Hello Everyone,

Many credit card reward programs regularly run limited-time only promotions when they double or triple the number of points, cash-back, or other bonuses you earn when you shop at certain retailers. But what if you don't need to buy anything before the deadline?

Simply buy gift cards for those stores you plan to visit at a later date! they can be used for up to 5 years from the time of purchase and, unless specifically stated otherwise in the rules, you will qualify for the extra perks.

Preserve steel-wool pads

You use a steel-wool pad once, put it in a dish by the sink, and the next day you find a rusty mess fit only for the trash. To prevent rust and get your money’s worth from a pad, wrap it in foil and toss it into the freezer. You can also lengthen the life of your steel-wool soap pads by crumpling up a sheet of foil and placing it under the steel wool in its dish or container.

(Don’t forget to periodically drain off the water that collects at the bottom.)
