Chase Sapphire Card

November 29th, 2013 at 02:36 pm

I received my new card today in the mail. I think a couple of us here signed up for the card which was offering 50,000 bonus points after spending $3000. Well I still have $900 to spend to reach my goal on the card I got from Navy Federal in order to get 60,000 points. I will reach that with no problem so as soon as I cap that out I will start using this card. I will reach that sometime in Feb because I plan to charge my tuition for the class I recently started and the one that starts in Feb. Uncle Sam is footing the bill for school while I'm earning bonus money at the same time, cant beat that!!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving with family and friends, I know I am Smile

A Few More Flakes

November 25th, 2013 at 05:52 pm

Today I stopped by Applebee's to take advantage of their gift card offer. If you buy $50 in gift cards, you get a $10 bonus card. I eat there often so I figured I might as well. I bought 2 $25 cards and I'm thinking of making one a Christmas gift for my daughter's teacher.

Also in the mail today I got $10 off any purchase from Victoria Secret. It's good until 31 Jan but I will see what I can find for close to $10 and give it as a gift as well. So I'm counting those two things as a $20 snowflake. My total is $3243...inching closer and closer to $3400!

Rental Property Snowflakes

November 23rd, 2013 at 10:46 am

Throughout the year I put a specific amount of money aside to pay the property tax on my rental in South Carolina. Well I just got the bill and it is $131 less than what I have saved so I will send in as a snowflake against the mortgage. That brings my total for the 52 Week Snowflake Challenge to $3,218! Let's see if I can end the year with $3400 Smile

$25 iTunes Gift Card for $20

Ebates Friends & Family Sale

November 20th, 2013 at 06:41 pm

For those of us that earn snowflakes by using Ebates, I just wanted to pass along until 12 am PST tonight they will be giving double cash back at alot of stores.(very short time frame) This is the perfect time to get paid for doing your normal online shopping.

For those of you that don't know, Ebates(see sidebar) pays you a certain percent cash back for just going through their site to get to the store you wish to finally shop with. I have never had any major problems with them and when I did have questions, they were answered right away. I figured if they want to give me money for shopping, then I will gladly take it Smile

Goal Reached!!!

November 20th, 2013 at 09:32 am

Over the last couple of weeks Ebay has been very good to me so I was able to transfer $68 from my Paypal account to checking. With this I can now say that I have now reached my 52 Week Snowflake Challenge goal of $3000!!!! Of that, $1378 was for the 52 Money Challenge that I learned about on this site at the beginning of the year. So as of now my snowflake total for the year thus far is $3073 and the year isn't even over. This just goes to show you as many of us already know, small amounts do add up over time!!

It's Snowing this Week

November 7th, 2013 at 02:01 pm

Snowflakes this week so far are $84 from GI bill payment increase, $11 ebay sale, and $5 Kmart giftcard that I posted about yesterday. I have another item listed on ebay but no bidders yet but it's listed until Sunday night so hopefully it will sell!

Great Deal at Kmart

November 6th, 2013 at 11:07 am

I just did the below deal at Kmart for Cottonelle toilet paper. First I bought a $25 Kmart gift card because they are giving u an extra $5 gift card and 2000($2) points if u are a rewards member which I am(it's free to signup). Then I purchased 3 12 pack rolls of tissue for which they are taking $3 off at the register if u are once again a member. On top of that I used 1 coupon I had for .55 cents because they wouldn't allow more than one coupon for the same item. Finally I used the $2 in points that I just mentioned above. My out of pocket cost was $6.92 for 36 rolls of tissue which I used the gift card I just purchased. Are u ready for the cherry on top?? The system kicked out a $3 coupon to be used on your next purchase!! I'm going to go back tomorrow and buy more!! Make sure u are a rewards member before u make your purchases to get the best deal!!


$5 for $10 Starbuck's eGift card

November 6th, 2013 at 05:21 am

Groupon is currently offering this great deal if you like Starbucks. Better hurry because I'm sure they will sell out fast. You may just have to type Starbucks in the search feature for the deal to show for your city. Good luck!


Getting Paid to Shop

November 3rd, 2013 at 10:53 am

A couple days ago I posted about QVC offering a special where if u buy $100 in e-giftcards, they would send u an additional $25 e-giftcard. Well I figured since I shop there anyway, I might as well take advantage of it and get rewarded. I emailed everything to myself, I got both cards within minutes. I will count the $25 as a snowflake once I use it Smile If you're interested, the promotion ends today.

Looks like you have to actually activate the daily goal meter now before it starts tracking for you.
