Our winner, about to live larger. Also: Cheap EBs, sinister blog carnivals and a guest post.Posted by Donna Freedman on Nov 2, 2010 | 2 comments
Congratulations to Anne, who won this week’s giveaway of “10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget.” Thanks to all who entered.
A few other Tuesday short takes:
In my Friday post at the MSN Money Smart Spending blog, “A cheaper Entertainment Book,” I explained the swell deal I got on the coupon-crammed publication:
- First, Mr. Rebates took $3 off the book’s purchase price
- Next, the site offered 30% cash back, or $9.60
- Finally, it threw in free shipping and a $25 Restaurant.com gift card
Now the folks at Mr. Rebates have made a liar out of me: They just increased the cash-back to 35%, or $11.20.
If you don’t already belong, I hope you’ll use my referral link to join. You’ll get $5 in your account just for signing up.
With holiday shopping upon us, cash-back sites like Mr. Rebates, Fat Wallet, Ebates and Extrabux can add another layer of savings to the best deals you find.
I’m in three personal finance carnivals this week.
I’ve got a guest post up at the Earn blog. “Building wealth – even if you think you can’t” is a collection of eight tips for saving money or bringing in a little extra.
Earn is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco; its mission is to help low-income workers build economic prosperity.
