Overdue Update (long) and swagbucks question

February 11th, 2013 at 06:09 pm

I have been keeping up pretty well with my 2013 financial goals so far. I am averaging 3-4 NSD's a week. I continue to pay an extra $1400 a month toward my mortgage principle which now stands at $96,352.74. And I am steadily staying below my target of spending $50 a week for groceries. Now that football Sunday parties are over it's been pretty easy.

Some great news on the job front! I work at a community college that has multiple campuses. I have always worked at the campus located the farthest from my home, typically a 45-60 minute drive each way, and I had to buy an ez-pass because I had to commute through a tunnel everyday. I had put in for a transfer to the closest campus to home (10 minutes away) a long time ago, and it was finally approved! My gas usage will easily be cut in half (maybe more),and I won't need the tunnel pass anymore, and I get to sleep in an extra 30 minutes every morning! Sweet!

I joined swagbucks on 12/31/12 and as of today I have 7231 points. I am waiting to get to 10,000 to purchase a $100 e-gift card to either CVS or Walmart. I plan to use this to stock up on all my personal care products. Has anyone else used one of the e-gift cards from swagbucks? I am wondering if there are any glitches with these? Either printing them out or trouble using them in the stores mentioned?

    I've never had an issue redeeming the swagbucks cards.

    Sounds like life is going great. Wonderful news on the transfer. I would welcome any suggestions as to accumulating that many Swagbucks. I only yield about 450 a month.

    Carolina Girl: I have just been really lucky with surveys. I was able to meet the daily goals every day in January and that yielded quite a lot of bonus points. It's been a bit slower in February so far.

    I used a $5 walmart e-gift card at the store with no problems at all.

    I've used e-gift cards for cvs that I got through other channels (not SB) and never had a problem.
