money-making ideas

 
Ever wished your favorite retailer's sales applied to gift cards as well as their merchandise?

If they did, you could bank those savings, and only spend money when you actually need something, rather than being lured in by "door-buster" sales only to spend more than you intended at the end of the day! Not possible, right? Gift Cards are never discounted... Wrong.

With MyGiftCardsPlus, powered by Swagbucks, your weekend plans are one click away. (1) Buy gift cards, (2) Get 5-10% or more Cash Back (that's in addition to whatever your credit card offers you), (3) Save your gift cards for whenever the moment truly strikes you!

Treat yourself with a Sephora Gift Card!

 
Catch up on all the Oscar nominated movies you missed with an AMC Gift Card!

 
Take a weekend excursion with family and friends with a Groupon Gift Card!

 
Finally use all those Bed Bath & Beyond coupons you get in the mail and save even more with a Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Card!

 
Whatever you choose to do this weekend, make sure to purchase your Gift Cards ahead of time with MyGiftCardsPlus. From now through Sunday, January 24th, Swagbucks will give you a 100 SB Bonus on select retailers in addition to the Cash Back you normally receive on Gift Card purchases at MyGiftCardsPlus!*

Don't know what all this Swagbucks talk is about? Sign up here for your free account and start earning free $3 - $50 Gift Cards or PayPal cash by taking surveys, searching the web, watching videos, or shopping online. They've already awarded over $100,000,000 and have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. You won't regret giving Swagbucks a try!

*Please Note: The 100 SB Bonus Offer applies to one purchase per gift card listed above (Sephora, AMC, Groupon, Bed Bath & Beyond). This offer expires at 11:59pm PST on January 24th. Your SB will credit when your electronic gift card is delivered.

Alright, it’s finally freezing here. We’ve layered sweaters and sweaters and blankets and blankets. We're even wearing long underwear! We’ve even tried lighting a fire in the fireplace and sipping hot cocoa but none of it is working! We should have known though, they say the best way to get warm is to huddle with others for warmth.

The same goes for earning Swagbucks! If you’re looking for those warm and fuzzy Swagbucks feels, it’s best to do it with friends. And what better way to huddle up than through referrals and 300 SB Bonuses?

Three Brrr All

It’s just like a Swagbucks Three For All except it’s a lot… wait for it… cooler.

Here's how:

  • Refer a friend to Swagbucks between Monday, January 4th and Sunday, January 31st
  • Your referral earns 300 SB by January 31st
  • You AND your referral will both be awarded an additional 300 SB each
  • That's it (the 300 SB bonuses will credit by February 5th)

So once again, starting now, send out those referrals and get those referrals earning. All the cool kids are doing it.

Don't know what all this Swagbucks 'punny' buzz is about? Sign up here for your free account and start earning free $3 - $50 Gift Cards or PayPal cash by taking surveys, searching the web, watching videos, or shopping online. They've already awarded over $100,000,000 and have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. You won't regret giving Swagbucks a try!

Have you heard about Acorns, yet? It's an app that automatically invests spare change from your purchases.

So what exactly does that mean? Basically you link your checking, savings, and credit card accounts to your Acorns account, and each transaction you make is automatically rounded up to the next dollar. The difference is invested via Acorns in your choice of portfolios: conservative, moderately conservative, moderate, moderately aggressive or aggressive.

In my opinion, it's an easy and painless way to consistently save money! I've been using it since March, and I have over $1,000 in my account from round-ups -- and I haven't felt a pinch at all. Plus, unlike traditional investment accounts or 401K plans, you can make deposits and withdrawals whenever you want to without having to pay any fees.

But don't take my word for it -- set up your Acorns account now! There's no minimum deposit, and if you set it up before December 1st, you'll receive a $5 bonus!!!

Features:

  • No Minimum Deposit -- Start with a $5 signup bonus today.
  • Annual Fees -- $1/month for accounts under $5,000, and 0.25% per year for accounts over $5,000.
  • Mobile App and Website Access -- iPhone, Android support and the recently introduced website access.
  • Students Invest for Free -- Individuals under 24 years of age and/or attending college pay no fees.
  • Round-Ups -- For each debit or credit card transaction, the round up to the nearest dollar is invested into Acorns.
  • Scheduled Deposits -- Set recurring daily, weekly or monthly investments.
  • SIPC insured -- insured through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) for up to $500,000.
