Another homeschooling mom enlightened me to SWAGBUCKS some time back. I joined (which gave her some free points) and I have been taking the daily polls, a few surveys and using their search engine. Once in a while I will order something by clicking through their site. I spend maybe 7-10 minutes a day on it. Well, it has paid off.
I just converted my SWAG points into Amazon gift cards-$45 worth. Hopefully I will be able to get a couple more before Christmas, but its a good start. (In fact, I already placed an Amazon order)
I also participate in MYPOINTS and have $30 in Walmart gift cards headed my way.
As pretty much a single income family (my husband works full time, I teach part time as an EMS instructor and work part time during the summer months), little things like $75 worth of gift cards 2 months before Christmas is a nice treat!
If you want more info on either program, let me know by sending me your email address and I will send you a link and an invite.
