SB: My Update + A Big Offer

So…. I’ve been absent from the blog and from SB for all of May and pretty much all of June.  May is just a super crazy time as it is the end of the school year – between the boys’ end of year activities, volunteering at the schools, helping teachers move classrooms (I’m up to helping with 4 moves in 3 years, lol), it is overwhelming crazy, but so fun, too.  I hated backing off from Swagbucks, as those pennies were really adding up, but priorities. And not enough hours in the day.

Then June came with summer activities and being out of the daily SB habit.  I’ve gone almost a week now, hitting goal every day and mostly with videos.  They are great right now, but I know that ebbs and flows. I was able to cash out for a $25 Amazon card yesterday and plan to get another $25 Amazon card tomorrow (1st $25 card of each month is only 2200 SBs), and still have some points to work toward another gift card as I try to rev back up.

It is easy and those Amazon cards are being stockpiled to go toward Christmas gifts.  Win – win!  Usually, any extra after the $25 Amazon card each month goes to Paypal to stash for another idea I’m working on.

So, all that said, the second purpose of this post… Swagbucks has a big offer available right now… a give some, get some kind of deal.  Read on for the deets…

Children’s Fund International has a special offer until the end of June through Swagbucks where you can earn up to 17,500 SB (that’s $175 in gift cards) for making recurring monthly donations and helping support an in-need child, improving their quality of life.

You’ll earn SB for each month you keep your sponsorship active – the longer you make valid donations, the more help your sponsor child receives & the more SB you can earn!

Earn 5,000 SB after your first month’s donation. That’s enough for a $50 gift card!
Earn 1,500 SB after your second month’s donation.
Earn 1,500 SB after your third month’s donation.
Earn 1,500 SB after your fourth month’s donation.
Earn 1,500 SB after your fifth month’s donation.
Earn 1,500 SB after your sixth month’s donation.
Earn 5,000 after your seventh month’s donation.

Click here to make your first donation and earn your first 5000 SB. As my referral, you’ll also get a bonus 300 SB paid out in early July.

This one is only good til the end of March, so grab it up while you can.

I did this deal (paid $3, got $8 in points back – if you’re a new signup, the deal is sweeter for you!) this past week while on vacation since it is a moneymaker and since it was a quick way to meet both points goals that day.  We didn’t have wifi, so videos weren’t an option.  800 SB points that credited instantly? Yes, please.

I’m putting ours up for our road trip this summer.
