Sold Airline Drink Coupons to Buy Books

October 18th, 2017 at 06:56 pm

I sold some airline drink coupons that expire at the end of the year on eBay. We aren't going to be flying before the end of the year. If something changes we can forgo an adult beverage anyway. In my entire life I've only had one on an airplane. I used the funds earned to buy a used book that my daughter's want for Christmas. Zero out of pocket for that one.

I also used $35 worth of Amazon gift cards, earned on Swagbucks two purchase two other books the girls want for Christmas. They want this series of 12 books that cost $20 each brand new! Amazon does have them discounted, and gift cards earned make them zero out of pocket!

I found a fourth book today at the used book store. It was new, but I had a $13.70 credit, so it only cost me $7+ out of pocket. This present is working out to cost very little!

I'm not sure if I will get all 12 books, but I'll do my best. I figure they are likely to get Christmas money from relatives and can buy them if they want to add to the collection. Amazon can have them arrive in two days. I also think Amazon has been known to have a special in late November for $10 off a $25 purchase of books. So that would be helpful also.

Do you drink alcohol on airplane rides? Have you started Christmas shopping?

    I always drink alcohol on airplane rides, unless it's an early morning flight! Good way to start a vacation! Yes, I've started Christmas shopping...a gift for MIL, a gift for a friend, a gift for DS1 and some plans for others. I like to shop early and have everything wrapped! We also talked to in laws about toning it down with gifts for the boys, but it's a struggle. Why is quantity so important?

    My husband drinks on airplanes, but it's too dehydrating for me. I'll happily slip the free mini bottles of wine from intl flights into my carry-on. As many as I can get! When DH and I were dating and regulars on BA, I made friends with a flight attendant who always got me the best extras.
