You Free $20 Has Arrived Yet Again!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated my deals and I apologize! I have gotten back into media though so you’ll be seeing some new things being added to the blog – along with entirely new sites being introduced.

To kick this off I wanted to start with the Free Money part. This works like the Brinks Prepaid Mastercard deal I had previously posted about – except this is a much more known product from #PayPal, meaning it’s a bit more trustworthy. You will load $40 using a variety of methods, afterwards you will see a credit of $20 within a couple of hours.

Practical Uses:
You may wonder what use the card may have in the first place, or doubt you’ll ever use it. Shockingly the card can be utilized in a wide number of ways.

1) If you’re like me and horrible at remembering to pay bills, this is a nice account to use for automated payments without risking your actual available funds. We’ve all had the months where we’ve forgotten to cancel that subscription and we get hit with that beautiful $35 fee. A way to avoid this is to migrate these accounts to your new PayPal Prepaid Card; Now you’re free to manually load the card each month without the risk of losing your service. It will also allow you to remove the card from any previous accounts.

2) eBay Sellers. This is a gimmie right here! If you’re an eBay Seller like me then there’s no reason to pass this opportunity up. Chances are you’ve already got $40 in your PayPal account and are also subscribed to some kind of automated payments from eBay or its’ internal apps. You can open your new PayPal Prepaid Card account and then immediately transfer $40 from your PayPal Account to your card – you will then see an additional $20 on your new PayPal Account – WOW!

3) Swagbucks, Treasure Hunter, XBOX Live, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Store, Google Play, and more: The card is a great way to earn additional rewards. As you shop and use the card you will notice your amount of offers will begin to increase which you can take advantage of. For those of us who have some type of Online Subscription then you’ll be required to supply a Debit/Credit Card. These are for trying out new services without risking them continuously hitting your bank.

4) First Time Debit/Credit Card Holders: This card is perfect for first time card holders because there are no overdraft fees attached. That’s right – 0! If there aren’t enough funds in the account to cover the charge, then you’re automatically declined instead of being covered and then charge $35 for a simple $3 item.

In all honesty I’ve used the #PayPal Prepaid Card for years, even before PayPal switched from their internal service to this new one. It allows you to instantly transfer money from your PayPal account directly into your Prepaid Account – this is particularly nice especially if you accept mobile payments.

You have multiple options when it comes to choosing how you’re going to load your card. Let’s go over some of the quicker methods:

1) PayPal: This is the absolute quickest and cheapest way to get your money onto the Prepaid Account. You just need to log into your #PayPal Prepaid Account and choosing Move Money > #PayPal Balance Transfer. Your transfer will happen immediately so there’s no waiting for a bank to be added or a $2.95 fee to load the cash in person – plus all the work is done from your computer! Process: Instant.

2) Mobile Check Load: This will need to be done from a mobile device using the #PayPal Prepaid App. Once you’re in you’ll just need to accept the terms and then close the term window out. You’ll see the option to Load Check. Snap a picture of the front and back and then choose which deposit method: Free (10 Days) or pay a fee to have it within a few hours. The fee depends on the amount of the check. Process: 10 Days Free or Instant for a Fee

3) Bank Transfer: This process takes a little longer, but it’s totally free of charge. You will need to sign into your existing bank and retain your Account/Routing Number. This will be then added to the PayPal Account. Small deposits will be made verifying you’re the own then you’re free to transfer money to the account. The entire process takes about 5-8 days.

4) Cash cash cash: You can always visit a Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, Cash America, or any place that loads/sells Prep-Paid Gift Cards. The fees vary from $2.95-$4.95 but the funds are available the moment you hand the cash over. The is the second fasted method but I’ve saved it for last because it requires paying a fee – while the options above are entirely free.

So you make the call – is about a week’s worth of time worth an easy $20?
You could treat yourself and a friend to some #Starbucks.
How about checking out the latest #Marvel Movie?
Maybe you’re looking to download the latest #DLC for your game?
Or perhaps you just need some extra gas…

Any way you look at it – no one can argue with a free $20!

Swagbucks – Free Stuff – Revisited

Swagbucks? I’m a huge fan. I’ve been using this site for a couple of years now – and they keep adding new stuff which is pretty awesome.

My blog “100 Daily Swagbucks” is a passive way for anyone and everyone to easily gain those extra pennies with little to no effort each day. I cover most methods in case some people favor surveys, games, new trials, etc – the choice is yours! I will be updating this very soon! Swagbucks has added some new features which I will be happy to cover.

The latest they’ve added was Swag IQ – Trivia Games played a couple of times a day and today I watched 60 people earn about $250 EACH in SB! No, it’s not cash… But when you can transform that into Visas, Amazon Cards, WalMart, Target, Starbucks, etc… It all adds up to saving you money!

The entire lifetime earnings of my account is approximately $360 – paid on mainly in Amazon Cards because as you’re already aware – I’m a huge advocate of Amazon Prime. 
do checks my links regularly to make sure my trials/referrals are still working!

In the Swag IQ I noticed many questions being asked, so I’ll try to cover them as they pop up. 

When Does The Trivia Begin? 
Your Trivia will begin at the top of the hour of your indicated time.
This is shown by PST or EST.
Game generally begin within 5 minutes of the passing hour.

Can I Change My Answer?
Unfortunately? No. Once you’ve made a selection that’s it.
I would assume this will not change because of the Active Chat.

Can I Rejoin? 
You have once chance to “redeem yourself” and continue on towards the grand prize.
You can only rejoin once – so make those answer count!

How Much Can I Win?
The total pot amount is shown when you log into the app.
At 20,000 Participants Last Quiz – Current Prize is $1,080.
I was in a game of 20,000+ people and the payout was over $2,000.
Figure $100 for every 1,000 Participants (?)

What do I win?
Everything is paid out in SB Dollars.
No, you do not win cash 😦

 

 

FreedomPop $.01 Cent 4G LTE SIM Cards!

Alrighty… I’ve got the deal for you!

There are a few different types of crowds this will benefit – let’s start with a few possibilities of how this penny SIM can help you:

Note: Pay attention after checkout, many times you will be offered a second SIM for

HotSpot Users – If you’ve got an AT&T/GSM Unlocked HotSpot you can pop this SIM in and utilize their data.

Google Voice Users – If you’re not attached to a phone and would like to order a SIM (maybe two..) then you’re solid!

Transfers – If you’re consider transferring providers – FreedomPop uses the AT&T or Sprint Network, but these are for 4G LTE (GSM/AT&T) devices ONLY! If you need to activate a Sprint device you’ll need to check the status on their website. 

I’ve tested the Network myself and you get full LTE Service, here are one of the SIM cards I received.

Sorry for the blurry picture, my camera wasn’t agreeing with me.

One thing to note is you’ll want to make sure you’re on the plan you want. After you activate your SIM you can log into your account and check out your available plan settings. Many times you can call them or “attempt” to cancel/downgrade and BAM – another month for $1!

FreedomPop has excellent reception / data services, but they’re Support isn’t the best. Prepare for patience when dealing with them,  BUT if you’re super nice and courteous and ask for a deal.. They’ll hook you up big time. That’s one thing I can say about this company is since they’re not that huge, they’re hungry to keep their current customers.

Go over and get your penny SIM now! 

Jakemy Screwdriver Kit

This toolkit is amazing. As you know, I was happy with my Synsus Toolkit, but this one definitely beats it for the mere $7 extra. And the orange! I love orange!

I decided on this one because even though I loved my Synsus kit, it lacked the screen separator. I began pricing these out separately and found them anywhere from $4-20. I figured I needed another toolkit anyways (Home, Work, and Travel Bag) I would order this for my Travel Bag.

Main Tool: The handle is a bit thicker than I am used to or prefer, but after just two projects it’s already grown on me. It is light enough to be easily handled and maneuvered when it comes to phones, but is also strong enough to handle Desktop / LCD / TV screws. I don’t recommend using this tool for them, but it does work. This is where the secondary driver (noted below) comes in.

Repair: My first project for today was an iPhone 6 Plus – which as you can see needed a new Power Button Assembly. As soon as the Pentelobes were out I put this separator to use – and it works wonderfully! Even when screens are already broken you want to use special care when attaching your suction cup and definitely be mindful of how much pressure is being used. This tool took the entire headache away. I even tested it on project #2 – an HP Laptop.

Laptops: Now this is what really separates this setup from other electronics kits. There is a hand driver included with Philips/Flat tips – this was great for the laptop. It definitely took any worry out of stripping screws which is another hassle when it comes to these universal kits

I’d have to say the nice additional touch for me was the pump. I was able to use it on the laptop and see some particles fly off. Of course I hit it with my compressed air afterwards, but since we don’t all carry a can of air this is a great piece to have.

If you’re considering getting into electronics repairs OR looking for a totally solid kit – this is the way to go.

My only complaint is the Separator and Opener both feel flimsy (plastic feel, but sturdy) rather than feel like a solid tool. The opener works, but it’s for lighter devices than I had imagined. Aside from these two – everything else is great!

Syntus Precision Magnetic Repair Kit

For the most part I haven’t purchased many kits when it comes to repairs. I’ve been happy with my separate tool kits hanging on my wall – all within reach.

As a traveling tech though, it’s not fun carrying a large tool bag – especially when you’re merely repairing an iPhone, Laptop, or Desktop device!

I was looking for something portable, sexy, and cheap. Sure, there is the $59.99 iFixIt Kit – but I’ll save that order for a future employee when I hand this one down!

Behold – The Syntus 80 -N – 1 Precision Toolkit!

     As an Amazon Prime member, this baby arrived right next to my replacement iPhone 6 Plus Rear Camera. (Review Later)

What I love most is it’s not overly magnetic. I prefer smaller form screwdrivers so the size feels natural, and the material is solid. The metal tools are great for separating parts in Desktops or Laptops, and of course it includes the plastic tools as well for phones or tablets.

I’m not going to over every individual tool – but from the page you can see all of the included tools. I’ve found them all to be very solid! The paint brush is a nice touch when it comes to dusting 🙂

I would definitely order this again, and obviously recommend it to other technicians. Up next will be my review for the Jakemy Screwdriver Set. Since I’m scheduled for repairs – I’ll include some action shots in that review!

 

Brinks Prepaid – Get $20 Instantly

I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about not having funds for free offers from Google Express, Swagbucks, or HP Instant Ink due to not having a credit card. I’m here to save the day again!

   First things first! In order for you to receive your FREE $20 (which is instant after your initial load) you must make a deposit of at least $40! 

Personally I am a fan of having a Pre-Paid Debit Card on the side for those “accessory” purchases. It’s a way for me to keep a separate savings/splurge account so I don’t tap into the finances I truly need. So every check I’ll kick $100, $200, or more to this account which is great because I can keep it if I’m ever in a tight spot.

The plan you’ll initially sign up with is 100% Free To Own with NO MINIMUM BALANCE and NO DIRECT DEPOSIT REQUIREMENTS. You can however earn some nice rewards once it recognizes your spending habits… Which could either be a great or terrible thing!

The way it works is you’ll visit Brinks PrePaid and sign up to have a card mailed to you. Most of my cards arrive within 3-5 days. Your next step is to load your initial $40.

Here’s where it gets tricky. You have multiple options for funding the card – and I’ve witnessed all to work 100%.

  1. Bank Transfer – If you want to completely eliminate costs and maximize your $20 – use this method. It does take longer than manually loading the card, but you avoid $4.95, $3.95, or $1.95 fee.
  2. Credit Card Transfer – Use your Visa or Mastercard to instantly fund $40 to your account. This is by far the fastest and easiest method – but it’ll cost you $1.95 to do the transfer. Not a bad investment for an easy $20!
  3. PayPal Transfer – This is basically the same as a bank transfer. PayPal will verify your account, and once connected you can transfer the money over.
  4. In Person Cash Load – Aside from the Credit Transfer – this is the 2nd fastest way. Once your card arrives you can find a Cash Load Location, but be mindful of the loading fees. They can range anywhere from $1.95 – $4.95 – sometimes a cheaper solution is literally down the street or right around the corner. 

And that’s all there is to it! So what are you waiting for? Get over there and grab that free $20!

Have you seen my other entries? You are guaranteed to find at least one that will benefit you OR save you money!

559 Area LCD Repairs – $60 Limited Time!

As you can see I’ve been getting pretty busy developing some of these new sites.
The previous post speaks about http://www.MyFree10.tk which is my website created focused on referring people to Google Checkout.  $10 To You – $10 To Me! Everyone Wins!

And on to the next project. Valley LCD Repair. I chose a Generic name on purpose to make it easier for the web crawlers to pick my site out. The problem though is I am having issues with my domain so I’m currently looking for a new host. Either one of the following links should take you to the destination:
http://www.ValleyLCDRepair.com
http://www.ValleyLCDRepair.tk

The shop is located in Visalia – but since this is such a hot promotion I am offering it by appointment only! Why? I’m already flooded and backed up on repairs for 3 days – which is great! This allows me to schedule repairs and designate them to a certain part of my day so I can continue to focus on Web Designing, Marketing, and Advertising.

If you’ve got a broken screen of any type – be sure to contact (559) 715-6702 immediately to schedule a quick and easy repair!
