Don’t be the only one missing out on this….

MySurvey Free Product TestDo survey sites really work?… There are a few reasons why I LOVE survey sites. I am on an incredibly tight budget – and the free gift cards, cash, and rewards that I earn from filling out quick surveys make a BIG difference in our life. These rewards help me do pretty much all of my Christmas shopping, which is amazing.

I also love the chance to do in-home product testing! So cool. Most of these sites will send you out FREE Full Size products, and you try them out with your family, then give your opinions. Then, they PAY you for sharing your thoughts about the FREE stuff they sent you. How can you not love that?

Don’t Miss Out!

Don’t be the only one missing out on all of this good stuff! As you can see from the pic’s here, these companies really are legit, and you really do get free stuff. Every site listed on this page is one that I use myself, and have gotten rewards from.

You can see that my recent tests have included a new natural teething gel for baby, Bounty Paper Towels, Cover Girl Mascara, Brand Name Dog Foods, and Salad Dressing. I’ve also done several diaper tests in the past month. I’m super excited for the new line of Pantene products that are coming soon too….. And I DO NOT want you guys to miss out on stuff like this!

Tips Coming Soon….

I’ll be sharing a post in a few days about how to get the most out of these types of sites when you don’t have a lot of time – so stay tuned for my best tips.

Until Then…

Check out this huge list of my trusted survey sites, and sign up for as many as you can. The more you sign up with, the more chances you’ll get for free stuff. You only do the surveys you have time for- just delete ’em if you’re busy! All of these sites are ones that I have used, earned at least one reward from, and that I can recommend confidently to you. There are a few of them that are referral links, and I earn a few cents when you’re join me – you’ll get links like that to share with your friends too, once you sign up. It’s not big bucks, but it does add to your earnings when you share your favorites with others, and help them learn how to use them too!

Free Products:

  • MySurvey – Take Surveys, Get FREE Products to try out, and Earn amazing Rewards!! {See the Cover Girl Mascara I got in the pic? Super cool.}

  • SwagBucks – the easiest way to earn free stuff on the web! Redeem for my favorite, Amazon gift cards, or even PayPal cash!
  • Ipsos I-Say Young Adults Survey – Only for young adults, which means ages 18-30. That means I am now an “old” adult, since I’m over 30. No fair.

There is no “catch”, it’s easy to do, and you will love the rewards.

Frugal Tips: Slay the energy vampires in your home!

Digitwirl NEW Episode

This is the problem-

Oh sure, your electric toothbrush, toaster and TV look innocent enough, but do you realize they’re robbing you blind? It’s true! In fact all your electronics are pulling power even when they’re not on. Which means you’re paying for a lot of electricity unnecessarily.

Don’t worry! I’ve Got Your Solution-

We found the perfect solutions. First the Belkin Conserve Socket which shuts off the electricity when you’re done toasting your toast, brewing your coffee or charging your phone. Second, the Belkin Conserve Smart AV, a power strip so smart it stops your TV, stereo and gaming system from drawing energy when you’re not using them, but keeps your DVR and cable box on so you won’t miss any of your favorite shows. Whatwill those Kardashians do this week?

Watch this week’s Twirl and watch Carley destroy all the energy sucking vampires around her house, no wooden stake required….

Good For Your Wallet, Good for The Earth!

What great ideas, right? I have been on a mission to cut back all of our expenses this past year – since, as a blogger, I’m not exactly rich yet. I annoy the family on a daily basis, reminding them to turn off the lights when they leave a room, turn off the TV, etc, close the windows when I have the heat running – what’s wrong with you guys!! Whoops, slipped into mommy-mode there for a minute… :)

I am totally in love with these new little gadgets, and am excited to see what kind of difference they’ll start making in my monthly energy bill. And – if you’re using SwagBucks, and earning free Amazon Gift Certificates like I am, you can get these FREE! Check ’em out on Amazon:

And if you’re still unsure, read the reviews on Amazon — one happy customer called the controls on the outlet “idiot-proof”, which is pretty important for me when buying tech stuff, lol.

What do you think? Are you lovin’ this idea too?

Digitwirl is the weekly web show that offers simple solutions to modern day problems. In 3 minutes, Digitwirl brings busy women the very best time, money, and sanity-saving technology, and then teaches them how to use it, step-by-step. Digitwirl was created by technology lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, who uses lots of technology to manage her busy life as mom of two and entrepreneur.

Is Swagbucks a Scam?

I get asked all of the time, “Is Swagbucks a Scam?” To which I’ll answer- “No WAY!!!” I have used Swagbucks for about 2 years, and it is one of THE VERY BEST ways to earn free rewards online. Seriously.

To see some proof, check this out:

«Previous Page 1 of 96 Next»

These are the Swagbucks that I’ve earned!

Notice how it says on the bottom, “Page 1 of 96”?? Yep, that’s how many points I’ve earned. Every 450 points earns me another FREE $5 Amazon gift card!! I earn $100’s in cards each year, which is an amazing help for my family, and is what I use to buy diapers for the baby- FREE. Awesome, right? And going into the holidays, it’s a great way to do your shopping for free. {Get 15 more ways to shop online for free here too.}

How do you earn points?

  • Add their toolbar. This is super easy, I promise. I’m not a skilled technology person, but this was simple to do. Then, use the toolbar for your regular searches, and you randomly get points added to your account. Seriously, what could be easier?
  • To boost your points, you can do more activities: The surveys can earn you 50-150 points each, which can add up SUPER fast!! There are tons of other ways to earn- daily polls, games, offers, etc.
  • Refer your friends. You can connect your Swagbucks to your Facebook account, and it will automatically share on your wall when you get new points, so that you’re friends want to check it out too! Then, when they earn points, so do you!! {I only have 4 referrals, but even that small amount gives me a big boost!}
  • Watch for SwagCodes while searching, or that other bloggers post. Then enter them in your account for MORE bonus points!!
  • Tons more ways to earn too: Coupons, Shopping, Daily Deals, Games, Videos, and loads more!

Tons of Rewards Available:

There are literally thousands of different rewards to choose from: gift cards, donations, products, sweepstakes entries, and more.

 I redeem almost all of my points for Gift Cards, since that’s where I do all of my baby shopping. Every time you get a new gift card, you can add the code to your Amazon account, and let them add up until you’re ready to use ’em. Love it. Plus, since some of my favorite survey sites reward with Amazon gift cards too, I can get most of what I buy there for free each month.

Other great rewards available:

  • Gift Cards from sites like Cookies Kids, Gourmet Gift Baskets, EcoMom, Frecklebox, and
  • You can use small amounts of points to make donations to charities like Lupus Foundation of America.
  • You can get FREE products, from games and toys to magazines and home decor.
  • Your points can be used to enter Swagstakes giveaways too! You use the points as entries, and there are so many giveaways to win!

Swagbucks ROCKS my SOCKS!

I recommend this site to everyone, and it’s hard to understand why you wouldn’t want to use it! Even if all you do is add the toolbar, you’ll earn points with NO effort at all. It’ll take you longer to earn rewards, but heck, they’ll be free when you do earn ’em, so why not??

If you’re using Swagbucks too, leave a comment to tell me your best tip, or favorite feature of the site!!
