I love getting things for less than retail price

Have you heard about Swagbucks? And about how you can search the internet and earn these “swagbucks” and use them to buy things?

I’ve been using the site for a few months now, with the hopes of saving up enough points to buy Christmas presents for the family or something equally exciting.

They say the best way to use Swagbucks is to redeem them every few weeks for a $5 Amazon gift card. You can then add those gift cards to your account and use them for whatever you need.

I’ve been saving up those credits and ended up with about $40 worth on Amazon. The other day when Husband and I were shopping for packing and vacation accessories, I realized we could get a better deal on these packing cubes on Amazon than in a brick and mortar store…

Ebags from Amazon

With the credit and Amazon’s free shipping, they ended up being $11 – for TWO sets! I got the green ones and Husband chose his in silver. Now we’ll be all organized for gallivanting across various hotels in Europe. Yay!

Amazon doesn’t know that I exist. Well, they do, because I buy things from them, but they didn’t endorse this review. Neither did EBags. Swagbucks, however, will give me some extra “swagbucks” if you click that little referral button on the my sidebar. But I’m the wife of a poor law student, so maybe that’s ok? :)


  1. This is exactly why I love all my fellow bloggers... I learn so much! I had no ideas swagbucks existed!

  2. I was wondering what swagbucks was. Hmmm maybe I will have to look into this further.

  3. Those are super cute!!! Want!!!

    You need to steal your hubs' lexis/westlaw points... those work on amazon too :)
