I use Viggle. Was saving for a Lowe's card but it disappeared.
Also I am just a few hundred points away from a $50 Target GC from Shopkick. Yay! :D I'm going to buy a $50 Disney GC with the Target GC.


What is plink?

After a frustrating overwhelming day for my 3 yr old DD, we're in the bathroom right after Wishes, listening to the announcement of "your wishes come true" and DD says "Momma, my wish came true!" "Really? What was your wish?" "To meet Cinderella!"

I have done Viggle since last summer. Last summer I only cashed in for the Barnes and Noble not realizing you could only use two on an order so I had to do several different orders. This year I am doing it for the Best Buy gift cards are so far I have $100.00. At the end of the year I am going to take what I have and apply it to the purchase of a larger tv for our condo.

I signed up with shopkicks right away a long time ago and have never done well there. I forget about it plus the store that I go in all the time that has points never seems to "register". Plus they changed the format of the AP and I can't seem to get where I want to be...I need to check it out further and get started with it again because anything to make Christmas/and or the things I want to buy cheaper is good.

I use:
Shopkick (turn into target cards, which I turn into disney gift cards)
Checkpoints - easy to get amazon gift cards
Ebates - I order things for work all the time from staples and get 2% back!
Swagbucks - easy to get amazon cards too
Viggle - just started and hey if you are watching tv, might as well!

Going to check out wagg right now...........

Last year, from February on, I used Viggle and Wikets. I made about $1,000 between those two apps alone. I was nursing my baby and spent a lot of time on the couch anyway, so it worked out. However, both have lost their luster and neither are as good as they once were. Plus, said baby is now on the move, so my app time is limited.

I also have done decently with Wrapp (free gift cards to Sephora, H&M, etc.) and Snap Appy from Old Navy (free $5, multiple times).

I always say you should buy the iPad and then pay for it with apps. Really you come out ahead with very little work. Not to mention all of the free coupons and deals you can download and bring with you on your device...

I mostly get points with 7/11 because of gas and friend referral link. With 7/11 it is 100 points if you spend $10 or more and 250 if you spend $25 or more. Other offers vary. The gift cards I have looked into average about 100 points per $1.

I can't think of all their places but I know they have - 7/11, Gap, Old Navy, Arby's, Taco Bell, Red Robin, Sears, Kmart, and several others.

This only works for IN STORE purchases not online. I like it because all I have to do is swipe my card and spend the minimum (never a problem with gas ).. don't have to check in or scan products and such.

Check it out!

How long does it take to get your Swagbucks these days? I haven't redeemed any since last year, but completed two offers two weeks ago and still nothing in my account history

LOVE ebates!

The only thing that comes up when I search wrapp in my apps is Wrapp it and that is not the same thing. What am I doing wrong?

Plink sounds good. Unfortunately those stores arent ones I frequent.

Wanted to say if you are using swagbucks you should subscribe to sbcodez.com
They send you an email every time there is a new swagbucks code on twitter, fb, blog, etc. Makes it so much easier to get points.
