Love the Money Maker Trips

So today I made it to CVS, realized that I was missing some of the coupons I needed (and they didn't have enough Maalox AND the Maalox was more expensive than online).  So I ran back home then back out to another CVS, where I bought...

1 Airwick Freshmatic Ultra @ $6
2 Freshmatic refills @$5
1 Freshmatic Compact @$5
2 Maalox liquid @ $6.49 each
1 Maalox 90ct chewables @ $7.89

used the following coupons
$4/20 CVS coupon
BOGO Freshmatic refill
$4/1 Freshmatic Starter Kit
$3/1 Freshmatic Compact Starter Kit
(3)$5/1 Maalox
$10 ECB (from last week's Excedrin deal)

Paid $2.90 OOP (less than the tax)
Got back $20 in ECBs

(It wasn't quite as big a money maker as I hoped it would be, since the Maalox prices were higher than online) but with the $4/20 it still worked out well. If the prices had been the same I would have had to come up with some filler items or do two transactions to reduce the OOP.

It's a Swagbucks Monster!

And I've created it!

I shared last week about how I'd convinced my husband to give Swagbucks a try.  Well, now he's hooked.  The other night he was online looking for more ways to earn SBs.  I even managed to learn something from him. I was under the misguided (evidently) impression that you could only earn Swagbucks for searches twice a day, I was wrong!  I have no idea what the limit is, but Paul has been earning for searching three times a day for the past several days.  He's just racking up the points.  I think we'll be paying for Christmas with Swagbucks this year!

So what about you? Are you Swagging yet?  Get to it!  You can 30 swagbucks just for signing up to get you started, and Paul has shown me that you can easily earn 30 Swagbucks a day (as opposed to the 20/day I was shooting for) just doing things you'd normally do - like searching the internet.  It only takes 450 swagbucks to snag a $5 Amazon card.  Those add up quick.  So get to it and sign up.
