Nice surprise in the mail today

I went to check the mail today and was very happy to see a piece of mail from Angus Reid.  I joined the Angus Reid Forum in January 2011 and completed a total of 28 surveys where I earned "Survey Dollars".  Back in December, I finally accumulated $50 Survey Dollars and was able to redeem them.  So today in the mail, I received my $50 cheque!  I know it sounds like a lot of surveys for $50, but the way I see it, the surveys are fairly simple and quick and it's $50 more dollars than I had yesterday.

Also, I am close to redeeming $10 in Amazon.ca gift cards from Swagbucks.  That will bring my total Swagbuck redemptions to $90 in Amazon.ca gift cards.  Again, it takes awhile to earn the Swagbucks and I think it takes me approx 3 weeks to accumulate enough Swagbucks to redeem a $5 Amazon.ca gift card.  The Swagbucks I earn are usually through web searches, so it's something that I have to do anyway.  Then I answer the Daily Poll and occasionally complete a survey.  My goal this year is to save all Amazon.ca gift cards that I redeem and use that towards Christmas gifts.

Love finding other ways, and to me simple ways to earn a little extra $$.


  1. I am doing swagbucks now. I have 682 points so far and am really hoping that I will be able to get it up there so I can use it for shopping next year.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I am reading yours now and really enjoy it

  2. Awesome!! :) That's a nice cheque in the mail! Great idea to save Amazon gift cards towards Xmas!
