2010 "Earnings" and savings
Swagbucks: $290.00 in Amazon gift cards
$15.00 in PayPal money
Irazoo: $50.00 in Amazon gift cards (didn't start this one until June)
Listia: $65 in Wal-Mart Gift Cards and about $75 worth of merchandise: books, DVD's, clothes, toys, coupons.
The main thing I "sold" in this site were Coke codes and Dr. Pepper promotional codes. Not a bad profit for trading codes/trash. I am notorious for picking up Coke codes up off the ground.
My Points: roughly $100 in Gift Cards (Wal-Mart, CVS, Pizza Hut)
It is difficult to say how much I saved with coupons this year, but I would say in the $500 range, including free item coupons and regular X amount off coupons.
Facebook is definitely a tightwads friend because many companies are offering exclusive coupons and freebies (of which I benefited greatly! lol) I just received a free bag of Purina One dog food from a FB promo. My dog is quite happy! My favorite is probably my large area rug from Natural Home Rug.
