If you already use store loyalty cards to save money, you might want to start also using rewards programs. When getting financially fit besides couponing a fun way to free up some of the money is to earn free stuff and free gift cards! I like to set mine aside and use it for shopping bargains and/or buying gifts! My favorite Decembers are when I know that I am done Christmas Shopping and that I did it all for FREE! Well there are tons of sites out there that let you put in your rewards! Here are some that you should consider! I have a place for all of them and then usually like to put them in while getting caught up on TV shows! There are many reward programs out there. Find a place to keep them organized and when you have time enter them. Don’t let them go too long or you will end up never wanting to do them. Some also have a limit on how much you can enter per day/week. So here are the ones that I love using:
Hallmark Rewards (This is not their Crown Rewards): This is NEW! Every 5 cards you buy earn you a $5 gift card right now! This can definitely change but Walmart sells cards for about $0.97! Soooo do you see the savings I see!?!
My Coke Rewards! My husband is a huge Nike fan and they often have had magazine subscriptions and other gift cards! Well we save all our points from our 12 packs and our 20 oz sodas, and even collect them when we see them at our parents house! We cash in several times for free gift cards! Every December they do a promotion where they highly discount their prizes!
Disney Movie Rewards: Okay, if you have movies, go through all the Disney ones and put in all your rewards!
Huggies Enjoy the Ride: Okay do you have a little one in diapers?! OR are you still using wipes! Save those points! They also can earn your great gift cards and more.
Kelloggs: Cereal boxes, Pop Tarts, several other Kelloggs products have these nice little codes inside! I just started collecting them but I know of other bargain groups that used them all the time! Go ahead and check your cabinets and start putting in those rewards!
Shopkick: Shopkick gives you points for walking in stores AND then you redeem them for gift cards!
I LOVE comments! What other programs should I add to this list?! Which ones do you use?
