- Hamilton Beach single serve coffee maker for a Christmas gift for Hubby ($49.00)
- 18 K-cups for the new coffee maker ($15.99)
- Several apps for the new tablet ($10)

For smartphones and tablets only:
Appnana: Earn "Nanas" by checking into the app daily and installing and opening new apps on your device. I wait until the Nanas credit to my account. and then I delete the new app from my tablet. The Nanas can be used to purchased Amazon gift cards, Google play gift cards, Itunes gift cards, Paypal cash, and several other rewards. Install the app on your device for free and use the code "a753486" for an additional 2500 Nanas.
Viggle: Earn points by "checking in" to tv shows on your smartphone or tablet. Some shows are worth extra points plus sometimes there are fun little quizes to play along with the show that earn you extra points. The rewards change periodically, but I'm waiting until they offer Amazon gift cards again to cash in my points. You can download the app for free. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join with my referral link to get an extra 1000 points!
*Note: When I'm shopping online, I either get free shipping or a percentage off my order by searching for coupon codes at sites like retailmenot.com and coupons.com. NEVER pay full price when shopping at a big name store online. Combine those savings with cashback through one of the sites mentioned above and possibly rewards points on your credit card and you can save a lot of money!
