More Tips on Winning SwagBucks

I've been having a lot of conversations about SwagBucks lately.  I am probably wearing out all my friends on Facebook, with all the SwagBucks I earn, codes I find, and gift cards I cash out for.  =)   That brings me to my first tip--set up your account so that it posts on your FB page every time you win.  People start to get the idea that it's not that difficult to come by those coveted SwagBucks.

I have mentioned before that Amazon gift codes are issued on the 1st and 17th of each month.  I try to make it a goal to earn at least 450 SBs (the price of a $5 Amazon gift code) before each of those dates (cashing out asap).  Let's say I have 445 SBs on the 16th of the month.  Well, I use that as an encouragement to try to find a few more SBs.  That might mean some extra searching, or doing a Special Offer.  The easiest, guaranteed SB to win is by viewing the No Obligation Offers (found on top right of Special Offers page).  Just go down each page, click "Skip", until you reach the last page.  You will have then earned 1 (sometimes 2 or even 3) SwagBucks!  You can do this once every day.  If you have downloaded the Toolbar, (which makes it more convenient to search) you earn a SB or two every day when you log on.

Other Special Offers I have completed include getting an auto insurance quote, a home owner's insurance quote (we were actually looking for a new company and I went with one I found using SwagBucks!), signing up for an online gaming community, requesting info on a medical condition, etc.  Now, I will warn you that sometimes these offers can be VERY finicky.  I have signed up for a couple and never received the SBs.  Plus, don't give your primary email account!  Give one set up just for spam (because you will get some!)  This may or may not appeal to you, but I don't mind a little bit of hassle to earn 300 SBs in just a couple minutes.  They just recently added the ability to complete surveys to earn SBs, but I haven't gotten around to taking any yet.

Typically, a person might win SBs about 3 or 4 times a day.  You can search for SBs on any computer. You just have to log-in.  It usually seems that after I have won SBs several times on my Desktop, once I start searching on my laptop I start winning again.  You can even have others search for you.  You might have your hubbie/mom/etc. log-in and search, earning you SBs.

Don't forget that Fridays are MegaSwag days.  The amount of SBs you can win increases.  It's might be worth it to make a point of using SwagBucks on these days.

Of course letting other people know about SwagBucks is a great way to earn.  You earn matching SwagBucks with each referral, up to 1,000 SBs per referral (but only those earned by searching--not sign-up bonus, using codes, special offers, etc.).

If you are new to SwagBucks, feel free to check out these posts I have written previously:  Let's Talk Surveys (I mention ways to spend your SwagBucks)  and How to Win More SwagBucks

If you haven't signed up yet for SwagBucks, you can go HERE to get started.  You will earn 30 SwagBucks just for doing so!

Do you have any great tips for winning SwagBucks?

Entertainment Book & Using Competitor Coupons

It is always worthwhile to find out if any of the stores you frequent accept competitor coupons or price-match.

Home Depot and Lowes both accept competitor coupons.  Because of this, I scrounge up any and every coupon I can find that I think might possibly be accepted at HD.  They are really generous with this policy, and I have yet to be told I can't use my coupon.  I basically hunt for any coupon that I could use at another store and buy something similar to what is sold at HD.

If you happen to have an Entertainment Book for this year (mine is the St. Louis area edition), you should find a few coupons that can be used at Home Depot: 
$5 off $25 at Ace Hardware
15% off any item at Menard's (I'm gonna hold this one for a big-ticket item!)
There are also coupons for Sherwin Williams and Harbor Freight.  Now if I need to buy paint or tools, you can be sure I'll whip these suckers out!

So keep your eyes open, and take advantage of any potential savings that come your way!

Jasmere: Wry Baby's Funny Gifts & Gear

Today on Jasmere, get a $45 voucher to Wry Baby--current price is $19, but the more people who buy, the lower it goes (and it just started).

Wry Baby has snapsuits, toys and more, all to ensure baby grows up with a good sense of humor.  My favorites are the organic baby clothes.  Three to choose from: "Thanks...for all the global warming", "Ask me about my compost pile" and " 'Crunchy Organic Baby' Just picked and unspoiled"

I also like the Super Baby snapsuit with attached cape, and the matching snapsuits for twins that say "Stop copying me!"

Be sure to read the "Shipping & Details" section on Jasmere.  It's a single-use voucher.  Can't be used on books.  Can't be combined with other offers or vouchers (so I guess you can only use one per order).  Can't be used on shipping, tax or gift certificates.

Even if you buy a voucher now, you will only pay whatever the lowest price gets down to.

Jasmere has a new deal everyday.  You can also earn Jasmere dollars by sharing deals with your friends.

$25 Coupon for Filling Out Survey for Kidelicious.com

I received an email from Kidelicious.com offering a $25 coupon code good towards a first order, just for filling out a survey.  

"We are in the process of launching Kidelicious – the largest online kids’ food store where you can shop for all the major brands plus a wide range of hard to find items and healthier options.  We are offering your readers $25 worth of free food on their first order at Kidelicious.com, slated to open January, 2011, just for filling out our survey at www.kidelicious.com/survey"

I don't know if the coupon code will be $25 off any order or whether it will be more like $25 off $50 or something, but I think it is worth a shot! 

Update: You should get an email with the coupon code right away--check your spam folder.  Apparently it is a code for $25 off any order--it can even be less than $25, but you forfeit any remaining balance.  I don't know if it will apply towards shipping.  Remember, the site does not go live until Jan. 2011.  So hold on to those codes somewhere safe.  (You might want to write it down on paper, too.)

Burt's Bees Grab Bag Half-Off!

Burt's Bees is offering a grab bag for half-off the retail price.  It is $24.99 and shipping is $5.  If you get two, shipping is still only $6.  Each grab bag will include 5 full-sized products, 14 mini-size products, and 5 special gifts! The assortment includes a lip balm, lip shimmer, lip gloss, body lotion, facial cleanser, hand cream, face cream, and more.  All with a MSRP of $50!  Items may vary. All sales final. No returns or replacements.

These are great to break up and use as stocking stuffers, etc.

Use code WELCOME and get a free lip gloss, too! This is for 1st time orders over $25, so you would have to add a filler if you only order one grab bag.  Or try code LIPS for a medicated lip balm (not sure if this one is working).

Let's Talk Surveys...

Do you have any favorite survey companies or rewards programs?

Here is what I have been doing with mine lately:

Swagbucks (they did just set up surveys, along with earning SwagBucks for searching, but I haven't done any yet).  I always get Amazon gift cards with my SBs.  It seems to be the best deal by far.  I can get a $5 Amazon gc for 450 SBs, whereas $5 Paypal is 700 SBs!  There are tons of other options though (like a $25 Restaurant.com gc for only 400 SB--we just never have any of those restaurants around).  This one also gives points for referring others to SwagBucks.  You earn matching points with your referrals (up to so much).  (BTW, a handy bit of info I learned is that SB pays out Amazon gift cards on the 1st and 17th of each month.  So if you request a payout on the 2nd, you won't get it until the 17th)

Opinion Outpost,  This is a great survey company.  You can either get Amazon gc codes immediately online, or ask for a check by mail.  Of course, I go for the Amazon gc.  When I find something I want to get, I can get my codes asap.  You could save up all your points and really make a great dent in Christmas shopping, too!  I just like to shave a little off every order, though.  You can also earn points through referring others.

Lightspeed   Survey company.  You can redeem for gift cards or other prizes, with lots of choices, and the rate is the same-- 550 points for a $5 card (whether to Amazon, Applebees, etc.)  I have been saving up to cash out for $10 cards to CVS.  That way, when I do deals at CVS I can pretty much eliminate any out of pocket expense.

E-rewards   This survey company has been noted to have very few rewards available.  However, after having been with them over a year, and saving up towards Hilton points, they just added Target gift cards.  Takes a long time to earn one, but it is a very practical payout!  I just cashed in for a $25 Target card.

Toluna   This survey company can be a bit tricky to find surveys you qualify for and that pay well.  However, when they do pay well, they pay very well.  I have cashed out to Paypal twice now for $20 each time.  They offer online product disscussion forums, etc., but they can be hard to find.  Great when they come up though!

Pinecone Research   I don't have a link for them, as they put up a banner in random places only occasionally and you have to click through it to apply.  You can apply directly through their website, but they aren't always hiring.  They pay $3 Paypal everytime you complete a survey (excellent rate!).  They also offer product testing every so often.

So what have you been doing?

Summer is the Perfect Time to try SwagBucks!

SwagBucks is kicking off the summer with lots of great ways to get more SwagBucks.

You can now go to your home page and enter your birthday to win 50 SwagBucks on that day.

Currently, SB is also giving every 7th person to search 47 SBs!  (I won 39 yesterday!)  I think the amount will be changing every day.

If you don't know what SwagBucks are, they are points awarded when you use the SwagBucks search engine.  You can randomly win SBs by searching, or by entering codes that are often given out.  You can redeem the points (or SwagBucks) for just about anything, but my personal favorite (and the best deal) is 450 SB for a $5 Amazon gift card.  I usually earn at least 2-4 gift cards a month.

When you sign up for SwagBucks, you automatically earn 30 SBs to start you off.  BUT, if you enter the code SUMMEROFSWAG when you register, you earn another 20 SBs!  You can also earn SBs by refering friends, etc.  It's very rewarding for something I do anyway (searching the Internet).

Freebies: Shave Cream Sample & Pedometer

EOS is offering a free sample of their shaving cream.  Just go HERE to fill out a request.  You should receive it in 6-8 wks.

Up to 70% Off Sale Items at SERRV

SERRV is an organization that works with thousands of small-scale artisans and farmers in Africa, Asia, Latin America and other developing regions of the world by marketing their handcrafts and agricultural products. Through our work with 75 community-based organizations in 36 countries, we create economic opportunity so these producers can support their families.

In addition to purchasing and marketing products, we work with producers to assist them in becoming economically self sufficient through product design, training, information, technical assistance and market access. 

You can find the long list of Sale items available HERE.  There are items made all over the world, both functional and decorative.  The list is a bit cumbersome to search, but there are lots of fantastic items to choose from.  Shipping is based on amount of your order and starts at $6.95  It is interesting to note that items that are on clearance have all ready been paid for to the artisan--so he/she will not lose any compensation from the discounted prices.

There are some great pieces in the Jewelry section.  I like this Lapis necklace.  Or this kit of handmade glass beads with everything you need to make your 2 necklaces--only $4! (those would be great gifts!)  And I love baskets!  I have been wanting something like THIS and/or THIS.

You can search the Spring/Summer catalog online.  It's an easier way to flip through and see the beautiful items available.  You can also request a print catalog.

I have ordered from SERRV in the past.  I have some absolutely gorgeous Christmas ornaments that I ordered from their catalog.  It is such a great way to acquire unique, handmade, cultural items that will benefit directly the person who created it.  I love how they tell where each item is made.

There are so many amazing items, please let me know what treasures you discover!

If you like Feline Pine, you will LOVE Equine Fresh.  It is found at Farm & Home Supply Stores (like Buchheit!).  You can get a 40 lb. bag for a less than $6!  Feline Pine is like 7 lb for $8?  As far as I can tell, it is the same product.  The pellets may be a little bigger (I haven't opened my bag yet).  If you happen to have horses, using the pine bedding results in fantastic compost, so I have heard!

EWG's 2010 Sunscreen Guide

Just in time for summer, EWG has released the 2010 Sunscreen Guide.

"Of the 500 beach and sports sunscreens that EWG analyzed for our 2010 Sunscreen Guide, we can only recommend 8 percent. Between the false sense of security from sunscreens with an SPF of 50 or higher, and new data linking vitamin A to accelerated development of skin tumors and lesions, most products don't live up to their hype. In fact, EWG found that wearing a hat and shirt in the sun should be your first line of defense, then using an EWG recommended sunscreen."

Get Method Laundry Deterg at ToysRus for $1.82

I have heard that ToysRus/BabiesRus has a promo that ends on June 26th for Method laundry detergent.  Buy $20 worth and receive $5 off instantly.

If you buy 3 bottles at $8.59, the total would be $25.47
Minus instant $5 = $20.47
Use a $3/1 store coupon (only need one and will come off all 3 bottles) (expires 6/17)
Plus, use 3- $2/1 Method laundry detergent coupons  (can print twice per computer by hitting back button)
so another $9 and $6 subtracted = $5.47 for three bottles, or $1.82 each
