I’ve been with Swagbucks for quite some time, of course how many years I don’t really know for sure, I know for a fact it was before I even foundC2D. I really implemented it this last year trying to make my goals everyday before it got closer to the school/ holiday days. I was able to get 34 items this year for birthdays/ Christmas 2016 that is 98% of the items were paid for from gift cards earned from Swagbucks. I barely had to pay anything out of my pocket.
Sometimes me being impatient gets the best of me (it would normally be less than $10 if I did pay out of my own pocket). It made it where I didn’t have to stretch my budget for gifts, that I really couldn’t afford at the moment since we are on a extremely tight budget to get out of debt. If I truly wanted something I would work for the extra money through Swagbucks. I was even able to save $150 to get my own Shark Vacuum at Wal-Mart, only had to pay tax for it. I was so proud of myself because I was able to do it.
Usually when it comes to Swagbucks I do the daily polls, the task lists, love the swago boards when they have it, surveys, searches, and sometimes do the discover options if they credit. There are some days, I work extremely hard/even months as well, but other times I just do what I can do so I don’t burn myself out to reach my goal everyday.
Right now, I’m saving up for a pantry cabinet from Amazon + a Disney shirt-makes it $100 even- I’ve already redeemed for $25 and I already have enough in my account to redeem for $50 which means I’m 3/4 of the way. I usually add items to my cart to price watch it and buy it when I think it’s the best deal. I won’t lie may even save up to get myself a Mickey Christmas Village because of Swagbucks. I just know that if you put your mind to it, anything is possible.
Also should have mentioned I wouldn’t buy everything at once, I would buy a little at a time, most orders ranged anywhere from having 3-5 items to a order depending on costs. I would buy a little bit here and there throughout the year.
