Definitely breaking the rule. Each computer has a unique id to identify. You can refer yourself but the accounts should run on different computers. I am running 2 accounts, each account on different PC. I don't get greedy and run to max on the accounts. Knock on wood, I have been running dual accounts for years.

Anyone knows / tried to maybe run Watch Videos (on Desktop) 2 sets at the same time ... on the same Desktop computer ...

Is it possible ... or breaks rules .. or?

Example ... to run a set of videos in one browser (say Firefox) ... and run a set of videos at the same time in another browser (say Opera or something similar)?

I am not even sure if computer will run them both like that ... might .... never tried though.

Yes ... I hear you ...

But I was asking about somewhat different scenario ...

Not being in two separate accounts / not running two separate accounts (in two browsers etc) on the same computer ..

BUT ...being (logged in) into the same account ... in both browsers ... and try to run a set of video (watch) in one browser ... and a different set of video (watch) in another browser at the same time ... side by side basically :)

Yes, you can log into the same account on different browsers. Don't run the same (SBTV, smore.tv, videos) on different browsers. I used to run SBTV and smore.tv on Chrome and run videos on Firefox. I used to run them because they used to have auto run, not anymore. :(

Hmm ... maybe I'll give it a try then some time ... just to test it, if nothing else ...

Run two different sets of videos from HERE for example: http://www.swagbucks.com/swagtv

.... in two different browsers at the same time ... side by side (on a split / multi-screen or something like that).

See what kind of lag will be there ... if any :)

There was some kinda survey available ... few minutes ago ... for 29 SB.

So I decided to give it a try ...

First question was to enter first 3 symbols from my postal code ... So I did.

Then survey "thought" / hesitated for few seconds ... and redirected me back to Swagbucks site ... with a following message:

"Not every survey can be a winner. Although you didn't make it to the end, we've rewarded you 29 SB. Survey 33610868."



LOL ... usually when "not every survey can be a winner" ... they terminate you with 1 SB or NO SB .... so that was nice ... haha ... fully 29 SB was given here.

I need more surveys like that, lol ..

P.S.

I did "Search" thingy ... right after getting the above 29 SB ... and got 4 SB ...

So made pretty easy 33 SB in total. :)

Is this new (expiration date with the hour)?

Kind of but it doesn't work. I went to redeem my discounted $25 amazon.com today and still get my 50sb december team challenge bonus and it didn't apply. If you hover over the circle i it says it expires at 12am pst 1 jan 19 which is 1 jan 19 3am est. So it did not credit me and it likely wont credit yours either...

You are right so far, no credits.
Will have to make a ticket...

Swag-ups work by whichever one is expiring first. Having the button there is redundant. New Years Collector's Bill today for 19 SB plus 5 SB bonus. Got mine after a handful of searches.

Unless you want a big hassle, I suggest don't use SB for any Shop&Earn even though the rebate is 100X. They are no longer to honor the illegible purchase from Amazon.ca even though the category is indeed eligible. They blame Amazon doesn't offer them the rebate and so they cannot give you, so there are some hidden rules there. Apparently, SB makes mistakes about the Amazon.ca rebate, but transfer these mistakes to its members.

Besides, other rebates will be converted to US$, so eventually, you earn less. I and my friend already switch to GCR and ebates, will never look back to use SB again for the Shop&Earn even SB offers rebate 100X in the future because 100 times 0 is zero and you will end up getting nothing from the promotion.

Hmm, I am also sick of SB Shop&Earn, thinking to switch back to GCR (I had account years ago).

Yes, stick with GCR for most of my purchase now. Occasionally I will use ebates if there is good promotion and if I make a purchase from BestBuy Canada.
