Extra 50 Swagbucks for Signing Up - New users only

Just what are Swagbucks?  It's a site that rewards you for what you do: searching the web (every time I go to a site, I type it into the searchbar and get randomly awarded swagbucks from time to time), taking surveys, printing coupons (the site uses the coupons from which most of us print from anyways), answering polls, etc.  It costs absolutely nothing to use.  You can redeem your Swagbucks for items from the swagstore, including Amazon giftcards.  You can purchase just about anything from Amazon, and what a great way to get some gifts and not have to pay anything out of pocket!  I started using Swagbucks in November and have earned enough Swagbucks to get $110 in Amazon gift cards.  Find out more about all the ways you can earn Swagbucks HERE.

If you haven't started using Swagbucks yet, now is a great time to sign up!  Enter the code " HelpJapan " during registration HERE and you'll get 50 BONUS Swagbucks, on top of the regular 30 Swagbucks you get upon signing up. That's 80 Swagbucks just for signing up!  
**This code is active now and expires at 12pm PT on Monday, May 2nd.

Happy Swagging, Swaggernauts!

Walgreen's Trip #2 this week (week of 4/17/11)

I don't usually get to go out of town to the big "city" of Yankton all that much, but I had something work related there last night, so I stopped by Walgreen's again.  Here's the deals I got this time:

Colgate Total Advanced,  2/$6 = $4 RR

FREE mortgage payments for making your home a billboard

Ok, this was too funny and I have to post it.  I also wanted to give a shout out to those families who just finished their last Financial Peace University class tonight at First Trinity.  Dave Ramsey says to be weird, right?  This one just might meet that definition ;) 

Get FREE Mortgage Payments If You Turn Your Home Into A Billboard. Adzookie is looking for houses to paint. In fact, paint is an understatement. Adzookie is looking for homes to turn into billboards. In exchange, they will pay your mortgage every month for as long as your house remains painted.
Here are a few things they are looking for. You must own your home. It cannot be rented or leased. They will paint the entire outside of the house, minus the roof, the windows and any awnings. Painting will take approximately 3 – 5 days. Your house must remain painted for at least three months and may be extended up to a year. If, for any reason, you decide to cancel after three months or if we cancel the agreement with you, we’ll repaint your house back to the original colors.

Thanks, Mojosavings!


My favorite Walgreen's Deals Week of 4/17/11

I don't post Walgreen's deals usually because by the time I get there, all the good deals are wiped off the shelves.  However, the ones I got today I think will possibly still be there if you haven't made it to Walgreen's yet this week because there were still plenty on the shelves of the following items when I was there this afternoon.

PEEPS Chocolate Item singles 1 to 1.5 oz 2/$1 with in ad coupon
Use the $1/2 PEEPS chocolate item (no size restriction) coupon found here (click on “Easter Treats” Tab)

Total = $11.98
Use 2 $1.50/1 coupons found in the 4/3 PG

Final cost $2.99 each!

So... my purchase today consisted of 2 bottles of Nivea body wash, 2 packs of Duracell AA batteries - 10 ct, 3 Scotch tapes, 2 packs of WAG C batteries - 2 ct, and 2 packs of WAG D batteries - 2 ct, 8 chocolate peeps, and 2 M&M Easter eggs for a grand total of $19.11.  My receipts say I used $23.73 in coupons, and saved $25.38 in advertised savings.  I did this in 2 transactions: I paid for my Duracell batteries first, and then used the $3 register reward that printed after I paid for the batteries on the rest of my items in another transaction.  

I need to give a shout out to our local Yankton Walgreen's, they always have AMAZING customer service, especially for people using coupons.  I had an awful experience at another Walgreen's this weekend with some very poor customer service, so it really makes me appreciate and value the great people that work at our Yankton Walgreen's.
