Resolve to Use a Better Bank Now - Why Wait until 2013?

My online bank just keeps getting better! If you're tired of being nickeled and dimed by bank fees or looking for a higher interest rate and more convenient way to manage your finances then take a look at ING Direct. They are an online bank with free ATMs located across the country. I'm sure you've seen a commercial or two with the big orange ball. Yesterday was my 10 Year Anniversary since opening my first ING account.....WOW! Time flies when you're saving money!

I love this bank for so many reasons but my greatest love is for their smart phone app which lets me do all my banking on the go. The ultimate coolest feature of all, in my opinion, is what they call "Checkmate." Checkmate allows you to deposit a check by uploading a picture from your smart phone or via your computer. No more waiting in line at the drive up window or inching your way through the indoor teller lines.

If saving money is part of your New Year's resolutions start by banking smarter with ING Direct. You don't have to wait for January 1st to do this. Go here to learn about opening an ING checking and or savings account and the current cash bonuses offered for doing so. Happy savings to you!

Gift Cards, Kroger, Gas Discounts and Ebates!

Are you aware of the awesome gift card promotion at Kroger grocery stores? If you have a Kroger store nearby and you plan on purchasing gift cards for the holidays, buy them from Kroger and get 4X the gas rewards! Normally Kroger gives 10 cents off per gallon of gas with every $100 grocery purchase you make. Currently (check your local Kroger store to see when promotion ends) they will give you 4X that on your gift card purchases (Kroger gift cards not included) So if gift cards are on your shopping list this year, buying them at Kroger will help stretch your gas budget! For example, purchase $100 in gift cards and get 40 cents off per gallon of gas on your next fill up! Go here to get an idea of the gift cards offered. You'll need to buy them at your local Kroger store and be sure to scan your Kroger rewards card when you make the purchase.

So now you know how gift cards can help fill your gas tank but how does Ebates factor in to the title of this post? While you're buying gift cards at Kroger to give as gifts, consider purchasing gift cards for yourself to spend at online retailers you plan on shopping at, either for gifts or personal purchases. You'll earn more Kroger gas rewards and you can also use those gift cards to earn cash back from Ebates!  Let me explain.

For example, you plan on ordering some video games from Gamestop, some clothing from American Eagle and toys from Toys R Us. Follow these easy steps to get the most from your money. It's as easy as 1-2-3!

1) Purchase the Gamestop, American Eagle and Toys R Us gift cards from Kroger. Remember, you were already planning on ordering from these retailers anyway. The only difference is that you will now be paying for your purchases with gift cards instead of credit cards.

2) Log in to Ebates. If you're not already a member signup here and get a new member bonus too! (Yes, it's FREE)

3) Search for the retailers you have gift cards for and click thru to their sites from the Ebates page. You will see a screen that says your purchases are being tracked and you will earn a percentage of cash back. Pay for your orders with the gift cards you purchased at Kroger and shortly after you receive your purchases you will see the cash rebates in your Ebates account. 


You've just earned discounts on gas and cash back on purchases you planned on making anyway! I love combining deals like this to get the most bang for my buck. What other discounts, websites, deals have you found that can be combined to enhance your savings?

Stretching Your Budget Gets Easier With Swagbucks

It's that time of year again when the kids start making their wish lists and parents start worrying about trying to keep everyone happy without breaking the budget. Well if you need help making the most of your holiday shopping, Swagbucks is coming to the rescue!


 Starting on November 1st, for the rest of the year the Swagbucks Swag Store will be bringing you lower prices and limitless rewards. To break it down for you, all $5 gift cards will now be 500 Swag Bucks, $10 gift cards will be 1000 Swag Bucks, $25 Gift Cards will be 2500 Swag Bucks and so on. This excludes the $5 Amazon.com, which remains the bargain price of 450 SB.
Now you get more bang for your (Swag) Bucks, and with your leftover Swag Bucks, you can now snag even more rewards, because our old monthly redemption limits (except the $5 Amazon.com Gift Card) will be gone. You’re still limited to 2 rewards per day, but you don’t have to worry about which prizes you’re redeeming, because Swagbucks just expanded your monthly SB budget!

The Buzz on PollBuzzer - Refreshing New Take on Paid Surveys

I've recommended many survey sites on this blog. But I have to say that PollBuzzer is the most intriguing one I've found to date. Most survey sites will invite you to many different surveys that you may or may not qualify for. You may leave a survey feeling cheated after spending several minutes answering questions before they tell you that you are disqualified. Or, if you do invest 15 - 20 minutes for a measly .50 payment you might question if it was worth your time to participate. Well, Pollbuzzer doesn't waste your time or leave you feeling underpaid. Their concept is very simple. Answer a 1 question survey and get paid $1. That's it! It took me 15 seconds to read one question, click my answer and earn a $1 paypal payment which arrived within 24 hours. Actually, I've taken 6 one question Pollbuzzer surveys and gotten paid $6 dollars so far.  I wish all survey sites would adopt this payment plan! Pollbuzzer is my newest favorite easy and fun no-risk extra income generator!

Get Paid to Read Text Messages with Cash Texts

Text messages are becoming the fastest way for advertisers to reach customers on the go and point them to deals, sales, special offers etc. I've signed up for text alerts with many of the stores and websites I shop at and enjoy getting the quick little blasts of info on my phone. These alerts have saved me money and time while out and about when running errands and shopping. Now, just imagine if you could actually make money by reading text messages from a variety of advertisers.

Well now you can! Cash Texts is a new business opportunity that is in the start up phase and needs people like me and you to sign up to receive paid text messages from their clients. They pay .05 per message received by you and .03 per message received by your referrals down 5 levels. You also have a chance of winning larger amounts of cash with every message you read. This concept might be familiar to those of you who already participate in the Get Paid To Read Email or Click on Ads type of programs.


I have not made any money yet with this company since they are still in start up mode but I was willing to get in now before it takes off and wanted to pass the info on to my readers. Signup is FREE of course and I can't promise how much or when anyone will begin to make money. Since it is FREE there is no risk to get in now and see what happens. The more people that sign on to receive texts the more influence and appeal the company will have in recruiting new advertisers. Over 60,000 have joined as of today! Sign up here at Cash Texts and start telling friends about it. There is also a short video on that page which should help with any questions you have!
