is not (I only have the one) but will try the link I posted a few pages back. Thing is, we're on the road at an RV park and the wi-fi is so slow it reminds me of dial up so I'm not sure I can run them anyway. Lucky for me I had a S&E purchase credit today so goal is met because I haven't been able to do much otherwise.

The link in this post from a few pages back is working for me while my inbox offer link is not. Strange but true. So if your inbox offer link isn't working, try this one...

***ATTENTION***

Check your SB inbox for EntertaiNow offer - earn up to 50sbs.

I've had this offer for a while but it's just now showing up for a lot of people. This offer unlocks daily and you can earn 50sbs and sometimes more if you time it right. Click on the video (where it says "click for content"). Scroll down. It's not the picture at the top. Let the ad run. For longer ads you can skip the ad when it says you can. You'll get a pop-up telling you the reward has been unlocked. Click ok. Refresh and repeat as long it keeps crediting. When you don't get the pop-up after the video, it's done for the day. Good luck and I hope everyone gets it!

P.S. Do NOT delete this inbox offer if/when you get it even if it says expired. It will unlock daily.

Edited to add: If you don't have the offer in your inbox, try this link:

http://www.swagbucks.com/g/l/bevn22

It typically only stays unlocked for an hour or so per day...

Neither of the links in my inbox worked, and neither did your link, Aprille.  But since you posted just over an hour ago, I may have just missed the window.

I did end up getting another 30 from the second inbox link in the wee hours this morning, just after midnight bucks started, so that was cool.  I noticed they took away the "skip ad after 30 seconds" option for the longer ad, or is it just me?

ETA:  The vid for now is 3:16 long but the skip button is back...

Post by: Steph H on March 29, 2013, 11:56:02 am
Chrome stopped crediting/working after just a few vids so I switched to IE, and when I went to my inbox there, I had a new email that shows credit up to 100 rather than 50. That was new within 10 minutes, so maybe the offer will be open for awhile!

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on March 29, 2013, 12:10:45 pm
Yeah, so do mine, but I figured since I had to switch, I'd go with the one that says 100 (even if the older ones often go more than 50). :D

Well, I ended up with 52 before they all expired, so even having the 'up to 100' didn't help.  But hey, that's most of goal for the day and I hadn't even done anything else yet!

Okay, I got the new email today too (earn up to 100sbs) but we were on our way home from Lake Livingston so by the time I got home, both my emails were expired. But someone just reported on the SB FB wall that they are live again. Both my emails are still expired but the link I provided in this thread is working for me. If you get a bad gateway message when you click on it, try again. That sometimes works.

So happy to be home. My wi-fi seems *smoking* hot compared to what I've been dealing with the last 3 days. LOL!

Edited to add: here is the link I'm using http://www.swagbucks.com/g/l/bevn22

But I just noticed my 50sb inbox offer is now unexpired. It doesn't say hot but it doesn't say expired anymore. I'm sticking with the above link until it stops crediting...

@Jaasy - I tried the EntertaiNow videos on my Kindle Fire last night and it didn't work either. The video in the "click for content" box was black and clicking on it did nothing.

But, I did get 196sbs out of the EntertaiNow videos yesterday. Got 47 in FF. Switched to Chrome. Got 50 more. Went back to FF, cleared cache/cookies. Got 45. Back to Chrome, clear cache/cookies. Got 36. Back to FF, clear cache/cookies. 18 more. Whew! I was glad when they quit crediting. I was getting tired. :D

***EASY SPECIAL OFFERS ALERT***

Both on SponsorPay

High 5 Casino worth 19sbs (I think this was the name of it, it's gone now that I've done it but it was the first offer when I opened the SP wall) FB game - I started playing it and got hooked. Stupid slot games. ::) It took about 20 minutes to credit. Not sure if you have to play or just leave the tab open. I did it in FF.

Star Wars - Play for Free worth 21sbs (I had to filter for "free" to find this one) - simple registration - when you get to the download page, just leave it open until it credits. Took 5 or 10 minutes for me. Also did this one in FF.

EntertaiNOW videos are active again (or still). And right now the video isn't even playing. You just refresh the page and the reward unlocks. I've earned 122 in FF. Now starting in Chrome. You can also have multiple windows open and running. Not sure how good of an idea it is running it in multiple windows but I've seen others post they're doing it. I'm just running 3 at a time. I saw one person say she was running 17 at a time the other night!

Unlocking without the ad playing is obviously a glitch so catch it while you can!

Edited to add: Okay, I seem to have tapped out at 170. My inbox link still says "hot" but clearing cache/cookies and switching browsers is no longer working. I'm getting the pop-up, it just quit crediting. Which is just as well because I have things to do! LOL!

And I believe it is now officially dead. I got 234 out of it this morning. It was apparently open all night and I'm seeing some people reporting 800 and more out of it.

I saw Jaasy's post saying it was open last night. We had just gotten home from a night of live music with old friends at an ice house and I was too tired to take advantage. I got about 15 and went to bed. Wish I could have taken more advantage of it but I'm pretty happy with what I got. ;D

OK ladies - it's dumb old me again. I can't figure out the instructions about EntertainNow (i've tried this several times).
I'm going to take up some screen space to show you what I see when I give this a try, and maybe someone can explain what I'm doing wrong.  :(

So, from my inbox, I see the following:
(http://i1150.photobucket.com/albums/o604/cegabq/SBs%20won/01_zpsf43e906f.png)

I click on 'Continue', and this is the next screen:
(http://i1150.photobucket.com/albums/o604/cegabq/SBs%20won/02_zpsc6031389.png) NO link.

So, I click on the Video tab, and I see this:
(http://i1150.photobucket.com/albums/o604/cegabq/SBs%20won/03_zps9440d6d7.png)

I play the video but nothing ever credits. I've tried this in Chrome, FF, & IE and never have success. Clearly I'm missing the boat somewhere.

Finally ran out for me after 243.  All 4 offers I have in my inbox are now showing expired.  Remember to keep the email, though, because you can generally re-use one or more of the links when the offer is open!
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on April 01, 2013, 01:52:43 am
***EnteraiNOW Video Info***

Thought I would consolidate my original instructions post and the additional links. Next time it's active, if you're inbox offer is still "expired" or doesn't work, try one of these 3 links. I'll try to get some screen shots of the "click for content" box next time it opens up.

Check your SB inbox for EntertaiNow offer - earn up to 50sbs.

I've had this offer for a while but it's just now showing up for a lot of people. This offer unlocks daily and you can earn 50sbs and sometimes more if you time it right. Click on the video (where it says "click for content"). Scroll down. It's not the picture at the top. Let the ad run. For longer ads you can skip the ad when it says you can. You'll get a pop-up telling you the reward has been unlocked. Click ok. Refresh and repeat as long it keeps crediting. When you don't get the pop-up after the video, it's done for the day. Good luck and I hope everyone gets it!

P.S. Do NOT delete this inbox offer if/when you get it even if it says expired. It will unlock daily.

Edited to add: If you don't have the offer in your inbox, try this link:

http://www.swagbucks.com/g/l/bevn22

It typically only stays unlocked for an hour or so per day...

Try this one: www.swagbucks.com/g/l/tztaxr

Or this one: www.swagbucks.com/g/l/pnsvqt

Additional things I have discovered:

Every single video won't credit. If it doesn't credit, try it again. It will usually start crediting again.

Once it does actually stop crediting (usually between 40 and 50) clear cache/cookies. Or switch browsers.

You can run these in multiple windows. I'm not saying you *should*, just saying it can be done. ;) One person was bragging about running 40 windows in 3 different browsers. She earned over 2700sbs off of them yesterday. I guess we'll find out pretty soon whether that will get you deactivated since it seems many were running up ridiculous amounts with it today. ::)

In FF you don't have to click on OK on the pop-up when the reward unlocks. You can just refresh the page and it still credits. In Chrome and Opera you have no choice but to click on the pop-up because it won't let you refresh until you do. No idea about IE since my laptop won't even load it anymore. :P

I've found the videos load faster in Chrome and Opera.

P.S. I earned 869sbs from it yesterday. I was running 3-5 windows at a time. Probably tempting fate and I will likely delete this postscript sometime tomorrow. ;)
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on April 01, 2013, 02:05:25 am
Oh, and before I toddle off to bed, the goal meter shows the goal today as 0. Consensus is it's an April Fool's Day joke. I'm guessing since it's been showing as 0 for a couple of hours now, they'll leave it at 0 but who knows. But the worst part is sbs you've earned for the day are also not showing on the meter (maybe that's the joke part). And since I've already purchased my first two $5 AGCs for the month, even checking the ledger I have to do math to see how much I've earned for the day.

No biggie, really, but the SB FB wall is up in arms about it. ::)
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on April 01, 2013, 02:07:56 am
I can't even imagine running 40 windows of this at one time. I'd be doing nothing but clicking windows for hours.  For $25?  Probably not *that* worth it.

I ran strictly in IE yesterday (clearing history/etc. in between), and I've found it loads fastest there for me versus Chrome, and I also get better crediting. It always seems to stop crediting early in Chrome, no matter how much I clear cache. I've never gotten credit in FF, but I just cleared my cache there tonight so I'll see next time I get a chance how it works for me there. Haven't tried Opera, I don't think I have that installed anymore since I had to re-do my computer Feb of last year.

And as Aprille probably already knows but others may not, there's no goal showing in the meter (so far) today and SBs aren't showing up in the meter but they do in the ledger.  Whether there's no goal or not isn't known; may just be an April Fool's prank or they may actually not have a goal today. Either way I don't care, I'm over 100 for the day so hopefully I should be okay...  ETA: I was typing as Aprille was but I'm leaving this anyway.. :D
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on April 01, 2013, 08:49:57 am
This is probably a good day to point out the idiosyncrasies of the ledger since it started defaulting to showing just current day's earnings.

You've probably noticed that when you go to My Swag Bucks, it is defaulting to the Ledger tab and just showing today's earnings. However, the Total box shows your current total. In order to see today's total, click on the Apply button next to the date range.

Full History radio button above the ledger does not work. In order to see your full history you must click on the View Your Full History button *below* the ledger. Then you can filter by date or whatever.

Also, if you've purchased any gift cards today (it's the 1st of the month, peeps!), today's total will likely be a negative number (unless you've earned more than you spent). Either way, you will need to do the math if you want to know what today's total.

Edited to add: You'd think SB might have fixed the ledger before playing this type of April Fool's joke. The next wave of hysterical posts on the SB FB wall will be that the ledger is not showing them today's total and if/when they figure how that it does, they'll be screaming they have negative sbs. ::)

I was about to get 47 from a search this afternoon, but when I tried to type in the the 3 letters that it required, it wouldn't take anything and then the window crashed.  I was in Mozilla Firefox.


Oh that sucks.

I'm getting it to work in FF by running 5 windows at once. After those credit I clear cache/cookies and do it again. But I have to close the tabs and start all over again. Refresh will not work.

I've also switched browsers to Chrome and Opera but clearing cache/cookies doesn't work after getting the first 5 to credit unless I go to another browser first and then go back to them. Weird. But I'm up to about 60 right now. Oh, and I'm closing Chrome and Opera in between tries there but I'm leaving FF open.

Going to continue with FF as long as it will credit.

I'm at 135. I'm opening 5-10 tabs per browser at a time, clearing cache/cookies, switching to another browser, rinse, repeat. I'm using FF, Chrome, Opera. Leaving FF open all the time. Closing Chrome and Opera between uses.

Not sure why I just can't use FF all the time but two rounds in a row seems to be the limit unless I go to another browser and come back.

Very strange...
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Betsy the Quilter on April 03, 2013, 07:55:37 pm
Maybe its because I don't have an email and I'm using one of your links, but I got credit for two videos and that's it, no matter what browser I use, no matter whether I clear caches, close windows, whatever.

I was thinking the same thing. But it wasn't too bad once I got in a rhythm.

I've been getting it daily until yesterday and I don't have it again today. Sometimes I've really had to hunt for it. But it never showed up yesterday and several people posted the same. Some had it on PL for 14 but I didn't. So you might look there. I hope it's not done. I enjoyed those 9sbs per day.

BTW, it does show up on PL occasionally for various amounts and if you get it on PL and RO, they will both credit.

It would take several attempts each time until it finally took. Not sure what the problem is...

Okay, I went to PL to look for the coupon offer. Still don't have it but I did find this:

***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

worth 26 - Peanut Labs

RVing

The offer takes you to travelvacationUSA dot com. Click on one of the banner ads. Fill out the first page (this one requires physical address). Submit. I checked at this point. No credit. So I filled out the next page. It's just a brief questionnaire about your interest in RVing. Got credit when I submitted this page so I closed out of step 3. It may have credited before filling out the 2nd page if I had given it time.

P.S. I've done this offer before (2 or 3 times but last time was just a couple of weeks ago) and I'm not sure if I used a different email address this time but it credited so it's all good. :D

About SBTV Mobile on my iPod Touch....we have the youngest granddaughter and I did a little SBTV-M in the morning and in the evening to finish.  And for a couple of hours in the evening, I got a "AdResume" popup.  Not in the morning and not later in the evening.  I wonder if they were testing, or if it's something you'll get a few of and if you acknowledge them, they'll stop?  I'll let you know if I get them today and post a screenshot.

I think the offer may have reached it's quota. When I did it, there was an ad banner on the right where you entered email address, zip and submitted. Lots of people now reporting getting an error message or being directed to something other than HD.

You might try in another browser. Someone just reported getting it to work in FF.

I had a couple of Nestle's videos in Spanish on PL worth 2 each.

Warning: If you get JunGroup videos (I don't have any) but it is being WIDELY reported that some are not crediting. Someone watched for 45+ minutes before she realized they weren't crediting. :o Really?! ::) I *always* check after each video to make sure I'm getting credit.

I *think* (don't quote me) that it's the Betty White video not crediting and Kohl's *is* crediting but I also read the the Betty White video was a Kohl's ad so who knows...

i don't even bother trying when i get the betty white vids, they are too short for the system to catch. 

and i'm amazed someone is getting them for 45 minutes, i'm lucky if i get 5 of them before they expire.

Wizard 101 - 16sbs - game registration but you have to create a character and make 8 or 10 other choices before you get to the registration page - after submitting your info, it brings up a screen where it wants you to click on "play for free" that initiates a download - I just left this page open until it credited which took about 10 minutes

Edited to add: SponsorPay has the Famous Footwear coupon offer for 12sbs. Won't let me do it because I did it on RO.

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on April 14, 2013, 03:19:15 pm
Yeah, 130ish is what I was thinking too.  With 300 available through SBTV, regardless of whether someone actually does it, they may even go higher. Hope not.

I just filed my tax return (had to pay, so waited until nearly the last moment :D ), and found one of the TurboTax offers on SB did *not* require me to be a new user. I went with the TrialPay for 215, not sure if there were others available too. Credited instantly. That's one thing about TrialPay, I hardly ever have trouble getting credited.

ETA: Probably should've waited until tomorrow and the probable high goal, but I don't like waiting until the *absolute* last moment....lol

I'm not going to call it *easy* but I did the Real Age offer in my inbox for 50sbs. It's long and painful (ya know, like a survey) but it did credit right away for me once I finally finished. I did it in Chrome.

Puts me at 537 for the day and I'm going to try to do a few more rounds of SBTV while it's still double credit. :D

I'm right behind you with 523 for the day.  I never did get that 33 from sponsor pay offer but already have 3 spam emails from them ::)

I got bored sitting reading at the desk while doing SBTV after getting 90 -- which is still good, because I hardly ever do SBTV -- and still managed 328 for the day.  And redeemed for my 2nd $15 AGC.  I'm pleased with the day.

I got bored sitting reading at the desk while doing SBTV

I read while doing sb mobile but usually just do sbtv while I am sitting up watching video or doing something else on the desktop.   Yesterday, though, after reading Aprille's and Betsy's last posts about getting more points, I decided to see if sbtv worked well on my Nexus 10.  I think I had tried it one time on my Nexus 7 but must have picked a video that used flash player.  Last night I found out that not all of them do and so, although I was in bed, I was able to continue reading on my e-ink while running sbtv through Chrome on my Nexus.  It's the first time that I maxed out on SBTV and I was able to order my third April $15 card this morning.  :)

The RadiumOne coupon offer is back today. (It never showed up for me yesterday.) And it's worth 14sbs!

Sometimes to get it to show up, I have to do at least one offer (like one of the 1sb videos), exit RO and then open it back up. Then the coupon offer will be in the top slider part of the page. You'll have to page through to find it.

Woke up to goal met thanks to a S&E purchase crediting. :D Perfect timing as we are driving to Austin today with the RV. There is some stupid, er, big motorcycle race event going on this weekend. Hubby will be doing that while me and the dog hang out at the RV. So I should have no problem keeping my swag on as long as I have a decent wi-fi connection.

FYI: there is an outlook.com ad on games that is freezing right before the game should load. Once it freezes, you have to go back to the SB homepage and reload games.The ad starts out with a bearded man with a remote control and a hovering vehicle in a garage. So if you see this ad start, save yourself some time and go back to the SB hp and reload games again.

I had problems with that stuck ad (two different ones, actually, but I forget now what the other one was) when I was trying that Ball Rain game; what a pain. Ball Rain was certainly quick once it got past the ad, but I finally gave up and finished out with Cat Invasion.

Oh, and I was too late for the code; by 2:01ish Central it was expired. But thanks for the alert, Susan, if I'd been around somewhere to see it earlier, I could've gotten it.  :)

I had trouble with Ball Rain's ads in the first round but persevered and got an easy ad that didn't cause trouble for the rest of them. Sure is nice to have the game itself over with in about 2 seconds! ;D

Check to see if you have the Django Social Vibe activity. I had one worth 3 and two worth 1 at the top of the special offers page. Then they popped up on the homepage. I just kept clicking on the 3sb one and it credited for 3sbs four times and then 1sb four more times. Then when I clicked on the 1sb offer, it was no longer available.

Also on the homepage I had a 3sb offer (where you "read" 6 articles) and a 1sb video (the Bedwetting one that's also on RO every day).

Go scrape up them pennies! :D
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!

worth 17 - League of Legends - same as above except email instead of phone number

These both took about 5 minutes to credit for me in FF. I used FF because I have a hard time finding offers on PL in Chrome. I don't get the "show more" offers at the bottom of the page in Chrome.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on April 20, 2013, 09:25:00 am
I have my phone alarm set for the start time of the code. :P

I just replied to a post on the SB FB wall. Some gal was complaining that it was 11:00am and the code wasn't working. Someone replied that it starts 11 PT and it was only 9 PT. So then the gal replies, well, if it was from 9-11 I missed it. Doh! So I nicely replied that it if was 11 in her time zone, the code would begin at 1pm her time.

Seriously, I know I'm old but I learned about time zones in elementary school. Maybe they don't teach it anymore but even if that's the case, SB IS A SEARCH ENGINE. HELLO?! :o

I've known about this little "trick" for a while but never tried it until today. I don't think we've ever discussed it here. Or if we have my eyes must have glazed over because I already knew about it. ;)

After you do all the 1sb offers in RO in your main browser, switch browsers and some of them will pop up and credit again. I had 8 1sb offers in Chrome this morning. Switched to FF and got 4 more to credit. Switched to Opera and got another 3.

Hey, 7 extra pennies a day adds up. :D

I've also seen some post that the bedwetting video on RO credits multiple times but I can't get it to credit more than once per browser. It does credit for me again if it shows up on the hp.

i have to laugh at the time zone issue.....

i was part of a group doing an on-line RPG a few years ago.  it was a vampire setting and the rule was that they could communicate telepathically at sunrise, sunset and midnight....  i can't tell you how many times i had to remind people that Bangor Maine and Paris France did not have sunset simultaneously.

I can't imagine having gotten that much in Amazon giftcards from swagbucks. Last year, it seemed like I spent my Amazon giftcards as quickly as I earned them and didn't really feel like I had anything to show for it, so this year I'm trying to keep a closer watch how I spend them.

Nice haul indeed, Aprille! Congrats, I know you work hard for it.

I don't bother tracking what I spend mine on, but it's probably 90-95% books and the rest music or Fire apps. I rarely use AGCs for other Amazon purchases, instead putting those on my Amazon rewards card at 3x per $1, to earn more AGCs.  ;D

Barely got online in time for the code this morning but I got it.

***EASY SPECIAL OFFERS ALERT***

Peanut Labs:

worth 26 - Register to get 100 Diabetes-Friendly FREE recipes! - simple registration although it does require mailing address, phone number, birth date in addition to email. (Someone on the SB FB wall said it only required email but I couldn't get it to submit until I entered everything.) - took about 5 minutes to credit

worth 10 - Get a $5 gift card towards a magazine subscription when you sign up for Eversave! - email, confirm city, submit - instant credit

Both done in Chrome.

There was also another Big 5 Sporting Goods offer for 37 on PL. It didn't credit for me but I think I used an email I had used for this offer in the past. If you have this offer and have a different email to try, go for it. It disappears after you click on it so you only get one shot at it.

Mine didn't work for several days but seems to be working again although the number is not always accurate. Trying to remember to check in several times a day because some of those offers expire pretty quickly.

Hmmm, in the process of creating another Yahoo email account and my cell phone number is now required. I know I have never provided that before. A little leery of giving Yahoo my cell phone number. I guess I'll go check out gmail. That dang Big 5 Sporting Goods offer on PL for 37 has popped up for me again and I want those 37 pennies!

Edited to add: well, pooh! After all that (I did give Yahoo my cell phone number as they promised to use it for no evil - lol) the cap is met on the offer. Oh, well, one more email to use for special offers. :P

I have a Google Voice account that I use for absolutely everything.  I never hesitate to give out the number because if I get a spam call, I can immediately block that number from any future calls.

I just love the control that I have with Google Voice.  Also, with the Groove I/P app on my tablets, which also uses Google Voice, my tablets have become phablets.   :)

I had six of the 2SB vids, plus the 3SB offer.  My indicator also has been wonky lately, and I'd gotten in the habit anyway of checking periodically for the EnteraiNow vids.  I'm guessing EN must be dead for good since it hasn't been open in at least a couple of weeks. :(

I'm going to have to check into Google Voice. My K7 numbers are dead from non-use for so long. I have a landline number I've been using for offers. It's in a vacant house we own but I have to keep the phone because of the alarm system. I should have tried that. Oh, well, all I ever get on my cell phone is spam calls anyway. I'm convinced AT&T sells it's numbers because I do not give my cell phone number out to very many people.

April 3rd was the last time the EN videos were active and they were glitchy then. But I managed to figure out how to get 333sbs out of them that night. hehe. So that's 3 weeks tomorrow. Still holding on to my links in the inbox although I think I've got them all posted here in this thread somewhere (maybe the first post on page 37 - for some reason that sticks in my head).

worth 10 - RadiumOne

TheFancyWeb

I did the 2-page registration. I don't even remember what all you had to enter - I think email, name, user name, password. No mailing address or phone number.

This gets you to a "get started" page. I left it open for half an hour. No credit. So I clicked on "get started", selected a category and it credited. Done in Chrome.

WOW! Just got home from being out for the evening and saw someone posting on the SB FB wall about a 165sb offer on the homepage for car insurance. Zip code submit and then the usual info. Credited instantly for me after 2nd page submit. ;D

I also had 3 JunGroup videos.

Think I'm going to order another $15 AGC (that makes #5 for the month and puts me at $100 for April). I was waffling earlier today rather to do it or not but with the nice 165sb offer crediting and a S&E order pending to credit on May 2nd plus the April bonuses, I'm good to go. :D :D :D

It's double stuff day again. That's why the 4sbs for NOSO. 2sbs for daily poll. 2sbs for toolbar. 20sbs for games. 6sbs per round of sbtv (my personal favorite!). 2X sbs for all S&E stores (which reminds me, I need to go place my Walmart order).

Special offers not included because they are provided by 3rd parties. I assume that holds true for tasks and surveys but I don't do those so not sure.

I never get the full set.  I got almost all of them very quickly.  As with all the last few sets, I keep getting the same ones and one always remains elusive.  This time it is the one called "search" and that's what I keep trying to do to get it.   ::)

Thanks for the code alert earlier, Susan. My internet was down for several hours but I was able to get it on my phone. :)  I felt like Jaasy -- internet down on the last day of the month and afraid I wouldn't make goal after doing so every other day this month.  ;D  Luckily I was most of the way there already, and now that internet is back, I've got Mobile running to finish it off.

I doubt I'll get the last bill I need either, the 11.  But I did just get a win for 18, so that may have to suffice!

Have you tried switching browsers? I got my game bucks in Chrome this morning. I didn't even have a single freezing ad. It's been several days since that happened.

I'm going to check for the FedEx offer on RO. I like my UPS manager. It would be nice to have FedEx too and get some sbs for it to boot.

I tried the FedEx Manager offer the other day and it didn't credit. :(  But I do like having the similar UPS tracking, so it was worth signing up anyway.

i'm not even trying.  i don't click on things that don't interest me, or things that require a real address.  the new sbtv doesn't work on my work computer, so i'm not gonna be able to get a lot of points with that.

I didn't know they were experimenting with different goals previously. That really sucks.

Not a pretty picture.
So, who knows what I'll be able to manage this next month!

i've NEVER gotten a full month of goals.  i'm lucky if i get 2 weeks, and usually not together.

i've decided that i'm gonna ignore the SB goals and just try to get 75 points per day.  that will give me enough points for my 5 x 5 dollar GCs every month.

That's where I was way back a long time ago; then the SBTV loose marathon brought on so many bucks. But, yeah, now, I'm thinking I'm just back to the 75 per day which will get me $25 per month.

So, you're not alone telracs.

That's me too. Last month was the closest I came, but then got so laid up with a bad cold, that there were 2 days (the 25th & 26th) that I never touched SB at all).
Like telracs said, if I can get 75 per day, then I can get my 5 $5 AGCs for a month.

***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

simple game registration - user name, email, password - I did choose a character and clicked on play (or start or whatever it was) to load the game but just left it open there until it credited - took about 10 minutes - I did it in Chrome

Thanks for the code Aprille,  :)

 with the bonuses posting last night, I'm more than halfway to my second $15 card. :)

Thanks for the code alert, Aprille! I'll have to check those special offers.  I got credit today for an 83sb offer I did the other day, and with the ~40 done at midnight bucks, that puts me over goal...with Mobile still to do.  As with Susan, I'm now over halfway to a second $15 AGC, sitting at 840 right now. :D

I never expect big days, and I sure don't work as hard at this as Aprille does. But somehow I seem to muddle through a lot of days nevertheless. I was thinking yesterday, as long as the RadiumOne coupon offer stays at 20 and can be gotten every day (or even just 23 days), that's a $5 AGC right there! If it stays at 20, that is....lol.  Or if it stays at 20 plus games at 10, every day for 30 days for both, that's two of them! Just something to think about -- if one only has a little bit of time, even doing those two things can get you some reward monthly. :)

:(  It's always in the rotating thingy at the top of RO, when it's there; I've never seen it down in the 'body' of offers since they changed the format.  You might have to check throughout the day, I don't know if it's a comes-and-goes or limited-offer kind of thing (although, at midnight bucks, it always takes about 30 minutes before it shows up).

If it's not in the "rotating thingy", play a video for "one" as Aprille suggested, then refresh, it usally shows in the "thingy" then...

worth 52 - SponsorPay

MyNewPlace

it's a simple registration with name and email - I did it in Chrome and it took 20 or 30 minutes to credit (wasn't really paying attention) - I don't remember all the steps but you do have to click on Register/Log In at the top of the page (I think it was after picking a city) - leave the page open until it credits - I used Chrome

I found it today but, unfortunately, it requires a dowload of a coupon printer which I won't do.  I avoid all downloads and even the toolbar extension.   :(

I'm still waiting for MyNewPlace to show up.

I don't do downloads either, and I try to avoid physical addresses, so I guess I'm losing out on a lot of opportunities.

I stopped doing FB allows too, because apparently even after you delete/dis-allow the apps afterward, they can hang on to the information you gave them, and FB keeps track of all apps you've authorized somewhere, and I just don't want all that. (Even though I recognize that it's probably no big deal, haha.)
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Susan J on May 07, 2013, 08:13:37 am
The physical address doesn't bother me as much since I haven't noticed a huge increase in junk mail.  Actually most of my snail mail is junk mail.    :)

I am choosy about the FB links even though it's my Bichon's fb account.   ;D

That coupon printer download is the same one you need to print any online coupons - coupons dot com or individual websites such as Prevacid, Purina, whatever. I've had it for years with no issues but I like to use online coupons. But I certainly understand the hesitancy to download.

I've also quit doing many of the FB allow offers. I feel like the games are "safer" than the ones that want you to sign in with FB. I will *not* do a sign in with FB offer. And I pick and choose the games but I haven't even done one of those in a while.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on May 07, 2013, 09:32:11 am
I set up a FB account just for SB long before I set up my real one, back when you could get away with not using a real name and such. Pretty much the only info they can get from me is the email address I use just for SB anyway, I never filled out anything else. I don't do *every* FB offer by any means, and I still delete them when I'm done, but I don't worry about it like I would if I used my real account.

And like Susan, I've not noticed a big increase in junk mail from using my home address on some offers; mostly only the occasional insurance offer and a few others. I can tell what comes from SB because I don't use my full name on SB offers.

I don't ever do downloads, but the printer software didn't bother me after Aprille vouched for it and Norton also showed it to be safe and popular.

But we all have our places where we prefer to limit things, and that's perfectly understandable!! It's not worth compromising if you're not comfortable. :)

Got the BoxTops offer, thanks Aprille. Didn't have MyNewPlace when I looked earlier and now I can't even get into SponsorPay.

I keep meaning to ask, I presume the Super Rewards tab disappeared for y'all too? It went away for me sometime last week.

If anyone wants the FedEx Manager and hasn't done it yet, there is an offer for it on PL for 68sbs. It credited for me in FF before I even finished the registration process. Some are posting on the SB FB wall that it didn't credit in Chrome for them so that's why I did it in FF.

Thanks for contacting Swagbucks customer support. We recently were testing a customized daily goal. That way you would get a chance to earn higher amounts for your daily bonuses. However, we have stopped the program at the moment. Your account will begin receiving standardized daily goals like before. If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know.

I just installed in on my android phone to check it out.  It looks just like sbtv app and the login is the sb login.  However, it only increases in levels of 10% (pink meter bar helps to remind if one is on this app v. sbtv app.).  After 10 videos one gets only 2 sbs compared to the 3 using the watch sbtv on the browser.   :(   One can ff on the video but there seems to be an ad after each and I noticed that the last one which I was watching to see how many sbs I got was a video over 4 minutes.

I'm guessing there are two 4sb codes left, if Aprille's report from FB of 20 total is right...

I just loaded it on my Fire (thanks Carol!!), and have it running now. We'll see how it goes! I'll likely just let it go, like I do with Mobile, rather than babysitting it to fast-forward and such (other than watching to X out of ads if needed, like with Mobile occasionally).

I have uploaded the file to my DropBox account and here is a link for anyone who wants it:

Do you run the sbtv mobile app on the HD? Did you have to side-load Flash to be able to? I'm thinking about upgrading...
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on May 13, 2013, 08:54:38 pm
I do run Mobile on the HD also. I'm not sure if I had to side-load Flash to run it, I did happen to side-load Flash for websites (using Dolphin and Chrome, not the Amazon Silk browser) so it's hard to say whether Mobile would have run without it or not and I can't remember now which got installed first. I *think* I installed Mobile and ran it okay before putting Flash on, but I won't swear to it.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!

Okay. Thanks, Steph. I've got instructions on how to side-load Flash on the Fire HD so I just need to bite the bullet and upgrade.

Thanks to that huge search win, installing & running EntertaiNow on my Nexus tablet, and 2 long basketball games (during which I maxed out SBTV Mobile app, ran SBTV constantly & starting running EntertaiNow), I've been able to gather enough SBs to put me back to my measly effort to achieve at least 75 per day to get the 5 $5 AGCs for May.

And I'm back in town and settled for the rest of the month, so everything else will be gravy!  :D

Cool! The little or the big? :)  I rather like the big one, I probably wouldn't have updated for the same size.

Even though I'd had the Fire before, in addition to our own Fire forum, I picked up a few tips at this website, esp. for an app to make it more like an Android interface instead of the carousel (the one I'd used on the original Fire didn't work on the Fire HD) and using wallpaper (ditto).

Hey Susan, how many SBs did you get from the EntertaiNOW app? The blog post said 26, but I'm seeing in comments to the blog post that at least some folks are getting 50...sweet!

ETA: Actually, I can at least verify if it goes over 26 here in a minute, I just looked and have gotten exactly 26 already...and yep, the meter is still running rather than "limit reached".  So perhaps the limit *is* 50, just like regular Mobile?

ETA: Facebook comments are suggesting that SB may adjust ledgers for over 26 but nobody knows for sure...

I don't remember going through *quite* that many steps shown, I think I used instructions from somewhere in our Fire forum, but got the same result in the end (and did put on the Dolphin browser first, in order to get Flash installed and 'activated').  Hopefully this will work for you!

If anyone's online or gets online after a bit and has some time to spare, there's a couple of tasks that are super easy and paying out major SBs - I just got 380sb in 40 minutes!

There's a 4sb-per-task offer called "Choose correct relations between characters in book stories" that (unless they fix it) starts repeating the questions/answers after about the first 10-15, and so makes it easy to zip through. I got the 380 from this one.

There's also an apparently similar 2sb-per-task offer called "Choose correct relations in fact triples on book characters" that I haven't even started yet.

Sweeeeeeet!

There's also an apparently similar 2sb-per-task offer called "Choose correct relations in fact triples on book characters" that I haven't even started yet.

Okay, I got 198 transferred plus another 16 banked from this one. They actually credited in a mix of 2 and 3sbs, transferring 22sbs at a time consistently, possibly coincidentally because I started the first one with 8 in the bank, and after that they credited at 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 16, 19, 22 -- so 6-3sb tasks and 2-2sb tasks per 'round'.  Someone else might credit differently if they start from a different 'banked' amount. :)

Great day, I'm at 678 and haven't done Mobile or EN (EntertaiNOW) yet!

I got 50sbs for yesterday from the EntertaiNOW app leaving it running overnight and another 4sb for today. It must have done a force close or something at that point because my Fire was off when I got up this morning. I've got it running now and the sbtv mobile app running on my iPhone. They've updated the blog to say that you can earn 52sbs per day with the new app. Weird numbers - 26 & 52 - whatever, I'll take 'em!

Aprille, I ended up with 44 on the EN app before the 'midnight' turnover. I wasn't running it while I was doing the other midnight bucks stuff and the tasks, then I napped for a few hours. Now that I'm up again, I'm going to run EN on one Fire and Mobile on the other and see how that works...  ;D

Many reports on the SB FB wall of the EntertaiNOW app maxing out before the stated 52sbs. Mine maxed out at 36sb but that's better than nothing. Hopefully they'll get the kinks worked out soon.

And I managed to earn 160sbs off that task this morning that you mentioned last night, Steph. I hadn't done tasks in ages but there was some chatter about it this morning so I gave it a whirl. Glad I did.

Oh, and I'm looking at the 8.9" Fire HD, Steph. I agree, no need to upgrade if you don't get the bigger one. Trying to decide between wi-fi and 4G. Which do you have?

Hey guys, sorry to possibly make you repeat yourselves, but I'm just now human again after being quite sick the past couple days... This EntertaiNOW app -- is it for Android only? Or is there an iOS/Apple version? (I'm guessing not, since I saw some chatter about it being related to Flash.)
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on May 14, 2013, 10:15:04 am
Aprille, I hadn't done tasks for a long time either (I keep forgetting, for those ones that come out at certain times), so I was happy to see the chatter in the wee hours about this 'special' task and get the lowdown!

I have the 4G, although I never have gotten around to activating the actual AT&T account yet to use 4G. But I went with "better safe than sorry" with regard to being able to have 4G available if I need it; after being at my mom's for 3 weeks last May where wi-fi wasn't available, it reminded me that not *everywhere* has wi-fi on demand! :)

Kristan, sorry to say that the EN app is indeed Android only at this point. :(  Hope you're feeling better!!

I see replies from SB on the FB wall now that the limit's only 26, there was "confusion between departments" and the 52 given as a limit -- and excesses over 26 -- were errors.  ::)

That's the way I'm leaning too. We travel so much and even with places that have "free" wi-fi, the connection sometimes sucks. Although I'm concerned about the data limit (I assume there is one) as these apps eat it up. I haven't researched it that far yet.

I thought I would always be a Kindle Fire advocate but even though I was delighted enough by the first Kindle Fire to give another one as a gift, I find that after experiencing the Nexus 7, I can't imagine ever getting another Fire.

I do have numerous Kindle e-readers so my tablet needs do not include books.  I find that I use Amazon Prime video (not much) on my ultrabook or other larger screens so even though I am such an Amazon advocate, I don't have the need for complete integration.  On the other hand,  I use so many of the Google products, including Chrome, gmail , voice and drive that I absolutely love that intergration.  Google NOw is just superb.  I gave the Fire to my husband and I know he is looking forward to the day when I upgrade either my Nexus 7 or 10.

I put Entertainment Now on an old Android phone that I use for the SB sbtv mobile since both require so many permissions  >:(

I don't know how may I got on Entertainment yesterday since I was just checking it out and since it hits the ledger the same as the mobile sbtv, but if I am counting correctly, I have 49 hits for 98 sbs today with both maxed out.

Yeah, that's why I chose a 3G model when I got an iPad mini. I had an iPod Touch for awhile, and though it's a great little gadget, it drove me bonkers that anytime I really needed internet (like to look up directions when I was lost) there was no connection.

****EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

worth 10 - RadiumOne

Wheel of Fortune Slots

game registration - user name, email, password (this is a GSN game and my 2 most common user names were taken so I'm sure we have registered for GSN games before - I just tried to pick an email I thought I may not have used yet and I guess I lucked out)

credited instantly in Chrome

Thanks for the SP offer for 12, Steph. Just did it and it credited. I love those!

FYI - the meter on regular sbtv is advancing at 30 seconds or less (rather than 45 seconds) so if anyone wants to rack up some rounds today, it would be a good time to do it before they change it back.

Post by: Steph H on May 15, 2013, 07:34:39 pm
Unfortunately, there's already some major damage from prior parts of the storm. There's currently a mile-wide tornado near a fairly populated city called Cleburne, just south of DFW (the county just to the west of me, so the system at least is headed my way!), and now there's another one potentially developing that would track towards downtown Dallas if it pans out. :o

Looks to be a busy night. The storm in Cleburne had weakened slightly, but now it's strengthened again, the tornado warning reinstated, and the warning now includes the southwestern half of my county.

I may disappear from the computer for awhile, depending on which way it moves....
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on May 15, 2013, 09:16:03 pm
Estimated 10 tornadoes in the greater DFW area tonight, so far, though I think they're not really expecting conditions to create any more. Still under a watch for another couple of hours, though, and still lots of storms in the area. I've only barely had rain and lightning at my house, and the storms to the west seem to have broken down some and are mostly moving southish of me, so I may not get much after all the hype!

Thanks for both, Aprille!  Yeah, Granbury area is where the deaths were. Photos coming out of there are awful. I saw one on FB where the house is completely missing, just the slab foundation left. Lots of mess in the area. I got lucky that that particular cell ended up going mostly to the south of me, and I didn't get any of the red/yellow bits of the radar (to put it in a recognizable perspective).

Check for Jun Group videos. I've gotten 16 X 2sbs today in 2 separate batches. Check above your ledger or this link: http://www.swagbucks.com/?cmd=gn-jun-frame&cardid=-1

Easy special offer - PL - 24sbs - Wizards 101. I did this on on RO a while back but used a different email this time. After you submit your info, leave the page open. Don't click on the "play for free" button on that page. It downloads the game. (I think you have to click on a "play for free" button on the landing page to start the registration process.) It took 10-15 minutes to credit for me in Chrome.

I was just coming to post the Jun vids; I got 17x2 in one batch just now. I've gotten 2 or 3 in dribs and drabs over the past little while, but that's the first big batch in awhile.

I'll check for Wizards, thanks.  I got 16 new emails on outlook.com yesterday...some additional aliases on my existing account, and a whole new account with 10 new aliases attached as well. ;D

***EASY SPECIAL OFFER ALERT***

worth 24 - Peanut Labs

See clearance prices from local car dealers.

This is the iMotors.com offer which I think a few of us did a few weeks ago on RO. You choose a couple of vehicles to compare and then it does required mailing address, a phone number in addition to an email address. After submitting info I left the page open until it credited. I wasn't really paying attention how long it took but I think it was about 15 minutes later when I checked the ledger and it had credited. I did it in Chrome.

Yeah, searches worked yesterday, but are apparently down again today. They were down beginning at midnight bucks.

And I also have to login to begin the EN vid each time, but once it starts, it runs flawlessly. Mobile has behaved suspiciously well of late also, with few interactive ads requiring attention...which means I just jinxed it. :P

I never did get iMotors to credit from RO so hadn't bothered trying yet from the PL offer. I've seen it in SponsorPay too. Perhaps I'll try, try again.

I've got two search wins now - 10/10 - got 'em about 45 minutes apart.

And there is a coupon dot com offer worth 11 on SP (different picture - offer name is Coupons.com - Printable Coupons). It credited in 10-15 minutes and I had already gotten credit for the one on RO earlier this morning. You just have to "print" one coupon like on RO.

Yay!  I was *finally* able to get this one for 47sb today!!  It had showed up several times since Aprille first posted it on the 6th, but when I'd click on it, would show as "max number met for the day" or would go to some other site. But it worked today, and credited within 5 minutes.  Woot!

worth 45 - TrialPay

Megapolis (iPhone app)

First iPhone app offer I've done/completed. I've always been leary of giving out my cell number but I did it. And it credited once I launched the app. Filter for "free" on TP to find it.

I did try another iPhone app offer on TP first. I filtered for "new". I can't remember the name of it but I entered my cell phone number, got the text, clicked on the link and it told me offer no longer available. >:(

I guess now I'll see how many spam calls I'll be getting. Not that I don't get plenty already. I'm convinced AT&T sells it's numbers.

ETA: the iPhone app offer that said no longer available was Priceline.com

I saw someone else report this on the SB FB wall earlier. I didn't have any but I finished before 10am CDT. We all knew it was coming. I just didn't think they would get it implemented so quickly.

Oh, well, on the bright side, I haven't had to "interact" with any ads on the iOS sbtv mobile app in a while. But then I do a lot of replaying vids (skipping ads) and FFing. (http://www.smileyvault.com/albums/CBSS/smileyvault-cute-big-smiley-static-012.gif)

Oddly enough, I've found that running Mobile and EN apps on my original Fire (Fire1) result in far fewer, even zero, interactive ads than on my FireHD. (There, now I've jinxed myself but good!  ::) )

Saturday, I ran Mobile on Fire1 and EN on FireHD.  I had no interactive on Mobile/Fire1, and LOTS of interactive on EN/FireHD.

Sunday, I ran EN on Fire1 and Mobile on FireHD.  I had no interactive on EN/Fire 1, and LOTS of interactive on Mobile/FireHD. I finished EN/Fire1 first and switched Mobile over to Fire1...where I then had no more interactive ads.

Today, I ran Mobile on Fire1 and EN on FireHD.  Again, no interactive on Mobile/Fire1, LOTS of interactive on EN/FireHD.  Finished Mobile/Fire1 first, and switched EN over to Fire1...where I am having no interactive ads.

I don't know what's constituting the difference, but it's definitely there.

I've had it for a few weeks. I was in the original test group and we weren't suppose to discuss it on social media. Shhhh! ::)

Just take my word for it. It SUCKS! There are so many "cards" on the homepage that I can't find the special offers and videos. It's spammed with "watch" (SBTV) cards and coupon cards. And when you scroll down the page, it keeps loading more cards (like the Sponsor Pay wall) which drives me crazy!

Hate it! Not that that will change anything. ::)

Interesting. Thanks for sharing. I was wondering why some were getting the X on the EN app and I wasn't. I was thinking maybe it was regional. Apparently not.

I've been running the EN app on my Fire1 and haven't had a single X since I started running it on day one (a week ago today).

I run the sbtv mobile app on my iPhone4 and I haven't had to X out of an ad/screen in ages although I do occasionally get an ad that truly freezes and I have to click "done" and go back to the homepage and load another ad/video. Although I do take advantage of FFing and refreshing quite a bit so I'm not sure how many times I might get an X ad/screen if I let it run on it's own.

I run them both at the same time. Takes about 2 1/2 hours letting EN run on it's own while I sometimes FF and refresh on sbtv mobile while multi-tasking with other Swaggin'.

Steph - I just loaded EN onto my original Fire to test out your successes. My other Android device I was using was my Nexus 7 tablet.
Since En started, I was playing it on my Nexus and SBTV Mobile on my Fire. After you jinxed things ( ;D ), SBTV Mobile continued to run flawlessly on my Fire but I had to X out of every ad on my Nexus7 for EN.

So, this evening I sideloaded EN onto my Fire and switched the programs I was running on each device.
Now EN is running flawlessly on my Fire but I have to X out of every ad in SBTV Mobile on my Nexus7! I even force stopped the app & rebooted; still having to X out of every ad.

Go figure.

UPDATE at end of evening:
So, My original Fire completed the EN SBTV Mobile vids without any problem - NICE.
After it maxed out on the EN vids, I shut down my Nexus7 & started running SBTV Mobile on my Fire for the remainder of the evening. It played the SBTV Mobile also without a hitch.

It will be interesting to see how things go as the days progress. But for now, I'll work on running either app on the original Fire as long as it will run without glitches.  ;)

Another "trick" I've been using the last few days. I kept reading about people getting the bed-wetting (Health Guru) offer on RO to credit multiple times in the same browser. This is the 3rd day in a row I've gotten it to credit 20 times by clearing cache *only* in between viewing. Just leave RO open in one tab, clear cache in another. Go back to the RO tab and click on the offer again. Be sure to go to page 2 where the video is located. While multitasking I have forgotten to do that and it won't credit until you go to page 2. Takes 8-10 seconds to credit.

Also today I discovered the Oseteoarthritis (sp?) offer credited 5 times when clearing cache. Not sure if that's daily or not but 20-25 extra sbs per day is pretty sweet. :D

Post by: Aprille on May 21, 2013, 09:24:39 am
I have another "trick" to share. The inbox offer "Let Us Entertain You" where you watch 6 videos or read articles to earn 3 sbs. Click on one of the videos/articles. Go back to the offer page. Refresh. The check mark appears. Click another video/article. Rinse, repeat.

This only works when it's in your inbox. It doesn't work if it's on the homepage.

Curses, foiled again!!  (http://hansenastro.com/shakecane.gif)  Doing it for me too, running Mobile on Fire1 while EN runs on HD. I didn't *mean* to jinx it for everyone, or myself, was just trying to help out.  *sigh*  No good deed goes unpunished, eh? :P

And I too got the invitation for the new home page, I'm supposed to have it today but nothing looks different.  Maybe later.

Thanks for the tip on the bed-wetting slide/vid, Aprille, I'll have to try that! And the tip on the 3-for-6 offer. I usually multi-task when doing that one but sometimes I forget to go back to it.... ;D

All 3 worked awesomely.  Got 20 for the bed-wetting and 5 on the osteoarthritis. I was actually already working on the 3-for-6 offer when you posted, but it worked fine for the last 2 or 3 I still had to do. :)  Thanks!!

Like I posted earlier, the new hp sucks. I've had it for a few weeks. But you don't have to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the links for blog, twitter, etc (although all the annoying cards eventually do stop loading). They're also on the left side of the hp. First is the daily goal, then to do list, then invite friends and under that is stay connected where all the links are located. But have no fear. I'll be camped out in front of the computer tomorrow. :)

You can get two searches - dubs/doubles -  now if you try.  That's known as 'the gates are open', when dubs/doubles or trips/triples are available.  :)

When it happens at midnight bucks, you can usually get dubs, sometimes trips, within the first hour (usually less, but at least within then).

Yeah, I wish every code extravaganza was this easy...and this much SBs!  Two left, for 12 and 13.


I was about to cash in for a $15 AGC and then that would leave enough now for all 5 June $5 AGCs...but then I figured out that if I get just 100 SBs each day between tomorrow and the end of the month, I could cash out now for $25 and should just be at enough for the $5's. Maybe short a little but close enough to get the last one by day five.  With the EN vids added to Mobile and bits and drabs, it should be doable.  Cool!

That's very cool, Steph. :) I have enough for a $15 AGC but just barely, so I would still need to earn the SBs for the 5 $5 AGCs for June so I'll probably just keep on working on that. My AGC balance is low right now because I just bought graduation gifts for my daughters (one graduating from high school and one graduating from college) using my AGCs. It sure helped me a lot for that. :)

Play the game. At the end you get a pop-up to share your score. I canceled out of it. No credit. So I clicked on the FB icon below the game. Got that pop-up. Checked my ledger again and it had credited so I canceled out of that pop-up too. So not sure if it was just slightly delayed of if clicking on the FB button triggered the credit. Either way, it was an easy 22sbs. :D

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: telracs on May 30, 2013, 09:23:08 am
okay, i need an intervention.....
bit of background:  i work from noon to 8:30 pm Eastern Time.  And as some of you know, I can't access too much on SB at work these days due to firewall/browser issues.  And I don't get up early. So, I'd been struggling during the day to get some searches and surveys and then staying up late to try and make goal.  But I've found what seems to be a better way...

instead of staying up until 1:30 am my time then getting my 8 hours sleep, i decided to go to bed early, set my alarm for 3:15, do about 90 minutes of SB, then go back to sleep.

This has worked for the last 2 days, but i'm thinking it's a stupid idea.

Thoughts?
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Susan J on May 30, 2013, 09:52:23 am

Thoughts?

No way would I be doing swagbucks on your schedule.  I'm retired and on line a lot in the mornings and early afternoon so it is something that I have in the background.  Even so, I sometimes wonder why I spend so much time on pennies but then I know that I see it as a type of video game only sbs instead of points.   ;D

I think that getting up in the middle of the night to do swagbucks would be detrimental to your health in the long run.  If I do happen to wake at night and feel like reading, I do run swagbucks on another device.  I find that glancing over or tabbing over while I am doing something else to be an easy way to get to goal.

If swagbucks were to disappear tomorrow, I know that in one way, I would breathe a big sigh of relief that an exterior force broke my addiction.

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Kristan Hoffman on May 30, 2013, 09:57:06 am
Do you have a device that can run mobile SBTV? I think that's probably the best way to get consistent SBs without TOO much effort on your part... I definitely don't think it's worth disturbing your schedule like that (not long-term anyway) for the equivalent of $15 (or even $50) per month.

telracs-
You might consider acquiring an iPod touch or Kindle Fire, then. You don't necessarily need the latest model (older = cheaper!) and you might even be able to earn one through SwagBucks itself, haha. It would just need to be able to run the mobile app, which mostly takes care of itself. 50 SBs each day!

Plus the iTouch and Kindle Fire have other uses, of course. ;)

And telracs - I understand the compulsion to try to get those SBs. I feel *guilty* when I don't try for them. But I would never try to get up in the middle of the night just to get some bucks.

"Like" the TravelBig FB page and then enter the sweepstakes (email only).

I've got this to credit 3 days in a row! I had to use a different browser and email each time. You might be able to get it to credit all in the same day. Give it a try. Hope you have it and can get it to credit multiple times before it expires.

YAY! I should have mentioned this one earlier. I got another 180sbs out of it today (30X). It's definitely regional and I saw someone post they got it in Albuquerque and obviously, Houston is another part of the promotion. Susan, did you get them today? I've earned 420 off of them in the last 3 days. Sorry for those not getting them.

I've never had to switch browsers. I get them all in Chrome. Sometimes I have to refresh the homepage 2 or 3 times between but if it's going to keep popping up, it does.

I do almost all of my online shopping with Amazon, and the categories for SBs or cash back at my other S&E place, Ebates, are always so limited, that I forget to check. And some of my other online stores, I get better deals using an instant offer like TrialPay (for Old Navy, for instance), unless a special is going on in S&E.  So I don't use S&E much.

But I did do a Wal-Mart S&E a couple of weeks ago through SB, so I'll have 185 SBs coming around the 20th. :)

Also, the McDonald's offer is finally showing up for me!

Yay Kristen!  Still no show here.  It must be because, you know, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area has no McDonald's....  :P

I got the 6CB a bit ago, so now have the 6 & 8 also. It'll likely be the 16 that I never get....

Didn't have the War Thunder offer on SP but will keep an eye out.  Missed the code.

Cool!  I just got trips, but it was a non-CB 9. Weird not to have all of those 'regular' amounts converted to CBs like usual.

I had such a good run of getting SBs towards the end of the month and here the first couple-three days, that I was not only able to cash out my 5th $5 AGC today (being still considered "Monday" for SB purposes), but also for a $15 AGC!

Yup, they definitely fixed (or didn't provide for us) the multiple multiple mega multiple wins on this one, I maxed out at 5 also. Clearing cache and changing browsers didn't help.  But hey, it's still 30 I didn't have before and maybe it'll come back later or tomorrow. :)

Here's what it shows in the ledger, so it's definitely an area-based activity:

Special Offer: SVN: McDonald's- EWD Q2'13 Dallas-Fort Worth

Thanks for the heads-up, Aprille!  Oh, and I did get the latest Hangzhou offer on SP too!

Post by: Aprille on June 04, 2013, 04:07:05 pm
YAY, Steph! Glad you got some out of the McD's offer!

There are 1sb videos available on RO. Finally. But when I went to check them out, I saw the coupon offer is down to 3 with a different picture for it. I did it earlier today for 7 but went ahead and did it again and it credited. Bummer. I hope it's not down to 3 for good.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on June 05, 2013, 01:03:31 am
Both the 7 and the 3 offers are there this morning, separately.

For the 1sb vids, the 'surviving your child's bedwetting' offer that requires clicking to a second slide is still crediting 20 times, and the fish-a-day/psychiatrist offer is still crediting 5 times. I didn't see the osteoarthritis that was there previously that had also credited 5 times.

I also had McD again, but only got it 4x. I may have missed one during a browser malfunction, though. Are the rest of you that had this offer early, still getting it?

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on June 05, 2013, 09:52:06 am
I have not seen the McD's offer since Friday.

I had both the 7sb and 3sb coupon offers this morning. That would be sweet if that hangs around for a while.

But only one 1sb video. No bedwetter or any of the repeating ones. I'll check back later.

Oh, and I've gotten the Encrave offer to credit 6 times today. Still not counting toward the daily goal but SB says they're still working on it to credit for the daily goal in the future. Not sure what's so complicated about it but I'll take the extra sbs. My guess is once they "fix" it, it will no longer credit multiple times.

I had gotten the Encrave offer 5x in the wee hours, but just refreshed and now have it a 6th time. I'm with you, Aprille, I don't know why it's taking them so long to fix; they're basically the same offer we'd been getting on the homepage before, just with an official 'name' to it now.

Don't forget, bonuses should be posted today!

I got it again again, too, for 8 times. Even though they take a few minutes to do, it's easy enough to switch in and out of windows while doing other things, so it's a nice 3sb per offer.

I'm surprised they haven't posted May bonuses yet, usually it's earlier in the day.

Check your SponsorPay wall - I had another "Win a Trip to Hangzhou" offer worth 19sbs. I hope they keep these coming!

I'm surprised they haven't posted May bonuses yet, usually it's earlier in the day.

SB has posted on the wall a few times (in replies to posts which is my least favorite way of them conveying information but after 3+ years, I given up hope they'll ever change ::)) that they are "working hard" on getting the bonuses posted by midnight PDT.

I just checked and have the latest Hangzhou offer, but I'm going to save it since it's only 1-1/2 hours until new day. Maybe it won't disappear. :P

Yay for surveys! I hardly even try anymore though I did get a 12sb on PL a few days ago, one of those TV commercial things. I remember when those were worth 60...  *sigh*  I still need the 12 and 16, whatever the two highest are; I got stuck on a run of 5 or 6 searches in a row getting the 6CB over and over again before finally getting the 10 today.

Post by: Steph H on June 06, 2013, 04:20:43 am
Bonuses did indeed post before the end of the day, yay.  And I got the 12CB, so now I only need the 16.

Oh, and I've gotten the Encrave offer on the homepage 12 times. Others on FB reporting multiples as well, though I didn't see a number in the posts I saw.  So keep refreshing to get it again, until you don't get it anymore!

Susan, i agree that EN has been working pretty well lately (after those 2-3 days I had trouble getting it to open, it ran fine), but I haven't wanted to say anything and jinx it. So if it doesn't work right tomorrow, I'll blame you. ;D

I've got a list of short videos for EN that you can make favorites and just run those. I did it for the first time today and it took about 2 hours running completely on it's own.

I also have some new tips for sbtv mobile. But packing up right now for an overnight trip. Will try to post more later once we get settled in the hotel.

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on June 06, 2013, 01:44:21 pm
Okay, all settled in at the hotel in beautiful Deer Park TX for a high school graduation tonight in an outdoor stadium in mid-90 temps with high humidity and possibly even rain. ::)

If anyone likes the EN short clips list, I can get a list of short clips on the Android sbtv mobile app too. I just find myself doing both at once (EN on Fire and sbtvm on iPhone) so I fast-forward (and replay on sbtvm which skips the ad on the iOS app) so I'm done in a couple of hours anyway while doing other swaggin' on my laptop.

I've recently discovered that on the iOS sbtvm app you now only have to watch 1 second before you can FF and get credit. It use to be 8 seconds. I think (haven't really tested it) that you still need to watch 4 seconds on the Android apps.

Over the weekend I did an experiment with EN. I babysat it constantly and finished in an hour by just FFing thru the videos at 4 seconds. There were many times when ads did not load between videos, sometimes 6-8 videos would load without an ad. I'm not sure if this was triggered by FFing but it sure made it fly by.

Okay, those are my SB app tips for the day. 8)

Too bad they don't appear to have made it retroactive to include already-completed Encrave offers.  Although I don't need them for goal, I'm sure there are those who do.  I had it 12x earlier, but haven't seen it again.

Thanks for the EN/Mobile tips, I've never tried the favorites thing (don't think I even knew it could be done). I usually run them at the same time on my Fire1 and FireHD, and without babysitting other than to X out when needed, they take just about the same time to do, couple of hours or so. I'm usually doing other things online at the same time so it's no big deal.

Have fun in Deer Park. My favorite great-aunt and -uncle used to live there before they passed.

I just had my 13th show up.  It did indeed count toward the goal.  It's now entered in the ledger as: 

Activity: Encrave Activity

The others have been renamed that as well (rather than 'undefined'), but the 36sbs for the 12x I did it earlier today still aren't in goal, so who knows if that will ever get fixed.  There's also a new "Activities" item in the pull down sort menu on the ledger, similar to being able to sort by Special Offer, Searching, etc.


ETA: Just realized when I refreshed the home page to see if #13 counted towards goal, it showed up again!  So there may be a run of 'em available if y'all check.

Oh, well. I don't really have much time to deal with it this morning anyway. We'll be packing up and heading home here in a little while. Maybe it will show back up when I get home and actually start crediting for me. ::)

Sorry y'all had trouble with Encrave this morning, but I'm glad it seems to be fixed.  I got it 12x in the wee hours before I finally had to go to bed, looks like it's still there on my HP to get more though. And thanks for the ctrl-click tip, Kristen!

I appreciate the tips. :)

You're very welcome ladies! Just trying to spread the wealth. 8) I just wish we all had the same offers at the same time. *sigh*

I have the Encrave offer back on the homepage. I'm doing it in Chrome. On round #4. The best method seems to be refreshing the homepage in between times. Seems if I just click on the same card a second time, it doesn't credit. I figure if/when the card doesn't pop back up on refresh, I'm done anyway.

No Encrave for me, but I got this Jun group video for the new show Graceland 15x (which is 30 SBs) so you might wanna check for that. Mine was on the daily poll/NOSO pages.

And it just switched to a Despicable Me 2 promo, so I might get some more out of it...

I think the higher $ ones take a little longer, too. On Thursday I got 4 of the 5 $5 AGCs already, but I didn't look to see if one of them was the last one ordered [just checked, the last one ordered is still outstanding]. But even when I order say a $5 and a $15 on the same day, I always get the $5 first and the $15 a few days later (seems like they mostly distribute prizes on Sundays and Thursdays).

Got the code while I was still in bed. LOL! I checked on my phone when I woke up around 7:30am CDT. Thanks for the alert, Susan!

Just had a new kind of Encrave offer on the homepage. Got 12X the 3sbs earlier this morning. This one was 2sbs for 4 videos but the format was different. Instead of the green "go now" button, there was a big pink triangle/arrow next to each one. One of them was The Fosters video. It asked for my gender and birth date and then gave me a message that the video was intended for a different audience. But I left it opened and it credited. *shrugs* The pink trinagle/arrow greys out when the videos credit instead of having a check mark light up and there is still a bar that fills up at the top of the page.

ETA: Also, one of the video/article/offers was Radio Loyalty. You can listen to online radio for 20 minutes, enter a captcha and earn 1sb. Not sure if it will credit multiple times but you might want to test it. If it works, you might save the link and see if it works later. I have a link saved from February when some of us got this offer on the homepage or in our inbox and it still credits but I don't use it anymore. It slows down my computer too much.

Same except I ordered my $15 on the 30th (it credited overnight). But the gift cards have been posting out of order for 3 or 4 months now. Even if you've ordered all $5 AGCs in the first 5 days of the month. People on the SB FB wall freak out about it every month when gift cards from the beginning of the month start crediting. :P

Yeah, I saw some mention of this last night on the SB FB wall. I just checked mine and I have 10 sbtvm credits and only 2 EN credits and I've been running it for 45 minutes! ACK! I lost all my favorites somehow. I guess I'll take the time to re-mark them because it was going much faster with all the shorter clips.

Also, the collector bills have been extended through today since it seems like the search engine was down most of the day yesterday. I still need the 16 and my first search win this morning was another lovely 6. ::)

Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Aprille on June 12, 2013, 06:58:29 am
My goal is 100. I have seen a few instances lately of some have a different goal but it doesn't seem to be as widespread as it was before. Not sure what's going on with that.

Be sure to join a team to have a shot at a bonus. Glad I saw someone post about it before I got too far into earning today. They've included sbtvm (but not EN) to help earn points for your team. I'm on Team Dad.

http://blog.swagbucks.com/2013/06/dads-vs-grads-team-challenge-the-sequel.html

Encrave seems to be wonky this morning. I got it to credit twice. Then it popped up with just one video which checked off but that was it. I think it was one of those that was suppose to have 4 videos. Then next time it said earn 1 sb for each of 6 videos (I was like cool!) and when I clicked on it, it said offer no longer available. Now it seems to be working again (3sbs for 6 videos). So don't give up on it if it wonks out on you.

Have you been able to get any more, Susan? I managed to get it to credit 12X in between the wonky ones that wouldn't credit or said unavailable. Unfortunately they're not counting towards the team goal. Someone from SB posted on the wall that they are suppose to and they're looking into it.

Thanks Aprille.   :)

Looks like most of this thread is on team grads.  Dads are in the lead this morning, though.   :P

Grads are winning now... (http://hansenastro.com/smarty.gif)


I'm sure it will change often, until one team or another dominates like usual.

Did you see the cheater we had on the Dads team? He finally got removed today after having over 1900 points which is impossible. We put up a big stink on the SB FB wall last night and more people started talking about it again today. SB finally checked into it and shut him down about an hour ago. That's one of the reason the Grads score jumped over the Dads so much. But I'd rather win fairly than have a cheater on our team.

I probably won't maintain my status on the leader board. All I really care about is reaching 400 points for the extra 100sb bonus. Shouldn't be a problem since I'm at 363 now. :D

Those HealthGuru videos on RO have really been paying off the last couple of days. That's where a lot of my points came from. Now I wish they would fix Encrave so it counted towards the goal. They still didn't count when I got them earlier today and I got it 12X so I'm probably done for the day with them.

Yes, the 400 point level for bonus is my aim too.

Currently in 7th place on Team Dads with 664pts. Darn if these contests don't bring out my competitive nature. LOL! Didn't have little miss bedwetter this morning or I would have more points. Maybe she'll show up later.

Yeah Aprille, I saw you moving up on the leader board and taking the dad team to the lead.   :)

I ordered my 3rd $15 card today and have 276 team points so I guess I will easily make the 400 level.
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on June 14, 2013, 11:46:26 am
You guys are doing well. I've got 134 points at the moment. I could make the 400 level, I think....even a 75 bonus for the losing team would be nifty. Too bad the Encrave vids don't count as a Special Offer. :(

On the home page, click on the dad and grass block right over the goal meter. It takes you to the overall score page and your score is listed on the right side  :)

Thanks for the reminder of today's code, Aprille, got it.

I'm up to 260 points in the challenge so I think I'll make the 400 okay before the end. Been getting some good runs of Jun vids.  I don't think I've ever seen a closer challenge between teams, every time one gets ahead by 2k or so the other one comes back. As I type, dads is only 121 ahead. Usually, one pulls ahead pretty quick and stays there.

Aprille is number six on dad's leader board and I already have my 400  :)

Steph, I'm doing about the same as you. Hopefully we'll both get to 400. :)
Susan and Aprille, way to go! How do you get so many? I haven't been maxing out on SBTV or SB Mobile because I just haven't had time, but I'm thinking you Power Swaggers must be doing a lot of something else...Are you doing surveys or what to get so much?

I am not in the same league as Aprille.  I never do surveys but I do run the two mobile apps to the max.  I use an old Android phone and just let them run as long as they need and recharge the battery when both are finally finished.

I also run the sbtv apps and there have been a lot of Jun videos lately.  :)

Do you run the mobile apps simultaneously with SBTV? I have been doing them separately and it seems to take forever.

I don't do regular SBTV, but I do try to max out the two Mobiles when I can. I haven't as much the last week or so but if I could do that, the 400 should be in the bag! :D

I got a new computer on Thursday, mostly with SB AGCs (woot!), and it runs soooooo much faster than my old one. I can whiz through things now! ;D  Been spending time getting it set up though.  Just about done.

It's nice to be able to have something tangible like that as a result of sb efforts.   :)

I got my husband a chromebook because he was so tired of Windows updates , etc.  That and his kindle fire make him a happy camper  ;D

New toys iz fun.

Except that after getting things set up, I've run across a weird thing. I was still running my 'old' computer on the big monitor while setting up the new one on an old small monitor. I've now switched over...and ran across something strange. On the new computer now, with Firefox, I can't log on to SB. The buttons that normally pop up to fill in the info don't work.  They worked when I was setting it up on the small/old monitor, but now they don't.  Strange strange.  The buttons work fine in Chrome, but not FF.

Anyone have a link that gives a plain screen for logging in to SB? I don't even know if such a thing exists...

Dads is starting to pull away now, I think, at roughly 6,000 ahead as of this posting.  Ah well.

On the plus side, I'm over 400 points now so I'll get the big bonus, whichever amount it ends up being (75 or 100). :D

i learned something with the home page videos this morning (the jun ones)

i was getting a message that said "something went wrong..." and was closing the video.  but then i accidentally clicked watch another and it fixed itself....


and i have also topped 400 in the dad/grad thingie, so BONUS!
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: gadgetgirl003 on June 16, 2013, 05:02:23 am
I just made the 400 point goal too. It looks like we all are making the 400 point goal. YAY!!! :)
Asa for the Dads being so much ahead of the Grads, I'm okay with that. 75 sounds great to me for the challenge. I like the way they did the rewards on this challenge. I think it is very fair.

I thought everyone was so busy with the Encrave sbs and I haven't seen a code for days.  BTW, my Encrave stopped crediting for me today. 
Title: Re: Swagbucks 2013!
Post by: Steph H on June 20, 2013, 06:00:37 pm
It's been vewy vewy quiet.  Encrave has been crediting hinky for several, according to FB. As far as I could tell it was crediting okay for me, but I didn't check after every one. I got very tried of getting the "are you SURE really really SURE you want to leave this page?" popup on all the EntertaiNOW pages on the Encrave vids, though (using Chrome).

I haven't seen codes either, though I did just see mention on FB that made it sound as if there was a code earlier today. AND it sounds like there may be multiple codes tomorrow, I see a post from SB answering a question that also says " how would you like extra codes tomorrow?"  Nothing on the blog that I can see, though.  OH wait, they made a post on FB about 15 minutes ago too, that says "Who wants to celebrate the start of Summer tomorrow with extra Swag Codes throughout the day?"  So, there ya go. ;D

I was beginning to think that the thread was broken or something! LOL

Three days without a post is a long time. I'm vacationing this month from swagbucks again; I should say vacationing from the goal meter, I do my usual.  But having to play a video 3 minutes or more for 1 sb isn't worth my time; just finished the Lucy Kincaid series so I was tied to that for a few days!

Where is Betsy?  Haven't seen her around in quite a while...
