If you run from the phone, then it is different story as the browser engine is totally different. I only see the problem running on the desktop right now using the same browser (even with different channel). If you see there is no credit, most likely it is the same timing issue. I only uses Google chrome to run video as the flash is eating too much memory once I run it for a while in other browser. Running 2 instances is better than 3 if lots of ads are available. I think the problem may depend on the system setting too like the OS. As long as you find a way works for you, stick with it.

That's why I run different channels. If the count is at 5 and there is an ad coming, I watch to see if it resets to 0. Then I check my account to see if it credits. If it doesn't credit, I switch channels. Once it runs well, it runs very well. They usually credit at around the same time, not 1 or 2 minutes apart. I just monitor throughout the day. Today I had an appointment and there was free wi-fi. I checked on my phone and 2 Smores.TV was running well. I forgot to run the third one. There were a few days where I had close to 100 SB. Today, I got 64 and reached my limit. EngageMe is useless. I might get one or two SB when I reach the Smores.TV limit.

Has anyone redeemed SB for Paypal? You don't get a discount like amazon.ca. I assumed that redeeming SB for Paypal would be in US dollars. So when I went to order something from a US site, the money in my Paypal is in CDN dollars. Is this correct?

I used to redeem SB for Paypal (2 years ago). It was in CDN fund, my Paypal account is Canadian.

Careful screwing them by closing the video early. They will probably eventually catch on and ban your account. Happened to me a few years ago.

they used to pay out the $25 in U.S. currency, but I think too many people were posting on their facebook page how great of a deal it was - so Swagbucks realized how much money they'd save by paying us the $25 in Canadian currency instead.

I know of this link: http://www.swagbucks.com/p/prize/28354/PayPal-25 which states you can redeem for $25 Paypal in US funds. Note: use at your own risk since I've never tried it myself. Who knows if SB will allow it or maybe SB will just payout in CDN dollars?

When I went to checkout, I get the message

PayPal rate: $1 CDN = $0.741533521 USD

Lesson learned. I will never redeem for PayPal again.

But if it's not crediting, why can't I close it? You're saying that once I start a video, I'm stuck with it?

I agree, it's such a bad deal but unfortunately there's no other "cash" option available Neutral Face

Heck, I even redeemed $25 Amazon.COM gift card for 2200 points and sold it on reddit at $0.85USD ratio which got me $21.25 USD which got me around $25 CAD. But the hassle of dealing with reselling the card is not worth it.

Anyone been getting anything other than 4 SB or 8 SB collectors bill search wins? I've only been able to get 2 search wins a day this week and have only found those two.

I was getting only 4 SB search wins until recently. I managed to get a 6 SB win on Wednesday and then a 8 SB win yesterday. Through a total fluke I managed to get an 18 SB win today. I seriously doubt I'll even get close to completing this Collector Bill set. SB made the odds of winning really low.
