How Swagbucks Works For Me – BMR6174

Posted by on Fri, January 31st, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Happy Friday!  For today’s testimonial we’d like everyone to say hi to BMR6174, from Howes Cave, NY.  After being recently diagnosed with an illness, she has used Swagbucks to help offset medical expenses.  Read more below!

I wanted to write to, first, say thank you and, second, let you know how Swagbucks works for me.  I was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  It is very daunting at the moment as the diagnosis is only very recent for me.  I have a 4-year old son and my worst fear is that the disease will progress and make it hard for me to give him the life he deserves.

I’ve done a lot of research on the disease and have found many dietary supplements that are said to help keep the disease in check.  It’s an expensive disease with specialist visits, MRIs and the drug used to treat it (that alone costs me out of pocket $500 a quarter!).  So I am very grateful to use my Swag Bucks for Amazon gift cards for vitamins, flaxseed, chia seeds, coconut oil, herbal supplements…all reported to have great benefits!  This way I never feel guilty about buying things for the love of my life…my 4 year old.  I’d give him the world if I could.  Attached is a picture of Gavin clowning around!

Thank you so very much for sharing your story with us, BMR6174!  I wish I could grow a mustache as fine as Gavin’s!  We’re glad you’ve been able to use Swagbucks to your benefit.  Here’s 500 more SBs for you!

If you would like to share your story please send it to contests@swagbucks.com (include your swag name and a photo!).  If your story is published you will be awarded 500 Swag Bucks!
