Getting ready for vacation! Comps and Giftcards!

April 6th, 2016 at 06:14 am

We leave for vacation in 5 days! I am so excited!!

In standard Banker Gurl style I am doing what I can to get free/discounted items lined up to spend as little as possible on our trip.

We are flying to Laughlin, NV and while we are there we will take a rental car to Vegas for one night and then drive back to Laughlin the next day and fly home. Total trip is 5 days.

*Free flights for both of us to Laughlin
*Free rooms at Harrah's while we are in Laughlin
*$15 GC for Starbucks (Gift)
*$25 GC for Olive Garden (Gift, using this for lunch in the city we are flying out of before we get on the plane)
*$25 GC for Avis Rental Car (Redeemed from my Citi Card Rewards)
*$50 GC for Bubba Gump Shrimp (Redeemed from my Discover Rewards)
*$50 GC for Outback Steakhouse (Redeemed from my Discover Rewards)
*Free Rooms at The D while we are in Vegas
*Comped food at several places in addition to the GCs we are bringing, so we shouldn't have to spend much of anything on food while we are there. I am shooting for under $100 for the whole 5 days.
*$445 in free slot play between the different casinos!

So between comps and GCs we are bringing, the only thing we should have to pay for is possibly a small amount of food, the balance on the rental car (about $50), tips and gambling.

Our goal for our gambling money will be to bring home 50% of what we take (we are gamblers and we are not delusional...lol), but hoping to keep up our winning streak and come home ahead again!!

CVS Deals Week of 1/4/16

January 10th, 2016 at 06:59 pm



I had 2, $5.00 EB that expired this weekend, so I hit up CVS while I was in town for some more Christmas festivities with my family. I was worried that I would have to use them on items that I didn't want/need, or on full price items, but I was very happy I found some deals!

First I noticed they had a lot of Christmas items at 75% off. I really didn't need any Christmas stuff (and a lot of the items left at this point are kind of junky), but I did find 3 evergreen pillar candles. I actually have 3 decorative candle holders in my Christmas decorations that I didn't put out this year because the previous candles I had had melted and become misshapen. So this was a great surprise! I also found a box of Christmas ornament hooks at 75% off, and I wasn't able to put all of my ornaments up this year since some were missing hooks so I grabbed those too. Those were the only Christmas items that I wanted, so then I tried to look for items to resell, but everything was already pretty cleaned out (mostly from my Mom a few days ago..lol) and they were already filling up the empty space with Valentines items. But then I noticed a display of Burt's Bees Lip Balm, it was normal price, but I noticed there were a few seasonal flavors hanging with the normal flavors. They weren't any signs that they were marked down, but when I scanned them they came up 75% off! After that I just needed a few more dollars to use the rest of my EB. I found a good sale on Fiber One bars which are nice to have at my desk for a quick healthy snack so I grabbed a box of those too. The small amount I had to pay OOP (just $1.52) I used a CVS GC for, so I didn't have to pay anything! Total savings before the GC was $39.37!!
