Give more and spend less this holiday season


(NC) Nothing brings people together like a common goal. And this year, that’s staying on budget for the holidays.

Everyone wants to give more while spending less, but we don’t all have the time to run from store to store hunting for bargains. What’s a deal seeker to do? Follow these easy tips to make the most of your time and money, all while getting big rewards.

Order online: Avoid getting stuck in the hustle and bustle of holiday shoppers by ordering gifts online from your laptop or phone. The time you save can be put towards spending more time with friends and family.

Be thrifty: Start early and keep an eye out for special sales. Many retailers have Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals to help you get a jumpstart on holiday shopping. Get inspired with coupons and get into the routine of flipping through flyers delivered to your home and online.

Earn big: Stretch your dollars further by using a credit card like the Walmart Rewards Mastercard, which gives you up to 1.25 per cent back in Walmart Rewards Dollars on every purchase at the retailer. The dollars can be redeemed on virtually anything in the store or online, so the possibilities are endless.
