Today’s Swagbucks success story is from Sarah
After graduating from high school 10 years ago, I started my own home business selling decorated cakes. Sales started slow and stayed that way for quite some time, with just a handful of cakes sold each year.
In 2012, I really had the desire to get my name out there more, as well as expand my offerings to all types of baked goods and sweets. I was accepted to our local farmers’ market and was excited to prepare everything for my booth.
One problem was that I intended to sell cheesecakes, cold pies, and cupcakes that needed refrigeration. I started to research refrigerators that would be small enough to transport every week, yet not be a low-quality dorm style that doesn’t maintain cold enough temperatures for food safety.
After finally finding a well-reviewed mini fridge, I checked several different retailers for the best price. Home Depot came out on top and had the added bonus of offering Swagbucks gift cards!
It had been 3 years since I joined Swagbucks, and I had accumulated enough bucks through searches and the daily poll to purchase 4 Home Depot gift cards. It wasn’t enough to cover the entire cost, but I was so happy to have a large chunk subtracted from what I had to pay out of pocket.
My mini refrigerator is still going strong, and I am now in my third season of the farmers’ market. There are several regular customers who come every week just for my cheesecake and mini pies, so it has been an investment well worth it! Thanks, Swagbucks!
