How Swagbucks Works For Me – kmw7

Posted by on Wed, March 26th, 2014 at 3:30 pm

Giving back, helping out others and those in need is what Swagbucks is all about.  Today we’d like to introduce you to kmw7, from Uniontown, OH.  read how she used the Swag Bucks she earned to make her parents’ anniversary extra special!

My husband and I are under a pretty tight budget, like most people. But, we still love to/want to do nice things for our friends and family. I usually cash in my Swagbucks for money through PayPal and decided mid-2012 that I was going to start saving exclusively for my parents 40th wedding anniversary party that was in March 2013. My parents are so wonderful and are always giving to my brothers and I.

I wanted to do something very special for them. I ended up renting out a banquet room at a nice Italian restaurant and having the party there with about 40 family members and close friends of my parents. They were SO happy and appreciative and it was ALL paid for through Swag Bucks that I had saved up for around 8-9 months.

I took a brief break from Swagbucks because my husband and I had our first child, who is now almost 7 months old. Now my goal is to save for his 1st birthday party so we can have a nice party with all our family and friends and not have to worry about how we will stick to our budget and pay for the party.

Thank you so much for helping us do these special things!

Thank you for sharing this great story with us, kmw7!  It’s so great to hear that you were able to throw your parents a wonderful 40th anniversary party!  And then look at the face your little guy  - adorable!

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!
