Welcome back to another bright moment in hoarding history as we leave Swagbucks for a day and we focus instead, on an entire community that revolves around these small transactions. It is here that I learned about this little side hobby and I bestow unto you the great knowledge base that is /r/beermoney.
A big part of earning Swag Bucks (SBs), is that you can do it as passively or as aggressively as you like. Regardless of your approach, you will accumulate actual money over time and that means you can buy that bucket of live lady bugs you have been wanting since you were a little girl. Some of the more passive ways to earn SBs is to find things you only have to click once, and in turn, you get one SB.
So what kinds of activities are offered that I can just click at from time to time?
So, do you want to make a quick buck doing something that requires little effort? Head over to Swag Bucks and peruse the Watch section of the site. When you enter this area, you will be introduced to the service and once you scroll down you will see many categories like Editor’s Picks, TV and Film, Recipes. Comedy, Health and many other topics. The titles always change and the videos are constantly changing as well. Why would you do such a thing? Well…
Guys, for the last several months now I have been taking part in the shenanigans introduced to me by the subreddit (A subreddit is just a special forum on the website Reddit.) /r/beermoney. My first stop in this interesting little adventure of doing tasks for Chinese slave wages has led me to a beautiful place called Swagbucks. This site is lauded as the ultimate “beer money” website because it has great returns for little effort. Some other sites offer little pay for major effort, and once you take this adventure, you will see just what I mean.
A while back I mentioned that my wife is a creature of convenience, and at times, that convenience can sometimes turn inconvenient. She really has a lot of great ideas, and I generally back her up. I did this time with the Summer Infant Foldaway Baby Bath the SIFBB for short. When we purchased the SIFBB the ability to fold and put it away was awesome. That was it. We didn’t know what else to look for in a baby tub.
My wife is one of those folks who wants to believe so badly in sterilization. A byproduct of this desire to be free of germs is her interest in products that “simplify” the process of cleansing things. In the case of this discussion, I am talking about the sterilization of baby bottles.
I knew nothing of baby bottles and the aggravation they would bring to my household as far as cleaning them goes. When we went to Florida, we had to wash these things by hand and at home, I toss them in my dishwasher. There is, however, a belief held by some women, that you have to sterilize these bottles every time you clean them. There are however, those who say sterilization is only needed every 30 days or so. There are also those who say sterilize only once – right out of the package as the instructions direct, and never again. Back to the simplification…
Do you love really vulgar, hyperbolic explanations of things? If you want a good chuckle, and you aren’t easily upset by adult language, visit Extreme Advertisements. What started out as a series of memes on 4Chan, now has its very own website. What makes these ads so funny? Well, the overuse of strong language is one, but the focus on such mundane products is another. I can’t write much about this site, just click the link and give it a visit.
Believe it or not, some of the best written humor is found not on a comedy website, but instead, on the monolithic online department store, Amazon. That humor is found in the review section for certain products and it seems the more mundane an item, the funnier the review. For Example:
This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.
I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.
Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.
I can’t get the Sharper Image website to even acknowledge these Black Buetooth Headphones I own exist. I have tried everything to find them there, but there is no model number, no unique name or a product ID. Perhaps, after some tech savvy nerd sees this article, they may link this thing in a comment, but I doubt it.
This should be a red flag to you, the consumer, that if you see these:
You ever wonder to yourself, “Man, I love my phone, but the speakers are shit!” and you went over to best buy and realized to get a nice wireless speaker, you may have to drop more than $100.00 for something with quality sound and range? (Let’s face it, wired is out unless you are jacking into something that will render you hard-of-hearing immediately after that Katy Perry song is over).
Dr. Dre has you covered, but you have to pay those chronic prices for his products and that highly symmetrical JamBox is running over $100.00. What options do you have? Those no-name Chinese brand speakers that cost $15.00 at first seem great, but then you listen to them and realize your phone is actually not bad after all. Where are the options?
