Need an idea to start saving for Christmas???

Can you believe that Christmas is less than 6 months away?  It is time to start saving and thinking about Christmas shopping so you’re not so stressed when the time comes!
*One of my first tips to people who are stressed about Christmas when their budget is already spread so thin…SWAGBUCKS!  Once I saved up all my swagbucks gift cards for the entire year and used that to help buy Christmas Presents!  I cashed in for Amazon Gift Cards and I was able to buy some of my christmas presents using that.  These are FREE gift cards for doing something you are probably already doing, searching online!  Even if you can only earn about 15 swagbucks each day (which is easy to do) that will still give you a $5.00 gift card by the end of each month.  If you really put your mind to it, you can easily earn more!  It may not buy all of your Christmas Presents, but it can definitely help!
 How It Works

Sign up is easy and free to do. Go here and fill out the information.  Once that is complete, you are now eligible to do all sorts of different things for “swags”. One of the items that I used to constantly get was the $5.00 Amazon Gift Card, because it only takes 450 Swagbucks.
My new favorite gift card through Swagbucks, however, is a Target $5.00 gift card. That gift card only needs 500 swagbucks to earn.

  1. I can’t seem to figure out how to earn Swagbucks quickly enough for them to add up. You’ve inspired me to look back into it and see if I can get started on my holiday gifts!

  2. I LOVE Swagbucks for this reason! I print the coupons from their site too – 10 points for everyone redeemed! If a friend needs a coupon, I print it for her, too! I saved up over $300 of Amazon gift cards last year this way! WOot!

  3. I’ve never participated the whole swagbucks thing, because it was too much on my plate. But now I have a whole new perspective about the program since reading your post. I’m really going to try to utilize it more to help out with shopping.

  4. Christmas is approaching soon. I plan to start Christmas Shopping as soon as I can get all of my kids birthdays done.

  6. I tried Swagbucks but never got the hang of it

  8. I had forgotten all about swagbucks! What a great idea for saving money for Christmas, thanks!
