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!
If you haven’t heard, you should know that Jeremy Camp recently released his first full length Christmas album in his 10 year career. And if you are already a fan of Jeremy, you’ll probably want to snag “Christmas: God With Us” to enjoy whether listening to it as background music for holiday get-togethers, trips here in there in car, wrapping presents, and whatever else you find yourself doing during the holidays!
On this album you’ll find many well known and traditionally loved Holiday classics with one original title track “God With Us”. Total album run time is a about thirty five minutes long and there are a total of ten tracks. A few of our favorites include “Mary Did You Know”, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”, and O Little Town of Bethlehem”.
I was surprised to find songs such as Jingle Bell Rock and Let it Snow on the album but overall thought that Jeremy did a great job in offering a fresh new arrangement of many of the songs I have grown to love to listen to during the holidays! His voice is rich , strong, and he knows how to offer up a deep meaningfulness behind every song sung.
My family and I have been enjoying listening to this album and it will definitely be a regular in our pile of Christmas albums to listen to from now until Christmas Day. I give God with Us a 4 out of 5 rating.
Buy it: If interested in purchasing Christmas: God with Us for yourself, a friend, or a loved one, you can do so as it’s currently 7.99 for an MP3 album or you can get it for less than 10.00 for a physical copy on Amazon.com.

On October 30th, Chris Mann’s debut album “Roads” will be hitting the streets! If you have not heard about Chris Mann, I must say you are missing out! Chris first made appearance on the opening season of the popular prime-time NBC singing competition show The Voice. I must admit I’ve not seen the show much myself but was pretty impressed with the results of discovering such an artist especially after recently hearing a copy of Chris’s album Roads myself over the weekend.
His album runs about an hour long and there are a total of 11 tracks. Songs included covers such as Lady Antebellum’s hit song “Need You Now”, Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind“ and Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter”. There is even as special guest appearance by Christina Aguilera that I’m sure most fan will delight in!
I can deeply resonate with the song Roads on which the name of the CD was choosen. A few of the lines of the song are “There are roads in this life that we all travel. There are scars and there are battles where we roam. When we are lost or wherever we may go. They will always lead you home,”. Chris’s rich strong voice keeps you drawn into the song completely. It’s a great song to remind us of the journey we are on in life and no matter if you go astray, there’s always the road to home and not to fear what lies ahead.
The Blower’s Daughter is a song I can see being played at weddings, included in special photo and video projects for the loves of our lives, and much more! The power, words, and feeling behind this song can truly be heard from both Chris and Christina! I always enjoy hearing songs that are sung like it’s meant to be heard and felt.
Chris Mann and the background choir included does an exceptional job with the song Ave Maria. No matter what this song has always been a favorite of mine and this version done by Chris has done nothing less of leaving me with goosebumps!
I was touched and completely moved by the entire album of Roads. This is no CD to look over. You totally need this one in your collection! I know I am looking forward to many more albums by this exceptional singer. You must check it our for yourselves! I highly recommend it!
If interested, you can purchase the “Roads” on iTunes (http://bit.ly/SgkwJb) and/or Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/XQpJc8). It would make a great stocking stuffer this Holiday season too! And remember, this album hits the streets on October 30th though you can go ahead and pre-order it right away.
