ACCOUNT REINSTATED!!:yay:

Phew! They accepted my apology and reactivated my account. I was able to cash out my $100 to PayPal without a problem. In the future, I am going to bypass my home wi-fi (which SHOULD be secure, but may have too strong of a firewall, and also has the VPN running) and tether my laptop to my phone and access Swagbucks via my LTE. I’m not super tech-savvy, but I *think* that should provide the correct combination of security without violating any rules of their website. I have 50GB of data available every month and I don’t run videos or nCraves. If I want to run videos, I can do them directly on my phone which has unlimited data.
I am so happy for you that you were able to get reinstated, and so quickly! That’s really awesome! I felt so awful for you when you posted yesterday, I know you've been doing this for a long time. I would have been freaking out as well! This is mainly how I fund my Disney as well and I would be super upset if that changed. I’m so glad for you that you’re back and got your SB’s!

    I have an nCrave for 5sb that auto runs. It's 52 videos but only about 30 seconds each, and each round gives 5sb. I'm starting round 3 now. I get the 'are you a robot' captcha when it starts but then after that it just goes by itself. So it's at least 10sb an hour if you can check on it to start the next one.

    There's a collector bill out today, 15sb + 5sb. National relaxation day apparently.

    I think that's all my good news, Adgate is double SB but I'm back to having nothing credit except for the coupon ones. Striking out on RevU too; well I did get the 2sb Outdoor TV to credit, so I guess that wasn't a total bust. This is rough trying to hit 600 for the team challenge. Survey's have been a bust and I keep forgetting to play SB Live. I managed to sneak in on the very last question last night so I got my 1sb for team points. Otherwise, even the suggestions in the team comments haven't been working when I can usually get a couple easy ones from there.

    SB is really irritating me. I used SB to buy tickets off Stub Hub August 6th. Offer specifically says may take up to 7 days to show as pending. Still not showing up. But apparently I cant ticket until 32 days? It would be like 5400 sb. Then my Best buy purchase for my washing machine credited today, but not the 1500 bonus points. It was on sale and in the ad.

    So... I'm on the target site trying to buy a gift card through paypal (with my virtual visa linked up to it) but its saying "PayPal not available" has this happened to anyone else recently? I just ordered one less than a month ago with paypal no problem. I'm a little scared to order through the Shop Disney site since people have had issues and I ALMOST had an issue once where I had to call and verify info or something weird... But now I can't order on Target any more?

    Edit: I called and after waiting/trying to get help for 20+ minutes, being hung up on and recalling I was told that they are getting reports about the issue, have been in contact with their tech team and are trying to fix it and to try again in the morning. :badpc:

Instead of being called Watch Discovery it’s called Watch Culturess.

    First, thx for the collectors bill info, didn’t see that and I got it!
    So myself and DD29 also had the 5 SB thing on the watch home page. We each had it run 5 times, without having to help it along, before it switched to the 1 SB and ran a good part of the day. I was hoping it’d go 5 all day lol but no such luck. First I was worried since it was 5 SB for 66 videos that ranged from like 44 maybe to 30 some seconds. But it went pretty quick so like you said 10 SB in about an hour which these days is pretty good! I’m hoping it’ll be back again today!
    *Oh hey it is back!! And starting at 52 vids / 30 secs.
    Plus, I just got another 15 SB like the relaxation one! Good start to the day before bed!!

    So the other day, at switch over time, I had an old personal fave that’s been gone for months show up for a short time. I thought I had clicked LTG which I get several times a day. But clicked the card and it started auto running and I realized it was that one card on the sponsored page that is titled something like Cool Things Around The World. 1 SB each round that goes pretty quickly and restarts itself! Loved that when it was around before. I think we could even run ncrave at the same time then. It only lasted like 3 or 4 rounds but made me hopeful it’d be back sometime. Totally stumped why they’d bring that back first of all, and then be gone right away.
    Anyone else see that one? DD29 did not see that all.

    Swago next week, they show the board in the Blog post -
    http://us.blog.swagbucks.com/2019/08/go-back-to-school-with-swago.html

    They made the perimeter available without the mobile app, swagbutton or any cash purchases needed BUT still have a couple giveaways included. So the 135sb for the perimeter is reduced a bit depending on how much these entries cost.

    The big push this time is the In Store promotions. If you want to complete the whole board you have to buy one of the products listed. There's maybe 2 things I'd actually purchase but not usually from the retailers listed without having a coupon, which may invalidate the offer. And the offers on those things aren't that great. It'll probably work out good for people who were already going to buy something listed.

    Shame no "Buy SB" square this time. I got a VGC that would have been nice to liquidate :teeth:
    ETA: I'm a dunce, there IS a "Buy SB" square listed. Not sure how I missed that. Here's hoping they do a discount again 🤞

    The 5sb one is back for me. Shows up just as "Stories for you" in the list. I got it to run 5 times yesterday but then it gave an error and all my nCraves except for 1 disappeared. That's when I packed it in. It'll be nice if it'll just keep running even if it is only 1sb rounds.

    I haven't seen the Cool Things one but I don't go looking for it. I don't think it really ever worked well for me. Miss TTG. Haven't seen LTG in quite some time even though I see he's still around some places. Some chatter in the team board about him. I did get TTG a bit last challenge, it was only one or two ads so couldn't do it much. Otherwise my Sponsored Videos section usually just pulls up some of the nCraves. OH, speak of the devil, TTG popped up when I went to check the sponsored page. That's it today aside from the "Sponsored Links by Taboola". Do those give anything? I can't remember if I tried clicking on them but they don't list any SB so I'm never sure if they are worthwhile when they show up.

    Money maker for me at Kroger this morning. Sb In store has 200sb back on sea salt PopChips and they are $1.49 as part of their buy 5 save $5 sale. I was buying other things anyway so incorporated them into my shop. Credited instantly when I uploaded my receipt.

    The Wheat thins don't expire until the 21st, so that should do for me. We eat those constantly anyway.

    Yeah we had the 5 SB. one in the sponsored page, didn’t check the ncrave page, but it only ran 5 tunes. Since then it’s been running the 1 SB one.
    I hardly ever have the TTG one but but LTG us there everyday. These days sponsored almost always has the one with the big blue yellow TV one that I generally don’t run, and then several times a day LTG is there. But when there are no ncrave rhe TV one isn’t there, but LTG is still there sometimes when no ncrave. I generally run from watch homepage not the ncrave page these days, usually all just 1 SB each anyway. I don’t think those weird ones on the bottom are for earning any SBs.

    So the 5sb autorun videos did their 5 rounds and then pooped out again today. BUT, it ran completely by itself! No captcha came up until it tried to switch to another nCrave after the 5th round and that's when it errored out and I only have 2 nCrave options showing. That was an easy quarter for today, hehe.

    I know a bunch of you love that buy SB square, but man I wish they'd do away with it! They started it right as I moved to a state that it's "illegal". Ugh.

    Between that and the dkr 60 SB surveys now being down to 35, it's making even more of SB a bummer lately.

    Anyone have experience with SB crediting for an Amazon purchase that includes both reward and non-reward categories?
    I spent $165 on Amazon; a lot of that was in non-bonus categories, but $99 was for a backpack which was 7SB per dollar. I am hoping they are able to decipher the categories and pay me as owed? The purchase was on Aug. 10 and so far, no pending.

    Did the I can Read offer on adgate for 1152 sb. The credit posted instantly. I have done this offer many times before.
    How long has it been since you last the offer? Do you still have same address etc since the last time you got credit on this offer?
