Labor Day Weekend Sales at Old Navy!

By on September 2, 2017

Happy Labor Day Weekend! I hope you all are enjoying this long break. I was sick Friday, had a raspy gross voice and sore throat. Today I felt a lot better and the girls went to a birthday party for their little friend. It was so cute seeing them having so much fun. I will be doing a post on what we’ve been up to lately Tuesday or Wednesday so stay tuned!

If you haven’t seen all the awesome sales going on this weekend then you better look now before they are gone.

Old Navy has Jeans, Dresses and Tees 50% off and everything else is on sale as well. I got this top last week in pink and black and love it in pink. For some reason the black material felt more stiff so I am returning it. No clue why they felt different. I also have this tank top and it is my all time favorite Here are some of my other favorite items that are on sale.

How to Earn Extra Money from your Phone

By on August 7, 2017
If you are like me you are always looking for little ways to save money or bring in money to your household. I like to use this extra money on things like Starbucks or a trip to Target. Here are some apps I use on my phone to earn extra cash, gift cards and freebies.
This post contains affiliate links

1. Inbox Dollars. The name says it all. You get paid to read the emails they send you. You can also earn money through videos, surveys, searches and referrals.  Right when you sign up you get $5.00 (make sure you confirm your email address) and you can earn $10.00 very quickly with all the extra tasks they want you to do when you sign up. I earned $20.00 with in a week through their surveys and videos. The videos are actually really entertaining too so they are easy to let play and watch or listen to. 
2. ShopKicks. This app is super easy to use. You basically open it while shopping and you can see what stores earn you “kicks”. Kicks are points towards gift cards. You can also scan items, buy items and scan your receipt to earn extra kicks. I have earned the most freebies on this one so far. I use this app to earn free Starbucks gift cards but they have a large variety of rewards. 
3. Ebates. This app and website is great to shop through to earn money. If you shop online you can earn money pretty easily you just have to open up their website and click on the store to shop. You earn a percentage of the amount you spend and it goes right into your Ebates account. They can send you a check or transfer the money to your PayPal account. Very simple and straight forward. If you sign up using my referral link you will get $10 too!
4. Swagbucks. This app and website is very similar to Ebates. I like to check out both sites to see which one has the higher percentage back and use that one to shop. Swagbucks is different though because you can earn Swagbucks through more than just shopping. You can complete tasks, check out websites, watch videos, take surveys, download coupons, etc. There is a ton of ways to earn on this one if you don’t want to spend money to make money. Get $3.00 from signing up using my referral link and $2.00 after you spend $25. You can also check out my post on using Swagbucks HERE.

How to Maximize Your Savings While Shopping Online

By on December 7, 2016


So I am probably the last person to discover Swagbucks but I am obsessed. I didn’t realize you could get money back for shopping online. All these years I spent shopping online and getting nothing back really annoys me, ha! 
After discovering Swagbucks I also discovered Cardpool, a place to buy discounted store gift cards. Combine this with Swagbucks and store’s discount codes you can get serious savings from the stores you are shopping at online. Here is how I saved and earned over $60 at Old Navy.
Swagbucks gives you a certain percent back when you shop online through their site. You just open up 
and click shop then pick the store you want to go to. Super easy. It can vary depending on the season. When I went shopping you could earn 5% cash back. I also had a 30% off coupon for signing up for their email list. 
Next I went to Cardpool to see what type of savings they had on Old Navy gift cards. They had an 11% discount on the gift cards, combined that with the 30% off and 5% cash back I was saving and earning a nice little chunk of money I wouldn’t have had without these nice little options.  I ended up buying three $25 gift cards. I got $75 worth of gift cards for $66.75. I then used my 30% off coupon for my order.


Here is how it broke down.
 Total cost (before taxes):  $93.00
 30% Discount:                  $27.90
Shipping Promo:               FREE
Taxes:                              $3.91
Order Total:                      $69.01
Order earned me $30 in Old Navy Cash 
Savings/ Earnings
Savings from Cardpool Gift Card (11%): $7.59
 Savings from Old Navy Promo (30%):     $27.90
Swagbucks 5% back:                                $3.25 
Old Navy Cash:                                    $30
Total Saved/Earned:                                 $68.74
Total Savings: $35.49
Total Earnings: $33.25
You can earn Old Navy cash up until January 26, 2017.
Free shipping is on orders over $50 and they have a lot of sales going on right now so take full advantage of this. The Swagbucks percentage is also high since it is the holidays so take advantage of that as well. And of course check out Cardpool for any stores you plan on shopping at. You will seriously save so much if you can combine it with other promotions. And honestly even if there isn’t a promotion going on it is still worth it to save money at a place you know you will be shopping or dining at.
