Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

Swagbucks, meet You. You, meet Swagbucks.

So...this winter has been a very busy one playing catch up due to our busy fall wedding photography schedule and family matters. So I promise I will be catching everyone up soon on everything. BUT in the meantime, I wanted to share with you about this great search site called Swagbuck's! And here is why...In just 5 short months of knowing about it, I built up over $100 of Amazon.com gift card credit and just cashed them in to buy a new point and shoot digital camera for half price! (And had I gone with a lower-priced model, it would have been free) :)

So, you'll have to pardon the low-res picture from my (older model) iPhone, but hopefully you can see that along with my new pink Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS, I also got a case, a spare battery, battery charger, battery charger for the car, SD card, USB card reader, and some other accessories. So I only ended up paying $150 for $300 worth of camera and accessories. And here is how I did it.

Swagbucks - an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise, including prizes and gift cards. You earn 30 swagbucks (SBs) just for joining, and if you join today with the code "GameTime", you'll earn an extra 20 on top of that.

Here is how you earn SB's:
Daily Poll - earn 1 SB a day just for answering the daily poll
Toolbar Use - earn 1 SB a day just for opening your browser in which the Swagbucks Toolbar has been previously installed
No Obligation Special Offers - earn 1 SB a day just for thumbing through their NOSO's; skip them all if you want and at the end of the 5-6 offer trail, you earn the SB
Trusted Surveys - earn 1 SB a day just for checking to see if you qualify for a survey; you can also earn extra SB's if you do qualify for a survey and complete it
Special Offers - thumb through them every now and then to see what new ones exist; earn big SBs by going through them to sign up for DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, etc.
Shop & Earn - earn lots of SB's just for shopping online and clicking over to your favorite sites through the Swagbucks portal; earn 2 SB's for every $1 spent
Daily Deals - buy your Groupon, Living Social, Mertado daily deal specials through your Swagbucks account to earn SB's on top of the great deal!
Swagbucks TV - earn SBs for watching videos on their site
Games - earn SBs for playing games (similar to Yahoo Games)
Search & Win - earn SB's through using their search engines, like you would Google or Yahoo
Swagbucks Codes - use the Swagbucks Widget (on an iGoogle homepage, for instance) to be notified when a special swagbucks code is out in one of 4 places (SB widget, SB toolbar, SB blog, or SB facebook page)

So, head on over to Swagbucks now by clicking my referral link and signing up! Remember the code "GameTime" to earn your 20 extra SB's. Then get your other friends to sign up with your referral link so you can earn more SB's! And happy earning :)
