This is a post from last year that was popular so I thought I would share it again.  I hope you find the tips helpful!
Are you starting to feel like this?  Holiday shopping can be stressful, especially if you do not have a lot of money.  Last month (October 2011) I shared how you can earn gift cards from various online companies.  Click Here to read more about it.  I thought I would update you on how my shopping is going so you can see that it really does work!

(Now lets hope no one on my list is reading this:) - I was able to cash out for a $20 gift card - I was able to cash out for a $25 gift card -   I was able to cash out for a $25 gift card and a DVD movie (a new release too)

Disney Movie Rewards - I was able able to cash out some of my points for a $20 Disney store gift card.  This is a deal they had last month that went really quick.

Daily Deal Site deals - A lot of these companies are offering free credit.  Be on the look out for great deals.  I was able to get the set of 4 drinking glasses from that I mentioned yesterday.  Also, was giving away credit awhile back.  I was able to get 2 bags of coffee today for free.  

Surveys - I have also been saving some gift cards that I have received from taking surveys:

$25 Visa Gift Card
$25 American Eagle Gift Card
$10 Bath & Body Works Gift Card
$20 XYZ Store Gift Card (cannot give this one away!)

Total for Christmas Presents FREE
$170 in gift cards
1 set of glasses
2 bags of coffee

1 DVD Movie

See, it does work!  Now I did save up these points all year, but it was so worth it.  By taking surveys I was also able to earn Paypal cash and Amazon credit as well as cash out for checks to help with the shopping as well and have some "Fun Money" for the entire year.  

If you have any questions let me know!
