Make Your Online Shopping Time More Rewarding

Make Your Online Shopping Time More RewardingHow would you like to be paid for the things that you are going to be doing online anyway? What if you could get paid to do nothing more than make specific searches or play games? These are things that you probably do everyday already, using your computer, your phone or a tablet, so you might as well benefit from them.

When you use Swag Bucks, you get paid in a global currency that can be used online. After you accumulate enough Swag Bucks, you can use them on online shopping sites to purchase things that you also needed to get anyway. For example, you might be able to buy things like new shoes or software programs. These are not frivolous purchases since you know that you need them, but getting them with your Swag Bucks means that you do not have to spend any actual money. In a way, you are getting these items for free.

This is a great deal since it can help you stay within your budget and get things that you otherwise may not have been able to afford. On top of this, you can even get Swag Bucks for your online shopping purchases. The Internet has revolutionized the way that people shop in recent years. You can now buy things for incredibly competitive prices since there are so many different vendors. You can have those items shipped to your door so that, as long as you have a few days to wait, you never have to go through the hassle of going out and picking them up.

Now, with Swag Bucks, you can actually get paid to spend your money. After a certain point, you can turn your shopping itself into free items that you buy with this online currency. The best part about this whole system is that it is a cycle. You can get Swag Bucks for being online, and then you can spend them online, getting real, tangible goods in return. As a result, you will spend more time on the Internet, which can easily be translated into more Swag Bucks, leading you to more purchases. The whole system is set up in your favor.

There are many different kinds of online shopping rewards our there, but none of them give you the flexibility that Swag Bucks can provide. If you are given airline miles, for example, you have to use them on tickets. With this online currency, you get to choose what you buy. You get a say in how your rewards are used. You are no longer at the mercy of the company offering the rewards. This whole system is easy to use, adding another great element to online shopping.

Save On Your Holiday Shopping With Plastic Jungle

At Plastic Jungle you can buy gift cards for hundreds of different merchants at a discount and I really love to use their discounted gift cards to save as much as possible on my holiday shopping.  You can save up to 35% off the face value of gift cards you buy from Plastic Jungle and you always get free shipping, no fees and no expiration dates. 

Buying gift cards from Plastic Jungle for holiday gifts is one way to save on your holiday budget, but you could also shop strategically with the gift cards to save even more!  For example, Best Buy always has lots of hot deals available for Black Friday shoppers, well you could save 5% more right off the top if you use a Best Buy gift card to pay for your bargains.  I’m a huge fan of J.C. Penney because they send me lots of great coupons and they have terrific sales, plus I can use a J.C. Penney gift card from Plastic Jungle to get an additional 16% off my purchases!

Another great way to save on your holiday shopping is to swap or sell any unused gift cards you might have to Plastic Jungle.  If you’ve received a gift card for a restaurant you don’t like, or if you have a partial balance left on a gift card, you can head over to Plastic Jungle and turn it in for up to 92% of its value and get paid with an Amazon gift card, through PayPal or you can opt to receive a check.  This is a hassle free way to make some holiday cash, and they even pay for the postage!

Free $20 Bonus Card wyb $100 in Outback Gift Cards

I absolutely love both giving and receiving gift cards – they’re so versatile that you really can’t go wrong with them as a gift, no matter the occasion.  That’s just another reason that I really dig this time of year, because all of the merchants and restaurants start to compete with one another to get a part of your gift budget by giving away freebies like this one.  Get a free $20 bonus gift card when you buy $100 worth of Outback Steakhouse gift cards.  It’s even super fast and easy to order the gift cards online with lots of different styles to choose from, including a “design your own” version where you can add your own images and text.

 

$50 Plastic Jungle Giveaway – Pick Your Gift Card!

UPDATE:  This giveaway is over!

PlasticJungle.com is this really cool place where you can go to sell or exchange any unwanted gift cards that you might have, plus you can buy gift cards for your favorite stores or restaurants at less than their face value.  Check out some of the deals you can get on gift cards:

These are just a few of my favorites – there are tons more to choose from!  The best part about getting gift cards for cheaper from PlasticJungle.com though is that you can also stack them with other offers to save even more.  For example, JC Penney is one of my favorite department stores because they have great sales and they often put out coupons for even greater savings.  Right now I’m shopping for school uniforms for the kids (required in our county) and they have a great selection at JC Penney’s so a good savings strategy is to buy a $25 JC Penney gift card from PlasticJungle.com for only $21, then use it with one of the store’s awesome $10/$25 coupons.  That way you only pay $11 for $25 worth of uniforms!  SCORE!

If you need shoes for back to school then you can save a whopping 20% off a Foot Locker gift card for a great deal on all the hottest brands.  Buy a $50 Foot Locker gift card from PlasticJungle.com for only $40, then use it with a 15% off coupon to get a $60 pair of shoes, or two $30 pairs of shoes, for only $41 ($60 – 15% = $51 use gift card plus $1 and tax).
