One of the best ways that I know to save money is to stack my rewards. You all know that I use cash back credit cards for all of my purchases. It makes sense that if I am going to buy something I would just use my credit card like a debit card. I make my purchases using the credit card and then pay off the card before I incur any interest or fees.

I also love using rewards sites like Swagbucks where I can earn points which I redeem for gift cards. It makes sense to combine these two methods and stack the rewards so that I can save the most money possible.

One way I do this is for simple purchases like staples for the house. I can earn rewards for purchases made at Walmart if I go through Swagbucks first. If I need to get things like toilet paper or kitty litter I can go through those two sites and not only get the cash back from using my credit card but also earn points for using the shopping portal.

I know many of you will say that shopping portals make you spend more money than you want to but I have only bought the things I would normally buy from the grocery store anyway. I add things to my cart until I qualify for free shipping so that is not a factor either.
