A shout-out

In these tough economic times I think it's worth supporting some companies who are trying to help the little guy out. I can't say I can think of all that many but talking from personal experience I will give a shout out to some marketing/data collection sites that I use and have greatly benefited from.

Mypoints.com for one made it possibly for our PS3 purchase. You sign up and everyday you get 1-5 emails from them. Click the link in the email and you get 5 points. Easy-peasy. Eventually you can get enough points and get gift cards and they really do show up! I thought at first it would be super annoying getting those emails but it's really not so bad and at least I have NEW emails waiting for me each day. I could probably earn some points for recommending a friend to join but that's not what this is about. Check it out and maybe in 6 months you could have a $25 gift card.

e-miles.com is another site that I answer short questionnaires on. It doesn't take long, I don't get many emails at all really and you can earn air miles.

e-rewards.com is the third site that I use. Again you answer short surveys only on this site, if you qualify, you can answer the WHOLE survey which goes on for 10 minutes or so depending on your reading/brain speed.

There are a lot of these sites out there, I think, and not all of them are legit so I only can recommend these ones. You can buy me something nice with your gift card to say thanks.

Love MyPoints. I've been a member for more than eight years and I've earned about $600 in gift cards.

If you shop online much, you can really rack up the points. You just need to go to MyPoints.com and find your merchant in the list and connect to the site (Barnes & Noble for example). You'll earn 2-10 points per dollar that you spend.

Another good saving tip ... if you like to eat out, sign up with the email club for your favorite restaurants. You'll normally get a savings coupon via email immediately and receive additional coupons throughout the year. I usually get a $5 or $10 off coupon on the anniversary of my sign-up, too.
