I’ve been opting for slow shipping on Amazon, even though I have a Prime account. I do this because they offer $1 rebates on digital products – like movies, music and TV – including the rental of such products.
It’s not a lot of money, but every dollar counts! I invested the dollar in our Prosper account, which is currently returning 6.23% Y/Y.
Some might scoff at the prospect of earning $0.0623 over the course of a year, but I say to that, scoff all you want. I’ll take free money however small an amount it may be. After all, a penny saved is a penny earned, and taking care of the nickels and the dimes means the dollars will take care of themselves.
