    I'll never get my Daily To-Do list complete because I won't download their Swagbutton. But for those of you doing the Daily list Swagbucks has made changes starting today. (I've copied the changes below from their Blog). I don't know about you but I can do a Search every day -- I certainly don't have a receipt to scan every day. Especially since we can't use them on MP after using them on SB. Anyway -- here are the changes:


    our Monday To-Do List just got even more rewarding!
    Posted on August 4, 2020 by swagbucks
    Your Monday To-Do List is getting a makeover!

    Starting Monday, August 10th, your To-Do List will now feature: Upload A Receipt as a replacement for Daily Search. There are three ways you can check off your Upload A Receipt item on the To-Do List

    Earn SB by uploading a receipt through In-Store deals
    Earn SB by uploading a receipt through our Shoply App
    Earn SB by uploading a receipt through Answer on Desktop, the Swagbucks Mobile App or the Answer App

    When you complete your To-Do List on Mondays, you will receive 12 SB — our highest bonus to date!

    As a recap, here’s how your Monday To-Do List will work:

    Answer the Daily Poll: In order to check off this item you need to earn 1 SB from answering the Daily Poll
    Upload A Receipt: There are multiple ways to check off this item. upload a receipt through our Shoply App, upload a receipt through In-Store Deals, or upload a receipt through Answer on the App or Desktop
    Deal Of the Day: Simply click on the Deal Of The Day from the To-Do list to check off this item.
    Daily Activity: A login through the SwagButton or Swagbucks Mobile App will check off this item.
    Daily Discover: Earning at least 1 SB from Discover will check off this item.
    Daily Watch: Earning at least 1 SB from Watch or nCrave will check off this item.
    Attempt a Gold Survey. Earning at least 1 SB from any Gold Survey on Desktop or Mobile will check off this item.
    Complete A Gold Survey: Earning SB by successfully completing a Gold Survey on Desktop or Mobile will check off this item.
    Be sure to save your weekend shopping receipts so you can upload them on Mondays.

    I'm not downloading it either. Just like at MyPoints, I"m not downloading Score, and have 8 out of the 9 done.
    Oh well. It's only additional 2 points one day a week.

    Is there anyone here who DOES have Score or the Swagbutton downloaded?? Is it checked off every day on your To Do List?? I'm still not sure how that works.

    I've noticed there are gas stations on the receipt list too. It DOES give you 3 (or 2) pts if that's all you bought. I've done it a couple times.

    I do my first 10 receipts at MyPoints, and if I have any left over, I do them at Swagbucks.

    Thanks for posting their update.

    I've installed both Swagbutton and Score extensions. I only turn them on to get the check on the daily lists and then turn them off. I always get at least the first level of the daily to do lists on both Swagbucks and Mypoints.

    Thanks.

    I didn't know you could turn them on and off.

    You can in Chrome, click the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner of Chrome, click settings, click extensions. Then click the little slider to turn off and on. You can probably do the same in IE and other browsers but I only use Chrome.

    Not sure if this is related, but I did install the Swag Button extension today, and soon after, started having problems with my 'Words with Friends' game in FB. The game page was hijacked and replaced with a fake contest announcement - Congratulations (company name) customer - you have been selected as a winner and can claim the prize after answering these 9 questions - something along those lines. I've uninstalled the button, but the problem has continued. Ugh. I've downloaded the free version of Malware Bytes, as recommended by a malware removal site. The problem is referred to as Roboverify.xyz (.xyz was at the end of the offending website that was popping up. Doing the scan now - will edit this and post my findings.

    Edited to add: Running the scan took just over 18 minutes, and there were three suspicious files, which I quarantined and removed. I restarted my computer, and launched Chrome, which seems to be running slower. I'm noticing that the ads are not loading on my Yahoo Mail page like they usually do - there's a little grey bar at the lower left of the screen that says "Resolving host..." - curious.

    And the WWF game page doesn't have the usual ads. I wonder if somehow that host server got infected. More curious stuff...but for now, things are working again.

    Still a bit suspicious about that SB button, though....

    That's exactly why I don't download those things. Hopefully you get it taken care of, and things running smoothly again.

    It's because of horror stories like this that I don't download things either. Sorry to hear you're having problems. I hate any techy problems.

    Sorry to hear you had issues. None of that occurred when I installed the extension.

    I’m thinking that the problem is with the game and not the Swag Button. I opened a tab to check how the game page was looking, and encountered the problem again. I ran the free Avast program, but it didn’t detect anything. Now re-running Malware Bytes to clean up - again.
