    I have my standard answers for most surveys. Who will know how much I have to invest? I just put the same amount every time! The surveys they offer fill up more quickly now since there are so few surveys for more participants. I look up the offers and see if there is an easy sign up, but those are far and few in between. 'The other day it said 3 min survey, but I timed myself and it was almost 10 mins. It seems the amounts paid on the surveys are getting lower. I qualified for one today but could not fulfill the requirements they had listed. After screenshots that I emailed to myself still did not work, I will not worry about it. It was an opportunity to earn $3 a month but I will survive without it. It is just a struggle to earn my first goal each day. Still I am grateful my referral does the wonderful job she does and it helps so much each month.

    Just a reminder to apply your January bonus points on your Swagbucks account. For January, I earned 160 points. It was a tough month for getting surveys completed. Many of them timed out with the max capacity message and others just said I did not qualify. Several days, there were no Peanut lab offers at all and very few surveys to attempt. Let's hope things pick up in February.

    This morning SB had a 2 (two) point survey that made you update all your personal information. They should have been more generous than 2 meager points. So far, I have printed out $33 in gcs for February. It just stinks that they take almost a week to get you the gcs you ordered on the first of the month. I ordered another $5 cvs card today.
    Yesterday, I completed a SWAGO board for 25 points. It was the best I could do since I was not purchasing the $50 gc that they had as the center box.
    It has been tough qualifying for the higher payout surveys. I just completed one about dog food and the Westminster dog show, but did not get any points. Let's hope the fact that it told me I just completed it means I am in the running for the higher payout. Time will tell if I get credited for my effort. I will check emails for any updates since the Westminster dog show it next week.

    Jasmine, I think I've gotten 1 survey so far this year. I may have 8 surveys available (of varying times and points) and of those 6 ALL will have the first question be wanting our total assets, another will be the one that starts out "We have some questions for you" and another will be a different one that I know from trying will lead nowhere. I do the few free points every day, try the surveys and that's it for SB these days.

    I was using Topcashback for a good bit during Christmas but somehow missed the part that it takes 4 months to get your rewards. Ridiculous - forget that. So I still do the majority of my shopping through SB and that gets me some points because I do shop a lot online.

    Renee, I do not even bother with the "we have a few questions for you" surveys, the ones for 60 points and have a purple dot . I can never get to a survey since it blocks me. If I see a survey without the purple dot, I attempt it. Today, I am home and earned 5 disqualification points, 10 watch a movie trailer points, a 29 points survey about a local newspaper, a search win and earned my to do list points. Now I only have 60 points, ten short of my first goal. I may just run more movie trailers on my phone to hit my 70 point goal.

    Not sure I know about a purple dot. I just checked my surveys again and these are what it showed.

    Oh ok, I thought they were gray (so small on my end!) and I thought that icon meant that survey wasn't eligible for DQ points. Not sure though.

    Never once had a survey told me I rushed the answers.

    I just opened it up to try and everything seems fine on my end. Maybe if you close your browser and start over after clearing your cache?

    Finally, after a couple of weeks of barely meeting my first goal, this morning I spent 10 minutes on a peanut lab survey about opening a checking account and received 182 points. Both goals reached so I am done for today.
