Frugal Friday With Marsha 12/28/12

We have almost made it to the end of 2012.  I have several goals that I would like to accomplish in 2013.  Sadly, most of them are the same goals I have every year!  Hopefully this year I can have the stick-to-itive-ness to accomplish them.

Just one goal is to simplify our life.  The clutter around us is getting worse.  Less is more as they say, and it really is.

Today I want to talk about an app for your smartphone or tablet.  It's called ibotta.  I'm really excited about this one.  As a former refunder (you know sending in for lots of refunds and rebates on items, until the rebates became about obsolete), I am excited as this is the easy way to get those refund on products now.

Ibotta gives a fairly large list of items to choose from to buy and then receive cash back on.  You can be paid by paypal, or you can choose a school to donate to.  They have other redemption choices coming soon.  

Here are just a few examples of the products that are currently on my list---Fanta, Frosted Flakes, Huggies Wipes, Neosporin, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Eggos, Robitussin, Keebler cookies, Cheez Its, the list goes on and on.

There are tasks for each product such as taking a poll, learning a fact, looking at a video, reading a recipe, sharing on facebook.  You do the tasks, which then determine how much you earn once you buy the product.

There are many participating retailers such as Target, Walmart, Walgreens, all Kroger affiliated stores and more!

Once you buy the product you take a photo of your receipt with your device, submit the receipt, then you go to your list and scan the UPC of the item(s) that you purchased in that trip.

The customer service is awesome!  You can ask any questions you want or just talk over on their facebook page.   They have a helpdesk page with videos that show you exactly what to do with every aspect of the app.

I have redeemed for $8.75 and $9 in paypal.  Both times I rec'd payment within minutes.

Here is the best deal.  When you refer someone and they sign up, you earn $1....but that's not the best part!!  The person you refer earns $5!!

Here is my link---- 

Sorry to stray away from y usual Friday post, but I am truly excited and loving this earning app and I wanted to pass it along  :)

Now it's your turn to share in the linky this week.

Squidoo Hopping--Goals for 2013

This week let's talk about our goals with squidoo for 2013.
A few years back I made myself a goal of updating or building a new lens daily.  I've not been able to ever keep up with my goal.  This year it's my sincere goal to do so!

Even on my busiest day there are small updates I can do such as adding a flag counter, making a custom bio, checking tags, adding rss feed.  The list goes on and on.  I have a written list on ways to update and there are currently 21 items on my list.

Share one or 2 of your lenses in the linky, plus any blog posts you may have done pertaining to squidoo.  I also hope you will share your squidoo goals for 2013 in the comments section.
