Get more free gift cards for the Holidays from Swagbucks during December’s Swago with Spin & Win

 

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during their December “Swago” promotion starting Monday, December 4th at 9am PT and running until Monday, December 11th! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips:

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, December 11th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you’ll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, December 11th to use all your spins.

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points – if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.

Click here right now and click “Join” to get started! If you don’t already have a Swagbucks account, you’ll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of January, you’ll get a bonus 300 SB!

HURRY! Help Feed Hurricane Survivors

 

As we all know, there are many people that were affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. People had flood damage, lost their homes, clothes, cars, and more. I personally know people who were affected by both Hurricanes. The stories are hard to hear. I have been working very hard for the entire month of September to help make a difference. However, I need your help!

You can help while you are getting some great, high quality, kitchen tools for yourself. Pampered Chef is backed with a 30 day money back guarantee and their items have 1 year, 3 year and even lifetime guarantees. You will not be disappointed and you will be helping people feed their families in this time of need.

There are two ways to help. You can host a party, to be booked through my fundraiser, or you can make a purchase. Purchases and bookings need to be made by 6pm EST Saturday September 30th. Pampered Chef will donate $6 for each host booked through the fundraiser and 20%-30% of all sales. I have 8 hosts booked through my fundraiser for the Hurricane reliefs. At $6 each donated to Feeding America for the areas affected by Harvey and Irma that is $48 so far. When you book a party it does not need to be a fundraiser. You can get all the host benefits, the same as usual.

I have 2 days to close this show. I still need $80 in order to make it qualifying. If it does not qualify nothing gets donated. When it does qualify 20% goes to the hurricane areas too! That is at least another $40 donated. $1=11 meals. 888 meals! Let’s help! Every little purchase matters. Even I have made a purchase for it. We can do this together. 2 days, 2 hurricanes, 2 areas, 2 minutes of your time, hundreds of meals!

If you have any questions, need any help, or would like to host a party you can contact me via email, or on Facebook.

Thank you for your consideration in helping this fundraiser.

My 5 Favorite Essential Oils that Cure Everything!

Aromatherapy is an often undervalued holistically, but the field is blossoming. Now more than ever, healthcare professionals are incorporating essential oils into their offerings and others are turning to them to dive deeper with self-care practices. If you are looking to kick-start aromatherapy studies, look no further. Want to heal skin issues? Reduce anxiety? Continue reading on for the fun and factual 4-1-1 of the 5 must-have essential oils that make the perfect at-home collection!

 

The 5 Must-Have Essential Oils That Make the Perfect at-Home Collection!

  1. Ylang Ylang

Distilled from the flowers of a tropical tree, it’s sometimes nicknamed ‘poor man’s jasmine.’ The exotic, feminine scent is an aphrodisiac and confidence booster. Ylang Ylang has an affinity for the male and female reproductive systems, supporting PMS, impotence, and dysmenorrhea. It’s also one of the most harmonizing oils, reducing pulse rate while simultaneously increasing alertness.

Examples of use: You can apply Ylang Ylang oil to the skin to promote relaxation, kill bacteria, lower high blood pressure, and increase sexual desire. It is also part of a combination spray used to kill head lice

2. Vetiver

Vetiver is a safe, viscous oil, distilled from the root. Its woody and strong root-like smell has customarily been used to bring about tranquility and ward off bugs. Today, Vetiver is considered one of the most balancing and grounding essential oils. If you’re feeling flighty or scattered, one whiff of Vetiver can center your mind and body. Searching for a natural way to reduce anxiety? Vetiver may help!

Examples of use: People use Vetiver for nerve and circulation problems.

3. Tea Tree

Like Eucalyptus, Tea Tree is native to Australia where it was traditionally used in indigenous medicine to heal skin infections. It’s balsamic, spicy scent soothes respiratory ailments and is gentle enough to use undiluted in small amounts on healthy, adult skin. It’s a must-have oil thanks to its immune enhancing properties as an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial.

Examples of use: If you have a sore or infection anywhere on your body, add a drop or two on the affected area and repeat regularly twice a day.

4Lavender

It has been thought for centuries to inflame passions as an aphrodisiac, and is still one of the most recognized scents in the world. The German Commission E commended lavender for treating insomnia, and nervous stomach.

Examples of use: Lavender is used for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness, and depression. It is also used for a variety of digestive complaints including meteorism (abdominal swelling from gas), loss of appetite, vomitingnausea, intestinal gas (flatulence), and upset stomach.

5. Clary Sage

Some people use Clary Sage mucilage, an oily substance secreted by the plant, to remove foreign objects from the eye, to remove thorns and splinters from the skin, and for treating tumors.

Examples of useClary Sage is used for upset stomach and other digestive disorders, as well as kidney diseases.

Hurricane Harvey Relief With Pampered Chef

Hello, Everyone! I am Cara and I am with Pampered Chef. Through the month of September, Pampered Chef is doubling their donations to Feeding America in an effort to help with the Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief. I am hosting a fundraiser right now for it. 20-30% of all sales will go to Feeding America just for the areas affected.

 

For every show that is booked through this fundraiser, $6 will be given instead of the normal $3. If you are interested in helping the cause while still getting things you need for your kitchen, or even gift giving, this is a great time to do so. You can purchase through the Fundraiser here. The fundraiser is scheduled to be closed on the 15th. If you are interested in hosting a virtual party on Facebook, you can email me.

 

One thing that Pampered Chef does every month has an item that a portion of all sales from them goes to Feeding America for the hosts or purchasers local community. The Pancake Blender Bottle is the item for September. $1 of every bottle purchased goes to Feeding America. $1=11 meals.

If you have any questions feel free to let me know. Thank you.

 

 

 

 

Amazon Hacks to Save You Even More Money

If you are like me you are a huge fan of Amazon! I am a Prime member and I can’t tell you how much I love that Free 2-Day shipping, it has saved me tons of money over the years. But, did you know there are other awesome Amazon hacks to save you, even more, money with your purchases!? I am going to share these hacks with you, to help maximize your savings with each purchase you make!

Amazon is a very convenient place to shop because they have pretty much everything you will need. If you shop often and are not a Prime member, I suggest taking the plunge! Some of the hacks and tips listed below, are for Prime members only, but there are some that any customer who uses Amazon can use to save extra money!

Maximize Your Savings With These Amazon Shopping Tricks 

 

Refund If Price Drops

Use Paribus.co and sign up for Free today. Then each time you place an order through Amazon, it will keep track. If they find a price drop, you will get an email from them letting you know, and you can submit a claim for a refund. or a refund on your behalf. Amazon only offers refunds for those items that are sold and shipped by Amazon, not third-party suppliers.

Cash Back Sites 

Ebates and BeFrugal both offer cash back on Amazon purchases when they fit in certain categories. Some of the categories are shoes, furniture, handbags, etc. You can get a percentage back on your purchase when it qualifies. It is worth signing up at one or both sites, to maximize your savings!

Wait to Place Order

Add items you are interested into your cart, and let them sit for a few days. Make sure you are signed into your Amazon account when you do this so it knows you. Then after a few days, you will get a reminder email from Amazon stating you have items left in your cart. Sometimes, not always, you will get a price reduction, to entice you to buy! So, if you have a little bit of time to waste, and don’t need the items right away, let them sit and see if you get a price drop!

Coupons 

Just like other stores, you can use Amazon coupons to clip virtually to save you some money! Just search for the brand or product you are wanting to buy to see if they have a coupon for it. Sometimes you will see the coupon under the price of the item when you are searching around, but if you don’t see it, go the coupon page to search.

Join Swagbucks for FREE Gift Cards 

If you have free time join Swagbucks and earn rewards for answering questions and earn points, which you can later redeem for Amazon Gift Cards.

Free Prime for College Students 

If you have an .edu email address you can get a Free Prime 6 month membership, that is just for college students!

Avoid Potential Taxes

This works sometimes, depending on where you live. Look at third-party sellers, for items you want to buy, and depending on where they are located could save you a little money on tax. You won’t get the free two-day shipping since they are not fulfilled and shipped at Amazon, but it can save you a little cash on taxes. Just research to ensure you are actually saving going this route.

Amazon Store Card 

By signing up for the Amazon Store Card, you will get a permanent rebate of 5% off anything you buy!

Add Second Adult to Prime Account 

You and your partner can use Prime, without paying for two accounts. Just add them on the list, and they just have to have the same address as you. Once approved they will get the same benefits. You both will have access to all the credit cards on the account, so take note of that.

Special Email Discounts 

On occasion, Prime members will get emails with special exclusive discounts for members. At one time Prime members got an extra 50% off Amazon Echo, the Fire TV stick and more.

1 Month Free When 2 Day Shipping Fails 

If Amazon fails and your items you ordered don’t arrive in two days, contact customer service. They generally offer a refund or even 1 free month of Prime membership!

Warehouse Deals 

Make sure to look at the Amazon Warehouse page, to find any extra savings. You can find items that are 50% off or more, that might be used or refurbished, and they are all tested by Amazon to ensure they function properly.

Amazon Outlet

The Amazon Outlet sells pre-owned items for up to 80% off, great place to find awesome deals. They also sell out of season items, overstock and more.

No-Rush Shipping 

If you are not in a rush, choose the no-rush shipping option. They will offer you a $1 credit towards an Instant Video, by selecting this, which is a nice perk!

Price Drop Notification

CamelCamelCamel is a great tool to be signed up with. Get alerts when an item you are interested in has a price drop!
