I planned on using my Amazon gift cards that I earned through Swagbucks for my daughter's birthday present. However, I was going to be charged $78 for shipping and decided not to purchase the gift through Amazon. So I had a decision to make; what was I going to use my gift cards on?
While looking through the Black Friday Ads, I came across Sam's Club. Sam's had a wireless printer for $95.78 and I have been wanting a wireless printer for a long time. I just could not convince myself to purchase a new printer when we had one that worked, which we paid $10 for at a yard sale four years ago.
I decided to look on Amazon for this same printer to see what the price was. I was shocked to see this printer cost 10 CENTS more and it qualified for FREE shipping! So for 10 cents more I could purchase this printer and not have to pay anything out of my pocket. I made my purchase on Thanksgiving evening and I received my printer on Tuesday evening; less than a week!
I have not been able to set it up yet and it is actually still in the box but I am hoping to get it up and running today or tomorrow. Yes, I earned this printer through using Swagbucks. Have you signed up today?
