Take It To The Bank (How To Save Money Everytime You Shop!)

I love telling people about my bank. I know that sounds weird, but its true.

Nate and I use his bank called PerkStreet*. It is awesome. Here is the deal, you get 2% cash back on EVERY credit purchase you make with your debit card. And each month there are "power perks" categories, where you get 5% cash back on those purchases (they have been craft stores, clothing stores, gas, and restaurants!). And its a debit card, so you don't have to worry about having a credit card!


Anyway, its is a great way to get some cash back and use it towards something special :-). Nate an I have gotten back almost $300 and we haven't even had it for a year yet - AMAZING.

If you are looking for a way to save some extra bucks, then open up a PerkStreet* account. And beautiful thing is that you can link this account to your traditional bank, and just transfer money as you need it!

Another quick way to save some money is something I mentioned previously, EBATES.com.  If you go through their website and then onto another store to buy something online, you get a percentage back on your purchase (usually between 3- 6%). Think of the savings!

For Example, say you go buy something at Nordstrom for $80.00.
With PerkStreet you get 2% back -  $1.60
With Ebates you get 5% back - $4.00
You just saved 7% or  $5.60. I know its not alot, but it is $5 you can spend on something else. So if you love online shopping - use E- Bates! Plus you get $5 for just signing up!



So get shopping! :-)
