We needed some home items, so as usual I turned first to one of my regular stores the loyalty program of which I have signed up for. This store gives loyalty rebates back as points with a dollar value when applied to purchases.
After applying all my points, to complete the purchase I would have to spend about $26.00 out of pocket. To make up for this short-fall I went to mygiftcardsplus.com (external link) and bought a $25.00 gift card to that particular retailer, a purchase which I earned 3% back in SwagBucks (external link) points.
It took some extra effort but I was able to buy a few hundred dollars worth of new things at a significant rebate and my total out of pocket expenses were reduced further by stacking rebate programs – SwagBucks on top of the store’s loyalty program.
