Swago: Back to School Shopping Edition

If you still haven’t done your Back to School shopping, here’s a way you can get paid for finding the best deals for yourself for the season or the kids in your life..

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It’s
a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you’ve never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly.

Click here to get started!

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

  • Shop Swago will begin on Monday, August 7th at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have a limited amount of time 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.
  • The game ends Thursday, August 10th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

    Also, if you sign up through me this month, you’ll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the “Swag Ups” area of “My Account”

Kraigen Rulers


Back to school is right around the corner or for some has already started. If looking for a bulk number of rulers, the ones by Kraigen are worth checking out.

These rulers feature centimeters and inch scales. They are made out of hardwood. These are light weight and precise in measurement.

The thickness is good and I don’t have to worry about the print fading. I like wood over plastic as they’ll hold up better.

Though a number of these are being dedicated to our schooling supplies, I’m also going to be keeping a few in my craft and tool stash.

A set of 12 is currently $7.99 on Amazon as of this posting.
