How I Earned a Quick $35 Yesterday

card467Long time readers will know I’m a big fan of Swagbucks. It’s an easy way to cover my entertainment budget, save big on holiday shopping sprees and make money trying out new products i would otherwise be skeptical of. The downside of Swagbucks is that the site gives you so many different ways to earn that it can be complicated and hard to keep track of all it’s earning features.

Well, Swagbucks runs this promotion once a month called SWAGO. It’s like BINGO, except each square takes you to a different part of their site where you can earn points, called SB, doing something easy online. You get paid for filling out your board – the more spaces you fill out, the bigger your bonus! This month, the bonus for filling out your whole board is 300 SB, which you can redeem for a $3 gift card right away. But, that’s just the start of your earnings with SWAGO. Because the game takes you to every nook and cranny of their site, you end up earning a ton of points along the way and learning if Swagbucks is right for you.

How much? Well it varies a bit, but I just completed every square this afternoon and ended up with 3,492 SB, just 9 SB shy of $35 worth of PayPal Cash or any Gift Card I could imagine. The full breakdown is below but the shorter version is I made $35 online this afternoon clicking around the web in my pajamas.

Here’s how I racked up the SB on SWAGO:

– Completed my Survey Profile: 4 SB
– Set my Swag Name: 4 SB
– Completed a Gold Survey on Desktop: 100 SB
– Signed up for a $3 trial of Dollar Shave Club on the Swagbucks App: 1,000 SB
– Signed up for a $10 trial of BirchBox (to gift to a friend): 1,500 SB
– Watched Jimmy Fallon Clips on my SwagButton: 3 SB
– Watched News Headlines on the Swagbucks TV App: 3 SB
– Disqualified from a Gold Survey on the Swagbucks App: 1 SB
– Referred my Mom and convinced her to try a $50 Groupon, earning her 350 SB. Because of the Three For All referral program, she earned 650 SB total, and I get 335 SB for Referring her: 335 SB
– Purchased a $25 Dominos Pizza Gift Card on MyGiftCardsPlus for Friday’s pizza night: 135 SB
– Searched “Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe” on Swagbucks Search and earned SB: 9 SB
– Watched a few cooking show clips on Swagbucks Watch on my desktop: 4 SB
– Completed a Gold Survey on my desktop: 75 SB
– Redeemed a free Swag Code on the SwagButton: 4 SB
– Read a short entertainment news article on nCrave: 2 SB
– Redeemed a free Swag Code on my Swagbucks App: 3 SB
– Completed the Additional Survey Profiler: 5 SB
– Attempted Survey that was at Max Capacity: 1 SB
Subtotal: 3,192 SB
– Redeemed my SB for a $25 PayPal Gift Card to complete my last SWAGO square…

Getting me a 300 SB Bonus for Completing SWAGO! Total Earned 3,492 SB

Tonight I am going to watch a few more funny animal videos to get me over the line so I can redeem another $15 in Gift Cards to add to my splurge fund!

The Must Have for EVERY season: #thaumaturgic Bio Mist Spray

biomistAhh, summer.  Mosquito bites, sunburns and plenty of fun new scratches.  It’s funny that we tell kids not to pick and scratch at their skin abrasions, then we pretty much all do the same thing.  I know I do anyway.  When I read that Theralight could help with itching skin, I was super excited.  For whatever reason, I attract every biting insect within a 10 mile radius, they just love me.  So I tried it out with an evil mosquito bite.  Initially, the cool topical mist provides an instant itch relief on the area of the bite but after it dries the itching begins, at least the first dozen or so times.  Eventually, the itchiness went away even before the bite was gone.


The true test, for me anyway, was on razor burn.  I seriously hate it and every time I get it I become a whining child.  Being itchy and mature about it at the same time does not work for me.  You get one or the other, unfortunately it is not an option I tend to get a choice in.  I recently used a razor that apparently needed to be thrown out along with a my husband’s shaving cream and the combination was lethal.  The legs were somewhat burned but the bikini area was super burned.  Needless to say, after I got out of the shower lotion seemed out of the question.  Immediately after spritzing my legs and bikini area with Thaumaturgic Bio Mist, the burning and itching stopped.  The great thing was, it never came back.  Just for the heck of it, I spritzed my legs again that night but they never became inflamed again.  Typically, day two is itchy and terrible but not this go round!

Thaumaturgic Bio Mist is a hypo-allergenic mist that helps to intensify your skins healing capabilities.  According to the company, it has been used to treat sun burns, skin abrasions, acne, redness and inflammation due to waxing, piercings, soothing newly tattood skin, rosacea, fine lines, swelling, scar reduction, reduce pores and even more.  I played with it for a few weeks and found it to be quite convenient.  I am really loving it.  In this time, I have used it for mosquito bites, torn skin (I have a nasty habit of peeling the skin around my nails), razor burn on my legs and bikini area, as well as itchiness due to trimming back growth on my fence and shrubs.

So, over all I have to say I am loving the spray.  First off, because it has earned it’s place to make me stop being itchy without any harmful chemicals.  That’s generally enough for me!  It is free from all possible skin irritants (the company lists: parabens, fragrances, artificial colors, sodium sulfates, oils, alcohol and preservatives) and it is formulated for all skin types.  This is especially awesome for my household as we are an interracial family and many products that I can use irritate the heck out of Chief Zoo Keeper’s skin while many of his products make mine extremely oily.  It’s always nice to have one that will work for both of us!

So, check them out and get yours today.  Let me assure you, you are gonna make it one of your must have staples for pretty much anything skin related!  Due to the small amount required, a bottle should last a very long time, provided it is stored properly in a cool place (heat will evaporate any liquid!)  Theralight, Inc boasts the following:
