Here is an update on some money or gift cards I have earned online:
Hotspex - $10
It's a survey site where you earn points. Each time you do a survey you get to spin the hotspex wheel for extra points or instant prizes. I won $10 a few weeks ago and they mailed me a check. I am really disappointed in this site and will not be using it anymore because of recent changes. You used to be able to go on points.com and redeem your points for gift cards or even trade them for other points programs like HBC, aeroplan miles etc. But they cancelled their agreement with points.com so now I have all these points that are void. Now all you get to do is use your points to enter contest. BOO. Not impressed.
Air Miles: $25 HBC gift card.
I traded in 200 air miles for an HBC gift card. I am just waiting for it to come in the mail. My favourite makeup line, MAC has a counter in The Bay in the mall here, so I am probably going to treat myself to something there. Or maybe boots. We'll see.
Swagbucks- $5 Amazon.com gift card (up to $15 dollars now).
I finally got another amazon.com gift card, and ever since I installed the toolbar I have been earning them much faster because I am alerted when there is new swag codes. I am looking forward to redeeming them a bit more often!
