Rewarding Moments: Shelly

Shelly (Swag Name: ShellyHill) is from Harrisburg, PA and joined Swagbucks in February 2011. Shelly found out about us years ago after wanting to add an additional stream of income to her blog: She often recommends earning opportunities to her readers and has recruited both her mom and daughter as referrals! Her
favorite way to earn SB is by taking surveys, participating in discussion panels and trying out new products.

Recently, Shelly witnessed a car getting rid of a cat on her street. It took her two days to coax the scared cat out of a bush but she prevailed! Due to chronic health issues, Shelly’s doctor requested that they do a full vet check on the cat to make sure it was healthy enough to live with Shelly and would not affect her health. We all know how expensive vet bills can be and that’s where Swagbucks comes in!

For the past 4 years I’ve been dumping 90% of all of my Swagbucks earnings into a Paypal account and calling it our rainy day emergency fund. After making the decision to rescue and adopt the cat we used the money for the vet bills and buying all of the new kitty supplies that we needed. After $900 I’m happy to report that he’s now our beloved new cat! We named him Tucker Carlson and just adore him! He’s the most loving pet that I’ve ever met! Thank you Swagbucks…without you this wouldn’t of been possible! If I wouldn’t have stashed away my earnings into a rainy day fund we would of NEVER been able to pay all of those vet bills and buy all of the supplies that we needed. Our family is furrrrever grateful to you!

Here is a picture of Tucker!

We have issued 1000 SB to your account, Shelly. We are so happy that you found a fur-ever friend in Tucker and that you were able to cover his vet bill with the help of your SB earnings!
