How to Make $10 a Week On Your Phone


Swagbucks is the web’s most popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online. Whenever you shop, watch videos or search the web, Swagbucks gives you points called SB. You can use your SB to redeem gift cards to hundreds of your favorite stores. 

With the Swagbucks Mobile and SBTV apps I can use my spare minutes to earn free gift cards on my phone! Like the Swagbucks website, I can rack up SB by shopping, answering surveys and watching videos.  I love running videos at night while I'm getting caught up on emails and blogging.  It's a super easy way to earn.

Here's how you can earn easy SB too:

While you wait for the coffee to brew, download free games and other apps through the Discover tab: 20 SB

During commercial breaks, take a featured survey or fill out your survey profile: 60 SB

While standing in line at the grocery store, answer the daily poll: 1 SB

When you’ve finally made it to the gym, watch style, tech and celeb news through the SBTV app: 2 SB for every 10 videos

Just as you’ve put dinner in the oven, your Swagbucks app tells you there’s a new Swag Code!: 3 SB

Before you go to sleep, use the Swagbucks app to shop from your favorite stores. You deserve it!: 100 SB 

By downloading the Swagbucks mobile app, I can earn a free $10 gift card by the end of my week. Who knew playing on my phone could be so productive!

Invite your friends to download the Swagbucks Mobile app so they can start earning their way to free gift cards. It's 100% free to download and 100% easy to use. Its available for both iPhone and Android devices.

All Things Bright and Beautiful Children's Book Review and Giveaway #AllThingsBrightAndBeautiful #FlyBy

Disclosure:  This book was provided free of charge for the purpose of this review.







"All things bright and beautiful" I have read those words before, but in this recently published book illustrated by artist Katy Hudson it has been brought to life in a whole new way.  You probably know the words too.   The favorite hymn was first published by Cecil Frances Alexander in 1848 and is still a mainstay in churches and Sunday school classes.  In this publication the illustrator brings new joy to the words with her fresh and bright watercolor style. Readers can join in the fun as they follow two little girls and their brother on a day filled with the discovery of “all things bright and beautiful.”


My youngest son and I have been enjoying sharing this book together.  I read the words, but there are so many beautiful images on each page that it takes a while for us to read the whole thing.  He is very happy to point out the bees, flowers, butterflies and more.  He loves to ask "what's that?" when he sees a creature he's not familiar with.  



I love that he can relate to the pictures in the book he is seeing and remembers the time we were flying kites at Grandpa's house and the time we went camping.  I also love that he's growing his vocabulary because of the great amount of detail in the illustrations.



Of course this lovely hymn is a also a very nice reminder of all the good and beautiful things that are in the world around us.



This hard cover book would make a beautiful addition to your family's collection of books or a wonderful gift to a special child in your life.  The book is available now on Amazon.





About the artist:
Katy Hudson was raised in Middlesbrough, England, and started her career as a small child drawing on freshly painted walls. Her parents quickly encouraged drawing with pencil and paper instead. The idea stuck, and after earning a degree in illustration, Katy is now a freelance illustrator. Katy works at a desk in a studio within Old London Library and likes to tap dance in her spare time. 


The Giveaway:  One lucky winner will receive their own copy of All Things Bright and Beautiful.  Giveaway is open to US & CAN residents only. Giveaway ends August 1st.  Good luck!
