Starbucks for FREE sorta

Okay, My life being dedicated to an amazing fund-raiser for an amazing school while working with some amazing people is over..

So let's talk about Starbucks. First you should know I don't drink coffee, but I do like an occasional hot chocolate or lemonade while socializing with my coffee addicted friends. However I can't justify paying $4.00 for hot chocolate EVER!

There are several sites that will pay in Starbucks giftcards or Paypal that you can in turn load onto your Starbucks giftcard after you register it.

SurveySpot is a great site because the minute you cash out it transfers to your paypal account. They also do a lot of awesome product trials which can also be fun!

Pinecone Research is another site that will periodically send you product trials and surveys and then in turn pay via Paypal! will also pay via Paypal, Check or actual gift card. You get more bang for your buck when you select electronic money via Paypal or a giftcard because you need more points to select cash for the same value.

MyPoints is a great site to earn free gift cards and BzzAgent pays you in MyPoints for trying various products and reviewing them!

Mindfield is another site that gives you a PayPal option they also often have product trials that pay $30- $100 for each survey. Though they are usually in the $1 to $5.00 range. You can chose check options as well.

E-Poll Rewards has the option of several gift-cards including Starbucks and of course Paypal!

LightSpeed Panel also gives you several options of giftcards and Paypal options.

Buzzback Research is another site that pays via Paypal, but they recently changed to a $20.00 min to request payment.

Several Sites pay in Checks which can be cashed at your Bank

Opinion Outpost

Survey Savvy

I also participate in a few other sites that pay in various gift cards the complete list can be found here

Last year I made over $1600 in cash and gift cards just by spending a few minutes a day taking surveys and participating in product trials.

Well after investing most of my free time and energy into a massive event for my son's school to reduce fund-raisers for the parents to participate in, I am finally back to blogging.

Today's first sample is sponsored by Target. They have a sample of WISK here

Green Mountain Coffee is offering a free sample of coffee by becoming a fan on facebook here 

Thursday, September 30, 2010


I have inddeed doing product trials, surveys and bargain shopping all summer, but my computer time has been limited. I have been helping plan a major event for my child's school that focus's on receiving a ton of donations to eliminate monthly fund-raisers.

If you want to know more about it I would be glad to share, otherwise I won't bore you!

Boogie Wipes

Remember how I often mention certain products are worth a splurge? And Boogie Wipes is always mentioned among my favorite products. They make my life so easy! I keep a pack at home, in each vechile and in the diaper bag. I love that you can' buy Boogie Wipes on Amazon they are awesome saline wipes that come in "flavors" like grape, Fresh Scent, Chamomile with Vitamin E, Magic Menthol and unscented. The even come in little sachets ( which would be very cool to add to a toddler gift bag for school parties. Or a fun addition to a gift for a baby shower. ( I like to give toddler items, because everyone else gives baby items that are only used a short time)

Boogie Wipes make my life sooo much easier! There is no fighting little noses and because there is saline it makes it easier for a two year old to do things himself or herself.

Right now they are having a great promotion. If you redeem three UPC Labels you can redeem them for a Boogs doll/ stuffed animal. Just go to the Boogie Mom's Website here They will have a form to print out and send in. These are the details from their website.

    Sam's Club and Rebates

    Do you shop at Sam's Club? I do on occasion. It is about an hour from my house so not worth it unless I get a lot of things.  There are often Mail in Rebates for a variety of items and you can use your Sam's Club Purchases to qualify for many rebates.

    We went to Sam's Club on Saturday and I bought Swiffer refills because I NEVER find them on sale.  There is a mail in rebate on the swiffer website here.

    You must purchase $20.00 worth of Swiffer refill items to qualify for a $10.00 rewards card.

    The Swiffer Wet Jet Refills were $10.58
    The Swiffer Wet Clothes    were $14.87
    Total Before Rebate          is        $25.45
    The Gift Rewards care will be    - $10.00
    Total Cost after rebate                 $15.45

    In order to keep track of many rebates I recomend using the rebate tracker website here.

    BzzAgnet Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-a-Clean™ Power Sprayer

    Did I ever mention how much I LOVE BzzAgent. I get to try new things all the time that make my life so much easier!  Recently I was able to try the  Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-a-Clean Power Sprayer. This product is fun to use and great for the lovely 1970s tiles in my bathroom.

     I had the opportunity to try it today and I highly recommend it for several reasons.  The smell is not a typical chemical smell. After I used it my husband wanted to know why the house smells like citrus! They sent a ton of $5.00 off coupons! So if any friends are interested let me know!

    Let's Learn

    As I have mentioned before, I am seeking a position in Instructional Design and Technology. This career is basically using technology to develop training programs for adults in the business setting.  With that being said I have decided to use this blog as a resume builder. The first step was to design a PowerPoint Presentation that can be hosted on the blog. Of course going with the theme of this blog I used Googe Documents.

    The PowerPoint is called "Easy Ways to Save, Simply by Using your Computer"

    Please feel free to leave any comments or critics. And if you happen to be hiring for long term or short term training projects please contact me!
