Thank you Catalunya Tourism and United Airlines for the Wonderful Sweepstakes

Most of you already know but I won the "Fly Me To Barcelona" sweepstakes and am back from my trip as of last week!  I just thought I'd share some pics and let everyone know how the trip was.

I took my husband with me and we did have to pay our own way to Dulles airport which is where the inaugural flight to Barcelona took off from.  But, I was able to get tickets for both of us roundtrip for less than $300.  We flew Spirit Airlines there and Frontier Airlines back.

Day 1 - pretty much all travel.  Flying to DC, then to Barcelona - long day!
Day 2 - We arrived at H10 Metropolitan hotel and it is beautiful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived because we got there at about 11 in the morning so we sat by the pool and I took a much needed nap as I couldn't sleep on the plane.   When we woke up from our naps we had some dinner at the restaurant next to us and then did some site seeing on foot. Below is a pic of our welcome gift and the views from our hotel.

Day 3 - Wine and Cava Tours.  Wonderful day of touring 3 different wineries. 

Day 4 - Barcelona - Hop on Hop Off bus.   We went to a ton of places but my favorite was Palau de la Música.  We ended the day in Sarria which was awesome!  Towards the end of the night my husband picked out an open mic night that he wanted to play at, unfortunately it was not in a good part of town.  So we headed back to a more familiar area and had some dinner and drinks.

I just had to take a picture of this because I haven't seen a phone booth in years!

Day 5 - This day could have been better, we got a late start to the day and were headed to the beach.  Unfortunately there was a fire and the bus had to be re-routed.  We got off at the last stop and had no clue where we were.  My husband went to reach for his phone and realized he left it on the bus!  It took us about 30 minutes or so to get a cab as the area we were in was fairly quiet.  Finally got back to the hotel followed by phone calls to the bus company and then to T-Mobile to wipe and cancel his account.  By the time we got everything taken care of it was just about dinner time.
Day 6 - Traveled back to DC area.  Spent the night at a hotel on credit card points and some dinner and slept!

Day 7  Went to the National Air and Space museum, had lunch, bought my husband a new phone and headed to the airport.

All in all it was a good trip.  There were a lot of things that I wanted to do, but didn't get to do. But sometimes that's how it goes.  Thank you so much Catalunya Tourism, United Airlines and H10 Metropolitan for this trip :)

Swagbucks Earning Proof: Last Month I cashed out $40 in Amazon Gift Cards from Swagbucks

April 2016  Swagbucks Earning Proof Below along with History of how I earned enough points to cash out:

This month I did two special offers.  I had been wanting to try Hello Fresh so I gave that one a go and received 1,000 points which comes out to $10.  I canceled Hello Fresh after the first delivery.  It's not that I didn't like it, I just am more of an adventurous cook.  I actually like the creativity of the cooking process.  

I also signed up for Kinsa Health.  They offer a really cool thermometer that you plug into your phone and take your body temperature.  You fill out a profile for yourself and can enter in your symptoms, take your temp and it keeps a log of each entry.  It cost me $20, but then I earned 2,000 Swagbuck points which is $20, therefore making it free.  

The rest of my points I earned from searching!

Happy Money Making!

A couple of nights ago I was able to cash out Swagbucks again.  

Readers have asked me how I earn my points so quickly and most of them I earn through searching, some through shopping, and a few through referrals.  I do take surveys every now and then but it seems as though I never qualify.  Below is a screen shot showing a snippet of my points history:

Inbox Dollar Payment Proof 2.26.16

Below is my InboxDollars Reward proof of payment:

Ironically almost as soon as I cashed out, my daughter tells me she has a birthday party that weekend and her friend wants Starbucks card - guess where the money went? :)  But this is why I do these Rewards Programs - I was able to buy her friend a present and didn't spend a penny :)  

Most of these rewards were earned via email click thrus and shopping, I only use Swagbucks for search engine rewards as I have found them to be the best when it comes to good results.

Happy Money Making!  Amanda

Another Swagbucks Payment Proof Update 2.26.16

It has been a while since I've update my Swagbucks Earning Proofs - so here it is:

Of course again I chose Amazon and I always cash out as soon as I get to $5 because we use Amazon so much for everything!

I earn most of my "points" through Swagbucks for these two gift cards through searching and shopping online.  I have Swagbucks saved as my default search engine on Chrome which I use on my laptop and phone, so it lmakes it super easy.  Also, I referred my teenager and she is now doing the same thing!  Now, maybe she'll earn her own Starbucks gift cards and stop asking me for money ;)  Some how I doubt that will happen!

Happy Money Making!
