Everyone knows the holidays are expensive. But the essence of penny hoarding is earning small amounts and letting them grow into big sums. And it’s an added bonus if you can earn those pennies doing what you’d already be doing anyway!
That’s why so many of our readers love Swagbucks — you earn money doing the shopping you were already planning to do. Just do it through their portal, or by watching cooking shows on their site.
Extra Earnings Through Swagbucks Black Friday
Swagbucks is offering special holiday deals this year. They’re not Black Friday specific, but they’re another great way to make some money back during time normally set aside to spend, spend, spend.
Or, take advantage of these deals to help replenish your holiday shopping budget — they’re good throughout December, after all.
Want to get your coffee fix? If you’re in the great American west (or select areas in the Northeast and Midwest), Peet’s is a great stop for a cup of joe.
Simply head to Swagbucks, register your Visa card online and then make an in-store purchase of at least $1 with that card. You’ll get a $5 Amazon gift card credited to your Swagbucks account.
Easy, right? But if you’re not a java junkie, don’t worry! There are other holiday Swagbucks deals to try.
The Body Shop
The Body Shop offers a variety of cosmetics made with natural ingredients. From skincare to fragrance, you can find almost any self-care product you can imagine at their store.
Make an in-store purchase of at least $20 and you’ll earn 1,500 SB — worth about $15 in gift cards to popular vendors like Amazon and Walmart.
Even if you’re not a caffeine junkie and don’t wear makeup, everyone loves chocolate covered strawberries — or the ease of giving an edible gift.
If you make an online purchase at Shari’s Berries through Swagbucks, you’ll earn a whopping 570 SB — enough to immediately snag a $5 gift card!
Careful trying to stack deals with this one, though — the offer isn’t valid if you use coupons.
No matter which of these deals you try, take advantage of Swagbucks when you’re doing online shopping — or “watch” videos in background tabs to slowly build up usable sums of SB!
It really pays off after a while.
