    vlynn - thanks for the white castle follow up! Very interesting to know.

    Stephanie, thanks for the Swagbucks details on the Mobile TV offer!

    Swagbucks just revised their blog post eliminating the Swagbucks Mobile TV app from the double SB offer. The double applies to the other 5:,,,, and EntertaiNow.

    I'm glad they issued a clarification, and now there's no need to go back later this afternoon to hope for more from SBTVMobile.

    Swagbucks users, the Swagbucks mobile apps are paying double today! Woo hoo!!

    First thing this morning, though, the Swagbucks TV Mobile app didn't credit double, but so far the other apps are crediting correctly. The last time that SB experienced an error like this, they re-opened the app for more rounds (after the daily limit was reached) so that those who had already reached their limit could also get the double payout. I'll be looking for that opportunity this afternoon!

    Heard back from White Castle about the genetic engineering label on the frozen chicken sandwiches. They said that the label was referring to corn used in the coating on the chicken, not the chicken. They said that 80-90% of all the corn and soybeans sold in the US was genetically modified i.e. engineered. They said that a law in Vermont was passed that required them to label any products that used any ingredients that were genetically engineered. Then after they had changed their labels, the law was repealed, but it was too late for them to take it off the boxes already used in production. Anyway, glad they aren't growing chicken parts in the lab!
