It's Mega Swag Buck Friday!!

I love Swagbucks, since the beginning of this year, I've earned a bunch of gift cards that I'm saving to help pay for all of my holiday shopping! 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?? You get 30 bucks credited to your account just for signing up!

Welcome CW2 Daybreak Viewers!

Here's a recap of the deals we discussed on the segment this morning...

UPDATE: It looks like this coupon is no longer available as they have already had all 100,000 of them printed! Become a fan of Macaroni Grill on Facebook and get access to a printable coupon good for a free choose 2 lunch combo this Friday (October 7th) good from 11 am - 4 pm.

Amazon has a great deal on The Wizard of Oz DVD. It is the 2-disc 70th Anniversary edition for only $5.49 with free shipping if you have an Amazon prime account or spend $25 or more. If you are a mom or caregiver of a child, then you can head over here to sign up for their Amazon Mom program where you get FREE Amazon Prime Membership for 3 months! This means that you can score FREE 2-day shipping on any order of eligible items, no need to order the usual $25 minimum order.

White Fence Farm in Lakewood is offering a $.99 kids chicken dinner, Tuesdays - Fridays this month with this printable coupon and purchase of an adult meal. This place is such a great place to visit, so much more than just a restaurant including animals, shopping and a playground.

If you think you are heading to check out any of the great haunted houses around town, then keep your eyes on the daily deal sites like groupon, living social, weekly plus. Right now on Weekly Plus they've got a VIP pass to Frightmare in Westminster which includes skipping all lines and both of their haunted houses for only $15, it's a $30 value. This deal is good Sunday through Thursday through the end of the month. There have recently been several other hanuted house deals on these sites, so keep watch on these sites and you could save a bunch of money while being scared silly!

One final deal that we discussed a bit when we were talking about The Wizard of Oz deal is Swagbucks and how using this search engine is a great way to earn points that you can redeem for prizes. My favorite prize is a $5 Amazon gift card that only "costs" 450 points. I saved up my points last year and was able to pay for a chunk of my holiday shopping with my Amazon gift cards that I earned using Swagbucks.
