1/3/12 CVS Diaper Savings

With a three month old in the home, diapers are essential. There is absolutely no reason to buy diapers full price! Sales abound, and Amazon Mom is always waiting in the wings to help out when you need it. Today, I happened to find a fabulous deal at CVS. Check out my purchase:

  • Pampers Cruisers box retails for $22.99.
  • CVS had the diapers on sale for $18.99 with the Extra Care card.
  • I used two $2 off coupons that I’d gotten in a previous box of Pampers.
  • I had a $3 off baby care purchase of $15 from a previous CVS purchase.
  • I also had $15 Extra Bucks from previous CVS purchases.

After tax, I paid $17.78 for my two boxes of Pampers Cruisers. CVS offered a deal for a $10 CVS Cash Card for any qualifying $30 purchase. Since my diapers cost more than $30 before all my Extra Bucks and coupons, they qualified for the deal and I got $10 back! In the end, I paid $7.78 for two boxes of diaper, making them $3.89 a piece – $19.10 off the original price. This totals out to less than $0.05 a diaper and savings of over 80%! AMAZING! Extra Bucks can really pay off when you use them for things you really need. Love it!

1/1/12 Swagbucks Update

One of the side features of Free This Week is my adventure with Swagbucks. I have challenged myself (read the post here) to earn enough Swagbucks for a free 2012 Christmas! At first, I thought this was a pretty lofty goal. After just two weeks of being a Swagbucks member, however, I think this may actually be possible! Let me explain.

Every day, I log on to the Swagbucks website and complete a few short tasks. I take the Daily Poll, complete the NOSO (No Obligation Special Offers), and browse the Trusted Surveys. I search a few times using my toolbar. Occasionally I complete a Special Offer. I usually complete at least one round of Swagbucks TV. Here is a breakdown of what I earn every day in just a few minutes:

  • Daily Poll: 1 Swagbuck
  • NOSO: 2 Swagbucks
  • Trusted Surveys: Varies, at least 5 Swagbucks
  • Toolbar: 1 Swagbuck
  • Search wins: Varies, at least 7 Swagbucks
  • Special Offer: Varies, at least 5 Swagbucks
  • SBTV: 3 Swagbucks per round

Every day, with about ten minutes of my time, I earn 24 Swagbucks. This doesn’t sound like much, but it is enough to earn nearly two $5 Amazon gift cards a month. Depending on the surveys I might qualify for, I can earn hundreds of Swagbucks just by answering some questions. Swagbucks allows you to complete 25 rounds of SBTV a day. Many of the Special Offers are free, require only an email address, and earn up to 50 or 60 Swagbucks. (The ones that require purchases can earn hundreds or thousands).

I became a member of Swagbucks on 12/15/11. Today is 1/1/12, and I have earned 2,355 Swagbucks! That is enough for 5 $5 Amazon gift cards! I earned $25 in just two weeks by searching the internet and watching TV. I completed one paid offer, BUT — I spent $2 on the offer and earned enough points to buy a $5 Amazon gift card. That is the only purchase I have made AND I have no referrals under me. (Referrals earn you matched points up to 1000 Swagbucks and are the fastest way to earn. I’m not even using that feature yet!) Swagbucks is really an amazing site and at this rate, I will be able to earn enough to pay for Christmas with no problem at all!

I will continue to post my Swagbucks progress as I continue along. I anticipate great things from this site and encourage you to join. Help me earn by being a referral! Go to http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/abuck924 to sign up. Who couldn’t use a little extra cash here and there?!
