Kindle Fire HD – $139 Shipped

kindle fire

I absolutely love my Kindle Fire HD.  I use it to read books & magazines, watch movies, and play games.  My children like to play on my mom’s Kindle Fire because she has some games on it just for them. I love that Amazon and Kindle have made it easy for families to share a Kindle Fire, and have everything on it for the parents, but also offer great features just for kids!

David & Emily have been asking for their own Kindle for the last year and a half, so Steve & I are planning to get them each one this Christmas. Since this is over our usual budget, we will be working the Swagbucks in order to earn as much money as possible in FREE gift cards.

For every 450 SB, you can get a $5 Amazon gift card (limit 2 per day, 5 per month). To make up the difference, every 1000 SB can be cashed in for a $10 gift card.

If you want it now, you can buy your own 8 GB Kindle Fire for $139, or if you want to get your Kindle Fire for a bit less sign up for Swagbucks here.

The Swagbucks Game – Earning Free Gift Cards for Searching Online!

swagbucksI have been a member of Swagbucks for three years now, and during that time I have earned more than $730 in gift cards!  So far in 2013, I have earned $310 in gift cards.  Most of this year’s freebies went to preparing for the baby’s arrival, including our brand new Graco stroller.  Now, I am saving Swagbucks to get a new freezer for free.

What are Swagbucks?

Swagbucks is a search engine powered by Google and Ask.com. Whenever you search on Swagbucks.com, you have the chance to win points (aka Swag Bucks) that you can redeem for prizes and gift cards. You can easily earn enough points to get a $5 Amazon gift card every month if you do regular searches!

In addition to earning Swagbucks from doing web searches, you can earn even more Swagbucks by:

  • installing the toolbar
  • watching SwagTV
  • using the SwagTV app
  • entering Swag Codes
  • answering surveys
  • participating in the daily polls

The more things you actively do to earn Swagbucks, the faster they will accumulate, but Swagbucks never expire! You can do as little or as much as you have time for and still be earning rewards.

Redeeming Your Swagbucks:

$5 Amazon Gift Card – 450 SB
$25 Amazon Gift Card – 3,150 SB
$50 Amazon Gift Card – 5,900 SB

$25 PayPal Cash – 2,500 SB
$50 PayPal Cash – 5,000 SB
$100 PayPal Cash – 10,000 SB

For most other gift cards, every 500 SB is equal to $5, and each different gift card is available in various denominations sometimes as low as $5 all the way up to $100.

They also have gift cards for Lowe’s, Apple Store, Spa Finder, Macy’s, Golfsmith, Dell, Southwest Airlines, Home Depot, iTunes, Land’s End, ecomom, Cabelas, Barnes & Noble, On The Border, Travelocity, Fandango, Sony Play Station Network, Xbox Live, and more. Gift cards are often being updated, and new offers are added all the time.

In addition to gift cards, there is a ton of “Swagbucks Exclusive” merchandise, electronics, music downloads, and other items available in the Swag Store.

Start Earning Today:

You can sign up for Swagbucks using my referral link, and then start referring your friends using your own unique link. When you sign up using a referral link, you are awarded more Swagbucks then just signing up on your own.

When someone signs up using your unique link, you will earn matching Swagbucks for the first 1,000 SB they are awarded from doing searches.  For a limited time, through 11:59pm Pacific Time on 2/28, you will earn matching Swagbucks when someone you refer earns from ANY & ALL of the earning categories.

NOTE:  Today, and every Friday, is MEGA SWAGBUCKS DAY!   That means you have a chance of winning more big bucks when you do searches on Fridays than on any other day of the week.

{Swagbucks} Getting a FREE Freezer

I love free stuff.  Well, who doesn’t?  Especially when it is something that you need.  You see how excited people get when they receive a free sample in the mail, but what it your freebie was worth more than $200?

For the last 5 years, my family has purchased a side of beef from a local farmer each fall.  This meat is enough to feed our family for the entire year, but it takes over almost an entire 15cu ft freezer which does not leave any room for stocking up on other foods when they are on sale.

This year, I have decided that enough is enough.  I don’t want to miss out on the great deals, so I want an additional freezer.  My parents have a 7 cu ft freezer that I like, and I think that size would be perfect for our additional needs.

I decided to shop HH Gregg for our new freezer.  We have purchased appliances from them in the past, and love their price match policy.  We also have a $100 HH Gregg gift card left from the delivery rebate that they offer.

So this is the freezer that I picked out:

freezer wish listAt 7.1 cubic feet it will give us plenty of added freezer space, but won’t be so big that items in the bottom of the freezer will get lost and go bad because we forgot about them.

My savings goal is $133 – cost of the freezer plus tax, less the $100 gift card – by October 4.  I’m hoping a Columbus Day Sale will hit making this freezer an even better buy, but I am planning for worst case scenario, which is paying full price retail.  Oh the horror!

So to get this for free, I’m going to use Swagbucks and coupons.

Every 2,500 Swagbucks is $25 through PayPal (Swagbucks offers PayPal cash in $25, $50, and $100 denominations).  Here is my plan to earn as many Swagbucks as possible:

  • Earn 50 SB per day using the SwagTV app on my phone
  • Earn 1 SB per day using the Toolbar
  • Earn 1 SB per day by answering the poll question
  • Earn 2 SB per day by completing the NOSO
  • Earn up to 150 SB by watching SwagTV on the computer
  • Answer as many surveys as possible
  • Complete as many no cost special offers as possible
  • Search daily
  • Keep an eye out for SwagCodes
  • Earn my daily & monthly bonuses

I am also going to take my loose change from now through October 4 and put them in a separate envelope just for the freezer.  Since we use cash for groceries, this means any money left in my grocery budget will be transferred into the “new freezer fund.”  That means the more I save with coupons, the more I’ll have to put towards the freezer.

On a more unconventional couponing note, I will be selling coupons on eBay.  I have done this in the past with varying degrees of success.  I figured if I can even make $20 over the next 6 weeks selling on eBay, then I’m doing alright.  Those monies will go directly into the “new freezer fund”.

Saving over $100 in a very short amount of time may not seem possible to some people, but if you set goals, break those goals into manageable chunks, and then work towards them you can & will be successful.

I will update everyone on my progress in a few weeks.

Have you used Swagbucks to get things for free?  Has couponing allowed you to get things for your family you wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise?  If you would like your story featured on RAFOAB, email it to me at email hidden; JavaScript is required.
