LAST CHANCE: Today is the last day to get a free $10 gift card when you get a pre-paid $50 American Express card.
UPDATE: Today, 7/31/12, is the very last day to take care of this awesome offer (best one of the month!!)
Two weeks ago, I received my two FREE $25 American Express gift cards from the previous AmEx offer. (They are going directly into our iPad Savings Fund.) These American Express offers don't come around too often, and they are such fantastic freebies. Just a reminder to take advantage of this no-brainer offer. It's also a great idea for traveling, sending kids off to college or seminary or yeshiva, or even a last minute wedding present!
If you have any hesitation or question regarding this offer, please feel free to contact me.
--------------------------------------------------------------------I loved the American Express prepaid card offer in June; easiest money I made all month. Some of your wrote to me saying that you would have loved to take advantage of the offer but $200 was too much to even move around for a reward. Well, guess what?
American Express has come out with a brand new offer for July. Order an American Express Prepaid Card, load $50 or more at the time of order, and receive a free $10 gift card.
I love these supereasy offers. For the price of moving around fifty bucks, you get an extra ten.
The American Express pre-paid card spends just like cash wherever regular American Express cards are accepted, with no fees. (I have been using ours at Costco.) You even get the fraud protection and roadside assistance programs of regular American Express memberships. Standard shipping on the prepaid card is free. There are no annual fees, no monthly fees, no customer service fees, no overdraft, inactivity, or foreign exchange frees, and no credit checks to get it (though you will need to enter your social security number), no overdraft fees (you spend what you load on the card), no transaction fees, and you even get one free ATM withdrawal per month. As with the other offer make sure that your card is still active (leave at least $1 on each card) until you receive the free gift card, as the card needs to be active in order to receive the bonus gift cards. This offer is one of those rare No-Brainers.
(Even better, in the terms of the offer, they state "Offer valid for all new Card orders with a single $50 load, including additional/supplemental accounts associated with an existing Card purchaser’s account."
That means that even if you took advantage of the June offer and bought a card, loaded $200 on it and qualified for the $25 free gift card, you can still qualify for this offer and get a new prepaid card, load $50 on it and receive a $10 gift card. I wanted to be sure, so I called American Express and they verified that you could qualify for the new offer even if you took advantage of last month's offer.)
The special $10 gift card offer ends 7/31/12. You do not need to already have a American Express card to qualify for this offer. You do not need to enter a promo code as long as you click through this link. Limit one $10 gift card per user named on the card. There are zero hidden charges. Click here to order your prepaid AmEx and get your free $10 gift card.
Subscribe to Country Living magazine, (normally $12.00 per year,) for just $5.99 per year (for up to three years) from Tanga when you enter promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout.

Look at this absolutely glittering set of jeweltone wine goblets: amber, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, turquoise and emerald, and imagine them on your table. These goblets received 4-1/2 out of 5 stars over 186 customer reviews, which doesn't surprise me at all.

This is a complete deviation from my typical posts and I hope you'll forgive my stepping away from our usual conversation for a moment. I feel that it's important and empowering to get involved politically and to have a voice in the election of our country's leaders. Politics really does affect every segment of our lives, particularly the financial one, from the price of peanut butter to the amount of money that you earn that will go to taxes. Get involved! Work towards electing the leadership in which you believe, speak up regarding the issues that are important to you, volunteer in any way you can and, most importantly, vote!
The end of the month is in just one short day! I have no idea where July went, but it went way too fast. Why does the summer just fly?
The end of the month means we can look forward to some new coupons popping up in the changing of the (coupon) guard on 8/1/12. It also means that many of your favorite coupons, you know, the ones you've been meaning to print but haven't gotten round to, are going to disappear. If you've got any coupons on Coupons.com, SmartSource, Red Plum, Whole Foods, Target, Betty Crocker, or Cellfire that you've been eyeing, now is a good time to put paper in the printer.
Without question, the absolute best deal of July was the American Express free $10 bonus gift card. If you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's not too late. Deals this easy and lucrative from reputable companies like American Express simply do not come around often enough, and when they do, jump on them! This excellent offer expires after 7/31/12, so hurry up.
Summer is (sadly) two-thirds of the way over and it's time to start thinking about back to school, home repairs, Rosh HaShana/Yom Kippur/Sukkot. Did you spend a little too much on summer vacation? Let's get back on track as autumn peeks around the corner.

Sometimes, saving money takes effort. This is not one of those times.
I'm always surprised to meet anyone who hasn't joined Swagbucks yet, but apparently, you guys are out there. Swagbucks is the King of No-Brainer Ways to Get Free Stuff. Swagbucks is effortless to join, use, and the rewards come quickly and easily. Basically, you get points for searching through the Swagbucks search engine (which is Google-based) and after 450 points, you get to redeem a $5 Amazon e-gift card. The points accumulate very quickly; I currently have hundred of dollars sitting in my Amazon account because of Swagbucks and have gotten a ton of free stuff that way. If you are more ambitious with extra time (I'm not) you can do other things to earn points, like take polls, surveys, refer friends, etc., but the fantastic thing about Swag Bucks is that you can earn points by doing something you would already be doing. No. Brainer.
Swagbucks starts you off with 30 Swagbucks when you first join up. Once you sign up, you are going to kick yourself for not joining sooner...earning free Amazon gift cards is pretty effortless once you get the party started. You want to join this program.
I came across this interesting post about how to "re-grow" celery that you've bought from the store. Fascinating idea. Anyone ever do this or something like it?
I'm headed out to Sprouts now and celery is on the list. I'm intrigued.
