Rewarding Moments: Carmen

Carmen (Swag Name: cruelas) is from Modesto, Ca and has been a Swagbucks member since January 2010 after she got really into couponing and saw us mentioned on one of her favorite blogs: Money Saving Mom. She was on the search for more ways to save money and stumbled on Swagbucks. Her favorite thing about Swagbucks are Search wins and our Daily Polls. Also, since she is an avid “couponer”, she loves seeing the SB from her coupon redemption. 

Melinda wanted to surprise her nephew with a very special gift for his birthday: his first Build-A-Bear stuffed animal as well as his first Build-A-Bear experience. She knew it could all be possible just by earning on Swagbucks!

I was a few hundred Swagbucks short though, and his birthday was getting closer, so I checked my Swagbucks INBOX. There was an offer for two Highlights Magazine puzzle books with no obligation–my favorite–so, even though I had to pay for shipping, I earned enough Swagbucks to pay myself back, get the gift card, AND add some puzzle books to Lucas’s gift!
I was able to surprise my nephew by picking him up at school on his birthday and he was so excited when I told him we were going to Build-A-Bear (he was so cute–right away, he asked if we could get a bear for his baby sister too). When we got there, he browsed for a few seconds, then his eyes locked on his favorite thing right now: Pikachu! He was so happy and it was perfect, and since my budget is tight, I wouldn’t have been able to give this kind of gift if it weren’t for Swagbucks. Thanks so much and keep up the good work.


Look at that smile on Lucas’s face!
