Look for discounted gift cards

  • eBay often has discounted gift cards available as well.  Here is one example: eBay Gift Card
  • Swagbucks has introduced a new site called MyGiftCardsPlus that will give you SBs for buying gift cards
Choose the best method of payment
  • Many credit cards companies offer cash back on purchases, so it may be wise to use them depending on the situation / circumstances
    • One example is the Barclaycard Rewards MasterCard (1% cashback)
  • Consider store credit cards as well — Store Credit Cards That Are Worth It
  • If shopping at Target, use your REDCard to save an extra 5% + Free Shipping (on order $25+)
    • Speaking of shipping, choose “Ship to Store” to save money if that option is available
Once your shopping is done…
  • Open your Ibotta phone app to find additional rebates for anything you bought
    • Keep your receipts! There are a number of apps that will pay you for a photo of your receipts, such as Yaarlo and Receipt Hog.
  • If you buy something and it goes on sale later, Paribus automatically works to get you money back
  • Link your credit card to Acorns to invest spare change automatically into a diversified portfolio
