HOW CAN WE PROTECT OUR DEVICES AND OTHER IMPORTANT ITEMS
You spend hundreds on small devices and kids can be very hard one them. You have to be smart. Have you ever bought a new product just to have the screen crack a week later? Let me tell you about this new plan I just discovered. It’s called Protect Your Bubble and their plans allow you to protect everything under your roof, like phones, tablets, computers, electronics and appliances. It doesn’t matter where you bought them, who your carrier is or if they’re more than 30 days old.
Studies show that every three seconds, someone's identity is stolen. And with all the recent data breaches and the fact that today's online retail sales are projected to be much higher than last year, it's important to keep your identity safe. Protect Your Bubble offers Identity Theft Protection. Just go to the website and click on the “Our Products” tab and select “ID Theft" to learn more.
The plans cover everything from Liquid Damage to Cracked Screens, as well as Mechanical Breakdowns. Plus, the more you protect, the more you save! Visit ProtectYourBubble.com/CyberMonday to learn more.
THE SMARTEST WAY TO SHOP ONLINE
I am a big fan of earning rewards while you shop. If you go through reward based websites to do the shopping you will be doing any way you are ahead of the game. One of my favorites is Upromise.com by Sallie Mae. It is a free-to-join rewards program with a mission of helping families save for college. They have more than 850 online retail and dining partners such as QVC, Macy’s, Staples, WalMart.com, Sephora, Lord and Taylor, Gap and more. It’s simple, you just start your shopping at Upromise.com and from there shop at all your favorite stores. In fact, according to a recent Upromise survey regarding holiday shopping, 71% of parents would rather their children receive cash for college instead of a physical gift. Well guess what? Upromise can get your child both!
For the holiday season, Upromise is rolling out special offers so members can receive even more cash back for college this year. Every Tuesday through Dec. 23, you can earn 10% cash back for college with different featured partners including: Sephora, Shoebuy.com, and Fossil. Upromise will also offer a free shipping day on Nov. 26, with dozens of partners’ free shipping offerings in one place. Also, if you get the Upromise World MasterCard you can earn an extra 5% for a total of 10% cash back on online purchases through Upromise.com.
CLOTHING IS ALWAYS A GOOD GIFT
A lot of people wait to update their winter collection until after they see what they get for the holidays. I am a big fan of sweaters because they are warm, comfortable, and always in fashion. The Nautica Women’s Fisherman Sweater collection is my favorite this year because they are comfortable, come in many colors and are classic staple from season to season. With a cable knit through the front and ribbed detail on the back, this cozy and stylish sweater is ideal for layering. Your loved one can dress it up or dress it down and it is super versatile. These look really great, they are a good price point and they come in a variety of colors. I would get one for yourself too
