Everyone feels the crunch during the holidays. There is special food to buy for big holiday meals. There are all the gifts to buy. There are special decorations. For some people there is also traveling involved. It leaves everyone saying the same thing: There has to be a way to get more for the money I have.
1. Shop Deals: Everyone knows that this time of year is full of deals. No one wants to look for them. But it worth the money. Either sign up for emails from your favorite stores or use the deal site sites to find the best deal on things you want to buy.
2. Use cash back sites: There are loads of sites online that will actually pay you for shopping through them. You get a portion of what you bought as a credit or an actual refund. These sites usually promote deals in addition to the cash back, so it will save you even more.
3. Use promotions from your local stores. For example, starting Black Friday through December 2nd, when you shop at Albertson, you can save a lot of money while getting your holiday shopping done. Buy $100 in select gift cards, and get a $20 coupon for your next shopping trip of $50 or more. Use that coupon towards buying the groceries for you holiday dinner. Participating gift cards include: Applebee’s, iTunes, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Lowes, IHOP and SpaFinder. All of these make a great gift idea for everyone.
4. Take advantage of credit card rewards: Use your favorite credit card that offer rewards to purchase the
gift cards, and you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. (Of course, be sure to pay the balance off so that you do not lose what you saved in credit card interest.) Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery!
Now at Albertsons you can save up to $23 when you buy $100 or more in select gift cards! Here’s how:
Promotional Offer: Now through 12/2, buy $100 or more in select gift cards, and get a $20 coupon good for your next trip! (Note – you have to buy at least $50 in groceries to redeem it.) Participating gift cards include: Applebee’s, iTunes, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Lowes, IHOP and SpaFinder.
Any “variable” gift cards from these brands count too, and you can add any amount you want up to $500!
Credit Card Rewards: By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase gift cards, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery!
Let’s see how it adds up:
$20 off: your next $50 grocery purchase when you purchase $100 in the gift cards noted above
$3 back: If you earn 3% on grocery purchases through your credit card rewards program
