I love to use Swag Bucks to pay for my Christmas gift giving. It is a great way to save out of my gift giving budget.
So how did we get the Death Star for FREE? Two years ago my son asked for the Death Star for Christmas. I knew that was something that we could NEVER be able to afford as it would take our whole gift giving budget so I decided to think outside of the box and see if there was a way I could earn it for him for free. I started saving my Swag Bucks and after a year of saving I was able to cash them in for $400 in Amazon.com bucks! In turn I placed the Death Star in my Amazon.com shopping cart and got it for FREE.
Now, I know some of you are thinking that this was an over the top gift and yes, it is. However, I knew this was not going something my son would enjoy but my husband would too! In the end it is the best gift I have ever (earned for free). It provided my son and husband an amazing bonding experience. They actually tracked their time and it took 27 hours to build the Death Star together. It is something that they will treasure and always remember. I think the Death Star is something that Peyton will be able to pass down to his kids!
I suggest banking your Swag Bucks and treating it as a Christmas club account. Redeem your Swag Bucks in December for Christmas gifts for FREE! Another way to Stockpile for the Holiday’s!
