In today’s day and age, earning while spending is a concept that many are learning. I personally have been using the earn while you spend prophecy for years. After all, getting married, starting a life together, having kids and buying a house require a savvy consumer!
Lavishly live shopping out loud, and learn the incredible way to earn while you spend so that you can maximize your earning potential. It’s time to gain the upper hand as a consumer and earn for all the spending power.
Incredible Way to Earn While You Spend
Sometimes I will forego a shopping trip to one of our warehouse clubs even though I can save serious money buying big because I know how to really earn more while I shop at our local grocery store. This article is not just about how you shop, but where you shop and how to gain maximum earning potential when you are buying gifts.
Reason We Shop
Surely you can identify with one of these reasons for shopping and spending money: Birthdays, holidays, travel, special occasions, teacher gifts, out of town guests, college students and treats!
The Money Saving Secret You Need To Know
Gift cards are magnificent gifting items because, if you have the right retailer in your local area (which many of us do) you can earn points/rewards to use towards gasoline or other purchases. In addition, if you are really savvy, you own credit cards that earn money each time you spend certain amounts, so you charge the amount you spend on gift cards on this card and gain further rewards. Do you see how this is all coming together to earn while you spend?
Our Local Giant Eagle Stores
The haven of all things savings in Pittsburgh is Giant Eagle. If you know Giant Eagle then you know your earning potential. Use your Advantage Card to score fuel perk discounts, then every time you get gasoline, scan your card and get reduced prices on those gas fills (love this as an ice-hockey driving mom).
Right now there are certain gift cards offering this lovely incentive: Earn 20 cents in fuel perks for every $50 you spend on select gift cards at Giant Eagle.
- Earn Credit Card Rewards: By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at office retailers. My personal favorite is Discover, but you might have other credit cards you like, check them out and make them work for your spending power.
