Earning free stuff...

I like to be able to get little freebies. Companies are more than willing to send you a sample and coupon, in order to get you to continue to buy their product. You can usually find them on Walmart.com, Sams.com, Kroger.com, etc. The blogs on the left are really good about updating for freebies.

Besides that, I like getting gift cards. We try not to eat out a lot and gift cards are a good way to lower the cost of dining out.

Swagbucks.com is used like a search engine. Instead of actually using Google, Swagbucks is sponsored by the Google and Ask.com search engines. However, you get 'bucks' when you search using this site. These 'bucks' can be redeemed for prizes and gift cards. This is one of my favorites, but it takes a little while to get enough accumulated to earn something. You can also trade in old game consoles or cell phones for credit. They pay the shipping. You can buy through their online links to earn bucks too, but I don't do this one. Use this link for more info.


Mypoints.com is another favorite of mine. Basically, you sign up and fill out a profile and get points for that. Then, you sign up for emails (create a spam yahoo account or something for all these sites so your regular one isn't bombarded with junk) and when you receive these emails, you get 5 points for reading and clicking on the link at the bottom. You also get points for email surveys that they send. This site allows you to buy online through their links and earn points. (I prefer a cash back site for doing this, such as Ebates) I find that I get points accumulated pretty fast. 1500 points gets you say a $10 Chilis or Outback gift card. You can also get CVS, Walgreens and numerous others. **If you're interested in this one, let me know and I'll email you an invite, because I get referral points....which you can get too if you refer!

I forgot to mention you can get points for printing coupons through their website and redeeming these coupons!
