Doing a Happy Dance with Free Spending Money!

Whenever we're in Florida, one of the things we like to do is head to Old Navy & Gap and stock up on clothes, especially for the kids. It's so much cheaper to do it there and because we fly P.E. we get the extra baggage allowance.

So a few months ago a friend of mine introduced me to a couple of reward sites where you can earn points and cash them in for Old Navy and Gap gift cards. I signed up and was really sceptical but I figured I'd give it a go. DW signed up as well and we've collected $600 in free gift cards for our trip! By the time the trip rolls around in October, we'll probably have doubled that!

I'm so excited to have all of that "free money" because now I can spend our usual spends on other fun stuff! Might even put it towards one of the special tours or experiences at WDW!

Sorry had to share...I'm so stoked!

cool, I always love to hear that people are spending money at Gap.

My husband works for them, so he gets 50% off for himself and 30% off everything else.
The more money Gap make, the better for the staff

What reward site do you use? Im registered on a few but dont think the same one as you. Never hurts having free money

Have fun spending

Wow great work. I answer surveys to get Virgin airmiles but haven't done any for a while after going mad for a few months doing them. With the way flight prices are going i'll be needing those miles.

I'm not sure I'm allowed to mention them on the boards because it might be seen as advertising or spam links etc. If anyone is interested in knowing the sites I use, you can drop me a PM and I'll give you the sites. You don't have to get Gap or Old Navy, there are a bunch of different gift cards you can cash your points for. I use it just to get spends for FL, but you can also cash out for M&S, Amazon, Paypal and other UK based companies. I'm so happy I found out about them, I had no idea such things existed!!!!
