The Cost of Being A Ghostbuster

According to a recent survey of Swagbucks members, over 30% weren’t afraid of no ghosts and would be willing to pursue a career as a Ghostbuster! Pretty surprising though, considering all the positive press Ghostbusting has been getting in preparation for Ghostbusters debut in theaters July 15th. However, the real costs of bustin’ may put it outside of their price range even if you save on movie tickets with a Fandango Gift Card…

Jumpsuit – $29.99 – The most affordable part of Ghostbusting, even if you shelled out a little extra for patches and name tags.

Startup Fees – Approx. $2,000 – Starting a new business is never cheap. The Ghostbusters operate out of The Big Apple, one of America’s most expensive cities.

Custom Hearse – $7,000 – The new Ghostbusters are rolling in style with a custom 1980’s Cadillac Hearse. You’ll have to spend extra for all the bells and whistles.

Firehouse Rental – $910,600 – You can’t be a true Ghostbuster with no HQ! Unfortunately, leasing costs are pretty high in Tribeca, where the building from the 1984 film still stands.

Proton Pack $20,000,000 – Those hefty backpacks worn by the Ghostbusters are basically unlicensed nuclear accelerators, and those do not come cheap. Might be time to take out a small business loan.

Master Containment Unit – $14,000,000,000 – The closest you’ll get to a working model is ITER, an international large-scale science experiment to build a fusion generator. While it’d be strong enough to hold a ghost, it’ll also do quite a number on your bank account.

Proton Wand and Muon Trap – $125,000,000,000,000 – Ignoring the fact that stable antimatter doesn’t exist in our universe, the price of antimatter is $62,500,000,000,000 per gram, and we’re guessing that it’d take more than 2 grams of antimatter to catch and hold a ghost indefinitely.

Total Cost = $125,014,020,919,629.99 Now that’s expensive! I don’t want to slime all of your hopes and dreams but I think it’s safe to say you’re better off sticking with your day job. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop dreaming and what better way to dream of Ghostbusting then enjoying a night at the movies with a Fandango Gift Card

Winning Combination-Swagbucks Coupons and Gift Cards

One thing I like to use my online earnings is to help save money on my budget.  One thing I like to do to help save money and make my money stretch further is combine my Swagbucks, InstaGC or other online site gift cards with coupons from Swagbucks!

Think about it, you get to save money by using your gift cards or PayPal cash AND you get the opportunity to earn more Swagbucks by using coupons while shopping!  Plus you get the automatic savings of the coupon while shopping.  I just went shopping at Walmart and I was able to save $4.25 automatically while using the coupons I printed from Swagbucks plus I get to earn Swagbucks back for using the coupons.

For every coupon that you print and redeem at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens or other place you have the opportunity to earn 10 Swagbucks.  I have printed mine both in color and black/white and they have always been accepted with not issues.  It may not seem like much but if you do a lot of shopping every little bit helps especially when you have a house to feed and clean.

To access coupons on Swagbucks click on shop along the left hand side of the homepage.  On the next page you will see Grocery Coupons as an option along the left hand side.  You will be able to choose from a variety of grocery coupons that also includes a variety of cleaning supplies.

If you do your grocery shopping at Walmart make sure you enter your receipt on the Walmart Savings Catcher.  The Walmart Savings Catcher can be found on the Walmart App or  It compares prices and if a lower price is found you get the money back on a gift card!  Win Win situation!

*Coupons can take up to 12 weeks to credit and unfortunately sometimes you don't get the 10 Swagbucks, but you still get the instant savings when you use them in a store.

InstaGC Information for Newbies!

What it is

InstaGC is a GPT (get-paid-to) website where you can earn gift cards and cash in exchange for watching videos, testing apps, shopping, and completing tasks and surveys. 

How it works

  • Surveys – InstaGC typically lists a fair number of surveys available at any given time. If you attempt some and get disqualified, you will still be awarded one point. This doesn’t sound like much, but daily, this can add up.
  • Complete Crowdflower tasks – rack up points by completing small Crowdflower tasks. Simply follow the instructions, and earn points for doing small things such as data entry, internet research, etc.
  • Offers – download programs and software and earn additional credits.
  • Listen to music - After each 30 minutes of listening, you will receive a code for 3 points. Double-dip by completing other offers on the site while listening!
  • Search the web – use InstaGC’s search engine in place of what you currently use, and earn additional points every day.
  • Partake in trials – sign up for trial offers where you can try out a product or service for a set time period (such as one week). Earn points for your participation.
  • Visit websites - Earn easy points just for visiting different websites from advertisers on the website for short periods of time.
  • Watch videos – Watch short videos and earn additional points.
  • Sign up friends, and earn more – refer your friends and earn 10% of any earnings that your referrals earn (outside of InstaGC tasks as well as bonuses received). Additionally, earn 10 bonus points for each person who signs up and confirms their account and is from Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, or United States.


As the name implies, InstaGC offers gift cards to its members as a reward for their participation. In most Western nations, a wide selection of gift card options is available including ones for use on Groupon, at BestBuy, Starbucks, Amazon, and more. Amazon gift cards are available in USA, Canada, UK, and most European countries. Overall, gift card selections are best in these countries.
As of early 2016, InstaGC added cash as a redemption option. You can now exchange your points for cash payments made via e-check, PayPal, or bank transfer (if you're in the USA). Cash payments carry a small processing fee which is waived for your first monthly cash redemption.
100 points = $1 US/CAD, 160 points = 1 pound, 130 points = 1 Euro, though conversion rates are subject to change. Watch out for “sales” on gift cards where your points can go even further.
Alternatively, you may choose to donate your points balances to great charities including the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

InstaGC is a great choice for fans of gift cards and cash rewards

InstaGC has awarded almost 500,000 gift cards since their inception in 2011. They have over 180,000 Facebook fans and on their Facebook page, as well as Twitter feed, they regularly post “bonus” codes for free points. Adding the ability for members to convert their points into cash payments has made them a competitive GPT website.
Eligibility: InstaGC is open to residents worldwide 18+ and eligible minors who have obtained parental permission.
