Snowflakes for February!

February 5th, 2013 at 03:49 pm

My snowflakes for February are starting to add up. I have already redeemed $10 worth of Amazon.com gift cards through Swagbucks. I have enough to redeem another $5, and will likely have enough for another $5 AGC very soon. If you followed that math, I'm looking at $20 in Amazon credit for February so far!

I can see I will get paid from Ebates on February 15. It's only $3.28, but I know these small amounts add up big by the end of the year, so I will take it.

I've thought of another way to save small amounts of money. It is our own money, but I would funnel it towards the Christmas Snowflake Fund. My husband often goes to an ATM that charges him $1, occasionally $2, for withdrawal. Our bank, USAA, reimburses us each month, up to $15, for these fees. Luckily he never goes over that limit...thus I do not complain. When these are reimbursed, I will take that amount and add it to our Christmas Fund. This will easily be another $5 per month on average. We usually get a couple pennies of interest at the same time, so I might as well throw those in there too!

Do you have any new sources of snowflakes you would like to share?

    It's scary how our snowflakes are so similar Smile I just got $15 worth of giftcards via SB yesterday and I ordered another one so I will be at $20 as well. I'm ordering Walmart GCs instead this year to off-set my grocery budget. My ebates will be coming on the same day for $28.49!

    I wish I did! No found money in Jan...not so much as a penny! I missed the Bath and Bodyworks freebie a couple of weeks ago, but I do have 5100 MyPoints built up. I am hanging onto those as I am just not sure what I want to get with them.

    I suppose my snowflakes were redeeming the AmEx points to get: $25 Victoria's Secret, $20 Old Navy, and $10 Bath and Body Works gift cards. Do those count?

    @laura, yes those count in my book! Nice job.

    @pnw mom, I'm saving MyPoints up too. I will likely cash in closer to Christmas.
