Gift Certificates

July 20th, 2005 at 08:47 pm

Walked with mom for 45 min and fixed dinner afterwards instead of succuming to fast-food. Smile

Got my June Walgreen's rebates in the mail today. Also got my 401K statement, didn't do so good this last quarter, the overall is up, but it's mostly due to my contributions not increases in the value of the assets. Oh well, hopefully the stock market will rev up the last 6 months like it did last year. And at least it's still a gain, better than a loss.

Finished listening to All About Love by Stephanie Laurens. Romance. Very good book. Another favorite author.

I also finished reading The Hallowed Hunt by Lois McMaster Bujold. Sci Fi. Another very good book by another favorite author.

I found a website that sells Gift Cerficates at a discount of up to 14% off. You don't have to register or sign-up or make monthly payments. The selection changes often but I have seen all of the following on the site, Target, KMart, Barnes and Noble, Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, Penny's, Red Lobster, Outback, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Circuit City, Staples and Amazon to name a few.

Today I bought 4 $25 Gift Cards for Outback for $88 a 12% discount and 4 $25 Gift Cards for KMart for $84 a 16% discount. However, I'm not counting that money as spent yet, I will count it spent when I use the cards. The shipping was free. I prefer the casual buying of cards at a site like this instead of bidding on ebay or joining a club and paying monthly dues.

Here's the site if anyone else is interested.

    I actually like it when stock market stagnates - it means your contribution buys more.

    And to change the subject - love her Vor series.

    I added your link in the discussion area/frugal forum, under "has anyone heard of Main Street Savings". When I clicked on your link, I notice if you refer a friend, you get $$ back ($1 for every $100 ordered). Please go to the discussion area and post your paypal email and/or name so you can get the bonus for anyone who ends up ordering...Thanks
