I love swagbucks! It’s like they are the lottery and they “loosen their slots” on Fridays. Basically, how Swag Bucks works is you use them for your search engine. They are powered by Google and Sometimes when you search, you randomly will get a message “You’ve Won 7 Swagbucks” or some other amount. Sign up for Swagbucks here.

It takes 450 swags to get a $5 gift card – my brother is a typical guy doing searches for college, and gets 1 $5 gift card per month.  I get much more than that, since you can refer people and get points for referring people.  So refer your friends too!

SWEET: Monday, August 1st follow me on Facebook because I’ll be announcing when swag codes go live (although as per their policy, I can’t link to where to find them) and if you find all the codes, you get a BONUS 50 swags!

MORE Ways to earn swags then just doing your regular daily searches:

Online polls: Don’t forget you can get a Swagbuck every day at online polls. These are one-click easy polls to take.

Share Your Birthday: Enter your birthday and get 50 free swag bucks on your birthday!

Trading in Cell Phones and Video Games: You can earn Swag Bucks for each phone you trade-in up to 3,000 Swag Bucks per phone; there is no limit to how many phones you can recycle.

Finding Swag Codes Sometimes swag codes are released on their Twitter, Facebook, or blog, and I can’t tell you the codes or they’d close my account, but I CAN notify you when they’re released so you can find the code yourself!

Inviting your friends to join For every Swag Buck they win searching the web, you’ll win the same amount! Win up to 1,000 Swag Bucks per referral!

Playing Games Play games for free and you will randomly earn from 1-5 Swag Bucks or you can also buy into tournaments where you risk a small amount of Swag Bucks for the chance to earn a large amount.

Watching videos I haven’t had good luck with this method.

Sending in prize photos and videos 10 Swag Bucks for a photo of you with your prize, 20 swags for a video of you opening your prize! Upload the video to and send the url link of your video to to claim your swags.

Well, this morning Facebook decided to mark my Cuckoo for Coupon Deals facebook page, as well as hundreds of other bloggers pages as “spam”.   For the time being, until I can get it un-marked as spam, I will have a hard time posting deals there for you all to see. However, there is a much better way to follow blogs and never miss a deal!

It’s called Google Reader.  You can follow several blogs easily and be the first to see when deals are out!

I only post the top 5 deals that will go quickly on Facebook each day

I do this because I don’t want to clog up your facebook homepage with too many non-time-relevant deals! But ALL deals are shown ASAP in your Google Reader.

Please watch the quick video above to get you all setup on using google reader.  As a huge bonus and thanks to my readers for sticking with me all these years, I have a giveaway for those of you who subscribe to my site on Google Reader  – 10 readers get Cuckoo for Coupon Deals t-shirts, and one reader gets a $50 Gift Card (I got this from Swagbucks, thanks to all my readers!)

As you can see by previous comments on my Facebook page, several winners of the last t-shirts giveaway LOVE their shirts 🙂  I designed them to be similar to Rock & Republic shirts which are slimming and stylish.

TIP: On the right-hand side of Google Reader there is an Expanded and List view options.  I used List view in the video above!

How to Enter:

1.   Subscribe in a reader to my blog! First sign in to Google, then click the Subscribe in a reader link, then click on the Google button and it will add my blog to your reader!

2.  Come back here and leave a comment saying you subscribed. Make sure in the “Enter Email” field you use your google email address so I can track the subscription!  Your email address will not show up in the comment, it will just be view able to me.

3.  BONUS ENTRY: Post a link to my giveaway as your facebook status and tell your friends about my site! Click on the time stamp of your post, and it will give you the link you can post here to show you did this.

  • Thanks! If you would do us a favor and follow these steps hopefully I’ll get un-marked as spam:
  • 1. Try to post something like this: “// is a great site, check it out”
  • 2. It won’t let you post that, instead you will get an error saying something like we are marked as abusive, etc.
  • 3. Click on the link in the notice that says “let us know” if they are incorrect
  • 4. Fill out the form including our URL and tell them that we aren’t abusive

Giveaway is open to USA & Canada residents only, any age, ends June 21st at midnight EST.  Winners will be announced on my site, on my giveaways google reader feedgiveaways emails (subscribe now)!

Ever heard of Shelf Reliance?

Why Food Storage?
Food prices are expected to rise – dramatically.   Here’s just one article from USA Today. In it, Walmart’s CEO talks about the expected price increases coming.

How long will it last?
As I describe in the video, most Shelf Reliance products that are freeze dried last between 10-30 years.  You can click on Shelf Life as shown in this example picture, towards the bottom of each products individual page you can see the Shelf Life tab. You can see the shelf life unopened and opened.

Buy now when prices are low – and when there’s a natural disaster or economic disaster, you’ll be ready.  These are in sealed #10 cans that can survive floods.

Your $80 value Q Platinum membership will get you the lowest prices available on Food Rotation shelves, Food Storage, and Emergency Preparedness items!

What is the Q Club?
The Q club is a way  of planning your food storage all at once, so you can plan what you need only once, but pay as you can afford it. You can use their Food Storage Calculator to calculate what your family needs. Then set your monthly budget, it could be $20 or $100, whatever you choose.  You setup your own product Q. Shelf Reliance will automatically ship you your food based on the items you said you wanted on the Food Storage Calculator.  You can cancel/change orders at any time.

To get the platinum membership of the Q Club, for a normal customer it costs $80 first year and $20/yr after that.

Luck for you, I am giving you ALL a free lifetime membership to the Q club (full detail here):

  • You get a 3% rebate on all orders
  • You always get the best price even when they shop online.  This can be up to 30% off their sale items!  These prices are not shown to other members.
  • You will get Q-pons monthly
  • You get gifts!
  • For each dollar you spend, you get 1 point that can be used to purchase Shelf Reliance products and merchandise!
  • Q points never expire and you can use them immediately or save them up!
  • You get discounted shipping.
  • Discounts of Food Rotation Shelves!

To get your free membership is easy! Just click on  “click here to enter this giveaway” and leave your email address.  Email address entered can’t be an email that has been used to place orders on before – this giveaway is for new people who are part of my virtual party, or in other words people who read this post and who haven’t attended another Shelf Reliance party.

Once you enter your name and email, you will get an email shortly with your Q Platinum Membership login and password, and the membership will be all setup for you!

BONUS: 5 people who enter will receive FREE Shelf Reliance products to try – $20 value each!

No yearly or monthly fees will be applied because you’re a platinum member! You don’t have to order anything either, you can just get the membership if you want it for a later date.

Only people who fill out the form BEFORE May 2nd at midnight will get the free membership.

If you have any questions email   Giveaway sponsored by Deidre, not Shelf Reliance.

Make sure you visit the other blogger’s participating for a chance to win over $7000.00 in prizes (each blog has their own items to giveaway!):

Wow! Smith’s just launched a great new program – this is a permanent program that starts April 13. But April 13-19th are “bonus days”!  One transaction (of any $$$ amount) is $.20 off per gallon! Normally you’d have to spend $200 to get that much off!

You need 1,000 points to get $1 per gallon (basically spend $1,000 – except during the bonus days!)  So, that is a good deal!

Also, this works at most Shell gas stations in Utah.  View a close participating Smith’s/Shell gas station near you.

Checkout this comment stephanie just left on my site:

(I) was just at Walmart, where they had a package bonus deal; a full size secret deodorant with a travel size clinical deodorant marked down to $2.49. Used the $2.00 secret clinical coupon (it rang up). Got two deodorants for .49. They were at a corner end cap in the razor aisle. Good Luck:)

Let us know if you score this deal too!

UPDATE: Reader Elizabeth left a comment stating the prices on display show $4.92, but ring up at $2.50!

Also, Walmart just started selling Magnum Ice Cream bars, and I don’t know their price, but there’s a $1 off a pack of 3 magnum ice cream bars, and I’m thinking a pack of only 3 ice cream bars shouldn’t be too expensive, so that may be a coupon you’ll want to print!
