Monthly Update – February’s Extra Income & Spending

Time for the end of the month update! This month I earned:

$18.00 from Cashbaq (Cash)
$105 from Swagbucks ($100 in Southwest gift certificates and $5 in Amazon gift certificates)
$50 from Credit Card Rewards
$80 from Bank Bonuses ($50 from Bank of America and $30 from ING)
$15 from Selling things I do not need!

I didn’t earn anything from Mr. Rebates, Ebates, Cashcrate, or IRazoo this month.

I keep forgetting about IRazoo! I think that is a great site, I just need to remember to do it 🙂 I should hopefully get a check from the other three this next month – I was just past the cutoff for this month.

If you have any suggestions for making money online then let me know 🙂

I got $291.30 in food and $77.64 in household supplies. for $172.09 this month. That is a 53% savings 🙂

I really like the way you total up at the end of the month. That is a lot of swagbucks, I’m wondering how long it would take to get that many (I am pretty new to swagbucks and I just love it!). Love your blog, you have tons of very helpful info.

Thanks 🙂 When I get a total at the end of the month it inspires me to keep working on it next month and helps me figure out the ones that aren’t working for me so I stop wasting time on them!

I love swagbucks! I can get 2-3 a day and my hubby does too (he is one of my referrals). They are usually $1 swagbucks – but I have gotten as high as a $20 swagbucks before).

Man, how do you rack up so many Swagbucks? I think I have 11. Of course, I guess it doesn’t help that I don’t care for the search engine that much (same for searching to earn points through MSN–I got enough to get 1,000 frequent flier miles, but it would only work on IE and the search engine wasn’t that great to begin with). Plus I keep forgetting to use it and can’t seem to win anything more than once a day.

I have gotten lucky with a few big swagbucks plus I have some referrals (and you get some credit for them). I also try to get all of their swagcodes!

I don’t like the IRazoo search site – but I can rack up my points in about 10 minutes and then go to my regular search engine. I actually like the Swagbucks one 🙂

That is awesome! I love it when I’m under budget for the month! I feel like it’s a game too…(under budget= I Win!…Love that!) I was so so so excited on Friday when I left the grocery store and my coupon savings added up to $93.54!!! I spent just over $100 and that included the two pieces of steak I bought for my husband to grill! I wanted to frame the receipt! Makes me SO happy!

Wow, $93.54!! Great job 🙂 Plus, the steaks – I bet your husband was so happy about that!
