Mega Swagbucks Friday!

For those of you who don’t know, Swagbucks is an excellent way to earn a little extra money by doing the same things you do everyday. What are Swagbucks? They are "points" you earn by simply doing your normal routine searches using Swagbucks for your search engine. It's that easy!

There are other ways you can earn Swagbucks too:
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on the "Special Offers" tab in the left column, click on No Obligation Offers, skip through several ads, and you will get 2-4 Swagbucks. You can do this daily!
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, scroll down until you see the "Special Offers" section in the middle of the page with pictures. Watch the videos to earn 1-4 Swagbucks.
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on "Daily Polls" tab and get 1 Swagbuck simply by answering the daily poll.
  • Go to the Swagbucks homepage, click on "Trusted Surveys" and earn Swagbucks for answering surveys. No limit to how many Swagbucks you can earn a day!
  • Be sure to check your messages from TSG and the blog frequently for chances to find Swagcodes to enter and earn more Swagbucks.
  • Invite your friends to Swagbucks and every Swagbuck they win, you'll win as well!
Once you are a Swagbucks member you can earn larger amounts of Swagbucks for your searches on Fridays! You can earn as much as 1000 Swagbucks!

Cash in your Swagbucks for prizes like gift cards to some of your favorite stores. For example, 450 Swagbucks= $5 Amazon eGift Card. I've already cashed in enough Swagbucks for $40 Amazon eGift Cards. I'm saving them for Christmas. Free gifts..Woohoo! =)

Join Swagbucks, search, and start saving!

Tipster Tuesday: Giveaways

If you have been following my blog, then you know how much I LOVE getting FREE stuff! Blog giveaways are a fun and easy way to do just that. I personally have won everything from coupons to recently a $70 CSN gift card by entering giveaways! Even though I'm on a tight budget, I can still enjoy things by winning them! =) Plus it's a great way to learn about products and read what others think about them. Here are some tips to help increase your chances of winning a blog giveaway:
  1. Read the giveaway post carefully. The details of the giveaway along with specific entry requirements and rules will be found in the giveaway post.
  2. Follow entry directions. If the blogger asks you to visit a website, find your favorite item, and leave a comment telling them what it is and the person comments "I love giveaways!" They will be disqualified, because they didn’t follow the rules.
  3. Enter on the giveaway post. Be sure to comment on the actual giveaway post. Most bloggers do not accept comments on Facebook or Twitter.
  4. Always take advantage of extra entries. Many bloggers will give you chances for extra entries. You usually have to enter a separate comment for each entry. Example: Entry #1 "Like" on Facebook, Entry #2 I'm an email subscriber, etc. Get as many extra entries as you can. You can increase your odds of winning greatly!
  5. Look for low entry giveaways. You are more likely to win if you find a blog that is new to giveaways or a giveaway with 100 or less entries. The lower number of entries, the higher your chances of winning!
  6. Leave your contact information. Make sure you leave a valid email address with every entry you submit. The email address is the only way a blogger has to contact you. Leave your email in the comments with spaces between the words (so you don’t get any spam). Example: funandfrugalmoms (at) gmail (dot) com
  7. Check your email. Check the blog on the day the winner is to be announced and your email. Most bloggers will only give you 48-72 hours to respond before they choose a new winner. Always check your spam or junk folder too.
  8. Keep track of giveaway entries. Write down the name of the blog, what giveaway you entered, and the giveaway end date. You don't won't to forget you entered a giveaway, win, and not claim your prize.
  9. Enter consistently. The more blog giveaways you enter, the better your chances of winning. Keep at it and the wins should start coming your way!
  10. Have fun. Remember to have fun while doing giveaways!
Good Luck! =)

Sunday Sentiments: Each Day is a Gift!

The next time your day is not going well, remember that...

"This is the day the LORD has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24

Each day is a blessing from the Lord. I encourage you to embrace every day with a Psalm 118:24 heart. Be glad of the gift and serve Him every day with joy!

Hope all of you have a blessed week! =)
