Promoting shit to save you money.

So, I have started reading lots of coupon blogs. These women know about every deal. It is impressive. In the past few weeks, I have read numerous things about swagbucks...

Search & Win

After all the ranting and raving, I decided to sign up too. Basically, this website give you different ways to earn "swagbucks." And these swagbucks can be used to purchase prizes - like gift cards to Target! Although you can earn swagbucks by signing up for different online promotions, shopping online, and recycling your cell phone, I have been earning swagbucks by simply using their toolbar for all my internet searches. If I am going to be searching the web anyways, I might as well earn some extra cash - right?

The good news is that the program seems to be legit. The bad news is that it is incredible hard to rack up swagbucks by simply searching the web. I signed up on Saturday, and as of today, I have 12 swagbucks. I need 220 swagbucks to earn a $20 gift card to Target. But, I am going to stick with it because it is a simple and easy way to earn free money. Yes, it will probably take me at least 6 months to earn enough swagbucks for a gift card, but once again - it is FREE! You can't beat that!

Considering the fact that we go to Target about five times a day... This might be a good idea for me.

Dang. I wish I knew you'd wanted to do that. You could have signed up thru me, and I would have gotten extra swagbucks.

If you want to try MyPoints, which does the same thing except they send you emails and you get points for reading them. Let me know and I'll sign you up.

Seriously... Thankyou! I'd heard of this before, but hadn't really put much thought into looking into it... The thing about searches pushed me too lol. We love Target here too and extra money is always nice.
