    Did the points you get increase from 10 to 20?
    I actually put in 15 (I just went back to check). I know that I was afraid that it would not work for me. I've had days when I could not get a single watch to work. Of course I have over 100 this week. I just never know.
    I only did 2 full list completions, because I don't do those receipts & I never know if I'm going to get those watch activities
    Oh well, I got 200 points, and am happy with that.

    I only said it would make goal 5 days - I have seen how a lot of things just don't work. The watch didn't work for me until late last night. I have to say, I was happy to see it work.

    Don't forget about the Watch videos on their FB page! I never have any problems with them, and it's 10 easy points every day. Most of them you only have to watch/wait is 28 seconds....the longest is 31 seconds. They count towards the challenges and Daily Goals, too.

    "Everyday Receipts" is on there as well.....and you can use a receipt from gas stations! Everyone uses those! lol

    Yea, there were more points awarded if you set your goal to 20; don't remember how much though. I rarely have a problem with the watch playlists. As of right now, before I've started doing anything this morning, I have 114 of them already credited on my challenge. I'll click on one of the links that keeps playing videos, mute my computer and turn the monitor off, and just let it run while I read, or do chores. I check it now and then to see if it's still running. Eventually, it quits and I close it out. But I usually can run it a couple of more times each day.

    And as 3lilpigs said, you can do the "everyday receipts." All you have to do is take a pic of them with your smartphone if you have one. It works well, as long as the receipt isn't creased or bent or something.

    I've never tried the receipts. I guess I'll give those a try - thanks for that info.
    I probably went in increments of 1 and didn't reach 20 (lol). Once I saw it didn't go up, I went back to 15.

    I've never looked at their FB page. I had no idea about the watch videos on there. Thanks for that bit too.

    I had to go through a ton of surveys today to get one to credit. And it was a low point Peanut Labs survey. I tried a bunch of those, too, and even though they'd say I qualified, when I got near the end it would say I didn't meet their demographics. They ask those questions up front, so I don't know why they wait til I answer most of their survey before they DQ me. So aggravating!

    I have been having trouble with certain survey sites. There's one that in which the video won't load in which you have to select what animal you hear and see. And there's the one with the circling dots (opinion surveys?) that never loads. I always use Firefox, and today decided to try Microsoft Edge. They both loaded in Edge, so it must have something to do with my Firefox browser.

    I clicked on a peanut lab survey earlier that was for about six points and it took me to a Pop Rewards survey. There was no way I was going to spend all that time on pop rewards for six stupid points, so closed it. Now, I just got a 15 for 51 and assumed it would be Pop Rewards. I answered all of the stupid choose four items, etc, then instead of taking me to a survey, it took me to a swagbucks page to join. What the heck?

    I've had a similar experience in the past - instead of returning to MyPoints, it goes to Swagbucks. Really frustrating when they can't keep their programs separated.

    They responded to a Help Ticket that I sent the other day for a receipt that wouldn't upload.
    I wasn't sure which receipt it was, so I clicked on the image link that I sent, and it took me to Swagbucks! WTH??
    Why would MY image link for my receipt, take me to Swagbucks??

    I thought it was just me and I don't even have swagbucks, never registered or anything.

    Tuesday Tips: Why Does My Daily Goal Keep Increasing?

    If you are consistently achieving your Daily Goal, you may have noticed that the threshold for completing it can vary from day-to-day and that it has increased significantly from when you started doing it.
    This is by design to keep members active and engaged so that they can earn Points and get rewarded quickly and frequently.
    Two things to keep in mind regarding the Daily Goal:

    1. As your Daily Goal increases, so do the Daily Bonus Points you accumulate for completing it. You may have started with an easy Daily Goal and earned 2-3 Points for achieving, but with a higher goal comes bigger bonuses which be 5-7 Points each day.
    2. There is a maximum threshold for your Daily Goal, so it will never go higher than a certain amount. So you can keep earning Points without worrying that it will cause your Daily Goal to be completely unattainable.
    "It will never go higher than a certain amount."

    Ok?? So what's that amount? They don't tell us, so that allows them to raise it to anything they want. Mine went up to 111 over the weekend. Is that the 'certain amount', or will I see something higher next week? Who knows!

    Maybe we should all post here for a while to see how high the goal goes. I recently had 111, too.
