Today’s Swagbucks success story is from Katie:
My husband, Nick, is a full-time PhD student and a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the university where he is pursuing his degree. At the age of 25, he is pursuing his dream of becoming a college professor, and for that, I’m very proud!
He is a full-time student in addition to teaching at the university part-time as a Graduate Teaching Assistant during the regular school year (it pays for tuition and provides a cost of living stipend — yippie!) and working as a lecturer in the summer. I work full-time and am also a graduate student. To sum it up, we’re both very busy and very frugal!
I am an avid December212012.info follower, and so when I started noticing all of the posts and information about people paying for all kinds of things via Swagbucks, I decided to join the Swabucks club! I took surveys, watched movies, used the search tool bar, and took advantage of special offers to earn Amazon gift cards to pay for all kinds of things.
My observant husband noticed all the wonderful gift cards I was earning, and he wanted to join in on the fun. So he did!
Just three short months ago, my student/teacher hubby joined Swagbucks with the goal of earning enough Amazon gift cards to purchase a brand-new, genuine leather messenger bag. He was done with backpacks and wanted something more professional. He was also looking for a high-quality bag that would last as long as possible.
He found a great genuine leather messenger bag on Amazon that got rave reviews, but it came with a price tag of $129.99. He made it his goal to pay for the messenger bag by the time school started back up in the fall.
And he did it! Nick cashed in his Swagbucks to purchase this fabulous messenger bag, and I couldn’t be more proud of my intelligent, hard-working, FRUGAL hubby!
This year, my hubby will be attending school in style… with a great new genuine leather messenger bag all thanks to Swagbucks!
