Christmas is around the corner, so here on Coupon Closet I am going to be helping you make the most of your Christmas and pay the least for it! 😉 I found this post that I did back in 2010! 3 years ago I start using Swagbucks and I have been loving it every since. That year I bought a $55 present for just $5 and since then every year I have helped out my Christmas budget A LOT by using swagbucks and earning those free Amazon gift cards. In fact last year, HALF of our Christmas shopping was done on Amazon with our free amazon gift cards. Read my post and learn how you can do it too…..
If you know me, you know I started doing Swagbucks a few months ago, with great success. In fact, it has been alot of fun. (If you don’t know what I am talking about, you might want to read up on all about Swagbucks here) Basically you earn bucks so you can “purchase” products for gift cards. I opted for the $5 Amazon gift cards.
This year was a CASH Christmas. We do have 5 children, and since there wasn’t alot of money in the Christmas envelope, we had to get creative. Not only did I do alot of coupon and sale shopping, I did swagbucks. If I would have planned better, I would have done better, but I am happy with what I got. My boys have been wanting Tinker Toys for a while and if you know anything about Tinker Toys, you know not only are they fun, but also expensive!
The boys were convinced the present was a drum, but infact it was a HUGE bucket of Tinker toys! They were excited!They were pretty excited, but I was even more excited that I only had to pay $5 for them including shipping. They normally cost $55 on Amazon.com, but I had saved 10 of the $5 Amazon gift cards that I had earned with Swagbucks. How exciting is that? If you haven’t jumped on the Swagbucks train, you might want to. I am starting now to plan for next Christmas, and am hoping to have more awesome presents to purchase with my free giftcards next year.
