Someone asked how much money I had to spend in order to get my $500 gift card to Sears. Good question! So today I set out to figure that out.
I have spent $70.71 so far (I still have to buy 2 DVD's from Columbia house, but I'll be getting 6 DVD's for about $40-$50 out of that), a good portion of which would have been avoidable if I had known some of the tips I laid out in my post. I had said I think I could have done it for under $50, and I was right!
I'm going to try another deal in the near future, and I'll let you guys know what I spend on that one.
