How did you do this month?

    Swagbucks played a HUGE roll in my $100 Holiday last year. I was able to get a lot of my gifts free with the Swagbucks!

    One thing I discovered was that you have to start cashing out early. You can only do five of the same item in one month, only two per day, so $25 in $5 amazon.com gift cards per month.

    Finding other ways to get low and no cost gifts helped me round out Christmas. This year, with $100 budgeted again, I’ve gotten started getting gift certificates and Groupons in addition to Swagbucks, mystery shopping, and other methods to lower my cost.

    @The Saved Quarter,

    That’s correct you do have to cash out early because their is a limit to how many rewards you can redeem per month.

    I too use group deal sites like Groupon, Eversave, ect. to offset the cost of the gift giving season.

    This week I grabbed this ( http://aproverbswife.com/2011/02/hot-deal-pulp-get-up-to-15-in-credit-for-just-1.html ) and this
    ( http://aproverbswife.com/2011/02/nab-315-swagbucks-a-20-barnes-noble-gift-card-for-10.html ) to add to my gift stash. There are some great opportunities to save money if one is willing to devote a little time.
