Get $3 when you sign up for Swagbucks in February (US)





Want an extra boost to your budget in February??

If you haven't tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral this month. 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 $3 bonus! Here's how:

1. Sign up using this link

2. Earn 300 SB total before 3/1/18. You'll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it!

3. If you want even more bonuses, you'll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That's in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend. 

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned a lot of Amazon Gift Cards that I save for Christmas!

January Swago with Spin and Win (US)




             The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during their January "Swago" promotion starting Monday, January 8th at 9am PT and running until Monday, January 15th! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you're filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you're thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips:

              Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!

        Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.

         You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, January 15th 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.

              Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you'll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!       The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, January 15th to use all your spins.

            Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points - if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.

           Click here right now and click "Join" to get started! If you don't already have a Swagbucks account, you'll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of January, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

Amazon $5.00 off $15.00 Book Promotion


I've been wanting the new Trim Healthy Table cookbook and was getting ready to order it for myself on Amazon for Christmas.  I was happy to see that there is a $5.00 off $15.00 book promotion going on right now.  The code is:  BOOKGIFT17.

You can use the code on most any book or combination of books totaling at least $15.00 though.  Just make sure the code works on your particular book order before pressing "Order".  This would be good to use for buying children's books for Christmas gifts.

Food Lion Fun

Tomorrow might be a good day to go to Food Lion.  I won't be able to go, but it might be fun for somebody who is already planning to go.

On Dec. 12, four lucky MVP shoppers at each Food Lion store will instantly win a 60 percent discount when they shop with their personal MVP card. The discount will be instantly deducted at checkout. Additionally, beginning at 1 p.m. and at the top of each subsequent hour, the first customer to correctly answer the trivia question announced in the store will win a $10 Food Lion gift card. And, associates are joining in the celebration. Each location will commemorate the anniversary while sharing memories with their store teams.

I would love to be making a large dollar amount purchase and instantly win 60% off!

Who remembers when Food Lion was called Food Town?  I do.  Maybe that will be one of the trivia questions!
