Swagbucks and Headaches?

Two totally unrelated things, by the way.

I was totally knocked out on Tuesday with a migraine. I got up, almost threw up, and promptly crawled back into bed and spent nearly the whole day there. Yesterday and Today have been a sort of sad recovery.

Nevertheless I forgot that I’d been meaning to share a big money making/saving tip with all of you. Sadly we all missed out on the team challenge, those of you like me, and the others who don’t know about Swagbucks. I’m not going to link to it, because I’d like for the referral link to show. Let me explain – it’s a digital dollar, basically. You get these things called Swagbucks that you can exchange for a number of prizes or items. I pretty much always go for gift cards. To Amazon. So I can buy books. No, I don’t have a book problem, so let’s not talk about it, okay?

WordPress – or at least my site hates Swagbucks. No idea why. However, there’s a promo going on right now. If you haven’t signed up, I’d love for you to use my referral link: http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/limecello (you have to copy and paste it, sorry – that whole hating thing…)  It’d be super sweet. Also, if you sign up, please let me know beforehand so I can give you a code for 70 additional swagbucks! It doesn’t cost any money to use. It does have a “rewards” thing – like with credit cards, if you buy through them/their link you get X number of swagbucks, but that’s a “your choice” thing.

I’ve been using it for over two years, and never saw an increase in spam or security. In fact, what actually got me was that stupid writerspace hack. Arrgh. I’ve made a few hundred in gift cards. Based on my last count etc, I’d say ~$500 now? (Yeah  – that’s a lot of books. And shoes.)

I’m also blogging about this because now through Halloween there are these special “Holiday Collectors bucks” and you can get bonus SBs for collecting them. It’s just a search and win site – you use their search engine instead of say, Google, and you’re randomly awarded bucks. Anywhere from 7-50, which you can trade in for stuff. I’ve talked about it before. And explained how it works and how to use it “best.”

See? It’s cute!

So remember – consider signing up. (With my referral code, please!) But before you do – let me know so I can give you the code to enter while registering. (Otherwise I don’t think it works.) And then go and get stuff – gift cards, items for gifts, all the good stuff!

*ETA: I’ve posted the link – and actual link – in the comments! Hah, WordPress, I have outsmarted you!

    I got my first Amazon Gift card earlier in October, and now waiting on the second. Plan on using that five dollars on a Secret Santa gift.

      Whoo! Yay for double use! It does take a bit of time with the wait, right? But hey- you’re getting something you wouldn’t have otherwise, and you gotta love that. 😀

        Yup, not sure how long it took. But that’s fine, because it does arrive.. Yup, just for searching, now and then getting the swag code, the polls, and watching clips.

    Sorry about your migraine! Hope you’re feeling tip-top soon.

    Sent you a contact form. Would love to do the swagbucks. It’s something I’ve never heard of but I’m constantly “searching” for things online and the incentive to get giftcards and such would just be all that much sweeter.

    Thanks for the promo. Looking forward to using it and earning them and then spending them!

    Sorry for the headache, they are a real pain. *Get it..pain* Yeah my humor is bad, My funny bone must have gotten eaten by my dog when I was a kid I think.

    I’ve been using swagbucks for a few years now and have got a lot of amazon gift cards. I do the same thing you do…get more books! Right now you can have Swagbucks tv playing in another window in the background and every 5 minutes while you are online click on another commercial to watch. After watching 9-10 of them you get 3 swagbucks. For those of us that are online a lot..this works out well. And don’t forget the daily poll, 1 swag bucks just for answering the question each day.
