Swago: Back to School Shopping Edition #Swagbucks





If you still haven't done your Mother's Day shopping, here's a way you can get paid for finding a great gift for the moms in your life.

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's
a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):
  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, August 7th at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Thursday, August 10th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

    Also, if you sign up through me this month, you'll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the "Swag Ups" area of "My Account"

My Dogs


I am a dog lover through and through.  I have always felt a connection with these four-legged creatures and I am always amazed at how special they are.  I am very passionate about saving animals, which is why I will always rescue.


My oldest dog Reese was three months old when my husband and I adopted her.  Two hours after we picked her up, we found out she had Parvo.  When the vet told us how much it would cost to treat her, there was no hesitation.  She was our baby and we did everything we could to save her life.


Thankfully, it worked.  After days of treatment and isolation, we found out that our girl is a survivor.   She is almost ten years old now.


When I contacted the shelter to inform them of her illness, they immediately told me that I could bring her back and exchange her.  When I replied in anger, they said “what do you want me to do about it?”  I was  livid!  The only reason I called them was because I didn't want any of the other animals to suffer.


We adopted Teegan about two years ago a when he was four.  He had a very sad past and we wanted to give him a good life.  We met Teegan through the Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP).  They take excellent care of dogs and cats.  They make sure that the animals receive all of their shots, start them on heartworm flea prevention and they use a thorough application process for the adoption process.  The dogs do not live in a shelter, they are cared for in foster homes.


Teegan was so badly abused that he had to spend five months with a trainer to learn to trust humans again.  SAAP truly cares about animals and it shows.  When I signed the adoption papers, the volunteer got all choked up and said to others nearby that this was a very special adoption.  If you were to meet Teegan now, you would have no idea that he was treated badly.


I am so glad that I was blessed with these two dogs.  They mean so much to me and make my family complete.

Do you love animals?  If so, I would love to hear your story.

4 Easy Ways To Save Money


My savings account is down-right pathetic at the moment.  Rather than berate myself for overspending, I have decided to think about how I handle money from this moment forward.  There are several easy ways to save up some money by doing the things that I already do.  Here are some examples:

1. Coupons and codes

It only takes a little while to clip coupons and you can save a lot of money.  If you shop at Kroger, you can add digital coupons to your Kroger Plus Card and save money without even using a pair of scissors. Before making an online purchase, see if there are any current coupon codes that you can use. RetailMeNot is a great resource.  When my husband and I order pizza, we always check to see if there are any deals.  Take whatever you saved and deposit it in your savings account.

2. Reward programs

I cannot tell you how much I have save just by signing up for rewards card at different retailers.  Kroger, Walgreens, Speedway and more offer rewards cards that can help you save money or offer cash back.  Sign up for Swagbucks and use the site to make purchases.  You get a percentage of what you pay back in Swagbucks which you can redeem in PayPal or gift cards.  Then put the equivalent in your savings account and spend the gift card money.

3. Sell unwanted items

If you are anything like me, you have several items in your home that you no longer need and/or use.  Turn that into some cash.  You can even join a Facebook Yard Sale group and sell your stuff that way.  If you have some books you are looking to unload, check out Cash4Books.net.  You can put in the ISBN number and find out how much you will get for that particular book.  You do not have to pay to ship out your books.  Take the money you make and put it in savings.

4. Pay cash for everything

Instead of using your bank card, use cash. Then, take all of the change and put it in your savings account.  If you are looking to save up a lot of cash fast, you can pick an amount to save.  For instance, every $1 bill that you get, put that in savings.  Or you could save every $5 bill.

If you have any other ideas to help save money, please let me know in the comments.  I could use the help.  Thanks!

4 Things Depression Will Teach You


I  suffer from depression, bi-polar disorder and anxiety.  There are times when I don't think I will be able to go on.  I'm on medication and I see a therapist.  I also have a great support system.  My friends and family are what keep me going most of the time.

Living with these illnesses, I have learned many things:

1.  There are people who will listen.  

I cannot fake my emotions.  It is obvious from one look at my face if I am having a rough time.  I tried for years to change this but it ended up being my saving grace.  The people in my life who love me noticed that something was wrong and asked me what was happening.  They patiently waited while I poured my heart out  (after some gentle nudging). I'm not saying you need to pour your heart out to every person you meet, but it is beneficial to get the words out.  This was important for me because I didn't even realize that I was depressed until the words flew out of my mouth.  Just saying that I needed help was a relief that I didn't even know I needed. 

2.  You learn a lot about yourself.

I learned a lot about myself and the reason that I was so miserable.  Accepting my diagnosis was hard but when I look back, I feel inspired because I made it through a very difficult time.  Any time that I start feeling myself begin to breakdown, I think back to when I was first diagnosed and it gives me courage.  I can get through it again.  The thing to remember is that these issues are not a one time occurrence.  When dealing with depression, it is a constant war and you have to be ready to fight to win.

3.  You are not alone.

You may feel like you are the only person going through a truly horrible time but the truth is, a lot of people have had similar experiences.  Almost every time I open up about my depression, I can see the look of relief on the other persons face.  Then we have a conversation about our illnesses and we both feel better.  I become inspired when I hear that another person has won the battle against depression.  It is empowering to be in the presence of someone who has looked depression in the eye and came out on top.

4.  There are people who love you.

Even though your brain is telling you things like "no one cares about me" or "everyone would be better off if I weren't here".  That is not the case.  You are worthy of being loved and that little voice inside your head is a liar.

The March Referral Bonus Is Here!


March is here, and it's bringing you the chance to get a $5 bonus from Swagbucks! Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a $5 bonus! Here's how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 4/1/17. You'll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you spend at least $25 through Swagbucks Shop* you'll get another $2 (200 SB) bonus on top of the cash back you'll get from shopping. If you have some shopping to do online, just go to Swagbucks first and visit the store through them. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but you'll get SB points for every dollar you spend (on top of the bonus)!

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned 75,837 Swagbucks to spend on Amazon.

*You must receive your shopping SB before May 1st

Swagbucks Valentine's Day Collector's Bills

 

One of my favorite things about using Swagbucks is that I can get rewards for searching the web through their search engine. Every now and then they have "Collector's Bills" worth bonus SB points that you can collect by simply searching the web. Collect them all, and you get an SB Bonus! Once you've collected enough SB, you can redeem them for gift cards to stores like Walmart, Target, and many more!
Here's all the information for this week's Valentine's Day Collector's Bills:
Search the web through the Swagbucks search starting Monday, February 6th through Friday, February 10th, and when you get a search win, you may get a special Collector’s Bill valued at either:
  • 5 SB
  • 7 SB
  • 9 SB
  • 14 SB
  • 21 SB
When you get a Collector’s Bill you’ll receive the value of the bill and the bill will be added to your “Collector’s Bills” ledger. Collect all 5 Collector’s Bills and you’ll instantly earn a 20 SB Bonus!
Keep searching til you find them all!

Swago: Shopping Edition

 

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly. With Valentine's Day around the corner, why not do your gift shopping online and earn cash back while you're at it?
Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB ($2) Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):
  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, February 6th at 9am PDT/12pm EDT, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
  • Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • The game ends Thursday, February 9th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.
