This site is not just about making quick cash bonus; I’m also a strong believer in getting the most bang for your buck. I do all my personal shopping on the web as much as possible. I’m always on a lookout for hot deals either for personal use or selling on ebay with coupons to stack on. In doing so, I’m able to use Mr. Rebates to get cash back on top of my 2% Schwab Visa.
You might wonder, “well, don’t you have to go out and spend money sometime at the grocery stores, movies, restaurants, etc?”
The Ebay Method – Up to 50% Cash Back Method:
One of my biggest tools is buying gift cards on ebay using the 15% cash back method via Mr. Rebates and Bing. For example, I bought $100 fandango gift card last week for about $55 on Ebay. Using the Ebay method, I’m able to get another 15% cash back on the $55 for a total saving of over 50%. Whenever I’m going to the movies now, I’m able to save as much as 50% and we all know how expensive movies tickets can be.
I use the same method in buying gift card at all the major stores I frequent such as Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Target, etc. Of course it’s not always going to be 50% off since most Ebayers know you can use the Mr. Rebates/Bing method. My rule of thumb is if I can buy 80 cents on a dollar, then it’s a good buy. At Barnes and Noble, I also have their 10% membership card, hence a saving of 30% each time I buy coffee(I drink a lot of coffee).
If you worry about losing your gift cards, download JunoWallet for your Iphone or Android Phone to store all your gift card information in one place.
The Entertainment Book Method – Up to 50% off
I must have at least 5 entertainment books. Inside the entertainment book, you can save big with their restaurant coupons, plus discounts on shopping, attractions, travel, etc. I personally have many books to save me money on groceries coupons, BOGO Free dinner coupons, etc. I take advantage of the Buy One Get One coupon quite a bit. Using this method, I’m always eating at 50% off whenever I’m with another person.
The Extra Cash Back Method – 3.2% More Cash Back
Join BigCrumbs and buy American Express Gift Card to get another 1.2% cash back on top of your 2% Schwab or Fidelity credit card. The AmEx gift card is for all my spending since it’s on top of whatever I saved from the two methods above. I’ve written extensively on how to do it here.
In conclusion, using the above three methods could save you hundreds in your monthly budget.
