Ebates App: Limited Time Only Daily Deals + 25% Cash Back

Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  A few days ago, I noticed that the Ebates app started sending me notifications about limited time only daily deals.  I believe on Thursday the offer was a S’well water bottle and yesterday was a crayon set from Toys R Us.  Both deals were offering 25% cash back, but I didn’t purchase either deal.  Today’s deal is for a Cupshe hooded sweatshirt.  Trust me, I am not in the market for a Cupshe Hooded Sweatshirt, but if you are, you can buy it through the Ebates app and get 25% cash back.  This cash back amount is specific to this product and does not include any other items from Cupshe (I’m still not exactly sure how to exactly pronounce Cupshe, it is “cup” + “shh”?).

Anyway, download the Ebates app from the Apple Store or Google Play store and sign into your Ebates account.  If you are not an Ebates member, you can sign up for a free account and earn a $10 bonus after you make your first purchase of $25 or more (I will also get a bonus after you make your first purchase – thank you!).  After you sign into your Ebates account, you should see the bell icon in the upper right corner.  Click that and you can see today’s daily deal.

2 Podcast Picks: Abroaders (Travel Hackers) & How I Built This (SWA Founder Herb Kelleher Interview)

Good morning, happy Thursday and welcome to the first day of December.  This year is flying by, am I the only one that thinks so?  Anyway, as I walked to work yesterday, I listened to one of my favorite podcast: NPR’s How I Built This.  This podcast only has 12 episodes (as of December 1, 2016) and they interview successful CEOs and founders of various companies, ranging from technology (Airbnb and Instagram), fashion (Spanx), music (L.A. Reid and Radio One) and food (Clif Bar and Samuel Adams).  But the most recent podcast I listened to was about Southwest Airlines’ founder, Herb Kelleher.  He is currently 88 years old and I love the way he speaks.  He reminds me of how my grandfather tells stories and jokes with other people.  I wouldn’t mind sitting next to Herb on a Southwest Airlines flight and listening to him talk for the entire journey.  If you want to be inspired to start a business or need the motivation to grow your business, listen to How I Built This (you can listen to all their episodes online for free) or on iTunes or wherever else you listen to podcasts.

A “Quick” Blog Update: New Writers = More Content

Good morning everyone – it feels like a long time since I last wrote those words in a blog post.  I have been really busy at work the last 2 weeks preparing for Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Oh and my parents were in town over Thanksgiving weekend and I celebrated my 27th birthday.  Luckily, things are starting to calm down now, so I hope to get back to my usual writing routine soon.  I am in the process of making changes to my blog and I wanted to keep everyone up to date.

Introducing my First New Writer – Tonei

My good friend Tonei (pronounced Tony) joined the TWG family last week and he wrote his first post a few days ago: Travel with Tonei: 15% Off Almost Everything at Target for 2 Days.  In a perfect world, I would have introduced Tonei in a short blog post before his first blog post was published and explained why I think he would make a great addition to TWG.  Unfortunately, that did not happen, but better late than never.

Tonei and I met at the SF Travel Hackers Meetup Group last year and I have always enjoyed talking with him and listening to his travel (mis)adventures.  At our most recent meetup, we talked about his recent move to Mexico City, visiting the multiple Centurion Lounges at Mexico City’s airport, MSing abroad, and future travel plans.  While listening to his stories, I was constantly thinking, “This would make a great blog post,” over and over in my head.  I told him that his stories were so interesting and that others would probably like to read about his stories too.  My writing philosophy is, “I want to write articles that I would want to read.”  If it interests me, it will probably interest other people as well.

Welcome Tonei, I am looking forward to reading your upcoming blog posts :) Continue reading

Travel with Tonei: 15% Off Almost Everything at Target for 2 Days

Buenos diás! My name is Tonei Glavinic, and I’m the newest contributing writer to Travel with Grant! I met Grant as a co-organizer of the San Francisco Travel Hackers when I lived in the Bay Area, and we’ve stayed in touch since I moved to Mexico City. I plan to share stories about my (mis)adventures in manufactured spending, mistake fares, traveling to Mexico and elsewhere in the world, and various travel hacks and strategies to help make your trips easier and more rewarding.
