I don’t know about you, but when back to school shopping begins my wallet suffers. Between school supplies and clothing for two girls, the cost rises quickly. Last year my girls attended school in Colorado where the weather gets cold in the winter. We stocked up on sweat shirts and warm clothes. Well this year they will be attending school in Alabama. Wow, talk about a climate change. All those winter clothes I had stocked up on won’t get much use. Not only am I dealing with the climate change and growing kids, but school dress codes have changed as well.

I’m giving my wallet a break by using Swagbucks to save money and earn cashback that I plan to use toward Christmas shopping this year.
With Swagbucks you earn points by watching videos, taking survey’s, shopping online through their links and discovering content on the web. Each point is worth one cent. I know it doesn’t sound like much but it adds up fast. I average about $25 a month, which is perfect because once you reach $25 you can redeem your points for gift cards. In my case I’m saving up my points to buy Christmas presents.
You can search for a specific merchant or browse the featured stores.
Because I was specifically looking for gym shoes for my kids, I chose the shoes category on the left sidebar. This is what Swagbucks gave me:
You can see exactly how much your cash back will be as well as deals and promo codes you can use. I chose to purchase through Shoe Carnival, so I clicked the “shop now” button. Swagbucksthen opens up the store website but continues to track your purchases. Right now Shoe Carnival has a BOGO sale!!!
From this point on all you do is choose your items, add them to your cart and checkout like normal.
YourSwagbucks and cashback will be awarded once your order has shipped.
So I got a pair of Nike’s for my oldest, Sketcher’s for my 6 year old and a pair of new Reef sandals for myself. Using the BOGO promo code provided by Swagbucks I only spent $114 total and earned 342 Swagbucks.
If you shop online give Swagbucks a try! If you click the link below to sign up you’ll get a $5 bonus just for signing up! That’s probably the easiest $5 you’ll ever make.
