4 Big Changes to Swagbucks Gift CardsHeads up!  I just found out about some changes happening to Swagbucks gift cards, and wanted to share them with you.


1. Starting March 2nd, you will be able to redeem 2,200 Swag Bucks for one $25 Gift Card OF YOUR CHOICE (once per month).  This gift card discount only excludes PayPal and Gas Cards.

Let's do the math... if a $5 Amazon gift card was 450 Swag Bucks, then it would have cost you 2250 SBs.  Therefore, this will save you 50 SBs (a 20% discount), and it applies to more cards (not just Amazon).

2. Swagbucks is introducing a new $3 Amazon Gift Card which will be only 300 SB.

3. Swagbucks will no longer offer $5 Amazon Gift Cards for 450 SB.  They are not going away, but will be priced the same as the other $5 Gift Cards at 500 SB.

4. Currently, you are only able to redeem five $5 Amazon gift cards a month.  However, the good news is that Swagbucks will be removing this limit.

Want to join?
If you are new to Swagbucks, I have a special code for you.  When you sign up for a new account, use my code MYBJS77 to get 70 Swagbucks FREE!

Fabulously Fun Fridays (January 30th Edition)

A new month is almost here.  Is it me, or did January fly by?

During the blizzard this week, I did a little baking.  I have never considered myself a baker.  My personality enjoys the freedom of not measuring ingredients, and just whipping up something that is yummy with items on hand.  I made a delicious chili, but didn't measure the seasonings.  Afterward, I was regretting not keeping track of what I used to make it again.  It was SO good.  Do you cook that way?

Let's have some fun!
Here are my top 3 picks from the last link up!

Fab Fun Friday: Top 3 Picks from Last Week

1. 6 Things That Will Cost More in 2015 {A Debt Free Stress Free Life}
Maureen lists some items that I agree with.  Good to be aware of, so you can keep an eye out for a good deal.

2. Freezer Cooking 101 : Chicken Tortilla Soup {Gypsy Road}
She had me at "tortilla".  I could eat any mexican inspired meal, but this soup looks hearty.  Can't wait to freeze a bunch for those busy family nights. 

3. Free Valentines Day Banner Printable {Little Shack on the Hill}
This banner printable is adorable.  Susan has come up with a cute banner, and provides instructions for printing and assembling. 

Ok!  Now on to the next link up!

RULES (there is only one)
Do you have a post that you would like to share?  Old posts, new posts, giveaways; anything goes as long as it is family friendly.

3 Ways I'm Saving Money in 2015

3 Ways I'm Saving Money in 2015

I have a confession to make.  I have not purchased any coupon inserts for almost a year now.  Did I just hear a gasp from my readers?  You may be thinking how crazy that is, since I run a couponing website!

My responsibilities lately have been time consuming, and frankly, I just needed a break. 

Instead of buying inserts, here are 3 ways I'm saving money this year (and it does not involve buying coupon inserts).

1. I'm using eCoupons.  As you may have noticed, I post frequently about Ibotta, Checkout 51, SavingStar (my absolute fav), and more recently, Jingit.  These programs are fantastic to stack on top of BJ's store coupons and manufacturer coupons.  (Click the links to learn how the programs work!)

2. I'm using printable coupons.  This is the main reason I have not needed to buy coupon inserts.  With all of the great coupons that are free to print, I have done just fine with our budget.  The top 3 coupon outlets I use are Coupons.com, SmartSource and RedPlum.

3. I'm focusing on meal planning.  My goal is to use up what we have in our pantry each week, and focus on making meals based on sale items.  I'm also experimenting with healthier recipes for the family, and will be sharing them with you on the blog. (Yes, even the failures).

Will I ever buy a coupon insert again?  Probably.  For example, if I see a good coupon for peanut butter, I will buy multiple papers to stock up. 

What about you?  Has your couponing changed?  Do you rely on printable coupons and eCoupons more than inserts?  What creative things are you doing to save money?
