It's Almost Here....

Then New Year is fast approaching and one fabulous way to make a little extra cash is by using Swagbucks. and as you know, Swagbucks is one of my favorite ways to make a little extra. It's easy and free to do. 


You can easily earn $5 per month in Amazon gift cards with almost no effort. However, if you want to earn more in a shorter time period, I highly recommend checking out Swagbucks TV — especially if you spend a lot of time working on the Internet every day. You can increase your earnings significantly by watching Swagbucks TV each day while you’re working online — or through their Smartphone apps. All you have to do is sign up (thanks for signing up under my referral link!)

It's Friday!!!!


As you know, Swagbucks is one of my favorite ways to make a little extra. It's easy and free to do.

It's  easy is to get  4 Swagbucks a day! Do the daily poll and the NOSO (no obligation, special offers) and use the tool bar. Of course there are lots more ways to earn bucks, searching and watching videos, and looking for swag codes, just to name a few.

Swagbucks also has a great referral program: you’ll earn matching Swagbucks (buck for buck) for the first 1,000 Swagbucks anyone you refer earns. Obviously, this is a fantastic way to increase your earnings — and one way that has helped me earn quite a few more Swagbucks over the years.

If you try Swagbucks and it works well for you, be sure to share your referral link with your friends or write a post about it on your blog. Don’t keep a good thing to yourself.  up (thanks for signing up under my referral link!)

There are dozens of different gift cards to choose from but I’d recommend going for the $5 Amazon gift cards for 450 Swagbucks each. This is the best deal and you can use an unlimited number of Amazon gift cards per order on Amazon.

That said, you can still earn a decent amount with Swagbucks even if you have no referrals at all.
 
Happy Swaggin'!!

Tightwad Tuesday November Edition


Tightwad Tuesdays


Welcome back to Tightwad Tuesday's Monthly Round up edition. This is the time of the month when I get to encourage you to think outside the box for ways to financially help your family. Keep reading for my favorite ways to make an extra bit of cash. 
  

Ibotta: It's super easy to use, you get paid at $5 via Paypal. I always check Ibotta when I am planning my grocery list. I see if there is something on my list that Ibotta is also listing. If so, great, if not, I don't ever buy a product just so I can get some money back. I only buy what I need and if it happens to be something on Ibotta, then that's even better! In November I cashed out at $5.75


Instant cash sweepstakes was a small amount, but for the minutes I put into it, it is worth it. As of the end of November I have $0.63. Need to have $2.00 to cash out, so I will roll it over.


Mturk  
For November I earned $0.07 I really am slacking... but it's nice to know that every cent adds up. I won't be cashing out till I hit $50. (Right now it's at $48.11).




Jingit  I watched some videos and did some check-in's at stores and  I earned $0.30 for November. - Cash money into my PayPal account.



Bing Rewards   is super easy program in which to earn Amazon gift cards (or other prizes) every month. My total credits for November was 543. This was enough for 1 $5 Amazon gift card. Again, not spending much time here.. but every bit helps!

Irazoo continues to just trickle in. Not many tasks or videos to complete this month. But slow and steady wins the race right?  At the end of November I have a total of 350 points and will roll that over to December.


I also did several surveys with Pinecone Research. The surveys are fun, easy to do, take about 10-15 minutes each and pay $3 each.  This month I made $21.00.

  


And of course, my favorite way to earn money is Swagbucks.

In November, I earned 4352 Swagbucks, This month, I have enough for 4 $5 Amazon gift cards, and a $25 PayPal credit. (That's $45!!!!!)

 

My total rewards was $78.38  My time invested was approximately 2 hours. That's $39.29 per hour. I will never get rich doing this stuff...but every little bit helps.

 

What do you do to make a little extra cash?

Mega Swag Friday!!!


Here are some of the ways you can easily earn Swag Bucks every day:

Play Games. You get 2 Swag Bucks per 2 games, up to 10 Swag Bucks per day. (Tip: you don’t have to finish each game; just get a feel for how long you have to play before you can click “Give Up” to get credit … though the Games can be very fun!)

Watch SBTV. There’s a huge selection of videos, and a meter at the top right of the page that will go up at regular intervals. When it gets to 100%, you get 3 Swag Bucks. And the best part is, you can earn up to 150 Swag Bucks per day through SBTV. I like to leave SBTV running in the background as much as possible throughout the day – when I’m cleaning, doing dishes, folding laundry, etc. It’s a bit of a pain, so it’s not for everyone, but it’s a super easy way to rack up Swag Bucks each day.

Watch SBTV Mobile on an Android or iOS device using the free SBTV app. You get 2 Swag Bucks for every 5 videos, up to 50 Swag Bucks per day. These Swag Bucks are independent of the web-based SBTV, so you can earn an additional 50 Swag Bucks per day through the app.

Do the Encrave Activities. Most involve watching videos, and the Swag Bucks add up quickly.

Hit the Daily Goal. You’ll see the Daily Goal in the meter on the left side of the Swagbucks homepage. Reaching the goal earns you a 10% bonus of the goal, plus you’ll earn extra bonuses for hitting the goal on consecutive days. If you’re doing all of the above-mentioned activities, you’ll have no trouble at all hitting the daily goal!

Finally, keep an eye out for Swag Codes.

You just enter the code at the top of any Swag Bucks page for easy Swag Bucks.

Mega Swag Day!!



Here are some of the ways you can easily earn Swag Bucks every day:

Use Swagbucks as your default search engine. I recommend installing their toolbar or extension in your preferred browser. Your searches will be periodically rewarded with Swag Bucks, and even if you did nothing else to earn Swag Bucks, you should be able to accumulate enough for a $5 Amazon gift certificate in a month if you win several times each day. Plus, you get one Swag Buck per day when you open a browser with the toolbar installed.

Take the Daily Poll and get 1 super easy Swag Buck.

Peruse the NOSO offers {you can easily decline each one} for 2 Swag Bucks.

Look through the Special Offers. You can sort by “Free” offers, and there are usually a bunch of 1 Swag Buck offers under the Radium One tab, and sometimes under the other tabs as well.

MEGA SWAG DAY!!


It's Friday! Isn't that great! And to make it even better if you sign up for Swagbucks (thanks for using my referral link) you can be rewarded for things you do anyway!!



Use Swagbucks to search the web and randomly you will be rewarded with "Swagbucks" - redeem them for all sorts of prizes. My favorite is Amazon Gift Cards.

I then save them for the holidays which are fast approaching!

It’s easy to get at least 4 Swagbucks a day! Do the daily poll and the NOSO (no obligation, special offers) and use the tool bar. Of course there are lots more ways to earn bucks, searching and watching videos, and looking for swag codes, just to name a few. In October I earned more than 6000 Swagbucks alone! Go check it out!

Tightwad Tuesday - October Edition



Tightwad Tuesdays

Welcome back to Tightwad Tuesday's Monthly Round up edition. This is the time of the month when I get to encourage you to think outside the box for ways to financially help your family. Keep reading for my favorite ways to make an extra bit of cash. 

I was out of town for a bit of the month and therefore did not get a lot of time in on some of my easy ways to earn:

Instant cash sweepstakes was a small amount, but for the minutes I put into it, it is worth it. In October I earned $0.33. The cash out level is $2.

Mturk  In October I earned $0.93  I spent about 10 minutes total.  For October I am choosing to not cash out and roll it into November. I really don't want to cash out till it's about $50. (Right now it's at $48.97).

Jingit  I watched some videos and did some check-in's at stores and  I earned $0.75 for October. - Cash money into my PayPal account.



Bing Rewards   is super easy program in which to earn Amazon gift cards (or other prizes) every month. My total credits for October was 690. This was enough for 1 $5 Amazon gift card.



Irazoo continues to just trickle in. Not many tasks or videos to complete this month. But slow and steady wins the race right?  At the end of October I have a total of 3174 points and cash out for 1 $5 Amazon card.



Another easy way for me to earn money is by using my rewards credit card. Of course you have to be very disiplined to do this, as you don't want to carry a balance. That defeats the whole purpose. 

I charge everything to my rewards card. Gas, groceries, utilities, you name it, I charge it. Every couple of days I add up my reciepts and send my credit card payment in full. I never get charged interest, and I earn rewards points which translate into cash rewards. For October I earned 14,187 points which translates to $141.87!
 I estimate it takes me about an hour a month to keep track of my spending and making sure it gets paid.
 

And of course, my favorite way to earn money is Swagbucks.
In October I earned 4500 Swagbucks,  This month, I have enough for 3 $5 Amazon gift cards, and a $25 PayPal credit. 

My total rewards was $193.88.  My time invested was approximately 4 hours. That's $48.47 per hour. I will never get rich doing this stuff...but every little bit helps.

Works For Me Wednesday

With Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, here are some tips to help spend less time in the kitchen and more time with family:

Thanksgiving Wreath Title
  • Unless you are really set on homemade stuffing.. Stove Top is great and only takes minutes to prepare.
  • Prepared rolls and prebaked pies are fast, easy and just as yummy. Use the extra time to spend with your family.
  • Make side dishes ahead of time.. Then just warm them up to serve.
