How I shop for FREE

By Kira On October 27, 2010 Under Saving

Do you enjoy shopping?? I know I do, especially when it comes to shopping for my kids! There is soo many cute kid items out there! However, I have noticed that all those cute kid items usually have a not so cute price to go with them. Wouldn’t it be great if you could purchase those items (or maybe even something for yourself :-) ) without having to spend any of your hard earned money. I did just that yesterday! My youngest daughter is in need of a new cloth swim diaper as she has outgrown her current swim diaper so after doing searches online I decided to look on Amazon and found a very cute swim diaper for $8.95.
Now this is a not too bad of a price when you consider that we go swimming at least once a week and if I was to¬† purchase Huggies little swimmers we would spend at least $8.95 for every package of 12 costing us about $0.75 a week to go swimming. However, I did not even pay $8.95 for the cloth swim diaper…I did not even have to enter a visa card number to make my purchase!! Now I am sure that you are wondering how I did this…it is called Swagbucks. What is Swagbucks? It is a search engine that pays you to search the internet! Over the last few months I have used this search engine off and on for searches that I might otherwise use google or another search engine for. The only difference has been that I get paid for using Swagbucks. Sometimes I get 1 point for just having the Swagbucks bar on my tool bar, sometimes I get 10-12 points or even 50 for doing a search. It varies day to day but the point is I get points that I can then use to purchase items in the Swagbucks store. My favorite item right now is the Amazon gift cards I can purchase for 450 points! So far I have earned enough points to purchase $20 in Amazon gift cards, this equals FREE money! I don’t know about you but I am all for FREE Money!!

I was soo excited to make my first purchase using my Swagbucks! I just had to share!! Do you use Swagbucks? If so let me know what your favorite item to purchase out of the Swagbucks store is. If you have not tried Swagbucks I would encourage you to sign up and start earning.

I am also linking this post up with the Thrifty Home for the Penny Pinching Party.

    I love Swagbucks too!! Sometimes I just buy small things for the boys from the Swag store so that they get their own stuff in the mail. Gift certificates are my favorite.
