Hi guys pleased to meet you all.

I'm new and was wondering if it's safe from getting account deactivated if we use adblock for SBTV Mobile.
Canadians can't use SBTV Mobile, so I doubt many of us are in a position to answer. You're probably better contacting SB officially through their help, asking on a US forum or on the US SB FB.

Ah, I thought the way he spaced it meant he posted it from his mobile and not that he was asking about SBTV Mobile. Yeah, I don't know about SBTV Mobile and ad blocker, but regular SBTV is fine to use Ad Blocker with.

It's pretty easy to get around country restrictions with regard to apps, at least for Android phones it is. I believe the App you need is called "Market Enabler"

Thanks for the suggestion, but installation is not the issue. I guess I should have been more specific: Canadians can't get credit for watching SBTVM.

Install, yes.
Watch, yes.
Credit, :cry:

I thought it was a GEO-IP restriction but even with a US IP that meter just never increments. I suspect that if you signed up as Canadian then you just don't have the option to earn SBTVM credit. Would be a nice easy 50 SB every day! :mad:

And don't even get me started on Jun Group videos...! :evil:

I did a redemption for $50 for PayPal on friday and the e-mail said the money will be deposited in 10-14 days. Has anybody ever gotten the stuff deposited before the time mentioned?

my recent experience with swagbucks:

ordered $25 paypal, one week later, the "order status" showed "under review". after three weeks, it still showed "under review". I sent them an email to ask the reason then got the follow reply:

"Your account has been flagged for SBTV and Search irregularities. To keep your account in good standing, please refrain from using any unauthorized viewing or searching methods.

Any pending prizes are now approved and your account is now clear to redeem prizes again, but your account will be monitored to make sure it is in compliance with our Terms of Service."

anyway, my account is clear now. maybe i am lucky? :lol:

BTW, I don't think I violate any rules. never use script.

Consider yourself lucky. Congrats!

SB can cancel/de-activate any accounts with no clear/uncalled for explanation. They can say you have multiple accounts in one household, illegal use of search engines/bots, illegal use of bots for SBTV, etc. These circumstances may be true but anytime one redeem a big amount of SB for giftcard (in your case), the account would be under SB watch. As rule of thumb with SB, people don't accumulate sb, redeem as soon as possible. They also cash out the codes/certificates ASAP for fear of account deactivation anytime.
