Celebrating Valentine’s Day & $25 Olive Garden eGift Card Giveaway


Valentine’s Day is in a few weeks and we have partnered with eight other blogs to give you some tips on how to make that day a special one, whether you’re celebrating with a special someone, your kids, friends, or flying solo.

Valentine’s Day Tip:

A fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to go to dinner and a movie. However, with the cost of movie tickets and dinner, sometimes it can be quite expensive. Here’s a tip on how you can save a lot of money when going out to the movies:
1) Sign up for a free Ebates account, the cash back site.
2) Sign up for the rewards program at your movie theater of choice: AMC Stubs, Classic Cinemas, Goodrich Quality Theaters, Marcus Theatres, Regal Crown Club, and more.
3) While logged into Ebates, select Fandango. Link up your movie theater rewards program in Fandango. You will usually save on paying the convenience fee when purchasing your movie tickets PLUS you’ll earn points on your rewards program.
4) Use the rewards you’ve earned from your movie theater rewards program when purchasing concessions.
5) Another way to save money on concessions is to look for products that give you movie cash with purchase. We’ve noticed that cereals from Kellogg’s and General Mills sometimes offer free movie tickets or concession cash on specially-marked boxes.
6) Receive cash back from Ebates from your purchase.-

We just spent the majority of our retirement savings for attorneys to fight for custody of our son who passed away little boy. He was born 37 days after his daddy passed and his mommy is too busy doing drugs to care about him, so Sept 23rd was our final court day and the judge awarded us permanent custody. not complaining it was money well spent.
