For a while now I only manage to get one search win, usually 4 or 5 but occasionally higher numbers.

Where do you input your birthday? I don't see it in the Settings.
When you signed up I think?

Anyone else waiting for Amazon.ca gift cards? Redeemed for a $25 one 9 days ago and haven't received it yet. Just redeemed for another one. They have usually paid the same or following day for me.

Just got both of them :)

Most recent one for me took a bit longer than usual (3-4 days).

I've been cashing quick on these $25 cards. I expected this promo to end after July 1. Had I known it would run this long, I would have waited to get a higher $ card to save more SB.

Thanks, I'm glad you mentioned this! I'd assumed the promo was over and was sitting on a bunch of points, redeemed them just now.

I noticed tonight that ToolbarTV is rewarding 3 points after 25 videos instead of 20 like it did before. Weird watching the meter increase by 4% at a time rather than 5%.

I uninstalled the swagbutton the FIRST time they pulled that crap - I remember when the max. was 150 SBs, and it was obtainable

they're getting worse, that's for sure!

Thought about it and just uninstalled mine as well.

Everyone else should do the same to let them know that this is crap.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

I enable the Swagbutton for Swago only, then leave it disabled it the rest of the time. I just find it annoying and kind of intrusive for some reason. I play ToolbarTV in a separate browser and poke at it from time to time because it gets 'stuck' a lot.

I don't mind SB has this Code event every week, but absolutely shouldn't increase the goal because of this event. This is suppose to be optional participation, if they add to the goal, it is not optional anymore.

Also, whoever software team write the code for the "Watch", the entire team should be layoff. The "Watch" keeps using more browser memory as it continues to run. You cannot even do anything when you use "Watch" in that browser as time goes by. Even you close the "Watch", the memory will still being held in the background until you close the entire browser. Sometimes, I need to clear cookie to prevent the problem coming back. The "Watch" to me is like a computer virus keep eating memory. This problem has been existed since Day 1. If you use "Watch" in Chrome, you will feel better, but you definitely feel the issue when using it in Firefox.

Any video watch from SB do NOT worth my time anymore. I remember SB said the increase in watch from toolbar was only temporary. Now it is getting even worse.

I have no idea why SB continues to use flash which consider as old fashion of technology now. Everyone is using HTML5 which has more control. SB is wasting resources to implement those unimportant feature like those button claiming the rewards/SwagUps. The main problem is that SB has couples of different ads from the Watch page and they are all using flash which may cause "page frozen" or "slow loading" or "page crashing" at the worst case if the main page doesn't handle it properly. It is even worst if the memory is not released once the ad is done.
