Swagbucks Personal Challenge Update – August 20, 2014

For the month of August, I have so far earned 2663 Swag Bucks, using 450 SB to redeem for a $5 Amazon Gift Card.  I have 2213 SBs remaining, as of when this post was written.

Amazon gift cards have been my main preference in the past, with Paypal gift cards showing up for me this past Spring.  Today, I think I am going to branch out in an effort to save money here at home.  That is one of the reasons for doing this after all.


I have mentioned previously we experienced a storm this past Spring which damaged our house.  Because of that we decided to take on a  huge phase of home improvement that we actually never thought we would pursue.  As I sent off an email this morning concerning the proposed changes to the house, I started to think of all the little things that will need to be done.

“Those costs are going to start adding up if we are not careful.  What are some ways we can save?”

I began to list the ways I already knew – second hand store (Goodwill, Salvation Army, ReStore, etc.), Craigslist/Freecycle, coupons, sales … “Swagbucks!! I wonder if they have any gift cards to home improvement stores?”

Of course they do!  The selection of gift cards does not stop with Amazon and PayPal.  So that is my new goal – to earn as many Swagbucks as possible to help offset any purchases we may need or want to make at the home improvement stores in Big Town.  It may not be much in comparison to the cost of the whole project.  Every little bit counts in the end.

I can save even more if I shop through their Shop & Earn webpage.  When you shop with Swagbucks’ Shop & Earn page, you earn Swagbucks for every dollar spent.  Now through Sepetmber 6th you will also receive $5 when you us this link to sign up for Swagbucks and spend $25 shopping through their webpage.  (**see details below)

Sites on the Shop & Earn webpage include places like: Hotel.com, Living Social, Groupon, Sears, Walmart, Staples, Amazon.com, and Nordstrom.  This list is just a sampling, as listing all 710 (at time of this post) would take a really long time.  🙂

Additionally, we are not in a rush to make the inside look magazine worthy.  Our goal is to get the roof done and the outside completed.  Everything else can come along at a slower pace.  This will also help us save money as we will be able to take time to look and compare prices and available options.

I LOVE SwagBucks.  Pretty sure I’ve said that before.  🙂
