Yep, I set mine on random.
With running the SBTV on my phone I've accumulated enough for a $5 gift card already. I installed the search app on my phone but haven't used it enough to actually get points. Did a couple surveys but I'm not interested in checking to see if I qualify for them anymore. Just SBTV every day (no captchas, instant play) for a couple hours and that's 50 SB a day. And I don't think I'll ever run out of uses for amazon gift cards =) apps, books, music, even saving for a "family" gift - it all adds up in my house.
I like Swagbucks. I've been a member for a few months now, and finally found a good method. The trick is in Swagbucks TV. The mobile app is completely automated, so if you just let it run it will slowly get you some extra swagbucks. Also, the web version, is very simple. Just watch for a few hours, and that is about it. Combine that with searching for 5 minutes, the daily poll, NOSO, and toolbar, and you are good to go. I am able to make the equivalent of $5 Amazon every 4 days, and it works out really well. Good luck!
I've gotten a lot of the AGCs since I joined, though I didn't know I could get sbucks from the games. And you don't even have to play them, but some are addictive! So that's ten extra points a day for me now.
I like SW too. I ordered 2 $5 AGC 20 days apart and all I do is let the STV run in the background, daily poll and NOSO. I've tried some of the surveys but gave up because like others have said I don't qualify....ever.
Question: Has anyone ever gotten the 1000SB for being the Random Hourly Winner? I keep that in background too so I can click over, refresh, and see when it changes. Figure that's the best overall way to rack up big points.

I haven't, 646, but one thing I noticed is that if I have swagbucks open in both IE and FF at the same time, they show different winners! Other people on sb related sites have mentioned that too.
I don't like Swag Bucks, as you're time is better spent doing the worst HITs on MTurk for the same amount of money. I still subscribe to some Code Alert twitter feeds though and get the $.05 to $.10 worth when they get posted for minimum effort though.
Even Swag Bucks TV, to legitimately watch enough SBTV to max out your $.75 worth of Swag Bucks, you'd need to be watching TV for 8 hours. 8 HOURS!
I tried doing Swagbucks, I just couldn't get into it! I think I enjoy turking much more, but Swagbucks does have some benefits if you like their style.
I was bored. I was searching. How long do they lock you out for?
It's been hours...and that funny looking swag guy is still there, "you are searching too fast blah, blah, blah".
Had something weird/unexpected happen to me today, and thought I'd share it so others can watch out for it as well. I had SBTV running on a tab and was searching on another, but when the search captcha came up I couldn't enter it (just went to a blank search page instead of telling me I had gotten the sbs). I went to open a new tab to hopefully find a quick solution and clicked on the SBTV tab instead, which had hit ten videos and was sitting on a captcha. I put that one in, then went back and the search captcha entered successfully.
TLDR: if search captcha won't enter, check SBTV tab for captcha.
