I did it for the t-shirt

I’ve heard that line a time or two in college from James as he was explaining why he signed up for another credit card!  I am PROUDLY saying that line today, though all in jest, because I definitely did NOT “do it for the t-shirt”, but rather for the $500 Visa gift card that came with the Michael Jackson t-shirt (which is coming to a white elephant party near you…)

So….why did I receive a $500 gift card in the mail today???  I’m so glad you asked!

The quick version is:

I have a friend from Houston, named Misty, who introduced me to doing online offers.  She was receiving all these gift cards and checks and I was starting to get intrigued.

Misty pointed me to Carrie from Money Saving Methods.

I read all the instructions and signed up for my 8 ‘online offers’ in late August.  I spent $20 total to get my $500 gift card.  I should be receiving a $500 Home Depot card (I spent $45) and a $500 check (I spent $55) in the coming weeks!  (I will post when I get them!)  I am about to start a $500 gift card to American Airlines this week too!

If you are interested, e-mail me or comment and I’ll be happy to help you get started!  Also, for all you Austin folks, I will be sending an e-mail to those interested for a ‘get trained’ class at my house!  😉

**It’s been a good week for free stuff for me. I got a $10 Amazon gift card with my Swagbucks. Swagbucks is like Google, just search what you normally search, and earn ‘swag bucks’ sometimes. I have earned $20 of Amazon gift cards since March just by searching on the internet. I make Swagbucks my home page so I always remember to use it!
Search & Win

And then I got a $20 gift card to Build-A-Bear (my choice) from my Pampers gifts to grow points! Woo-hoo!
