This year, a few of us Savings.com DealPros decided to have some fun with a Secret Santa gift exchange. The only restriction: $15 is the maximum amount we could spend. It really is possible to give someone a great gift for under $15!
My draw for the Secret Santa challenge was Amber from Coupon Connections. She told me via Elfster that she likes accessories, and I came across the scarf above while shopping in Macy’s! The original price was $39.99, and here’s how I got it for under $15:
Minus 25% off sale: $29.99
Minus 25% off coupon: $22.49
Minus $10 Macy’s Rewards Card: only $12.49!
My Secret Santa was Crystal from The Thrifty Mama. She sent me the Big One Microplush Throw pictured above, and it’s really comfy! A $5 Starbucks gift card was thrown in too 🙂
The regular price on this throw is $39.99, but with the Kohl’s Black Friday sale and a coupon code, Crystal was able to pick it up for only $5 plus tax! Add in the $5 Starbucks gift card, and the total cost came to just $11.
Does your family have a spending limit? How are you able to stay within that limit?
