Swag Bucks

Posted by Annie S. on April 27, 2010 at 9:09 AM Comments comments (0)

If you look over in the side bar ------------------->, you will see a little box for Swag Bucks.  This company has paid me quite a bit for doing NOTHING! 

I have received $60 in gift cards to over the past 6 months.  With those gift cards we have purchased the following items:

Playstation 2 Games

Apple Slicer






What do you have to do to join in?  Just click on the little logo box, sign up, download SwagBucks toolbar (no virus...very safe), and search the internet like you normally do!  I don't even use the SwagBucks toolbar to search.  I just search using Google, and I still earn "bucks"!  Once you start racking up the bucks, you can make purchases at the Swag Store.  It takes me about a week to earn an Amazon gift card.  That means I get around 4 a month!!!!!

Introducing the Amazing AJAXO!

This site is one of the best I have found in a while. 

Say that you have a coupon for Tide Stain Release, and it is getting ready to expire in 5 days.  You can go to and type in tide and then your city.  It will bring up all of the deals that can be found for Tide that week! 


So, go give it a try.  I think it will save you some time...and sanity as well!

American Greeting Cards!!!

Posted by Annie S. on February 26, 2010 at 8:33 PM Comments comments (0)

Wanna know what is so great about this coupon?  It is unlimited.  Print as many times as you want.

If you buy the $1.00 cards, this coupon brings them down to .50.  Pretty good deal.  :)  

Easter is around the corner, as is Mother's Day, Graduations, Father's Day...
You get the picture.

Free Excederin!!!!

Posted by Annie S. on February 11, 2010 at 7:03 PM Comments comments (1)

If you follow this link you will find a short little survey on Excederin.  And when I say short...I mean 1 question.  lol. 

MAKE SURE NOT TO ANSWER EXCEDERIN!  If you answer that, you will get a $2.00/1 coupon instead of a FREE coupon.  Bummer.  I read that too late.  ;)
