Swagbucks

I am so excited to start this week long event of some of my favorite Christmas deals and steals!

I want to start by talking about a company that just gives away money.

Yep, that's right. They give money away.

For simple things, like searching the web and shopping online.

I have two kids under 4. I do not go shopping nearly as much as I would like, which is probably a good thing because before kids I spent way too much money shopping. I do almost all of my shopping online.

Enter: Swagbucks.

Search & Win

"Swagbucks.com is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise."

This site is legit. I wanted to share some pictures and experiences I have had with Swagbucks.

I have done a few of their surveys and daily polls but the majority of my points have come from using their search engine and shopping at stores that I already shop at but doing it through Swagbucks. I have only been using Swagbucks since September and have already racked up $20 in Amazon giftcards.

This is a screen shot showing money I have spent at online stores and the points I have accumulated so far. The last two Wal-Mart orders were Christmas and Birthday presents that I ordered site to store. It takes a month after your order to get the points deposited into your account, but it is a great way to get some extra money back for things you are already buying.

 Amazon gift cards are the best deal in my opinion. You can get a $5 gift card for 450 SB. All other $5 gift cards are 500 SB. I do a lot of shopping on Amazon, especially this time of year, so these come in very handy! You can see above that I spent $50 at Wal-Mart and will be getting 207 SB, which is already almost half way to another gift card.

 I also wanted to share a fun deal I got in my Swagbucks email this morning.

Now normally I am very skeptical of these deals. I love saving money and I love buying books for my boys. This year we are doing the 4 gift thing with them (something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read) and I haven't gotten books yet. Also, we don't have ANY of these four Dr Seuss books yet. I read all of the fine print and looked online at reviews of this program and it seems very simple to cancel after you get this first order, in any case, I will be keeping close look over our credit card statement to make sure I don't get over charged.
So I got four books and a calendar for $3.96. I am planning on giving each of my boys two of the books and putting the calendar in Hudson's stocking. Better yet...


I got an automatic 500 SB and redeemed them right away for a $5 Amazon gift card. So I made money by buying these books. Now, this is a subscription and I always write these things on my calendar so I make sure and cancel before I get charged again, because that's how they'll get you. But I think this is a pretty good deal for something on my Christmas list that I needed anyways!

All that to say, I really like Swagbucks and I really like Cyber Monday. I will be doing a lot of online shopping tomorrow and I will be doing it all through Swagbucks so I can make some money back. You can also see above that I searched something this morning through their search engine and got 9 SB, it is so easy.

You get free Swagbucks just for signing up.
