Snowflake Update

May 16th, 2013 at 08:34 am

Yes, I'm still snowflaking for Christmas, but the additions seem a little slow right now, thus lack of updates. I have accumulated $134.02 so far this month, which is pretty good. It's nice to think I could reach our goal by the end of June at this rate. Which means I could actually shop at those Christmas in July sales! Eh...probably not though.

_$50.00 Swagbucks
_$70.25 Chase Rewards
__$4.78 ATM rebates/interest
__$8.99 Ebay sale
$134.02 May Total To Date

I did redeem another $25 PayPal deposit from Swagbucks that should arrive before the month ends. I also redeemed my points with Pinecone yesterday, so I should have $3 arriving sometime today. With those additions. I will need just under $75 to meet my goal of $750. It does seem I'm on track like I was last year because I accumulated over $1400 in snowflakes. In fact, I might be ahead of the game. Smile

This year snowflakes beyond the $750 are getting put towards are mortgage. I need to be adding money in there when I can and this seems like the first place to start.

I found out my daughter has just one flute lesson left before the school year ends. The teacher is offering six lessons during the summer, with a mini recital. We can probably make five lessons. I like know we will save a little bit because we don't have those fees those weeks.

I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to snowflake debt. Have you found new sources or interesting ways to accumulate them? Do you have a year to date snowflake total?

    How much time do you normally have to spend to get the swagbucks? I had tried it a couple years ago and found it frustrating when my searches never turned up anything remotely what I was looking for. Just wondering if its improved since then.

    I think the searching is somewhat better but it sure isn't Google! I only gather 10-20 points a day and I do that by watching videos and playing games.

    Like CCF, my Swagbucks have been going well. I shop a fair amount at Target.com and that helps too. The searching is awful. And I cashed Pinecone today too!

    Guppy - Swagbucks didn't work for me either. I could never get enough points.

    Right now I am using Ebates as my snowflake road. I just buy my household supplies on there through Drugstore.com. So I get at least 6% back plus I earn drugstore.com bucks that I can use towards my purchases. Plus you get free shipping with every $25 purchase.

    Wouldn't it be great to get some of your Christmas shopping finished in July! Good job on saving!

    Guess I must be doing something right. I have been averaging about 100 Swagbucks a day for the past 6 months or so. Mostly from surveys. A low to no cost Christmas works for me.

    @guppy, searching on Swagbucks is just ONE of many ways to earn on the site. Surveys are the best way to accumulate fast, but there are other smaller ways. I think EVERYONE can easily accumulate enough points to get $5 per month and that is a good place to start. The more you do it the more you discover other options for earning.
