$5 Free Barnes & Noble Gift Card

Ah, ha!

That crazy Entertainment Books pay out again!

If you haven't gotten yours yet, now is a great time. The prices are reduced right now to only $9.99. And, shipping is reduced, too. My shipping is only $2.49, bringing my total to $12.48.
You can click here to order...but wait! Want an even better deal? ( Do I sound like an infomercial? )

Don't forget Upromise is still offering their $10 sign on bonus w/purchase. So, set up your free account ( don't forget to link your shopping cards/credit cards to begin earning $ on purchases ), and then go shop for an Entertainment Book thru them. You will then get that $10 bonus, plus 14%. So, that is another $1.40 earned. So, your grand total? $1.08!!!

And, Upromise is not only for college students or those saving for college or their kids. You can link you account to anyone...neighbors, grandkids, etc so they get the benefit. Or, if you want, you can withdraw your money at any time. They do suggest you invest it, which is what my family does with ours. I would rather take it out and invest it ( where I can earn even more on the money ), then let it sit in their accounts.

Well, it is now time to get back on topic. That $5 Barnes & Nobles Gift Card! Yippee! But, even if you don't love books like me, this is a great Gift Card to have on hand. It is great for small gifts for teachers ( School or Sunday School ), Stocking Stuffers during Christmas, or to put towards a gift you may buy for someone else.

So, where do you find it? Well, it is for signing up with My Points! Click here to email me for an invite. Which is ANOTHER topic I wanted to cover!

First, if you go to page H103 in your book, you will find the offer. You must sign up thru their link and use the Coupon Code found on that page in your book. Once you sign up, you will earn the points to redeem for that Gift Card, although it does take a bit of time for them to go from Pending to Approved.

Now, why do I love My Points?

It is a wonderful program, even outside of the free Barnes & Noble Gift Card. It is set up similar to Inbox Dollars in regards to getting emails to read every day and earning points for those ( which then convert to free Gift Cards ). So, what I did? I set up an email account just for this. My email was MypointsforCarrie at yahoo dot com. That way, it is the ONLY company sending emails there. I don't want it bogging down my personal email account.

Now, you can earn points that way. But, my favorite reason I use My Points? They have listed in their site, and you get points every time you print a coupon!!

That is right! If you are already clipping coupons, you mind as well get paid to click and print them!

There are other benefits, as well, but the free $5 Gift Card and getting paid to print coupons are at the top of my list. That was all I needed to know in order to begin using their program.

So, I hope you find their program useful, too.

If you don't have an Entertainment Book and don't plan to buy one, you can simply email me to join My Points. You will get 100 welcome points and you can then go to and begin printing coupons. You will not get the $5 B&N Gift Card, if you take this route...but still well worth it.

If you just don't want to buy the ET Book or join My Points, here is the link for
