Welcome to my blog. This is where I provide family tech tips, reviews and resources for parents and families. Hope you have a nice stay! 



Are you looking for ways to shop smarter?

If you are, I suggest checking out SWAGG, the free mobile app (download here: http://bit.ly/theSWAGGapp) for iPhones and Android mobile devices that lets you buy, send or swap SWAGG GIFTS as well as organize your gift cards.

I decided to download the app and use it during my holiday shopping frenzy and found it to be super useful, helpful and convenient.

One of my favorite features of this new app is that it deals with the issues that many of us have with the accumulation of membership/loyalty cards and gift cards that often take up too much space in our wallets. SWAGG cuts down on the clutter by having us load all gift cards, loyalty card info/points into our iPhone of Andriod mobile device allowing us to conveniently shop from our phones.

My second favorite feature is that this app allows you to never forget another birthday or anniversary by simply allowing us to send a gift card directly from our mobile device.

Also, you can also enter your zip code and get offers that are redeemable at stores in your area.

On top of all the great features this app provides, it also gives back.  SWAGG has partnered with the non-profit organization Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) http://www.standup2cancer.org/ and will donate $1  (up to $125,000) every time the app is downloaded between now and December 31st 2011.

Now if all that wasn’t enough, you can also enter to win a trip (worth $4,000) for two to the Sundance Film Festival -- The Ultimate SWAGG Getaway Sweepstakes http://wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/82357

The lucky winner will get to enjoy:

  • 2 night/3 day stay at Yarrow Hotel in Park City Utah (Jan 21 - Jan 23, 2011)
  • Ground transportation to and from hotel to airport in Park City, Utah
  • Dinner for two at Tao Lounge, including 2 nightclub passes
  • All access to The House of SWAGG Gifting Suite
  • 2 tickets to a movie premiere on Saturday, January 22nd -- movie tbd

Good luck!

If you’ve already downloaded the app, feel free to leave a comment below telling me how you like it.
