That's how it used to be for everyone bit now there doesnt seem to be a rhyme or reason for it. I've been doing sb for several years and always just got the 5 1 sb but a few months back it changed to the 5+ for some and 1 for others and no limit. I'm enjoying it while I have it since I know it'll eventually go away.
DD’s suddenly went away yesterday. Now she’s back to the 1 SB for DQs and capped at 5 only.

With offers that give Paypal as a payment option, I always sign up with Paypal and then cancel automatic payments through Paypal. This means that I don't have to cancel any subscription service early but it guarantees that I won't get charged for any subscriptions. So far, this has always worked for me to get the SBs.
Perfect! Thank you!

    I qualified for a 2500 SB survey! It's an online discussion on Monday that is supposed to take 60 minutes. I qualified for one a few months ago and it was really easy and credited right away so I have confidence that this one will be similar. My SB balance is so low right now since we just returned from vacation. I had been keeping it over 2200 every month so that I could cash out for a discounted gift card on the first of the month. Right now, I have just over 1300 SB so no discounted GC yet for the month of November. My next vacation is the first week of April 2020 (Hilton Head) so I have a short amount of time to try and save up my SwagBucks. Fortunately, I only need about $150 in gift cards since I came home from our last trip with almost $350 leftover on my Disney gift card. There is not a lot of "basic" expenses at HHI that can be paid with a Disney gift card so my budget is only $500. I plan to use it for bike rentals and any other resort activities that we might try. We don't usually buy souvenirs and don't eat too much at the resort's quick-service locations. Any additional SB's will be simply cashed out to PayPal and used for gas money or our grocery expenses.

    Made it to level 8 Emerald status today. I have spent too much time and energy swaggin me thinks.... :laughing:
    I'm Emerald, and was pleasantly surprised by one of the benefits this week. I don't shop much through Swagbucks, but I bought something recently. It took a few days for the shop points to go pending, but next to the notice was a link to get them immediately instead of waiting 30 days. Good for up to 1000 SB per month (or 4 transactions, whichever is reached first).

    Haha, this is what put me into level 8! I placed a Kohls order today and claimed those SB. Knocked out both goals for the day and upped my level. Love that benefit!

    Mine switched back too. Bit of a bummer. Also having trouble getting a survey today. Been able to keep my streak going with the apps and one survey while at wde thr past few days. I'll probably just buy a gc today.

    I see a Lola offer that is 2 days only, pay $5 for wipes and get 1500 sb. Went pending immediately.
    It worked for me. It went pending instantly. I am going to try it on the other account now. Thanks!
    I did the LOLA offer a few days ago and I don't see anything yet. My credit card was charged the $5 but I haven't received a shipping notice from LOLA yet. I assume I need to wait until I receive the wipes before I open a ticket, huh? It's 1500 SB, and fortunately, I remembered to screenshot the e-mail with the offer terms so that I have "proof" of what the offer was, including the date, since it was a 2-day special.

    OK 50 rounds of an Encrave for 2 SB? Really? 25 minutes for 2 cents. And a few days ago I had a 2 SB Encrave that went to it's final round with a timer of over 8 minutes! I know it's essentially "free" money, but seriously? Haven't had LTG or anything like it in months.

    I hate to complain and I know I'll keep using Swagbucks, but I'm realizing how much it's really becoming more and more frustrating. Thankfully I have gift cards to buy this month and they normally credit without an issue. Ugh sorry to be so negative, just had to vent. :headache:

    I was wondering what payment option you choose when you cash out of SB? I think I will cash out of what I have pretty soon since I have my birthday bonus SB to use. I am wanting to use this money towards our trip, so would you do Paypal or something else?

    I cash out my swagbucks for Sam's gift cards and then use those to buy disney gift cards with a 4% discount. It adds a little extra value on top of my free money. 😁

    I've also cashed out for Southwest gift cards in the past to go toward our airfare but haven't done that in a while.

    I didn't even think about using it at Sam's club! That is an awesome idea

    I did the Rise of Kingdoms offer - 3500sb on the homepage, higher on some of the discover apps. Had to reach level 18 in city hall in 20 days but it actually credited at level 17 - which is a good thing since I would not have made it otherwise. It is not a bad game but you have to find a good alliance and really play so you can get time speed-ups.

    Also did the Curiosity Stream offer when RevU had double points. The trial points (240sb) did not credit when it was supposed to, but once I contacted RU I got the credit right away. Yesterday I got charged $3.24 (2.99 plus tax) for the month and immediately after I got the 1200SB on my account. CS is still available but for a lot less so I would wait for the next time RU does the 2x SB offers.

    I was so excited this morning, I had ncraves mobile app on when I went to sleep I woke up this morning to being close to the daily goal. It use to time out and say that's all we have to day so I had been using sbwatch its the same yahoo videos. I'm guessing they are getting paid I'm getting an avr. $1.00 for over 8 hours of commercials

    Has anyone bought anything at BB lately? I bought a TV and a Roku player on Saturday (need to get ready for Disney+) and spent just under $150. There was 390 SB that showed up as pending on Monday but now I am eagerly waiting for that 750 SB bonus to show up:rolleyes1...

    ...but on the bright side, the 2500 SB from my "online butter discussion" last night just credited:thumbsup2

    I was just able to find where the bb bonuses are listed on swagbucks. I’ve gotten both of my bonuses credited before my actual points from purchase credited. Both of my bonuses took two weeks to credit but the bonuses never showed up as pending. Hope that makes sense!
