Goodbye 2013, I'm can't say I'm going to miss ya!

I must say that even though I'm a little sad to see 2013 go, I'm not going to miss it.

Not only, did I injure both of my knees, burn out two PC's, 2013 was also horrible in the winning department.  The later was more my fault than anything, I took most of the year off.  Heres a final rundown of my online earnings from this past year. 

Swagbucks- $756
InstaGC- $1322 (10 months)
Pinecone research- $81
Zoombucks- $27 (7 months)
Gift Hulk-$5 
OLS(giveaways)- $940
Plus over $800 worth of rewards/freebies from Misc sources.

For a Grand total of $3,931

Hopefully 2014 will be much better.  I am going to post my monthly totals here in hopes of keeping myself motivated. What are you doing to stay motivated?

Save on Wow Game time by playing for free!

"Earn your way to  "free WoW game time" without getting up from your computer!"

Even though World of Warcraft may be one of the cheaper forms of entertainment out there, it's still spending pennies where you really don't need to. It doesn't have to be that way though, as you can now legitimately play WoW 100% free? Sound to good to be true? Thanks to InstaGC it isn't!
If your wondering what InstaGC is, you probably haven't looked around this site all that much but thats cool.. I'll forgive you.  InstaGC is a GPT site (and in my opinion one of the best), where you can earn points for completing tasks, taking surveys, watching videos, listening to the radio and much more! You then exchange those points for gift cards instantly (hence the name). They have many gift card options to choose from such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon, plus many different gaming gift cards including  WoW. 
I have been a member for almost 8 months now and have earned many free e-gift cards and have even received a few checks in the mail. If you'd like to see proof with your own eyes feel free to take a peek at a post that I wrote earlier in the year that includes screenshots. Or, you could always just give it a try yourself, What do you have to lose?  Click the image below to get started!

InstaGC - Extremely easy way to earn Gift Cards fast.... and cash out instantly!

Over 100 gift cards to choose from!

A couple months ago I told you about a site that I had just found called InstaGC (previous post). I have now been a member for a few months and can honestly say that this is by far my favorite site.

When I first signed up, I was just hoping to add a few Amazon gift codes to my account so I could get a head start on my Christmas fund.. Not only have I done that, I have been able to pay my cellphone bill with AMEX gift codes, subscribe to Hulu plus for 3 months. order Domino's pizza a few times, I even cashed in a few checks to pay for my internet and cable bill. Right now, I am saving up for another $50 Amazon code and am over half way there! Up Next a free NetFlix subscription!

Earning money online with ZoomBucks

If you are looking for an easy way to make a few extra bucks, ZoomBucks may just be the site for you.

ZoomBucks, not to be confused with SwagBucks (although quite similar)is just one of many GPT sites popping up all over the internet. Like the other sites, you earn virtual currency by doing certain tasks online. Such as, searching the web, entering surveys, watching ads or playing games(etc.) Once you get enough points you can cash in for awesome prizes like a Kindle fire, iPad 2 or a gift card to your choice of dozen's of retailers.

What Makes ZoomBucks unique

ZoomBucks clearly isn't all that original, the name alone is a rip on another popular site. However, it
has a few unique features that sets is apart from the rest.

  • zdaily - a online portal/dashboard that has a chance to award points.
  • $3 Amazon gift cards (faster to cash out) 
  • Sharing video- earn one point per day by sharing any video to facebook 
  • Spin Wheel- Earn free spins by completing certain offers Pick number contest- They have 4 free contest, you can enter per day.
My Experience.

To be completely honest, I do not have much experience with ZoomBucks. I just joined at the beginning of this month and haven't had much time to invest. And that leads me to why I decided to write this review anyway... Which is because,  with a few seconds here and there ...I have manged to cash in not once but twice!

Please consider using my ZoomBucks referral link to sign up, and we can earn together!

Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge review

I received the Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge shampoo, conditioner and 1 minute treatment from Bzzagent  a couple weeks ago.  In some ways, I really love it and others not so much.


The shampoo is kinda neat because it has these little encapsulated beads of superfruits goji berry, passion fruit, and kiwi. 

The conditioner, is also infused with superfruits of goji berry, passion fruit and kiwi,that suppose to replenish the moisture in your hair without all of the heaviness. 

The 1-Minute Moisture-Plenish Treatment is also infused with the same superfruits 

My experience 
I have been using all three of these products exclusively for a week and a half and I love how wonderful it makes my hair smell and my hair seems softer. But... It doesn't seem to feel all that moisturized, my scalp actually feels dryer than normal.   The little beads in the shampoo are a little weird at first, almost like pebbles or something until you start messaging it in and there isn't really anything special about the conditioner or the one minute treatment. 

My verdict
I wouldn't replace my regular products with them but wouldn't be opposed to using them again either.

Disclosure: I received free products for participating in this Bzzagent campaign. The products  were for my own personal use. I was not required to post a positive review or review of any kind in exchange for the product.
