Have you signed up with SwagBucks yet?

I admit I was skeptical when I first heard about this “search and win” business. But, since signing up, our family has enjoyed free Starbucks and free books and gifts from Amazon. It’s really easy to win.

Just sign up and use SwagBucks as your search engine. In doing so, you can win “swagbucks” which can be redeemed for all sorts of prizing, including gift cards to businesses like iTunes, Starbucks,, and Amazon.

SwagBucks also posts special SwagCodes all over the internet to earn extra points. Plus, if you refer your friends and family, you can win each time they do, up to 100 points per sign up.

SwagBucks has offered a special incentive for Life as MOM readers to sign up this weekend. Register and then use the code LIFEASMOM (case sensitive) to earn extra points. New users will earn a total of five points just for registering and redeeming that code.

Hint: Once I opened my account, I made Swagbucks the homepage on the computer so that the kids and FishPapa would automatically use this search engine whenever they sat down to surf. You can also download any of a number of toolbars, so that it’s easier to search and win. FishPapa has been the Big Winner around here, earning 5 and 10 SwagBuck notes on different occasions. You would think that someone had scored a touchdown with all the victory dances going on around here.

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
