@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Shop & Earn:
Before you buy ANYTHING online, check and see if you can get Swagbucks for your purchase. Click on the "SHOP" tab on the homepage, and you'll see Shop & Earn.
There are a few shops featured but you can expend the list by clicking 'View All shops', or just do a search for what you are looking for.
You pretty much get at least 2SB for every $1 spent, but it varies by store.
From what I've read it takes 32 days to receive your swagbucks so take a screen shot of your receipt and set a reminder to check you got your credits.

It says the coupons can be printed once/day, so I don't know if the cookies are an issue? Or are you referring to multiple times/day?


Some of these have daily quotas? I usually do my SB stuff at night, since I work during the day. I haven't noticed fewer encave options at night, but I can't say I've paid much attention to it, either. Since I'm not working Friday, I'll check it out Friday morning and see if I get more offers.

Oh, and which games are you talking about? Not the SB games...are there RO games? I'll have to check those out. In fact, I think I need to check RO out a bit more...it sounds like there are a lot of recurring daily opportunities there that I am missing?

Thanks!
-Mike
Usually 1 SB vids and coupons.com will be on RO only in the morning. RO 1 SB vids are gone by about 9am, with some others showing up throughout the day and especially in early evening when new offers tend to appear or others reset. Once you print (or pretend to print) from coupons.com through RO, it disappears, sometimes returning about 8 pm, but if you do it in the evening, you can't do it again the next morning.

On the SBs FP under the DISCOVER tab, you will find a link to SBs coupons.com. You can print from here all day, but the limit is two of the same coupons from one computer (that's a coupons.com thing, not SBs), but you can print more of the same from other computers. Coupons you print from this link are encoded with SBs info, so you get 10 SBs for each coupon you redeem, but it can take weeks and weeks and weeks before you see credit.

Sometimes there are games you can sign up for on RO, and they go fast, but if you sign up, play the game for a minute or two, you get credit. Some credit on sign up without having to play.

ETA: On RO, don't forget to close out the white sign up box that pops up on coupons.com after you choose your coupon(s). I find I don't get credit if I forget. Sometimes if I don't get credit, I go back and choose another coupon, and get credit.

Be sure to close out the signup boxes that pop up on some of the RO 1 SB vids. If you don't, the video won't play, and no credit. I'm finding the Chemotherapy video that only credited if you clicked to page 2, hasn't credited at all since the beginning of July on all three browsers.

Also, there are a couple of games on RO, but they have been over quota for several days. I did catch them when they reset, but never got credit for either one. "Wargame 1942" and "WarTune".

07/10/13 Special Offer: SB Offers: Usell 450 SB

uSell offer was in my Inbox and it was instant credit! Yahoo!

I've done this on other walls, and it sometimes credits, sometimes not. I've never seen it this high though, so glad I got it. Keep a look out for this one. Did in FF.
Dang! I deleted this. Won't make that mistake again! Frown

Quote from freemailman1800 View Post :
Beware a 36 SB survey on PL about fragrances. After completing the survey, it scams you out of your SB by saying it's over quota. Wish I had checked FB before doing this one.
I've noticed a disturbing trend on PL. Lots of surveys let me get to the end, and then give me only 1 SB - or they let me get almost all the way to the end and DQ me. It fries my backside. Mad TS are far more reliable.

Quote from Scirocco View Post :
In what way do you implement print preview? For the coupons.com offer I have only been able to get this to work by turning off the print spooler service before I click "print". I tried doing a target coupon offer the other day which conveniently uses a different printing app, but nothing i tried there worked (stop spooler, pdf print, print to one note, etc) Are you somehow having your printer default to print preview?
I have my printer settings set to default 'Print Preview'. Go into your printer settings to do this. It only works in FF and Chrome. Even with this setting, for some reason, the coupons still want to print in IE, so I rarely use that browser. RO displays wierdly and with far less vids on IE as well. I go to it last to see if I can find one or two 1 SB vids.

Well, I got home early yesterday, and I found I had a couple more Encave offers. I don't know if that coincidental or not, but maybe there's something to it. There's definitely a lot more SBs I can earn...I just gotta go through it (thanks to MistyQ for some good tips)

Anyone know how long it takes for the SB Mobile application videos to credit before I can move onto the next one? I know with SBTV I wait until the video has played for 30sec before I click to the next one (usually credits between 15-30 seconds), but I think the SB Mobile is different. Sometimes there's an ad, sometimes there isn't. I usually wait 30sec, but I'm curious if it can be shorter.

Thanks

I've done so many surveys this morning I'm losing track, but I did one by "Smarty Pants" on TS, and I think it was 75 SBs for a 29 minute survey, and wanted a female child's participation. It might only have been 50 SBs, I forget. Anyway, it wanted both parent and child's opinions on various toys, games, etc, and warned there would be a lot of screens. EGAD! It went on and on, and ALT+ was somehow detected, so I had to manually click every screen. Finally finished a good 29+ minutes later. It was one of those I wanted to bail on, but had too much time invested, so I kept going.

I just went over to PL,and clicked on a 48 SB survey. There it was again, Smarty Pants. This time I clicked on a son's participation to give it a little variety, and then thought, no, I can't go through a half hour of this, so I set out to get DQ'd. The format was slightly different since this was boy's stuff, and I was able to ALT+ the whole column that I was unfamiliar with every single brand on the adult's and child's two screens. Then I get a screen saying I was almost finished. I answered a few questions and was shocked to see it credit for 48 SBs in less than 5 minutes. laugh out loud Don't know if this would have worked in TS, but if you see Smarty Pants, you might want to give the shortcut version a try. The long version is tedious, and not worth the bother, unless you need the SBs.

I did the same survey last night, and chose a boy 10 years old and didn't have too many brands to deal with.

Girl was 10, boy 8. I think 12 is the oldest box you can check.

PL has a 144 SB survey about GEL manicures. The questions are all about having your nails done in a salon, and they want to know if you've ever had any bad reactions to GEL nail polish. I chose OPI as the brand of polish used, and said I never had any problems. The survey went so fast I thought I was getting kicked because I said I didn't have any bad reactions to the polish. Very quick and an easy 144 SB! bounce

For the U-Sell inbox offer is anyone worried about the disclaimer at hte bottom "Swag Bucks can be revoked up to 60 days after you accept the initial offer if you do not send in a device. Must be your first time completing this offer. For help contact SB Support."

So you might get your SB right away but then get them revoked after they prove you never sent in your device. I am not sure if I want to risk getting the points taken back and put on the naughty list. I already get captchas on every search and TV win.

SLickCate said she did this offer several times at different values, and she didn't report any revocation of SBs. When you think about it, the offer is worth $4.50. That's not enough money to make me do an offer if I was uncomfortable with it, especially if like you, I had captchas all the time. Some people seem to fly under the radar, and others make it on to the SBs sh!t list. We read about it daily here, and there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason as to why certain people are singled out.

I've done lots of offers that threatened to revoke SBs, and so far (knock wood) it hasn't happened, but that doesn't mean it can't.

THANK YOU for this one! I probably would have missed out if you hadn't posted, since I'm busy with other things for a bit. It was so easy and took just a few minutes.

Glad you got it! It's nice to get a fairly high value survey that only takes a few minutes. I wish there were more like that! nod
