‘Tis The Season, Again! Here We Go.

Ok, so sorry, all.

I really meant to do this earlier, because I was late for the holiday shopping season last year.

Consistency is my other lesser-known name. Which is unfortunate when it comes to stuff like this.

Here we go!

Layering is my self-coined pet-term for what happens when promotions, rebates, points and the universe align.

It takes some practice. I’ve been doing this for 10 years now on one program adding a few others in recent years. I’m not gonna say it is always easy – it takes some brain work and some research.

Truly, though, what’s better than a good deal?

Free. My favorite F-word.

I will tell you with 100% honesty that I consistently earn cash back and points to buy approximately $200.00 worth of Christmas (and self) gifts!

Yes, there is a free Christmas.

No, it won’t be this year for you.

But, perhaps by the early months of 2022, you will have a nice little sum of cash and points to use for necessities. Think home goods, home improvement, a dinner for two.

Set Yourself Up for Success

  1. Create an email address specifically for offers, promotions, & loyalty programs.

Why? Keeps all your offers in one place.

  • No matter which email server you use, I recommend setting up an @gmail account.

Why? Some rewards programs will auto-scan email for online receipts.

If, you opt-in for that option in settings.

  • Move your current loyalty accounts to the new email address.

Why? Keeps your main communication email unclogged.

  • Use the links below to sign-up for programs.

Why? You will receive sign-on offers and bonuses in cash or points!

(PS, transparency: I will, too.)
