Disney Movie Rewards: 10 Free Points

Trivia Time! Disney Movie Rewards does free trivia every two weeks. It takes about two minutes and gets you five free points.

First, head here and do the trivia questions. You don’t need to get them right to earn five points. Participation is all that counts.

Then, change the “118” on the end of the URL to “117.” Presto! You’ll get the hidden quiz for five points.

 

Free Disney Movie Rewards Points

It’s that time again! Be sure to check your email for your monthly newsletter from Disney Movie Rewards. If you’re not subscribed, head to the website and do so. I picked up a whopping four points. Hey, it adds up.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: 100 Free Points

Okay, maybe another while I’m on vacation. Head on over to Kellogg’s Family Rewards and pick up 100 points for entering their special Easter code. Here’s a hint: The code is below.

Enjoy!

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: Possible 200 Points

Okay, maybe just one while I’m on vacation.

I got one of those “free points for signing in emails” from KFR. It told me that it would give me 200 free points just for signing in. I don’t know what kind of calendar they use, since I signed in a week ago, but who am I to turn down free points?

I don’t know if the email was targeted, but here’s the code, just in case. Worst case scenario, you click on it and get nothing after you sign in. Best case, 200 points. Enjoy.

 

Out of Office Notice

Greetings all. I’m going to be spending the next week or so on the road, so posts will be fewer and further between than normal. Have a great week!

Swagbucks Member Recognition: Reward Levels

Swagbucks* is one of my favorite survey/shop/get-paid-to sites and, when I get around to putting up my survey page, it’ll be ranked at the top. They make it relatively easy to earn money and, even more important, to cash out. They have their own currency, which you can convert to cash. 100 Swagbucks (SB) equals $1.

A few weeks ago, they introduced a member recognition program, which looks similar to the lifetime programs of the standard frequent flyer plans. Note that the program is new, so registration isn’t universally open. They have promised, however, that everyone will be able to register sometime in April.

Swagbucks Member Recognition: Prizes at (Most) Levels

swagbucks

The various reward levels

Swagbucks hasn’t told us what each level will get you, but I’ve done a bit of digging and come up with most of the answers. Suffice it to say, the awards aren’t quite as exciting as one would find in a traditional loyalty program, but they get better as you go higher. Level 9, for instance, gets you a $150 bonus.

I did a little digging and got most of the rewards for each level, but not all of them. Since level 9 gets you $150, I’m really curious what 10 produces. Here’s what I know so far:

swagbucks

Level 3: Onyx

You can redeem for gift cards, and level 3 members will get rebated 100 SB ($1) on their first redemption.  PayPal gift cards, by the way, are eligible for the added bonus.

The real benefit here, though, is the double points on your next two survey completions. Surveys can be worth up to several hundred SB, so a $5 survey, for example, becomes a $10 prize.

swagbucks

Level 4: Amethyst

Similar to level 3, although you’ll get double points on your first three completed surveys once you reach level 4.

swagbucks

Level 5: Jade

Getting more interesting. Your gift card rebate is now $1.25 and you’ll still get another double SB bonus on a survey. You’ll also get a bonus if you make a shopping purchase through the site. Use their shopping portal to earn extra cash back (in this case, an additional $3) on your first purchase once you hit level 5.

swagbucks

Level 6: Topaz

I started off at Topaz. Didn’t get around to using my shopping bonus, but I did make a few extra dollars for the bonus surveys and gift card redemption.

swagbucks

Level 7: Sapphire

Okay, they’re not the most creative folks, but the rewards are a little better. You’re up to a $5 bonus on the shopping, along with your other bonuses.

Level 8: Emerald

Level 8 introduces a new benefit, real-time shipping. In other words, there’s no 2-3 day delay when you redeem for most gift cards up to $25. You’re also now up to a 1,000 SB ($10) on your next shopping purchase.

swagbucks

Level 9: Ruby

Here’s where it gets really interesting. In addition to  the other benefits, you’ll pick up an instant $150 bonus. Of course, you need to have earned 1,000,000+ SB lifetime to get the benefit, so start collecting now.

There is a level 10, but I don’t know what you get there. Hopefully, the surprise will be revealed soon.

Overall, I’d expect the program to expand over time, but for now, it offers some basic rewards to those who dedicate a little more time to the site.

 


Swagbucks is a referral program and we both get something if you sign up with my link. Thanks!

 

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: Potential 200 Free Points

Every once in a while, I’ll get an email from Kellogg’s Family Rewards. They’ll tell me that I haven’t logged in in a while and my points will expire. They’ll offer me a few hundred points to sign in. That’s odd, since I get these emails frequently. Perfect. Free bonuses.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: Costs you no money and get your points for free

In any case, I got another one yesterday. Don’t know if it will work for anyone else, but you can try getting your free 200 points here, just by signing in. It will take 24 hours for the points to show up.

 

Disney Movie Rewards: Five Points

Disney Movie Rewards again, but first…

One would think that unemployment would mean that I would have more time to write posts. And yet, I’ve slowed down. I’ve discovered that it actually is possible to relax. The stress level is way down, I’ve lost five pounds and I’m thinking of doing something fun with all the survey sites I write about. In any case…

Disney Movie Rewards Trivia

Pick up five free points from Disney Movie Rewards when you answer the once-every-two-weeks trivia question. Answer a few questions, get some points. Nice how it works out, huh?

 

$2.85 From Swagbucks Cash And Other Stuff

A couple of housekeeping items, and then we’ll get to the good stuff on Swagbucks..

First, I’d once again like to complain about the quality of the spam that I get. Seriously, if you name yourself “Cialis,” the filters are going to catch you. Put some effort into it.

Second, after 19 years in the financial services industry (with a brief interruption), it appears that my career has come to an end. On to the next thing, whatever that is. Don’t see myself making a fortune blogging. As far as I know, the only things that generate income on this site are clicks on the Google Ads. Do I even have ad banners? I’ll have to look into that.

Maybe I can make a living doing surveys. Hmm, $50/month from 50 different survey companies. $30k per year. I’ll look into that…

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Free And Easy $2.85 from Swagbucks (And Then Some)…

swagbucks

Not exactly the big bucks, but every bit helps.

If you’re not signed up for Swagbucks*, you really should be. It’s a search engine that randomly gives you points for searching. You never know where or when they will come. You can also earn points through surveys, offers, purchases, signing up for newsletters and other ways. The surveys are particularly good and generally pay more than other websites. But the easy return on capital (i.e., your time), comes from the sign-up offers. It’s easy. They have a bunch of merchants who are willing to pay you just to sign up for their newsletter. I have no idea why companies are willing to pay me just for my email. Don’t care. I have a secondary email where I send stuff that doesn’t get read as often. Added bonus: They’re instituting a loyalty program.

This is what I did in the past week. I didn’t work particularly hard at it, so there’s plenty more out there. Sorry i don’t have the direct links, but they’re pretty easy to find on the site:

Sign Up for Newsletter from:        Get:

Enfamil                                                   $.25

Domino’s                                               $.25

Kellogg’s Family Rewards           $1.00

Myrtle Beach Hotel                         $.05

Huggies                                                  $.50

Pillsbury                                                $.40

Betty Crocker                                    $.40

All of the above took me a few minutes, since all they wanted was an email. Some wanted a bit more information, but I’m not concerned with snail mail.

You, too, can sign up for Swagbucks and become a billionaire millionaire at least $2.85 richer. Yup, that’s a referral link, but they’ll also start you with a bonus of some sort (I don’t actually know how much. I’d appreciate it if somebody who signs up throws a note in the comments.).

Enjoy!
