Free cell phone and free minutes!!

I was so excited about this that I couldn't wait to get it posted! I found a link on my state's Job and Family Services website that said "Get a free cell phone." Intrigued, I clicked on it. Apparently, those who qualify by income can receive a free cell phone and free minutes from SafeLink Wireless. If you are already qualified for HEAP, Medicaid, food stamps, etc., you automatically qualify for the phone program. If you are not on any of these programs, you can still qualify by submitting proof of income. Well, since my family is enrolled in the HEAP program, I filled out a very simple application online and submitted it. Within 10 minutes I received a message that said I had been approved and would receive my phone within 5-10 business days! Please, please, please email this post to anyone you know who could benefit from this program. Most of us are driving crappy cars that break down all the time, now you can have the security of knowing you can call someone for help. What a great way to restore a sense of security to those of us who can't afford cell phones.

MyPoints is a site where you earn points for various activities. You do not actually earn cash, but the points are just as good as cash. There are so many ways to earn that everyone is bound to find something they enjoy. You can earn just by reading emails received from them, you can complete offers, you can earn huge points by shopping through their site, and you can earn by joining other sites that are affiliated with them. They also have an affiliate program, which I have not tried, that pays cash. I personally use my points for emergency gas money since I earn enough for $20 BP gas cards a month. That's $20 I don't have to spend out of my pocket every month. If you're into offers, you could do much better. I typically only read emails. They do not have a referral program, this post is just for your earning enjoyment. If you click on the post title it will take you to their site. Have fun with it!
