    Giveaway: Old El Paso Frozen Entrees for Two Prize Pack

    This post is in partnership with My Blog Spark. I received a package identical to the prize to facilitate this post. Any opinions are my own. Read the full CFO disclosure policy here.

    Old El Paso Frozen Entrees Giveaway

    Old El Paso is making your favorite Mexican dinners easy for weeknights with their new line of frozen entrees for two. There are eight different flavors of fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas and burritos, all available in the freezer aisle. Choose from:

    • Shredded Beef Burritos
    • Chicken Burritos
    • Steak Quesadillas
    • Chicken Quesadillas
    • Shredded Beef Enchiladas
    • Chicken Enchiladas
    • Steak Fajitas
    • Chicken Fajitas

    I tried the Chicken Enchiladas, and was surprised to discover that the heating methods are microwave and oven or just the oven – there’s no microwave only option for “food safety” and optimal texture. I have to say, the texture of the corn tortilla was pretty good – not gummy or rubbery at all, which tends to happen with the microwave. And the enchiladas themselves were also good for a frozen entree, and the portion size was quite generous. Since all you get is the main entree, I do recommend serving it with a salad or vegetable.

    WIN IT!

    Giveaway: $50 Gift Card from Swagbucks!

    Get free gift cards from Swagbucks!

    Have I mentioned lately how much I love Swagbucks? The fundamental concept of Swagbucks is simple: Earn Swag Bucks and redeem them for fabulous prizes. I’ve been a member for over five years now (5!), and I make more money from them every year. So far this year, I’ve made over $1,000 and the vast majority of my Swag Bucks are from my own activities and not from referrals.

    But if you are one of my referrals, I’ve got some great news for you: Starting today through November 29, any one who joined Swagbucks using my referral link who earns at least 50 Swag Bucks in total from any combination of Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer or Discover will be automatically entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card of your choice, courtesy of Swagbucks!

    If you’re new to Swagbucks and would like to enter the giveaway, start by signing up here and use the code CFO70SB for a bonus 70 Swag Bucks to start. To redeem the code, be sure to click on “I have a signup code” when registering. Everyone gets 30 Swag Bucks upon registration, so you’ll have a total of 100 Swag Bucks just for signing up, which puts you well on your way to the 450 Swag Bucks you need to redeem for a $5 Amazon gift card!

    Here are some of the ways you can easily earn Swag Bucks every day:

    Use Swagbucks as your default search engine. I recommend installing their toolbar or extension in your preferred browser. Your searches will be periodically rewarded with Swag Bucks, and even if you did nothing else to earn Swag Bucks, you should be able to accumulate enough for a $5 Amazon gift certificate in a month if you win several times each day. Plus, you get one Swag Buck per day when you open a browser with the toolbar installed.

    Take the Daily Poll and get 1 super easy Swag Buck.

    Peruse the NOSO offers {you can easily decline each one} for 2 Swag Bucks.

    Look through the Special Offers. You can sort by “Free” offers, and there are usually a bunch of 1 Swag Buck offers under the Radium One tab, and sometimes under the other tabs as well.

    Play Games. You get 2 Swag Bucks per 2 games, up to 10 Swag Bucks per day. (Tip: you don’t have to finish each game; just get a feel for how long you have to play before you can click “Give Up” to get credit … though the Games can be very fun!)

    Watch SBTV. There’s a huge selection of videos, and a meter at the top right of the page that will go up at regular intervals. When it gets to 100%, you get 3 Swag Bucks. And the best part is, you can earn up to 150 Swag Bucks per day through SBTV. I like to leave SBTV running in the background as much as possible throughout the day – when I’m cleaning, doing dishes, folding laundry, etc. It’s a bit of a pain, so it’s not for everyone, but it’s a super easy way to rack up Swag Bucks each day.

    Watch SBTV Mobile on an Android or iOS device using the free SBTV app. You get 2 Swag Bucks for every 5 videos, up to 50 Swag Bucks per day. These Swag Bucks are independent of the web-based SBTV, so you can earn an additional 50 Swag Bucks per day through the app.

    Do the Encrave Activities. Most involve watching videos, and the Swag Bucks add up quickly.

    Hit the Daily Goal. You’ll see the Daily Goal in the meter on the left side of the Swagbucks homepage. Reaching the goal earns you a 10% bonus of the goal, plus you’ll earn extra bonuses for hitting the goal on consecutive days. If you’re doing all of the above-mentioned activities, you’ll have no trouble at all hitting the daily goal!

    Finally, keep an eye out for Swag Codes. If I see an active code, I’ll alert you through the CFO Facebook page and CFO Twitter stream. You just enter the code at the top of any Swag Bucks page for easy Swag Bucks.

    I’ll have more tips on earning Swag Bucks and getting FREE gift cards coming up, but in the meantime, be sure to earn those 50 Swag Bucks so you’re entered in the $50 gift card giveaway!

    Disclosure: I get bonus Swag Bucks if you join Swagbucks using my referral link – thank you! Swagbucks will track giveaway entries on their end, so all you have to do is be my referral and earn at least 50 Swag Bucks through Shop, Search, Watch, Play, Answer and/or Discover by Nov. 29, 2013 to be entered. Read Chief Family Officer’s full disclosure policy here.
