It’s true, they’re awesome. And they also want to give you two $25 gift cards! Well, they actually gave ’em to me to so I can blog about my experience, but I thought I’d pass them along to you instead ;) I don’t need any free money to pimp them out – I already love them! T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have always been some of the best places for frugal rock stars to shop.
Plus, I’m on a record for the least amount of stores visited this year. Which will unfortunately be broken as soon as I start shopping for Xmas in a bit…bleh.
But back to the free gift cards! According to the National Retail Federation, the average family is planning on spending $682 this holiday season – but if you win of these $25 gift cards, you’ll only need to spend $657! (Oh joy!) That number seems pretty high to me anyways, so hopefully you find ways to cut costs even more (may I suggest making things, or gifting your “services”?) Either way, I have two $25 gift cards to give to someone – one for T.J. Maxx, and the other for Marshalls. If one of these sound good to you, please answer this question:
What’s a good gift for a 20-something guy? (I need some ideas for myself! haha…)
- Drop a comment with your answer.
- Tell me WHICH card you want. (I will divide up the entries per card.)
- Leave some way to be contacted! Blog, twitter, email (name (at) email (dot) com works)
That’s it my friends! Enter by midnight on Friday, and I’ll draw up the winners via Random.org and then post them up HERE on this very same post (so bookmark it or check back later, or just see if I contact you ;) ). Here’s to great bargain shopping!
PS: If you sing, they’re also giving away a $5,000 shopping spree if you submit a video and win.
*CONTEST OVER* And the 2 winners are…. Kara for the T.J. Maxx Card, and Investing Newbie for the Marshalls Card! Congrats guys! And thanks everyone for participating :) We’ve got a HELLUVA great giveaway lined up for next week so get excited!!!
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
