Dave wanted to buy an Amazon Echo for his mother. The price on Amazon is $179.99. He was ready to spend that and not even look for a better price or a portal to earn cashback, points or miles.
Blasphemy, I said.
So, first I googled for a better price. That took, what 3 minutes? I learned that Bed Bath and Beyond has the exact product on sale for $139.99
That’s a $40 savings right there.
Then I took a quick look at CashBackMonitor.com to see if there were any portals offering cash or points.
Woh! – British Airways Mall is offering 12 Avios per $! That’s about 2000 avios!
I followed the link to the British Airways Avios Mall and learned that there is currently a special promo – TRIPLE AVIOS – for a number of retailers for purchases through May 31st.
Here is the LINK.
This is an awesome promo.
For less than 5 minutes of research, Dave not only saved $40 but he also earned about 2000 Avios.
Who won? Dave and Dave’s mom.
What’s the lesson? Always double check for a better price and always check shopping portals.
What would be even more awesome? If Dave checked for this himself (and he used a credit card that earned even more points or cash).
