How Swagbucks Works For Me – tiredone905

It’s our final testimonial of March.  We’ve met some incredible people in the first 3 months of 2014!  We can’t wait to see who else we get to meet the rest of the year!  Today, say hello to tiredone905, from Covina, CA.  See how she;’s using Swagbucks to get her husband a great 1 year Anniversary present!

I registered for Swagbucks a couple of years ago, but never followed through. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I realized it’s actually a pretty awesome site that helps me when my budget’s really tight. My husband and I got married six months ago. All of our income goes toward rent, car payments, student loans, etc. Nothing fun for us, we never splurge on ourselves. In fact our budget gets so tight that we often don’t purchase gifts for each other for birthdays, holidays, or anniversaries.

Well, I’m hoping to change that with Swagbucks, and I’m well on my way. My husband mentioned that he’d wanted an XBox, but said he wouldn’t get it because “it’s just too much and we have other bills to worry about.” I’ve been using Swagbucks every day to put toward Amazon gift cards which, when combined with my rewards from my Amazon credit card, I will use to surprise him with an XBox on our 1 year wedding anniversary in September 2014. I’m slowly chipping away at that goal, and there’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be able to accomplish it.

I can’t wait to see his face when he opens his gift! It definitely couldn’t have been done without “swagging!”

This is a great story!  Thank you for sharing it with us. tiredone905!  Looks like your husband is getting a great surprise (unless of course he’s reading this right now).
