The last time I posted this, I joked about it being the 200th day of January. If I had only known just how looonngggg and miserable the following months would be, I would have been THRILLED with 200 days of blah long January!
But in all seriousness, THANK GOD this wretched year is more than half over. That means we are just a few months away from Christmas shopping, and I am guessing that there will be A LOT of that done online this year. You can start earning free gift cards now for Christmas shopping….or vacation, or to pay off a bill. This is how I save up for Christmas, and you can too!
HOW DO I DO THAT, you ask? I do the VAST majority of my shopping on Amazon because of the amazing deals that I find. BUT! Above and beyond the great prices and free shipping….it’s even better than that when you have credits in your Amazon account and those smoking deals become SMOLDERING Freebies! Last Christmas season, I cashed out $600 in free gift cards using this program alone!
The great thing is, that because it’s free gift cards, you can apply the savings to ANYTHING! So, if you aren’t ready to even think of Christmas 2020 yet, then start earning for something else! Pay off a bill, summer vacation, buy a new appliance….you can get PayPal rewards, too….and that’s just cash!
I know that many of my readers are on the Swagbucks bandwagon as I have pushed them to be SWAGGERS for almost 10 years now. But some new folks may not quite understand it. So, if you are new and don’t have a clue what a Swagbuck is, YOU NEED TO!
I talk about Swagbucks ALL the time….I have since I started using them in 2009. See, all you have to do is use them as your search engine and you will win SBs or SwagBucks from time to time. (Not every search, mind you!) You then cash these points out for gift cards from hundreds of top retailers like Amazon, Home Depot, CVS, JCP, many restaurants and much more! I save mine up and use them to pay for Christmas! Although, from time to time I will cash out a hundred or two dollars in PayPal cash when I am in a pinch! It’s great to know that this “Lagniappe Money” is there when I need it.
There are many ways to earn your bucks, but I mostly do the searches, codes and REFER-A-Friend, obviously!
Bigger gift cards are less points per dollar, but you can start off small, too!
Each month, you will be able to redeem 2,200 Swag Bucks for one $25 Gift Card OF YOUR CHOICE once a month. This gift card discount only excludes PayPal and Gas Cards. That’s a savings of $3 right there, and the incentive to save your bucks and cash out for a bigger payoff! (This is what I do for Christmas shopping!)
But, don’t be upset and think that you will never get to that point. You will!! But, if you -for whatever reason – prefer the smaller, quicker payouts, there is good news for you too!
They offer a new $3 Amazon Gift Card which is only 300 SB.
The $3 Amazon Gift Card allows you to redeem faster and get that quicker gratification! Most other retailers have $5 Gift Cards at 500 SB.
If you are not using this program, you should be! This is how I have paid for Christmas for the last several years. I save up my Swagbucks all year and cash them out around October or November for Christmas Shopping!
If you haven’t tried Swagbucks before, 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.
That’s it. It’s super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I have used it myself for over 8 years now, and I’ve earned over $5000 in FREE GIFT CARDS! That helps take the sting out of whatever it is you are saving for!
Swagbucks has issued a challenge to me this month and I would love to sign up 40 new friends/referrals! So, if you would like to earn free gift cards, this is a great, free and TOTALLY legitimate way to do it, CLICK HERE! Trust me!
You can see above what I cashed out just in the last month or so! As always, PLEASE ASK IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS!
So, if you like to shop at Target, and have not gotten a REDCard yet, I URGE you to do so. You’re missing out on another layer of savings, Free Shipping and extended return periods! It’s totally FREE and can be a debit card. You don’t have to have a credit card at Target! Click the box below to get yours and start saving more now!
