My Latest Purchase with my Amazon Rewards-Club Penguin Stuff!

One of the perks of earning Amazon rewards is being able to purchase fun things for the kids without spending any of our "real money."  By "real money," I mean my husbands hard earned paycheck!
I do, however, think of my Amazon rewards as "money" too since I use them to purchase a variety of items that might not get purchased otherwise.  Let's just say my Amazon rewards are my "paycheck" and I love my job!!

I also love ordering special things for the kids and surprising them with a toy or game they've been wanting. They don't get everything they ask for and some things just have to wait until a birthday or Christmas, so I am by no means spoiling them.  They still have to "earn" their prizes by doing well in school, having good behavior and helping out around the house.  When they ask for a certain item I check to see if it's available on Amazon, which 99% of the time it is.  Then we work out a reward plan and figure out what they need to do to earn that item.  It works out great!  It doesn't cost me any "real money" and the kids get a feeling of accomplishment and responsibility and everyone's happy when the special item arrives in the mail.

Today was a happy day! Here's a clip of my son and his Club Penguin DS game and Mad Lib book that just arrived today from Amazon.

My Favorite Site for Earning Amazon Rewards is Swagbucks!

At the moment I would have to say my most favorite and easiest way to earn Amazon rewards is by using the Swagbucks website.  I've earned $75 in Amazon rewards since joining Swagbucks in December 2009.  That may not sound like a huge amount right now but if I continue at this pace and combine those rewards with the Amazon rewards I earn from other sources (hint, hint....more info to come) I'll be a very happy Amazon shopper when it comes time for holiday gift buying!

Just think about how you would feel if you had a stash of Amazon rewards to spend around the holidays or for birthdays or just to treat yourself to something special.  Wouldn't it ease your mind knowing that you don't have to put your next purchase on a credit or debit card?  You can just pay for your next Amazon order with the rewards you've earned from Swagbucks or any of the other sites I will be discussing in future posts. Less financial stress is always a good thing!
Besides Amazon rewards, Swagbucks also offers Paypal deposits (which I've treated myself to several times) and other gift cards and prizes.  There are no fees to become a Swagbucks member, or Swaggernaut, as we sometimes call ourselves so I hope you'll sign-up and see how much fun Swagbucks can be!  

So what exactly do you need to do to Earn Amazon Rewards

1) Join Swagbucks for FREE!

2) Download the Swagbucks toolbar from or perform searches directly on the Swagbucks page.  You will randomly win Swagbucks on some of your searches. I usually win 2-3 times per day just by searching. (I've downloaded the toolbar and use it everyday--it's much easier than remembering to go to their website.)  And every Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day where your chances are greater for earning higher denominations of Swagbucks when searching.

3) Use the drop down menu on the top of the Swagbucks homepage to read about the other ways to earn more SB's.  Other ways to earn SB's include taking surveys, voting in the daily polls, earning matching SB's from your referrals searches, trading in your old cell phones and other electronics. (I earn most of my Swagbucks just from searching, referrals searches, and taking surveys.)

If you're still skeptical about trying Swagbucks, I totally understand. I too had the concern that Swagbucks sounded "too good to be true" and I would be wasting my time and never see any results.  I saw many bloggers posting about Swagbucks but just kept passing it by. Well, all I can say is I'm so glad I finally signed up and wish I had done so months before! If you have any questions about Swagbucks please leave them in the comments below and I'll do my best to answer them.

I am now a Swagbucks addict and I'm not ashamed to admit it!  : )  Want to join me?

Welcome to How to Shop for Free at Post!

I've been pursuing online income options for several years and have 2 other blogs that focus on this subject. My first blog, Moms Online Money Makers, contains a wide variety of online income opportunities that I've discovered and implemented to help increase our household income while I continue my journey as a stay at home mom to my 4 kids.  My second blog,  Ehow Articles by bestmommy, is more specific and focuses on my experiences earning money by writing "how to" articles for the site. 

Since I've been having such a BLAST earning Amazon rewards lately, I decided to create this new blog specifically to share what I know about where to earn Amazon rewards, how to earn Amazon rewards and how EASY it can be to earn Amazon rewards.  By rewards, I mean gift cards or gift codes used as currency to spend at

I encourage other moms, dads, grandparents, students with limited finances and anyone else with a wish list of items they'd like to purchase from Amazon to follow or subscribe to this blog. Here you will find many options to build up your Amazon rewards stockpile that will help stretch your family finances year round.

I'm especially excited about the holidays this year, knowing that it'll be much easier to check off Santa's list by spending the Amazon rewards I've been earning instead of spending my husbands hard earned paycheck. It feels great knowing that although I'm a SAHM I can still contribute to the household finances.  Since Amazon is a place where you can buy so many different things, the currency or rewards I've been earning have been almost as valuable as cash to my family.

I hope you'll follow along as I outline the many ways you can earn Amazon rewards so you too can shop for FREE at!  Just follow or subscribe in the right panel and stay tuned for more info.
