You know that feeling when you are finally able to purchase something you have wanted for a long time? Something that you weren’t able to afford but really wanted!
I had that amazing feeling last month! I was finally able to purchase a Roomba!
How was I able to afford such a luxury item while being a stay at home mom? My Norwex business did help. But the deal I got made it possible to convince my hubby!
So here is the breakdown of how I got such a deal and the steps you can take to get an item on your wishlist.
I did some research first. I found out what model would be a good fit for my home. I wanted one in the middle range so that I knew it would be able to tackle all the dog hair in our home. I shopped around to find out what the regular price was anywhere from $400 – $800.
Next I started watching for sales from a few companies that sold them. During this “searching” time I received my usual monthly e-mails from various places. One that caught my eye was my Petro-Points. I had enough points to redeem for a $250 Best Buy gift card! Needless to say I jumped right to the Best Buy website and checked out what they had to offer. At the time they had a few on sale but I wasn’t quite ready to purchase yet.
I let the idea sink in for a bit. While watching the Best Buy flyer every week to see if the Roombas were on sale. So once they were at a discount I was able to get a screaming deal on it!
How great was the deal? Check out this break down:
Regular Price: $499.99
Sale Price: $349.99
Gift Card: – $250.00
Total cost: $144.49
How is that for a great deal? Have you ever used points to make a large purchase? Tell me about it in the comments below.
