Earn some gift cards AND help a sister out!

Search & Win

Have you ever noticed the link on the left side of the blog for Swagbucks? There are lots of scam programs out there promising all sorts of things, but Swag Bucks is one of the few programs I've found that really works.

If you're unfamiliar with Swag Bucks,basically it's a search engine that randomly rewards you with points just for doing online searches, taking surveys, or printing coupons. Seriously, that's all there is to it.I mostly use swagbucks as a search engine and to print off coupons. You randomly get rewarded swagbucks for your searches (I earn about 10-30 a day) and every time you redeem a coupon that you printed off of swagbuck's website, you earn 10 swagbucks. These add up, and when you get enough swagbucks, you can order gift cards. My favorite are amazon gift cards. I recently paid $5 for a box of 204 diapers for Max. Because I had $15 in amazon gift cards that I got from earning swagbucks.

So, Swagbucks is offereing a 70-point bonus when you sign up for a new Swagbucks account and use promo code HOLIDAYSWAG. This promo code is only good for new sign-ups and must be used when signing up to get the free points. You’ll also get an additional 30 points when you sign up, so altogether you’ll start out with 100 points. Not too shabby!

Anyway, if you want to sign up, help a sister out and click on my link on the side of the blog or anywhere on this post where Swagbucks is highlighted and I get a little credit for you being my friend!

I have used this for a full 2 years before I felt comfortable putting a link to it on my blog. It really has helped us through the last two years. Not by making me tons and tons of money, like many online places offer, but by giving us little help here and there. I stock the cards up and save them for birthdays, Christmas, or just because.  You can buy so many things off Amazon, and having $5 giftcards here and there, its just nice. I started buying bulk items like diapers and deodorant on Amazon, using these giftcards to help, and we've noticed a major difference in our grocery bills. A few times I have chosen a giftcard and we've enjoyed a nice meal for a quarter of what we would have paid.
