It's Mega Swag Buck Friday Again!

I love Swagbucks, since the beginning of this year, I've earned a nice chunk of money in gift cards! Today is a Mega Swag Buck Friday, meaning that you have higher odds of winning the larger "bucks" just by doing your normal internet searches! 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??

Using these coupons to purchase products is a great way to get products for free or little out of pocket. The deals that I showed during the segment are all available at Walgreens this week, some require coupons from the newspaper and some don't.
