Mrs. Weekly Flyer and I are always looking for extra points for buying things that we would normally buy anyway. We try to order through online portals whenever possible to maximize points. As Baby Weekly Flyer gets older, we have found that we are racking up points buying Baby Weekly Flyer food that would get eaten anyway!
Here’s The Deal
Baby Weekly Flyer eats on average 6 organic baby food items per day in addition to fresh home made items. We buy organic baby food pouches that cost anywhere between $1-$2 per pouch. We started buying the food at the grocery but, have found that Baby Weekly Flyer eats so much that it is easier to order it in bulk online and we are getting on average 2500 extra points per month through the Chase portal!
- Drugstore.com offers free shipping on $25 orders.
- Chase Rewards has extra 7 points per $1 right now. Sometimes it’s 10 points!
- Here’s the math: 6 pouches of food per day x $2 = $12 x 30 days = $360 per month x 7 points = 2520 Chase points per month. Over 30k points per year!
- Look for sales and promotions at retailer to make the deal even sweeter! Right now, new customers that spend $50 at Drugstore.com get a free $100 Restaurant.com gift code! No promotion code needed.
The Bottom Line
Think outside the box, find things that you are spending money on anyway and order it online through a shopping portal. If you have children, it is easy! Think diapers, wipes, food, toys! Many retailers are offering free shipping which makes it a no brainer if the items are competitively priced! Save time going to the store, have your items delivered to your door and watch the miles/points add up!
