Paid survey - and request for ideas on software!

June 19th, 2006 at 10:04 pm

I got my check today! Yeah! A bit more to go into the challenge. Haven't taken any in awhile.

I have accumulated quite a bit in amazon.com gift cards...over $200 this year from surveys...I was hoping for something fun, like an ionic breeze air cleaner Big Grin but now DH is thinking word processing software. That silly MS Office package! We had the 2000 version, so I hoped we could upgrade for half ($250), but when we tried to load it, turns out IT was an upgrade package, and since the original went out with the old computer, we are starting from scratch.

Used to use word perfect. But we've been using Word/Excel/Powerpoint for years now. Ah...

what does anyone else like, and how do you get the cost down?

Current savings:
2006 $20 challenge: $4786
2006 grocery savings: $6554
