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!

How long have I been a member? According to my Activity History – 7/2016.
I should be closer to 54,000 SB – To be consistent with 100SB/Daily.
I’m only 18,000 Short – Which means my methods WORK!

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.

 

IMG_0042.JPG

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!

Free $10 Google Express Coupon – Potential Wal-Mart Arbitrage / Free Stuff!

Alright so you come across promotions and offers which are too good to be true, so ya skeptics tend to pass them over unless we are presented with a bit of actual Human proof. If you haven’t already – be sure to visit my Referral Page @ http://www.MyFree10.tk !

So what I am presenting today is my methodology to getting 100% FREE PRODUCTS using Google Express Checkout. Yes – You can use this $10 Coupon to any other store, but Wal-Mart seems to have the most practical choices of items under our $4.01 total goal.

Using my Referral Code you will instantly be granted a $10 Google Express Coupon. This can be used at any of the Google Stores, but I’ve found the largest selection to be at Wal-mart.com. And I must be close to a Warehouse because 2 of my orders arrived THE NEXT DAY!

IMG_1957Here was my INITIAL TEST ITEM.

 

Why $4.01?

Your total for the item(s) chosen need to have a TOTAL of $4.01 or LESS after TAX!

This is because Wal-Mart charges $5.99 Shipping for any orders under $35. So you have two choices:
1) Get any item shipped to you for free which totals $4.01 or less
2) Fill your cart with items $35+ and then get FREE SHIPPING + $10 Off your purchase. This is super effective with VIDEO GAMES!

Here’s some more items! 2 / 1 / 18 + 2 / 2 / 18!

 

And here’s how my ordering / coupons look!

Brinks Prepaid Mastercard – Free $20 With SignUp

The Promotion

Brinks Prepaid is still offering their $20 bonus which I’ve covered in a previous article. I’d like to remind everyone that this is a great way to earn some free holiday spending money especially with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s right around the corner!

This article explains how to quickly/easily sign up for a Prepaid Debit card and instantly earn a $20 bonus after loading your first $40.
Note: It costs $2.00 – $3.95 to cash load your card – however I’ll show you methods around it to maximize your profit!

For the month of November: I will send a $5.00 bonus to everyone who successfully receives their $20 bonus. Be sure to sign-up with a valid e-mail as this the address I will request your FlashPay ID from. FlashPay allows you to instantly transfer money between any GreenDot account which is pretty awesome in itself – at no charge!

First you’re going to want to sign up for your Brinks Prepaid Card. You can do so by clicking anywhere you see Brinks Prepaid in this article.

You’ll create an account making a username and secure password. After this is complete you’ll instantly have access to a new account ready with a checking and routing number. This can be used for one of the methods below which will be covered shortly.  A new prepaid card will arrive in your mailbox in about 5-7 days.

Uses:

The card is a great savings/backup account! If you’re already a GreenDot customer you can sign in and transfer money to/from this account.

Payroll and government checks are a great way to fund this card as well.

You have added benefits such as discounts after making purchases, and also an overdraft protection plan which is pretty effective if you have more than one account.

Now to the fun part, loading.

Loading Your Account

The way the referral works is once you load $40 into your Brinks Prepaid account you will receive a $20 bonus. This will end up being only a $16-18 bonus depending on where you load your card if you don’t use the first method mentioned.

Bank Transfer – Free

Since the account is new and you don’t have your card yet – why not link it to an existing account? This will allow you to easily initiate transfer in the future and is a trick to loading your account without those pesky fees. You’ll be instructed on how to link to your account by clicking Move Money -> Bank Transfers from the dashboard.

You’ll verify a deposit or two made into your Brinks Prepaid account and then you can initiate a free transfer of $40 which will arrive in a few days.

Instant Bank Transfer – $1.95

This can be used by using an existing Visa/Mastercard and linking it to your account. A small deposit will be made for verification and then you can go about loading your $40 onto your account. Click Move Money -> Instant Bank Transfers for this option.

Cash Load – $2.00 – $3.95

If you’re unable to load your Brinks Prepaid account with the above options, you’ll be able to visit one of many locations in your area for the deposit. This can be found under Move Money -> Reload Locations. One thing to pay attention here would be the fee amounts.

These range from $2.00 – $3.95. This will help you out by giving you their exact locations and contact information as well.

Other Methods

There are other ways to fund your account, but these three are the simplest and fastest. If you’re unfamiliar with how prepaid cards work this is a great starter card for anyone – especially kids. You can attach additional cards for friends/family to your account or send them your referral code for your bonus!

And that’s all there is to it! Be sure to leave my referral code in the box so we both get our bonus and enjoy your free holiday spending!
