Ways to Get FREE Christmas Gifts

I’m not talking about junk that people roll their eyes at . . . I’m talking about legitimate, would have bought it anyway, Christmas gifts!

There are several different ways I am able to get great gifts for FREE:

#1 – Swagbucks

If you don’t know how Swagbucks works yet – you sign up and then use Swagbucks to surf the Internet.

You can even download the toolbar and use it navigate to websites.

As you use it, you earn bucks that you can trade for rewards. I usually wait until I get 450 bucks and then trade them for $5 Amazon gift cards.

It’s really easy and I am able to use them to buy whatever I want on Amazon! GREAT Christmas gifts.

#2 – Earning Referral Credits from the Daily Deal Sites

It seems like lately daily deal sites have just been popping up all over. Almost every one of them offers credit for referring others to sign up and make purchases. I have already used the small referral fees I’ve earned to buy several gifts for the holidays.

The best one right now is probably the Foundary because they are new and they are offering a $1 credit (up to $50) for every referral that joins and then an additional $20 for each referral that makes a purchase.

Or you can sign up for Adpages and get $10 for each referral who signs up from your link and makes a purchase.

Plus right now you can enter to win a $25 credit from them and enter to win more credits by signing up for their Twitter and Facebook feeds – all of which you can use to buy deals and get FREE Christmas gifts.

If neither of these works for you, you can see an entire list of daily deal sites in the MelissaStuff Shopping Directory.

#3 – Winning Giveaways 

Not all giveaways are things you would want to win or give anyone for Christmas! But if you are selective, you can win some great gifts. Just because YOU didn’t pay for it doesn’t mean it isn’t a valuable gift.

Keep your eyes peeled for good giveaways. If you don’t know where to start, you can find a list of current giveaways here. Right now, you can enter to win items such as purses, bath and body products, gourmet foods, pillow pets, gift certificates . . . the list could go on and on.

Just be selective about what you enter and don’t waste time on giveaways that have more than about 150 entries since your odds on winning them aren’t near as good.

#4 – Sign Up for Promo Deals

Frequently, when a site or store opens, they will offer a credit for the first people to register at their website. Recently Ruelala offered a $20 credit! Today, you can get FREE clothing – even after shipping – with that $20 credit!

I do my best to post any of these promo deals that I find, so make sure you take advantage of them as soon as you see them. Frequently, they are only available for a limited time or for a certain number of people.

With these tips, you really can get Christmas gifts for 100% FREE!

Anybody have any other suggestions?

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
