Ask The Swag Gal March 16, 2011

Today’s question comes from a user trying to get the most out of her Swagbucks experience:

Hey Swag gal,

I am just willing to BET (10 sb at least!) that a LOT of your most
loyal SWAGARNAUGHTS are stay at home moms and maybe even home
schoolers like I am!

I LOVE being the MOM and the messes and stress and lack of pay are
totally worth it, but lately SWAG BUCKS great deals through Living
Social and Group On Have me seriously thinking it may be time to do a
little something for “GASP” -myself !!

I know, it may just be a pipe dream, but wether I get a great deal
and get Swag bucks for it to boot, or I save up my bucks toward
something for me, My question is

What are your top 10 things to pamper yourself on Swagbucks?
Seriously, I love to look, but I never get any farther than that-
maybe your advice will help me find that thing for me, in the mean
time, the day dreams do help!

Thanks Swag Gal for the great way Swagbucks helps me earn something
back for the time I already spend on line!


Dear Rachel,

I would first like to thank you for being such a loyal Swagbucks user.  We appreciate you, and we truly want you to get the most out of your Swagbucks experience.  I am a big fan of this question, because it allows me to tell you about my 10 favorite prizes!  I think that everybody deserves to pamper themselves every now and again, and earning Swag Bucks while doing so just adds to the excitement!

If I was to pamper myself on Swagbucks, the first item I would consider is the TrialPay offer for up to 50% off your ProFlowers order.  I believe that flowers can always put someone in a better mood – the beautiful scents and vibrant colors are what do it.  If you truly want to pamper yourself, order yourself a bouquet of flowers and write yourself a nice little card.  When it’s delivered, although it might not be much of a surprise, it will still brighten your day!

Next, I would check out the TrialPay offer to save 20% off when you spend over $75 at  Spoil yourself with diamonds, pearls, and gemstones!  Plus, earn 675 Swag Bucks for completing the offer!

Of course what better way is there to pamper yourself than by treating yourself to a nice vacation?  Through the RadiumOne Special Offers, you can check out last minute packages on Travelocity and earn 162 Swag Bucks for booking it!

Being that I am a huge animal lover, I would pamper myself by sponsoring a distressed animal for as little as 60 cents a day.  Nothing warms my heart more than knowing that a once injured or abused animal is now in a  loving home.  Sponsor a pet through RadiumOne and earn 189 Swag Bucks.

I am very keen on staying active and healthy.  Through the SuperRewards Special Offers there is an offer for $29.99 monthly dues on a Keep Fit All-Club Sports Membership at 24 Hour Fitness.  Plus, you get 588 Swag Bucks once you sign-up and pay the $9.99 initiation fee!

The next item I would pamper myself with is a one year subscription to my guilty pleasure magazine, Elle.  Elle has all your tips and tricks to be fashionably fabulous!  You can get your 12 issues for only 999 Swag Bucks.

If I’ve saved up enough Swag Bucks, I would certainly treat myself to the Canon PowerShot SD1300 Digital Camera.  You can pretty much never find me without my camera – and if I don’t have my camera with me, you can be sure I’m using my cell phone to snap away!  There’s no better way to capture memories than through the magic of photographs.

I would love to snag myself the Dermalogica 6-piece Spa Body Therapy Kit for 6,825 Swag Bucks.  Keep your skin healthy and glowing for FREE with the included essential cleansing solution, multi-active toner, intensive moisture balance, gentle cream exfoliant, soothing eye makeup remover, intensive moisture mask, and carrying bag.

What girl doesn’t love to spoil herself with jewels?  I would trade in my 1,149 Swag Bucks for the gorgeous clustered black pearl pendant!  The colors are beautiful and the style is so versatile!

Lastly, I would snag myself quite a few entries in the Panasonic VIERA TC-P42GT25 42-inch 1080p 3D Plasma TV Swagstakes.  I’ve been such a fan of 3D movies lately that I would love to bring the exciting experience right to the comfort of my own home.

I hope that some, if not all, of these ideas made you light up in excitement!  Of course, these are merely my suggestions and my favorite prizes.  There are thousands of ways to wisely spend your Swag Bucks, but it all depends on your interests.

I’d like to now open this question up to the community.  What is your favorite way to pamper yourself through Swagbucks?


P.S. – If you have a question for me, send it to  If your question is chosen you’ll get 150 Swag Bucks!
