Debbi's Frugal Forum July 22, 2012

The internet can be a resourceful tool to getting freebies, earning gift cards or making money. I try not to promote buying items but when you do need to have something make sure you use the proper tools to get the best deal. Using ebates, swagbucks, my points or shop at home while purchasing products can actually make you money.  Join my favorite site ebates where you could receive up to 25% cash back on your participating store purchases. It doesn’t cost you anything to join but every quarter they will send you a check of your total cash back rewards.

Swagbucks takes you to another level of earning rewards like store gift cards by doing simply tasks for example searching the web, shopping at you favorite store, filling out surveys, recycling old phones and much more. Many of my friends are saving up their rewards for gift cards to purchase their holiday presents.

ShopatHome is a site that gives you cash back for your online purchases at participating sites, plus you also are alerted to coupons for additional savings. Check out ShopatHome Daily Deals where with the cash back you can get the product free just pay shipping.

Mypoints has different ways to earn points to redeem toward cash, gift cards or even travel miles. Just sign up make purchases online, fill out surveys, play games, read emails, book travel or search the web to add points to your account.

Two other social media sites to sign up for is and When you sign up all you have to do is fill out some surveys and they will start sending you great freebies in the mail. All they ask of you is to try the freebies then report back on what you thought about them. It takes a little time but you will be extremely excited to go to your mailbox and receive your goodies. I highly recommend that you set up a freebie email account at yahoo, hotmail or google to use for all these sites.
