Savings Chart Update Week 7: Redeemed Recyclebank Rewards to Earn FREE People Magazine Subscription = $78 in Savings
If you follow FreebieFindingMom.com, you’re probably aware that I frequently offer opportunities to earn free Recyclebank points. Thanks to these opportunities, I have accumulated a fairly sizable amount of points. The other day I was perusing the Recyclebank website to determine if there were any new, interesting rewards available and to my surprise I spotted a 26 issue People magazine subscription for 1,140 points. I was super pumped! I must confess I do enjoy reading celebrity magazines and learning about all the latest gossip. I know, it may not be the most mentally stimulating content, but it sure helps pass the time while I am working out on the stair master.
About every other week or so, I pick up a copy of People magazine while I am at the store, but now with this new Recyclebank reward, I am able to redeem 1,140 points and get 26 free issues. It was a little painful to use most of my accumulated points to snag this free subscription, but getting a new magazine mailed to my door every week is pretty exciting.
My week 7 savings chart entry assumes I purchase one issue of People Magazine every other week for the entire year. Since a single issue is approximately $3, this results in a $78 annual savings, which brings my current savings total to $2,558.03.
