Seeing is Believing

I've been working on a project for the last 7 weeks that I've been keeping under my hat. I wasn't sure if it was going to work out the way I hoped and frankly, if it crashed and burned, I wanted to suffer that embarrassment alone. Thankfully, it didn't come to that!

This is me...and my $500 Visa Giftcard that arrived today!

I follow several money saver blogs, and Amber blogged about how she had received one of these in the mail. I was intrigued. I can't tell you how often I get those email spam offers that promise me a huge giftcard for FREE. Well, let me just say that it definitely wasn't free, but it only cost me about $26 out of pocket to score this giftcard. Not bad for a profit of $474!

This will definitely come in handy for clothes shopping when I lose all this weight.

Anyway, rather than recap all the details on how I did this, I'm going to send you to visit the blog who walked me through this process. Carrie has done all the legwork on researching the good offers and writing great instructions on how to make these deals happen. It's legit. It works. And now I'm off to start working on some other giftcard offers. Yippee!!

One word of caution. Make sure you read everything before you dive in. This is not a project for someone who doesn't pay attention to details and doesn't stay on top of things. Now, have fun with it and if you get a giftcard, please let me know!

I've read about those offers before but never done it. Congrats to you! That's a nifty profit.

That is sooo very cool. I just forwarded your blog to my husband...I think he'll be all over this :-)

I'm sooooo close... still working on it, though.

Wow! How freaking awesome is that! I would love to get a $500 giftcard, but I fear I wouldn't have the follow-through to make it happen.
