I am just an average girl
Simple with technology
As long as something functions well
It doesn’t bother me.
I bought my car ‘cause it was nice
And had a solid name.
And when I choose a laptop
I will try to do the same.
Years ago my boss sent me
To work in a foreign land
And lent me, as a tool to use,
A laptop with the HP brand.
And since that time we have been
Close as close can be,
For because it is so convenient
It goes everywhere with me.
I do not know it’s core processor
Or how much Ram it has.
I do not know what a giga-byte is
Or if it likes long walks and jazz.
I just know that for the last three years
This HP for me has been there
Doing exactly what it promised and more
Pulling internet from thin air.
But even in these wonderful times
A dark cloud looms ahead.
One day it will return to it’s owner
And I feel a sense of dread.
How will I blog my deals
And keep track of things that are free?
Check my readers’ e-mails
Or tweet so merrily?
Not only that, but there was more!
(I could barely stand to look)
If I win, my readers do too
One will get an HP Netbook!
And so I cross my fingers,
hold my breath, and close my eyes-
And hope the judges think this poem
Is worth the grandest prize!

So I think I have pretty much memorized the Black Friday ads. My brain is fried from squinting at tiny print on scanned pictures. I am ready to start the real bargain shopping.
And that’s where you come in. What are you trying to find? What items do you want for the holidays? I want to find you the best deal possible.
So drop me an e-mail, a comment on facebook or a comment on this post and let me know what you are looking for. I need AS MUCH detail as possible- if you just say “we need a TV” that’s not going to work!
And then I will scour the web and the ads to find the best deals. If I get lots of people asking for the same item I will be sure to post it on my blog.
Let the bargain hunting begin!
If you don’t use Swagbucks, you need to check it out! Swagbucks is a search engine, powered by Google, that gives you points for searching the internet. Just use it like you would Google or Bing, but you earn points for seaches. After you have banked enough points, you can trade them in for free items! Plus, they often offer special Swag Codes for additional points as well, so it’s not hard to rack up enough points to redeem often!
Check out my post here on how to maximize your Swagbucks!
With Swagbucks you can earn gift cards (my personal favorite) and other rewards just by searching the internet. IPods, LCD televisions, and IPhones are some of the more fun items in the Swag Store- I personally am getting Amazon $5 gift cards toward a new television. It’s only 45 swag points to get a $5 gift card!
Plus, if you use this link here you can earn 30 Swag Bucks just for signing up!
