Forgot to active Swagbucks Shop & Earn

I don't shop online a lot but when I do I try to do it via Swagbucks Shop & Earn so I can get extra SB, if that store or site participates. It's like getting cash back for a purchase, plus it helps me get to the minimum SB needed to cash out for PayPal Cash faster. It's a great thing. The problem is remembering to activate it, like today. I went and got tickets to Toruk the First Flight by Cirque du Soleil at Barclays Center, which I am very excited to see. After I finished placing my two orders through Ticketmaster I realized I could have made both purchases via Swagbucks Shop & Earn as Ticketmaster participates in that. Majorly disappointed that I forgot to do that. Granted the payout is only 1 SB per $1 but for a total of about $535 that's a good chunk of SBs to lose. Would have been great if I could have a do over but you can't cancel the order and start over. Things would have been much easier if Swagbucks Shop & Earn activated automatically when visiting a site that participates in that. But then again you have to be logged in to Swagbucks for it to work, which oddly enough I was. Have you guys ever forgotten to activate your Swagbucks Shop & Earn?

Yes. I keep forgetting I can do that, both at Swagbucks and MyPoints. I shop online all the time, but for some reason it just slips my mind to shop with my sites. So many mistakes, so little time!

When logged into Swagbucks a banner usually pops up asking you to activate Shop & Earn. It didn't happen when I was on Ticketmaster. That is weird.
