Kids grow like weeds. My daughter needed an entire new wardrobe to start back to school. Then she needed everything new at Christmas, and now with the warm weather coming, guess what. She needs all new clothes again. She started the summer last year at an 8. At Christmas she was a 12, and most of those clothes are too small already. That is insane to me. I have never had any of my kids grow that fast.
So knowing that she will need all new clothes for the summer is kind of stressful. It is expensive. So I have to find ways to get her clothes without breaking my budget. I have a plan. From 4/7 until 4/20, I can go shopping at the Ahold brand store (find a store near you), buy select gift cards and get 4times the gas points. That adds up to serious savings all by itself. But there is a way to get even more rewards that I can use to save money on buying clothes.
Using a credit card that offers rewards when it gets used at the grocery store can help this deal even more. Many credit cards give extra rewards when they are used at the grocery store. So use the rewards, whether the rewards are air line miles or cash back, to get the maximum savings.
Start by going grocery shopping. I can get all the great deals that I am used to. I love to shop by the gas rewards anyway, but if I do that during this special gift card promotion, I can get serious gas points. There have been times I have gotten enough gas points that my gas was free!
Then I buy the select gift cards: American Eagle Outfitters, Applebees, Toys R Us, Xbox, Fandango, Google Play, Bass Pro Shops, iTunes, JCPenney, AMC Theaters, Domino’s, Red Robin, Regal Entertainment, GameStop.
When I purchase cards like American Eagle Outfitters and JCPenney,I would have saved money from the gas points and I can save money using the rewards from a credit card. Before I know it, the clothes that I have bought are almost free.
Now is the time to take advantage of this deal. It is only available until April 20th so even if you do not need any of these gift cards right now, buy them during this sale to get the maximum amount of savings and use them later when you need them. Use them for date night or summer time boredom busters or just to have a fun time out. But get the deals before it is over.
You can even use your credit card for extra rewards if you your credit card gives rewards for the gas station. Save big on gas from the gas points, and then when you use the gas points, use the rewards credit card on the gas purchase. Win, Win, Win.
Here is another fun way to get some extra money for the bling you might need. Enter now for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card. That can buy some nice clothes when you are shopping sales.
