Survining a recession is easy if you take advantage of freebies. Become a freeloader! I am not suggesting that you free load off your friends and family or even the government. Businesses give away free stuff everyday. Free cosmetics, free kids meals, free meat, even free money!
Yes free money! My husband and I opened a new Chase personal bank account this weekend. Before we opened it we just happened to get these change of address packets at our local post office; you know those coupons and advertisements that you usually toss in the trash, don't through them away!!! Think of them as free money, sometimes lots of free money! Anyway, we had two coupons that came out of those packets. The coupons were for $125.00 a piece. That is $250.00 for opening a bank account that we had to open anyway!!! Chase deposited $250.00 in our bank account, no questions asked, no stipulations on how we spend it!
As if that were not enough that is not the only thing we freeloaded this weekend! Just so happens the windshield on our Jeep cracked, its ok, we have complete glass coverage. Sence we had to get the windshield replaced anyway, my husband shopped around town for the best deal. We had the insurance company fix our windshield at Speedy Glass and they gave us a gift certificate for Omaha Steaks! We are having a box of gourmet steaks and burgers delivered to our doorstep, for free!
