Little Extra Stories: Joan’s Dog Days

Posted by on Mon, October 12th, 2015 at 1:50 pm

Joan (Swagname: Jaon) from Leonard, MI started using Swagbucks as a way to help with Christmas gifts for her family but this year is going to be different.

After having a lower back fusion, she is trying to earn more SB because she has not been able to dog-sit. She and her husband used to volunteer at a dog shelter in Muskegon, MI until her husband’s job moved them. They have adopted 27 dogs in the last 15 years!  

Her husband of 38 years just had a full knee replacement and is not getting paid during his recovery.  Swagbucks means more to her than ever! Now she cashes out her SB for either Walmart gift cards for groceries or PayPal gift cards to pay help pay their mortgage.  

“I am so thankful that I have been using Swagbucks and I have my husband working on it now too! So, I want to thank Swagbucks for being here for us this year!”

Joan, we always love to hear stories how Swagbucks helps people when they are down. We hope Swagbucks helps you get back on your feet not only for you and your husband’s sake but also for all the dogs that could use your love. Of course, we are honored and privileged to be able to give you an extra 1000 SB for sharing your story.
