In August of 2011, I found out my boyfriend (at the time, now my husband), Josh, and I were expecting a baby. Our joy and happiness soon wore off when I starting having many complications with the pregnancy. At the time, I was a full time Pastry Chef for a very busy Casino, working at least 50 hours a week, if not more. Right around when I found out I was expecting, one of my friends told me about Swagbucks. I signed up, but right at first wasn’t too into it because I didn’t think I had the time for it, and most days I was so exhausted, I would come home and sleep. Around October of 2011, the Casino cut my hours back, because my health and the baby’s health were deteriorating. I really started in on Swagbucks at that time, and couldn’t believe how easy it was to rack up the bucks! I found the Facebook page, and went from someone who asked a million questions to someone able to answer those million questions asked by others!

Every day, I would wake up to do the NOSO/DailyPoll/try to get a couple search wins in, go to work, come home and swag until Josh got home from work. Then, we would crawl into bed, I would sit there with my laptop and swag some more, trying to get as many bucks as I could! Josh joked that he was my “mistress” to Swagbucks. I couldn’t help myself! It was fun, addicting, and I felt like I was helping the family out more.

Come February of 2012, I ended up quitting my job. I was planning on working up until the end of March, knowing our daughter would be born in April, but the baby was in so much distress, and I was so sick, I ended up leaving early. With nothing to do during the day while my husband was at work, I would Swag for hours on end. With the amount of Swagbucks I got, turning them into Amazon Gift Cards, I was able to get most of the baby stuff we needed, that we hadn’t already been gifted as presents. Being able to get a stroller for virtually no cost was amazing!

In April 2012, my husband and I had a beautiful baby girl, Madison (or Maddie as we call her). I ended up having an emergency C-section because Maddie had stopped breathing and her heart rate dropped to virtually no heart beat. An hour of surgery to get her out and get me stitched back up was the longest hour of my life. I just remember laying on the operating table with Josh next to me, trying to stay as calm as he could be so he wouldn’t further upset me or put me in hysterics. I ended up having to stay in the hospital for 4 days with Maddie, and my parents and Josh couldn’t help but laugh at me — every morning I was on my iPad with Swagbucks open! When we got home, I was on bed rest for 3 weeks (or couch rest as it were so I could at least watch TV!) and I would have the baby on side of me, the laptop on the other, or the iPad. Nursing and swagging at the same time –I’m a multi tasker!

We found out in August of 2012 that I (again) am expecting, except now I have a bouncy, crawling, almost-walking, gets into everything 8 and a half month old to chase after — but there is always time for SBTV in between!!


What a beautiful story!  And congratulations on your two Swag tots!  Madison is a gorgeous, precious little girl.  We hope Swagbucks continues to be just as helpful and rewarding for you and your family!
