The perfect time for replacing appliances in your house is before you HAVE to replace them. But that doesn’t always happen the way you want it to. I really hate that. I’m a planner. Our washer and dryer is about 12 years old and I think they are on their last leg. I’m the type who would rather replace them and my husband is the type to use them until they fail you… which doesn’t work for me. I don’t want to be without a washing machine for an extended amount of time.
This is why this week comes in handy. Right now (until 11/25), if you shop at Giant Eagle, you can get a $10 coupon good for your next purchase for EVERY $100 you spend on select gift cards. If you purchase a Sears, Best Buy, Google, Visa Gift, Fandango or JCPenney gift card, you get a $10 coupon on your next purchase. Just in time for Thanksgiving!
So heading to Giant Eagle and buy gift cards to try and soften the blow of a new washer and dryer would be awesome. But the $10 coupon isn’t the only money you are saving. You would still get the fuel perks for every $50 you spend (which would equal 40 cents for every $100) and extra points, miles or cash back by using your favorite rewards credit cards when buying these gift cards. Add up those rewards! I am!
Join me in buying up as many gift cards as you can for a just in case. I know I’m not the only one who hates buying things because you have to, not because you want to.
Plan ahead with me!
Also, don’t forget about the $50 Amazon gift card giveaway below. Its a great start to saving up a “just in case” fund on Amazon!
