Easy SwagBuck From eHarmony Video

On the Special Offers page, you can receive 1 SB for watching an eHarmony video.  It is on Wall 2 at the top.  Just watch the video and click on the link to eHarmony when it is finished.  (You DO NOT have to sign up.  I don't know if you even need to click on the link, but just to be safe...)

Tip: Appears before watching the video, you can open multiple windows and watch it simultaneously multiple times to earn multiple SBs.  Also, seems to work better using FireFox.  I didn't see my points until I logged out and logged back in.


If you are new to SwagBucks, you can sign up HERE.  You receive 3 SwagBucks for doing so.

Surveys: My Favorite Company

I will try to share some of the companies I have found that I enjoy receiving surveys from.

Today, I wanted to mention Opinion Outpost.  This is my favorite survey company at the moment.

I have not received any interactive surveys (meaning online simultaneously with a large group of people), studys or product testing from them.  However, they are pretty consistent with the amount of surveys they send, and they pay a fair rate.  They also provide payment via instant Amazon giftcard codes. 

The pay structure is very simple (compared with some companies)  50 points = $5  You can cash out after you reach 50 points or more.  You can request payment via check (4-8 weeks for processing and delivery) or Amazon giftcard, in which case you receive the code instantly.  I have mentioned my inclination towards Amazon cards previously.  I feel like if I get cash for surveys, it just goes to pay the rent--poof!  But, if I use it on Amazon, I can get things we need inexpensively, and feel like I am getting some great bargains.

The amount I have earned per survey has ranged from 8 points to 44 points, with the average generally being 20 points per 20 minute survey.  (That would be about $2 for 20 min, not bad!)

You can sign up with Opinion Outpost through this referral link.

I think, with surveys, it is important to be as open to everything as possible.  When listing hobbies, etc., the more boxes you can check, the better.  Just keep that in mind.  For example, perhaps you aren't a fanatic about college basketball, but you sit through a game or too with the husband--check it! 

Let me know about your experiences with survey companies, and if there are any you enjoy working with!

How to Win More SwagBucks

How is your swag searching going?  Here are some tips I have learned along the way.  You may already be aware of some/all of them, but I thought I would share.

  • First, if you haven't signed up for SwagBucks yet, you can't earn unless you register.  Go HERE to get that out of the way!  You will automatically earn 3 bucks just for doing so.
  • Take advantage of Mega SwagBucks Day-- which is TODAY!!!  Every Friday, you could earn higher rewards for searching--up 100 swagbucks for a single search!  Try to find reasons to search on SwagBucks as much as possible.  
  • Download the SwagBucks Toolbar.  It gives you instant/easy access to the search engine.  You get messages and alerts when there are new swag codes available.  Or, you can install a plug-in for your browser that allows you to make SwagBucks your default search engine.
  • Use it as often as you can!!  If I am going to a website, if I have time, instead of typing in the address, I will often just type the name into SwagBucks and look it up that way.  (if you type in the actual address, it may just take you to that page, so just leave off the .com)  You can do comparison shopping, too.
  • Other ways to win include telling your friends about it--you earn 1 SB for every 1 SB they earn (some exclusions) up to 100 SB!  You can also complete Special Offers.  I have yet to have success with this yet, so nothing to recommend there.  Let me know if you find a great offer.  There are some good ones if you have never tried Netflix, Blockbuster, etc. 
  • So, what to do with all the SwagBucks you earn?  I have been earning around 75-90 SBs per month.  You can go to the Swag Store and buy all manner of items and gift cards.  I personally buy the Amazon gift cards, particularly the $5 card.  These are at a low price of 45 SBs each.  It seems to be THE best value.  Be aware, Amazon cards are processed on the 16th and 30th of each month.  So if you submit for a card on the 2nd, they will not send you the code until after the next processing date.  The GCs come by email.  It is a code you enter in when shopping.  Some people say they enter them immediately at Amazon to save up all year long for Christmas, etc.  I have not done this.  I kind of like to use them one or two at a time.  I like to pay a little bit for a lot of things, compared with a couple things for free.
So, how is your searching going?!

Update: The SwagBuck points system has changed since I first posted this.  One SwagBuck on the old system now equals ten SwagBucks on the new system.  So, new sign-ups now earn 30 SwagBucks.  It takes 450 SwagBucks to earn an Amazon gift card, etc.

    Can't Wait to Try This Recipe for Slow Cooker!

    Delicious Living magazine has a slow cooker recipe that I can't wait to try!

    Tofu and Spinach in Peanut-Coconut Sauce

    Now, I'm not a vegetarian, and I plan on substituting chicken for the tofu. It sounds absolutely delicious--and easy! Plus I need recipes to use the stockpile of coconut milk that I have.

    This is officially on the menu for this week.

    Like the New Look?

    Giving it a trial run. I'll be playing with it for awhile. Let me know if you notice anything out of whack.

    Free KIND Bar at Starbucks Friday 2/5!

    Stop by Starbucks on Friday 2/5 and receive a Free KIND bar. You can choose from two flavors.

    JumpStart and Reader Rabbit games Cheap!

    Costco is currently offering a Jumpstart 3D Preschool and Kindergarten CD-Rom Free after a $17.99 rebate! Shipping is included, but there are taxes and maybe a small non-member fee. Be sure to read fine print and rebate directions.

    Personally, I won't be ordering this one, however I wanted to share the deal. There has been a lot of feedback that this particular game is connected with JumpStart's online subscription game play. Perhaps up to 70% of the activities can only be completed with a paid monthly subscription. I think it would be frustrating for my kids to only get to a certain level and then be unable to finish. (I know I get frustrated with the demo games on my computer and cell phone!)

    However, if you are looking for a good price on JumpStart or Reader Rabbit games, I recommend PlanetCDRom. They have a lot of software that is "free" plus shipping. Shipping and handling is around $6 per item. Some of the software does have a price, so could be more like $12 or so with shipping. There are tons of software that are great for home-learning! Last week I just ordered this for me (husband and I are playing with designing a house) and this for my 6 year old, so she can learn to type! They aren't free, but still a good value, in my opinion.

    My First Interactive Survey is Tonight!

    I have my first interactive survey scheduled tonight. It is about 70 minutes long and pays $20! I am very excited.

    I have been getting more and more into surveys--as I see which ones are worth it or not. Last month, I got to participate in a snack study. For two weeks, I kept track of all the snacks my 6 year old ate. I will receive $60 for that minor inconvenience--well worth it!

    Let me know if you are interested in hearing more about surveys. I have a few new ones I am trying out, but then I would love to share my experiences with them.

    New Printable Coupons from Kraft

    Kraft is offering a variety of new coupons for the Superbowl "holiday". Go HERE to choose and print.

    The exact value of the coupon is not given. It only says $1. Keep this in mind, as I printed the cream cheese and it is for $1/4 packages--not too impressive in my opinion. I'm sure some of the others are better, it would just be nice to know before using the ink.
