The good news is Den won $125 at a golf tournament. He handed the money over without question. Bless him and his straight swing.
So here is the tally................
$5 free check from magazines.com
$84 Pinecone research(surveys)
$75 Energy Plus(electricity rebate)
$160 Jewel(bonus for buying gift cards)
$13.20 Bank of America Add it up(Like Mr.Rebates/My Points)
$15 AutoZone rebate/visa card
$5 Amazon E-card from Recycle Bank
$8.40 Star Savings(Like My Points/Mr. Rebates)
$125 Golf $$$$$$ Den won
$706.65 for Christmas 2013.
Now for a short story and the question. I'm a Swagbucks lover. I have been holding my points for sometime. I decided this year instead of sending some of the family members actual gifts, I was just going to include a Restaurant.com gift card in their Christmas cards and be done with it. I really am working towards making the holidays less stressful. Round of applause for me.
A $25 restaurant.com gift card usually goes for $10 but you can get a $25 restaurant.com e-card(I will just print it out) for 400 points. I figure that I will need about 15ish gift cards/e-cards. I have 4 on the way. Now for the question(bet you thought that I would never get to it!), I think this should count as money on my little tally up above but I have no idea how to come to a fair price. It isn't a real gift card. It's more of a discount code really. But it is subtracting something from my gift list. Any ideas because I know you have nothing better to do than ponder this stupid question!
