Cold, Hard (Air Miles) Cash

Every year I say we’re going to reign in the holiday spending but then every year the credit card statements come rolling in in January and it kind of sucks. This year, though, I am going to save money by redeeming some of our Air Miles Cash.

You know how sometimes you go to check out with a cashier and the total comes out way lower than you expected and you realize that the stuff you’re buying is cheaper than you thought? On sale but not yet showing the great deal on the price tag? So you had braced yourself to spend a schwack of dough and then they’re like, “It’s actually way less than a schwack! It’s only half a schwack!” and you’re like, “SCORE!” and you feel great for the rest of the day?

Well, that’s what it’s like when you redeem your Air Miles cash!

There are so many great sponsors out there who offer this program and it’s such a helpful way to make savings a part of this crazy season. We drive a huge beast of a truck that guzzles the gas, so I can redeem my Air Miles Cash at Shell, and we always seem to have a renovation project on the go, so we can also do the same at RONA.

(Gas is better when it’s free.)

I am always looking for ways to cut costs, to pad the bank account and stretch our holiday dollars.

Where will you use you Air Miles Cash this year?
