1. I sold an Apple laptop charger
About a year ago, our cat left some teeth marks in my laptop charging cable.
It wasn’t enough to break all the way through the coating, but I figured it was only a matter of time before she took another bite at the cable. So, I got a backup charger, and just kept it in the package for such a day.
Well, my laptop died earlier this year, and I ended up needing to replace the whole thing.
That meant my brand new charging cable was no longer going to be useful. And it was too late to return it.
So of course I listed it on eBay.
And happily, it sold this week!
2. Zoe and I used a B1G1 Starbucks deal
After church on Sunday, she suggested we stop in at Starbucks. Both of us had gift cards in our Starbucks accounts, so our drinks were going to be free.
But as I was placing my order, I saw that my app had a buy one, get one free offer.
I was like, “Hold up, Zoe! Don’t order yet! You can get a free drink when I buy one.”
So then Zoe didn’t have to use her gift card at all.
3. I got free eggs + cheap cheese at Safeway
Zoe needed to stop in for some makeup remover, and as we walked in, I remembered to check the Safeway app to see if there were any good deals.
It’s been slim pickings in the deals of late, but I’m glad I checked this time because I got an offer for a dozen free eggs, plus an offer to get two 8-ounce blocks of cheese for $0.99 each. SWEET.
4. I got a discounted offer on a pair of eBay shoes
I’ve been wanting a pair of blue Converse for a while, so I scrolled through eBay and added a bunch of options to my watchlist.
(There’s something about Converse that makes me want to buy a pair in every color. And since most of my clothes are so neutral, I can usually pair colorful shoes with almost any of my outfits. 😉 )
I checked my email after I hopped off the eBay site, and was surprised to see that I got a bunch of seller offers in my inbox! This has never happened before, but some auto-offer must be kicked off when you add certain items to a watchlist.
I chose an offer that gave me 38% off the original price, and I placed my order.
This pair I bought does need a set of new laces, so I ordered these ones from Amazon, and hopefully, they will be a good match. I’ll let you know!
