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 usually when I do a TP deal, my savings rate drops; however, I since I knew I would have a higher out of pocket, I figured I would do my lower savings rate deals on Qunituple Points Monday since you don’t earn points on the doubled portion of the coupons to maximize my savings for the week. I also included the approximate savings for paying with my Citi card. (You can read about that here.) I think the cash back will probably include the taxes, because I don’t think they will have a breakdown on what was paid for what. I won’t know for sure until it shows up on my statement.
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 only 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.)
