There are many ways that I cut corners to save a buck. I love saving money! I get so excited when I see how much I save. But you know what’s even more exciting for me? When I pay for deals with gift cards that I got for FREE!! You will not make so much money you can quit your job, but last year I hardly paid any money out of pocket for Christmas gift! You can too – just start NOW!!
Here are some easy ways for YOU to earn some free money!
Swagbucks – I think this is one of the easiest ways to earn FREE money by doing stuff you already do, like search the web. There are so many ways for you to earn Swagbucks that you redeem for gift cards. My favorite gift card is a $5 Amazon gift card for 450 Swagbucks. You can also redeem your Swagbucks for Target gift cards, Starbucks gift cards, and even PayPal cash!You can read all about Swagbucks here.
Surveys – There are so many survey companies out there but I will only tell you about companies I have used and received great things! My favorite is Opinion Outpost. You can cash out with as little as 50 points. Surveys are between 20-100 points. You will not qualify for all the surveys you receive. Make sure you complete your profile and answer the surveys as soon as you can. I qualified to participate in a 1 hour online chat and I was paid 500 points = $50! It’s pretty instant too, you don’t have to wait to redeem your points! There is also Inbox Dollars, Toluna, and Valued Opinions.
Daily Deal Sites – There are so many daily deal sites out there that offer a free credit when you join. You can click here to check out my list of daily deal sites that give you free money. Use these credits to buy great deals. Many times they offer gift certificates to a place or a product that are discounted around 50%. Even if they don’t offer a free credit you should still see what they have to offer. You can usually get a great deal on something someone may like. Another great thing about daily deal sites – they give you a credit when friends buy something using your referral link! Most daily deal sites pay you $10 for every referral! Fab.com will give you a $30 credit if 10 people join (just sign up!) and Shop It To Me will give you a $10 gift card to Starbucks, Macy’s, Whole Foods & more when 10 people join with your link! (Really – just sign up. They don’t have to buy anyhing! I have received the $30 credit from Fab.com and a free gift card from Shop it to me!)
Coupons – Yes coupons will save you money that you can spend on other stuff but did you know that SavingStar will send you money for the digital coupons you receive? You can read all about SavingStar here. Basically, you load digital coupons to your customer loyalty cards and when you get to $5 they send you a gift card or money to your bank account.
MyPoints – You read emails or shop through this site and earn points. You trade the points for gift cards. This is a simple way to earn free gift cards, but it takes time. All you do is open email and they give you at least 5 points. They do add up and you can cash them out for $10 gift certificates.
