If you shop online a lot check out mypoints.com. You click thru their link to the store you want to shop from and you get points for the money you spend. Then you trade in the points for gift cards. I've used it for years and I have not spent a penny of my own money at Barnes and Noble in just about as long because I keep getting their gift cards and then using them to get more points.

After watching Confessions of a Shopoholic, one quote stuck with me- "Instead of a relationship with my credit card, I have a relationship with someone who loves me back." I didn't expect to learn anything from that movie, but when I am bored and tempted to online shop, I remind myself of that quote and it helps me kill the urge to use the card!
I use Kraftfoods.com 1 bag 5 dinners menu and use a local grocery stores online shopping service. I only put things in my cart that are on the list and I don't have to step foot in the store which saves time and money because I'm not tempted to buy things I don't need.
