Are you ready for Back to School yet?
Or… are all the essentials bought for Back to School shopping yet?
Let American Express help!
It’s awesome because there are SO MANY items you can purchase with your points from American Express. I’m a HUGE AMEX user, and my points just gather on up, so it’s fun to be able to see how many I have, and then go put them all to good use! Using your Membership Points can be such a money and time saver for moms and dads because you don’t have to dig around for coupon codes or head into the busy shopping centers and stores! You can just buy right from home with your already accumulated points! Not to mention, if you stock up on gift cards, you have the advantage of shopping at home, at your fave places, for “free!” VERY easy!
I’m excited to curate my VERY own Back to School essentials with my AMEX points!
Are you ready to see what I’ve gathered for the hallways and homework time for my sons!?
Here goes… I’m playing with 50,000MR for my curation!
Look what I’m going to score! 🙂
1) Amazon Kindle
This is the perfect item to have in my house for my son Alexander. He’s just learning to read and I know I can download kids books for him and really be able to spend some time helping him. As much as I love the feel of “real” books, there’s something VERY convenient about keeping him on the o with 100’s of books right at his dispose on his Kindle!
2) Old Navy Gift Card – 5000MR
For $50 I can score a TON of items for the boys at Old Navy! It’s awesome to see just how much I can stock up on. They need essentials like crewneck tees and sweats, and when Old Navy has a SALE… they have a SALE! My $50 will be doubled in know time with their offers for Back to School. BIG NEED for the McClelland boys!
3) Pottery Barn Kids Gift Card
My Henry is starting Pre-K this year where they learn all about letters! Pottery Barn for Kids has the BEST wall hanging letters ever! The quality is amazing and all the other boys have their initials hanging in their room, I think it’s time to do that for Henry. He’ll be learning a ton this year, so I want to give him a head start at home with his own special letters!
4) iHome App Enhanced Stereo System with Dual Alarm FM Clock for iPad/ iPhone/ iPod
Waking up is never easy in the McClelland household! To have an alarm clock in William and Alexander’s room would be amazing! Not to mention, since they have an iPad, they can charge it up while they sleep! And… oh, yes… listen to some tunes once they’re up! TOTAL ESSENTIAL!
5) Nike Gift Card – 7500 MR
Gym time is a BIG time in elementary school. For $75, I need to stock up William and Alexander with a new pair. I love gift cards because I can have them shop online right after I purchase my points! Totally easy and totally doable!
And all that for just under 50,000MR !! NOT BAD, huh!!??
