Free Platinum 7X Vodka After Rebate

There’s currently a stack of rebates to get a free 750 ml bottle of Platinum 7X Vodka at Kroger Affiliates.

Inventory listing from Kroger for Platinum 7X Extra Smooth Vodka 750 ml for $8.99, originally $10.99.

To start off with, Platinum 7X is on sale at Kroger affiliates for $8.99.

Which is even more amazing considering the Kroger Cashback program has a rebate for $8!

There is an additional rebate on Ibotta for $3 back. Don’t have Ibotta downloaded yet? Follow these steps:

  • Sign up for Ibotta here.
  • Go to the store page for the Kroger affiliate in your area.
  • Under the Spirits category, clip the $3 rebate.
  • Upload a picture of your receipt after purchase
  • That’s it – now you can continue earning to cashout straight to your bank, Paypal, or get yourself a gift card once reaching the $20 minimum cashout. Ibotta has free offers all of the time and you’ll likely get a bonus for signing up – mine was $10!

That’s not all! BYBE also has a $3 rebate. BYBE is available as a mobile app as well as having a desktop site. Once your receipt is verified, you can cash out via Paypal or a Visa Virtual card. You can sign up here or by downloading in your play store.

That’s a total of $14 in rebates! Even with my local taxes, a bottle at my affiliate (QFC) is $13.66. That makes for a small moneymaker to buy some vodka. How do you like your vodka? Boozy summer slushie, a fancy cocktail, or straight up? Let us know below!

Five Frugal Things Week of October 1st

Contests and Banking

I like to enter contests for fun. While I don’t enter as much as I use to, I still fit some entries every day waiting in line or watching TV. This week I won a trip for two to the Sundance Film Festival! I had to get the affidavit and publicity release notarized within a few days. Luckily, my bank notarizes member’s documents for free. I was able to get an appointment by the deadline and my guest was able to scan in all the documents for free at work.

Stocking Up Sale

Whenever I stop by the grocery store, I check the clearance meat section. There was a bunch of pork and beef already on sale and clearanced out 50% off. Turns out I clipped a personalized deal on the pork earlier in the week and forgot about it so only paid 98 cents a pound. It took a while but I vacuum sealed them when I got home and stacked them in the deep freeze. I only cook red meat during the weekends so even though this stock up cost me about $80, it should last me a few months. When it comes time to cook them, I toss them in a sous vide cooker for several hours so even the cheapest cuts come out delicious!

Focus Group Fun

I participated in a focus group through User Research International on my day off. It only took two hours and I made $100. It was actually pretty fun and the interviewers said the feedback I gave was very useful. It put me in the same town as my favorite brewery so I enjoyed a new beer before finishing off errands.

Delaying Big Purchases

I held off ordering a textbook until after the first day of class. Found out I could get the online access code for $20 cheaper if I bought it straight from the manufacturer instead of the campus bookstore. Don’t get me wrong, it was still more than I would have liked to pay for a book I don’t get access to after the course but I still rather save on it.

Cashback on DIY

SO needed a zipper repaired on his favorite pair of jeans. He found a set of replacements on eBay so I reminded him to go through Ibotta to make sure he got cashback. Turned out that he had a bonus for $6 back after redeeming one mobile shopping offer.

Impact of Facebook Reaction Buttons on Social Marketing

facebook-l

Like it or not, Facebook users can now do more than “like” posts. They will be able to love them and express sympathy, anger or sadness with animated emoticons.

The six new buttons appear as animated emoticons and pop up when the “like” button is long-pressed. “Dislike,” however, is still not an option. This likely due to fear of causing cyberbullying or negativity on Facebook.

Uses of the emoticon is already widespread, with users showing their true feelings on corporate posts. Moving forward, companies will need to walk  an even tighter line to prevent visible public disapproval.

GSI Exchange Gold Rush Giveaway – ends 2/28

gold giveaway.png

Gold has been a symbol of wealth for centuries.  Gold is a high-quality, liquid asset that can be used to protect global purchasing power, reduce portfolio volatility and minimize losses during periods of financial and economic crisis.  Investors recognize gold’s lack of correlation with other assets to diversify their portfolios and hedge against currency risk.

Investors have several ways to add precious metals to a diversified investment portfolio.  

Bullion coins are minted from precious metals, usually gold or silver, and bought for investment purposes from major banks, coin dealers, brokerage firms, and precious metal dealers.  Their value is based on their gold or silver bullion content.  Prices fluctuate daily, depending on the price of gold and silver in the world markets.

Whether you are planning for retirement, worried about inflation or simply looking to diversify your investments with a tangible physical asset, precious metals are known to hold value even during the most challenging financial times.  

Concerns about falling oil prices, slower growth in China and other economic factors have contributed to a sharp decline in the stock markets to start the New Year, but Gold has been a bright spot to an otherwise gloomy financial forecast.   On Thursday, February 11, 2016, gold jumped $53.20 an ounce to $1,247.80, the highest price since February 2015 and an 18 percent jump since the start of 2016.

GSI Exchange’s main focus is to offer the highest-quality silver, gold, palladium and platinum coins at the most competitive prices.  

GSI Exchange is an industry leader with a reputation for having better prices, better inventory, and better buybacks than other investment companies.  With more than $1 billion in commodities and precious metals transactions around the world and membership with the prestigious Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA), the American Numismatic Association (ANA), Professional Coin Grading Systems (PCGS), and Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC), GSI Exchange offer clients a complete range of customized precious metals portfolios and unique “Physical Possession” precious metals IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts).

3 Easy Steps for Millennials to Take Control of Their Finances

Early financial awareness is important since students are faced with so many important financial decisions.

Here are 3 steps to get your started:

Begin saving now!

The most important step you can take  is to start a small savings account. Begin depositing into it often, and as much, as you can. Make it an automatic deposit, the first bill you pay each payday, as it’s the most important! If an emergency comes up, like your vehicle breaking down or someone having to visit the hospital, you won’t be thrown into debt. You’ll have some savings to pay for that emergency, and you may use your normal paycheck for normal charges. 

Avoid unnecessary fees. 

Established in 2015, BankMobile is the nations’s first no-fee,virtual bank. BankMobile offers checking, savings, lines of credit, and access to to over 55,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide, as well as a personal banker for all customers. VIP members have free access to any ATM in the country and a free financial adviser. It is a Federal Reserve regulated and FDIC-insured commercial bank.

Earn some extra cash.

Entrepreneur Ross Simmonds says “From extra spending money to the opportunity to build new skills – side hustles just make sense. Everyone working in the 9 to 5 should have or consider starting their own side hustle.” A recent study by Michigan State University found that the job market is the hottest it’s been in a while, and projected a 16% increase for hiring 2015 college graduates.
