I'm in central Vermont, on a family vacation, and not doing much frugal shopping. I am, however, contemplating how I will use my $500 IKEA card!
Speaking of gift cards, you don't have to sign up for offers and spend money to get gift cards. You can get them for free! Have you joined Swagbucks yet? I've got 200 something Swagbucks myself, after havig recently cashed a bunch in fr gift cards. If you haven't heard about Swagbucks, you need to! Basically, you log in and use their search engine (which uses Google & Ask.com) and you win Swagbucks which are redeemable for gift cards and other stuff. This is the coolest of my "free" recommendations because you are simply being rewarded for something you do anyway! If you want to be referred, simply click on this link and I think I get some referral credit :) I tried 2 other search engine reward programs that I didn't like at all. Swagbucks is definitely the way to go, especially since there is no special toolbar you need to download.
I also use Mypoints and InboxDollars. Both programs reward you for reading e-mails and then clicking on the links. The difference is that My Points pays in gift cards, whereas Inbox Dollars pays in cold, hard cash. Again, I can refer you to these programs if you'd like. You can simply click on this link for InboxDollars, but for My Points, I have to refer you via e-mail. Inbox Dollars will give you $5 just for signing up.
