What an awesome weekend! We spent the last 2 days at Cedar Point, where I completed my second half marathon. Take a look at Instagram here in case you missed it! We had a ton of fun but now it’s back to normal for awhile. I did almost all my shopping on Friday so I wouldn’t have to worry about it after coming home yesterday.
I found an awesome app called Fetch Rewards! It’s a rebate app similar to Ibotta, but you scan your receipt and the app does all the work for you. No more clipping offers and wasting time looking for what you need. Just scan, and Fetch will look over the receipt and give you points, plus bonus points for buying one of hundreds of different brands! I’ve scanned about 7 receipts so far and I’m already almost at a $3.00 gift card. Click here to create an account, use my promo code PV2QH, and receive an extra 2,000 points when you scan your first receipt! (Not an affiliate link, but I do earn 2,000 points if you use my code)
