How YOU can pay for the Holidays 2013!

For the past couple years I have done programs on the 'net to help pay for the holidays. Also helps pay for other things through out the year.

I want to share with you what I do to help offset the cost of the holidays.

I will not tell you about any programs that I do not have experience with and know that they do pay. 

The first program I do is Swagbucks.
Search & Win
I love, love, love me some Swagbucks.

It's a search engine that you can earn "bucks" on to turn into prizes.  You do searches, you win bucks, you cash out.

You can also do the daily poll, the No Obligation Special Offers (NOSO), surveys & other opportunities.  They also now offer shopping.

I average about 450 points every two weeks which I then cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card.  That's the best deal in my opinion but they offering all kinds of gift cards and Paypal options plus goodies you can cash out for.  Totally up to you.

At work, my homepage is Swagbucks & I search everything.  EVERYTHING!   I would definitely check it out!

Next up: Opinion Outpost
I've been a member since 2009.  Love it.  It's surveys only.  They pay in points which you can turn in for a check, PayPal, Amazon gift cards, or even donate to charity.

Remember, you will not always qualify for surveys but if you do not, Opinion Outpost will give you another chance to earn 10, 20 or 120 points by "opening" a virtual door to see if you won that way.  I have won quite a few points that way.

In 2012 I may almost $100 dollars through Opinion Outpost.  I cashed my points in for Amazon gift cards.

Then we have MyPoints.

I have been a member of MyPoints since 1998.  I usually earn a few gift cards a year. 

This year I earned enough gift cards to cash out for a $25 g/c to Target & a $10 g/c to Shell...the Shell we put in our oldest child's stocking as he bought his first car this year.  Nothing better than free gas!

MyPoints definitely pays and I've never had an issue with them for anything.  Great customer service.

You earn simply by reading some emails, doing a few surveys and if you want, doing offers.

It doesn't get any better than that!

If for some reason you click on the link & decide to join & they ask you for a referral name, will you use my name: mkw70.  If not, it's cool.  I just like spreading the info so we can earn our "cash" for the holidays!

Last but not least: Send Earnings

I've been with them for about 2 years.

Same concept as the others.  Do searches, offers, read emails, click surveys, earn points.

I took a backseat on this one this year so I didn't earn much but I did manage to eek out a $30.00 check.  Not too shabby for just "fartin" around with it.

Send Earnings is definitely a program that I will vouch for any day.

Hopefully some of these you will check out.

And, hey, if you know of any, let me know & I will join.

I love earning free does my family.

Leave me a linky in the comments!

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
