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.
Doesn't Amazon.com collect duties for all items sold or fulfilled by Amazon.com and shipped to a Canadian address however small the purchase amount? I've been automatically charged duties by Amazon.com for fairly small purchases, ie. less than $20 but I remember that they partially refunded the duty after purchase.

I don't see Spins link. SB adds up my spins wrong, missing 3 spins.

Update: I see link now but my spins are getting less (another 4 less). LOL

Swagbucks is worst than the Scrooge during Christmas

"Swagstakes entries" are a scam, they should just remove it from the wheel. I don't even think I can participate since I am from QC anyways.

Anyways, can someone tell me how to "Complete Your First Daily Goal"?
I won't be able to finish the board anyways, referring a friend + gaining SB is too hard, seems like "X" will be the best I can do easily...

daily goal is the meter you have to fill at the top of the page/header. Earn xx SB & get x sb.

I like this kind of SWAGO (with Spin&Win). More chances to win SB and Double SB for searches. I know Swagstakes entries are useless, but I prefer this type. It's my 2 cents.

They should just replace Swagstakes with 1SB.
I got excited a few time about the 2500SB but got 3SB x3 instead.

Soooooooo frustrated with this SWAGO. For the first time in ages it looks like I'll be able to complete this type of SWAGO but I'm stuck on "Complete a Gold Survey From Swagbucks on Mobile Web. I can't get a dang survey on mobile web to complete!

Not sure of this but I think you have to use the SB Answer app to get the survey block complete. I can't do Gold surveys at all.

I'm so frustrated with Gold Surveys.

Had a 2X Survey Swag Up and spent 20 minutes doing a 100 SB survey. At the end it seems like I fully completed it and get a strange page that says something like "survey complete" but no SB! Spent 20 min for nothing and lost out on 200 SB!

Yep, that is annoying.
What I also hate is doing a 20 min survey and get disqualified 10 mins in...

Do you have any examples of the free shipping items to Canada though? links

I to use a cross border service, but that was because duties and shipping to Canada has always/usually been high.

To finish is quick. Refer yourself, sign up on your mobile phone data, then just so a search (it gains the points), then just close afterwards.
