Code Alert - Disney Movie Rewards



Are you a member of Disney Movie Rewards? Get a holiday bonus of 50 points in your account and enter a couple of new sweepstakes while you are at it. Disney reward points are generally only given out when you purchase a Disney movie. I was excited for an opportunity to add points to my account without a purchase.


This came from an email that was sent to Disney Movie Rewards members. "Simply Go Here, see what symbol is being used for our holiday Donation Rewards Icon. Enter the correct name for the symbol - Just like entering a magic code - to collect your 50 bonus points."

After you are logged in, just look for the box that instructs you to enter your code and hit go. Quick and Easy!

$15 free credit at Kodak Gallery


Kodak is giving away 300,000 free codes worth $15 at the newly redesigned Kodak Gallery. You can use the code to get free or reduced price prints. Prints are only 9 cents. They also carry gift items like photo mugs and photo books. These would make cute Christmas gifts for grandparents.

They are giving these coupons away in 3 phases with a minimum of 100,000 given away at a time:

Phase 1 (Oct 20 - Oct 28)
Phase 2 (Oct 29 - Nov 5)
Phase 3 (Nov 6 – Nov 13)

After all the codes have been given out for the current phase, you will be given a code for 40% off. However, you can try again for the $15 code in the next phase. Everyone who signs up is also entered for a trip to see a taping of the Ellen Degeneres show.

Take 5 – Oct 19 - Christmas gifts for children

I have decided to start a new daily feature on this blog called “Take 5.” Each day I will feature 5 ways that can help stretch your budget. The topic will change from day to day, ranging from giveaways, to ways to earn money from home, to things you can make yourself. You never know what you might find!

Today’s Take 5 focuses on blog giveaways that would make great gifts for children. Christmas will be here before we know it. Have you started shopping already? I don’t know about most people, but with the economy the way it is, our budget for Christmas has shrunk quite a bit. With four kids of my own and several nieces and nephews to buy gifts for, I am always on the lookout for giveaways that would make nice gifts. These giveaways all end tomorrow so be sure to get your entry submitted.

Swag Code Alert - exp 10/17 3pm pacific

Search & Win


In case you missed it, you might want to check out the Swagbucks newsletter that was sent out an hour ago. There is a swag code at the end, good for 1 Swagbuck. If you aren't currently receiving the newsletter, you can sign up using the link on the right side of the home page.

Want an easy way to check and see if there are Swag Codes currently available? Scroll to the bottom of this page to my Swagbucks widget. Click on Swagcodes and it will tell you if there is one currently available and give you a clue as to where it is located. Since I have started checking that widget regularly, I have been getting a lot more Swagbucks. You can click on "grab this widget" to get the code and put it on your own blog.

I like to exchange my Swagbucks for Amazon gift certificates. I am using them to buy Christmas gifts and it is making a huge difference in our budget! It is only mid October and I have half my Christmas gifts bought thanks to all the gift certificates I have received from my online activities.

The Ikea Fund

Maybe you are looking to earn a few extra dollars to help with Christmas. Maybe you are saving up for something special. No matter what your intention, it is important to set goals. I have no delusions that my online activities are going to make me rich. However, they do help us to afford things that we wouldn't otherwise be able to on my husband's salary. Between various rewards programs and sweepstakes, I already have a nice start on Christmas and it is only the beginning of September. We also are able to put money aside for a special fund that is helping us get our house organized.

In our house, we have an "Ikea fund." When Ikea moved into the area, we discovered that our house could really benefit from some of their spacesaving designs. Unfortunately we can't afford to buy everything at once. So we started a fund to save for the purchases from Ikea. Every little bit of cash I earn from my activities goes into that fund. The amount from gift cards that I get are also added to the fund. For example, I recently won a $25 gas card. Gas is something that I would have to purchase anyway. So I took the $25 that I would have otherwise spent on gas and added it to the fund.

The one thing that really motivates me to grow the fund is that I have a goal already in mind for that money. It is important that your goals be attainable and specific. For instance, I was recently able to finish off my craft closet with an organizational unit from Ikea. I knew in advance what I wanted so I knew just how much money I needed to put up. I saved for it for several months. It gave me great pleasure to purchase it with cash that I had diligently squirreled away. I had printed off a shopping list from Ikea with all the parts needed and the total price. I put the list where I could see it daily. It really motivated me to put in the work daily so I could meet my goal. Our next goal for the office is a set of bookshelves. Bit by bit and room by room, our house is getting a makeover! And we aren't running up credit cards to do it!

So I encourage you to have specific goals in mind as you participate in various money-making activities on the internet. It will keep you motivated and on track.


Week in Review 9/11/09

Kind of a slow week but still had a few things worth mentioning.

I used some of the Amazon gift certificates earned from Swagbucks to get part of my daughter's birthday presents. The rest will go towards Christmas.

Got another $5 check from Honey Nut Cheerio's Sweet Rewards Giveaway. I have won 8 times now. You can win up to 10 times. This one doesn't expire until March of 2010 so you have plenty of time to get yours. Another $5 for the Ikea fund.

My biggest surprise this week was a Sony CyberShot camera that I won from a Bic Sweepstakes. ARV $280. This is a nice camera! Now I just need a memory stick for it. It will be a nice replacement for my Kodak EasyShare that I dropped and is only partially functional.

Things I did this week that will benefit me later:

  • Sent for a Rite-Aid Rebate of $6
  • Earned 13 Swagbucks. Swagbucks released a new toolbar. Be sure to check it daily for swagcodes that can add more swagbucks to your account. My total for Swagbucks is now 41. Just 4 more to get an Amazon gift certificate.
  • Sold some old textbooks on Amazon. That's $153 more into my Ikea fund!
  • Downloaded the survey reminder from NFO MySurvey to bring my total to 815 points. You only need 1000 points to receive a $10 check.

Happy Earning!
