Get Your Local Entertainment Coupon Book at Swagbucks

I'm going to tell you honestly, I ignore more than half the emails I get in my Swagbucks inbox. I truly don't want to optin to buy magazines or other specials. But today a great deal came in: the Entertainment Coupon Book!!

I have always seen these but never bought them.  As a matter of fact I watch Celebrity Apprentice and it was just recently featured on there.  But I still didn't feel compelled to buy one?  Why?  I forget to use the coupons.  And they are some great savings!

Don't know what the Entertainment Coupon books are.  In short they are coupon books for your region.  Things like groceries, movies, restaurants, and many more activities have discounts in the wonderful book.  Just click here to see more: BUT before you do, join Swagbucks first.

Ok, back to my emails from SB. 

In my Swagbucks inbox today was 275 free Swagbucks to buy the Entertainment book.  

Mobil savings with Entertainment Book
I go back: I normally don't buy this book. 

  1. I forget the coupons---> many are on my iPhone app now. They are mobile! (The above coupon is for Payless Shoes)
  2. The book is expensive at $35---> it is now $15! And free shipping.
  3. And now I get 275 points in SB!
I bought it.

Swagbucks Searches are Generous with the Buck Winnings

Swagbucks searches have been very generous lately.  I was on a Swagbucks hiatus for a while and I just came back this week.

Every time I have done the first search of my day I have won Swag Bucks!  So cool!  Usually I need to search 3 times but lately they have been very generous.

Keep it up Swagbucks! THX!

Swagbucks and Nature Conservancy

Do you support non profits?  I do.  Sometimes I make a monthly on going donation and sometimes a simple one time donation.

Why am I telling you this? 

Well, Swagbucks has joined with Nature Conservancy.  What a wonderful partnership.

You donate a minimum of one time $50 to Nature Conservancy and get 1350 Swagbucks Points.

That is awesome!  You get to donate to a very reputable organization that helps wildlife.  Get a tax write off AND points. 

While you are at Swagbucks simply click:

Earn --> Special Offers --> New

Scroll down to find "Nature Conservancy".

Happy Swagging.

Swagbucks: Is It Worth It?

I've been doing the math.

I earn about 10 Swagbuck points per day.  That is 300 per month, minimum.

At this rate, I can achieve my goal of obtaining the Paypal cash of $25 in about 11 months.

My first inclination is to quit Swagbucks.  BUT then  I wonder.  It takes me less than a minute to earn those 10 points.  I do the daily poll for 1 point and a simple search which usually yields 8-11 points.

The math: 

1 min/day

30 min/month

11 months to earn $25. 

11 months x 30 min/month = 330 min for $25

330 min = 5.5 hours

$25 / 5.5 hrs = $4.55/hr

Less than minimum wage for the United States.

Is this worth it? (Stick with me here.)

Yes and no.  

When I do the math, no.  Really, who wants to earn $4.55 / hr? 

Actually, many Internet marketers and online entrepreneurs make less than that for the first 2 years. 

So, in hindsight.  One minute a day to earn what I wouldn't otherwise is a fair trade.  And I can say, Swagbucks is pretty generous with their points compared to what I have attempted in the past.  And it is fun and easy.

My numbers are based on the minimum points.  I do usually earn more.  AND if I get people under me, which I do, the potential to earn more rises.

What do you think?

Would you like to join Swagbucks too?  Do you have 1 minute a day to spare?
