Today I was talking to my roommate on how I convinced my mother to join ebates, a cashback website, for her online purchases, when I realized that I should check if petsmart had free delivery and was on ebates. We normally get discounted gift cards from cardpool and then buy our food and litter from persmart. But why am I taking my very limited time and going to petsmart if I don't have to?
I found out that petsmart has free shipping on orders over $49, plus there is an online sale going on which will save me 10% today. So I ordered the cat food and litter to be delivered to my house with the petsmart giftcard which I had purchased at 90% of face value. So I spent $60.88 at pet smart, on a giftcard that only cost $55, plus ebates will give me back $3.04 so really I spent about $52 for a purchase "worth" $61. So, I saved $9 for less work than driving to the store, plus I did not have to waste our time. Because it would have taken much longer to drive and shop than order online. Don't you love when money savings are a time savings as well. Most times I either need to spend a lot of time or money to do what I want, here I saved both. What a good start to weekend!
Is anyone else found a money saving trick this weekend?
