I just ordered my Lego Advent Calender for free

LEGO® City Advent Calendar 2824
I'm trying to stay ahead of the game this year!  In England, Advent calenders are really popular and I had one every year.  Mind you back then we got the ones with just a message or a picture behind each door.  Then it progressed to chocolate but now there's real fancy ones for the kids.  I love the Lego advent calenders - last year I brought my son one and he loved it!  Every morning before school we'd open it up and he'd piece it together, it was our time together. 

So I went online searching for one.  I just purchased this LEGO® City Advent Calendar 2824on for $33.99.  Its a $1 cheaper than the Lego store and on you get free ship so a huge bonus!  Yes its expensive but I'm afraid I did search around and could not find a better deal!  I just figure these pieces will go into his regular Lego collection.

So how did I get it for free? - well I did some additional home surveys for Pine Cone Research and used up all my codes.  These aren't the typical online surveys - they send you products to test at home and once you complete it you get a $5 or $ code - I accumulated quite a few over time (Pine Cone Research is closed right now for new applications but I'll let you know when they open up again).  Plus I still have my Swag Bucks codes that I'll redeem later for an advent calender for my daughter.  You only need 450 points to score a $5 Amazon ecode - they soon add up.  Unfortunately they do not make a girly Lego advent calender otherwise I'd jump on it straight away.  Last year I got her the Polly Pocket Advent Calendar but I think I might switch it upand get her the My Little Pony Advent Calendar for $19.57.

Pinecone Research doesn't pay with Amazon codes, they pay with a check. I have been a member for 7 years.

I've had at home surveys from Pine Cone Research where they send me products to my home to review and once I've tried them out and complete the survey they email me an gift code ranging form $5 to $10. This is how I got my free advent calender.

For my typical online surveys by Pincone Research I get paid by paypal but you can get paid by check should you choose. Maybe you never got the at home product surveys?
