I (heart) free stuff!

As most of you know, the holidays are quickly approaching.  As a newly married, full time college student, it goes without saying that a little extra money for Christmas presents wouldn't be a bad thing.  I thought I would share two of my favorite websites with you in the hopes that you would be able to earn a few free gifts for your loved ones this holiday season.  I know what you're probably thinking, "Aren't those sites just scams?"  I would never recommend anything that I don't believe in.  The two following websites are ones that I personally use and have redeemed free stuff from.

Site #1: Swagbucks.com

What it is: Swagbucks is a website that is free and easy to use.  You preform searches and do other activities on the website to earn "swagbucks" which can then be redeemed for prizes or used to enter raffles.  The easiest way to win swagbucks is by using the search engine.  You use it like you would use Google.  Type in your search and you may win swagbucks!  Another way to win is to view videos on SBTV (Swagbucks TV).  Watch videos until your meter fills up and then you get swagbucks.  There are also ways to win swagbucks like voting on the daily poll, completing surveys, viewing the no obligation special offers, using coupons, and more!

My experience: I have been using swagbucks for just under a year and a half.  During that time I have redeemed 7 prizes.  In the past two weeks I have been using the site more often that I used to and have redeemed 3 prizes in that period alone!  My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon.com gift card.  I am currently saving up to use them to buy Christmas presents.

If you would like to join swagbucks.com, please consider using my referral info.  That way when you win, I win too! All you have to do is click the banner below and sign up.  :)

Search & Win

Site #2: MyCokeRewards.com

What it is: This site will only be useful if you drink Coke products.  If you didn't know it by now, I LOVE Diet Coke.  So I find this site extremely rewarding.  Have you ever noticed the code on the bottom of your twist off Coke caps?  Simply set up an account on the My Coke Rewards website and start entering your codes.  They can be found on all Coke products.  Once you set up an account online you can even set it up so that you can text your codes and they will add the points to your account.  It's so easy!

My experience: I have been using this website a little longer than the swagbucks.com website.  During the time that I have been a My Coke Rewards I have redeemed prizes such as various magazine subscriptions, gift cards, and even a backpack!  But there are so many other awesome prizes to choose from.  I currently have my eye on some very cool products from Snapfish.com.

Hopefully you have found this information interesting.  Do you use either swagbucks.com or mycokerewards.com?  Do you have another website that you would like to share?  Let me know, I would love to check it out!

Happy saving!


  1. Ohhh, I may try the Swagbucks thing. I use Amazon all the time and get points for them through my Chase card. Thanks for this cool post!

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I actually just redeemed another gift card! It is so easy to use and it is nice to be rewarded with free stuff! :)
