A little over a year ago, I signed up for Swagbucks to earn gift cards. It takes me a long time to build them up (I go at a snail's pace), but it's very rewarding when you finally reach your goal! My first purchase (I redeemed my Swagbucks for Paypal cash) was a reactive bowling ball...I have a "regular" bowling ball, but after ten years of throwing a straight ball, it was time to learn how to throw a hook! The Swagbucks didn't cover the entire cost of the ball, but it sure helped out.
So after the bowling ball purchase, I started over again accumulating
SB. I thought this time I would apply it toward soap supplies, because
it would sure help out with the shipping cost. I was out of lye, so
this is what I applied the Swagbucks to...and I redeemed them for $25
Paypal cash again. I ordered the lye from Essential Depot...and at the
time, it was on sale for $1.99/2 lb.
4 x $1.99= $ 7.96 (for 8lbs.)
+ $19.71 shipping
- $25.00 Swagbucks/Paypal gift card
$ 2.67 out of pocket
I got 8 lbs. of lye for $2.67...that's .67 per bottle!
Shipping is always higher than my order too, whenever I order from ED,
so it's nice to apply Swagbucks toward the shipping cost....doesn't
"hurt" so much! Do you participate in Swagbucks? What have you used them for?
By the way, I am not being compensated by anyone for writing this post. I just wanted to share my savings experience! There is a referral button though, at the top right of my blog...if you're thinking of trying it out, I'd appreciate it! :)
