I am all about working the system to get free stuff. I do it with cash back or rewards on credit cards. By using sites like ebates for online purchases. Doing online surveys with rewards. And by signing up for store loyalty programs. At first glance, you might not think that the last one gives you much except updates and perhaps coupons. But think again. If you connect with the right businesses, one month a year you’ll find yourself with free money to spend.
They come during your birthday month–vouchers good for a certain amount at that store with no minimum purchase requirements. And since for me those arrive in February, the clearance racks offer a vast array of choices to assure I will get out of there spending little or nothing above my free money. Lest you think these are places you wouldn’t want to shop, let me share the freebies I’ve been enjoying:
- $10 at Godiva chocolate
- $10 at Kohl’s
- $10 at Black & White
- $10 at World Market
- $20 at Vera Bradley
- a free drink at Starbucks
- a free entree at Applebee’s
Add those up and I’ve had about $75 to spend! It’s been a blast!
So now I want to know: do you have any favorite freebie’s we should know about?
