a few deals....

I headed out today to pick up a few deals.  I actually spent less than $3 bucks if you take into account the $3 rebate from CheckOut51.  Not to mention, I got a $2 bonus as well, making it $5 I earned!

Walgreens: .91!

CVS: $2.56 but I will get back $3 from CheckOut51, so a little bit of a moneymaker.

Walmart: .21!
*Loving the FREE markers!

mail & survey.

It's always fun to get some 'good' things in the mail.  I received a $5 gift card from subway thanks to this post on Hip2save.  I also got 3 coupons for a FREE snickers bar.  Lots of people were winning from this particular sweepstakes.  Finally, I LOVE my FREE magazine subscriptions to my 'gossip' magazines.  US Weekly is my absolute favorite, so the fact I get is FREE is just great!

*I've cashed in for a few of my survey companies too!  Check below!

Swagbucks- $5 Amazon Gift Card

Ipoll- $50 Paypal 

Valued Opinions- $20 Amazon Gift Card
One thing I really like about Valued Opinions is the rewards are INSTANT.  As soon as I request the amazon gift card, within a minute it's in my email.

show me the money....

*A few ways I make extra money AT home. By no means will you 'get rich' from taking surveys, but I do love getting some extra $$.  I often take survey's while I'm on the computer doing other things such as paying bills or emailing the husband.

Ebates: I scored a nice size check from ebates simply from shopping at home.  Most of this money came from shopping online.  If you have to shop online, you might as well extra money for doing so!  Check out the details HERE, on how you can earn cash back too. sent you $41.70 USD

Note from
Dear Valued Member, Thank you for using Ebates every time you shop online. Congratulations, here is your Big Fat Payment! Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have about your payment or your Ebates account. Happy shopping! Sincerely, Ebates Customer Care
Thank you for using Ebates every time you shop online!

Surveyhead: A great survey company that pays YOU for taking surveys. I normally cash out for Paypal, but this time I opted for a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

Valued Opinions: Another great survey company that pays for taking simple surveys. I often get to try 'products' for this company as well. I recently cash out for TWO $20 Amazon Gift Cards.

ACOP:  I was surprised to check my account balance and realized I had earned $46.60 for surveys!  These surveys don't come as often, but they normally product a good pay rate & offer great products to test.
Your cash-out request has been entered into the system. Your PayPal account will be credited for $46.60 within 1-6 weeks. Thank you very much for being a member of American Consumer Opinion®! 

I-Say-  This is an 'okay' company.  I typically don't earn as much or qualify for many surveys, but I will take the survey's when I'm already on the computer. Here I earned $15 via paypal.

Ipsos Interactive Services sent you $15.00 USD
