The cliff notes of this post:
Swagbucks is legit.
If you sign up through Sit A Spell, you get MORE swagbucks than you would normally get signing up some other way.
If you or your friends sign up for swagbucks through Sit A Spell, you get a chance to win a $20 e-Target gift card.
Yep. Yep. Keep reading!
I just swagged $100 worth of e-gift cards from Target.
Yep. You heard right. Your ears "aint" dirty.
I will get to buy $100 worth of stuff from Target for FREE all because of swagbucks.
Don't know what Swagbucks is?
Well, it's a search engine (like google) that's actually powered by google. The only difference is...swagbucks pays you to search. Basically, they pay you for asking questions. Who knew being dumb could pay off?
When you register for swagbucks, you get a swag account that grows the more you search.
When I type in something like, "Quiddler" in my swagbar, and a dollar bill pops up and says I've won, I get so excited! Maybe it's not that big of a deal to some people, but when I'm searching and win, I leave my computer swag happy.
Once your account grows, you can buy all sorts of stuff at the swag store. Check out the gift card section!
Kirby has picked out three $50 Southwest Airlines vouchers AND a $50 Gap gift card with her swagbucks.
Still haven't jumped on the swag wagon?
Last week, Swagbucks contacted me.
Swagbucks the company.
Now, if I was really cool, I'd just let that statement roll off my tongue and keep on going.
That's what cool people do.
But we all know...
I'm not cool.
I'm just a regular ol' gal who started a blog to keep her friends and family up to date on her life, and still can't get over that so many of you come here every day. I had no idea when I started this silly blog that God had bigger plans and purposes than I ever imagined.
I'm honored EVERY time I get an email from someone in Japan or the UK.
It's a privilege to me to hear the hearts of so many women who share with me what God is doing in their marriage and in their homes.
When I started blogging I had no idea that I would fall asleep at night praying for people I have never met. I had no idea I'd laugh so much, cry so much, and be inspired so deeply by the women who come and "Sit a Spell" sharing their souls, ideas and creativity.
I'm just a regular girl, with regular problems, with a regular family, with regular friends trying to learn how to love an anything but ordinary God.
So when I woke up and saw an email from swagbucks, I'd like to say I just calmly read it and replied. I'd like to say, I read the email with a "that's to be expected" sort of attitude. If I said that was my response, I would be lying. Are you kidding me? I was SHOCKED and thought it must be a joke.
So instead, I jumped up from my chair and went RUNNING through the house yelling for Aaron.
I was anything BUT cool as I hopped around with excitement saying, "Swagbucks...the people...the company...they emailed me. They did that for Money Saving Mom, and she's super famous and her blog is WAY more amazing than mine. Her blog has like...a point...and mine doesn't! She writes about saving people money. I write about my kids eating ants. This is INSANE, Aaron! Insane!"
There's no hope for me in the cool category...no hope.
Basically, swagbucks wants to offer my sweet readers a great deal...
I just said, "my readers." Again...weird. In my head, my readers are still my dad, my inlaws, my sister-in-law and my crazy girlfriends.
If you sign up for swagbucks, via this blog over the next four days, you get an extra 2 swagbucks (you also get 3 swagbucks just for signing up). Which means, you start your account off with 5 swagbucks.
To sign up and get your extra swagbucks through this promotion, go here
As you are signing up, next to "swag code," enter the word HENDRICK (type it just like that).
You get two extra bucks!
And here's the ultimate awesomeness...
I love swagbucks so much that I am going to give away one of those $20 e-Target gift cards I just swagged. A giveaway!
You can enter to win by either signing up for swagbucks right here on my blog (you have until some time on Friday, depending where you live) OR getting a friend to come sign up. Once you get your friend to sign up, you AND your friend can enter to win the gift card. For EVERY friend you get to sign up through Sit a Spell, you will get your name put into the drawing. As in...get three friends to sign up and your name goes in the drawing three times.
You enter by signing up and then commenting, OR by getting your friend to sign up and then commenting, letting me know you referred someone and they signed up. If your friend wants to enter the drawing, they leave a comment telling me who referred them, and that they signed up for swagbucks.
Confusing? Maybe this will help....
If you have never signed up for swagbucks before, and you do here, then just leave a comment that says, "My name is Minnie the Moocher and I just signed up for swagbucks."
If you have signed up for swagbucks already, then go grab a friend, send them this way, let them sign up and they can say, "My name is Mustang Sally and I just signed up for swagbucks because my friend, Minnie the Moocher told me to."
Then I'll enter BOTH your names in the drawing.
Got how it works?
On Monday of next week, we'll have a drawing (I'll video tape it), and the winner will receive a $20 e-gift card to Target. Fun times!
Thanks to swagbucks, by signing up through Sit a Spell you can start your account off nicely AND potentially win a $20 Target gift card.
Friday, I'll let you in on some secrets to growing YOUR swagbuck account.
Using swagbucks is DEFINITELY one of our favorite ways to be frugal. $100 worth of Target shopping for FREE? $150 off airline tickets for FREE? You can't be more frugal than that!
Go! Please Go! I don't want to keep all the fun to myself!
Then use swagbucks as your search engine. I bet you'll get excited too every time you search and win a dollar!
