I heart Swagbucks... and Target... and you! ~Giveaway~

WOOT!! Thanks to Swagbucks, I finally have $100 in Amazon gift cards! My goal was to have 100 bucks saved by Thanksgiving. I'm very proud of myself for not impulse buying spending it!

Search & Win

If you've never heard of Swagbucks then you should definitely check it out. It's a search engine that is powered by Google and Ask.com. You use it just like any other search engine, except that you get rewarded! Every search is a chance to win! Swag Bucks can be won in denominations $1-$5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. (I've never got the $100, but I'm still hoping!) You save your swagbucks until you have enough to go shopping in the swag store. It's only 45 Swagbucks for a $5 amazon gift card! There are a lot of other great prizes too. Like this hot Zune 4 GB Video MP3 Player , trading cards, collectibles, and even pay pal gift cards!
When you Sign up you get started with 3 swagbucks. And if you refer friends you get 1 swagbuck for every one they do, up to 100!

*******************GIVEAWAY****************
SO, I decided that since I totally rock for saving those amazon gift cards that I would reward YOU! Yes, you! Because I love my readers! One lucky reader will win a $15 Target gift card! (because it's my all time favorite store!)
There will be MANY ways to enter so take your pick! You can do any or all of them! Please leave a comment for each entry!

* Leave me a comment! Once a day if you want! Just say hi or what you have planned for the day. Anything really, you could even tell me that I'm awesome! :) (No naughty stuff please)
* 5 EXTRA Sign up for Swagbucks! (leave your member name)
* If your already a member, tell me what you use your swag bucks for. Do you save them?
* Tell me something I can do to improve my blog.
* Tell me the name of your favorite blog, and link too please! I love blog hopping, and would love to find some new blogs!
* Leave me a weight loss tip. I'm a fat girl chunky, and don't wanna be lol! A good tip please, not just "exercise" or something like that.

Doreen said...

LOL I didn't scroll down for all of the extra entries and just noticed I answered an extra entry in my first comment. Yes, I've already cashed out a while back for a Starbucks gc before they changed the increase in Swagbucks to get it. :) I always keep getting 1 Swagbuck...one time I did get 10 Swagbucks doing a search.

Doreen said...

To improve your blog....hmmm how about a GREAT Header?! Something to make your bloggy stand out! :)

Doreen said...

A weight loss tip....I'm trying to lose weight myself and it's hard! I would say drink a lot of water, eat salads but go easy on the dressing! That's where a lot of the calories will be at with salads. Keep moving! ;)

A weight loss tip is drink lots of fluids. I am putting crystal light in my water bottle and I have been trying the fiber ones that keep you full.

Congrats on the Swagbucks. Since you're ahead of your goal, let us know what you get up to when Thanksgiving comes around. :D

Mamushi Love said...

I lost 30lbs last year by being more active (burning 550+ calories each DDR play and simple toning exercises) and having a cut-off time for when I have to stop eating. I also started drinking more tea and don't drink soda.

marthajane said...

Thanks for the chance to win a Target gift card! Pretty awesome.

Jacky said...

Oh, how I love Target...I don't even want to think about how much money I could spend there...=D

Jacky said...

Blog improvement? A header would be great! My header isn't super exciting, but it's sweet, simple, and kind of eyecatching, in my opinion. Plus, I think it makes the name of your blog stand out more, making it easier to remember. =)

I love a lot of blogs, but I'll share {lillyella}! (lillyella.blogspot.com) She's been sharing some great wedding stuff, since she's getting ready for her own wedding!

thesweetestpetunia [at] gmail [dot] com

Jacky said...

Hmm...weight loss? The only thing I can think of is to count calories; set a goal and don't go over it! I've found that even if I go over my limit, I don't eat as much as I would have if I didn't count calories at all.

thesweetestpetunia [at] gmail [dot] com

Jacky said...

The only "rewards" type thing I really have is my Borders Rewards. I don't think it gives back as much as it could...but I'm a major bookworm, so I figured it couldn't hurt to have it!

I hear you about weight loss! Do what I do: have a bottle of water at the computer desk, and reach for that instead of snacks. Really ask yourself "Am I hungry, or just thirsty?" and many times you'll see that you really are NOT hungry.

Wow - that's great that you're doing so well with Swagbucks. I have 18 :-(

barbara said...

Well... 18 doesn't buy very much, so I'm holding onto my swagbucks for now. I'll probably use them at amazon.com

barbara said...

Good weight loss tip - being thin does NOT make you happy. You will still see the person you used to be. So forget about the scale and do things that make you feel good. Get a massage, a manicure, a pedicure. Eat healthy because you feel better afterwards. Walk around your neighborhood to relax. I think we eat because we are unhappy, not the other way around. If you start feeling good about yourself, you'll lose weight naturally.

When I go to Target I always check out thier clearance racks because I have found some good deals.

Once I found a reversible comforter on sale for 5 bucks. Ok, it was a twin size but still 5 bucks! So I bought it and my son spotted it and now it went to college with him.

My only regret is that I only bought 1 when I should have bought 2.
