DD Perks

Have you heard about the Dunkin’ Donuts loyalty program? It’s called DD Perks, it started in January of this year and by June there were over a million members. With the DD Perks Rewards program guests can earn points towards free Dunkin’ Donuts beverages and if you sign up between now and December 5th you’ll get $5 added to your account when you use promo code BLOG at signup. You’ll also get a free beverage in any size when you first sign up for the program. Once you’re enrolled you’ll earn five points for every dollar you spend when you pay using an enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts Card, either plastic or through the Dunkin’ Mobile App. After you reach 200 points you’ll receive a coupon for a free beverage of your choice.

Once you get to 200 points you’ll earn your first reward but I felt rewarded already when I got these Perks in my account right away – double bonus points through December 8th and mobile coupons for a $1.99 medium hot or iced latte and a free turbo shot of espresso with any coffee purchase. Download the Dunkin’ Donuts mobile app to your smartphone and it’s simple to enroll in the DD Perks program and receive offers right on your phone. You can also keep track of your points and rewards.

DD Perks

The Dunkin’ App offers guests a new level of speed and convenience by allowing you to pay for your in-store purchases with the app. My phone is always on me, in fact it’s usually in my hand, so I love that Dunkin’ Donuts has integrated this technology into their existing systems, it’s so much easier than digging around in my purse for cash.

DD Perks

Another thing that I really love about the Dunkin’ App is that you can send people virtual cards via text, email or through Facebook connect. What a great way to buy a friend a cup of coffee no matter where they are and I think it’s also a wonderful idea to send gifts to loved ones that you know they’ll enjoy.  Sign up today and download your Dunkin’ App and don’t forget to use the promo code BLOG to get $5 added to your account right away.

 

Get Platinum Points with Crystal Light for Miranda Lambert Rewards

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Randarita Cocktail with Crystal Light

My kids and I are all hooked on CRYSTAL LIGHT – I always keep some of the individual packets in my desk at work to flavor my water throughout the day and the kids all have their favorite flavors. I make pitchers of Cherry Pomegranate CRYSTAL LIGHT for them at the house and I really like the Lemonade and the Raspberry Lemonade flavors for work. I enjoy knowing that I’m not serving the kids sugary drinks and that they’re only five calories per serving. Even better though was learning about the Randarita cocktail – you pour a shot of vodka over ice, add Raspberry Lemonade flavored CRYSTAL LIGHT and a splash of lemon lime soda. OMG delicious!!

Crystal Light Randarita

The fabulous Randarita cocktail was created by Miranda Lambert who says she drinks one during each concert. Being such a huge fan of her music I was thrilled to learn about the Platinum Points Program where you can earn points for buying CRYSTAL LIGHT products that you can redeem for rewards like Miranda Lambert music downloads, CDs, mugs, t-shirts and even an autographed guitar.

Crystal Light Randarita

I used the promo code “mirandaic” for 30 Platinum Points when I signed up for the program using my Facebook account, and then I earned 300 more points for buying these three packages at Walmart, 100 points for each package. Once you sign up you can also earn 10 points for each friend that you refer to the program.

Banner Ten

It’s super easy to sign up and earn points, all you have to do is register at the Earn Platinum Points site, shop for CRYSTAL LIGHT products at Walmart, snap a photo of your receipt with your smartphone and choose from a variety of Miranda Lambert rewards! I’m personally saving up my points for either a Miranda Lambert Platinum Tumbler for 1000 points or a Platinum Rhinestone T-shirt for 1200 points, or hopefully both. Let me know what you’d like to save up your points for!

It absolutely thrills me when I can save money on things I need to buy anyway, so I think the Fuel Rewards Network from MasterCard is a double whammy! When I shop at my neighborhood Winn Dixie store I use my Fuel Perks reward card every time I check out because it qualifies me for store discounts on certain marked products and it earns me money off of gasoline purchases every time I shop.

Saving Money With the Fuel Rewards Network from MasterCard

Did you know that you can also connect your MasterCard debit or credit card to your store rewards card through the Fuel Rewards Network and save even more money? There is a current promotion where you can get a bonus of 5 cents per gallon when you link your MasterCard to your Fuel Rewards Network account and that will help your rewards to add up even faster!


IMG_8043 (2)

I like to set savings goals to make things like these fuel rewards feel even more real and my plan for the savings that we’re getting through the Fuel Rewards program this summer is to treat my five kids with a pizza and ice cream party the week before school starts back. That will make them very happy and of course I’ll be happy too knowing that we’ve paid for the party while also saving on gas and groceries.

Saving Money With the Fuel Rewards Network from MasterCard

It is super simple to start saving with your MasterCard and your store rewards card through the Fuel Rewards Network! All you have to do is visit the Fuel Rewards Network website and sign up for a free account, then link it up to your store rewards card and your MasterCard and you’re all set. Then all you have to do is show your store rewards card and use your MasterCard when checking out at the grocery store to get those extra rewards. Easy breezy!

Make Your Online Shopping Time More Rewarding

Make Your Online Shopping Time More RewardingHow would you like to be paid for the things that you are going to be doing online anyway? What if you could get paid to do nothing more than make specific searches or play games? These are things that you probably do everyday already, using your computer, your phone or a tablet, so you might as well benefit from them.

When you use Swag Bucks, you get paid in a global currency that can be used online. After you accumulate enough Swag Bucks, you can use them on online shopping sites to purchase things that you also needed to get anyway. For example, you might be able to buy things like new shoes or software programs. These are not frivolous purchases since you know that you need them, but getting them with your Swag Bucks means that you do not have to spend any actual money. In a way, you are getting these items for free.

This is a great deal since it can help you stay within your budget and get things that you otherwise may not have been able to afford. On top of this, you can even get Swag Bucks for your online shopping purchases. The Internet has revolutionized the way that people shop in recent years. You can now buy things for incredibly competitive prices since there are so many different vendors. You can have those items shipped to your door so that, as long as you have a few days to wait, you never have to go through the hassle of going out and picking them up.

Now, with Swag Bucks, you can actually get paid to spend your money. After a certain point, you can turn your shopping itself into free items that you buy with this online currency. The best part about this whole system is that it is a cycle. You can get Swag Bucks for being online, and then you can spend them online, getting real, tangible goods in return. As a result, you will spend more time on the Internet, which can easily be translated into more Swag Bucks, leading you to more purchases. The whole system is set up in your favor.

There are many different kinds of online shopping rewards our there, but none of them give you the flexibility that Swag Bucks can provide. If you are given airline miles, for example, you have to use them on tickets. With this online currency, you get to choose what you buy. You get a say in how your rewards are used. You are no longer at the mercy of the company offering the rewards. This whole system is easy to use, adding another great element to online shopping.

It's time to get the December Upromise coupons loaded on your cards for Publix, Winn Dixie, Rite Aid and CVS.

You get to designate who gets the college money – it can be for you, for your child or grandchild. All you have to do is sign up and put in the numbers on your rewards cards, plus other people (like grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends) can also register their cards to add to your account if they'd like. In addition to earning rewards on your grocery shopping you can also earn rewards on gas, travel, online shopping and at your favorite restaurants.
