Buy, Save and Fundraise – let us tell you how you can do all three!

This is a sponsored post. For more information. please see our disclosure statement and policy.

Do you like the thrill of the chase?

Do you love finding the very best possible deal on a branded product?

Let me ask you something else: would you like to buy something and know that some of the $$ you spend will go to your PTA, Kid’s Boy Scout troop, School Band or Angel Tree? Whichever causes you are passionate about.

The great news is, with Give10Back you can do both with every purchase you make!

Most of us tend to buy the same products regularly – think Clorox branded cleaning products, Kitchen wipes or Baby Items like Diapers and wipes for example.

We usually pick these up in our local Walmart or even online at Amazon and get them shipped. What if you could get them shipped to your door and you saved anywhere from 30-60% in the process?

Go now – don’t wait another minute. Open another tab and bookmark Give10Back.

Then remember to go and check every time you have your wallet out ready to pay.

Not only that but they have all types of products. Their range is never going to be Amazon-sized but they get new stock all the time and are surprised daily by new deliveries which they add to the website as quickly as they can.

As we are in the peak of Gift purchases it makes total sense to check what they have and compare prices on all types of products: everything from Household, Toys/Gifts and Kitchen and Home appliances to Sports and Outdoor equipment

I checked a few and found some great examples of huge savings:

  • Xbox One Console with Shadow of War Bundle

Give 10 Back Price: $299, compared to $329 at Amazon (checked Dec 2nd).

  • Baby Einstein 2-in-1 Lights & Sea Activity Gym & Saucer

Give 10 Back Price: $74.99 $119.99. Save $45.00 – 37 % OFF!

Right now there are Toy Drive Donations happening through Toys for Tots and other local drives.

Check out how you can use Give10Back to save money on your toy purchases and teach your kids about Philanthropy too!

So, here is the last and possibly best bit of all!

Fundraising

Any organization can run a Give10Back Online Shopping Fundraiser for free – year round. Every month, a check could be sent to your favorite charity and all you did was buy the products you normally buy! They would get 10% back on every checkout.

Both the Little Elm ISD Education Foundation and Lakewood Elementary PTA both received $1,000 fundraising checks from Give10Back this year.

Registering your school, church, non-profit organization or cause is simple! Just register online here and you’ll receive an email with tips on promoting your fundraising drive and other helpful information.

I’ll leave one last awesome tip for you. They offer free Shipping – in 2 days on all orders over $49.

They throw in a 30-day money back guarantee too!

To find out how they do all of this and meet Walter, one of the founders locally right here in Dallas, watch this:  Give10Back Facebook Live Video

dosh app cashback plano tx

The Dosh App gives you Cashback and Savings at the same time!

The Dosh App continues to line our pocketbooks! 

We need this right now as the Holidays are quickly approaching…

Sometimes it’s so easy, that it seems too good to be true. A couple of months back I was introduced to an App, which for Moms everywhere offers the chance for automatic cashback whenever you use your normal payment cards to pay for everyday items.

I’ve been testing it out and excited that they keep adding new options. The lowest cashback % seems to be 2% but in some cases it is as high as 8-10%!

Recently they added the following:

Forever 21 – 5% cashback in store

Sams Club (yes, Moms – Sams Club!) – 2% in store with a valid membership (not including tyres or gas)

sams club dosh cashback

 

 Denny’s – eat breakfast and get 10% back (in-store)

Cost Plus Market 2% in store and 4% online

Within moments, your transaction is tracked back to your Dosh account and the money is added to your wallet. You can connect your Bank Account, Paypal or even choose to donate your wallet funds to a Charity of your choice.

This month, they added a new way of boosting your Wallet, by using the power of chance and social sharing.

You’ll be notified straight away that you can try the Cashback Multiplier if you choose to share your earnings with a friend via Facebook and Twitter. Once you do, you can take a spin!

dosh cashback plano texas

Then see what the Multiplier gives you!

Not only that..

At this time of the year we are also looking ahead and planning our Thanksgiving trips. Travel is a great way to boost your Dosh.

Dosh has a large number of hotels listed. You can easily see the offers they have and compare pricing against leading Travel providers. Not only that, but you should take into account the cashback to get a real price!

When you combine your hotel with local restaurants who are also listed in the App the money really starts to add up.

So, what are you waiting for?

Download it, connect your cards and watch the Cashback and the Savings add up all at the same time!

Shopping for the Holidays?

It’s never too soon to get started! 

It’s nearly time to start thinking about Shopping for the Holidays. Most of our Plano Moms have been talking about it in our Facebook Group and buying presents ahead of time.

When you go online there are tons of options which provide Cashback through the Dosh App – whether you are booking Travel or Gifts or Household items!

Did you know Dosh users have already received more than $100,000 in just the past few months? Whether from hotel stays for end-of-summer vacations, or back to school shopping – when you link up your card on file, it automatically tracks your spending and gives you cashback.

Each month, new offers and retailers are being added. Just this past month alone, they’ve added great offers from Hollister and Forever 21, plus many more!

Many household favorites are already listed: Old Navy, GAP, Bed Bath & Beyond, Hobby Lobby, walmart.com and so many other common every day places are included.

Eating Out

In addition to buying items, there is a growing list of places to eat out locally. There are so many places near me, that have a cashback amount from 2% up to 10% on your family’s meals out.

cashback dosh money app1

Booking Travel!

One of the things I love about the app, is that you can book hotels through the App and give generous cash back amounts for booking your travel!

So, when you are planning your Thanksgiving or Holiday travel plans, make sure to check the app first before you book

Cashback money dosh app

Being Charitable!

I choose to use my Dosh to support victims of Hurricane Harvey by donating from my Dosh Wallet directly to a charity organization. The American Red Cross is just one of many of the charities listed that is offering relief in Houston.

So, where do you start?

Link your cards with the app so that you can get the Dosh in your account as you make purchases! Add them in (securely) and you don’t have to think about it again!
