Win 1 of 2 $75 Gift Cards for Shoppers Drugmart

WinJunkie has put up its next Flash Contest and this time its worth $75 to be spent at Shoppers Drugmart.
I'm forever at that store since it is just a 10 minute walk from my house, you can find some great sales there (lately it is where I have picked up some super cheap Motrin, L'Oreal shampoo, Lady Speedstick Deodorant for .99-1.99 a piece with coupons)

So go win some money to spend there!

PS- The Motrin is still on sale today. Bottle of 16 for $3.99 and if you use the $3 coupon that is hanging right beside them, then BAM!, .99 Motrin!

Superpoints Bonus Invite

I haven't shared one of these in awhile. Actually I don't think I have received one to share in a few weeks but here you go.

Couples Front Yard Kitchen Garden Targeted

Im just taking a quick break from making banana muffins/bread to share this news article with everyone.

This couple has opted to have a beautiful *AND* functional garden on their front lawn (that they share with the neighbourhood) instead of having either dead grass like the rest of us or an over-fertilized, not-so-eco-friendly green carpet of grass. And they are being told to remove it.

Superpoints and Swagbucks Redemptions & Invites

Ive been doing pretty good with Swagbucks and Superpoints recently. Sure I could be doing better with my own referrals collecting money in my network but I haven't got any yet :P

I was going to redeem my points last weekend but I forgot, so lets take a look at what I claimed in the last 24 hours between the two:

Superpoints Redemption July 15 2012

Swagbucks Redemption July 15/16 2012

That will put my giftcard balance at about $55 (I had $35-ish on but spent it on a new mouse) So, aiming low and say I only get $15 a month from the sites.....Ill have around $145 to spend online for christmas. Yay! <3 free money.

Want to join me?

Im going to direct you over to his page rather than re-post it here only because alongside the post he is having another giveaway. This one is for Canadians ONLY since it is an envie with $20 worth of coupons in it, so go on and give it a read and enter the contest before he draws a winner tomorrow.
