$20 EZ Reward With $300 Visa Gift Purchase

 

Time is flying fast this year. I cannot believe we are almost into the fourth month of the year and closer to the halfway mark of 2017 as well.

Some things have changed since I last updated with a personal post: I started working in education. Now more than ever, I see how much time teachers dedicate to work outside working hours and on top of that, supplies that are purchased with money out of pocket.

That is why gift card deals are great for tight budgets. The little perks with purchase make it worth it. Right now if you purchase $300 in Visa Gift Cards at Staples, get a $20 EZ Rebate.

Get in on this deal before March 18, 2017:

Save On Road Trip Fuel with #Kroger4xFuel

Road trip! Spring Break is around the corner and gas prices have gone up a bit. Until I purchase a hybrid vehicle, I’m going to have to keep looking for ways to save. Including the use of fuel discounts.

One of my favorite road trips was around 2009. Almost ten years ago… wow! It is time to return to Yosemite. I would love to see Yosemite Falls. After all the rain this year, I could imagine it is beautiful.

Another beautiful view.

Yet there are so many other places that I have not been, that are worthy of seeing. My husband and I have discussed revisiting the Grand Canyon. We went in 2002 and did not spend too much time seeing the sites. It was an extremely short trip. There are too many places to consider but here’s a list of my top 5 in California:

  1. Yosemite
  2. Lake Tahoe
  3. Sequoias
  4. Redwoods
  5. Mount Shasta    

If money or time wasn’t an issue, where would you road trip? What’s on your top 5 list? Or where would you like to go on Spring Break?

Sign up for the digital coupon and get more savings on your next fuel up. The offer ends March 21, 2017. See store for more details.
