If you coupon, enter giveaways, have an email address, chances are you have LOTS and LOTS of extra emails other than just those from your family and friends. As someone who enters lots of contests (I win some too :)) usually one of the ways to get extra entries is to sign up for updates, newsletters, etc. We check the box, Check to see we have 100 new emails and than because our emails are becoming overwhelming we do massive deletes without really opening them. We do a quick glance to see if we see anything that catches our eye and hit select all and delete .
Have you ever wondered what you are throwing out? Ever wonder if you lost anything good? The last few days I have been super sick and haven’t left the couch; no kids around so I had time to putter; so glad I did and I learned something very important
To pay more attention to those useless emails !! Let me show you why!
Now like me you probably thought it was a discount for a magazine subscription. Me too !! I was wrong !!
I always check Ebates first for Cash Back
It was only listed as 1.5% back today for The Shopping Channel but that was okay with me on Free Money and it had free shipping! I picked up only 2 items as I expected there would be tax. I grabbed a nice card holder for all my discount cards 🙂 And I nice blanket for the next time I get sick to cuddle up with 🙂 Total price tag of Zero dollars and Zero cents with Free shipping and I earned $0.57 via Ebates! Soooooooooooooooo Always be sure you check those “junk/spam” emails……….. you never know when you could be throwing out something more than just a free sample !!
