For many years now, I have belonged to MyPoints (www.mypoints.com), which is a site where you can earn points for shopping on-line, as well as for reading email advertisements. Over the years, I have earned many gift certificates for shopping for items I would have bought anyway.
So, the point here is that I recently earned a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.com and went shopping for some items I needed in school. I found several puzzles that worked on spatial skills and a set of math blocks that I need, as well as a few math books. Unfortunately, the total came to over $50. Darn.
So, I put everything on hold to think on my purchases a while.
Then I paid my credit card bill and realized that I earned reward points on that card! What is really cool is that when I purchase items on-line through MyPoints, and use this credit card, I earn reward points through two programs!! Yay!
So, I redeemed some points and got another $50 Amazon gift certificate.
Today, I went back to Amazon and reworked my shopping cart. My puzzles, books and blocks should be arriving soon! Yay!
