This happens every Friday so make sure you are using Swagbucks as your search engine to get paid to search!

New to Swagbucks, go here for my previous post about it or here to sign up and get started! I paid for most of our Christmas presents last year with gift cards I earned through Swagbucks - what are you waiting for to get started??

Mamapedia: $15 for $30 of Klutz Activity Books!

Mamapedia has a great deal running for the next five days. Log into or create your Mamapedia account here to score a $30 gift voucher good toward anything on Klutz.com. They make really great, fun activity books. 5% of your purchase will benefit the school of your choice! Use code SPRING10 when buying these vouchers to get an additional 10% off.

This deal gets even better in my opinion. If you sign up for their newsletter here, you will get a code for 25% off your order. This can be used in conjunction with the gift voucher to get an even better deal.

But wait, it gets better! You can purchase as many of the $30 vouchers for $15 that you would like and there is NO EXPIRATION date on them! You can also use multiple vouchers in the same transaction - WOO HOO! Also, if you spend $40 or more on your order you will get FREE SHIPPING.
