Swagbucks! Why you should be lovn' the swag!

Some of you may have noticed the Swagbucks widget at the bottom of my page. And what, you might ask, is Swagbucks? Just the best and easiest way to get $5 amazon gift cards!! First of all, Swagbucks is a site that awards points to those who use it as a search engine. It randomly awards bucks to random searches. (Meaning, sometimes you win and sometimes you don't.) But this is the best part, you can use  the bucks to buy prizes, and the best prize of all is the ever so cheap $5 Amazon gift card! For 450 SB you can get a gift card for Amazon. They award them twice a month and you get a code that can then be applied to your account and will be deducted when you purchase something. The best part? Spend $25 on Amazon and you, also, get free shipping!

Now there are lots of other great prizes that you can buy with your bucks, but in my humble opinion, the gift card is the best deal. You are limited to how many you can buy in one month, but the limit is very fair and unless you are on 24/7 you wont need to worry about the limit.

I suggest installing the toolbar and using that for your everyday search and you will not be sorry! Plus, invite friends to join and you will be rewarded with matching bucks for 72 hours! I encourage you to search the site and check out the prizes! Use my widget to sign up and send a little swag love to this chic girl! (I use them to pump up my ipod with great songs to keep me motivated while at the YMCA exercising!) Check it out, you'll not be sorry!

Getting coupons

I would just like to let you, my dear readers know, that I have found coupon nirvana. The free paper in West Bend offers coupons on Friday mornings, that I knew. But often times someone comes through and takes all the coupons and leaves the papers. Seriously, are they too lazy to take the whole thing? Anyways, I have a serious beef the the JournalSential, as they don't carry all the coupons and have serious bias in their paper, which often leads me to wonder when my cheap subscription will end. (Not soon enough!) Anyways, this leads to my revelation, the West Bend Daily News! No surprise they offer more coupons (than the Journal) in their Saturday edition. Big deal, well actually yes. First off, the coupons only cost you 50 cents and secondly, they just revealed that they keep back copies with coupons in them for a (and I quote) "ridiculously long time" at the main branch in West Bend. So, if there is some deal that snuck up and you just seem to misplace your coupons, I encourage you to go and get them for the same 50 cents that they originally cost! Awesome!!!
