Got My Free Money ;)

About approximately a month ago I posted about keeping an eye around for the free money you can hoard. My credit union offered a scheme to its customers last month in which customers would get $50 Gift Card if they have a checking account with the credit union and part of their paycheck direct-deposited into it. I wasted no time, did what they required and called up few days back asking for my Gift Card (yeah you need to bug them sometimes, I don't care, it's $50 eventually ;) ). And today, sure enough, I got my beautiful $50 Gift Card :) bingooooooooooooo ...

What Am I Gonna Do With It?

I haven't thought about it yet, but for the most part Groceries! My Online Survey money and Online Savings Accounts interests already take-off some of my bills, if I keep getting such gifts a little more frequently, I 'd love it more! ;)

Have you recently got any such gift cards? If so, where did you participate or what did you have to do? Leave a comment here, sharing your story may get an opportunity for someone else.

I Win, I Win, I Win ..... ;)

I had posted twice about BlogUpp!'s cool ways of free & no-hassle blog promotions. BlogUpp! had started a competition a month ago where readers were invited to suggest new features that might make the widget more useful. Today BlogUpp! declared three winners and YES, sure enough, I was among the three lucky ones :)

Now that I have been declared among the few victors, let me also briefly mention the prize-winning suggestion. "BlogUpp! currently displays number of impressions a participating blog received and hosted in its stats section. My suggestion was to somehow also include the information about which of the posts attracted most impressions so far." In addition to it I suggested five other idea too but those were, correctly, deemed either redundant, unfair or trivial.

I spent this past long Memorial-Day weekend with my close friends on our trip to Albany NY and Boston MA, and as auspicious it could be, I bagged this BlogUpp! contest win and a logo for Let's Be Curious plus some of my articles also appeared in blog carnivals
. I have started to realize lately that this is one thing I enjoy most and feel inspired to do about when I am not at my work. Thanks for stopping by and it will definitely be a pleasure knowing from you about any smallest advise you might have about my blog. Hope to see you around ;)
