This will teach me to talk about plans before enacting them.
I was super excited about exchanging some swagbucks for some Alice.com gift cards. By my calculation, you could get $25 of free household toiletries for only 100 SB. Sounded great; almost too good to be true. Which probably should have tipped me off.
Thanks to a message from FrugalCityDweller, I took a closer look at the Alice gift card redemption rules. Turns out, you can only get one per Swagbucks account. In order to use the credit, you have to supply the code while you're actually signing up for an Alice.com account.
In other words, it's $5 off your first order. Not a bad deal, but certainly not as fabulous as I had thought.
So I apologize to anyone who I got amped up over free household goodies. Know that I, too, am completely bummed by the lack of free drugstore items in my life.
I guess I should have realized that the site wouldn't want people like me taking advantage of multiple gift cards. Then again, Tim's PSP just arrived -- the PSP that was paid for by Swagbuck gift codes! So my faith in Swagbucks partners is, I hope, somewhat understandable.
That said, I'll be sure to check and double-check the fine print from now on, before I go getting our collective hopes up.
Sorry 'bout that.
