Don’t forget to do the bi-weekly Disney Trivia for five points. You don’t actually need to get the questions right, which is a good thing, because I usually don’t.
Sign into your account and click on “Earn Points.”
Happy Monday to you all!
Last night, a friend and I set up an Xbox for my kids. So much for plug and play. The thing took three hours and nearly gave me cardiac arrest. Seriously, aren’t these things supposed to get easier over time?
It’s trivia time! Check in for the Monday trivia and pick up a cool five points, no matter how many questions you answer correctly.
Giving Assistant is a new cashback shopping site, similar to Mr. Rebates and Ebates. The total returns look pretty good and the cofounder was kind enough to email me about it. Since I assume that nobody reads this blog (Hint: Subscribe above!), anybody who writes in gets a free mention. And a puppy. Okay, no puppy.
One nice feature of Giving Assistant is that it allows you to donate a portion of your earnings to charity, and it looks like they support some pretty interesting causes. Feel free to sign up and we’ll each get $5 (I get mine if you make a purchase and I thank you in advance.)!
Dosh is what I call “cash back shopping for lazy people.” It’s like any other cash back shopping site, except that it also works in brick and mortar stores. And the best part about it is, you don’t have to do anything. Just link a credit card or two to Dosh and, whenever you make a purchase at an eligible store with that card, it will pay you your rebate and send you a text telling you that it did so. You don’t have to do anything. If you make the purchase online, just access the store through Dosh’s app.
For signing up and linking purchase methods, you can get a sign-up bonus of up to $7. Then, go ahead and refer a bunch of your friends because, between now and January 21, you’ll get $15 per person who signs up and links a card. Thank you very much for signing up on your phone through my link!
I’ve test-driven the app and can tell you that it does work, since I’ve been rewarded for brick and mortar store purchases. Dosh advertises bank-level encryption.
Cheers. Here are a couple of bonuses to start off 2018 right.
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 and other ways. Often, there are offers that will give you more back in points value than they actually cost to complete, meaning that you’ll get a free product and make a profit.
Sign up now, or at least before January 31, and we each get 300 points (which they call Swagbucks). That’s $3 in value just to sign up which, of course, costs nothing. I’d really appreciate it if you use my link so that we both get credit. Thanks!
This one looks like it could be kind of interesting. You can earn up to 900 bonus points (~$5-6) by setting a goal for yourself on how many offers you will complete in January. If you hit your target, you’ll get the bonus points. The higher your goal, the more bonus points that you will earn.
Signup is free and I kindly request that you use my referral link to do so. Thank you!
I’m easing back into the New Year, so bear with me for a few days while I get my bearings and work off a stomach bug.
Disney Movie Rewards is offering bonus points for the New Year. I received 18 and, frankly, I’m not sure how they came up with that number. But hey, who am I to turn down free points? They’re also offering a $5 concessions coupon for your next Disney movie, which should be good for something like two pieces of popcorn.
It means the internet is working.
It also means that I’m out of town and won’t be posting again until January. Be sure to subscribe in the box to the right and be one of the first to know when I’ve started posting again! I know that’s not exactly a resounding call to action, but it makes me feel good.
In any case, have a great Christmas, Chanukah or whatever you happen to celebrate, and an even better new year.
Before I forget, I’d like to note that the subscription box is working, once and for all. Just enter your email to the right and you’ll get my nonsense on a daily basis. If you have Gmail, it may show up in your Promotions or Social box.
Kellogg’s seems to have prematurely ended its Spin to Win game, but you can still earn up to 600 points by completing the introductory freebies. Scroll to the bottom of your account dashboard and you’ll see six easy ways to earn 100 points per “task.”
Don’t forget the following contests, which you can enter daily and 20 times per day, respectively. They’re both free.
Top Cash Back: Enter daily by visiting the merchant of the day and clicking on the little bird that flies across your screen. You probably won’t win, but you have nothing to lose.
Coca-Cola: Enter up to 20 times per day by filling out the simple form with the occasional not-so-simple Captcha code. You can win a variety of prizes. Yesterday, I won a drink at AMC Theaters and a $25 Shutterfly gift card.
For the second night in a row, a Boston sports team pulled off a last-second stunner, so I’m just a bit shaky this morning. Best as I can tell, the Red Sox haven’t started yet.
Earn 100 points for entering code HOLIDAYS25PTSKFR at KFR, which leads to the question of why you’d have 25 points noted in a code that offers 100 points. We are talking about KFR, though, so your guess is as good as mine.
Also, the Spin to Win game seems to be temporarily under the weather. It’s not supposed to expire until the 21st, but again, this program is not the most consistent.
So what are we calling this program now, anyway? For now, I’m putting it under “Coca-Cola Offers.” In any case, you can enter a sweepstakes to win lots of good stuff. You can enter up to 20 times per day, so hopefully, you’ll win something. I won an AMC large drink voucher, which I value at about $42.
