I'm Having Fun with Swagbucks. So Can You!

Search & Win

I joined Swagbucks almost two weeks ago and I've already earned enough swagbucks for a $5 Amazon GC! How, you ask? By doing what I always do when I log onto the internet. I merely search for the things I normally search for, but instead of using google I use the Swagbucks search engine. You can download the toolbar, or not. It's up to you. I just go to and log in. Then I start visiting the sites I normally visit, or I search for other sites. You never know when you'll win a swagbuck, but I think it's normal to win 2 or 3 a day. The site lets you know when you win one (or more), and your running total is always displayed. You can also earn swagbucks by following Swagbucks on twitter or facebook and watching for certain codes. All of this becomes clear after you sign up. It's really easy and fun and takes no extra effort! So, use the link above or on my sidebar and join today. You automatically earn three swagbucks when you sign up!

Another Weekend Full of Giveaways

When I first started entering blog giveaways, I immediately wanted to have one of my own. I didn't know how to host a giveaway, but I stumbled through a couple by giving away new things that I had on hand. Then I had a Flip Note giveaway and actively advertised to attract entries. Giveaways aren't as simple as they look, and I admire the work and dedication that giveaways require. I don't enter giveaways for things I don't need or want because I don't want to win something that I know someone else might really need. The following are the giveaways I'm entering this weekend and they are all things I would love to have! And thank you reviewers and that a word?

* Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is giving away a Savespro $20 GC. I was not familiar with Savespro till I read a couple of reviews about this company. Savespro has great prices and a huge selection of products. I'm sure I'll be buying something from this company in the near future. Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is also hosting a giveaway for a Macaroni Grill gift package. The package includes a sample of the Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken Pasta variety, three coupons for you to try the other varieties the next time you visit your local grocer, a colander, serving spoon and cheese grater. Good luck!

* If you had ever had the pleasure of riding in a car with me, you would know how much I need a GPS system. Mom Fuse is giving away a Motorola Motonav TN30, one of the neatest GPS devices available. It has a touch and drag screen, 2D and 3D map perspectives, no activation or monthly fees, etc. To read all about the Motonav TN30, go to Mom Fuse. Don't forget to enter!

* Jamie's Precious Peas is giving away either a T3 Pro Blow Dryer or a Flat Iron. These are both much nicer than any blow dryer or flat iron I've ever owned. I usually get hair styling items from Walmart, and I don't put much thought into the purchase. After reading the review of these products, I know they are well made and work beautifully. I would love to own either the dryer or the flat iron!

* Have you seen the new decorator Clorox canisters? They are pretty enough to leave out in any room, and they are functional! The dispenser only dispenses one wipe at a time to cut down on waste. And we all know about Clorox's cleaning power! If you want a chance to win a Clorox canister (10 winners in all!) go enter at Lisa Reviews. Good luck!

Tax Day Giveaways

A Giveaway Addicted Mommy is giving one lucky reader a Magellan GPS system (Magellan Maestro 4350) valued at $399.99! I could really use this. My kids can tell you some funny stories about the times we've been lost. I've even been lost in my own town! Go enter this great giveaway. It ends on May 6th.

Savin' Some is hosting a Macaroni Grill gift set giveaway. The gift basket containins a box of creamy basil parmesan chicken and pasta (yummmm), a colander, a cheese grater, and a spoon. Sounds perfect to me!

The Alternative Consumer is hosting a HUGE giveaway for a Black and Decker rechargable lawnmower! This Eco friendly lawnmower is worth over $400. AND there is a second prize for a cordless leaf blower worth approximately $70. This is one of the best giveaways I've entered and I hope whoever wins really needs a new lawnmower!

This next giveaway is very interesting and unique. Is It Monday Already? is offering 5 readers a membership to Breakpals. Breakpals is a workout program that uses a widget on your computer that displays small videos to give you breaks through exercise. How neat is that! I'm not entirely sure how it works, but we all need more exercise and this sounds like a fun way to get more!

This Full House Reviews is hosting a Disneynature Earth giveaway in honor of Earth Day 2009. The prize package includes: Disneynature canvas tote, a reusable grocery bag, a biodegradable tumbler, a tree seedling, and more. Thanks Disney and This Full House Reviews!

Do You Love Yummy Giveaways?

If you love chocolate (and who doesn't??) you need to visit Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls for a chance to win a Fairytale Cocoa Duo from Fairytale Brownies. Now I have chocolate on the mind! I wonder what's left in my daughters' Easter baskets?

The second yummy giveaway I discovered is a $25 GC to Outback Steakhouse. This is generously offered to one lucky reader of On Our Way a blog dedicated to saving money. It's fascinating because it is written by twenty something year olds who are actually changing their lifestyles in order to retire early! I am so happy to find people that young who are already thinking about the future!

This giveaway isn't for the actual yummy item, but for what carries the yummy items. Jamie's Precious Peas is giving away reusable shopping bags from hotSACKS. This company even carries mesh bags for fruits and vegetables. These bags have great color patterns and are roomy. Go, enter!

Mama's Money Savers is also hosting a giveaway for reusable shopping bags. Her giveaway is from ECObags. These bags hold up to 40 lbs and the possibilities are endless. They are expandable, lightweight, strong, durable, fun, and fashionable! Thanks Mama's Money Savers!

Ragu is the next yummmmmy giveaway. Skimbaco Lifestyle is hosting a giveaway for a six month supply of Ragu plus a cookbook by Chef Robin Miller. I grew up eating Ragu spaghetti sauce, so I usually have a couple of jars on hand. I use it in spaghetti, lasagna, and chicken parmesan. I've even used it in chili! Good luck!

OK, this is not really a food related giveaway, but my youngest thinks it is one yummy giveaway. A Mom's Balancing Act is giving away a Hannah Montana gift bag filled with beauty supplies. Some of the items included are nail polish, shampoo, lipgloss, and toothpaste. If I won this, my daughter would think it was Christmas again! After you enter the giveaway, look around A Mom's Balancing Act. This blog has frugal tips, parenting advice, insights into marriage, and...well, just about everything. You will enjoy this blog, I promise!

Mommy Goggles is Hosting Several Great Giveaways

Mommy Goggles always has wonderful giveaways. I have entered several contests there and I'm always impressed with her honest and well worded reviews. Today I'm entering for a chance to win a reusable shopping bag and coupons for Bright Green cleaning supplies. These cleaning supplies could put a big dent in my spring cleaning! I'm also entering a giveaway for a chance to win a Vado HD Pocket Video Cam. Even if you don't enter the giveaway, go to Mommy Goggles and read about this great little camera. If I owned one I would take it everywhere! Another great giveaway from Mommy Goggles is a Lean Cuisine coupon giveaway. I'm always struggling with my weight, and I'm a big fan of Lean Cuisine frozen meals. The last giveaway I'm entering today at Mommy Goggles is for Seventh Generation Living Home Starter Kit. I am serious about using as few harmful chemicals as possible in my everyday life. Seventh Generation products will help me achieve that goal.

* Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is giving away a beautiful Easter Bag from The Ole Bag Lady. Have you ever noticed that the word "Ole" sounds almost elegant but the word "Old" is just "old." Anyway, the bag would be great to stuff with Easter Goodies for a special little someone! Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is also giving away fudge from Rosa's Fudge. So many flavors, so many calories, so much temptation, so goooooooood! AND if those two giveaways aren't enough, Frugal Mommy is giving away a large and small tote from Top It Off.
