Snowflakes & Back Ordered Boots

October 19th, 2015 at 11:47 am

I received my first $6 referral for YNAB in my PayPal account yesterday. Much faster than the 30 days they indicated. Effectively, YNAB was only $48 rather than the original price of $60. I just need four more people to buy the software under my referral and the software will be free for us.

The Best Buy gift cards we ordered from our Citi rewards arrived on Saturday. The gift cards amount to $200 and I will record them as a snowflake. We almost made our purchase Sunday, but realized we had a 10% off coupon at home that they said might work. It seems the item we want to buy went off sale, raising the price nearly 20%. They will however, price match with Amazon.com, who still has it at the price Best Buy had last week. Sales person wasn't sure if they could combine Price Match with 10% off coupon. I'm going to try though. I also remembered that I chose Electronics Stores for 5% cash back on my US Bank Visa for third quarter. That will amount to around $10 back when I use that credit card for this purchase. Specifically we are buying a sound bar for one of our televisions. It's for my husband's birthday.

Today I ordered the famous L.L. Bean boots for my daughter to tromp around campus with this winter. Those were $99 shipped. But like nearly all of their famous boots they appear to be on back order. Some said January 4th, but this pair said December 4. Hoping they fit and arrive just before the weather turns colder.

Oh, and I'm starting to follow Hip2Save again for the holiday season. I don't usually follow the other months of the year...I find I buy too much stuff I don't need!

Do you follow Hip2Save? Do you have L.L. Bean boots? A sound bar for your television? Let me know if you use my YNAB referral code so I can thank you!

    I bought some LL Bean boots at a garage sale years ago and ended up giving them away because they weren't comfortable. They probably weren't quite the right size. Now it makes me chuckle, to see them so sought after.

    My mom bought me some snow boots for my birthday last year - have no idea what brand they are. Smile It doesn't seem like we're going to be needing snow boots any time soon though. Big Grin

    Yes, I realize she won't need the boots too soon. But when I saw some were back ordered until January, I knew we needed to act now if she was interested in these. She was to be shopping this week for long underwear for those cold football games she may need to attend with the band. We decided a new coat could wait. She has a coat, but will likely need a heavier version for walking across campus on those very cold days.

    We who live in frigid climate prefer to layer clothes as heavy coats tend to restrict movement. Most important are wearing some type of headgear
