How to Earn Money From Your Mobile Device: Download the Swagbucks App

Swagbucks is the web’s most popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online. Whenever you shop, watch videos or search the web, Swagbucks gives you points called SB. You can use your SB to redeem gift cards to hundreds of your favorite stores. 

With the Swagbucks Mobile and SBTV apps I can use my spare minutes to earn free gift cards on my phone! Like the Swagbucks website, I can rack up SB by shopping, answering surveys and watching videos. 

While you wait for the coffee to brew, download free games and other apps through the Discover tab: 20 SB

10 Frugal Family Vacation Tips

I have shared stories about my frugal family vacations in the past.  For the past 7 summers, I have been able to take my family on vacation completely funded by my online earnings.  We have spent a week in a oceanfront beach house in Oregon and even gone to the Edmonton Mall in Canada!  


Family vacations are always fun and memorable, but FREE vacations are even better!

 Here are 10 of my favorite ways to save on travel:
  1. Plan Early!  Planning early is probably the biggest money saving tip that I can share!  If you plan your vacation in advance, often times the prices are lower and the deals are better.  Last year we reserved and paid for our Oregon beach house rental in February and got winter rates.  Even though we didn't vacation until August.

Back To School With Swagbucks

While the kids have been out of school, it’s like I’ve been MC Mommy: Entertainment Guru for the past month. As fun as it is, I’m ready for class to resume. 

And although the only part of summer ending that my kids like is Back-To-School shopping, that hefty receipt hangs over my head from the start of July until the middle of September. Didn’t I buy them enough pens and binders last year?!

Well, I think it’s about time for Mommy to be rewarded. 

From now until September 1st, Swagbucks is offering double cash back in the form of points (called SB) when you shop for all your back to school essentials.
