I participate in several affiliate/reward programs and I just got two rewards in the mail this week! One of them is a $10 Starbucks gift card that I got from Pampers.com. Pampers gives you codes inside all their products and each code is worth so many points depending on what product it is. You enter in the codes on their site and get your points. They have different prizes worth different amounts. In the past I have cashed in my points for a movie ticket and Starbucks gift cards. This time I picked another Starbucks gift card because I happen to be going there once a week for Bible Study. If you go through as many diapers as I do then this program is definitely worth signing up for.
My other prize is a $5 gift card from Chevron. I read about this Chevron Techron Trivia Game on someone's blog. I just had to go to the site and play the game. I played it a couple of days in a row. I didn't know I had won so this was a great surprise! So don't knock the things you see on the internet...sometimes they really do pay you! I mean that is 3 gallons of gas! Woohoo! I think they were giving away up to $500...too bad I didn't win that!
I also belong to a site called Mypoints.com and I have already received $30.00 worth of gift cards through them. That is since September of 2008! I almost have enough points to get $25 more. I have picked Starbucks, Olive Garden and Barnes and Noble in the past. I think this time I am going to get one for Fridays. If you want to get an invite for this affiliate site please leave a comment with your email address and I will send you an invite. I get points if you sign up using the invite email! Basically if you do any shopping online or print out coupons from online sites then this would be a great site for you!
I just wanted to share some of the things I do to get a little back.
I am a stay at home Mom raising 3 boys with my husband of 12 years. My oldest son is 6, the middle is 6 and the baby is 3. They keep me busy and I love it! We moved from Texas to Virginia in July of 2010, where my hubby has taken a job as an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech. I love reading, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, baking, playing with my kids, listening to music and learning about my Lord and Savior. I welcome any comments as long, as they are respectful.
I read a total of 76 books in 2010 and my goal for 2011 will be 85.
11/25/11UPDATE--I didn't put into consideration that last year I added books of the bible to my list and this year I am not...I didn't keep last year's list but I am pretty sure that at least half of the 76 were just books as opposed to the Bible. So I think a new goal of mine will be to have read 50 books. I only have a month left...
