Hi Readers and Happy Holidays! Check out this neat opportunity from Swagbucks! Click HERE to join Swagbucks if you have not already.
The holidays are a time to celebrate but they are also a time of giving. There are so many people that don’t have the privilege of a holiday experience they justly deserve, whether it be gifts or a hearty meal.
While we celebrate with our family and friends it is important to reflect on all the blessings that have been bestowed on us and remember that we have a duty to help others. That’s why Swagbucks is humbly asking all of you to be Santa’s Lil Helpers this holiday season in their newest Team Challenge!
For the first time ever Swagbucks will allow us to donate your Team Challenge bonuses to a charity of our choice! The season of giving begins Monday, December 14th at 8am PT/12pm ET so get in a giving mood. The Team Challenge ends Friday, December 18th at 12pm PT/3pm ET but you are encouraged to stay in the holiday spirit through New Years of course!
All members who participate and contribute at least 200 points to their team’s total will be receive a SB bonus. Members of the 1st place team will receive a 40 SB bonus, members of the 2nd place team will receive a 20 SB bonus!
On Monday, December 21st you’ll receive an Inbox message asking if you want to donate your Team Challenge Bonus to a charity of your choice. If you accept, we will donate your bonus, in your name, to your charity!

Once you do, you will be able to join the Team Challenge right away and start getting paid for doing your everyday online tasks. 'Tis the season to get Swagging and do some good, so lets have some fun and spread the joy!
hi readers! Happy Thanksgiving to you all :) ready for Black Friday Shopping? ready to see how you can use Swagbucksto get Triple Cash Back? read on...
Most of us have some sort of cash back rewards on our credit or debit cards. Every time we use them, we get a percentage back in the form of cash or redeemable points that we can save in our rainy day fund, or use to splurge guilt-free, depending on your personality. But you may not know that, with Swagbucks, you could be multiplying those cash back rewards without changing anything about your credit card or spending habits. As you finalize your holiday shopping plans, don't miss out on this chance to double, triple or even quadruple your cash back from online shopping!
Here's how it works - Swagbucks, which always offers great cash back on major online retail sites throughout the year, is doubling their rewards for the entire holiday season. But wait - Starting 8pm ET on Friday 26 November through Monday 30 November, they are offering Triple Cash Back at a huge range of featured online stores plus a wide range of specialty businesses to choose from in order to find the perfect gifts. All you have to do is click on the retailer's link from Swagbucks and shop from there - that's it!
Keep using your usual card to get your usual cash back rewards, and rack up triple rewards at Swagbucks on the side. The rewards Swagbucks offer differ across retailers, so expect anything from 3% to 24% Cash Back, on top of whatever your card offers not to mention the retailers' massive sales.
As always, with the SB you earn on Swagbucks you can get Visa cash cards or Pay Pal deposits or pick from a huge range of gift cards, some at discounted prices. What's that? you prefer waiting in the freezing cold lines to shopping at home in your jim-jams for the holidays? Well ok, it's a tradition of sorts, I guess. But make sure you put your time in line to good use - with Swagbucks Mobile Apps, you can put cash back in your wallet just by shivering with your smartphone in hand!
Plus, when members use the new Swagbucks Mobile App on November 27 they will be entered into a 50000 SB Christmas Giveaway! For every 25 SB you earn through the Mobile App, you'll get an entry into a drawing for 50000 SB or 1 of 20 prizes for 10000 SB. With all these deals you can't lose, and hopefully you can save that little extra to stretch your holiday budget as far as it needs to go this year. First time hearing about Swagbucks? Well you're missing out! Sign up for free HERE!
Yup, it's that time of year again. Time to start getting ready for family, turkey, and deals! To get the feasting started, lets start with the Swag Feast Team Challenge. We love Swagbucks Team Challenges because they get our competitive streak going and they are such an easy way to get cash back for stuff we were already doing.
This Swag Fest Team Challenge is no different - starting next week, you can earn 200 SB for your team and get up to 520 bonus SB added on top!So pull up a chair to the table, there’s plenty to go round at Swagbucks. Search the spread for your favorite fowl, white or dark, just save us a leg. Discover delicious dressings, try our gravy or cranberry sauce (canned or fresh) or even both if you’re feeling adventurous. Watch the mashed potatoes and corn bread stuffing though, they’re always a favorite so grab some quick. Don’t forget to Survey our dessert table for your favorite apple, pumpkin or pecan pie unless you’re overquota!
The feast will begin November 16th at 9am PT/12pm ET so get ready to gobble up those points, but you can sign up for your team as early as November 12th. The Swag Feast Team Challenge isn’t over until you hit the next hole in your belt (or November 20th at 12pm PT/3pm ET, whichever comes first)!
All members who participate and contribute at least 200 points to their team’s total will receive an exclusive Swag Up Shop Bonus. With the Swag Up Shop Bonus you’ll receive a 100 SB Bonus on up to 5 transactions at unique stores. That means, if you qualify for the Swag Up Bonus, you’ll receive a 100 SB Bonus every time you shop at a unique store up to 5 times (no minimum purchase value, must be a qualifying purchase).

Each member of each team, depending on where the team places will receive a SB bonus! 1st place: 20 SB 2nd place: 15 SB 3rd place: 10 SB 4th place: 5 SB.So get out there and Swag your team to victory!

hi readers! long time since i have posted. well, lots going on. here are some updates:
--thanks for stopping by to read my blog
--there may be less product reviews on my blog as the company i was blogging for, they seemed to change their platform, so harder to get things to review and blog about. it is ok. i have acquired quite a bit, so it is a welcomed change.
--i want to get back to doing more blog hops/memes/fill in the blank post. let me know if you know of any good ones.
--i may be having an upcoming cataract surgery coming up. it is one of the side effects of a previous surgery i had in my eyes to fix my detached retinas.
--best news all week is this: i have a new cousin! he was born May 27, 2015. he is such a blessing. he has been 12 years in the making for my aunt and uncle. Congratulations to them!!! they kept it a secret until he was here as there have been many years of heartache due to MANY miscarriages etc. i understand their reasoning. but he is here now and doing well and now is home with his mom and dad. they are older parents (late 40's-50 for mom and mid 60's for dad) so i wish them a long and healthy life to see their son grow. a true blessing and miracle indeed. this event warmed my heart and made me realize there is still hope for me and all my other friends that may be going though a difficult time conceiving.

Check out the pictures below of her work and products. Feel free to like her Facebook page (she will get a kick out of that!) Facebook link/page: https://www.facebook.com/patriciathesoapmaker
What The Soap Maker sells: Well, yes, Soaps, but so much more too! All products are organic and natural and handmade. She sells: soaps ( BIG, incredible scents, and rich lather), lotion bars (extream moisture and they last a while), body sprays, cold and flu spray (it really works too!), and bath salts. She uses good quality essential oils and has something for everyone! Got a cold/sinus issues...she has a soap for that! Got an itch or psoriasis and/or eczema or acne...she has a soap for that! Got PMS...she has a soap for that and it smells amazing and makes your forget about your PMS! She even has product for your furry 4 legged friends too! She has thought of it all.
