Exactly how does this work? I see AdscendMedia on Special Offers page. Do you have to login or just sign in with SB login?
You launch it from the Swagbucks website so you need to be logged in.

Running multiple instance of same offer at the same time may lead to account deactivation from Swagbucks.

Thanks to whoever recommended AdscendMedia, running 4x of EngageMe.tv on the computer and 2x Swagbucks Apps (Swagbucks, EntertaiNow, Sportly.tv, Lifestylz.tv, MovieCli.ps & IndyMusic.tv) with my Note 8.
Been averaging 100 SB daily on those alone.

Does the daily goal streak reset every month?

Thanks for the info. I read the "Do and Don'ts" but didn't see anything regarding this, but I guess it is common sense.
I do watch some of the videos on my 2nd screen, but I guess no human watches 4 videos at the same time :P

I thought I read somewhere (here?) that you can have a maximum of 3 devices running the Swag apps.

My main point here is that Swagbucks normally won't specify the limit. However, the compliance team always deactivate account using the word 'Exploit' which implies lots of meaning here. Just use the common sense, if you think it is a loophole, then avoid it to be safe.

Just make sure to redeem the points and claim GC as soon as you can. Loophole can lead to de-activate accounts.

If anyone has a US account and knows by chance which rewards work in Canada as well, Starbucks works.

I don't have a US account but lots of stuff on Amazon.com ships free to Canada. Better bang for your buck than Amazon.ca.

If you travel to the States you can also buy various restaurant, supermarket, etc GCs on Amazon.com. So you are using your SB to effectively buy USD at par.

On the topic of Amazon.com, looks like they are offering 12% off their $25 cards with Canadian SB accounts. At least, I see them.

Has anyone ever bought an amazon.com GC at SDM or Loblaws? Do you pay straight CDN dollars or do they convert it before paying?

Hmmm, most things from Amazon.com charge for shipping, tax and usually collect the duties as well.

Got any examples?

I typically have to ship a lot of my amazon.com purchases to a hotel when I go for business or to a crossborder location for pickup at a later date.

I have bought quite a few things from Amazon.com. Mostly little things and usually only one or two at a time - so I've never had to pay duties. Tax is a given. You can refine the search to only items that will ship to Canada. You will have much more success searching for things that way rather than browsing through the categories. I have in the past used shiptotheborder.com for larger purchases or for things that only ship to US/have free shipping only for US, since I'm near the border. Most things on Amazon have been ok for me though, as long as you don't buy anything crazy. But maybe we are buying different things and I just haven't run into this problem yet.
