Oh ok, thanks!
I think I'll just go with a $25 gift card. I don't think the 100sb will make or break my savings. Occasionally I've picked up Hotels.com gift cards for 20% off, and if it comes down to it I can always get them later on MGCP for 5% back. That trip isn't until April.
Do you know where you are finding it? If I search for it, it just sends me out into the web???? Was it under any specific offer? I wonder if it isn't available to me anymore??? :-(
I searched on the swagbucks through my phone and it came up again. I think it was a discover offer it says 2000 sb
thank you so much for looking for me, but it is not showing up for me, so I guess I'm out of luck on that one! Maybe this means I don't need Schwan's anyway???
Well the bed bath and beyond here does not carry third party gift cards so back to the drawing board. I was hoping to do the $50 and get the 100sb bonus but its not really worth it if its something I don't need. I guess I need to think about it some more. I was really hoping to have one that would help towards Disney somehow.
My surveys don't seem to be working today. I have attempted 4 today, it is not showing. I completed one, also not showing. ugh!
I just made $50 doing a one-hour survey. Highest paying survey I've completed in my 27 months swagbucking.
Yeah, it's really not worth it if you're not spending it anyways. I find it hard to find ones to use towards Disney. I ordered one for Dave and Buster's back in May because we usually go there occasionally, and I'm only using it this weekend! Definitely should have skipped it lol.
ETA: oh my, when I went to print it I realized I ordered TWO of them, one in May and one in February! I've had $50 floating since then from our entertainment budget! D'oh!
That's a bummer. Yeah there's not too much else directly to Disney, but there's some ancillary ones. Like last Swago I bought a Southwest gift card since I knew I was getting my flights for the cruise from them. I see Uber on there now, Rainforest Cafe and Landry's, and Delta.
I had been just buying for places I had to or would shop at normally. Like I needed a new dress for a wedding over the summer so I bought a Boscov's gift card and got one there. Same for Lowe's, Red Lobster, Spa Week, and I think a couple other restaurants that we had plans at anyway (between hubby and I). I figured it's money already allocated, may as well get some Disney money for it.
The middle Swago square is the last one I need to get filled. I'm thinking of getting a gift card for hotels.com since we are going to a wedding at the end of the month and will need a hotel. Has anyone ever used a giftcard with that website? How does that work? I usually book a hotel room with booking.com, so I'm not familiar with their check out process.
Also, I see Swagbucks does 8% cash back when you use them.......do you get 8% of the full cost of the room even if you use a gift card???
Yup! We got about 3000 sb last month from two hotel bookings. One was paid entirely by credit card, the other only $5 on the card and the rest was gift cards.
Whenever an unexpected expense comes up on one of those stores that I can wait a day for, I buy a gift card. And if I can wait longer, I then order it online with the gift card through the sb portal or another portal depending on which is highest.
I went to buy the $25 gift card on DH's account, and it listed a Lob verification bonus (?) for 100sb, so I still got an extra 100sb lol. I'm not sure what that was for, has anyone seen that?
Sounds like the bonus you get after verifying the giftcard account; we got PINs in the mail and after we entered the PIN to verify, the next order got a 100sb bonus. Don't remember what it was called tho, just something with 'verification' in the description. So could be something like that.
I think that's it! I really thought I had bought more gift cards through his account to get the 10% referral on my account, but looking in the history I only see one purchase.
So I have my MGCP points, it triggered the square on the SWAGO board, but my spins haven't shown up. Anyone else have this problem?
I used mygiftcardplus or whatever Swagbucks calls it to buy Landry's gift cards for meals at Animal Kingdom (both the Rainforest Cafe and our favorite, Yak and Yeti) and Disney Springs (Trex and Rainforest Cafe). I also booked our room through hotels.com and we flew on Southwest. Both hotels.com and Southwest gift cards are available.
uugh the only square i need for my swago is the redeem a swag code from the swag button. I did redeem two but it didn't count.
Any swag codes out there??
Bravo! We just got back from an 8 day trip to WDW, all paid with earnings from Swagbucks and other earning sites/apps. We actually came home with money on our Disney gift card ($176), Landry's gift card ($75), Ghiradelli ($25), Basin ($9), and hotels.com ($37). You gotta get creative sometimes on how you redeem rewards, but I think that's part of the fun.
Where did you purchase Basin cards?
