Chase Ultimate Rewards


The Holidays are coming! I love this time of year!
Especially with little ones. It's so fun when you see it through their eyes!
They think everything is magical. The first set of Christmas lights is up today in our neighborhood and there was shrieking with excitement from the back seat.
Very loud shrieking. Painfully loud. Haha.
I love the memory making that comes with this time of year!
Lots of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, bribery-driven Christmas card photo ops, hand delivering treats and paper snowflake making!


With the holidays also comes gift giving and the hunt for
the perfect gifts to give without breaking the bank.
BUT there are ways to holiday shop on a budget
AND reward yourself at the same time!

Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire and Ink from Chase credit cards come with Ultimate Rewards, a program that lets cardholders redeem rewards for travel, gift cards, cash back, merchandise and more!

  1. To keep my holiday shopping costs down this year I decided to take sewing and crochet classes at my local Joann Fabric and will be attempting to make handmade gifts for family and friends. Wish me luck!!! Thanks for the opportunity. I'll send pics.

  4. We're being more intentional and relational with our purchases and overall, buying less this Christmas. Rather than exchanging gifts with my brother-in-law and his wife, we're having a "charity game night" where we will pool our money together and the winner of the game night gets the money for the charity of their choice. We are buying gifts for our 18-mo-old daughter, but it is a mix of things she needs and fair trade/one-for-one gifts that give back, so we're spending less but "giving" more. Pajamas from the ethical/fair trade Skin & Bliss (http://www.skinandbliss.com/girls-clothes/girls-pyjamas-slippers/hatley-pjs-girls-long-sleeve-pj-set-paisley-birds.html) the most adorable backpack (http://www.skinandbliss.com/brands-category/beatrix-new-york-childrens-lunch-boxes-back-packs/beatrix-new-york-big-kid-back-pack-penelope-the-octopus.html), TOMS shoes, etc...Rather than spending the money for fancy photo Christmas cards this year, we're saving the photo session for Spring and are sending out cards from Good Cause Greetings with 10% of the proceeds benefiting Feed America.

  5. To save money during Christmas gift buying season, I did a bulk of my shopping on cyber Monday, with codes that I had accumulated. I also did whatever shopping that I could on a charitable site called psiadoreyou.com They're amazing! They feature unique, quality items at a major discount and they give a portion of the proceeds to families with children who have cancer. Awesome cause! Check it out! Still have a lot of shopping to do, so $100 towards that fund would be incredible for us, especially since we're having a small christmas this year- just gifts for our daughter. Thanks!

  6. Use coupons and watch for bogo deals!!! Merry Christmas

  7. To save money for the holidays, I buy early and always when stuff is on sale! Black Friday is the best day. Plan your lists way ahead so you know if it will be on sale during Black Friday. email: katiehesler@gmail.com

  8. I research every item I want to buy to find the best price and where I could use coupons/codes or hit sales, etc. I also use Swagbucks to help bring the price down!

  9. I shop throughout the year so our spending is spread across 12 months.

  10. I shop early, and hunt the deals, but we also don't go crazy, sometimes less is more!

  11. My holiday shopping strategy is to share the shopping list. I give the kids list to all my family and they let me know what they are getting in ahead of my shopping then I finish the list. By the time the family and grandparents finish shopping there are only 1 or 2 items left:)

  12. I start shopping early, and buy things when they are on sale. I love when Target runs their buy 2 boxes of diapers, get a $20 gift card promotion. I save up those gift cards and use them to buy Christmas gifts.

  13. I keep a wishlist on my iphone, and shop year round by keeping my eye out if anything on the wishlist goes on a deep discount. I mostly shop on Amazon too, so I keep things in my cart and when I see something go way down in price I jump on it! I guess its a more slow-going, mindful way to shop! I'm also a big fan of Ultimate Rewards and Chase.

  14. I started pretty early this year, especially on sites like Groupon. I got a few people out of the way doing that, and then I went out on Black Friday and scored some great deals! It's all about planning enough ahead of time, which can definitely be difficult. My mind is constantly thinking in the future though, so that helps =)

  15. this year, since moving half way across the country from our families, my husband and i will be sending souvenirs from San Francisco to our families, along with a gift card! :)

  16. I shop year round for good deals, and store all future gift items in one location so I don't forget what I have and where I have it!

  17. I shop early. I try to make as much as I can myself.

  19. We are making alot of homemade gifts this year and are scaling back in general, hoping this will help the kids focus on the reason for the season! Merry Christmas!

  20. To keep costs down i have been baking a lot of my gifts! Everyone loves homemade stuff that they can bring to their next holiday party :)

  23. I'm doing my best to limit to a rough dollar amount and to keep it to a "want, need, wear" guideline, especially for the kids. They'll get swamped with gifts from aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends, so there's no need for overkill from us.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I keep a constant look out for online deals AND I've been known to even find new stuff sold at second hands stores!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am hand-making some gifts and bought several things on Black Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've made a habit of watching the flash site and daily deal sites to score some great gifts at a discounted price! (MyHabit, Zulilly etc.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I bought several things online when they were on sale and had free shipping!

  28. I keep an eye out for deals online and utilize those sales.

  29. I'm making a few gifts with lots of love such as canned fruit, jam, and marmalade (which really came out like marinade). Lol! Also shopping consignment for toys through craigslist and Just Between Friends.

  30. I make a lot of my gifts from things I already have in my craft room. I also save on stocking stuffers. You can learn more at http://www.myfruitfulhome.com/2013/12/guest-posting-over-at-money-saving-mom.html

  33. To save money, I try to shop for gifts throughout the year. That way it's not a lot of money all at once, the spending is spread throughout the year.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I use amazon prime mostly for our shopping. Free 2 day shipping and usually the best prices you can find. I'm also keeping down the # of gifts we are getting and only trying to add on to stuff we already have.

  35. To save money every Christmas, I always plan ahead and go Black Friday Shopping...whatever I do not get then usually waits until Cyber Monday and I buy online using my E-bates account. It saves us money and I use my credit card to buy getting my points too...it's a 2-fer. Merry Christmas!!!

  36. We are doing most of our shopping online this year, we did alot of it early to try to get some bargains when we came across them. :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  37. I start making my list for my daughter early so I can buy her things here and there and it's not a lot of money going out all at once. I also shop around for the best price and always google for coupon codes when shopping online!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My strategy is to shop gradually, throughout the year, so the cost is not all concentrated in one month.

  40. Since getting married on April20th I am now purchasing gifts for roughly 25 people and enjoy gift giving!! I love to shop year round and to listen to each person I am gifting for in something they really want instead of just another shirt or pants or something the kids won't use. Etsy and homemade is also my choice Togo to be able to support others! I love gift giving the most just to see everyone's faces and if I spread it out throughout the year it works better!!

  42. I try to shop throughout the year but this year we bought a new house and my husband start a new job so I wasn't really able to do that this year! It will be a small Christmas for our boys, but I would love to buy my husband a surprise gift because he really deserves it!!
