Bing Rewards

Have you heard of Bing Rewards? The Bing search engine has a rewards program that gives you reward credits for simply searching the web. You can redeem the points you earn for prizes like Amazon gift cards, popular retailer gift cards, and gas cards. You can also use points for sweepstakes entries or donate them to charitable causes.

Signing up takes less than two minutes -- you can register with a Microsoft account or your Facebook account. Once you sign up, sign in and use Bing as your search engine. You'll earn one credit for every two Bing searches made on your PC (up to 15 credits per day). Earn one credit for every two Bing searches made on a mobile device (up to 10 credits per day.)

I signed up last night, and I'm already up to 60 points. One of the lowest-level prizes, a $3 Amazon gift card, is 340 credits. I should be able to grab that within the next few days! When you're logged in, Bing shows your current point total in the upper right corner of the screen.

Here are some screenshots to help you get started with Bing Rewards:

Disney On-the-Road Social Media Moms Celebration 2014: Chicago

Disclosure: I participated in the Disney On-The-Road Social Media Moms conference. This was a free conference, and I have not been compensated for writing about the conference. However, I did receive a fun bag of Disney swag and promotional materials at the event.

Yesterday, I attended a blogger conference specifically aimed at Disney fans: Disney On-The-Road Social Media Moms Celebration! For the past five years, Disney has held an annual blogger conference at one of the Disney resorts, and throughout the year, they take a mini version of the conference around the country too -- hence, the "On-The-Road" moniker.

As a Disney lover and a blogger, I've always wanted to attend one of the Disney Social Media Moms conferences. Admission is by invitation only, and each year, bloggers who love and write about Disney cross their fingers and hope for an invitation. I was very excited to receive an invitation to this year's Chicago conference!

One of my dear friends just got back from Walt Disney World, so I already had Disney on the brain before arriving at the conference -- I've been looking at her vacation photos for the past week and dreaming of Disney. And, last summer around this time, we were vacationing at Disneyland in Anaheim. (You can read that trip report here.) Our family's been discussing another Walt Disney World trip for 2015 or 2016, but spending a day with Disney made me want to head back sooner than later.


Disney dreaming? Take advantage of these special offers!

Dreaming of a Disney vacation? Here are some tools to help you plan.

First, sign up to get the latest news and special offers from the Walt Disney family of companies. I have found that signing up for their mailing lists is an effective way to receive special resort offers, both via email and postal mail, for resort hotel discounts.


Then, request a FREE set of customized Disney maps! Your kids will love these -- mine did! You can customize a map poster for each park showing your family's favorite rides and attractions, and the maps will arrive via postal mail. Ours came with stickers so the kids could further customize their maps and hang them in their rooms.

If Disney Cruise plans are in your future, you can request a FREE Disney Cruise Line Vacation Planning DVD too!

Lastly, if you have young children at home, they may enjoy this offer from the Disney's Wonderful World of Reading book club. Get four Disney books for just .99 each, plus FREE shipping! You'll also receive a free Disney activity book with your purchase.

You can also choose from 20 bonus books at just $2.49 each.

New Super-Couponing Tips column: "Tales of shrinkage from the other side"

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Tales of shrinkage from the other side." Here's an excerpt:


"I like the downsizing of products. Ironically, I have three kids, two of whom are teens and all of which are taller than me *sigh*. Because I tend to cook many small batches of multiple items, instead of really big batches of one or two things, I don’t need warehouse-sized packs of perishables..."
