Free jewelry! Free jewelry!

I recently learned about a site where you can get free jewelry. All you pay is shipping, which is $6.99 per item. They offer new jewelry every few minutes. (It’s almost addicting to sit and watch the jewelry as it comes out, to see what amazing stuff you can get for free.) I have heard from several people who purchased jewelry from this site, and they have been very pleased with it…. not to mention the free price, lol! Check it out. You might just find the perfect mother’s day gift for yourself or someone else! 🙂 (Click on the ring below to see the free jewelry that is currently available. And then wait a few minutes to see the new stuff that is released!)

Get a free laptop: we did, and you can too! Here's proof!

Get a free laptop: we did, and you can too! Here’s proof!

We recently got a free mini laptop/netbook. Yes, it was completely free. At absolutely no charge to us whatsoever. And you can get one free too!

How did we do it? We saved up our Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks!

In less than 2 months time, we were able to have enough saved up to purchase a shiny new mini laptop/netbook. You can see it here!

If you’re not familiar with Swagbucks, let me briefly explain it to you. It is totally free to sign up.

Swagbucks: You can search the internet and get free gift cards and prizes just for searching online AND for referring your friends. You get 3 free swag bucks just to sign up!

You can get free gift cards from places like Amazon (this is what we get), Target, Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Subway, and Macy’s, just to name a few! You earn “swagbucks” by doing your regular internet searches…. (the same searches you do every day when looking for stuff online) and then redeem them for free gift cards. As an example, 45 swag bucks = $5 Amazon gift card.

The best part is Swagbucks uses Google and for searches…. PLEASE NOTE: You should also know that at this time (April 2009), all searches on Swagbucks are UNFILTERED. Swagbucks has told me they will be implementing a “safe search” / filtered search option soon, but this has not yet occurred. So again, all searches on Swagbucks are UNFILTERED. Keep this in mind when signing up, especially if you have children in your house.

Start getting free money just for searching the web! Sign up for Swagbucks here

Get free diapers AND get paid $10

Get free diapers and get paid $10

I have done a paid diaper trial with my son about 4 times now, and I just got called to do it again! You get about 20 – 140 disposable diapers (or training pants) sent to you FREE in the mail, and then they send you a check for $10 after you complete a quick phone survey.

NOTE: ARQUEST NO LONGER DOES FREE DIAPER STUDIES! Check out Mysurvey &Ipsos i-say for free diaper studies! The name of the company is Arquest, and they are looking for moms of children still wearing diapers. (Sometimes they have trials with disposable training pants/pull ups as well.) If you have a child in diapers/pull ups and want to leave your name to be contacted when they have more openings, call:


  • GIRLS: 1-888-342-7372 ext. 646
  • BOYS: 1-888-342-7372 ext. 634

You can also press 9 for “diaper study” when you call the above number. It is a recorded message.


You will need to leave your name, your phone number, your child’s gender and diaper size. They will call you when they have an opening. (Be patient, it can take 4 – 8 weeks to be called the first time! But sometimes they will call you right back, the same day!)

I do the paid diaper trials about once a month. They send you FREE diapers, along with a survey to fill out. About a week later, they call you on the phone and you give them your survey answers. It takes about 2 minutes to tell them the survey answers on the phone. I’ve gotten to try all different kinds of brands of diapers on my son this way, plus earn $10 each time! It’s awesome.


***Note: I have also done paid diaper trials through MySurvey

***Quick note for moms: Ipsos Survey Panel is looking for moms with babies
