Do you participate in rewards programs?
A while ago I bought a handful of the Studio Ghibli films on BluRay cause they were on sale. Yesterday I was relaxing, and saw the discs on my shelf, opened them up and saw some redemption codes for some rewards program. So I signed up to Disney's site, and redeemed all my codes. Ended up having enough points to get a free BluRay/DVD combo copy of Treasure Planet (I like that movie).
And I ***** myself out to Microsoft for a 5 dollar Amazon gift card through Bing searches. Got about 5 dollars once a month, and recently it popped up that I could get more points for mobile searches, so my last 5 dollar gift card only took 18 days.
I have a lot of points built up on my cable company's system. Monday is a monthly rewards day, I'll probably redeem a bunch of stuff then too. My last one was an ESPN folding chair. One of those ones that fold up into a tube shaped bag. It's actually pretty nice for being basically free.
I really should get around to grabbing a credit card from my bank with a decent rewards program too... I'm just never think about it. I just got a check that I'll have to drop off at the bank tomorrow, maybe I'll do it then if I can remember.
