$5 off $25 at

If you go here, answer a question, and link your Amazon account to Facebook, you will receive $5 off a $25 purchase. You can set the privacy so that only you can see the post on your wall.

This offer is good until November 21st, and it can only be applied towards items sold by Amazon.

Need some shopping suggestions?
  • Firefly is available on Blu-ray for just $12.99. That is an amazing price for a fantastic show! (Plus, Serenity is available on Blu-ray for $8.99!)
  • I'm kind of obsessed with this Boo stuffed dog. Combining it with the companion book would make a fun gift.
  • I just got this adorable "Make Your Own Music Box" kit. Looks like it will be a fun project.

Extra Income: October 2012

Unfortunately, October was nowhere near as exciting as previous months. It started out incredibly sad and stressful when we found out that our dog would need surgery, and then it ended hiding out from a hurricane. I am hopeful that November will be better!

 I definitely lost my mojo with Swagbucks this month. I only was able to max out on the $5 Amazon gift cards ($25).

Total: $25

However, I am very excited with some changes being made to prize redemption. Basically the "price" of most of the gift cards has been lowered. I think this will change my strategy for the coming month. Plus the daily tracker is back, and I find myself a lot more motivated with those incentives.

I listed an item on eBay and I made $10.

Total: $10

I also made some cash ($3) on other survey sites.

Total: $3

I also sold a book on Amazon, and added $7 in cash.

Total: $7

Grand Total: $45

Compared to the past few months, this is very sad.

Plan for November:

  • I will continue to use Swagbucks
  • I will continue to add photos to my
  • I have listed some items on Ebay. 
  • I am starting to update my Etsy shop. 
  • I almost have enough for a $10 gift card on ShopKick
  • I have also signed up for Bing Rewards and I am close to earning a gift card from that.
