Ways To Save Money While Christmas ShoppingFriday, November 04, 2016
Christmas is seven weeks again. DON'T HURT ME. I know, I know, you don't want to think about it but it's coming up. I'm a big online shopper and also am big on SAVINGS! So here are my tips on how to save money, find the cheapest/inexpensive price for what you're looking for. I've already started my Christmas shopping... that's a tip for you, start early! Spread out the spending so you're not going so over budget.
You earn a percentage of what you buy certain times throughout the year. I get my money sent to PayPal. Usually I just use this as an except to shop more though... ah the cycle continues.
Sign up for an account and then get email alerts once it hits a price you're willing to buy for.
Gift Card Swap / Canada
GCs get you different amounts of SwapPoints, for example, a $100 Esso card would get me 500 SwapPoints. 1,000 SwapPoints = $10 CAD
I've noticed that Christmas has definitely become more about the amount of money you're spending on gifts rather than the thought. You can spend $1000 on me, you can spend $100 on me, I could care less about the amount but the amount of thought put into it really makes a difference. I wish you well in shopping and I hope you guys are able to find a thoughtful gift for whoever you're shopping for. :)
