Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday I think it’s safe to say that holiday shopping is in full throttle mode. Woot, woot! And while I love nothing more than finding that perfect gift, it can all hit the wallet a bit hard at the same time. Especially with this little guy on the way any day now who is quickly proving that babies definitely don’t come free!
As you might already know I’m already a bit of a points junkie. I can’t help it! I’m officially addicted to using earned points to get even more to give. So when American Express Membership Rewards offered up a holiday shopping challenge how could I possible say no?! My challenge, for $250, 40,000 points, and some savvy shopping I’m going to find that special gift for five lucky peeps on my list and share with you next week how I stayed “on point” (sorry cheesy joke). I already found one item from Etsy shop modmomME on Small Business Saturday, proving you can shop small even with the click of a mouse (a cause I fully support and hope to carry through throughout the season!). It’s an adorable diaper clutch, perfect for my dear friend who is a fashionable new mom. One down, four to go! Stay tuned and make sure to enter our giveaway (details below)!
