What are Cookies
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

This is how points2shop knows you've completed the offer, the advertiser will send the cookies to points2shop which will trigger the offer approval.
Of course each offer has different cookies and sometimes if you don't clear cookies it becomes a right mess.
Example: I complete one offer in the UKPD Group, I get approved, and then I decide to complete another offer in that same group, now once I've completed the offer I will have 2 cookie sets, this will cause information to get mixed up making the chance of an offer approval slim.
clear your cookies after each offer and the slate is wiped clean and your considered "new" to the advertiser.
