I found a Saks Fifth Avenue gift card worth $50, a Pottery Barn gift card worth $25, a Panera Bread gift card worth $15, and a Macy's gift card worth $10.
Naturally, I get to thinking of all the things I want, nay NEED, from these retailers. OK, well Panera not so much because it's a Celiac's nightmare. (That was gifted to my coworker.) I started with browsing the sites to see what was on sale, had free shipping or caught my eye.
And then, I got serious.
I have found that I can earn Delta SkyMiles through a partner site called SkyMiles Shopping. It's like eBates where you access an online retailer through their site to earn miles. For example, I was looking at getting a pair of Hunter Huntress Black Gloss boots for the winter. By typing that into the search frame, they found me retailers that had the boots. The comparison comes in miles/dollar spent and the awesome freebies they throw in, too.
To start, I ordered the Hunter boots from shoes.com because they offer a whopping 6 miles/dollar and free shipping! Score!
|The glossy finish reminds me of patent black.|
Enter the Saks gift card.
|I love the ivory against the glossy black. The sweater weave also makes it look so cozy!|
|I wasn't a fan of my monogram in the available fonts, so I opted for the "A".|
