Team Couponaholic now has a Shop Your Way Personal Shopper account! Personal Shopper is a little bit of a misnomer, it’s more like “Personal Deal Finder,” ‘cuz while ya’ll are great, I’m not shopping for you, shopping for me is exhausting enough! 😉 There are a few benefits though to having a personal shopper:
- When you sign up, you’ll get a three month trial to SYW Max, which allows you to get free shipping on orders that are either over $30 or have a single item priced at over $10. There is no Credit Card required and it doesn’t automatically renew.
- Most months, Shop Your Way sends out a few bucks in points to members who are signed up with a personal shopper that are valid for a couple of days. There is no guarantee this will continue in the future, but it’s happened almost every month that I’ve been watching. I’ll be sure to let you know in the blog and on Shop Your Way, when this is coming.
- Personal Shoppers have the ability to send out store coupons to clients. What coupons are available tend to vary, but I definitely plan on sending out the best value coupon I can find to all clients on the first day of each Super Doubles.
So after my trip fell through last night, I was back at it again first thing this morning. I went to the Kmart on the other side of town to see if they would take my Ziploc coupon that beeped at the close Kmart last night. Unfortunately, this Kmart was out of both the Ziploc size I needed and was out of the Tide that was on sale for $5.99. So I went back to the closest Kmart to my house and decided to stock up on Tide since it was the last day. (There was still a ton of Tide on the shelf too!) I always pay attention to the emails Shop Your Way sends me, to see what fun coupons I can get that aren’t automatically loaded to my account. I decided to roll with the 10% off coupon I got, to squeeze a little more out of my trip!
As I mentioned in previous posts, in the past, I’ve neglected to include my standard points (and doubled points for SYW Max), but, honestly, the points are part of the savings at Kmart and in the interest of completeness, I plan on doing it going forward. (To get the double points, you have to have a paid SYW Max account, but it costs $39 for a year and you get a guaranteed $3 a month back in points on the first of each month, so it runs $0.25/month. But since you get double points, all you would need to spend is $25/month to break even.)
