Swagbucks - extending your fun money!
In our budget, we have categories we call fun money (one for me and one for John). John tends to use his for camera's and lenses, and so far I've been mostly saving mine for a laptop-though I occasionally use some money to purchase books I'm interested in.
One way in which I've painlessly increased my book fun money has been to use swagbucks as a search engine. It's similar to searching with google - though it seems to take slightly longer and you will receive sponsored links in addition to regular links.
I've been using swagbucks for a few searches each day since about May and have earned $25 in amazon gift cards (one amazon gift card can be redeemed with 45 swagbucks). There are many other prizes as well, but the amazon gift cards tend to give the greatest flexibility in spending them. Some of the bucks can be earned through entering codes given through their searchbar which you can download here after becoming a member. According to one blog I read, this week there will codes in the toolbar each day for a free swagbuck, so now is a good time to join.
If you join using my link, you will help me to earn more swagbucks in addition to receiving 3 free yourself for signing up.
