As I’ve said a lot lately, I still don’t have ALL of my Christmas shopping done. I know, I know- we’re less than a week a way at this point. But I still don’t know what to get some people! The stores are all completely insane at this point though, so I can tell you one thing: I’m doing the rest of my shopping online!
There are a few incentives to shopping online: you can avoid the crowds, items are less likely to be out of stock, and now you can get a $20 gift card when you spend $200 online before December 31, 2011!
I love the last one in particular because that means I’m instantly saving 10% on the gifts I have to get anyway, which is exciting to me. &It makes me feel special because MasterCard is recognizing all of the hard work we Moms do in preparation for the Holidays with this Here’s To Mom promotion!
If you want to shop smart &score a $20 gift card for shopping online, just follow the steps below:
1. Register your MasterCard at http://bit.ly/sOKpoP – this literally took me about a minute, if even that. &I’m not exaggerating.
2. Use your MasterCard to shop online between now & December 31, 2011: spend it all on one big purchase or divvy it up between several small orders- it doesn’t matter!
3. When you spend $200, you’ll get an email from MasterCard confirming your qualification, which will include instructions on how to get your MasterCard gift card or other gifts.
That’s it! &You can shop at any online store you want, so no matter how odd or hard to find the gifts you’re giving are, they’ll help reach your $200 total!
I’ve already gotten over halfway there by shopping on Amazon for Justin’s family, and I still have more gifts to get for Shane, Justin & my family so that gift card is well within my reach!
Do you still have any shopping left to do? Will you be doing it online or are you crazy enough to go to the store?
