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!


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

Grocery Pick-Up and Delivery Services

With our busy world today it’s so nice that stores and restaurants are starting to offer more delivery services. We have several around town and some larger on-line companies are using it as well. Save time and shop online! As a busy Mom, I can honestly say getting groceries for pick up is one of my new favorite things to do! Here are some great choices for grocery pick up and delivery services available in Plano.

grocery pick up and delivery services in plano

Kroger Click List

I am new to shopping at Kroger but so far I really like this. It runs like most of the others but they do charge a $4.95 fee for this service. Your first 3 trips are free though so make sure you do at least 3! I haven’t had any issues so far but some items I’ve wanted they’ve been out of so they will sub you with something else. You can also earn your Kroger gas points so this is a great service to me! You shop online and choose your time then go to the store and park in the special parking. You call once you park and say what lane you’re in and they will deliver your stuff to your car. No tips are accepted.

Walmart Grocery Online

Walmart started this service last year and slowly more and more people are trying it. There’s no service fee, but you do have to meet certain total. I think it’s around $30. That is certainly easy to do at Walmart. Stock up on paper products and there’s your $30. If you are new they offer a promo code for first-time customers so make sure you look for that.  It works the same sat Kroger where you call and park and tell them which lane and they will bring it out. The Walmart at Spring Creek/75 does this service and they do have nice covered awnings that will make it shaded so it’s nice in the hot summer! No tips are accepted.

Tom Thumb Delivery

This is not a curbside pick up like the others but a delivery service. You can save $20 and get your first delivery free by using the promo code TWENTY at checkout. They have 1-hour delivery windows and you can get same day delivery if you order before 8:30 am.

Amazon Fresh  

This is a fairly new service through Amazon. There is a $15 a month fee and a $10 fee if your order is under $40. Amazon Prime members can get the first month free! Fresh groceries delivered to your door!
