As I may have mentioned I get my gift cards using Citicard Thank You points. I have to remind myself that I should start stocking up on "giftable" ones.

I am up to $70 on shopping rewards. Our grocery store really cut back on what you get bonus points on. They now send you a list of offers for you for the week and you only get reward points on those items(6-8). Thankfully the drugstore connected to the reward card is still on almost all items.
Another chain drug store has also now offer points and I have $25 with them.

Rose, well done, $70 will make a huge difference. I am happy with my rewards so far. I am hoping that I can use them for extra Christmas items as gifts. I am looking into purchasing supermarket gift cards to be used on later shops or I will just use them to buy groceries and put the extra money away. Anything at this stage is a bonus.

Mid May, the year is certainly moving.
Time to start purchasing or saving to purchase gift cards. I do at least one GC for everyone. Mum for a mani/pedi place, the boys to the hardware store, DS to a supermarket local to him.
Time for me to start putting a little $$$ aside so tht I can buy them when the time is right.

My Panera coffee shop currently has a buy $50 in gift cards, get a $10 card for yourself. This is running thru the end of May. Not sure if it is nationwide or just my local store (a new one that opened earlier this year). If you have Panera lovers on your gift list, may want to look into it.

By shopping the specials and bonuses I now have 120.00 on my Supermarket loyalty card. Hoping to have at least 150.00 by Christmas.

Just hit $150.00. I picked up a few gift cards last week and there were many bonus points so ramped up my savings.
I have $40 on another store loyalty card and will buy a GC with that to use later or to give it to DD for a gift.

Today I can start using my saved up loyalty points. I have $180 to use at one supermarket and $75 to use at another. I can use the money between now and January 31st and what is not used can roll over to next year. I would like to be savvy with how I spend it to get the most benefit.
My Christmas club becomes available today too so will have some extra money to play with there. Need to buy some GC for massages for DD and DSIL and some for a supermarket for DS. I would like to order DH a new bbq but he has not decided on one just yet.
I am looking at an outdoor setting for a shared gift for DH and I so just need to get the best price for all of those things.
