Retail Therapy Fills in the Downtime

As most of you know, TSGal is out this week serving her civic duty – yep, she’s got Jury Duty!  On her lunch breaks I get a quick chance to talk to her, and the only updates I get are what’s happening in her book, what movie she just finished watching, and what songs she’s listening to on her long lunch breaks.  Needless to say, Jury Duty can offers hours of down time.  To prepare for your summons, stock up on books, movies, and good tunes to keep yourself occupied.  Fortunately, these are all items that you can find through Swagbucks Shop & Earn!  Remember, you’ll earn Swag Bucks for every dollar you spend.

Head over to Kobo Books to pick out some good reads while you wait.  Want to stick with the theme?  Try Alex Cross’s Trial by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo.  Shop now and you’ll earn 4 Swag Bucks for every dollar spent.

Stock up on magazines!  You’ll be surprised how quickly you go through them.  Visit and pick out your favorites.  Currently, they have over 100 magazines on sale.  Personally, I’m a big fan of Vanity Fair.  Shop now and you’ll earn 13 Swag Bucks for every dollar spent.

Right now, MacConnection is offering a special coupon for their Skullcandy Headphones category.  Don’t even try to go to Jury Duty without an MP3 player and good music – it’s nearly torture without it.  Shop now and earn 2 Swag Bucks for every dollar spent.

If you have a portable gaming system (SNES, Nintendo 3DS, WiiU, etc.), BRING IT!  I promise you, you will not regret it.  Head over GameStop and shop for some entertaining, time-killing, boredom-solving video games.  I recommend any and all Super Mario games – they’re my favorite!  Shop now and earn 1 Swag Buck for every dollar spent.

What’s your favorite way to pass the time?
