First of all Swagbucks is a search and win site. You search...you win (sometimes)

~Get Swagbucks.com as your home page. That way, anytime you want to do a search you are already there and can win for doing things you normally do. You will not win EVERY time. If you do a lot of searching on the net, you may still need to use other search engines because if you "oversearch" too often, your account can be deactivated.

Every little bit adds up.

~Install the Swagbucks Toolbar. Occasionally, there will be codes posted by TSG in the "From TSG" area of the toolbar. Refresh this every morning for swagbucks from the drop down menu on your tool ba, usually 1-3 bucks.

~Grab a Swidget. You can find this on the Swagbucks page. Click on "promote" and then "swidget." The Swidget will give you hints on where a code can be located, as well as sometimes codes will be posted there.

~Read the Swagbucks blog and facebook page. Not only is it informative, but sometimes codes are posted there as well.

Other Ways to Win Swagbucks (other than searches):

~Submit a Poll Idea. There are new polls posted every Monday. If your poll question is chosen, you will be rewarded with Swagbucks.

~Tuesday Twitter Phrase That Pays. Every Tuesday, TSG announces a phrase that you use in a tweet. You can win up to 500 Swagbucks if your tweet is chosen. You can also submit TTPTP suggestion to TSG (theswagguy@swagbucks.com)

~30 Minute Random Winner. On the main page, they announce the 30 minute random winner, who wins 100 Swagbucks if they click on the banner when it shows their name.I have never won from here...YET!

~Daily. You receive daily Swagbucks for logging on to the toolbar, as well as going through No Obligation Special Offers (NOSOs). You can click skip for the ones that don't interest you, and fill out the information for the ones that do.

Let me know if you have any questions. I don't know everything "Swagbucks" but I will sure try to help!

Albertsons run this morning

I set my alarm this morning for 7:00 a.m. and 3 minutes before 7 I was wide awake and ready to go, shut my alarm off so that it wouldn't wake up the hubby and I was on my way to Albertsons.
2 Albertsons and 6 transactions later I came home with all of this for $7.18. That includes tax.
I was so excited about all that I got. I won't list all the details. If you would like to e-mail me on any transactions then please leave a comment and I will get back to you!
I had my dear son guess how much it all cost me. Knowing that I coupon shop and wouldn't have left the house THAT early if it wasn't a good deal he guessed $7.00. Good kid, I was letting him know how much some of the items would have cost me without coupons and he said "So, actually it was like buying the 4  BBQ sauces and 3 of the Weber seasonings and everything else was FREE!" I said "YEP, that's exactly what it comes down to!"
Please let me know if you have any questions!
I LOVE COUPONING!!!! Can't you tell??
Oh and it was great seeing you Michelle B.! I love running into people I know while out shopping for savings.

Rite Aid Trip

I know... I know... I haven't posted in quite sometime. I have been getting all of the really good deals at Albertsons but I have failed to post them. My bad!!

But tonight that changes. I went to Rite Aid to get in on the B1G1 deal on Cover Girl products. Wooh, Did I ever!!


2 gallons of milk $1.99/ea
4 starbursts $.88/ea.
4 skittles $1.49/ea.
2 Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless foundations
1 Covergirl exact eyelights Mascara
1 Covergirl line exact Eyeliner

I used 2 B1G1 Starburst Q, 2 B1G1 Skittles Q, 2 B1G1 Covergirl Q from 2/7 RP and I also used $5/$20 RA Video Q

All said and done my total came to $1.52! Of coarse I paid tax that brought my final total to $3.35 OOP.

What a great trip to Rite Aid. I just love free make-up!! (Especially when it is the expensive stuff. $15.99 is expensive to me, that's how much the Covergirl foundation WOULD have cost me had I paid for it!)
