December Extra Earnings and Budget Update

Make save money online
This was a crazy month!  Between my sister’s wedding, Christmas, and New Years we really weren’t home much.  I had stocked up on Christmas dinner supplies last month so I didn’t have to worry about those.  I managed to snag some larger value Amazon cards from Swagbucks since they had the special December buys.  That helped a bit.

My camera went out last month and I’m happy to report that a new one is on the way.  It is free, thanks to Swagbucks!  Until I get it I will not be able to take pictures though.

Here are my extra earnings from the month!

$100 from Swagbucks ($90 in Amazon gift cards and $10 in Paypal)
$33.20 from Mr. Rebates (paypal)
$12.93 from Cashbaq (paypal)

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

Wow! How the heck did you get that many Swagbucks in one month? Even if I surfed all day, I'm not sure I could even get close to 4500 swagbucks.

Swagbucks and Mr. Rebates are definitely two of my favs. I get something from them every month!

Thriftypuppy = It was only about 900 swagbucks, not 4500 🙂 ($100/$5 = 20 certificates at 45 points each). I could never reach 4500 in one month.

Although 900 isn't something to be upset about – that is a decent amount of swagbucks. On average I earn 100-150 a month with my own searches. The rest is carryover from previous months and referral credit. Most of it is carryover since they made that rule that you couldn't get more than 5 of the same prize in one month! I've got enough in there now to get $25 to Amazon for the next 5 months, LOL.

I love swagbucks! Super easy and even at the 100-150 a month that would mean I can have an extra $130-$200 for next Christmas! Combine that with IRazoo (you can make $5/month at that site) and I am set.

As for the referral program, you get the first 100 points that your referral gets. So, if you refer 5 people who actually use it in a month then you should end the month with an extra 500 swagbucks.
