I have been getting lot’s of emails asking how to break this cat down so here is goes.
Shaw’s is having a deal where if you spend $100.00 in Gift cards you get a $20.00 Shaws Cat to use on your next grocery order.
Here’s how to milk this cat
Step 1. Go to Shaw’s buy a $100.00 Kmart or Sears gift card, pay $100.00 get back a $20.00 Shaw’s cat.
Step 2. Go to Kmart buy a $100.00 American Express, Pay 105.99 use your Kmart card to pay and then pay $5.99 oop (there is a 5.99 activation fee).
*When paying you will just swipe your Kmart card as a form of payment just like you would a credit card. There is no need to explain this to the cashier or ask if it’s ok to pay with a gift card for a gift card.
Step 3.Go back to Shaw’s and buy $100.00 more in Kmart gift cards , pay with your AE gift card , get $20.00 in Shaws money .
Each time you roll this you will have to put out $5.99 in activation fees but you will be getting $20.00 back in Shaws cats as you do this so it’s a 14.01 Shaws profit each roll based on a 100.00 gift card purchase.
The trick some have been finding to make this no oop at all is to then put your Shaws cats onto a Shaws gift card. Finding a Shaws that will allow that to happen will be the hard part. If you’ve found one please post where so others can extend the life of the Shaws cats and then use the Shaws gift card to pay for the next set of gift cards.
While doing this deal also think of ways to to get your Christmas shopping done. If you normally buy gift cards as gifts buy them now and make yorself $20.00 in free grocery money or If you know you will be spending $500.00 at a specific store over the holidays get the gift card now and cash in on $100.00 in free grocerys.
If you are doing any Lowes or Home Depot projects buy the gift cards at Shaws first.
Any stores that you know you are going to buy something in check Shaw’s first and see if there is a gift card for it first. Buy the gift cards and profit $20.00 for every $100.00 you spend.
If you are spending $2000.00 at Home Depot go to Shaws buy 4 sets of 500.00 in Home Depot Gift cards and walk away with $400.00 in Shaws money. Then pay at Home Depot with your gift cards. Also remember to look for a 10% HD coupon and save another $200.00 on your project. Now your 2000.00 project just gave you back a total of $600.00. $2000.00 down to $1400.00 is a great savings!
Remember to plan ahead wherever you are eventually going to shop in the next few months buy a gift card now and it’s a 20% profit. That is a very good investment.
* You can only get $500.00 worth of gift cards at a time. If you want $1000.00 in gift cards be sure to have them rung up separately to ensure your cats print.
*Shaws cats expire 1 week from printing.
