Tip 83: A Rewarding Idea for Black Friday Spending Money

September 2, 2011 | Posted By: Heather Stephens | Categorized in: Shopping
There are 83 days until Black Friday 2011 and we're counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today's Tip:

Reap the rewards for buying groceries and gas:

Yesterday after talking about the hotel miles we cashed in for a wedding, I remembered all the rewards points we have sitting in our bank account that we can use for our holiday shopping. After logging in to see how many points we had, I'm excited to discover we have about $250 to add to our holiday budget.

Many credit cards (and even our debit card) allow shoppers to rack up rewards points that you can trade in for gifts, gift cards, travel, and even cash back. If you're not using one yet, look into it. It might give you some great rewards on the things you buy everyday, anyway.

I try to avoid using my cc but the one that racks up awards or money back AND doesn't expire can help during the holidays! Great Tip:)
