Nice Package

Look how nicely wrapped his package is.
See I pull you in with the sexy man and then WHAM, right into the boring stuff. ;)
I got $250 from cashing in my Bank of America points. I also got a free $10 gift card from My Points. And I bought a $10 Dominos Gift card for $5.
I count the free gift cards in "the money I have gotten for free" category. I try and always get gift cards that I would have purchased anyways. So I see it as money I would have spent thus it was earned money. I have a money earned for free category and what I spent the free money on category! Confused-me too.8-p
So this is what we have gotten for free and from where......................
American Express $25(gift card)
American Express $10 (gift card)
My Points $35 (2 gift cards)
Send Earnings $27.94
Pinecone $72
Toluna $80
Amazon Gift card $125(won)
Bank of America-$250
BP $300
HHGregg Visa cards $469.99
Jewel $40(from buying gift cards)
For a grand total of------$1434.93

I've spent $504.87. If I had paid full price, it would have been $935.33. I'm at 46.02% savings rate on the things that I have purchased.
I'm sure that my savings rate is going to go down once I start shopping. And yay, I'm at that point now!

Why do you keep trying to make me jealous, I wonder? ;-) So far, I've gotten one necklace for free, & I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Oh, & wait. I've gotten $10 in Amazon gift cards from Bing Rewards. Yes!

McVal said...

Typical bait and switch. You're evil!!!

Frances said...

Did you post anything? I could only see the hot guy. :-)

Sonya Ann said...

Hawaii Planner- Nicest compliment! Not trying to make you jealous just trying to be cheap!
Now hurry and gather more! We are getting close to Christmas!

Sonya Ann said...

McVal-I have a mean streak!

Sonya Ann said...

Frances-Haha, you made me laugh!
