Jan 2017 Freebies

So I have decided instead of posting about all my freebies on facebook or instagram this year. I am going to do one blog at the end of each month (well at the end of my month when I get through all my emails from the month before) and let my readers see what companies I work with and if they have any questions they can ask. Usually I have just kept track of my items by date but this year since I am hoping to purge a few companies in the next few months to a year when I will probably start working outside of the home and won't have as much time. Somehow even though I have two mornings a week with no children I have less time than ever before. Anyways each month I will showcase a few of the companies I work with- giving you the good the bad and the ugly and then if you have some spare time maybe you pick one to sign up for maybe you don't. 
     This month I got a lot from Coke points- if you ever look at your 12 packs or even bottles there are codes on them and you can redeem them for prizes. This started the year Kjell and I were married and we used to go to our recycling center (which was a semi trailer) and dig out the codes we got SO many good things- then they started putting caps on how many points you could enter and I found out in January they are discontinuing the program that is why I got so many things I am cashing out points we have had for awhile now. 
   Crowdtap is a very fun company they have also started giving out less points which means I have stopped giving them a lot of my time but they are still my favorite as far as how they work you just go and give them opinions and get points. When you get 1000 you get a $5 amazon gift code. They also send products for me to test and promote if I like them. They used to give about 120 points for completing all the steps on those now they give 20 so I have to really like the product to sign up. 
  E-Rewards deals in $ but they don't pay you in the $ per survey so it looks good- take this 10 minute survey make $5 but a $50 GC costs 145 of their dollars. I like this company not too many surveys and no matter what they give you .25 in their money per survey you try. 
   The IPSOS is actually from one survey- They asked Justus and myself to take a two day discussion survey about some commercials. It took us about an hour total to do it (30 minutes each day) and then we had our choice of gift cards. I chose something we could use together and we  got to go see the new Lego Movie last weekend 
We also plan to use the Redbox gift cards for a few movies we didn't get to see over Christmas break like we had hoped to!
Smiley360 usually sends me good stuff and they want me to promote it on my facebook and Twitter pages, so I was very surprised when I told them in a survey that I was not a big drinker I got this package in the mail. 
Ummmm Thanks?? Ok so the good news is for my readers is I am giving this gift pack away. It comes with the hat, the black keychain and the coozie. I am keeping the star keychain because it looks cool and my girls told me I couldn't get rid of it and they have no idea what Heineken is.  Look for how to enter to win it at the bottom of this blog! This prize WILL NOT BE MAILED so you must have a way for me to get it to you in the next month so Abilene, Meade, Topeka areas and most places in between. 
Finally the last one I will talk about is YouGov- yes I made $100 dollars with them but it took me a long while. I needed 100,000 points to get to that amount and most surveys are 500 and a few are a bit more 1500 to 3000. I did end up leaving this company after I cashed out with some regrets. I left because the only good prize they have is the $100 gift card. The rest of the prizes are JUNK so if you want to commit to one company this might be the one for you. Maybe 1 survey a day and they are used by the media many of their surveys are political in nature and I have seen multiple media outlets use their data so I actually felt like I was making a difference.  Thanks for reading and DON'T forget to enter to win. I am also giving away two free Banza chickpea pasta coupons and it doesn't matter where you live I will mail those to you if you win!
