As promised, here’s one idea for earning extra money for your holiday fund!
This week I took advantage of an easy money-making offer on MyPoints, a reward site similar to Swagbucks. Through 10/27, pay $10 for a 2-month membership to Gamefly (a DVD and video game rental service) and earn enough points for $28 worth of Amazon gift cards.
This was my first time using MyPoints and I was very impressed! I expected there to be a delay of at least a few days in getting my 4,500 points for the GameFly offer, but they were deposited in my account instantly.
I was then able to redeem my points for a $25 Amazon gift card and a $3 Amazon gift card and added them to my Amazon gift card balance right away! You can choose to receive gift cards from many other stores in addition to Amazon and even get $25 cash from PayPal.
The whole process took me about 5 minutes, and we are receiving two DVD rentals from GameFly as well. Just remember to make a note in your planner to cancel the GameFly subscription if you don’t want it to renew after the 2-month period is up!
