All Over the Place

I was just wondering if you have any other ideas for me on how to save a few bucks on Christmas or earn a few. I'm still getting free money and gift cards but is there a way to stretch that even farther. Here is what I'm doing to get money and gift cards...................
Pinecone Research
swagbucks(not for Christmas but it would be a sin to leave it out)
Inbox dollars
Send Earnings
My Points
Recycle Bank
Disney Movie Rewards
BP credit card(I like it better than my Bank of America card now. You get 1% or 5% for gas immediately & you don't have to wait until you earn $250 to get the full 1%)
Bank of America credit card points
I can't think of anything else at the moment. I've been buying gift cards for the most part to stretch the free money. I have been using............
Screaming Daily Deals
Did I miss anything,

I have used Nesteggz before, and had no problem with their program until this spring. I've made over $1000 using the site, so I guess one delayed check isn't too bad.

Most of my Christmas presents were bought with Swagbucks Amazon gift cards. Now I'm saving up for what I want.

Sorry, I have no tips for you. But I do have a question. What do you buy for so many people? You are too generous.
Your Friend, m.
p.s. You can scratch me off your list this year. I'm fine.

SavingStar credit! You clip eCoupons for grocery items & they credit your account when you buy the item(s). Once you save $5, it goes to your bank account, PayPal or an Amazon GC. I'm on my 3rd Amazon GC! Check it out ;)

Dy-I have never heard of that one before! I get so excited when I find a new one. I'm going to do a little happy dance!
Thank you!

Mark-I blame my inlaws for this mess. I love them and they are wonderful. The problem is when I first got in the family I was given the ground rules. They bought for everyone and their distant cousins. I followed suit cuz I wanted to fit in. Mind you, we have stopped with a lot of people but I still have 75 on the list. We give out a lot of small family gifts so 1 thing is for 4 or 5 people. I know it is still scary but I'm not going to change it. Here we are and this is what I have to work with. But I do think that I will be able to get gifts for everyone and it will only be about $300 OOP. That really is my goal-buy a bunch of nice gifts and pay nothing or next to nothing.

SonyaAnn said...

Sheila-I have that one but I'm not doing so hot with it. I think that I must be doing something wrong.
Thank you so much!

You are amazing... I have a $5 gift card from Target and a $25 gift card from Outback and plan to use it all on myself.
As for Christmas presents?? Well, they'll just have to fend for themselves...

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-I'm sitting here laughing. I like how you are thinking!

@ Mark....she might actually be able to keep it under $ long as we keep her out of the COACH OUTLET!
You weren't here last year when she went off the deep end was Not pretty!lol j/k

SonyaAnn said...

sluggy-Ummmm that may have been directed at Mark but I can still SEE it.
And yes dear, I'm staying away from Coach. Think Gift cards.

slugmama said...

SonyaAnn said...

I use my survey $$ mostly to boost the travel fund and Swagbucks converted to amazon to buy books for me :-) You have a long list and the only ones I'd add are Opinion Outpost and Global Test Market, I've earned a lot of extra money through them.

SonyaAnn said...

Canadian Saver-Thank you for the info, I'll be checking those out!
And thank you for coming to see me!
